Book Tour for Harmony by Skye Turner (Review)

As a reader OBSESSED with rock star romances I enjoyed the first installment in the A Lil Bit Country & A Lil Bit Rock & Roll series that brings together the bad boys of rock with the good girls of country music and am thrilled to bring you the next book in the series today.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of Harmony by Skye Turner, along with my impressions of it, then add it to your bookshelf!

Sean Scott, lead guitarist of Destiny Fades to Blue, the “it” boys of rock, is used to having any woman he wants. He’s never at a loss for companionship and his philandering ways are frequently on the front page of the tabloids.
Summer Anderson, one of the founding members of Sweet Southern Sass, the platinum selling sweethearts of country, has never had much time for romance with her busy touring schedule and all that living the life of a country superstar entails.
While on a crossover tour with both bands, Summer finds herself wildly attracted to the tattooed, bad boy of rock, but the close proximity also gives her a front row seat to Sean’s revolving door of bedmates.
Sean knows that Summer is attracted to him. He’s interested but knows that she isn’t the type of woman he goes for though he loves the attention… until she suddenly treats him no differently than anyone else.
When another man enters the picture and Summer seems interested, Sean must make a choice.
Is he willing to forego his womanizing ways for a chance with Summer?
Can Summer trust that he’s sincere in his affection?
Will the sweetheart of country decide that the only relationship she needs with the bad boy of rock be as a tour mate or can these two find success in the rhythm of love?
When the sweethearts of country meet the bad boys of rock...more than the charts heat up.

Fans of romances set in the sensual world of music will find themselves drawn to this decadent delight full of steamy encounters, with just a bit of angst, as the bad boy of rock falls for the good girl of country music.  Fears over fidelity, issues of jealousy, and possessive fans are just a few of the roadblocks to HEA in this second installment in Ms. Turner's series that charmed me along with making me blush.  As their tour continues, so too does my enjoyment of these entertaining characters trying to live their lives and find love under the glare of the spotlight.

Sean Scott's gained notoriety for his revolving bedroom door.  He's a player, having sex with numerous women as befits his rock star status, but it's beginning to lose its allure.  Before meeting country crooner Summer he never felt the need to apologize for his behavior, but the feelings she's engendering in him have him wanting to be a better man.  He's never committed to any woman before either but she's the first to see past his bad boy facade to the good guy beneath the guyliner, tats, and blue hair.  Coming out as someone's boyfriend though puts their trust to the test in a relationship full of erotic encounters, and moments of jumping to conclusions, that put their HEA in jeopardy.  Through everything though I adored Sean!  He was open and honest, never sugarcoating his past.  He acknowledged his highly sexualized past but never made excuses for it and in so doing he showed why Summer was different from the others. His reasons for wanting her were truly romantic and heartfelt and endeared him to me.  Sean was at turns fun and flirty, as well as scorching in his erotic interludes with Summer as he was a master of sexual innuendos.

Summer may be one of the good girls of Sweet Southern Sass, but she's immediately drawn to bad boy Sean the moment they meet.  Though their connection was crackling from the get-go she couldn't look past his being a player at first.  She thought only a good guy would claim her heart, but bad boy Sean soon shows that he's a bad boy with a heart of gold in their scorching relationship of opposites attracting.  Worries over being enough, and encounters with crazed female fans, weigh on their burgeoning relationship and led to a bit of rockiness as she dealt with her feelings.  At the end of the day though, who can deny the truth that's in front of her...that she's tamed the bad boy of rock! Summer's a likable character who tries to do right, but sometimes falters, as she's honest and doesn't want to hurt people's feelings.  Sean brings out a wild side in her though that was entertaining and added to their already combustible connection.  By the end of the story I found them to be a formidable couple with a solid relationship that left me cheering.

There was a sense of familiarity when reading this book as its narrative felt similar to the previous book in this series.  Good girl fell for bad boy with his past causing a few doubts in the HEA.  Thankfully, the issues keeping them apart this time around were far less melodramatic.  That's not to say that my enjoyment was any less though as I enjoyed the characters for their realism and likability, along with the erotic interludes nicely spaced throughout the story. The other members of both bands are slowly moving to the forefront in this book as the four of them start deaing with their own romantic entanglements. They're an equally likable cast who have me intrigued to see if two of them give in to their attraction and another moves on from a cheating boyfriend. Ultimately fans of romances set in the music world will enjoy this depiction of living on the road and giving your all for the fans, while falling for the sexy rocker in a relationship that I rooted for every step of the way.

My rating for this is a B+

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
