Elyssa Patrick has a knack of writing humorous characters, and One Hit Wonder doesn’t disappoint in that aspect. I loved Damon with his chocolate umbrella martinis and his hideous eye for clothes. Damon was a one hit wonder back in his teens, and years later, he’s trying to revive that career. His assistant, Jane Timmons, has fallen in love with Damon. He has outrageous clothes sense but he’s charming, kind and he’s doesn’t act like an arrogant rock star.
Jane is finding it harder to hide her feelings from him, so she tells Damon she wants to quit. Jane also wants to start her own PR company, but doesn’t want to use Damon to achieve this. Damon doesn’t want Jane to quit. He’s started noticing her in a different light, and he knows he’s got to make the first step towards Jane if he doesn’t want to lose her.
This is a cute novella with a super fun hero. Damon and his chocolate martinis was funny and unusual. He didn’t act like the usual heroes you get in romance, and he was refreshing. I liked Jane, but she didn’t wow me like Damon did. Though I liked that she wanted to achieve her goals through hard work and ethics, and not by using people to get to the top.
I did have a few issues. During the time when Damon and Jane first kiss, there’s a lot of ruminating going on in their heads which brought me out of the scene. It went on for a few pages, and I felt it lessened the tension and romance from the scene. There’s not a lot of driving plot in this story, so I thought their coming together was a little rushed.
One Hit Wonder makes for a cute read, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this author has next up her sleeve. C+

I liked this a little bit more than you did, Lou, but I do agree that there wasn’t a lot of conflict in this book..so that made the ending quite lackluster. I do like the way she writes though and would like to read what else she puts forth.
This sounds nice and cute.
