Fan of sexy rock star and second chance love? If your answer is yes and it should be, then you should definitely pick up Catherine Goldstein’s latest release Summer of Irreverence. It has all the feel good elements that I find very important to any good read. I will admit I was slightly nervous before decided to give Summer of Irreverence a chance despite the fact I’ve enjoyed previous work of Catherine, but that was within a different genre lucky me her talents knows no bounds. Summer Wynters wanted to experience life with a manly man before settling down to complete her studies as a vet surgeon and what better way to do that then to bed the hottest rock star Malcolm Angel. Summer didn’t have any expectations further than a one night tryst in the sheets, but due to a small misunderstanding things did not go as plan. One would say things went better than expected Summer was granted a do over date with Malcolm. Like many heroines Summer was an introvert and didn’t think much of herself. She even has the outgoing model bestfriend that I felt bad for, but I’m sure that could be another story. Malcolm Angel is on top of his game and does not have a care in this world or at least that’s the persona he projects to his adoring fans. Outside of the public and when no one is looking he’s dealing with demons from his past and takes solace in the quiet life with his aging Lab, Winston. I can honestly say I can appreciate a man that takes care of his dog and make him his best friend. Something about it screams sexy nurturer. Attraction aside Summer and Malcolm come from two different worlds, both seeking something they’ve been missing. Will this rendezvous be more than an escape from reality or become something more? Thank you Catherine Goldstein for allowing me to enjoy more of your work. Can’t wait to enjoy more. **I was gifted an arc copy for participating in a blog tour / in exchange for my honest opinion **

Summer of Irreverence, The Rock Star,  Cathrine Goldstein Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance,    I’m a sucker for the rock star romance trope so requested this. It was a light and fun read but.... I missed the intensity I expect in this trope, the jealousy, the groupies, the drugsnsexnrocknroll media sh it storm that almost always finds its way into this trope, and that make it such a great read for me. I’ve just finished rereading the wonderful Paige Toon duology Johnny be good/baby be mine and that's exactly what I look for in this kind of story. Passion, drama, heartbreak – all that stuff. Here though everyone was just so nice,so kind and helpful.Throw in that the plot just didn’t really cut it for me,  Summer pretending to be a model to attract Malcolm just felt too forced, Malcolm as a top of the tree rock star just donned a hat and glasses to go out unhindered, him spotting Summer in a crowd of thousands that first night, even if she was with someone he knew and in the front row, it all was just too easy,too smooth, too simplistic. Then also I didn’t see why she kept her career a secret, why she was so afraid to tell him. The stuff Malcolm is hiding behind – well, that was a tough one, and I understood well why he had been quiet about it for so long, but it still was a bit small to be a major drama, though it could have been if more emphasis had been put on it. Winston – he is a star and I loved him ;-) . They’re just two such sweet, kind, thoughtful people that it all felt a little sickly for me. Its a good read, well written but I did need more friction and angst to rate it higher. Thats just a personal thing though – we all want different types of stories, and this kind of read resonates and is perfect for many readers. I can’t close without saying that Name is Awful. I hate twee names and Summer Wynters is horrible – it does provide a bit of extra text when they refer to it and her parents  but I really don’t think it was worth the nausea inducing feelings I got each time I read it ;-) I read another recently where the main lead was Autumn Rayne – no- as with Wynters, putting the Y in doesn’t make it OK. I’ve never read the much heralded Black dagger brotherhood saga, though I love vampire romances, as I just can’t get past the cringe worthy names, Rhage, Zsadist, Vishous. Each time I think I’ll give them a try I think of those names and just can’t bring myself to read them! Stars: Three, a bit too sweet for me but perfect for others.

This book was so very cute. It was just what I needed to get out of my book slump caused by Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Mist and Fury. Which, if you haven’t read, go read it. But back to Summer of Irreverence: The Rock Star which I will call SOI because that title is so dang long. Like I said, this book was very cute. The story was a fast paced romance that left me feeling so very happy for the characters in the end. It is set in summer time so right now is the perfect time to go and read it. Set out on the beach and dig in to this book. My main complaint about SOI is that the author seemed to force the characters into having emotional trouble and baggage that just didn’t seem to work. The emotional issues were thrown in my face instead of blending it into the story line. Other than that, I really did enjoy the story that I read, I just wished that the emotions were more interwoven. Summer was an adorable introvert that didn’t seem so introverted once she stepped into her role as a vet (you’ll figure out what I mean when you meet a certain cow). But, she started her whole story on a charade that I knew was going to blow up in her face from the beginning, it always ends up that way one character lies to another from the beginning. Other than her idiotic charade, she was adorable. She was finally starting her career as a vet, a goal she had been working towards since the second grade, and wanted a summer of fun. Fun in which she stepped out of her boundaries and seduced someone so unlike her usual type. But, you’ll have to read the book to find out how well she succeeds in that endeavor! Malcolm is a famous rock star who puts out this image that doesn’t actually match who he is. For one, he has this old golden lab who he hides from the public eye so that no one can (aka crazy fans) can take him away. I really enjoyed Malcolm’s character and I love his name. I don’t know why, but I really like the name Malcolm. There really isn’t much to say about Malcolm’s character. About a third of the book is told from his point of view but really I wanted it all from his side. Though, he could use some more emotions, it wouldn’t hurt him! Guys, this book is a perfect summer read. Go curl up by the pool, beach, or on your hammock (unless you’re like me who stays inside) and just read, read, read! It is a cute little summer romance that will leave you feeling happy at the end.
