Megan Miller is on a dream trip to research her doctoral thesis at a rock festival in England. When she arrives in town she’s stunned that her temporary neighbor is the spitting image of her 70’s rock idol, too bad he’s also a world-class jerk. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?
Seventies rock star Davy Morgan is a man with a secret: rockin’ in one time and living in another. He holds his privacy close to his heart, so when a beautiful girl who not only loves but truly understands his music moves in next door, he works overtime to keep her at a distance. Easier said than done.
Megan follows Davy to the rock festival, but it’s not what or when it seems. The lure of the music draws them closer, but can their newfound love span across the decades, or will it get lost in time?
The premise of this one sounded interesting when I read the blurb. Even as I started reading, it was like Outlander but with a rock star flair. But as the story went on, it seemed to loose it’s steam and left me wanting so much more for Megan and Davy’s romance.
Megan has always had a love of 70’s music, even taking is so far as to write her doctoral thesis on music festivals and how the culture has changed from the 70’s. When she meets her neighbor during her stay in England, she’s shocked to discover the arrogant man claims to be her crush, Davy Morgan’s nephew. As their paths cross, David and Megan fight their attraction as David tries hiding his secret.
I liked Megan and Davy, even if we spent more time in their heads than them actually having a conversation with each other. Of course, that might have worked out for the best in Davy’s case, since the things that came out of this mouth tended to make him come off like the biggest ass, rather than the rock star who was tired of all the press intrusions.
Even though I liked Megan, I didn’t like how she refused to deal with her issue at school. I knew how important the festival was to Megan, but it felt like she was a bit of a teenager just throwing caution to the wind and worrying about what happens back at home when she gets there.
I didn’t really like how the story ended. Sure Megan and Davy got their HEA, but it seemed rushed and their relationship didn’t really get a chance to really build. It was cool her wrote her the song and she finally figured out it’s meaning, but I would have like to seen them build on what they had just started to discover those 3 days or so they were together.
