I met Alessandra at a party. Tried to impress her. Was almost positive I was going to fail.

I think I said something along the lines of, “I’m a Goat called Fish who’s hung like a bull—but not really. I’m actually pretty average.” Smooth. I know. Try not to be jealous.

When she laughed—and I mean, really laughed—I knew she wasn’t like the other girls I’d been meeting on tour. Hell, she wasn’t even in the same stratosphere as those fangirls and gold-diggers.

At one point during the party, Alessandra said, “There’s nothing like a girl’s first love.” I knew she was talking about the first smash hit by my band, 22 Goats. Alessandra said it was the first song she’d heard by us and it “hit her like a ton of bricks.” Ironic, seeing as how I was having the same reaction from being in her presence.

I made it my mission to impress her. Give her the kiss of a lifetime that night. But since I’ve always been the dude with zero game, nothing went according to plan.

I’m not giving up, though. I’m going to win this girl over. I’m done sitting on the sidelines, watching the bad boy getting the girl. This time, the nice guy will finish first. Even if it’s the last thing he’ll do.

Smitten is an all-new standalone friends to lovers romance!

I am completely SMITTEN with Rowe's newest release 'SMITTEN'! This swoon worthy read was as sweet as it's main characters. I am a huge fan of the Rockstar' trope, and this author did an amazing job of not only giving me that, but also giving me a kick *** storyline with it.

Smitten was one of those books that just kept a smile on my face, from the beginning of this story to the very end. The main characters were not your average characters. They were so unique so quirky, and that made for a very compelling read. Their story seemed original, and I am dang sure these characters are an original. Fish and Alessandra both showcased a tremendous amount of growth throughout the entirety of Smitten. It was amazing to see them flourish on their own, but together? Staggering. The energy that they as characters provoked will keep me coming back for more. They were playful and witty, and most times unsure of themselves, but went with it any way. To be honest, I wish I could be like them, because they were just so freeing.

Rowe done a wonderful job with the development of Fish and Alessandra’s story. It was light weight. It seemed that the pages were turning on there on accord, because the story just flowed like no tomorrow. The dialogue between not only the main characters but the secondary characters as well, had me laughing on more than one occasion. There was a comfort there, that I normally don't feel when reading. The chemistry was in true form. It felt authentic and natural. It wasn't rushed, and grew flourishly.

Overall, Smitten was a wonderful book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
