BLURB from Author via Entangled Publishing

Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—deserve to party, right? Wrong. After taking a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska.

Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absent-minded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered with the new tenants next door.

Penny’s too hung up on another guy to deal with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy
sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

Mmm well the cover certainly suggests this book to be about a romantic relationship, capturing that moment as you both lean in for a first kiss perhaps? I like the cover, it has a clear and realistic quality. As always I love a byline and this one has one that says  "Shes's all that's keeping him from falling over the edge...." which in itself suggests a turbulent male character and pehaps problems for the female character keeping the male one "in line". I like the font of the title and how play is made to stand out by being in a different colour and font so emphasising Play. The authors names look great in an unobtrusive font and place on the cover. Could it be improved? Mmm maybe the title, ot authors names could have been up at the top, but then as there is a gap, it makes the cover stand out. Would I pick the book up from the shelf? Yes but more because of the author Jolene Perry than the cover if I am totally honest. as the cover could suggest a "mushy love tale" which I rarely go for.
Now to the blurb, now this makes me more interested. we have a troubled male, Bishop who is a bit of a bad boy who has a soft spot for Gramps. The blurb suggests that Bishop is a good if not great guy at heart....will Penny see the good in Bishop, will they have a relationship and will it work out? Thats what the blur makes you want to know!
So would I be interested in reading this book? Why YES of course, I have read and loved many books by Jolene Perry and Jolene Perry with other Authors too.
