    Cultural differences

    A Review of The Rock Star's Secret Baby (Rock Stars in Disguise: Cadell) (Friends With Benefits - Billionaires in Disguise) by Blair Babylon Cultural differences - 5+++++ stars We finally get Cadell's story and it was well worth the wait. It took me a bit to determine that this story actually takes place earlier in the storyline of Killer Valentine, so we've seen parts of his story in Georgie and Xan's. Cadell found out that he had a very sick young daughter, who had been left alone when her mother passed away. When we meet Dr. Andy Kumar, she is taking care of Emily in the Hospital after her nannie left her there, since Cadell is out of the country with the band. As soon as the plane lands, he heads out to the hospital, without telling anyone where he is going or why. Xan tells him they have the studio booked and he needs to be there, but Cadell just leaves. In the short time that Cadell has had custody of his daughter, he hasn't told anyone in Killer Valentine about her at all. Everyone knows that something is going on with him and they are all afraid that he is back on drugs. But, for the last eight months, he has done everything he can to get clean and stay clean for his baby. This is a story about much more than a member of Killer Valentine and the ride that comes with being a rock star. He has formed a tight bond with his daughter's doctor and is trying to understand her culture, which does not allow her to even have coffee with him. There are a lot of twists and turns with this story and you will definitely need your tissues a couple of times. I highly recommend that you pick up this story, especially if you have read any of the other books with Georgie, Xan and Killer Valentine. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

    I want a Cadell of my own!

    This is the hardest review that I've ever done. I hope it always will be. While I am not a pint sized Olympic gymnastic wunderkind, it was far too easy to relate to Lizzy. Although, now that I'm single again, I do daydream a bit about working at the Devilhouse. I think it makes total sense, for some, to search for a way to exorcise demons visitted upon us while we were too vulnerable to make choices and defend ourselves. Working at the Devilhouse is, I think, both a form of self flagellation and a pursuit, perhaps foolishly, for a kind of soul reckoning. Lizzy seeks out a lifestyle, a type of man that echoes what her slight appearance projects. At least, at first glance. Her mantra of: "Pain is weakness leaving the body" was ingrained in her and the fellow gymnasts in her parents control. Mannix, her smoldering, sexy Master; certainly lives with pain and drugs as his daily mantra. But, thankfully, there's Theo the avenging prosecuting attorney, who truly sees her worth. And its not strictly in the bedroom. So, it's a struggle between Superman and the dominating, over steroid'd ex NFLer. Its more than a competition between good and evil. This story details the struggle and the obstacles, in fantastic detail. Is Mr Nice ( Medium Guy) just ho hum? Is it Mannix who Lizzy really needs? Who will round off her edges and make her love herself at last? I don't do spoilers. But, I have to admit that the climaxes toward the end of Lizzy's story were enough to have me grinding my teeth, whimpering and emptying the tissue box. Totally worth every second spent reading this book. And all the moments thereafter to de-compress!

    Loved it!

    I loved this book! It was a wonderful final book for this series. Cadell is such a gentle caring character, the soul of a wounded poet and a fiercely protective father. Not what you expect in a rock star character. Learning about Andy was a study of another culture, so different from my own. The author did an excellent job describing how her character was pulled between traditional and modern society. My opinion----read it-read it-read it! ARC provided for an honest review.

    Donate - support life

    What a brilliant end to the Killer Valentine series and a great book in its own right. Cadell has always been quietly in the background but here he comes to the fore as a gentle father and so respectful of Andy's lack of experience. It's great to see the way the band members watch out for their own. The themes in this novel are so profound too - plateaued, even fossilised, cultural conservatism, interracial relationships and organ donation and the effect of the lack of donors. Ms Babylon has handled these themes - especially organ donation - with great sensitivity. I hope this does what government and medical association campaigns strive to do. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the series as a whole. The final chapter says it all.

    astoundingly breathtaking and exquisite

    The Rock Star’s Secret Baby is an astoundingly breathtaking and magnificently exquisite journey that will ever so gently open your heart and allow the purest and truest form of love to reach in and transform every part. This is a love that will change a life just by its mere presence and the surprising peace that it brings. Love not only accepts with open and honest arms, but it also center us and presents a life of simplicity and overwhelming peace. Our hearts cannot live in turmoil and anxiety, so why would be choose to complicate our life and force ourselves to live in such pain? Instead, walk towards a future that will make your soul sing with its promise of unbridled joy and sigh with its temptation of perfect peace. Andy is living the life that has been carefully designed for her. She knows her place, and she does all she can to stay without her restrictive, allotted boundaries. The desires of her heart are inconsequential and do not matter in comparison to the future that has already been mapped out. No matter how much she yearns for more, she quickly pulls her disobedient heart back into its gilded cage. Cadell has none only chaos and demands his entire life. He knows what he must do, and yet his very soul is screaming out for something so very different. The chains that hold his captive are not as confining as they used to be, but can he figure out how to break them completely before more than his own future goes up in flames? Can Andy follow the pleading cries of her own heart and stop her very soul from dying before she has had a chance to spread her wings, or will she walk away from the only source of living water that her dehydrated soul needs only to please those she seeks approval from? If I thought that the stories of the other members of the band Killer Valentine were utterly mesmerizing and incredibly powerful, then Babylon definitely saved the best for last with Cadell. She has painted a masterpiece so expansive and yet stunningly detailed that to take it all in at one sitting is nearly impossible. The themes that wave themselves throughout this wonderful journey will seep into your heart until you feel the full weight of them upon your very soul. The truth and the power in the words that cover these pages will pierce every facet of your life until you find the chains that hold you captive. Andy and Cadell are a perfect and beautiful balance to the other. They not only understand the implication of their past, but they see the limitless potential of their future. The only question that remains is if they are willing to step out on faith and take hold of what they desire above all else. Blair Babylon continues to leave me utterly breatheless and completely captivated by the quite brilliance of her mind and the boundless depths of her heart. Her stories never fail to show me something new about myself, and quietly remind me that I am worth something, We are all broken and flawed in some way and yet it is those pieces that make us who we are. Regardless of what we think, we are never unredeemable or too far gone as long as we can be touched by love and hold onto hope.
