Dylan Royce is a former teen pop idol trying to transition into a serious rock musician. Between his manager and label, they've done a lousy job of making that happen. When Ariel Watson, his new publicist, takes over and he gets the chance to sub on tour for Riptide (a band he's idolized forever), Dylan has a shot at being the musician he's always wanted to be and the woman he's adored from afar.
There's a lot to like about Dylan, especially considering he'd been " handled" for so long. His situation made me think about all the young teen stars who struggle with similar transitions, being totally mismanaged in the process by recording labels. I loved his heart and selflessness. Ariel came to him at the most perfect time and their relationship was refreshing.
It's a short story with some very strong themes, mostly about staying true to who you are and being clear about your purpose. I really liked Dylan and Ariel and how their personal journeys exemplified those themes. This series is a little gem in the rough.
(I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review)
Dylan Royce is our hero, who is a teen pop idol, whose career is slowly slowing down as he is no longer a teenager. His manager wants Dylan to do a makeover promoting him as a sex magnet. The manager gets Dylan a short stint with a top band that is known for their wild escapades, which will give Dylan the exposure of changing his image.
Enter Ariel Watson, our heroine, who is the sister of Riptide’s band leader, as well as a publicist. Ariel is asked to help promote and change Dylan’s image. At first, all she sees is the teen idol, who still dresses the same, and isn’t sure she wants to accept this. Dylan had met Ariel years before, and has dreamed of her all this time. He sets out to prove to her that he is not the teenage idol, bit is in fact a sexy bad boy hidden under those clothes. When Dylan tries to prove his point by giving Ariel a steamy kiss, she accepts the job. It is up to her to change his image to the public, and keep herself away from becoming involved.
What follows is a sweet and sexy story, with a couple that we fall for right away. I loved Dylan and Ariel together. Of course there will be obstacles that will threaten their relationship, especially when the public begins to see Dylan in another light. Rather than tell too much more, I suggest you read this fun sexy romance, get to meet all the other band members and enjoy the music background theme. Christi Barth had created another wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Intriguing concept. I think back to the boy bands and when one of them wants to steer their career in another direction, so many fail and I could see this scenario perfectly. I liked Dylan, he is down to earth and even when forced to act outside his comfort zone he does it. Ariel you get why she is doing what she is doing, I liked that Dylan called her out frequently. Great book.
I enjoyed watching the dynamics between Dylan and Ariel and being taken behind the scenes with more rock stars! While sometimes things seemed to move quickly, I had to remind myself that this is a novella, so the build up in a relationship is much quicker than that of a full length novel.
Barth did an excellent job giving the two of these characters depth and the plot overall was interesting to me. It’s not one I have read about before. The chemistry between the two was tangible, as was their passion, which lead to some hot scenes. What I adored the most about these two was the respect for one another which was so palpable you couldn’t help but root for Dylan and Ariel for a happy ever after!
If you haven’t read the first book in the series, The Opposite of Right, you can still read the second one without missing a beat, as the main characters are new. I did enjoy the appearances by characters we meet in the first one, specifically Cam. After reading this one you will want to go back and learn all about Riptide! The Reverse of Perfection is a fabulous book that will take you away from reality, plunge you into the world of rock stars and sweep you off your feet with romance. I highly recommend you give it a read!
