"KC Klein is an author to watch." Rachel Gibson, New York Times Best Selling Author

"THE ROCK STAR COWBOY made me sad, mad, and swoon.... but most of all it had me rolling on the floor with laughter."

"This story was a great find, I loved it from cover to cover!" 


He left.

She stayed.

Now he's back and he's done playing.

What country music star, Brent Kane, needs is to find his muse. And what his muse needs is some good old-fashion, female distraction. Who knew that "female distraction" would come in the form of his best friend's prickly, little sister? 

DJ Diaz, the no-nonsense owner of DD ranch, doesn't have time to cater to the whims of a rock star...even if it is her childhood crush. She's learned firsthand the heartache of loving a man who'd rather live his life on stage than on a ranch with her.

But as the sexual tension heats up, DJ realizes there may be more to life than just hard work, but while having fun is one thing, keeping their hearts from becoming involved is another...especially when their lives are worlds apart. 

The Rock Star Cowboy is the first book in a gripping small town contemporary romance series. If you like gut-wrenching emotional love stories, fascinating and complex characters, and happily-ever-afters guaranteed to stay with you long after you close the book than KC Klein will become your new "go-to" author.

A Fun Western Romance!

Brent, a singing cowboy who’s lost his muse, is back in Somewhere, Texas to see if he can find his song muse again. He is staying at the ranch of his best friend while growing up, Derrek. Derrek’s sister, Danielle (DJ), who used to pester the devil out of both boys in their childhood, is now the owner/manager of the ranch following their parents’ death and is not happy about Brent hanging about their ranch because he ran out on her childhood crush on him. The cat and mouse chase that goes on between Brent and DJ is at times sad, angry, laugh-out-loud hilarious and hopeful. I recognized all of the different stages of romance, the pent-up longings, hope and blazing lust from my own growing up years and enjoyed reliving my young adulthood while reading this fun romance.

Humor and Romance

I honestly wasn't expecting much when I started reading this. I'm not usually into the cowboy or rock star thing but this book was wonderful. I couldn't put it down I stayed up into the night to finish in. It had me laughing out loud so much and the characters had real heart and motivation. I can't wait to read more from this author!

I Wanted More Rock Star

I love rock star romances - but I don't think there was enough rock star in this one for me. Still a very enjoyable romance, but it was far more cowboy than I had originally expected. This is more of a prodigal son returning home type of story. We don't get any of the glamour and glitz that I've come to love from rock star stories.

What we do get is a really sweet story of high school love coming full circle to hit both parties upside the head, telling them to get on with it already and fall in love again. Brent is trying to find his lost muse and get back to his roots. Staying with his best friend from high school and his little sister are just what he thinks he needs - until he realizes just how much DJ still means to him.

DJ thinks Brent is just a spoiled super star that doesn't know the value of hard word. I loved watching her lay into him when he did something wrong. She's a very strong female character that really knows how to make her cowboys jump. She's perfect from Brent, but just needs to put some past demons to rest before she can realize it.

What I liked best about this was that there wasn't really a "bad guy" in the story anywhere, and that neither character had some horrible character flaw to get over. It was just a matter of Brent and DJ realizing they were at the right place at the right time to finally make it work. (I still wanted some more rock star though.)
