Manic Pixie Dream Boy (The Underdogs #1) by K.A. Merikan








Blurb


---. You can’t hide the cracks under the spotlight .---Dusk. Leader of The Underdogs. Destined for greatness. Lives in the now.
Abe. AKA Lolly. Iridescent. Unicorn.

All Dusk wants out of life is for his band to become world famous. He also wants to have a lot of fun along the way. And to get his rocks off. When he wants something, he goes for it, consequences be damned.

So when he sees a gorgeous pink-haired guy who is the human equivalent of tattooed cotton candy, he can’t help but have a taste. But it’s when Lolly ends up on their tour bus that Dusk knows their meeting was destiny.

Abe is the kind of guy who goes with the flow. He was hitchhiking anyway, so why not spend the week with a hot piece of rocker beefcake, getting smothered by his sexy long hair? And why not play the part of the supportive cutie while he’s at it? It’s not like he’d be sticking around for long anyway.

All plans hit a wall when photos of Abe and Dusk emerge online, suddenly pushing the band into the spotlight. To take advantage of the sudden popularity, the band offers Abe money for staying.

Which means money for being in a fake relationship with Dusk.

Which isn’t even fake.

Or is it?

Review 
My Rating - 5 Stars!

KA Merikan's Manic Pixie Dream Boy is a fantastic rocker romance. 

I was immediately sucked into the zany world of the Underdogs, and loved the intense, immediate attraction between Dusk and Lolly. It was hot and funny at the same time. 

As well, I enjoyed the funny way that Lolly suddenly found himself traveling with the band. 

The transformation of these men is well developed and perfectly executed. Their attraction for each other, which leads to a strong bond, ends with both men changing in ways they never anticipated. They definitely have some issue to deal with when the lines get blurred, but it's a great read. 

It's fun to follow the band and get to know the members a little. As for the heat factor in this one, let's just say it's hot! Hot from the first meeting and throughout the story.

Both men are super fun to get to know. Dusk is impulsive, and crazy, yet super overprotective of his younger brother. And Lolly is a breathe of fresh air. He's a wonderfully sassy and femme man who I fell for right away.

I already know I love Manic Pixie Dream Boy, as well as Book3 You. Forever. Always., so I highly suggest this series. Now, I'm off to read Book 2, Just Here For The Pain.
