Review| Duplicity – S.M. Shade

S.M. Shade has become one of my favorite romance authors. She writes romantic comedies, but also suspenseful ones and now we get a rockstar romance, Duplicity. Thanks to the author I got an ARC of this book to read and review! Today is release day and I want to share my thoughts on this book.

The world famous lead singer of the hard rock group, Jilted, has moved into the Presidential Suite of my hotel. His reputation precedes him and none of it is positive. Considering his past exploits, drunken fights, and fondness for destroying hotel rooms, I don’t expect the next four months to be easy. For the sake of Foxhaven Resort, I’m going to make it work. Hosting an A-list celebrity will draw affluent guests and solidify the future success of the resort recently left to me by my late father.

I have enormous shoes to fill and no rude, womanizing rock god is going to distract me. With his powerful voice, gorgeous face, and lean body, he may be accustomed to getting his way, especially with women, but I know better.
So, he can flash that charming smile in another direction.


In Duplicity we meet Kinley and Holt. Kinley ended up running Foxhaven Resort a lot sooner than she expected after her father passed away. Her newest guest is Holt, the lead singer of a rock group and who doesn’t have the best reputation.

That is where Duplicity turned out to be a lot of fun. It’s clear from the start that Holt and Kinley have a connection. Kinley keeps it at bay though, because she needs her resort to come first, except Holt won’t take no for an answer.

Spending time with Holt makes Kinely realized he’s not the arrogant party boy the magazines make him out to be. It’s clear that Holt is getting tired of some of the rock star life, but he has his reasons for doing what he does. There is a softer side of him that comes out when he’s alone with Kinley.

Duplicity is filled with a lot of humor, sexy moments, some romance and some annoying paparazzi. They just won’t leave them alone. I loved the writing in this book and Kinley has some amazing friends as well. A day at the Foxhaven Resort definitely isn’t boring.

That ending left me wanting more though! I did not see the twist coming that this author threw at us!! I need the next book now!!

Duplicity is not your typical rockstar romance, but I really recommend it! Do you have any rockstar romances you would recommend?
