(RockStars of Romance Book 1)

Cash Myers is a "sensitive singer/songwriter" that has captured the hearts of fangirls around the world with his music. Savannah is a gossip blogger and self-proclaimed SUPERFAN. After one encounter, 8 years ago before Cash became internationally known, Savannah has been his #1 fan. When their paths cross again, their attraction to each other is undeniable and a FANGIRL'S dream weekend in New York City brings Savannah and Cash even closer. No one believes that their feelings for each other are real, especially Cash's management. At 27 years old, Savannah's parents expect her to "step away from the computer and GET A REAL JOB" while her twin sister is over the moon that Savannah will forever be the one who disappointed her civil rights activist parents by bringing a white boy home to meet the family. Everyone they know is doing everything they can to keep Savannah and Cash apart. How can they even consider being together when social stigmas and self-created drama keep forcing them apart?
I liked the storyline of this book. Worldwide famous but humble rock star meets his biggest fan who could also be his biggest enemy. Takes a couple of missed opportunities for Cash and Savannah to properly meet face to face and are hugely attracted to each other. One is born into a rich,black African heritage with affluence and long held mistrust white people and the other who is self made multimillionaire with no racial prejudice. Cash and Savannah have many battles to face in order to have a relationship but with many hurdles in their path can they end up together through compromise and love, or will the opinion of others around them and around the world, the rumours, the scrutiny and the non believers keep them apart.
I liked that the storyline raised the issues and prejudices that interracial relationships face. I enjoyed that both sides of the issue are shown. There are strong, likeable folks in these pages. Some you will cheer on, some you want to beat on and some you wouldn't mind spending time with. I look forward to the next in the series. Reviewed on behalf of WTMO Reviews.
He caught the eye of a tall busty brunette in tight shorts, a shimmering top, and stripper heels. She was gorgeous, like swimsuit model gorgeous and definitely throwing sex me vibes his way. That was the problem with making appearances without Victoria on his arm. Girls were bold when she wasn’t around to lay claim to her man.
Cash stood up and walked over to the girl. She adjusted her shirt to show off a little more of her best feature, a nice pair of surgically enhanced…hmmm, 36Ds, Cash guessed. His eyes roamed over her statuesque body. Cash slid behind her and lightly gripped her hips.
“You’re kinda cute,” Cash said in her ear. “What’s your name?”
“Shana. And you’re Cash Myers.”
“The one and only.”
“Too bad for that,” Shana smiled. “The world could use more Cash.”
“I don’t think so, my dear. The world can’t handle more than one of me.”
Their flirty banter continued as Cash led Shana to the middle of the dance floor. Two beers and two shots of Patron had lowered his inhibitions but they hadn’t made him stupid. Shana was good for a few ass-to-groin dances and he’d probably leave with her number, however, that’s as far as it would go. Until Victoria said otherwise, he was unavailable. She wasn’t getting the chance to turn this situation around on him and make him the bad guy.
After two dances, Tracy tapped Cash on his shoulder. Much to Shana’s disappointment, he removed his hands from her hips and turned to face his publicist.
“What?” he shouted.
Tracy pointed to a small group, two guys and a girl, standing by the bar sipping on Club Reign’s signature drink, the Mongolian Motherfucker. Vodka, rum, gin, sloe gin, 151, Southern Comfort, triple sec, orange juice, cranberry juice, and grenadine…he’d had a quite a few in his day, but never the night before a show.
“That’s Savannah Ford and her friends,” Tracy explained. “She wants to do a feature on you for her website. Go over, say hi, and answer a few questions then we can get out of here.”
Cash had no idea who Savannah Ford was, but he stared across the club at the brown-skinned, curly haired girl trying her hardest not to make it so incredibly obvious that she was staring at him too. She was gorgeous, in a sexy bohemian girl next-door kind of way. Her eyes sparkled with a twinkle that one Mongolian Motherfucker usually caused. She didn’t have the aggressive and cold look of someone angling for a story. In fact, she appeared to be having a great time with her two friends and he being there wasn’t going to change that.
The flashing strobe lights made her belly ring sparkle. Cash could make out that she had a rather large tattoo on her side. Her halter top only partially revealed the pattern. He couldn’t make out what it was. It didn’t matter. Girls with tattoos were hot as hell!
“What’s the name of her blog?” Cash asked Tracy, assuming the girl was just another gossip blogger.
“It’s called FanGirl Squeal. It’s cute,” Tracy replied.
Cash rolled his eyes. “Are you serious? What is she…twelve? How’d she get in here?”
“She’s a year younger than me,” Tracy scolded. “I know how you feel about bloggers, but I’ve checked out her site. She’s never written anything negative about you, Cash. I didn’t even see one paparazzi picture of you so she’s not paying anyone for her content. She’s one of the good ones.”
Although Cash trusted the opinion of his publicist, he disliked gossip bloggers. No matter what they said, entertainment blogs or whatever they chose to call themselves, at the end of the day, they were all always in his business and invading his personal life. He didn’t like it. For once, he’d just like to do an interview and talk about his latest album, not where he and Victoria were getting married or when they were going to have kids.
