ROCK YOU ALL NIGHT LONG
The first time he lays eyes on Taylor Ross in a bar, Colt Priestley does something few men would dare to do. He approaches the world-famous singer, shamelessly flirts with her, and gives her a night in his bed that neither of them will soon forget.
When Taylor's record label hires a bodyguard to keep tabs on the out-of-control rocker, she's less than thrilled to find it's her off-the-charts one-night stand who shows up for the job. She's terrified of letting herself fall for the damaged ex-Army Ranger, and she's determined to push him away. Yet every moment they're together simmers with tension. As the danger from an obsessed stalker mounts, Taylor and Colt are tempted to cross that line again-baring their hearts and souls as well as their bodies-and there's no telling how hot this song will get.
This is my first book by Wyatt and I'm happy to say it won't be last! It was sexy, funny and a page turner from the moment I started it. I didn't want to stop reading it and I was so glad I decided to read it on the weekend.
Since I didn't read the first book in the series I was very glad that I wasn't lost with the characters. I'm glad I met the characters in this book first though because it made sure to mark want to read for the first book especially if it's anything like this one.
Colt was fired for a mistake he made at the previous bodyguard service that he worked for. Now he's been doing independent contracts. Colt heads to the bar one night looking to get drunk, in a fight or loose himself in a one night stand but he never thought his one night stand would be with Taylor. Now that's he's had her he never wants to let her go but to convince Taylor well that's another story.
Taylor fell in love then basically made some really bad public decisions. Her new album is difficult to write and honestly it's not getting easier. After the night she spends with Colt she finds out her record label wants to hire her a bodyguard to help her get the job done so she has two choices.. Go along with the bodyguard thing or be dropped. When Taylor agrees and sees one of her bodyguards is in fact Colt she will do whatever it takes to stay away from him but in the end it might not be enough.
This story had some really funny parts. Colt and Taylor embark on this prank war and OMG it's flat out the funniest thing I have read in a long time. Wyatt used her imagination when coming up with these. I was honestly laughing so hard my stomach was hurting and tears were streaming down my cheeks. The only part I didn't like is when it stopped I mean I understand there relationship was growing but man did I miss those prank moments.
These two characters were great together and I really loved the spark they had. Colt comes off a little cocky but wow this man was sweet, hot, and the way he spoke yum! Taylor was not a diva thank god, but I love how she brought up her past and where she came from. Both these two characters didn't have the best of pasts so I really did love the bonding over those talks.
Sometimes suspense romances have either too much action/ suspense or not enough, with this story I felt it was just enough. It wasn't also back to back which was a strong point for me I loved the breathing room and the twist in the danger Wyatt included.
I can honestly say I highly recommend this book and I can't wait for more. This is definitely a series I want to explore more of not only for the characters but for the different storylines that are bound to come up in future books.

From his little table in the corner, Ronnie adjusted his glasses as he watched Taylor walk out of the bar, herfingers laced with those of the brute who’d intruded onthem earlier. He finished the rest of his Coke and slammedthe empty glass down. Possessive anger coupled with analmost blind- ing jealousy churned through him. It’d beenhard to watch that interaction, and now she was leavingwith him? He’d been much happier watching her whileshe’d been alone, even if she’d looked sad.
He knew he shouldn’t have gone over and talked toher, but he couldn’t help himself. He’d been warned, but noone knew what they were talking about. They didn’t see.They couldn’t see. He loved her, and she loved him. Soon,every- one would know, and everyone who’d called himcrazy and obsessed and delusional would fucking see.
Ever since he’d first heard her sing, he’d known hewas listening to the future mother of his children.
He dropped a five on the table and pushed his way out of the bar, getting in his car just in time to follow Taylor.He had to. He couldn’t let her go off alone with that brute,un- protected. And if she was going to betray him, heneeded to know. He needed to see.
Because Taylor was his. Every part of her. Hergorgeous blond hair, those huge, blue eyes, the long, leanbody. The incredible voice. The skilled hands. Her mind.Her soul. Her body.
She belonged to him.
