Blow by Heidi McLaughlin is the start of a new rocker romance series that will blow readers away. I was drawn to the forbidden romance (who doesn't like the forbidden fantasy?) but I wasn’t invested with the lust at first sight trope. The beginning started strong introducing readers to Bodhi, but there was a lack of depth to the story that kept me from connecting with the characters as it went along. Blow was a good read - there are other books by this author I liked much better though.
Meet the complicated men behind the sexiest boy band in America! In Blow, the start of an
emotionally charged series from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, an insatiable heartthrob gets blinded by the spotlight—and learns to fight for love.
Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he's asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.
When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn't expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he's enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn't fazed by his stardom. She'd rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he's fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he's strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.
