enjoyable for a quick read. This would be a good book for someone who enjoys quick stories and doesn't have much time to read. Not a meaty novel but an enjoyable quick read

I know, I know. Most people are already exiting the review because its a Harlequin book and that's rather sad. As most people know, I love my Harlie's and promote, talk about and holler has loud as I can about them. I chose to read a Presents Extra for a number of reasons. The first reason is that I haven't read one in over a year and secondly, I love Nicola Marsh's Harlequin Romances. I was not disappointed in picking this one up. Charli is a complicated character as first. She is a tour manager for the premier record label in Australia. She was literally thrown out of her house at an early age and was picked up by Hector, the label founder; she was mentored, nurtured and grew with his help. The one thing that she really never experienced was love. Luca was Hector's grandson and was never accepted as a member of the family based on his father's never acceptance of him. When Hector needed Luca to tag along with Charli as the finance manager on Storm Varth's (the name is awesome) comeback tour, Luca and Charli didn't expect to fall in love. Ms. Marsh has created two lovable and likeable characters. Charli hides behind her job and her snarky attitude. Afraid to trust herself and her feelings for Luca. Luca, on the other hand, never experienced what it was like to be truly loved and accepted. What started off as flirting and strong innuendo between Charli and Luca ended with hurt feelings and hearts broken. While this is a Harlequin Presents Extra, the bedrooms scenes are tasteful, loving, hot but not graphic. You could lend this book to your mother or grandmother and not be embarrassed. They are emotional and thought provoking. My heart broke for both of them at one time and I really worried about them. The dialogue is crisp, clean and hilarious. The secondary characters are supporting and not intrusive. I highly recommend Sex, Gossip and Rock & Roll for anyone that wants an emotional satisfying read with hilarious flirting and a sigh worthy ending.

Review by Desere: When I think of my favorite song or band I often think of what is must be like for the musician on the other side of that song or band.How personal is their lives really and how do they cope with being in the public eye and do heir relationships actually really stand up to the test or are they really just true playboys? What about the lives of their managers and friends how are they affected by the celebrity status of those they are associated with? In Sex,Gossip and Rock and Roll by Nicola Marsh we get a look into the other side of the world the part we as the fans never see and meet the people on the other side of the stage so to speak. Luca Petrelli was inspired by the gorgeous Matthew McConnaughey who I am sure most woman will agree can send any hot blooded woman into overdrive! Now just like Matthew,Luca is irresistibly sexy, cool as ice and a real catch,always in the public eye, very successful,and not the kind to back down when he has his heart set on something or someone for that matter. Unlike Luca, Charli Nash (inspired by Jennifer Aniston) is not the kind to be duped over by some fancy International star and definitely not by Luca ,except the man is so infuriatingly irresistible she cant help it. And very soon into the story she and Luca end up doing much more than just discussing Luca's career. Sex and lots of it, Gossip definitely all the way to every single tabloid in the country and Rock and Roll all night long page after page!! The book is packed with electric passion and and life truly is a song for Luca and Charli's story. Nicola Marsh has outdone herself with this one and it is definitely not to be missed. If you like me and are a big Nicola Marsh fan then you definitely will not be disappointed in this her latest offering of true love overcoming in the most interesting of worlds!

Set in Australia, this book reminds me of the old Mills and Boon Romances. Because of this, I had a lovely wave of nostalgia while reading this book. Having said that, please, be assured it is definitely a contemporary novel, and is completely set in the here and now. One of the threads that caused the nostalgia was the constant verbal antagonism and misconceptions between the hero and the heroine. The near constant bickering was in direct contrast to the heat produced when they finally consummated their physical relationship. I also enjoyed the fact that the story was set in Australia. This was not a main focus in the story, but rather, it just happened to be set there. There were some nice historical/descriptive sections when Charli was investigating places for Storm to take his son, or actually being in those places. It was a nice addition to the tension and bickering described in the rest of the story. Luca, our hero, seems like many - sure of his dominance, and his "rightness", and out to get what he wants. And Charli, while being a strong, independent woman, is grounded in rejection and self-doubt. Luca's Grandfather (and Charli's boss) plays a pivotal role in their relationship. He's kind of the "tie" that gift-wraps their relationship. Nothing new, nothing ingenious about this story. But a nice read, and one that will put a smile on your face!

Charli loves her job taking care of rock stars while they are touring. See that hotels,publicity,thier special wants and needs are taken care of so its the best tour it can be. She doesn't baby sit. Her boss has his playboy grandson comming to take care of the money since he fired the accountant. She goes to pick him up at hotel and he answers in a towel. Charli thinks he is hot but has not time for him. Especially since Luca has not been back to see his grandfather Hector in ten years. Charli at 16 her mother kicked her out of the house and she lived on the streets for two weeks. She was actually sleeping in Hector shed 10 years ago. Hector took her in and gave her a home, helped her graduate and gave her a job. Charli is afraid Luca is back to take advantage of His grandfather. Luca father never acknowledged him but when his grandfather found out he paid for Luca education and set up a trust fund for him. Luca father died 10 years ago and then two weeks later his mother. So he is afraid to get close to anyone. Luca found a lot of pictures of his grandfather and Charli at different events and thinks she is a gold digger. Storm a ageing rock and roll star is trying to make a comeback. Storm also brought his 7 yr old son tiger on tour with him. So he wanted to see some fun places with his son and spend time with him. Storm was a pain who drank a lot but was a good father even with his past at sleeping around. They went panning for gold, down into the gold mine. Sounded like fun. They went to a dragon museum. Tiger was proud of his father. Luca and Charli both have a lot of issues with abandoned by thier parents and are afraid of getting too close, but they do. This is the first time I have read a book by Nicola Marsh but hopefully not the last book of hers that I will read. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

SEX, GOSSIP AND ROCK & ROLL is a fabulous story by author Nicola Marsh and would release as Harlequin Presents. Charli doesn't do love and relationships. She's spent her life trying to regain power by staying on top of her job, staying in control all the time after being tossed out on the street by her mother when she was sixteen. Saved by music mogul Hector Landry, CEO of Australia's biggest recording company, she owed him. But surely he was asking too much of her to babysit his grandson? But she enjoyed clashing with Luca Petrelli too much! Now it wasn't exactly babysitting, more of Luca tagging along the concert tour as a number-cruncher. For she found out he was a successful businessman and supporter of various charities. After being rejected by his father numerous times, Luca, himself kept a wall around his heart. Could he allow Charli too close? And will Charli trust that Luca wouldn't leave her? I loved the dialogue and the sparring between Luca and Charli. The author's use of witty dialogue is astounding. It's a truly magical read and a keeper for your shelf. SEX, GOSSIP and ROCK & ROLL is an outstanding story with great tension, good fast pace and a fabulous plot. Nicola Marsh once again delivered a super romance with a strong spirited heroine, a deliciously breath-taking hero and woven a tale which is filled with emotion and sizzle with a very nice happy ever after!
