A while ago I read “The Good Samaritan” by R.C. Boldt and I loved the story and the writing style so when I came across the Plot of “Too Good at Goodbyes” I knew I had to read the book.

For me the plot style was a little unusual because when it comes to “star” novels I usually prefer the male lead to be the famous one. So this was the only thing I was uncertain of when I went into the book. But to my amazement I loved it. Probably because the author did such a fine job to make the female lead su

I’ll be honest, because that’s what I like to do with reviews.... I’m not a fan of rockstar romances. I don’t know why, but I don’t go out of my way to read them. That being said, I’m going to have to start taking that chance more often. That or Ms. Boldt is that dang good!! Because once I started, I couldn’t stop. My heart was one hundred percent invested in Kane and Simone’s story. And it was a journey for sure! But I loved it with my whole heart. I have to tell you, my love for Simone man. Sh ...more

Fact or Fiction: Sweet Read

Too Good at Goodbyes by RC Boldt was such a pleasant surprise. With a twist on the rock star romance and written in an interesting format, it’s sweet with a bit of steam.

Simone King, the Ice Princess of Pop, and Kane Windham, ex-military and her current temporary bodyguard, have similar heartaches and walls. Gentle and with a protective demeanor, Kane was all alpha. Simone my have even called icy but she certainly was not. Both Kane and Simone have hearts
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
Simone - the "Ice Princess of Pop - should be on top of the world, more money than you could ever spend, mega super stardom and every song written goes to the top of the charts. But with the good comes the bad - paparazzi that never leave you alone, derogatory names and a huge sense of isolation. Everything in her career has been one step forward and two steps back, but when Kane becomes her fill in bodyguard while on tour, does she finally find someone she can depend on. But when the relationsh ...more

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of this author writing, but this book? It blew me away. I was so invested in these characters that once I started, I couldn't stop until I got to their end. And what an ending that was.❤❤

I happen to LOVE rockstar romances, but what I really enjoyed about this one was how real Simone was. Due to many heartbreaks in her life, she only keeps company with those she really trusts, which in turn is a select few people. She doesn't party, she's not promiscu

" Fact or Fiction"

I have so many feelings coursing through me because good golly, Too Good At Goodbyes is a one of a kind book done with perfection. My hands are giddy, wanting to type so much, but at the same time my mind is trying to just process, so please just bare with me.

This author could have went so many different ways with the title alone, so I wasn't really sure where Simone and Kane's story was going to go, but I am without a doubt satisfied. Overall the premi

It’s official, RC Boldt is my unicorn author. Seriously, her writing is genius. All. The. Feels, people.

Kane is a little bit different than any other hero I’ve ever read. He’s goes through a bad break up, but he doesn’t tuck all the emotions away. He feels them, and they suck. He’s definitely more visibly vulnerable. I loved this about him. He still has that alpha thing going, but he k

Too Good at Goodbyes by RC Boldt
“The Pop Princess and the Bodyguard, 5 stars”

I have read Boldt in the past and have always enjoyed her stories so when Too Good at Goodbyes came to my attention, I knew I had to read it. I like band books, I like bodyguards, I like her, so I was game. Well let’s just say Boldt killed it with Too Good at Goodbyes. Simone and Kane are perfect for each other and at the same time they are that couple you look at and scream couple goals. She needs som

As a superstar, who do you trust? Friends, lovers, employees, everyone in your life might be using you.

R.C. Boldt brought a beautiful story to life in Too Good at Goodbyes. An intimate look at a rockstars life and a man who was broken by love. This is no ordinary tale of love, this is one that is sensitized by living under a microscope and two hearts learning to love again.

Everyone lives under the impression that famous people live glamourous lives. I'd say the answer to

3.5 Stars-Ripped from the Headlines

RC Boldt gives her fans a knight in shining armor story ripped right from the headlines, pop princess that looks like she's got it all, however feels completely alone.

Simone is world famous, peaking at an early age and finding out that tends to come with quite a bit of heartache. She seems to always choose men that don't want her for her, but for what she can bring them. I wasn't a huge fan of Simone and her whiny ways. She tried to be a

I’m a huge fan of RC Boldt and once again, she delivered another impressive and amazing book. Too Good At Goodbyes is a unique take on a celebrity and bodyguard romance. I loved everything about this book and truly adored Kane and Simone. They were engaging and genuine characters who wholeheartedly stole my heart. I could feel the undeniable chemistry between Kane and Simone and from the very beginning, I knew something life altering was on the horizon. Unfortunately, Simone has being taken adva ...more

This book is another stunning read by R. C. Boldt. I stayed up late reading, woke up early to continue and then accidentally left my kids in an extended time out while I snuck in a couple of chapters. The book was very difficult to put down.

I loved the storyline and the characters. It was all so written with layers that just kept adding more emotion, humor, steaminess and enjoyment as the book continued. This is one of those books that you are really sad that it's over but you are no

Fact or fiction:
I'm an Ice Princess of Pop fan.


RC Boldt may have had an extra ace in her hand with the subject of book. I am a total Ice Princess fan. What's not to love about Simone King!?! Okay, so the paparazzi side is ruthless. The gossip is soul crushing. The rumors would turn anyone else into a hermit. Yeah, so it's not all fun and games being the Ice Princess of Pop.

Too Good at Goodbyes is a story that I hope the inspiration for the Ice Princess one day

I loved this one! I am usually so not into musician type stories, but these characters blew me away.
Once I started reading this one I did not want to stop.
Simone comes across as you're spoiled little rich musician, but Kane is there front row and center to see there is some much more to her than singing and acting. She's not a just a pretty face and money. She cares about more than just herself. She needs a new bodyguard temporarily and Kane is called in. Kane is coming back to the land o

R C Boldt has taken our emotions on a roller coaster ride with this story.

Every angsty and emotional chapter will deliver a story you’ll absolutely love.

Simone has been riding the highs and lows of her rockstar career but for every high,there’s always a rock bottom low that breaks her soul a little more.

Kane, her bodyguard, might be the only man to stand by her but her reality isn’t always that shiny Grammy or the love of her life. It’s mo

Fact or fiction; this book deserves more than 5 stars? FACT ALWAYS AND FOREVER FACT!

Simone and Kane’s story is full of real life angst that accompanies the heartache of love! I loved how real and raw the situations were in this story and how open each character was! Was there some painful moments yes but life isn’t always perfect it’s messy and full of ups and downs! Boldt did amazing at writing a love story that felt so “real”!

Great characters all around and the humor oh goodness I loved how

Yay for Simone and Kane!! This is a story of two people who have burned by love one two many times and both are determined to commit their lives with no strings attached...famous last words..

What started as fun and way quickly turns to having to many strings they can’t be untangled but love makes people stupid sometimes and they are a little slow on the uptake so watching it happen to these characters was awesome!

I really enjoyed this slow burn but super intense romance.

wowsers what a book. Your going to be in for a heck of a ride when you read this. The chemistry that the characters have is unreal.

Now I admit it took me a bit to get going with the story but once I was I was hooked. I love how the author incorporates both texting, magazines type articles and web stuff for the characters it makes you feel apart of their world. I can't wait to see what comes next
