Dangerous Rock by Crystal Kaswell - Book Review

33857750Dangerous Rock by Crystal Kaswell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Published March 2017

I’m married to a rock star.
And I don’t even know his last name.

There’s a tall, tattooed man in my bed.
Not any tall, tattooed man.
He’s a rock star.
A sex god.
And now he’s my husband.
Last night, I married Joel.
It’s ridiculous. I’m a good girl. I don’t get into trouble. I don’t look twice at bad boys.
I can’t stay married to a rock star.
But there’s something about Joel. Not just the way his green eyes light up when he smiles, or the way he makes me laugh, or the way he makes me shake with pleasure–
I’m not sure I can walk away.

Bella Chase is a challenge.
With the tight bun and the cute cardigan, she’s as prim and proper as they come.
My only plan for the night is getting her under me, screaming my name.
Filling her with so much pleasure she begs me to stop.
I didn’t plan on marrying her.
But now that she’s my wife, I’m not about to let her go.

Well the sex was pretty great. Truth it might be what got me to stick around.

While reading I had a pro con list running through my head that was basically going to be my review. Unfortunately I didn't write them all down and have ended up with more cons.

Pro: Pretty hot sex scenes. In pretty interesting locations. (I wasn't kidding when I said it's why I stuck around.)

Con: The conversations afterwards. These two just met each other, so yeah most likely they're driven by lust, so the "getting to know you" process is just blah.

Con: Dumb innuendos, that had me constantly rolling my eyes. Can we not make everything about sex?

Con: Broken characters. Love yourself first would you?

Con: Repetitive. I had many moments that had me thinking "Didn't I just read this line?" I did. A few chapters before.

Con: All the characters "talk with their eyes," example: She looks at me as if to say more. If you don't know how to read a person you'll probably be pretty screwed in this world because they're always giving off some kind of look.

Con: Way too many Harry Potter references. I get it she's a book worm like me and it's her safe place but really enough already.

Pro: I came back for it, I had actually given up on this but really did want to know how the story ends for these two. And it kind of left a lasting impression, I can't say what it is exactly but I do have moments where I think back on it. And really even looking at it gives me an unexplainable emotion that few books do.

Final thought: I can't stand romances with prolonged problems that can easily be resolved if the characters would just talk to each other. You'd save the three of us a lot of unnecessary emotion if one of you would just express yourself!
Would I consider reading more from the series? Maybe, I think these books are really a "in the mood" type of thing and I know my mood definitely effected some of my thoughts on it.
