I'll be honest I don't really like books about rock stars or Reality TV, so when this book was sent I was a little worried. I really like Cate Masters work, however, so I gave it a try and wound up loving it.
Jet Trently is a down and out rocker who has been relegated to doing one of those bachelor shows. If that weren't bad enough this was the second season for the show.
Billie is a journalist for a music magazine and has been sent to California to write up the show and keep up a blog about the show. She couldn't be less happy about it. Finding no way around getting out of going Billie backs her bags and heads to California.
When she gets there she goes crazy having to follow show and a has been star, who she knows can do a lot better if he just would take on some new music. Soon her blog posts are getting all kinds of attention from readers and fans. She can't convince her boyfriend/editor to let her come home and everyday she falls more and more for the star of the show.
Jet is a charmer, no doubt about that. He does his best to keep everyone happy even though he doesn't really want anything to do with the Reality TV show. All he wants to do is play his music. When Billie comes along she frustrates him and excites him at the same time and he discovers she just what he needs to kick him in the pants and get him motivated again. Now if he can just spend some time with her without the constant interruptions and screaming women.
This is a wonderful read full of insightful dialog and a great hero and heroine. Sure some would say that some of the characters are cliche, but that's just what makes them so much fun. Definitely an enjoyable read you won't want to put down.
Can success trap you at Rock Bottom?

When her editor sends her to Malibu to cover Jet's reality dating show, Rock Bottom, her blog's success keeps her trapped there. Her life's at Rock Bottom too, until she hears Jet's new songs. They touch her heart as his music did when she was fifteen. When Jet touches her heart as well, will the reality show ruin the real thing?
