Review: Blow by Heidi McLaughlin

by Heidi McLaughlin

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.

My review: 4 Damaged Musician Stars
One thing I love about fiction is that you can forget about reality and just enjoy the story. And that's exactly what I did with Heidi McLaughlin's Blow. How likely is it for a normal everyday girl to meet and fall in insta-love with a rock star while he is detoxing at her father's rehab center? Not very. But who cares? Especially when McLaughlin created two fabulous characters, both flawed in their own ways, who are really pretty great together. If I stay up way past my bedtime because I just don't want to put the book down, that's a sign of a darn good book. Looking forward to reading about other members of Virtuous Paradox!
