The smart and
rational side of my brain seems to be on a break because all I’m capable of
doing is raking my eyes over Mr. Basketball Shorts. He’s tall with broad
shoulders and the most pronounced abs I’ve ever seen up close. The baseball cap
on his head is turned backward, and he’s currently wiping his face off with
what I assume to be his shirt. That is the only reason he hasn’t seen me yet,
and why I haven’t seen his face yet either. But I’m going out on a limb here
and say it’s probably as gorgeous as the rest of him.

My eyes drift
back to his drool-worthy chest, following the beads of sweat that are slowly
running down his torso to the V-shaped lower abs until they disappear into the
pair of shorts that sits low on his hips.

Sudden heat
shoots through my body, making my cheeks tingle from the force of it. My brain
uses that moment of distraction to finally kick back in again, reminding me of
the situation at hand.

A total stranger
is standing in my kitchen.


And we’re all
alone in this house.

Johnaka's Review:

“Baking and music, 5 stars”

Charlie is starting over. Her like is hectic but she will do anything to make a better life for herself and her daughter. What she wasn’t expecting was Hudson. Will she be able to let him in or will she be hesitant? One thing is for sure nothing can stop her from succeeding. 

Hudson has come home to recharge his batteries. What he wasn’t expecting was to find his Grandma, Charlie, or Charlie’s daughter staying at his place. Charlie is a breath of fresh air. Will he be able to convince her to give him a chance?

Oh, how I adored Charlie and Hudson. The chemistry between the two was top notch. I loved how Hudson just accepted Charlie and her daughter. Baking with the Rockstar wasn’t your typical Rockstar romance and I loved it. The story was just super cute and made me smile. I hope it does the same to you.

Erin's Review:

The first in a new series, Baking with a Rockstar is a great read! Opposites attract in this fun read. My first time reading anything by this author, but I enjoyed the book. It was a solid read that had good romance, some mystery, and fantastic characters.

Opposites attract when single mom Charlie finds out her roommate is rockstar Hudson! I liked that the plot was more than just hot rockstar woos single mom...they had regular mom issues mixed in with the rockstar celebrity, and went about life so the story was quite relatable. 

I connected so much with Charlie when she said, “Some people take a relaxing bath or work out when they're frustrated or need to let off some steam. I bake.” She's a feisty single mom trying to start over in a new place and provide for her family. We don't get to know her full history until nearly the end of the book. She wanted to find someone for herself, but was first a mom and needed to provide for her daughter. And then the way she met Hudson was a fantastic meet-cute! I love how Hudson can come home and be the local boy and not be hounded by paparazzi. He's a good guy who has a job in the spotlight and needs some downtime. Along the way he just happens to meet someone he'd like to spend time with and connects with. 

Charlie and Hudson had good chemistry. Hudson had the rockstar handsome thing going for him, and digs Charlie's beauty and brains and mothering (and her adorable daughter!). Charlie can't resist the good man that Hudson is and enjoys co-habitating and co-parenting with him. So they naturally start to spiral to each other, and their chemistry works well. Their relationship is natural and down to earth, but they have some earth shattering moments to heat the story.

Overall, the book was well paced, though maybe a little slower than I'd like. I wasn't totally sucked in, and it did take me longer to read than I wished. Despite that, I did enjoy the characters and their families and setting. There was good set up for future books with Hudson's family and Charlie's friend. The writing style was easy to read and with a well rounded vocabulary. 

I liked this book! Charlie's back story lent the book a bit of mystery, and it touched on many social aspects (fame, mental health, parenthood, privacy). I would recommend this book, and am invested enough to want to read Hudson's family stories, and that of Charlie's friend.

Favorite Quotes:

“Somebody, please have mercy, because I'm not sure my ovaries can take this any longer.”

“He's just a normal guy after all-a normal guy who poops.”

“This man is a walking ray of sunshine, and I can't remember the last time I've smiled this much.”

“No one should be this sexy and utterly charming, not to mention adorable, all at the same time.”
