Harley - Michelle Jo Quinn (Book Review)


Title: Harley
Author: Michelle Jo Quinn 

Published by: Limitless Publishing
Publication date: January 19th 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance




Harley is a eight year old girl, mature for her age, thanks to the problems between her parents and her own health problems.

Harley's father, Jax is a rock star, who's lived the life of a celebrity to the tee, and is now looking to mend his ways.

Cade works in a security firm, waiting for her first big assignment, and also bidding time till she can question the man whom she suspects to be her biological father.

As a plot, it is interesting, and it reads as a decent story.
It does manage to hold the attention.

The characters, though, have not been developed and introduced fittingly. A lot about them is told, rather than shown through their interactions and behaviour.

More than the attraction between the lead couple, it is Harley's emotions that touched me. 
I would have loved if the attraction had been given more time to develop.

Harley is a good one-time read, mainly for the character of Harley, the sweet eight year old who deserves a chance at normal, loving family.

About the book

All of her life, Cadence “Cade” Williams has been lied to…
With her ailing father on his deathbed, a whispered secret sends Cadence’s life into a tailspin. Determined to either confirm or debunk her father’s claim, she sets out on a mission to grow close to the only man with evidence to set things straight. To do that, Cadence earns a position in an elite security firm owned by her father’s old army buddy, Noah “Mac” Mackinley.
Mac is the only man who could hold the evidence to support her father’s claims…
But first, she must prove herself worthy of Mac’s trust and get close enough to find the truth. Her first mission is to watch over an eight-year old girl, Harley Clark.
Harley is not an ordinary girl. She’s the daughter of a rock star…
Despite her fragile appearance, Harley has tenacity and brilliance like nothing Cade has ever seen. To everyone’s surprise—including her own—Cade forms an unlikely friendship with the beautiful wallflower.
Her first assignment just became more interesting…
When Harley’s rock star father, Jax Clark, enters the scene, Cade can’t deny the instant attraction for the self-proclaimed bad boy. Tattoos, piercing eyes, and a raspy voice that sends thousands of fans into a screaming frenzy, he’s more than just a heartthrob. Worse, Jax starts to pay her more attention than she expects.
She’s faced with a choice—get lured in by the celebrity world and lose any chance of finding out the truth, or stick to the plan and avoid Jax at all costs to earn Mac’s trust.
