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)

This book reads like a yaoi manga. It offers up outrageous characters, a larger than life story and leaves you feeling like most situations are never resolved. The book had the potential to be perfection, but overly described and elaborated scenes just left me rolling my eyes.
Billy Goldean is the biggest pop star in the world. Known as Goldie, he has teenage girls eating out of his hands and going putty at his feet. His life is glam star rich and he looks like he has it all. He has the looks, the money and undying fan following. Well, there is a lot more at the surface of it all, seems Goldie life is only glamorous in the materialistic way, and his true self is hidden behind all the make-up and glam squad clothing. Until an article in rolling stone gets his interest and ultimately might change his life.
Jett Black is sitting in dingy motel talking with an up and coming reporter for Rolling Stone magazine. He’s the bad boy of underground rock, and the man that gets all the women. He would rather be famous for his music, but instead he’s famous for his conquests. When the reporter asks about the one person he would like to sleep with, his answer is both shocking and sexy. He’s a ladies man and to say he wants the hottest pop star in the world, his fans and Goldie’s fans are in for a surprise.
Billy is super happy about what Jett wants to do with him, but the downside is no one knows he is gay, he might be the hottest shit in the world but he is overly insecure. When a label meeting in an upscale penthouse is becoming all sorts of wrong, Jett crashes in all foaming at the mouth, and becomes Goldie’s knight in shining black liner.
As I said before this book had the potential of being perfection, but the overly dramatic scenes and dialogue just made it an ok read. I feel like nothing was resolved and that is still left, is the flawed characters and their insecurities. There were times when I really liked Jett, but he kills it with his obnoxious behaviour, and drunken rants. I am talking outrageous like a Lady Gaga outfit.
The relationship between Jett and Goldie I found a bit confusing. They say they love each both, but clearly both find it hard to believe. I found nothing sexy about their lovemaking, I rather they dirty talk it up. I am just clearly not satisfied and I really hope the authors revisit these characters again. Jett kinda pisses me off, and I want Goldie to have more balls (and by balls, I mean standing up for himself without the aid of Jett. I don’t mean I think of him as a woman). I guess my dislike comes from the fact, that Jett is always inebriated. I just did not like that aspect of the story, it was too much all the time.
SideNote- The cover clearly is very pretty. I did enjoy Goldie's description, I can honestly say I do enjoy my men pretty.
SideNote2- As you can see I am really liking the word clearly,lol.
