Love Her Madly

Love Her Madly Rock Royalty Book 2 by Christie Ridgway

Publisher: Christie Ridgway

September 2014

Pages: 224

Contemporary Romance


Rolling Stone magazine once dubbed the nine collective children of the most famous band in the world “Rock Royalty,” years ago.  All the princes and princesses are coming back to L.A.’s Laurel Canyon now that they are all grown up. They are also trying to discover if love can be found among the ruins of their childhoods that was steeped in sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.

Bing Maddox is the “bad twin”. Alexa Alessio is his brother’s BFF and Bing has wanted her for months but he has stayed away because of his jaded soul and because she is too hearts-and-family.  He has buried his guilt after a good deed turned to a dark regret.  Since then he has also had a series of forgettable flings with women that want nothing more than some fun. He gives into his urges when Alexa needs a plus one for some upcoming wedding events. As he pursues her he goes all out to get her into his bed.

Alexa Alessio was being smart and keeping herself separate from Bing who is seen-everything, done-everything and wildly sexy then somehow she is suddenly agreeing to letting Bing be her date.  She wants back-up as her cousin marries Alexa’s stolen ex but Bing has made it clear he wants her in his bed. Her common sense tells her that with Bing being commitment-phobic when he moves on her heart will be broken even if her heart is saying yes. Now she is going to have to see if she can hold him after having him.

This is proving to be a very interesting and good series.  Seeing how the different “Rock Royalty” goes about finding their happy ever afters when they never thought they could have one let alone would even want one makes for some great reading. The characters are engaging and seeing them overcome their pasts to find the happiness they have a chance at pulls the reader in and will have readers hoping each one of the Rock Royalty finds lasting happiness.  While the first two books can be read as stand alones the stories are much better if they are read in order.

I give this one 4 red roses
