Book Review/Blitz: Dex (Kinky Shine #1) By Stephanie Witter


Dex
(Kinky Shine #1)
By Stephanie Witter

Release Day: May 3rd
For readers over 18 only.

She succeeded in making him feel like a man. A normal functioning man when he hadn’t felt that way in years.

When my father, manager of the worldwide phenomenon Kinky Shine, asked me to come and help the band members appear more approachable I never thought my first meeting with Dex Bowers would start with such a question.

Immediately, I wanted to strangle him, wipe the smirk off his face and force him to mutter more than three words.

But there's something mysterious about him that was electrifying and the more he pushed me away and angered me, the more I wanted to know him and push through his hangups.

"Trust. That f*cking trust thing didn't come easily to me."

In the five years since my band became famous, not once had I been photographed with a woman. I knew it fed the supposed mystery surrounding me, but the real truth was far more humiliating than I was comfortable with.

That was until Harley Floyd walked in and I was left with a mind numbing lust for her that scared me shitless. It should be easy to let go and trust her just enough to have fun, to be happy I could finally come up with new material for our next album. But nothing was easy and with a life made of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll I wasn't sure if anything could last. Not even my band.

My Review:

* I received an eARC from the author in exchange of an honest review.

This was a very entertaining rockstar romance. It was a quick and easy read. I enjoyed the story as a whole and I can't wait to find out what Maxen's story will be like. I have a small suspicion that it will involve Harley's BFF, but at this point, only the author knows. 

I liked Harley as a character. She has a backbone and stands up for herself, but doesn't come off as rude or annoying. I loved the scene when she first meets Dex. I was giggling like a mad woman all by myself, it probably looked like I was having a mental breakdown of some sort. 

I didn't love Dex at first, because of the aforementioned scene. I also didn't understand why he got so angry at Harley for keeping Maxen's secret from him for less than 24 hours. My dog has kept more secrets from me for much longer and you don't see him out on the streets all by himself. I'd also like the mention that they weren't even an "official" couple at the time, so she technically had no obligation to him whatsoever. After all that passed, I did warm up to him and I found the ending very sweet (but considering what happened, it was very rushed due to the time they were together).

In conclusion, I want to get to know Maxen and his dark past. I hope he'll live up to the expectations I'm already piling on for his story. I also hope to see Dex and Harley in future novels and get even more insight on how life is treating them as the "time" passes.

My Favorite Quote:

"Sometimes it was best to keep a made up opinion of someone you appreciate for their work because the real deal wasn't as thrilling."
