Would you spend ten days traveling the country with someone you despised if he promised to pay off your student loans?

Recent college graduate, Harper Leigh, can barely make ends meet working as the books editor for a new online entertainment magazine, Chatter. With $85,000 of student loan debt about to go into repayment, she has no idea how she'll get by.

Just when she thinks things couldn't get worse, Harper's boss decides to embed her in the North American tour for the hot rock band, Always Rayne. Ten days on the road with the band for her to get an exclusive story. But Harper's a homebody and the last thing she wants to do is go on the road with a rock band. And she definitely doesn't want to spend ten days with the notorious bad boy and band front man, Nic Rayne.

When Nic proves to be too much for Harper to handle and she threatens to quit the assignment, Nic decides to sweeten the pot. If she stays with the tour for all ten days, he'll pay off all of her student loan debt....but there's one small catch.

Harper also has to sleep in his bed every night.

Even with every single cliché from Nic Rayne I still loved this cute rock star romance. Nic Rayne is the rock star that can and will have any girl that decides to try and sleep with him. But he only wants them for the night. Harper Leigh is a book editor for a new start up magazine. Now her boss wants her to follow the band on the last 10 days of their tour. Harper is anything but thrilled. She knows from interviews that Nic is not smart and is a huge player, until she meets him. Now he offering to pay off her student loans if she stays…and sleeps in his bed.

Harper Leigh is a straight-laced book editor for a new internet magazine. She is a home body and going on this tour is the last thing she wants to do. I wasn’t sure about her character at first. She was awfully judgey of someone she had never met before. Granted Nic and the other bands mates definitely love their women he is actually ridiculously smart. It took me a while to warm up to her character but that was because it took her a while to stop judging everything everyone did. I eventually did like her character. She was smart and was really into her job. She was a very confident person even though she didn’t know it. Yes she had moments where self-consciousness would come into play but she wasn’t intimated by Nic’s fame or his intelligence when she got to know him.

Nic Rayne is a rock star/ actor from the wrong side of the tracks. He didn’t have the greatest childhood but he escaped through his music. Now he is taken advantage of the company that comes with being famous. He is in the middle of sleeping his way through Hollywood when he meets Harper, who has a list of things she already doesn’t like about him. Nic has been looking for someone he can relate to and now he just has to get Harper to see it. Nic was great. He was sexy, smart, and musically talented. Who doesn’t love a rock star? I loved his character. Nic didn’t let the fame go to his head other than with the women but whatever. He was genuine and blunt and I loved that. Harper needed it.

The romance was so cute in this book. The two characters had to fall in love without sex in the beginning. They got to know each other with the sexual tension instead of sleeping together and getting to know each other after. The story was well writing and flowed really well. Each character seemed to jump off the page and bring their own twist to the story. Even though we didn’t get to know everyone well Sierra Avalon made them interesting enough that I want to read the next books!

This is the first book I have read from this author and I will definitely be reading more! This is a great book for anyone that likes the rock star/ actor romances!
