Blow by Heidi McLaughlin ~ New Release & Review

Meet the complicated men behind the sexiest boy band in America! In Blow, the start of an emotionally charged series from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, an insatiable heartthrob gets blinded by the spotlight—and learns to fight for love.

 Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.

 When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn’t expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he’s enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn’t fazed by his stardom. She’d rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he’s fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.

3.5 Stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author

In Blow, we meet the boys of Virtuous Paradox, especially Bhodi. He's at the lowest of low points at the beginning of this rockstar romance and we see his journey to list himself back up.

I enjoyed both Bhodi and Kimberly, his love interest, they were both well written characters that had a lot going on. A relationship that started under less than ideal circumstances flourished and they were fun to watch together.

The secondary cast had moments that I enjoyed, but I felt like they were just brushed in and not as developed as some of them needed to be.

As much as I enjoyed Blow and am looking forward to the next Virtuous Paradox book, there were several places that I felt could have easily been more developed. In some places it was characters or conflict, but I really did want more.
