When Hailey Harper left her family farm to enroll in veterinary school, she had a plan: keep her head down, ace her classes, and most importantly… don’t upset the uncle paying her tuition. Translation? Don’t piss off his dramatic, self-absorbed daughter, Danica, even if she’s a nightmare to live with.
Falling in love with her cousin’s rock star ex-boyfriend was definitely not part of the plan.
As the drummer of a now-famous rock band, Mike Madden could have any girl he wants. He’s sweet, funny, romantic, talented–and the only guy that’s ever made Hailey’s heart do cartwheels in her chest. The more she gets to know him, the harder she falls, but Hailey knows they can never be more than friends… because Danica wants him back, and she’ll fight dirty to win.
Mike is falling for Hailey too, but Danica’s threats and his rock star life-music video shoots, international tours, obsessed fans-could tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Hailey isn’t sure she’s the one for him, but Mike’s waited years for a girl like her… and he’ll do anything to prove it.
I fell a little bit more for Mike in each of the books in this series, but this book was just wow. I am so happy that we got Mike’s story and I loved the way it played out.
Mike is the most adorable character. He is laid back, makes everyone feel comfortable and at home and loves video games. He is just an incredible guy and I am happy that he finally found the incredible girl to complement him.
There is quite a bit of drama in this one, because the incredible girl he falls for happens to be his crazy ex’s cousin, but Hailey was so smart, sweet, kind, and amazing that all of the drama and angst didn’t feel over done. Now Danica (the ex) I pretty much wanted to throw my Kindle every time she appeared. You know those characters you would love to reach in and slap around because they are so selfish, vapid and horrible, yeah that is Danica.
Hailey and Mike hit it off playing video games when she kicks his ass on a new video game on the guy’s tour bus. He keeps playing and chatting online with her even though he is dating her cousin, and Hailey starts to fall for him so she starts avoiding playing with him. This story is really fun to read, and even though it may sound like a cheating book I can assure you that it is not. MIke is too good of a guy for anything like that.
I highly recommend picking this one up. MIke Madden is the kind of all around nice guy that you want to date in real life. I loved his and Hailey’s story so much I can’t wait to read all of the books again to spend a little more time with the band.
