Play Nice by L.P. Maxa Blog Tour

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 Jäger, 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.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a really good read, and has some truly wonderfully funny lines. There are a lot of rock star romance books around, but this one brings enough originality and doesn't fall into the despair that can bring down other such stories. There are undoubtedly plenty of groupies, definite excesses of the non-legal nature, but the bonds that hold the band and the wider family (including mascot!) are delightful. The budding relationship is both hot and enticing, and the honesty between the leads makes the story just that much better. It is the first of a series, and leaves us a little in the lurch at the end – but not in a bad way – other than wanting the next installment as soon as possible!

Sexy Rock Stars.....check. Hot Lead Singer....check.

Love sexy rock star books, especially ones without all the groupie drama. Lexi boards a rock star bus and her future becomes a bit more clear as she spends time with Dash the lead singer. I enjoyed the romance from the start that bloomed between Dash and Lexi. This group seems a bit playful and less manwhorish than most rocker books. I enjoyed meeting all the members and the drama they created. Four stars of entertainment!

Absolutely enjoyed this first in a new series!! Rock star romance at its best! With a sexy as sin Dash as the lead singer. Leading lady, Lexi, the band’s new drummer's best old friend a photographer asked to join the tour to take some candid pictures at Dash's insistence. He finds her someone he can’t just let walk away! The almost love triangle dynamic between old friends Lexi and Luke, and Dash make for some fun banter back and forth between the 3 of them. Great jealous possessiveness by Dash, the rock God who has found himself trying to woo a woman for the first time in far too long. I found the book fun & funny with a decent dose of drama, action and steam. L.P. Maxa's writing voice was easy to read and the story kept me engaged until the very end (sort of end? end-ish?). I'd definitely love to hear more from the boys in The Devil's Share and look forward to the next book. Maxa gives us well written side characters that kept me intrigued about their own pasts and wanting to know about their futures. I think this series will be very fun to read! Highly recommend to anyone who likes reading Michelle Valentine or Olivia Cunning – two of my favorites!

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.
