BOOK SYNOPSIS

Natasha White has always been unlucky in love. The men she falls for only want one thing from her, and it isn’t commitment. When her boss and on/off fling announces his engagement to another woman, she finds herself running from her feelings for him by taking a job as a personal assistant to the legendary rock god, Alex Harbour—half a world away. Her new boss is sexy, damaged, and insatiable, but Natasha has been a fan since she was a young girl. Conflicted by her emotions, she begins a love/hate relationship with the egotistical rock star.Alex's intentions toward her are clear from the moment they meet, but Natasha isn'€™t about to run from one emotionless connection to another. She is determined to keep her distance from her childhood crush, by any means necessary. When lust begins to cloud her mind, however, she becomes hell bent on protecting her heart. What good could ever come out of falling for a rock star, anyway?

EXCERPT

“You’re pretty good at handling the media,” Alex mused once we’d taken our seats inside the cinema. “You sure know how to put them in their place. I think that was the most effortless set of interviews I’ve ever had.” 
“I have a love, hate relationship with them. I don’t mind being abrupt when they overstep their mark.” 
“That’s a little like us.” I had to giggle at that. “You look really beautiful tonight, Nat.” 
“Maybe you should keep your eyes on the stage instead of on me.” I smirked, brushing of his comment while we watched the director and main leads take the stage. I tried to collect my thoughts, but Alex Harbour had just called me beautiful. 
So many people acknowledged Alex as they wandered past us. Some stopped to congratulate him on the song for the soundtrack. I, myself, was disappointed with the song. It had a more pop feel than rock. To me, it was like he’d sold out on this track. It wasn’t the real him. 
My mouth fell open when Adam Rider came over and had a quick chat with us. He was ‘the’ Hollywood actor at the moment, and gazing up at him, I could see why. The man was almost as sexy as Alex, with his dark, almost black hair, deep chocolate eyes and sexy irish accent. He wore a tux just as well, too. 
“When are you going to take that jump into the film industry, Alex?” he asked, darting his eyes toward me. 
“That’s never going to happen, Adam. Music is my love. We’ve had this conversation before.” 
“And who is this? I don’t think we’ve been introduced.” Adam held my gaze, the same way Alex did the first time I met him. Celebrities of their caliber always had that effect on me, knocking me breathless with their beauty. It was a surreal moment to realize they were real people, not just a perfect face in a magazine or on TV. 
“I…I…I’m Natasha White,” I stuttered, taking his hand when he offered it to me. 
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Natasha,” he cooed, kissing the back of my hand. Hollywood actors…were they all this smooth? “I’m not used to seeing Alex with such a sophisticated woman.” Now I was blushing. 
“Natasha is my new personal assistant.” Alex’s tone was sharp as he shot daggers at Adam. “You better take your seat, Adam. It looks like they’re going to start.” 
“I need to find my date anyway. Good talking with you, Alex. Natasha.” Gracefully, he disappeared into the crowd in search of his seat. 
“Wow,” I gasped, holding my chest. “I just met Adam Rider.” 
“Are you a fan of his?” Alex didn’t seem that interested in my answer. He was busy playing with the arm of his chair. 
“Who isn’t a fan of his? I heard he turned down the lead role in this film we’re seeing tonight.” 
“I wouldn’t know, but I’m not sure Westerns are his thing anyway.” 
“Do you see him a lot? Are you good friends with him?” 
“Straight Lace, do you have a crush on Mr. Hollywood? I do know him pretty well. We jam together from time to time.” He couldn’t hide his smirk. “Most actors are womanizers, though, and Adam is no different. I wouldn’t get mixed up with him.” 
“I’ve heard that about rock stars, too,” I quipped. “And you definitely live up to that.” 
“Maybe you need to find a more reliable source. You really don’t know me well enough to make that judgement yet.”

MY REVIEW

I love a good rock star romance and Wilde didn't disappoint with her latest release, Wonderlust. Wonderlust is the story of ex- Steel Rose member, Alex Harbour, and his PA, Natasha.

Natasha was working for a rival music producer when she was approached for a job and although hesitant given the fact that the rock star she would be working for is not only her teenage crush, but a total jerk, Nat thinks a fresh start will be just what she needs to get over her unrequited feelings for her former boss. 

From the moment Alex and Natasha met there was something simmer between them. There is a thin line between love and hate and despite Natasha giving Alex a ton of sass along with calling him out for his bad behavior, she can't deny the rush Alex gives her. 

I really like the banter between Alex and Natasha and the give and take. The chemistry between this pair was AMAZING! Absolutely amazing! 

Beneath Alex's cocky exterior, there is a man of depth hiding deep down and I think Natasha is good for him. Wilde's descriptive nature and writing style was perfect and the book itself is well-written and fast paced. I was hooked from the very start.

I would LOVE to see more of Alex and Nat. I think they have so much more to offer.
