Ambitious graduate Marin Collins accepts a four-month internship at a prestigious public relations firm to work on a tech account, but her plans are derailed when she’s assigned to go on the road with touring rock band Kings Quarters, hailed by Rolling Stone as the next big thing.
Enter Brad Osterhauser, the reluctant rock star who would rather be coding computer games than penning Grammy-nominated songs.
Traveling by bus, city to city with a group of practical joking bandmates and a greedy manager, Marin and Brad forge a friendship and forbidden romance over a shared love of Seinfeld episodes, stolen moments and Red Vines.
But when Marin’s accused of betraying her company and the band, will Brad come to her defense or believe she was disloyal to him for the sake of her career?
Told in alternating perspectives of Marin and Brad, Starfish is a contemporary romance of unexpected love, the redemptive power of music and hogging the bed.
This was my first time reading Lisa Becker, so I had no idea what to expect, but I really enjoyed Marin and Brad! This story was extremely well written, and I can’t wait to go back and read more by Ms. Becker. I’d even love it if some of these characters found their ways to their own books (hint, hint)! This book is the perfect balance of steam, swoon, and heart.
Marin and Brad are an interesting couple. At first, they seem like opposites, but they both keep so much of themselves hidden. I absolutely loved the way they discovered so much about one another along the way and saw each other for who they truly were.
Marin is determined to make a successful career for herself. She has worked hard to get where she is, and she refuses to let anything ruin that. Starting up a forbidden is the last thing she wants or expects, but sometimes fate has other plans…and who could resist Brad?
Brad is hot, adorable, swoony, and a good guy. While he may have the hot rockstar vibe down, he genuinely cares about those he loves and has a heart of gold. While it’s easy to see why all the ladies love him, he stays incredibly down to earth and I love it! When it comes to Marin, he is completely swoon worthy! I love that while he nudges her along the way, he never pushes more than she is ready.
I really enjoyed the pacing of this story. I loved that we really got to know each of the characters. While their attraction and chemistry were there from the very beginning, I loved the build to their relationship. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. While this may have been my first book by Ms. Becker, I can guarantee it won’t be the last!
