Hot Mess: A Players Rockstar Romance (Players, Book 1) by Jaine Diamond


Rating: 4 out of 5.

A swoony, second chance romance—with a twist—featuring a regrettable tattoo, an irresistible, broken-hearted hero, and the sweet heroine who’s destined to be his.

Fate. Destiny. Karma… She’s mine.

It all started with a broken heart.
And a breakup party.
Rock stars. Circus freaks. And a bachelorette party.
Too. Much. Booze.
An embarrassing tattoo.
And a twist of fate.

Her name was Danny.

I thought she was The One.
But then I lost her.
And I never thought I’d see her again.
Now… I’m a mess.
I’ve had my heart broken—more than once—and my band’s broken up.
I’ve sworn to myself that I’ll never fall in love again.
Time to focus on new music and my new band.

As soon as I sober up from my latest breakup party…

But then there she is.
Standing in the rain, looking at me.
My dream girl.
My destiny…
I missed my chance with her once.
Maybe this time… I’ll get it right.

My Review

This is the first book in my summer reading challenge list . I loved starting off with this book as I have read this Author before and loved her previous writting. There is just something about hot rockstars, romance and the life of the rich and famous that makes an appealing story to kick off the #20booksofsummer21 reading challenge.

I love that this is a stand-alone book but can be read as part of the Players 4 book Series or as part of her interconnected series with the Dirty 6 book series. This book is from a double point of view. First, we meet Ashley Player, who has many appearances in the series mentioned above. Ashley is a rockstar. He loves to make music and have fun. Second, this book has a serious time jump between the introduction and the first chapter. That first intro was exciting but a little secretive on the details.

 Ashley player is a major hot mess in this book. Things couldn’t get more turned around in this book than thinking you have run into one person and finding out it isn’t who your thought it was. Especially after thinking about them for a numbr of years wondering if you will ever see them again, I love how the author adapted the twins’ concept and still makes the romance work in this book. I know Ashley is a wild, crazy rock star from previous stories, but I loved watching him find himself in this book. This book is hot and steamy full of emotional conversations and lots of bedroom fun and oops moments. Danica is a nice compliment to Ashleys’ wild and crazy personality with her own quirky shy personality. She really made this book fun to read.

This book isn’t just about romance, and yes, it is a lengthy novel. But, I love that it also included Ashley’s career and goal and his dreams in it. Danica and Ashley’s romance is super sweet and well thought out. The author did a great job having many events for them to interact and learn about each other before things got steamy. I loved that they didnt just jump right into love and relationship. They actually got to know each other and yes there were some moments in this book that shocked me as a reader. This is a slow-burn romance as it takes them both a while to come around to the idea of love. I also loved that this book included Ashley’s close friends like Dylan, Summer, and his new bandmates. It all comes together at the end of the book ending happily. The author included great connections to her previous series Dirty which as I have read that I loved .

If you would like to read Hot Mess: A Players Rockstar Romance (Players, Book 1) by Jaine Diamond you can find it on Amazon. As an Amazon associate I earn for qualifying purchases.
