Would you spend ten days traveling the country with someone you despised if he promised to pay off your student loans?

Recent college graduate, Harper Leigh, can barely make ends meet working as the books editor for a new online entertainment magazine, Chatter. With $85,000 of student loan debt about to go into repayment, she has no idea how she'll get by.

Just when she thinks things couldn't get worse, Harper's boss decides to embed her in the North American tour for the hot rock band, Always Rayne. Ten days on the road with the band for her to get an exclusive story. But Harper's a homebody and the last thing she wants to do is go on the road with a rock band. And she definitely doesn't want to spend ten days with the notorious bad boy and band front man, Nic Rayne.

When Nic proves to be too much for Harper to handle and she threatens to quit the assignment, Nic decides to sweeten the pot. If she stays with the tour for all ten days, he'll pay off all of her student loan debt....but there's one small catch.

Harper also has to sleep in his bed every night.

My Review

Always Rayne is the first book that I’ve read by Sierra Avalon, and it will not be my last! I am especially interested in continuing to follow the characters introduced in Always Rayne.

This is the story of a sweet and pretty innocent girl named Harper Leigh. Harper, is a recent college grad starting her career in reporting and journalism for an on line magazine called Chatter. She isn’t crazy outgoing or into hooking up with random guys, Harper is actually described as being a kind of hippy librarian, who prefers books to dating and not taking guys for a test drive, as her bestie Brooke describes is what she should be doing.

Little does Harper know that after attending the Always Rayne concert with Brooke, her life is about to get all kinds of exciting! Thanks to her awkward backstage encounter with the brooding and beyond sexy lead signer himself…Nic Rayne.

Nic Rayne, is the super sexy womanizing rock star/actor, who feels he may just have met his match with Harper, probably the only girl to ever turn the hottie rocker down. The moment these two connect I was totally grinning, Haper just completely dismisses him and gives him a list of all the reasons he doesn’t stand a chance with her.
I loved this scene; I could just see the sexy rock star smirking at the sweet and innocent Harper, the cogs turning in his head thinking…challenge accepted! lol

Game on!…Of course the next day harper is called into her boss’s office where she is given an ultimatum that will change her life. Either join the band Always Rayne for the last 10 days of their tour, in order to write an expose or be fired. So with her hand being tied, she accepts the offer and now the story really begins!

I loved reading about Haper as she adjusts to the crazy rock star life full of drinking, sex and more sex, and of course her trying to avoid a certain lead signer who has made it more than clear that she is most definitely on his radar.

Nic is just sooo incredibly hot and so so cocky! I really wished there had been some of his POV in the book, I would like to know what he was thinking at times. I just love stories when the guy becomes so smitten over a girl that he shows just how sweet he can actually be. Nic is no exception and trust me he will have you swooning so bad at times with the things he does and says.

 I was so engaged in Haper and Nic’s story as they find their way to each other and discover that they really are sooo perfect for one another. Of course there are issues that arise and it seems like Harper takes forever to give in, but it’s the perfect quick and dirty read, with the right amount of angst and sexiness.

I really thought the book was well written and that the chemistry between the characters was so realistic I couldn’t stop reading. I just couldn’t wait for Nic and Harper to get it on! And oh my when they finally do its HOT!

My only complaint is that I wish it had of been longer! I cannot wait to read about the other band members…I hate waiting, want them now!
