Book Tour/Review: Hiding in the Smoke by Ofelia Martinez

Book Details

Format: Paperback, 333 pages
Series: Industrial November on Tour, Book One
Publication: November 19th 2021 by Reading Cactus Press
Synopsis: Sofia
One night.
No cuddling.
No sleepovers.
These are the rules I live my love life by. Running a business as a bar owner leaves no time for relationships—or their drama. But when I meet international rock star Brenner Reindhart, he makes me want to break all the rules . . .
Keeping Industrial November at the top of the best-selling charts for over eight years has taken a toll on me, and I’m ready to slow down.
I’ve been burned by love before, and I’m finally ready to try again. I think Sofia Ocampo might just be the one. Only, she has no plans to ever be in a relationship.
Aware she has no interest in it, I still give her my heart.
I can only hold my breath and hope she won’t break it.

My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★★☆ (3.5)
I fell victim to a rockstar romance again. I just can’t resist them, so naturally, when Rachel sent this tour invite out, I had to sign up. Not to mention, the cover itself is gorgeous! Overall, this was a very enjoyable read as well.
I loved the female lead in this one. Sofia is strong and knows exactly what she wants, which I love. And she’s bisexual! I actually wasn’t expecting that, so I thought maybe I misread her name and it was actually Bren’s chapter… there aren’t many bisexual characters in romance books. I’m glad that we’re being represented more!
I did struggle at times with the writing style and some of the spicier scenes, but it wasn’t really too big of a deal for me. I still enjoyed reading it, and I’ll definitely keep up with Ofelia’s books!
Disclaimer: I received a finished copy of this book via Rachel’s Random Resources and the author in exchange for an honest review.
