Review: Knocked Up By The Rockstar by Christina Hovland

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

The only thing music publicist Courtney Lincoln dislikes more than knock-off sugary breakfast cereal is Dimefront’s lead singer—Brennan “Bax” Baxter. So when she discovers she’s pregnant following one teeny, tiny, mind-blowing morning with her nemesis, her world tumbles upside down.

Dimefront is on the rocks. Again. Bax is ready to move on. But following the implosion of his engagement, he makes a slip-up that ties him to Courtney as unlikely co-parents. He doesn’t like Courtney. Doesn’t care for how she’s able to see straight through the façade he’s painstakingly curated. But he’s always wanted a family and he’s being offered that chance.

Now the band is mending fences, there’s a baby on the way, and feelings start getting tangled. Maybe Bax isn’t really such a jerk? Perhaps Courtney could be the woman of his dreams? Or, maybe, just maybe, they were right all along…



My Thoughts:

Knocked up is absolutely not what Courtney saw for her future, and she certainly never thought it would involve Dimefront Rockstar Bax who is a legendary man-whore.  Christina Hovland takes that premise and turns it into a hilarious romantic comedy in her latest novel, Knocked Up by the Rockstar. This second book in her Mile High Rockers series is a little sweet with a lot of heat!

Bax, the other members of Dimefront and Courtney grew up together. When the band hit it big, Courtney came on as part of the management team.  When Courtney’s much needed girl’s night out is interrupted by having to be Bax’ handler, she is not happy!  With his imploded engagement, he is liable to make all kinds of bad decisions, but Courtney isn’t having to manage a bad boy, but a melancholy guy which makes him seem a lot like the Brennan she grew up with.

From that night on, the forward trajectory of the book is funny.  Author Christina Hovland has a unique way of spinning everyday situations so that readers can see the humor in almost any situation.  I enjoyed the story arc and the writing.  The plot stays on track and the pace is quick.  I wouldn’t say that I embraced either of the main characters, but they worked well together.  Knocked Up by the Rockstar is a quick, fun read with little angst, making it a good read!
