Review: THE ROCKERS SERIES by Terri Anne Browning!

Release Date: Series began in January 2013

Type: Bundle, Series, Rock stars, Contemporary, Growing up together.

My Review: I'm going to start this review by saying I only read the first book in this series - but I will be reading the rest. I didn't want to review too many of them at once, because I was afraid I'd start to get characters confused with different plots. But while I don't think this is the best book ever, I did enjoy it. It's not good for the mind, maybe, but your soul loves it.

I did have some issues with the story - there are quite a few instances that would never happen in real life. But I can easily get past that, considering the reason I read fiction is that it is not real life. What I deeply disliked was how judgmental Em was. She called other women every name in the book, because they wanted to sleep with the guys. But Em also wanted to sleep with one of them, so she doesn't have too much ground to stand on. Oh, but that's different because it's lurve, right? 

The next book in the series is queued up, ready for reading - so obviously I liked this well enough to need more. 

Cover Lovin': Simple, and the title is hard to read, but not bad.

Recommendation: You'll want to read these in order, since the first book gives some of the band's backstory.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5). This is what I would call crack-fic. You know it's not good for you, but you just don't want to stop.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Happy Reading!

THE ROCKER SERIES by Terri Anne Browning

The Rocker Who Holds Me (The Rocker, #1)

Touring with four rockers is the thing of dreams At least that is what people tell me. To me those four rockers are my family. They have watched over me from the time I was five years old. Protecting me from my mother and her drunken, drug addict rages. When they made it big they still watched over me. And when my monster of a mother died they took over as my guardians. In the six years since that happened I have watched over the four men that mean everything to me. I take care of them just as they once took care of me. I handle all the dirty work behind the scenes of a rockers life. It isnt always pretty. At times it can be damn near disgusting, especially when I have to get rid of their one night stands. Ugh! Taking care of them doesnt bother me though. I mean its not like Im in love with one of them. That would be crazy. Falling for a rocker is NOT smart. Okay, so Im not smart. I love my guys, and one of them kind of holds my heart in his big old rocker hand. But Im dealing. Ive been able to keep it my little secret for years now. I'm not, however, dealing with this bug that I seem to have caught. It scares the hell out of me. I hate doctors, but Im suddenly more worried about finding out what is wrong with me than what the doctor might do to me. When I get my test results back my life will never be the same again
