Review of Striking A Chord by Dani Wade
Striking A Chord by Dani Wade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved it! Sean is not just a hot drummer, he's a hot Irish drummer and I had a blast imagining him speaking with a brogue. Yummy! And as a BBW myself, a sexy rocker who prefers a little cushion for the pushin' is double yummy in my book. Add the plus-sized southern belle, Meghan, who is a realistic combination of feistiness tempered with image issues and this made Striking a Chord a super fun read for me.
Sean had been waiting months to meet his personal assistant with the super sexy voice. Thanks to internet and cell phones, Meghan has been able to avoid a face to face with her boss, until now and she's not sure she can deal with the disappointment she expects him to feel when he learns she's a size 14 and not a size 4. Although she's not what he expected, Sean is not the least bit disappointed in his PA ... until he learns that she has arranged for his estranged brother to meet with him. Someone's getting a spanking (yes, I said that out loud in a sing song voice). And thus begins a bit of an adventure when Sean returns home, dragging Meghan with him, as he attempts to reconcile with his dying father while dealing with a series of unexplained accidents. All the while, trying to figure out what to do with his sassy secretary after 3 months of verbal foreplay. Of course, Meghan can't believe that someone as sexy as Sean could actually be attracted to her and the emotional wounds her ex-husband inflicted are just one more obstacle Sean has to overcome. Fortunately for Meghan (and the reader), Sean is ready, willing, and able to do what needs to be done where Meghan is concerned and let me just say that she is one lucky, lucky girl.
Ms. Wade has created an entertaining couple in Meghan and Sean. I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and found myself laughing out loud several times at their banter. Striking a Chord is the third book in the Backstage Pass series, but it is written as a stand-alone and can be enjoyed without reading the previous books in the series. However, with as much as I enjoyed Ms. Wade's writing, I plan to go back and read books one and two.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
