I think this is a journalist-rock star trope, but the description’s all about the heat between them and not so much about how she’s struggling to do her job or anything like that. See what I mean?

Summer 2001. Naomi Stein is just praying for a little peace from her son, her ex-husband and her boss. Instead, she is following surly Country singer Sam Rhodes across the USA, covering his breakout tour for Rolling Stone. Sam has had bad luck with women and Naomi is trouble from the start. Sam tries to keep the feisty, sexy blonde at arm’s length…until Naomi pushes him over the edge. The hottest tour of the summer has just caught on fire. The music gets better and the romance steamier as they criss-cross the country. Will their passion burn out as autumn approaches? Stubborn pride forces them apart until the tragedy of 9/11 compels them to face each other one more time.

Interesting twist at the end there, too. Bringing 9/11 into it? How? I’m curious about this, and how it changes their dynamic.

The whole journalist thing? Meh. Been there, done that. But… what other reason would this woman have for following the band around? A legit one, anyway.
