Summary from Goodreads
His heart beats for the music. She’s his favorite song.
Lyric Cassidy knows a thing or two about bad boy rock stars with raspy vocals. In fact, her heart was just played by one. So when she takes an assignment as road manager for the world famous rock star, Wolf, she’s prepared to take him on, full suit of heart-armor intact.
Wolf is the sexy lead singer for the hottest rock band around with a line-up of guaranteed one night stands. Lyric Cassidy isn’t one of them. That’s fine with him. Women like Lyric come with fairytale expectations, so it should be easy to stay away. Too bad she’s hot as sin with a fiery temper and a mouth that drives him wild.
She’s also got something to hide. Something he discovers. Something he wants …
Sharing a tour bus, neither of them are prepared for the miles of road ahead and the fierce attraction they feel toward one another—a dangerous combination.
The story is about Lyric Cassidy (yes, as a song), who just came out of a relationship with a dangerous rock-star (Tony something) and Wolf Chapman, who is the exact person Lyric should be avoiding. Wolf is a hard going rock star, has a new girl every night and who just got Lyric as his new road manager.
This is the perfect cocktail for a messy tour bus. Both trying to protect their own hearts.
Are all the bumps in the road going to stop these two destined hearts to come together?
I loved that this book was written in alternating chapters. This way we’ll be able to read from Wolf and from Lyric.
The story is predictable, I’m not going to lie to you, it really is. But there are so many books these days and I think it’s pretty difficult to make a book completely predictable free.
While reading, I did think it was fun that the writer was letting Lyric say/think that she is ‘such a cliché’ and ‘that’s the stuff of romance novels.’ Yes Lyric, you’re completely correct.
This doesn’t make it a bad book though. The story itself was well written, interesting and an easy read. And about this book being more sexual than any of K.K. Allen her other books… I can’t fully judge on this but it is more sexually tinted than her other book Up in the Treehouse.
I do believe that I don’t really know what the characters look like. The scenes seemed clear to me but it took a while to learn something about their looks, other than that they are all gorgeous.
And can I just point out that Wolf is apparently short for Beowolf (I’ve never heard that name before) and that another guy in the band is called Hedge… I can’t be the only one who thinks that’s funny?
The cover of the book must give you an idea of what Wolf looks like, uncomfortable… I’m sort of kidding, he does look like he is in somewhat an uncomfortable position.
But there is also a music sheet and the faded lines of the song which is one of the reasons their trouble began.
This book definitely ends on a cliff. And even after giving Dangerous Hearts a three-star rating, I still want to know how this story is going to end. We’ll have to wait for the next book to come out.
In my opinion, Dangerous Hearts is a book you can finish in one sitting. It’s easy to follow what is going on although you are introduced to a lot of people at the beginning but you’ll do just fine.
See what I did there at the beginning?? I ‘casually’ mentioned the SECOND book in this duology namely Destined Hearts. This book will be out in July 2017!
(I also love the pun that is made in the quote…)
