REVIEW TOUR: Idol by Kristen Callihan

Idol 0 days rectangle     Idol VIP
I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?

As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.
The world is clamouring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.


“You know,” I say conversationally, as I kick back, “I want to fuck you right now.”
Libby jerks as if pinched and sits a little straighter, before getting a hold of herself and slouching as if she’s completely chill. Cute.
She gives me a smirk and sips her water before drawling, “And what? Mark your territory? Assert your manly dominance?”
“Yep.” I slide my gaze to hers. “But mostly I just want to fuck you all the time.”
God, I love the way her lips part and body flushes with heat. So subtle, but there all the same. It makes me hard as steel, my balls squeezing tight. I don’t look at her but pretend I’m observing the room. The lights are dimming for the movie now, the empty chairs in front of us obscuring our lower halves.
Slowly my hand falls to space between us and smooths along her hip. She delicately shivers as my fingers trace down her thigh.
“What about you,” I murmur, lightly toying with her skirt in the darkening room. “You want to fuck me, baby doll?”
“Right now, I want to kick you,” she gets out between clenched teeth. “Keep your hands to yourself. There are nosy ass people everywhere.”
“They’re all watching the movie. Not us.” Focusing on the screen, I keep my expression neutral as I ease my hand under her skirt. Her skin is smooth and warm. The movie starts in a blast of music and the familiar old logo as I trace over her knee and up her soft thigh. “And that wasn’t a ‘no.’”
She makes a cute growl in the back of her throat, but her legs part just enough to give me room to delve between them. Her inner thighs are hot and damp, and my cock twitches.
The storyline rolls along, my touch idly roams. Libby remains utterly still but I can practically feel the tension vibrating within her. When the tip of my finger skims the crease where her thigh meets her hip, her breath catches, legs parting wider.
“Have I mentioned how much I appreciated this new skirt-filled wardrobe?” I whisper, lightly drawing circles along her skin.
“Brenna’s idea.” Her hips shift just a bit, following my touch. “Right now, I’m missing my shorts.”
I smile, my eyes on the screen, my fingers drifting to the edge of her panties. “Later, you can put them on and we’ll play ‘Fuck the Farmer’s Daughter.’”
She grunts, a stifled laugh, which turns to a strangled whimper when I pluck her panties. Her voice turns breathy. “I’m trying to watch the damn movie. I’m not interested in fooling around.” She moves a tiny fraction, nudging against my finger.
In the dark, I grin, heat and lust pulling my abs tight. “I’m sorry,” I say, not sorry at all, “But I don’t believe you. I’m gonna have to check.”

Sonja's Review

I absolutely loved Kristen Callihan's Soulbound, so when the chance came along to read Idol, I jumped on it! And I can't tell you how glad I am that I did because this was just such an amazing book. I wholeheartedly loved it and I can't wait to read not only the rest of her historical paranormal series but her other contemporary books as well! 

Killian might be the actual rock star, but Libby was a total rock star to me too! She is fabulous and I loooooved her! I loved her attitude, her personality, the way she could be all surly and grumpy and a ballbuster, but in a good, fun way. I just got such a kick of being in her head and watching all the things she did and the things she said. Libby is wonderful and I'm going to miss her! 

I probably won't miss Libby half as much as I'm going to miss Killian though! That man had me from the very beginning and he only pulled me in deeper the more I read. Killian is funny and teasing and sweet and thoughtful and he has such a big heart. I kind of wanted to shake him a few times because of that big heart, but even if I tried I couldn't really be or stay mad him - he just made my heart ache and melt for him. Killian is just the best and I know he'll steal your heart too! 

I cannot tell you much I loved and enjoyed reading Idol! I had so much fun reading this book and I truly never wanted to stop. It made me laugh a lot, it made me smile and grin, and was just a joy to read. It will still tug on your heartstrings, but it's a light, fun, sexy, beautiful story that every romance lover should read even if they're not too crazy about the Rock Star romances because it's so good and it will make you fall in love with the characters and the book. It was the best start to a new series and I absolutely, positively CANNOT wait for the next book! 

Idol is the first book in the VIP series, it's told from Killian and Libby's POV, and they do get their happily-ever-after ending!
