Review: ROCK KING by Tara Leigh!

My Review: I love rock star romances. It is probably my all-time favorite sub-genre of romance... well, okay one of the top three, at least. So any time a new rock-star romance book gets released, I'm jumping at the bit to read it. But I was a little let down with this one. Maybe I got too excited and built it up in my mind, or maybe I'm just comparing it to previous ones I've read and loved, but this didn't wow me as much as I had hoped. 

The story was good enough, but it just felt like it recycled well known plot points without adding anything new, original, or exciting. It was almost as if the author had cut parts of Kylie Scott, Kristen Callihan, and Nalini Singh's series and rearranged them a little. But hey, I still read it, and I still enjoyed it enough to finish. And I'd read the next book in the series because I saw a lot of promise here, and I think this book was worth it.

Cover Lovin': I like covers like these - I can imagine what the hero's face looks like. 

Recommendation: Book one - no prior knowledge necessary!

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)! This was an enjoyable read, but it was nothing to write home about. I'd check out more in the series in the future.

Today we are taking part in the promo tour for ROCK KING by Tara Leigh! ROCK KING is available now, and the second book in the Nothing but Trouble series, ROCK LEGEND, is available for pre-order and will release on July 17! Check out some teasers for both titles below.


ROCK KING by Tara Leigh - available now!

Blurb: Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

  I'm not who you think I am. Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that's what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money - and women - than I know what to do with. But what you don't see is the wreckage I've caused. The memories and pain I can't escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold. I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn't work. It hurt me and - worse - it hurt my band. That's the last thing I want to do, so I'm cleaning up my act... starting with Delaney Fraser. Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice - Delaney is the perfect "girlfriend." When I'm with her I don't have to pretend. It's like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that's dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn't actually exist. He's a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer. And it's impossible to love a lie, right?

Tara Leigh writes steamy contemporary romance featuring tortured heroes worth lusting after and the women they didn't know they needed. She attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.
