I love rock star romances - but I don't think there was enough rock star in this one for me. Still a very enjoyable romance, but it was far more cowboy than I had originally expected. This is more of a prodigal son returning home type of story. We don't get any of the glamour and glitz that I've come to love from rock star stories.

Everyone loves a rock star.
What country legend Brent Kane needs is a good old fashioned hook-up. With pressure to write his next album mounting and the sales from his latest album teetering, Brent needs to find his muse –hot sex with no commitment—fast. So when Brent holes up at his best friend’s ranch in Somewhere Texas to write his next single the last thing he expected was to find his muse in the form of his best friend’s little sister.
DJ Diaz, the nonsense part owner of the Double D Ranch, is not at all affected by Brent’s good looks and play boy charm. She’s fallen once before and learned firsthand the heartache of loving a rock star. But spending time with the man who let her down ten years ago shows her that something’s missing from her life—fun.
But will DJ be able to keep her heart from becoming involved in this “just for fun” relationship? And more importantly, will Brent?
What we do get is a really sweet story of high school love coming full circle to hit both parties upside the head, telling them to get on with it already and fall in love again. Brent is trying to find his lost muse and get back to his roots. Staying with his best friend from high school and his little sister are just what he thinks he needs - until he realizes just how much DJ still means to him.
DJ thinks Brent is just a spoiled super star that doesn't know the value of hard word. I loved watching her lay into him when he did something wrong. She's a very strong female character that really knows how to make her cowboys jump. She's perfect from Brent, but just needs to put some past demons to rest before she can realize it.
What I liked best about this was that there wasn't really a "bad guy" in the story anywhere, and that neither character had some horrible character flaw to get over. It was just a matter of Brent and DJ realizing they were at the right place at the right time to finally make it work. (I still wanted some more rock star though.)
