About A Cruel Kind of Beautiful:
If you can’t get to the Big O, can you get to the happily ever after?
Jera McKnight loves music, swoons for hot guys, but sucks at sex. Jacob Tate is her perfect storm: a pun-loving nude model with a heart as big as his record collection.
When a newspaper-delivery accident lands him in her living room, he’s almost tempting enough to make her forget she’s never been able to please a man—in bed or out of it. Sure, he laughs at her obscure jokes, and he’ll even accept a PG-rating if it means he gets time with her, but he’s also hiding something. And it has everything to do with the off-limits room in his apartment.
Jera pours all her confusion and longing into her drum kit, which pays off when her band lands the record deal of their dreams. Except just like Jacob, it might be too good to come without a catch.
She doesn’t know if her music is good enough to attract a better contract, or if she’s enough to tempt a man like Jacob to give up his secrets, even if they could fix her problems between the sheets. But if this rocker girl is too afraid to bet on herself, she might just end up playing to an empty house.
Grab the first book in this addictive new series if you love snarky heroines, the backstage scoop about mouthwatering rock stars on the rise, and Kindle-melting sex scenes. Perfect for fans of the ragtag band families in Kylie Scott and Crystal Caswell’s books.

My Review

4 Stars!

I saw the blurb for this book and was intrigued. I was expecting one thing and something else entirely and it was really great!

This is a sexy, smart new adult romance, the first in a trilogy. The book features Jera, the drummer in an up and coming band. She loves her bandmates, but she lives in a bit of a self-imposed isolation outside her bandmates. She has a less than stellar history with guys. She is funny, kind, quirky and vulnerable. I loved her snark and sass. Jacob was riding high on a baketball scholarship until something with his family changes things. He cuts back on school, works multiple jobs and takes his responsiblities seriously. Jacob is sexy, sweet and seems to roll the punches life has thrown at him. They meet an they become friends quickly. He hints at wanting more, but she keeps him at arms length for fear of getting hurt.

This was one of the smartest new adult romances I’ve read in a while. It was thoughtful and smartly-written. Hazen incorporated a nice mix of humor to balance the heaviness and the romance between Jacob and Jera was really great. I enjoyed Jera’s bandmates, as well. I can’t wait to read more of this series.
