Review: Kiro's Emily by Abbi Glines

Genre: Contemporary Romance - Rockstars

Series: Rosemary Beach (book 10 - novella)

Publication Date: 15th December 2014

Format: ebook


The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything—and anyone—he wants.

So when a dark-haired, conservative beauty rebuffs him at a concert after-party, his first thought is, “Who the hell does she think she is?” His second thought: “How do I make her mine?” Kiro has always loved a good challenge, but not every girl wants to get involved with a rock god. Especially this girl.

He let her go that night, but he never forgot her. And when they met again, he vowed not to give up again so easily.

As the world worshipped Kiro, he came to worship the girl, who became everything he never knew he needed. The only girl he would ever love. His Emily.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Thoughts:

Who could resist this free novella if they’d read Grant and Harlow’s books within the Rosemary Beach series?
 Not me. I discovered it on amazon, hit buy and that was that; A couple of hours of non-stop reading.

This book was everything that you’d expect of Kiro Manning if you’re a fan of the Rosemary Beach series: Pure and virginal princess and manwhore (rockstar).

Kiro is outrageous, but he treats Emily like a queen and it broke my heart because it was a great story but if you’ve read the rest of the series, you know they never truly get their happy ever after; Just a bittersweet happy for now.

I loved seeing a baby Rush (despite the fact he acted too old to be a two year old) and I found Dean to be every bit as awesome and amusing as he is in the other books. Georgiana makes an appearance too and if you didn’t think you could hate her more, you were wrong.

The book isn’t anything overly special, but it makes a nice addition to the series and I really enjoyed it.

The only thing that made me want to scream was the whole paparazzi photos on the internet… in 1992???!!!! Sure, the internet existed in 1992, but it was in it’s infancy. Websites were clunky and basic. Definitely not the environment of a thriving paparazzo but anywho…
I think fans of the series would value this as a welcome addition. Newcomers could read it and enjoy it but would probably be a little confused at the end.
