Release Blitz Review: A Little Bit Like Desire by Brooke Blaine

A Little Bit Like Desire 
(South Haven #2)
by Brooke Blaine
Release Date: July 23, 2018
Genre: M/M Romance

What if you had everything in the world you wanted...except the man you never knew you needed?

Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Shaw sit up and take notice for long, though. But that all changes when a famous rock star walks through his door.

Trent Knox had the world in the palm of his hand as the lead singer of TBD, one of the biggest rock bands in history…until the day he walked away. A getaway to South Haven Island seems like the perfect place for Trent to find himself again and reignite his passion for music. But what he never expects is to find his muse in a six-five, tatted-up badass whose sinful smile he can’t get out of his mind.

The only problem? Trent’s a notorious womanizer, and Shaw isn’t interested in being someone’s experiment—muse or otherwise. But in a town as small as this one, Shaw is finding it more and more difficult to keep the persistent rocker at arm’s length.

As the tension between them builds, maybe it’s time to finally give in and get carried away with something a little bit like...desire.

This is simply deliciously sweet romance between tattoo artist Shaw Jennings and rockstar Trent Knox. Shaw is the tattoo shop owner and friends of previous heroes Lucas and Jackson. Shaw is in his early 30s and never plan to have a relationship. He is such a nice guy and I can't believe he never have a boyfriend ever. Trent just left his band due to artistic restriction and decided to do something on his own. He ended up at South Haven and rented a house from Bash, who is also one of Shaw's buddies.

The secretive first encounter between Shaw and Trent was mysterious and titillating. I like that when they finally figure it out, it was all smooth and natural without having the dramatic reveal. The relationship between Shaw and Trent is just so sexy and hot without angst or drama. Shaw admire Trent very much as he himself is a big fan of the band, but he didn't went all fanboy. Trent is bisexual but is not public knowledge. Now that he find himself attracted to the sexy tattoo artist, he might need to do come to terms with coming out publicly. 

I thought i will have to endure seeing Trent being in the closet and trying to figure out his feelings, so I'm glad that it isn't such a big issue to Trent. In fact, it was Shaw who is the one who wanted to protect Trent's image and worry about him. I'm just in awed of Shaw's protectiveness towards his lover. Shaw also very supportive of Trent's career. He's definitely a keeper. One of the things that I really enjoyed in this book is all the dialogues and playful banter between all the characters, not just between Shaw and Trent. I can listened to Bash, Jackson and Lucas talked all day long. I definitely looking forward to our very own diva Bash's story. I wonder what kind of man will finally capture his heart.
