5 Pants Off
From the world of The Missing Butterfly comes a tale of two men who cannot stand one another, but cannot stand to be apart …
Jet gave up everything to make it to the top of rock. On track to take over his family’s business and wealth, he defied everyone to start at the bottom and work his way up to become drummer of one of the world’s most popular bands, Forever and a Dai. And his family might have forgiven him if he hadn’t taken his cousin Dai with him.
Jason is everything Jet chose not to be: an obedient son, a powerful and respected lawyer, wealthy, established, and set to inherit the family kingdom. Dai’s brother, and Jet’s cousin, he is a constant reminder of everything Jet should be and is not.
But everybody has secrets, and those secrets are all about to come out.

Its official, I love every book I read by Megan Derr. My first book by the author was The Missing Butterfly and since then I been reading all her fantasy books. Love You Like A Romance Novel brought the magic, and man I am in love with her rocker boys.
Jet has just hit gold, when he finds out his most perfect cousin writes steamy romance novel under a pen name. This comes as a surprise because his cousin is like an emotional robot, rich, and with lawyer attitude. As the lawyer for his rock band Forever and a Dai, Jet knows how much of a bastard his cousin Jason can be. There is no love lost between them, and the only time they get along is when they're fucking (so yes...Jet blackmailed him for the nookie). What started out as just sex might have escalated into more (but the boys are keeping that part to themselves), besides all this family bonding is illegal, and if they're family found about it well....
When Jet father dies of a heart attack and leaves his company and fortune to him, Jet is pissed because he never wanted it. That's why he left home 11yrs ago and they never tried to talk with him. His music is his life and that’s how he likes. The vulture that is his family descends because they want the company, but Jet wants to sell and the drama unfolds. Death threats, a family divided, and a romance forbidden. Jason and Jet have a lot on their very rich plates.
WooHoo, I liked the crap out of this one. There was angst, and rich people problems, and pretty rocker boys wearing make-up *swoon*. What I enjoyed the most is the relationship between Jason and Jet (yes, I know their cousins, and yea I'm pervy like that), I liked watching them get from point A to point B. Jason the fierce protector of his family, but if you piss him off he's not afraid to go ruthless on your ass. Jet, who just wants to sing and love Jason, and maybe prance around naked in public, it's a case of opposites attract, and man do they rock out.
Throw in the media, and syndicate crime bosses and you have yourself one entertaining read. Yes, some of it was a bit over the top but it worked cus it's all about the rockstars baby and crazy rich people. A little twist at the end there, which made Jet and Jason able to shout their love from the Hollywood sign but..., I am not in love with it. Megan Derr proves her versatility in writing, with Love You Like A Romance Novel.
Should You Read It? I don't even know why you're even thinking about it. Just run and go get it, and get lost in all its awesome. Ms Derr is hands down in my top ten of fave authors. I love this book like a romance novel (cheesy, but suck it). :D
