Thanks for reading Incognito, and, yes, I'm planning a book for Nick and Tabs (as a couple) and *possibly* a second book featuring Shawn and Dakota.

I really enjoyed reading Incognito by Siobhan Davis. It wasn’t your basic rock star romance or your basic college romance. It squished the two together in a blender and made a wonderful mix of sweet, sexy, suspenseful and had a really good twist at the end that totally bamboozled me.

There were some wonderful characters, Dakota’s circle of friends, so different yet so caring and fun and the wonderful head of security Devin and his delightful family. There were some tense moments, and some moments
Love conquers all, pain from the past, misguided lies of omission and an ever-present danger lurking deep in the shadows.

INCOGNITO by Siobhan Davis the slow-building romantic tale of a rockstar in hiding, who has no time for love and a beautiful college student who gave up her dreams after a family tragedy that continues to haunt her.

Prepare for that romantic meltdown as one very hot, very masculine rockstar finds he cannot resist the beautiful small town woman who has no idea who he is, but is
Sex, secrets and rock and roll. With Incognito, Siobhan Davis puts a new adult twist in one of romance’s most attractive genres, because who doesn’t like a rock god bad boy with a heart of gold?

Her dreams of going to Julliard were within her grasp until a tragic event shattered not only Dakota’s ambitions but her family as well. Moving forward seems impossible, especially when she’s living someone else’s live by enrolling at a local university. But an accidental meeting with the school’s new gru

4.5/5 Rounded up

Incognito is a book with all the drama of university, and the passion of a rockstar romance! Of course, I loved it!

My heart absolutely broke as we learned Dakota's story. She was far too young to have experienced so much pain. It seemed the poor girl could never catch a break. I could feel her utter hopelessness as she broke down time and time again. Read More

This is the first time I’ve truly been disappointed in one of Siobhan Davis’ books. Sure, some of her books I’ve had some issues with, but I usually found them minor compared with all the awesome drama, conflicts and romance I got in bucketloads instead. In this case it just did not do I for me on any level.

I admit that it was kind of cool that this story played out in the same universe as inseparable and it was really nice to step into Devin and Ange’s lives again, to see them take part in this

Since my first Siobhan Davis read, she has been an author I will dive into the moment I get her next release on my Kindle. In other words, I’m a big fan. Incognito screamed out to me more than the average Siobhan Davis read, though, as rock star romances are some of my favourites. In fact, they’re probably my biggest weakness.

Unfortunately, I was moving house when this came through to my Kindle. I had wanted to dive straight into Incognito the first moment I could, yet I had to hold off until I

First of all, what a smoking hot book! Ugh, I love Siobhan Davis’s writing, it’s so angst-filled and addicting.

I think my favorite thing about Incognito was the slow-building romance between the Rockstar world’s bad boy Shawn Lucas and the small-town sweetheart Dakota. From the very start their relationship was fun and meaningful and I love how long it actually took them to be together.

I feel so lucky to have gotten an ARC of this book. It sounded so good and sadly, I'd never heard of this author, now I plan to binge read as much of her stuff as I can. This story was that good. Dakota has been through a lot in her short life and it's changed her and not really for the best, she's now trying to become her sister, just to make her family happy.

Enter Shawn, a famous pop star hiding out from a stalker that's tried to kill him and even broke into his house trying to find

When you are reading a lot of books you might have come across a plot looking like this one once or twice already. But I am pretty sure it only LOOKED like this plot - because honestly sofar I never read a story of two persons in this situation that felt so doomed from the beginning.

Imagine a typical storyline ... and than think again adding a twist and turn at every possible corner. When the f
I loved the premise, but by the end, I did not care for the characters. I did not like Dakota. She was all over the place.
I felt the story was told to me. This could have been good, but the characters and the writing did not work for me.
You may love it.
*I was a lucky fish to receive an ARC

Incognito, like all of Siobhan's books are just plain amazing. Siobhan manages to make you feel for the character and makes you grow to love them. Within the first page of Incognito, I was sucked in to Dakota's and Shawn's story.

Dakota I have got to say is one of my favorite NA heroines. She's so strong. I love how she doesn't take any BS and really grows up in the novel. There are so many demons she has to fight. I love how she is courageous in growing and

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Another great romance by Siobhan Davis, this time, in a college setting (my fave) with wonderful, emotional characters (not to mention that cover with all the gorgeous hair!), and a story that will have you swiping the pages of your Kindle all through the night. Wonderful book from a wonderful author!

Incognito is one of the better rock star romances I’ve read.

I’m usually not a fan of rock star romances because they’re almost always clichéd and full of tropes. However, Davis uses the typical rock star arc only as a backdrop for her character, thereby getting rid of almost all the annoying tropes, especially the groupies.

Davis excels at creating perfectly balanced male characters so that they have the typical alpha male characteristics without being disgustingly overbearing or domineering. Le

Trigger warning: This book deals with dark topics. I'm keeping it vague cause of spoilers but just be careful. Do not read this if you're in a bad place, like I was. I had to take a break because I was hit with these things out of nowhere and I was not in the mood for them.
Either way, my 2 star rating mostly has to do with the fact that I didn't believe the chemistry between the two main characters. I just couldn't get on board with it no matter ho

Famous since he exploded onto the music scene at age 15, he has become the puppet of his label, performing music he doesn’t even like, and he has completely lost himself. He has recovered after spiralling into a life of alcohol and women, but has now become the victim of a crazed stalker who is becoming increasingly dangerous. Desperate to escape his life for a bit,

Incognito is Siobhan's second standalone and I really enjoyed it. The blurb gives you all the information that you truly need to do know so I will do my best in not repeating any of that nor give anything crucial away. And yes, the blurb may sound similar or like another rock start romance, but it's Siobhan's twist and her writing that make this story so enjoyable.

Shawn and Dakota are both battling their own wars. Shawn is trying to stay under the radar and finally enjoy life as just a "normal"

Our past sticks with us and some would say it defines us. But it’s how we handle our past that truly define us. Dakota is one of those characters who handles tragedy by getting lost in dance. But it’s not dance that helps her overcome her heartbreak, but rather a devilish and handsome rock star. Incognito is poignant, beautiful, angsty, and suspenseful with just the right amount of music to make your heart pull for both of these characters. Siobhan is a master storyteller that draws on every emo ...more

I loved this story so much! First things first, this is a stand-alone HEA with a blend of college and rockstar romance. Please don’t pass up the opportunity to know these perfectly written characters!

*Sigh* Shawn is such a stud. I immediately fell in love with his character. Who doesn’t love a troubled rockstar? He’s hot, he’s cold, and I just can’t get enough. Dear Siobhan, please give me more more more! Haha.

Shawn Lucas is a very famous singer. Somebody is threatening him. Even his house has been broken into . Twice. So he goes undercover for a while.
He enrols to university. His plan is just to focus on his music and to stay away from girls. Not so easy when they are around him all the time.
But he meets Dakota. Gorgeous, refreshing. And sad. She looks terribly sad. Her life, as it was until not so long ago, has been shattered .

Siobhan Davis does not disappoint in this suspenseful, angsty, heartfelt love story.

Superstar rocker Shawn has had it all. Fame, money, and girls galore. Unfortunately things take a dangerous turn and his life is put in danger. In order to take time away from the spotlight for his own protection he goes into hiding with the help of a top notch security agency and his managers.

Dakota is a college student who had huge dreams of becoming a professional dancer. A family tragedy derails her plans.

Incognito was my first Siobhan Davis book and it was AMAZING!!!! As far as the fact that this was my first book by this author, I know, I know… I am questioning what rock I just crawled out from under myself! If this is what I have to look forward to, I am seriously going to need to take a month off my blog commitments and catch up in every book she’s written because I freaking LOVED Incognito.

Incognito is Siobhan Davis’s next unique, sexy, and angst-filled standalone. I just know that when I open one of her books that it will be a rollercoaster ride of emotions and suspense. I love it!

Shawn needs to get away. Away from L.A and the fake-ness that comes along with it. He may only be twenty but he was a bad boy popstar by the time he was only fifteen. The last year has been difficult and now with a stalker threatening him, it’s time to get out of there. It will give him time to focus o
This is not my first Siobhan Davis book, and I definitely hope it's not my last.

This book follows the story of Dakota, a university student with a sad back story/family situation and Shawn, a pop-star in hiding as a university student with his own troubled past and a stalker threatening his life. This story follows Dakota and Shawn's love story through mutual attraction and avoidance, undeniable affection, and just the right amount of drama.

This book contains a few of my favorite things: drama

I was lucky enough to beta read this book.

I really liked this book! I really liked both of the main characters. I really felt for both of them, as they've both been through some really tough stuff.

The things that Dakota has been through are really heartbreaking, but it is really cool to see how strong she is with dealing with it all.

I really liked seeing the character development for Shawn/Levi's character. He was really immature in the beginning, but really grew a lot throughout the story.

Thanks to the author for an ARC to read and give my honest opinion.

Dakota is at a dark place in life. Her sister is dead, her mother is suffering a mental illness, and she is giving up her dance dreams at Juilliard. She is attending college at the U of I, and taking boring accounting classes so that she can take over her dads accounting firm. Nothing is going right for her but every night at three minutes past midnight she goes to an abandoned building to dance. Three minutes past midnight is w

This is my first read of Siobhan and she knocked my socks off! Where has this author been all my life? Incognito is not just a rock star romance but a suspenseful journey where two seemingly unlikely people find that one person that completes them so thoroughly and effortlessly. That heals their soul and helps them find their wings again. Gah just utterly brilliant!
