Review: WHAT GOES ON TOUR by Claire Boston
Release date: February 11, 2014
What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?
Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that’s the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.
Until Libby Myles walks into his life.
Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer’s niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it’s the rock star that’s the issue.
Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone’s good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he’s out of costume he’s different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it’s a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.
But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there’s more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …

Dawn’s Review 3 Stars
I’m a sucker for a rock star romance and so I immediately said yes when I had an opportunity to read and review What Goes on Tour. In this, Kent aka Adrian is now in charge of his niece, Kate, after a tragic accident. Kate is adorable and quite strong-willed. When Kent goes on tour, he takes Kate with him but needs a nanny for those moments when he’s in concert. Libby, a Young Adult author, finds herself as Kate’s nanny following some interesting turns.
Libby and Kent/Adrian definitely have some sizzling moments which build up throughout the story. This is more of a fade-to-black style story but I loved the after moments. I could feel the connection between Libby and Kent/Adrian. I also really loved the connection between Libby and Kate. It was sweet and pure. Unfortunately, both Libby and Kent/Adrian have some pasts that leave them a bit wary and broken which impact the potential relationship.
Overall, I found this to be a wonderfully sweet story. One of the moments I really loved was seeing Libby overcome one of her fears (yay!)…I have the same fear and I swear I was right there with her! I also really loved the way Claire Boston brought in family, friendships, writing, and dreams into her story.

Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when she’d run out of books to read her mother handed her ‘Hot Ice’ by Nora Roberts and Claire instantly fell in love with romance novels.
The love of reading soon turned to a love of writing and she struggled to keep within the 1500 word limit set by her teachers for her creative writing assignments. When she finally decided to become serious about her stories she joined Romance Writers of Australia, found her wonderful critique group and hasn’t looked back.
When Claire’s not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games.
Claire lives in Western Australia, just south of Perth with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs.
