Just finished, Guarded Star, by Christine Ashworth. Not a book to share with my 14 year old daughter as was with the first of this series, but….LOVED IT! It caught me right from the start and never let go. This story was fun, sexy, and had a good suspenseful mystery thrown against the backdrop of the music industry. It was a satisfying read from beginning to the end. I liked the character development. I totally got Evie – youthful, talented, smart and sassy. And Jake…LOVED HIM…I want one of him for myself! All man, strong, sexy, protective, supportive, encouraging the woman to be all she could be, devoted, honest – OMG this could go on….Yummers! Felt like I could really see them in my mind’s eye. The dialogue felt real, not what we’d wish someone said. But more like a fly on the wall listening in to people’s conversations. I like the style of this writer. Already looking forward to reading Book 3 in the Star Tide Series. Hurry up and get it out here….A definite fan of Christine Ashworth stories!!!!
I also appreciated a story about the music industry that was realistic, especially the little details like when Evie would replace guitar strings. Her lyrics were actually who acted like a professional songwriter and her lyrics sounded like a real song, not just some rhymes by a writer. This is one book that could come with a soundtrack!
I really liked this story both the story line and the way it read. Ms. Ashworth has a very easy going, friendly, pleasant way with her words. The story was well written with a nice pace and no obvious errors. She took time with her character development and it paid off. Both leads were compelling and interesting. Something you would think would be an obvious thing to do but so often is not.
Evie was absolutely easy to love. No matter what happened to her she seemed to make the best of it, choosing to see the good and positive when things were darkest. Jake was bound and determined to live up to the promise he made to his dying friend and nothing more.... too bad no one told Evie the rules. The cute little Pixie had his head going round and round, in just the way a good romance story should.
A very, good book indeed.
This is a F/M Book
Evie is an irrisistable character. Despite her miserable childhood, she is optimistic and forgiving. She has a vulnerable innocence about her, yet in some ways, she is wise beyond her years. Jake is a natural protector having grown up with 4 younger sisters. He tries to think of Evie as a little sister to keep his mind on the job, ever mindful of the 14 years between them. They both try to guard their hearts. But the romance builds as the stalking esculates.
I really liked this book. The story flowed and built to an exciting climax. The characters were natural and likeable. Except for the stalker, of course. Try this book. I think you'll like it, too.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
