There are so many things I LOVE about Author Erika Kelly’s I Want You To Want Me that I have trouble knowing where to begin! This is my first Erika Kelly book and now I am dying to read more! I must go back and read book one in the Rock Star Romances series because I fell in love with Emmie and Slater while reading this book. The stars are most definitely Violet and Derek. I instantly liked Violet because it was obvious she was a smart, strong-willed capable woman and most importantly she knows what she wants. I like the fact that she takes such pride in the work she does. I know how empowering that can be. I also felt for her vulnerable side. Violet and Derek are much the same in this respect. He is also driven to accomplish his goals and feels deeply about what he does. And like Violet is vulnerable. It’s completely obvious to the reader that these two are simply perfect for each other but it’s going to take some convincing for them.
I Want You To Want Me takes the reader into the seductive world of the Rock Star. It’s easy to see how things can get carried away very fast. For instance, the insane chemistry between Derek and Violet is impossible to ignore. They are sexy hot and their flirting is blush inducing. I could read about these two all day long. As a matter of fact I read about them all night long because once I began the book I could not stop reading until I finished! Ms. Kelly definitely knows her romance and she packs I Want You To Want Me with tons of it! I want more and I want it now! I’m afraid that the Letters to Cleo song “I Want You To Want Me” will be in my head until the next book lands at my doorstep!
I Want You To Want Me is a romance that has it all! It’s a MUST Read and a Joyfullly Recommended Read!
