Book Review: I Want You to Want Me by Erika Kelly

I Want You to Want Me (Rock Star Romance #2)

Release Date: July 7, 2015

Derek Valencia finally has the success he’s worked so hard for. His band is touring its debut album and great reviews are rolling in. But when pictures of him tossing naked groupies off a balcony go viral, it’s damage-control time. He’s assigned a “babysitter” whose sole job is to keep him out of trouble.

Violet Davis swore she’d never work in the music industry again, but being a minder for a rock star will earn her enough to pay off the mortgage on her wildflower farm. And for a girl brought up in the foster care system, owning her own home means more to her than anything.

Though at first the two bang heads, the rocker and the farm girl soon grow close and realize that they make sweet music together. But can a girl who craves the stability of life on a farm really make it work with a man whose life is spent on the road with his band?

Ever since I finished You Really Got Me, the first book in this series, I fell in love with Derek's sweet and caring personality. He was such a good brother to Emmie and I couldn't wait to see him have his own book. And to no surprise, it was just as sexy and amazing as I thought it would be!

Derek Valencia has finally made it big with his band, but not all of his bandmates are ready for the responsibility that comes with rock stars. Sex and drugs start to take over and Derek is watching his band crumble before his eyes. Enter Violet Davis. Violet has been working as a minder for those who need someone to keep them in check and she's hired to help out Derek's band. Derek doesn't need a babysitter, but the more time he spends with the sweet farm girl, he starts to find that it's impossible to keep his mind, or hands, off of her…

Oh boy, this book. I freaking loved every second of it. Derek was a sweet brother to Emmie, but he definitely has his bad boy side when it comes to women. From the moment Derek and Violet met, I knew it would be a fun ride and I loved how hard they fought against their attraction for one another. Violet didn't want to fall for a musician and Derek didn't want someone coming to his band and doing something he felt he should have been able to handle. Too bad for them they had such intense chemistry that it didn't matter what either of them wanted. 

What I have loved the most about the two books I have read by Erika Kelly is that her characters are real people with real insecurities and real problems. Derek was having insecurities concerning his father and Violet was trying to just make a home for herself. I loved the depth to Violet's character and how she wanted her own wildflower farm. It was so adorable when the guys spent some time at her house and Violet was finally finding that bond she was so jealous of Emmie for having with the band. 

Overall, this was definitely another hit for me from Erika Kelly. With irresistible musicians and irresistible chemistry, you can't go wrong with this Rock Star Romance series. I am already eager to read book three and watch yet another sexy rock star fall in love.
