When a big-city agent wants to rent the abandoned chapel on the Bowens’ property for an obscene amount of money, it seems like a deal of a lifetime . . . there’s just one small catch.
Disgraced, broken-down, whisky-swilling rock god Nathaniel Black is set to make a comeback, or at least that’s what his long-suffering agent is hoping.
Nathaniel’s last chance for salvation is to lock himself away from the temptations of his wicked life. With no women, no booze, and no drugs. Only the music. The one thing he didn’t count on was forming a complex, life-changing bond with a reclusive, talented songbird, Sadie Bowen.
Twenty three-year-old Sadie has all of Nathaniel’s cassette tapes under her bed and his tattered poster lining the inside of her wardrobe door. And now he’s here, in her backyard, eating her food and sharing her bathroom—a dream come true, right? Until Sadie realises her teenage idol is the most infuriating, arrogant man-child she has ever met.
Will seclusion lead to destruction? Or will Sadie finally get a chance to learn who the real man is behind the music? One thing is clear: despite every voice inside her head telling her to stay away, she can’t.
She can’t help it, can’t fight it.
Nathaniel Black is about to become her favourite mistake.

Book was great loved the story and the strong female lead and the rock star, tension between the two keep in interested and reading wanted to get to the end thanks for another great story
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
When I started reading this book I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but as I read I realised I was pleasantly surprised with the book. It had me feeling a bit of every emotion from sadness to anger and even embarrassment. I absolutely loved the interactions between Nathaniel and Sadie though out the book.
I love CJ’s books, the settings feel so real it’s easy to imagine yourself in the locations. The greatest art though is being able to write realistic characters and CJ does that again and again. I loved this book and am so glad I finally got to meet Sadie and Nathaniel. I couldn’t put this book down, I needed to find out what happens and a couple of times was very tempted to jump to the end! So glad I didn’t, if you love a good story with relatable characters (even if you never meet or have met a rock star) this is a fantastic book!
