Grady

Gretchen Rily
Free sample

Thousands of people scream Grady Baker’s name every night, but Evie Pearson won’t even look at him.

Building a rock and roll empire isn’t easy, but Bourbon Suicide is doing it with every sold-out concert, platinum album, and smart business decision. The son of an eighties rock band singer and a video vixen, Grady knows how to play the part, if he can just avoid the burnout.

Combine chemicals, detonate, get a beautiful effect…or burned to the bone.

While Grady was skateboarding naked, Evie was putting herself through a technical theater program by working at a fireworks company. A woman in a man’s world, she can handle the pyro and out-swear the other roadies, but one misstep can have her doing corporate picnics. A rock tour is unlike any office on earth, but sex with the client is still a bad idea.

The arrogant rock star persona hides a man who wants to take care of the people he loves. He shows that side far less often than he does his back dimples, but once Evie sees it, enemies quickly become friends, then lovers. As she gets further and further into their world, Evie finds a family she never expected.

Grady, the man, would do anything to keep his fire woman. Grady Baker, rock star, could cost Evie her career. And their empire.

This is a standalone in the Must Love Rock Stars series.

About the author

Gretchen Rily is a happy hermit who is eternally grateful her friends let her text instead of call and don’t mind when she disappears into the writing cave for weeks on end. She has too many book hangovers, listens to 80s/90s rock music way too loud and eats way too much guacamole.

I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be... and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska. 


Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch. 


He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.


All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over. 


It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world… 


And yet somehow she’s interested in me?
