Review: One Kiss with a Rock Star (Half-Life #2) by Amber Lin & Shari Slade

Half-Life bassist Krist Mellas is caught in a PR nightmare after his dirty sex video blew up online. His agent has the solution: a fake engagement with sultry pop princess Madeline Fox. Krist can’t think of anything worse than a charade with the bubblegum bombshell…except losing the band.

Madeline knows better than anyone what it means to live a lie in the spotlight. She’s determined to help Krist without ever letting him find out what it costs her—or about her girlhood crush on him. But after a smoking hot back alley encounter with him leaves her breathless, she can’t deny she wants the snarling bad-boy rocker.

In a world of glitter and diamonds where the kisses are fake but the climaxes are real, their facades start to crack. And the publicity storm may shatter them both.

WARNING: This book contains a scorching threesome, a dirty talking pop princess, and a surly rocker who hits all the right notes.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

The next book in Amber Lin and Shari Slade's Half-Life novels, One Kiss with a Rock Star is a slam dunk.  This book has it all, lust, hot sex, and love.  The characters are very well developed and will seduce all of your senses while taking you on a tantalizing ride from the beginning till the very end. 

Half-Life bassist Krist Mellas is a real mess and he is totally misunderstood.  After the debacle with the sex tape in the elevator with bandmate Lock and his now wife Hailey, Krist cannot get rid of the ridicule and bad press from the tape.  Not knowing what his next move should be, he takes a gig with the infamous Madeline Fox and his whole world begins to tilt on a scorchingly different axis. 

Madeline Fox is a mega pop star who has it bad for Krist Mellas of Half-Life.  She would do anything to help him, while in the process help herself.  Comfortable in her own skin or so everyone believes, Madeline wants Krist in every way possible and any way she can get him.

Will Krist fall for the bubblegum and pink pony princess?  Will Madeline let Krist go because for her own self-preservations?   Can a match be made from unlikely circumstances?  Read this book to find out.  Your interests will be piqued and fantasies will be sated! 

As with everything these ladies do, this book rocks.  After reading the first book of Half-Life, I was a bit skeptical about how the story for Krist would play out.  However, I must say I am more than pleased.  This book gave new meaning to the bad boy image that is Krist Mellas, adding a softer side that I wanted to know.  I feel that in writing these type books, Amber and Shari share an insight to rock-n-roll that we all enjoy immensely!  Once again, way to rock it ladies!!! 

Hero -  4.5 stars
Heroine - 4.5 stars
Steam Level: 4.5 stars
Plot: 4.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  This is a great book.  The type of read that will strip you bare and then build you back up again to make you feel so good!

Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  I love everything these ladies write.  I enjoy their style of penmanship and hardcore honesty.
