Blow: A Virtuous Paradox Novel

Blow: A Virtuous Paradox Novel by Heidi McLaughlin

Blow: A Virtuous Paradox Novel by [McLaughlin, Heidi]

Meet the complicated rock stars behind the sexiest band in America! In the start of an emotionally charged series, an insatiable heartthrob gets blinded by the spotlight—and learns to fight for love.

Blow will absolutely blow you away. Scorching-hot chemistry woven into a very poignant story of addiction.”—Sawyer Bennett

Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, women. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie’s parents are Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the all-male 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. Unfazed by his rock-star persona, Kim would rather go horseback riding than fangirl over Bodhi, which is an unfamiliar—and refreshing—feeling. Kim’s the type of person he’s been looking for his entire life: someone who cares about him, not his career or his famous parents. When Bodhi falls, it’s fast and hard. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect their love from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.


4.0 out of 5 stars different premiseJanuary 3, 2017
This review is from: Blow: A Virtuous Paradox Novel (Kindle Edition)
This was an interesting perception into the rock star lifestyle as well as romance. They say don't get in a relationship in the first year of recovery, yet here we have Bodhi and Kim jumping right in, while he's still in rehab! Now, I will say, I've never seen anyone ruin their life over coke. Yes, if it turns to something harder, but it's like marijuana. People don't exactly rob banks to get it. It's cheap, easy, whatever. So, I felt that maybe we could have added something more in there, like alcohol or whatever. But, either way, we have Bodhi going to rehab, trying to fix his life, get his career back on track. Great, this is a new premise I haven't seen in a romance yet. I will say, this is not your average, happy happy romance. I like that it's dark, I like that it's dirty and screwed up. It was a fantastic read, and I honestly hope there's more in this series.
