Review: Idol by Kristen Callihan
I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?
As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse —and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.
The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.
THREE POINT FIVE STARS
Rock god, Killian, has escaped to a small town where he hopes to recoup without anyone knowing he is. His first day there doesn’t go so well… he is found drunk on the neighbor’s lawn looking like a homeless person.
The neighbor, Libby, has no clue who this passed-out drunk is on her lawn. Once Killian sobers up she still has no clue who he is. For Killian that is part of Libby’s appeal – not knowing who he is. He gets to be just a normal guy.
Over the next few months, their friendship/attraction grows until the day when Killian’s band manager and his cousin show up to take him back home so he can get ready to tour. At this point, the summer romance feels like it’s ending, a very Grease (movie) vibe. Except for Killian wants her to join him but she refuses. Which she later regrets. Once on tour, he reaches out again for her to join him. The story starts to take a turn with Libby on tour with the band now.
Overall an enjoyable read. I’m really curious to read the next book in the series because it’s about the hot band manager. Hopefully, I’ll get to it in the next few months.
