#OneClick today!!




A rock star on the rise.

I might have been born and raised in a motorcycle club, but until my father and MC prez calls me home, the guitar is my mistress, my band is my temporary family and fame is my drug of choice. I wasn’t expecting Mallory. She provokes every one of my protective instincts. Anyone who tries to extinguish her spark will answer to my fists. Unfortunately, this is Hollywood where sleazeballs are crawling over each other to tarnish girls like Mallory.

An actress on the run.

With my father behind bars, I’m in control of my life for the first time. In search of stardom and a connection to my past, I escape across the country to the one place I can make my dreams come true. I wasn’t looking for love. Or even lust. But Chaser helps make me feel safe. And thanks to the dangerous secret I’m keeping, I need his protection even more than he knows.

Off-the-charts chemistry.

Hollywood, fame, and love don’t always mix, but we were made for each other. We’ll defy the odds—and the people trying to tear us apart.

Kickstart My Heart is book one of a brand new trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Autumn Jones Lake.

BOOK REVIEW by Jennifer Mitchell, Bibliolater

Rating:  ⭐⭐⭐⭐💫

Bookish Tip: Pars well with your favorite 80’s playlist on Spotify!

Special thanks to Autumn Jones Lake for the advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

Kickstart My Heart is such a fun, flash back to the 80’s, steamy romance. I really love the retro feel of this book. It’s a fresh take on a romance novel. It’s super creative too.

Mallory is a complete sweetheart considering the cards she’s been dealt but it is Chaser who makes this book. He is yet another swoon-worthy book boyfriend. He oozes confidence, knows where he stands in life, is extremely loyal and does not let anyone stand in his way. Mallory and Chaser have such an amazing bond that develops super quickly. It’s insta-love which I am not a fan of but Autumn’s writing and focus on the characters had me completely overlooking it. She even subtly cracks a joke with how quickly Chaser falls.

In true Autumn Jones Lake form, Kickstart My Heart is a 294 page romance filled to the brim with action, comedy, twists, turns and incredibly HOT STEAM.

I do want to warn that this Book #1 of a Trilogy so it does hang on a cliffhanger of sorts. I cannot wait to see what happens next on this wild ride!
