This book is Josh’s story and we met him in the previous book when it was decided he would take Nick’s, his dad, place in the band, Synergy.

Now he has his eye on Caitlin who runs the trendiest nightclub around. She, however, is pining for her ex-boyfriend who is missing in Somalia after going out there with a charity. All reports indicate he is dead, but she can’t move on. This means that all Josh’s charm is not going to work on woo’ing Caitlin. He’s going to have to pull out all the stops to get his girl and not just rely on being the world’s hottest rock star.

I must say that Josh comes across as very likeable. He’s not all caveman. He realises that Caitlin isn’t ready to embark on a full blown relationship and needs time to get over her ex. Her ex, whom no one knows she actually split from before he went missing! So as far as everyone is concerned, it’s her fiancé who is missing/dead.

I felt a great sadness for Caitlin. She’s obviously having a hard time keeping the amorous rock star at arm’s length. She’s gone through a great deal of emotions when her fiancé/ex went missing but she still feels disloyal to move on. It must be hard when the love of your life dies to get yourself emotional grounded enough to trust anyone enough to give your heart to. It must be like cheating on a ghost and I can only imagine the conflicting feelings Caitlin was going through.

Yet I have to say, Josh really was the good guy and although he wouldn’t give up on her, he knew when to take a step back.

Great characters, great storyline, great flow and very well written from start to finish. Not once did I want to put the book down.

I really enjoy Lexxie Couper’s style of writing.

I really enjoy Lexxie Couper’s style of writing. She writes with a lot of passion, and that is very evident when you read her books. You feel a connection to the characters and even if you haven’t been through what they have, you can empathise with them because of the depth of the writing.

I enjoyed this book and it was definitely worthy of full marks.

HASH(0x9891fcf0) out of 5 stars Josh Blackthorne! 28 Oct. 2014
By Heather A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Blackthorne is Josh’s story. We knew at the end of Getting Played that Josh would be taking his dad’s place in the band and that the band is now called Synergy. Blackthorne starts with Josh going on stage for the this first time and then jumps forward 5 years to the present.

Caitlin meets Josh when he is trying to jump the line to get into her club by claiming to be Josh Blackthorne along with his friend Rhys, a famous soccer player. Security called her up front because why one of the members of the most famous band in the world be at her club without security when the news was just reporting them somewhere else?

Josh has to prove who he is by calling her uncle, who is the one who brought Caitlin into Josh’s world (via pictures) and insisting that he look her up next time he is back in Australia.

The chemistry between these two is huge, even when Caitlin is fighting it, trying to remain true to her missing fiancé for no other reason than she feels it’s the right thing to do for her, for his family, etc.

Of course who can resist chemistry like that (and Josh Blackthorne) for long? In true Lexxie Couper form this book is H-O-T. The spicy scenes between these two are absolutely melt your panties amazing.

I honestly thought the antagonist in this book would be Josh’s stalker, because I went into Blackthorne without reading the blurb, I kind of wish there would have been some more related to that in the story. Even with wanting that, the book was incredible.

I really enjoyed it. Josh was the perfect rock star hero without the mega ego that wants everyone to bow at his feet. I think he is now my favorite member of the band.

All in all, great book! I read it in one day, completely engrossed, wanting to know what was going to come up against this couple and how they were going to deal with it. Great romance, awesome rock star story!

Thank you so much for my copy of Blackthorne!

HASH(0x990528ac) out of 5 stars Blackthorne will rock your world 28 Oct. 2014
By P. Phan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What can I say about Lexxie Couper's final book in the Heart of Fame series except, Josh Blackthorne will ROCK your world! He sure did mine since I could not stop thinking about him or this story way into the night after I had finished reading. This author is brilliant with her storytelling and her words pull me into her characters' world.

Heart of Fame series has been one of my all-time favorites ever since she created Nick Blackthorne. It seems quite fitting that this series end with his son, Josh whom we've seen in varying stages of his life throughout the series and would somehow follow in his father's rock n roll world. I love that Josh is still a sweet, caring and loving person despite his fame and it was so much fun to see him with his best friend, Rhys. Josh's encounter with Caitlin was hilarious; I really liked Caitlin who's strong, independent, sassy and vulnerable. It was great to see these two connect and start a friendship after the misunderstanding at her club. The sexual tension between Josh and Caitlin bloody well melted my screen and the sex was scorching hot, hot, hot that it left me swooning along with Caitlin. Their love story flowed quite nicely and the surprising twist was emotional and heartbreaking for all those involved and had me cursing, crying and then finally smiling. I have to say I adored Chloe and loved Josh's interaction with his baby sister and I love how close he is to his family. I also loved that Caitlin's uncle Liev appeared in this story as he was always one of my favorite heroes.

This author sure knows how to combine all the different elements to create a fabulous story. I've loved each and every one of the stories in this series and Blackthorne is special indeed as we see things come full-circle. I am happy and sad at the same time to see Josh's story and knowing that it's the last book, but it's the perfect way to end this series. Thanks Lexxie for giving me one of my favorite series that I will be re-reading over and over again.
HASH(0x98c610f0) out of 5 stars Good Reading! 4 Dec. 2014

Blackthorne is Lexxie Couper’s final Heart of Fame book, and in it we have come full circle. In book one it was Nick Blackthorne, learning he was the father of a teenage son, Josh. In Blackthorne, Josh is the music star that has far eclipsed his father, and is ready to settle down to a quieter life.

It has been five years since Josh Blackthorne became the singer for Synergy, his father’s former band. Five years of success, surpassing his every expectation. But life isn’t all fun and happiness; Josh has picked up a stalker, and that man has been released from custody. Josh decides to escape to his roots back in Australia, and stay under the radar, laying low. When he and his long time pal Rhys decide on a night out, Josh decides to try out the hottest club in town, run by bodyguard Live Reynolds’ niece, Caitlin. Caitlin has worked hard to make her club the in spot, and she isn’t about to let to celebrity pretenders try to put one over on her. After all, with no entourage, these two can’t possibly be Josh Blackthorne and Rhys McDowell, two of Australia’s most celebrated public faces. Caitlin shouldn’t feel the way she does once she spends time with Josh; after all she was engaged before her doctor fiancé shipped out to Somalia and went missing. As Caitlin and Josh spend time together, she falls for him, and Josh feels the same for her, although all their time together is purely platonic, as Caitlin hides behind her ‘engagement’ to keep Josh at arm’s length. Just when life has shown them that love is there, Caitlin’s ‘fiancé’ returns, leaving Caitlin confused and Josh shattered. Can the two star crossed lovers find their way back to each other? Can Caitlin find a way to let Matt down easy and follow her heart?

I love this world that Ms Couper has built, and the characters that inhabit it. These are people who feel like old friends, and it is fun to see characters from earlier stories and how they have fared in life.

Caitlin Reynolds is smart, determined and has made a success of the club she built on her own. She is attracted to Josh, but is also afraid to get involved after the pain and trouble of her last relationship. I like watching as she learned to love while spending platonic time with Josh, coming back to life and wanting it all. I like Caitlin’s sassy attitude and her strength of character, and the bit of snark she reserves for friends and family.

Josh Blackthorne is sexy and smart and talented. But he has never become the hedonistic rock star that his father was; his band mates and his family have kept him grounded and sensible. He has had a small crush on Caitlin since seeing a photo of her on her uncle’s shelf years before, so meeting her and feeling the attraction between them flare to life just makes it better for him. I like that Josh was willing to go slow, not rush Caitlin into something before she was ready. And I really enjoyed some to their antics as they learned about each other’s wants and needs.

There are some twists and roadblocks to Josh and Caitlin’s happy ever after, and as with the rest of the story, these twists were handled with grace and intelligence by all the characters involved. There is chemistry and passion throughout this one, and I highly recommend the entire Heart of Fame series, but Blackthorne can also be read as a standalone story. I hope that Ms Couper will revisit this world from time to time, with updates on favorite characters and their lives.

By feedmeinbooks - Published on Amazon.com

Have you ever read a book that while rooting for the main characters you also find yourself rooting against them? That is where I was with this book. All the characters are amazing and I connected with each of them, but that twist at the end? I wanted a happy ever after for all of them, but mostly for Matt. I felt he needed one even if he broke things off with Caitlin before he left for Doctors without Borders. I wanted him to have something and someone to hold when he got back and while Caitlin did try she just couldn’t let Josh go and yes that made me happy as well as sad, because lets face it Josh is amazing. More so than a normal guy. I mean come on what guy would still stay around a girl who he loves, but knows he can never have. And what guy wouldn’t give in when said girl throws herself at them? Josh was there in any way that Caitlin needed. A shoulder to cry on, someone to hold her when she cries, a friend to talk to, and then someone to love her.

I believe that I loved this book so much because of Josh. He made this book what it was. Caitlin was great. She stayed loyal to someone that she didn’t need to because she wasn’t engaged to him anymore, even if his parents and friends didn’t know. She held on to hope that her missing ex-fiancé would come home some day and things would then move forward, because no matter what she loved Matt. Loved him like you can only with your first love. And while that love was strong it was nothing like the kind that she felt for Josh.

The story plot is also well developed and written. The author kept us on this emotional rollercoaster where at times we wanted to get off while yelling for more. The twists throughout the book were awesome. I think I somehow knew earlier in the book that Matt was coming back, even when a body was found I knew he would be back, I mean how couldn’t he? We had all this passion and love built up for Matt from Caitlin that I knew we would be facing a decision she would have to make. Josh? or Matt? And I for one am glad I wasn’t the one having to make that decision. Both men are great in their own ways, and both love Caitlin.

This is one story you don’t want to pass up! So make sure you check it out!
