Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm.
Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.
When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?
This is the perfect summer read for a day at the beach or something else relaxing. It was the perfect blend of sexy and entertaining, and I could not turn the pages fast enough.
I found this story to be relatable, despite how unlikely the whole scenario might seem. Summer and Jeanette’s friendship and dynamic reminded me a lot of the way that my best friend and I act with one another. I could totally see myself setting her up with some guy for a hot, steamy night of fun. They are always there for one another, even though sometimes get a little rocky, and I think that is true for a lot of best friends.
Summer and Malcolm both really matured and grew a lot throughout the course of the book, and it was great to see the changes slowly unfold through the story, but sometimes I just wanted to slap them across the face and tell them to open their eyes. If only they knew what the reader can obviously see was going on.
I am looking forward to seeing what other delights Cathrine Goldstein brings with the rest of The New York Artists series.
I give Summer of Irreverence – The Rock Star 5/5 stars. You can purchase it from Amazon by clicking on the book’s cover image below:
