A practical joking rock star. A cash-strapped jewelry designer. Can the prankster get serious enough to turn a one-night stand into lasting love?
After the breakup of Kings Quarters, Oliver Eastland joins a new band on tour where he’ll do much of the same: make music and perpetrate practical jokes on his new bandmates. Despite the perks of band life, he’s eager to make an enduring romantic connection.
Rowan Edwards is an aspiring jewelry designer slogging away her days as an assistant photo editor while enduring the sexual harassment of her lecherous boss. Under a mountain of college debt, she can’t yet afford to leave her job and pursue her artistic dreams.
But when Oliver and Rowan hook up for an epic one-night stand, can Oliver prove he’s no joke and their love is meant to last?

Trigger warning: Workplace sexual harassment
This is the third book in the series and the book I was waiting for because I was really interested to know if Oliver would stop with his nonsense and who would catch his attention.
And I also knew the narrators would be Connor Crais (My favorite) and Stella Hunter.
I know Connor from many audiobooks, and I actually never listened to an audiobook with the narrator Stella Hunter.
So, first of all – great narrators choice! Connor, as always, did an excellent job in the role of Oliver.
I really liked Stella. She had softness and stability in her tone, and her voice blended superbly with Conor.
The book itself was simply fantastic—a light, fun, and sexy book.
I loved that the writer knew how to add a serious and deep layer to all the lightness.
I loved that the female character was strong and also realistic (even if I was annoyed at some point because she kept quiet – I know it’s not easy to stand up against something like this), and I loved that Oliver was so sweet and swoon-worthy. And he kicked ass at the end! It was perfect!
I was very worried about the conflict between Oliver and Rowan (as there is in almost every book) because the story went so well, and Oliver and Rowan’s connection was so beautiful and unique that I was afraid that the conflict would be unnecessary or unfit.
But I was pleasantly surprised that the author brought us a story that starts light, continues light and sexy, and ends perfectly.
It really was a great end to the series.
This book was exactly what I needed, and I enjoyed every moment.
