So, a while back, I put together a rock star romance list and got RIPPED A NEW ONE for one of my recommendations. (I stand by that recommendation, by the way--but if you're curious, check out the comments here.) Long-story-short, this reader was irritated that one of the books featured a rock star with addiction issues and a checkered sexual history (ahem)--and he wasn't very nice to his newest female employee. While I didn't agree with what this individual had to say (she wasn't very kind and didn't use her inside voice, that's for SURE), it did make me realize that manwhores and alpha jerkwads DO seem to show up a lot in rock star romances. BUT, as with anything else in life, there are exceptions, of course. So, with that in mind, here are my favorite rock star romances that do NOT feature a manwhore or alpha jerkwad lead. You're welcome:
About the rock star: Sure, he used to have some addiction issues. But, he got clean--and not ONCE in the book is there any mention of his past sexual exploits with groupies. AND...he rescues dogs. *dreamy sigh*. Note: The book is also in Kindle Unlimited...for now, at least.
About the rock star: Here's a rock star who has stayed 100% faithful to his fellow rock star wife throughout their entire career--since they were in high school. He was even faithful when she was in an 8-year coma. He remained faithful when she woke up from the coma and didn't remember who he was. He's a saint among rock star romance heroes, and I loved everything about him. Note: The book is also in Kindle Unlimited...for now, at least.
About the rock star: He sings Disney songs for little kids, y'all. Disney songs. *cue exploding ovaries* Warning for the sensitive readers in the audience: this book does involve cheating. (The hero does not cheat on the heroine, but the heroine does have a boyfriend when she falls for the hero.)
About the rock star: He's been through some hard times, and he's a grump...but he has a heart of gold. He's a cinnamon-roll in grumpy bastard's clothing, and I dig that about him. Note: The book is also in Kindle Unlimited...for now, at least.
About the rock star: He's a sweet, sexy rocker who is NOT a giant commitment-phobe. He's practically a unicorn in the world of rock star romance!
About the rock star: He did some stupid things when he was a young rock star and wrecked his relationship with the heroine, but now that he's more mature, he grovels like a champ to win her back. And he helps/bonds with kids in a group home. Does it get any swoonier than that? I think not.
About the rock star: He's gentle, patient, and eagerly starts learning ASL almost IMMEDIATELY after meeting the heroine so that he can talk to her. Not so that he can get into her pants, mind you--he wants to talk to her. It's beautiful.
About the rock star: Sweet, sugary, cinnamon roll hero yummy goodness.
