My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me. 

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all…

Kassiah: Rockstar romances are my fave, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked In Bloom.

The summary for this book is pretty spot on, so I won’t repeat it for you and will instead just let you know what I liked and what didn’t work for me. I’ll start with Berkeley. Of course you know I loved him. He was surprisingly sweet and funny and hella hot. I liked Olivia, too. Their romance was swoony, and I loved the setting and felt like I could actually feel the pulse of Los Angeles.

So what didn’t work for me? The whole idea for this story was a little too far-fetched for me. I hated Olivia’s friends and felt like overall, it was just too unrealistic. I also felt like there wasn’t very much plot here. Overall, this was a fast, fun read, with characters you’ll like. Just not a whole lot else going on. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series, though.
