#Review: Summer of Irreverence (The Rock Star) by Catherine Goldstein | @CathrineGold #Giveaway

Summer of Irreverence
The Rock Star
by Cathrine Goldstein

Genre: Adult Romance
The Wild Rose Press

Summary from Goodreads:

Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm. 

Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.

When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?

DISCLAIMER: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, regarding this blog tour. This review will not contain spoilers, just my final thoughts.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
This book was beautiful. It has its funny moments and it has its sad moments. The sad moments were tear-jerkers. Malcolm's background especially. And Summer . . . drop-dead gorgeous, looks like a model, but she's a vet-surgeon. I love how the relationship develops and how Malcolm and Summer are conflicted about the way they feel. When the lie unfolds . . . Amazingly written and well portrayed.
