Its official, I love every book I read by Megan Derr. My first book by the author was The Missing Butterfly and since then I been reading all her fantasy books. Love You Like A Romance Novel brought the magic, and man I am in love with her rocker boys.
Jet has just hit gold, when he finds out his most perfect cousin writes steamy romance novel under a pen name. This comes as a surprise because his cousin is like an emotional robot, rich, and with lawyer attitude. As the lawyer for his rock band Forever and a Dai, Jet knows how much of a bastard his cousin Jason can be. There is no love lost between them, and the only time they get along is when they're fucking (so yes...Jet blackmailed him for the nookie). What started out as just sex might have escalated into more (but the boys are keeping that part to themselves), besides all this family bonding is illegal, and if they're family found about it well....
When Jet father dies of a heart attack and leaves his company and fortune to him, Jet is pissed because he never wanted it. That's why he left home 11yrs ago and they never tried to talk with him. His music is his life and that’s how he likes. The vulture that is his family descends because they want the company, but Jet wants to sell and the drama unfolds. Death threats, a family divided, and a romance forbidden. Jason and Jet have a lot on their very rich plates.
WooHoo, I liked the crap out of this one. There was angst, and rich people problems, and pretty rocker boys wearing make-up *swoon*. What I enjoyed the most is the relationship between Jason and Jet (yes, I know their cousins, and yea I'm pervy like that), I liked watching them get from point A to point B. Jason the fierce protector of his family, but if you piss him off he's not afraid to go ruthless on your ass. Jet, who just wants to sing and love Jason, and maybe prance around naked in public, it's a case of opposites attract, and man do they rock out.
Throw in the media, and syndicate crime bosses and you have yourself one entertaining read. Yes, some of it was a bit over the top but it worked cus it's all about the rockstars baby and crazy rich people. A little twist at the end there, which made Jet and Jason able to shout their love from the Hollywood sign but..., I am not in love with it. Megan Derr proves her versatility in writing, with Love You Like A Romance Novel.
Should You Read It? I don't even know why you're even thinking about it. Just run and go get it, and get lost in all its awesome. Ms Derr is hands down in my top ten of fave authors. I love this book like a romance novel (cheesy, but suck it). :D (less)

Rue Murray Mr Flamboyant bartender working his way through hairdressing school, has a pretty awesome life. HE makes good tip, he can a new hook-up each night if so he chooses an he’s just waiting for the call that will take him to California for his dream job. Rue’s life is shaken up when a night of experimentation a few months back walks back into his life and proclaims she is three months pregnant, and the baby is his.
Rue never dreamed he would become a father but his little girl has become the most important person in his life. With the help of his best-friend Dusty, Rue is trying to make life with a newborn work but he still needs to work and go to school. He needs a daycare/babysitter stat, but finding one is tough and expensive. Rue decides to take a chance on his next-door neighbour, doesn’t matter how weird he is.
Eric is a struggling writer, crazy Star Wars fan, and cripplingly shy. He doesn’t do crowds, he doesn’t do people, and he definitely doesn’t do babies. When his neighbour asks him to baby-sit, Eric’s first answer is even though the money will be useful. He says yes finally but for reasons that are even a surprise to him. So begins the relationship between Eric and a little baby girl, and he finds the family he never knew he wanted.
Can I just say that I love the pants off of Eric! From his very first scene he captured my heart and now I am all kinds of in love with him. I enjoyed the build-up of friendships and the slow walk it took into becoming a romance. As a mother, I freaking love reading about babies/kids when it’s written in a feel good perspective. One Small Thing is all feel good, and if you want to just smile and get a good HEA. Then OST is for you.
There is some conflict thrown in with Rue’s best friend Dustin that really makes Eric shine. It definitely killed two birds with one stone, by offering up how strong Eric is and shedding light on the character of Dusty. Which makes me all kinds of excited for his book. I liked Rue, but that’s pretty much all I feel for him. He was very strong and unique in the beginning of the book but his fire rather fizzled for me by the end. I did love his pyjamas though!
I really did enjoy reading this one and it put a huge smile on my face. As I said I love the crap out of Eric, I am such a sucker for geeky/shy characters, they are my kryptonite. I am looking forward to Dusty’s book, which hopefully has some Alice time. I wanna see how she’s thriving with so many wonderful men in her life. Hats off to Piper & M.J.(less)

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE - Fergus likes to hit too much! He is always raising his hands and hitting his lovers like he's hardcore. I don't like abuse because thats what it is, not a fit between men. - Fergus (it was my sincere hope that he got run over by a bus or the limo he likes to ride in. Asshole)
WHAT I LIKED - The artwork is awesome (set up like a yaoi novel with a few drawings at important or super sexy scenes) - It's all effing pretty boys, Darien likes that she likes it good. - Judas! He is like a pretty fly boy pimp, what you see is what you get with him (SLUT)
It's important to remember that it is yaoi, so shit is outrageous and most things aren't solved just forgotten. (less)
