Gambled away by her brother, Freya is now bound to the music world's resident bad boy Liam Henderson as his live-in maid.
Freya Coleman is a struggling artist who can hardly get by. With a past she would rather not revisit and a future that didn't extend past her next cup of coffee, something had to change. Freya just didn't know how much.

Liam Henderson lives in the spotlight. His wild nights and latest conquests make every woman want him, and every man wants to be him. The rockstar has a carefully constructed persona to keep everyone out. That is, until a drunken night gets out of hand and he finds himself with the winning hand in a poker game, and the prize is a feisty redhead. A prize who just might break down the walls he has been so desperately hiding behind.

Thrown together, these two are a disaster waiting to happen. A disaster the world is eager to watch and comment on until their fingers drop off. What starts off as a fake relationship to improve Liam’s image, blossoms into so much more, and Freya is swept up into the world of bright lights and illusions. Everyone has an opinion when the lights are shining on their beloved rock god Liam Henderson, and they are eagerly waiting to tear down anyone who is bathed in the famous glow.

Can happily ever after exist when the whole world is watching?

MY REVIEW

I'm gonna keep this one short and sweet. Hopefully. Liam was a famous rock star who was extremely adept at manipulatung Freya. He got her to be his maid, to move in with him, to pretend to date him, and to eventually be his real girlfriend. He was selfish, arrogant and self-entitled. But that was to be expected because he was rich and famous and a huge party lover and predominantly promiscuous. Freya helped to calm him but didn't feel like she got much out of the deal. She had a hard time accepting his stardom.

There's some character depth and an interesting plot. I just couldn't connect with the story. I didn't like Freya. She was immature, irrational, ungracious and ungrateful. All 3 stars go to Liam. He showed the most growth and I can appreciate how much the author put into his characterization. He was easy to like and I only wish that this book had more of his POV. Oh Davis was a sweetheart that I was happy to meet as well!
