What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you never knew you needed?

Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Shaw sit up and take notice for long, though. But that all changes when a famous rock star walks through his door.

Trent Knox had the world in the palm of his hand as the lead singer of TBD, one of the biggest rock bands in history…until the day he walked away. A getaway to South Haven Island seems like the perfect place for Trent to find himself again and reignite his passion for music. But what he never expects is to find his muse in a six-five, tatted-up badass whose sinful smile he can’t get out of his mind.

The only problem? Trent’s a notorious womanizer, and Shaw isn’t interested in being someone’s experiment—muse or otherwise. But in a town as small as this one, Shaw is finding it more and more difficult to keep the persistent rocker at arm’s length.

As the tension between them builds, maybe it’s time to finally give in and get carried away with something a little bit like…desire.

The novels in the South Haven Series are m/m romance standalones that focus on different couples. While each can be read out of order, reading A Little Bit Like Love (Book 1) first is recommended for maximum reading pleasure.

Some things were too cliche (i.e., the band members nicknames, their style of dress) and I have to admit it bothered me enough to point out. Also, there was more telling than showing. The relationship development felt off. Overall, I enjoyed it though, just wasn’t a slamdunk.

-Rockstar and tattoo artist
-Romantic
-Low angst
-Good chemistry
-Alternating POVs
-Feel good vibe.

I’m a romance junkie, who loves when books make her cry from heartbreak and happiness.

A few of my favorite tropes:

-Friends to lovers
-Hurt/comfort/healing
-Age gap
