From NYT Bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, comes a SEXY new stand alone romance

When you
re a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I’m being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue.
Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still
my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy.
s why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim and totally straight-laced Emma doesn’t want anything to do with me. Not professionally, and certainly not personally.
It’s not that I want her in that way. Let’s be realistic
it would take a crow bar of epic proportions to get her to spread those legs for me.
No, I only want her legal expertise and for her to make sense of my crazy world. It
s a good thing I have just the leverage to make her do my bidding, because her refusal is not an option.

*Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll is a hot, romantic comedy stand alone.

After being a famous self-made rock star for just over a year now, Evan is in huge trouble.
One of his former band members has been killed and the cops think he did it. Because the band wasn't all that happy with him going out on his own.
He calls his lawyer aunt to help him, but what does she do? She sends the most green little lawyer she has on staff. Emma. A beautiful, sweet, innocent girl.

Emma is working at the firm where her dad is a partner, but it's not her dream job. She doesn't want to go to court and do stuff like that, she'd rather spend all day going over contracts and legal documents.

But then her boss sends her to the police to help this sexy rock star  ...
And he hates her on sight. Well, not really hate, but he doesn't yet believe in her professional talent.

But that changes pretty fast and Evan wants Emma to go on tour with him, to go over the contracts the record companies have sent him. And to handle the law suit his ex band mates have started!

Off they go.
And of course it doesn't take them long to start something.
But Emma is not cut out for that life....or is she?
And Evan? He's supposed to be out there partying it up and having the sexy time of his life. But he might just want the exact same things Emma want....


I really enjoyed this story!
Whenever I hear ROCKSTAR in a blurb, I just have to read it!

And it was a pretty great rockstar book. With a bit of excitement and lots of fun and sexiness thrown in!

I finished it pretty quickly in one afternoon and I really enjoyed it.
It was a great, sexy, adorable rock star thingy.

Evan is a great guy. So not the spoiled rock star STAR like so many are.
He's down to earth and he just wants to be loved and to write and play his music.
And Emma has been waiting for just such a guy to lure her out of her boring and daring-less life.
Too adorable!

I think I would've wanted to hear a bit more about Evan. We don't dig much deeper than a couple lines about his parents. This could've/should've been a 2/3-book series with lots more details and excitement.
Just something a bit deeper and just...more. Because Evan is a really great character. There were possibilities for more. But it was okay the way it was. It was a great & sexy little rock star romance!

I loved the secret star of the book - Sirius - Emma's dog - he is allowed to come on tour too. Too cute!

As always, I had some tiny little problems with the writing...but that's just me and Sawyer. She always uses way too many AS's in her books (instead of using since or because). And it sounds so british and stilted and formal and meh, I hate it. But as I said, that's only me! ☺
Oh, and the cover? While kind of pretty - it looks more like a patriotic sports romance than a rockstar thing.

SEXY LIES AND ROCK & ROLL was a great rock star romance!
Evan and Emma have some very sexy and adorable and frustrating moments for us! Run to your nearest amazon to find out how the rock star and the quiet & shy lawyer will fight for their HEA!!!


ARC received for an honest review

Ms Bennett, you had me at rock star

It is no secret that if Ms Bennett writes a book, this girl is going to read it.  Whether it is cowboys or lawyers, or sexy as sin rock stars, I will devour it.

Evan and Emma's story is a cute one, though at times I couldn't understand Evan's infatuation with her  She was so hot and cold to him that I felt that at times it took away from their connection - bu this could just be me.

Don't get me wrong, I liked her but she frustrated more than Evan did - and it is usually the rock starts whorish ways that irritate me more than anything!  I am not quite sure what it was that made me feel like this though.

I did like the way Evan drew her out of her shell.  He could infuriate her more that anyone else, bring out the fire in her.

The star of this book is definitely Emma's dog, Sirius!  he is such the unruly puppy that he made me laugh with his antics.

There are some great secondary characters that made this story even better, especially Evan's aunt and Emma's dad.

I felt that we could have learned more about Evan's parents though.  There is so much there to know, but we only got a few snippets here and there about them.  I also felt that there was more we could have learned about Evan's ex band mates, but things there just seemed to be an easy fix.

But again, this could just be me.

If you are looking for a cute and sweet rock star book, this is the go.
