Feminist and all around world’s greatest best friend, Lily Philips-Thomas has a rule for everything.

Rule One

No matter how many proposals you receive (seventeen to be exact) don’t ever get married. Marriage is a tool of the patriarchy.

Rule Two

Speaking of the patriarchy, don’t fall in love with an alpha a-hole rock star that believes the sun rises and sets with him. This will only lead to heartache.

Rule Three

Let’s say the alpha a-hole does break your heart. Do not ever forgive him. God could be a woman but the devil is most certainly a man.

Rule Four

Chicks before d*cks. Never let your best friend down even if it means coming face to face with the alpha a-hole who broke your heart and wants you back.




My Thoughts

Lily and Asher are quite a pair. They have an interesting history together and it’s understandable that they don’t want to be around each other. So when Lily’s best friend convinces her to join Asher’s band on tour you know you can expect fireworks to happen. Neither one of them are prepared to own up to the feelings still between them so the band decides to take drastic measures to stop the bickering; if they get some entertainment along the way then oh well! 

This was my first Charlotte West read – and let’s just say I am in love! I am so excited that this author wrote Lily’s character the way she did (and the brief glimpse we get of Addy and Daisy from book 1 & 2 are similar); the heroine of this story is a very strong female character. She is independent and assertive but also has her moments of softness and femininity; too often in today’s society are feminists painted as these harsh women but this character puts a positive spin back in the word. She is the type of character little girls will want to be like. And her relationship with Asher is different than what you typically read in a romance book; like I said I loved this book!  

This is the 3rd book in this series but i think all can be read as standalone (I started with book 3 but have book 1 and 2 on my kindle to read next!); you’ll get a hands to reconnect with characters from her previous books as well as see a different view of the interactions.  It’s not too long, but the pacing is also fast enough that it feels like a lot is happening in the book. I really enjoyed the flashbacks to show all the reasons why they interact as they do today.

About the Author


Charlotte West writes romance about strong heroines and the sexy alpha males who love them. She lives in Washington state with her husband and very large dog (think miniature pony size). She spends way too much money on books, and way too much time reading. When she’s not reading, she’s feeding her reality television addiction, eating chocolate, or traveling. She’s been known to eat her weight in Girl Scout cookies.

She has a degree in Science and a Master’s in Education, neither of which she is currently using but is still paying for. Occasionally, she moonlights as a YA author.
