Shy's Review ~ Rock Star, Confined by S.M. Shade

Rock Star, ConfinedRock Star, Confined by S.M. Shade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first romance story that is set in pandemic times. I knew there would be books like that and I'll admit I was nervous about how it would come across for a romance novel. But I'm at least happy to say that it was well done and by an author that I really enjoy.

I actually like the way that she captured some of the insecurities and fears that some people have in dealing with the way things are now. She even showed some of the minor, not terrifying aspects like lounging about all day and having a chance to binge watch TV. And at the same time she wrote this really good, romantic story.

I found myself really liking both main characters even as I wondered what secrets the leading lady, Genna, was hiding. I did feel like the leading man, Patrick, was much more open and I connected with him faster but overall I really like the way that the relationship seemed to have built up organically despite what was happening around them. At no point did I feel like this couldn't have happened if it weren't for the pandemic and I liked that I got that vibe while reading.

While this book can easily be read as a standalone from other books S.M. Shade has written, there are some characters I recognize from her previous work. That's always something I like when reading multiple books by one author.

Overall I just found myself really enjoying this story and would recommend it.
