My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Id0l by Kristen Callihan was a page turner. I’ve read several Rock Star romances and they were pretty typical. That is not a complaint, just how it was, and I didn’t dislike the books because of that. While reading Idol, I kept waiting for that angst “ball” to drop. But guess what? It never did! Killian James…sigh…was physically what you expected him to be, tall, dark, handsome and sexy as hell. I loved him, and not because of his looks. He was charming and funny and just so sweet towards our heroine. Our heroine, Libby, was not a weak, flighty, down-on-her-luck character. Was she sad and lonely? Yes. But she was not a pushover. I absolutely loved the back and forth witty banter between these two. From the blurb we know, they met under intoxicating (no pun intended) circumstances on Libby’s front lawn. From there their relationship grew to friendship and respect while at the same time their fondness for each other grew to love. I have to say the “I love you,” was not at first sight or rushed. Actually the build was beautifully done by the author and continued to grow throughout the book. Killian and Libby needed to find each other in order to see themselves better. They brought out the best in each other and came to realize that to enjoy the life they craved, they needed their lives entangled. So while this story does have “life” thrown into it, there was no overwritten drama to frustrate me. That being said, I wholly loved this book and can’t wait for the next in the series!
