Irishman Brogan Byrne is at the pinnacle of rock music success in 1974. Handsome, charismatic, with a three-octave voice, you’d think he had it all. But Byrne sinks to new depths of depravity with women, liquor, and drugs.

Carly Montgomery is an ambitious record executive offered an opportunity to be manager for the last leg of Byrne’s tour. Though she’s detached and tough as nails, Carly’s cool facade comes under attack. Somehow Byrne manages to slip by her frosty defenses.

Brogan, for his part, is broken inside. A memory weighs on his soul and affects his actions. Is Carly the one woman to help him forget his guilt and heal his heart of rock?

 

Review: Heart of Rock by Karyn Gerrard is not part of a series but I would like to read more about the members of the band.  I chose this book because the blurb interested me.  I wanted to see how Carly and Brogan fall for each other.

Brogan Byrne is a hot and sexy man who has the perfect voice.  While he should have it all he is busy destroying his success with women, liquor, and drugs.   When he is sober he comes across as a nice man with good values.  He uses drugs, women, and liquor to chase his demons away.

Carly Montgomery is a record executive that was offered the opportunity to be the manager for the last leg of Brogan’s tour.  I do wonder if it was really an opportunity or if they thought it was going to end badly either way so why not give her a shot?  Carly comes across as honest but hard working.  She has her priorities in order.

The chemistry between Carly and Brogan is scorching.  It was interesting to see Brogan who has woman falling has his feet meet a woman who was going to keep in line whether he agreed to it or not.  The sex scenes were great.  I loved that they did not fall in love at first sight and fall into bed.

This story needs more romance between Carly and Brogan.  It’s easy to see that they care for each other but it moves fast from caring to in love.  Overall this was a nice sweet story.  I have not read anything by Ms. Gerrard before and I will be reading more in the future.
