Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Play Nice by L.P. Maxa

Rock a stadium. Bang a chick. Repeat. As lead singer of The Devil’s Share, Dash Conner could get anything or anyone he wanted—until he met Lexi Grant.


For Dash Conner, lead singer of The Devil’s Share, everything he wanted was his for the asking. Whiskey. Drugs. Money. Sex. But not Lexi Grant. For the first time since he picked up a guitar, a girl was actually demanding he woo her. For a chance with her, Dash would do that and more.

Lexi Grant was no groupie. Just because the biggest rock star in the world smiled at her didn’t mean she had to fall into bed with him—but it was going to be awfully hard to resist that impish smile and those tatted abs. Surely one night of fun wouldn’t hurt anyone.

Unless that night ends with a broken condom.

For Lexi and Dash, that’s just the beginning. Add an overly affectionate pit bull, a missing guitarist, a house full of sorority girls, a junkie ex-bandmate and an extreme aversion to J├Ąger, and it’s either a recipe for disaster or true love.

Amy elbowed me in the ribs, “Uh, Lex? Dash is staring at you.”

In order to keep myself from ogling him, I’d taken up counting the number of topless women in the crowd. FYI: I got to twenty without even having to search that hard. I looked back in Dash’s direction. Yep, he was staring. I smiled. I couldn’t help it. He smiled back. His smile was one of those panty-dropping megawatt smiles—the kind that makes you feel like you are the only person in the world that could elicit that particular smile, even though you know logically many a girl have been lured in with it.

Dash kept his eyes on mine, but spoke into his microphone. “Uh, guys? There is a sexy brunette standing over here to my right. Does she belong to one of y’all? Please tell me she doesn’t.” He winked at me again. Amy had a death grip on my arm.

Luke stood up and peered over his drums trying to see into the shadows to where we were standing. “Is she standing next to a blonde chick with big blue eyes that’s drooling even though she’s clearly wearing a wedding ring?” The crowd laughed and so did Amy.

Dash chuckled, “As a matter of fact, yes she is.”

Luke nodded and sat back down. “That’s my friend Lexi.”

Dash’s smile grew. “Well isn’t that just the best thing I’ve heard all night. So, Lexi…are you enjoying the show?”

I couldn’t help but laugh at this situation. A rock god was flirting with me over the sound system in a sold-out stadium. I nodded my head yes.

“Good. Can I get you anything? This is officially our first date by the way.”

I bit down on my lip, contemplating how to play this. I could laugh him off and say no…or…I could have the time of my life with a rock star. I tipped my hand back towards my mouth, indicating I wanted a drink.

“Could someone please get my girl a drink?” Dash turned back towards the crowd. “Sorry about that folks but I’ve been staring at her since the show started.” He led into the next song; the crowd sang every word right along with him.

Some guy walked over and handed each of us a beer. Amy turned to me. “Holy shit, Lex. You have to do him. You have to. On behalf of every married woman out there, you have to sleep with Dash Conner.”

“On behalf of every married woman, Ams? Or on behalf of you?” I took a long pull of my beer. Amy married her college sweetheart and even though she was in fact drooling, they were deliriously happy together.

“Come on, Lexi. One night with a sexy rock god. Who turns that down?”

“I do. I’m too old for one night stands, rock god or not.”

Play Nice is the first book in The Devil's Share series. I would give this book a 5 stars! This book will have you laughing out loud and wanting to jump on a tour bus with a rock band so you can experience the craziness of living with hot rock stars! I love rock star books and this one didn't disappoint at all.

Dash oh Dash what I would do to that man! Lexi holds her own in this book as well, I love a book with a strong heroine not just the male roles. Oh and god I really hope the other band members get there own books because wow they all cracked me up but made me swoon too!

Was starts out as a little fun will take a turn into and epic romance, but with one mistake will it all crumble around them? Or can Dash fix the mistake they have made in time?

Gah this book was just so much fun and sexy and all around fantastic read that I seriously haven't felt this way about a book in a long time. This is the first book I have read by L.P. Maxa but it certainly won't be the last! I can't wait for the next book in this series Play Fair Smith's story--eeeekkk can't wait !!!!!

I LOVED this book!

There was a perfect amount of sexy balanced with sarcastic humor. Chapter 13 is all I'm gonna say. I haven't laughed that hard in a while.

Lexi's best friend's little brother, Luke, has hit big time as a drummer for a well established, popular band, The Devil's Share.They are there to watch the show and bask in Luke's success.

Dash, the lead singer of the band wants Lexi. Lexi refuses to be a groupie statistic, making Dash woo her. Dash is determined to woo her and then some. A fun night that ends with a broken condom leaves them in quite a predicament.

The sarcasm, sexiness, and camaraderie between all of the band mates (Dash, Jacks, Luke, Dylan) is great! Throw in Chase and Daggers (Lexi's dog) and you don't know what you'll get.

It doesn't end on a cliff hanger, per se, but it certainly leaves you wanting more of their story as well as everyone else's in the band.

Seriously once I picked this book I was remiss to put it back down. Go one-click it now!


Play Nice is the first book in the Devil's Share Series by L.P. Maxa and I already cannot wait for the next one. If you love a sexy as sin rocker story then this is the book for you! This book had it all, a feisty leading female, the typical man whore lead singer, and the members of the band who are more like a family than friends. You will definitely laugh while reading this book and probably want to find a hottie rockstar of your own after finishing this book because I know that I sure did! This book was a 3.5 star read for me and I cannot wait to read Smith's story next!!! L.P. Maxa give it to us soon!!!!!

Devil's Share is one of the hottest bands around, and Lexi Grant has been friends with their newest member Luke for what seems like forever. Seeing the band up close and personal is something she never imagined doing, and touring with them was something that definitely wasn't on her radar. When sex on a stick Dash asks her to tour with the band to take pictures for their upcoming album, how can she possibly say no to a guy that makes every girls panties wet with need, just with the sound of his voice, let alone his chiseled body.

This book was a lot of fun, and it had me smiling and laughing while reading it; almost making it like I was friends with the character's; something I absolutely loved!! It's when things get steamy, hot and a little heavy that everything can almost fall apart, especially for Dash and more so for Lexi. Can Dash shed the manwhore image that the world has of him? Can Lexi believe that he can and actually do it? You need to put on a pair of leather pants and grab some whiskey while sitting down with this amazing story to find out. Every member of the band has a personality that makes the story so much more interesting and I can't wait to read every one of their stories.

L.P. Maxa lives in Austin Texas with her husband, daughter, 3 rescue dogs, 1 stray cat, and 1 fish that keeps dying that she keeps replacing so her toddler doesn't notice. She loves reading Romance novels as much as she loves writing them. L.P. says that inspiration can come from anywhere; a song lyric, a quote, a weekend with friends. The tiniest things spark amazing stories.
