5 “North” Stars (you’ll understand once you read)
Last year, I found a book called The Good Samaritan by RC Boldt and it was my favorite book of the year. I loved it so much. So when I saw the same author had another book coming out, I was all over it!
Simone King is the Taylor Swift of the world – mega successful pop star with a string of bad relationships under her belt. She’s been dubbed the Ice Princess of Pop thanks to the media – despite being anything but. When her head of security gets married, she sends him on a three month honeymoon and is replaced by Kane Windham, swoon worthy southern gentleman.
Kane and Simone start off being completely professional. Kane is coming off a broken heart and Simone decides she’s done with men. Their relationship develops naturally over the course of a few months. Kane stands up for Simone to the paparazzi (to her dismay). He defends and protects her at all costs. All while falling hard.
This is a simple story of two people who meet and fall in love. They face obstacles along the way but learn to overcome. There are also some pretty awesome songs in this book as well.
I really loved both these characters. They were both so real. I was sucked into this story and instantly loved both Simone and Kane. Ms. Boldt has a way of writing characters that I just can’t get enough of.
There are so many great things about this story, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I loved it and can’t wait to read more of what Ms. Boldt has to offer in the future.
