Summer Sky by Lisa Swallow
**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

Sky changed her life for a man once, and she has no intention of doing it again - even if he is a six-foot, tattooed rock god who makes a mean bacon sandwich.
Sky Davis is fed up of boyfriend Grant taking her for granted, and when she comes home to find him wearing a girl, Sky suspects the relationship is over. She takes an unscheduled vacation and leaves the life (and guy) she hates behind.
Rock star Dylan Morgan is struggling with fame and infamy, sick of his life being controlled by other people. Dylan cuts his hair and walks away from his role as lead singer of Blue Phoenix, leaving behind chaos and speculation.
Outside the English seaside town of Broadbeach, their cars and worlds collide.
Sky decides Dylan is an arrogant guy with too many tattoos, and Dylan is amused by the smart-mouthed girl with no idea who he is. Dylan and Sky soon discover they’ve travelled to Broadbeach for the same reason - to escape from reality and head back to a place with happy childhood memories. Losing themselves in a world where they know nothing about each other, Sky and Dylan begin a holiday romance that soon heats up their rainy English summer.
Fantasies can’t last forever, and when reality crashes the party, Sky isn’t sure she wants to be more than his ‘summer Sky’ but Dylan doesn’t want to let her go.
Returning to the real world, public scrutiny isn’t their only problem. Blue Phoenix lead guitarist, Jem Jones, has a reason for wanting Sky out of Dylan’s life, and is determined to come between them. Some things won’t stay hidden, even when they’re paid to ‘go away’.

Summer Sky is a contemporary romance with a rock star flavour where occasionally more than the bacon sizzles. It is the first in the Blue Phoenix series.

Please note: This is written in UK English and includes English idiom and spelling. 
When we meet Dylan and Sky, Sky has no idea who Dylan is, and he loves that.  I like that they got to know one another with no pretense about the fact that Dylan is a famous rock star.  And when Sky figures out who Dylan is, it actually makes her like him less, not more, which is a twist from the usual rock star romance.  I will say Sky frustrated me a few times, because she was only holding Dylan at arms length because he was a rock star.  She obviously had feelings for him, but she was scared of being sucked into his life
Dylan is a sexy, tattooed rock star, which I am a sucker for.  And he cooks bacon, what more could you ask for!!!  Dylan also has another side, and I wanted to hug him.  He is tired of all the fame and rock star life and he is hoping that Sky can help him find his way out.

This is a fun, heart felt love story that I absolutely loved.  I would give it 4.5 stars.  There is a cliffhanger, but the next book is scheduled to be released in early June.  It is currently on sale for $.99 too.
