Megan Miller is on a dream trip to research her doctoral thesis at a rock festival in England. When she arrives in town she’s stunned that her temporary neighbor is the spitting image of her 70’s rock idol, too bad he’s also a world-class jerk. So why can't she stop thinking about him?
Seventies rock star Davy Morgan is a man with a secret: rockin’ in one time and living in another. He holds his privacy close to his heart, so when a beautiful girl who not only loves but truly understands his music moves in next door, he works overtime to keep her at a distance. Easier said than done.
Megan follows Davy to the rock festival, but it’s not what or when it seems. The lure of the music draws them closer, but can their newfound love span across the decades, or will it get lost in time?

If music takes you on journeys of the heart... (5 stars)
Megan Miller grew up crushing on 70's rock star, Davy Morgan. Her interest in the rock scene of his era has lead her to England to attend a rock festival where she can do research for her doctoral thesis. No sooner does she arrive in Glastonbury than she winds up in an accidental confrontation with the sexy, but rude Davy Morgan look-alike in the cabin next door.
Legendarily reclusive rocker, Davy Morgan, has found a way to hide from the dark side of the music business by traveling to the future. When he meets his temporary new neighbor he has to be extra careful about keeping his true identity a secret. But when Megan incidentally follows him into the past a new path is laid before them, one that can be made or broken by the tests of time.
HOT ROCK is actually my first read from Annie Seaton. After hearing lots of good stuff about her contemporary romances I knew I was game for seeing what she could do with something a little more in the fantasy vein and she delivered very nicely. It probably helps that HOT ROCK blends two genres I love, rock star romances and time travel romances, if you like either you MUST pick this up. I was a little flummoxed on the actual mechanics of the time travel but if you can suspend disbelief well and dig seeing characters from different times finding love it's well worth a look.
Davy is kind of a jerk at first but not without a certain charm, he's got his reasons for being secretive and not wanting to live a rock star life. Megan is actually very likable though I'll admit I found the idea of her thesis to be really flimsy as her excuse for traveling halfway around the world and then not returning when her career was being threatened. They had great chemistry from the get-go though and I was really eager to see where it would lead them. I was not disappointed at all.
If you've ever thought it would be cool to travel back in time and see your favorite band perform at the height of their career or you love a great music festival I think you'll really enjoy HOT ROCK. I'm really hoping to see more Covet titles from Seaton in the future because, pardon the pun, this one rocked!
