Book Description: A small town girl.
A rock star living a lie.
Their paths cross and lead them down a road neither of them expected to find: love at the Apple Blossom Inn.
Janey knows that life doesn’t come with a happy-ending guarantee. She needs to keep her feet securely on the ground working two jobs, going to school, and caring for her little brother. She has no time or room for romance.
After an accident leaves his charmed life in ruins, Derrick abandons his Hollywood lifestyle and checks into rehab. The world believes that Derrick Cordell the rock star is dead. And despite his beating heart and breathing lungs, that’s exactly how he feels until, disguised and living incognito in the tiny town of Rose Arbor, Washington, he meets Janey, who loves him as plain old Eric Roudell, the wanna-be music teacher.
But secrets have a way of unraveling. When Janey discovers the truth about Eric/Derrick, how can she love someone she doesn’t even know? Especially since love is not on her to-do list?
My thoughts: This was a cute and quick contemporary Romance Novella.
Janey comes from a small town in Washington State. She works two jobs and goes to school. She is the constant in her younger brother's life and does a lot to make sure he is fed and taken care of. She remembers what it was like to grow up with their alcoholic mother and wants to help her brother have a stable childhood.
Eric is known throughout the world as Derrik, the rock star. After hitting rock bottom with substance abuse, he runs from his famous life and lands in Washington State. He is staying at Apple Blossom Inn, the same place where Janey works. Her spunky personality and the fact that she doesn't know who he is attracts him.
The two are very cute together and Eric has a great personality. He is a genuine person who is really good for Janey. They have a rocky start and some rocky moments as she learns of his fame. This is a pairing that you hope will work out and find there happily ever after.
The book has kissing, innuendo, and deals with alcoholism.
