It seemed like a good idea at the time. Get over my break-up by having a one-night stand with a rock ‘n’ roll hottie and move on with my life. Going on tour as the official photographer to the world’s number one band was not part of the plan.

Have you ever dreamed of being plucked out of the crowd by one of the hottest rock stars in the world?

Just perfect..

As a result I grew up quick. I shut down my own emotions to cater to everyone else's. I guess it was my way of coping...

So, choosing to read a rock star based novel had me at a love/hate mindset. Knowing that it could go either way, from experience, I did not really know what to expect.


Funny - oh-so-funny!









Saying that I am a sucker for rockstars would be an understatement. Unfortunately, having read so many bo

Loved it from the beginning. But, I do have an important question... In this day and age, why do the heroines have to be virgins or only have one previous partner. Not that I'm free love type of woman giving it away at the drop of a hat and can still use one hand to count my partners. I was the calm one of my friends growling up. The way these books read I should be happy married popping out babies to a man who adores me. Some reality ladies... All my friends who dropped panties at the snap of a ...more
This is another rockstar book that I really enjoyed! The characters were interesting and the story was fun and not so full of drama. Just an easy read! The book centers around two brothers who have become rockstar legends and two sisters who just happen to attract their attention. While at a concert for Ozstryker (which for the life of me I tried and tried to pronounce their name and just couldn’t get two sisters Layla and Beth are having a grand old time rocking out to their music.

Loved this thought it would be like others ive read but it wasn't.

Yes it had angst but sweetness too. loved the characters and the plot.

Love Penny's ability to keep you turning the pages without coming to predictions in the story.

A love story with unseen obstacles, great friends, sexy men, and kick ass music. All the good stuff wrapped up in one smoking hot book. To say the least I'm in love with Jax & Layla. The sexy guitar God that is still just a little uncomfortable with the fame and the nerdy girl with the camera that takes his and the band's pictures makes a great love story. A added bonus is Beth and Jimmy what a flamboyant couple. I don't think I could say enough good things about this book. ...more

Ugh... I really enjoyed this book up until about 82%. After that, I lost respect for both of the MCs. Everything ended up working itself out in the end, but the behavior exhibited by them would not reflect for a healthy relationship in real life. I don't want to give any spoilers away, but I will say that the first 80% was definitely a 4 star read for me and the last 20% was more like 1-2 stars. It was well written, but I didn't like the direction the author took. ...more

I was so excited to start this book. I have not read a good rocker book in a while and this book did not disappoint. What can I say; I have a special place in my heart for hot rock stars!!! I loved the two main characters, Layla and Jax. The author did a great job at allowing their relationship to grow. Yes, they were physically attracted to each other when they first met but no insta-love crap. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat reading this book waiting t

Review by Jen Hagen

Jax Ozstryker is the lead guitarist of a top-rated rock band founded by him and his older brother, Jimmy. He is 26 years old but has had experiences in his life that make him much wiser beyond those years. He has seen rock bottom and has worked hard to rise above and keep himself grounded. He also wears his heart on his sleeve and is ready to find somebody to settle down with to complete his family.

Beautiful Dangerous was a story of two people from two totally different worlds. You meet Layla, who is sweet, shy and kind of nerdy. The complete opposite of her out going crazy but hilarious sister Beth. Then there is Jax, charming, sweet and did I mention he's a sexy guitar player of a very successful band.

Layla and Jax meet when he invites her backstage after a concert. Layla and Jax hit it off but not in the way you think. They spend the night talking until Layla passes out on Jax's lap.

This is the first book I've read from Penny Dee and it won't be the last! I am in love with her writing! You can feel the emotions coming right off the pages, I was sucked in as soon as Jax looked at Layla. Could you imagine THE sex God of guitars looking at you? YOU!! Wow, this story is amazing, Layla doesn't even know who Jax Ozstryker is but she can't keep her eyes from lingering to his perfect, delicious body.

So this is my second book by Penny Dee and it was also a really great story! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This book is also about band/music rockstars. You meet Layla & Jax. She wanted to have a one night stand with a rockstar to get over her bad breakup. So when her sister took her to the concert it was a perfect opportunity.

Instead she ends up falling asleep & getting a job as a Tour Photographer for the band! Definitely not what she was expecting & neither was Max. LOL let me tell you that it was

I thought I was going to either hate it or love it. And I love it. I love so much that this is not a book about fangirling or groupies!!! By 50% way through it, I loved it. Sure, there's some cheese and some eye rolling but the main characters are great. I was wary about most books involving "rock gods" but the characters are genuine. They stay true and don't waver in their core characteristics. Definitely one book I couldn't put down and read in one sitting.

Oh Penny Dee this was a fantastic read!! I loved every bit of it from beginning to end! I loved each character. Beth and Jimmy, Jax and Layla. I laughed and cried! One of the most original of The Rock genre I've read in a long time. You definately know how to tell a story!

Really enjoyed this read. Everything about it, storyline, fast paced, hot sexy tattooed Rockers, angsty and freaking hot 🔥! Everything I want from a Rockstar genre read.
My only complaint is I thought Layla forgave him to quickly. Overview would recommend this book.

This is my first Penny Dee book and I really enjoyed the read. Very well written in spite of a few small editing errors. All the characters were well portrayed and you are able to immerse yourself in them and their worlds.

Jax the sexy Musician and his flamboyant brother, Jimmy both meet and fall in love with sisters Layla and Beth. Both couples are perfectly matched and while this story was Jax and Layla's i was equally enthralled with the

One word for this book is......Amazing!!!
I was recommended Penny Dee's debut book "Crazy Beautiful" by a friend awhile back and that story blew me away. I couldn't wait to see what Penny Dee would release next. Once I saw she was releasing Beautiful Dangerous and I saw the synopsis I knew I wanted to read it immediately. It sounded just as good as her debut story and I couldn't wait to start reading.
I love Rockstar stories and Penny Dee's had a way with her writing that made the characters come

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author in exchange for a review.

Beautiful Dangerous is set in the music arena, with main character Layla being dragged to a concert by her sister. The concert sets her life on a completely new path, full of highs and lows. It's not a simple 'Boy meets girl, they fall in love' story. In the spotlight associated with a majorly successful band, there are plenty of hurdles and turns that the main characters must overcome.

I am so in love with Penny Dee'

What a great sexy love story and the sexual tension was off the charts hot. I was screaming at the book just do her already would you. Jax is not your typical rockstar. He's not out screwing everything, he's not strung out on drugs, and he's not a selfish prick. He will be your next book boyfriend. I loved every moment of this journey of Layla and Jax's journey. Layla gets dragged to a concert with her fun loving sister Beth but Lalya has never heard of the band they are seeing. Right from the m ...more

So, right away I'm going to say that Penny Dee has created characters and voices of those characters that I really enjoyed. I don't usually enjoy the first person perspective even if I enjoy a book but the voice of Layla and Jax made me adore first person. And it's been a little while since that has happened. So Bravo!

Beautiful Dangerous also made me feel so many emotions, some heartbreaking, some sweet, and just you feel a lot of

Holy, HOT ROCKER!! Ink Angels was one of the privileged few to receive an ARC of Beautiful Dangerous and I could not be happier. This story had it all. I have not always been a fan of rocker romances, but Penny Dee does not disappoint readers with Jax Ozstryer. Jax has all the sexy characteristics you expect from a rock idol and the endearing qualities of a seasoned partner and lover. Thank the heavens for leather pants and guitar gods.

Layla and Jax will keep readers wanting more of their story

Another great rockstar romance.
This was just a really nice story about two people who meet by chance, end up working together, all the time fighting their attraction for each other.
Two brothers who happen to be the hottest commodity in single rockstars. And two sisters who are on the ride of their lives when they spend four months on tour with a rock band.
There was lots of sexual tension, a bit of drama, a some seriously hot rockers.
