"Parental Discretion is Advised. Sydney Willows, a professional photographer boasts a long list of world famous musicians as clients. She's blond, ambitious, and about to shoot the most lucrative job of her career when she meets Ben Gallo, lead singer and guitarist for his band, Reckless. Tall, handsome, and with enough rock swagger to melt any woman's heart, Ben plays to win. Will he be the one to show her that the path to 'happily-ever-after' is possible with a music man, or will a juvenile bet made between brothers prove stronger than a bond of love? For All The Right Reasons is ribboned with deception, lust and love and will leave you aching for an encore."
If you’re familiar with my reviews then you know that I’ve read quite a few famous rock stars novels, some were fan-freaking-tastic and others were simply okay. Well, I am happy to report that I have just added another novel to my rock star list: For All the Right Reasons by Ann Lister, and it was pretty darn good. There were some clichéd moments, but for the most part this was an original novel. Ann Lister wrote a romantic, entertaining, and emotional story, and I look forward to reading more novels by her in the future.
For All the Right Reasons is Jenna and Ben’s love story, and their story is a blend of sweet, sad, and sexy. Jenna, a famous photographer, was hired to go on tour with the band Reckless and take photographs of the band performing and hanging out behind the scenes. This isn’t Jenna’s first gig. She has been doing this for years, and she never lets herself get emotionally attached to any of her clients. She hasn’t let anyone in in a long time, until Ben. Ben is the lead singer and guitarist for the band Reckless. He’s a sexy rock star and a fabulous hero. Jenna and Ben’s relationship develops gradually. They become friends and then lovers. While reading this novel, I cheered them on and cursed at their stupidity (Ahem…Jenna!). You won’t be able to stop yourself from falling in love with them.
Except for the gigantic skip in time at the end of this novel, the plot was perfect and the conclusion was even better.
I gave For All the Right Reasons by Ann Lister 4 STARS (3.5 STARS). I recommend this novel to adults who enjoy rock stars and romance.
