New Release Review: Encore (Rock Star Duet Book 2) by Rachel Lacey

by Rachel Lacey
Release Date: June 12, 2018


Rocker Colton Nix would do just about anything to rid himself of the unflattering nickname his womanizing ways have earned him in the tabloids—anything except settle down with a woman, of course. If his parents taught him anything, it’s that love is as fleeting as celebrity. But after a few too many drinks on a private island in the Caribbean, Cole wakes up with the king of all hangovers…and a wedding band on his left ring finger.

Celebrity assistant Jenn MacDonald has her future meticulously planned, and she’s ready to make her next move: becoming a songwriter. Drunk-marrying a rock star was definitely not on the list. When Cole suggests they stay married for six months so that he can ride out the good publicity while helping her launch her new career, she can’t help but say yes. She’s even able to convince herself—almost—that her decision has nothing to do with the way one glance from Cole sets her body humming like the strings on his favorite guitar.

They were near strangers when they exchanged drunken vows on the beach, but the connection—and the attraction—between them is powerful and real. Soon, they’re making beautiful music together, both in and out of bed. They’re giving the performance of their lives, until it all comes crashing down around them. But every great performance deserves an encore, and theirs might just be love.

My review: 5 stars!
Although I really enjoyed the first book in the duet, Unwritten, I LOVED Encore! Celebrity assistant Jenn and rock star Cole are somewhat of an unlikely pair. Jenn has always sworn that she won't date anyone in the industry she work in and Cole isn't interested in serious relationships, period. The marriage of convenience trope is not one I usually seek out, but Encore was such a magical story- full of flaming hot chemistry and believable dialog. It was fun to watch them fight their obvious attraction to each other. I'm sad to see this duet end- it was truly a fantastic read!
