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.

The memories and pain I can't escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.I tried to for...

    ***Now Available***I told myself this year that I needed to seek out new authors, embrace some new, try to find some I like. Seems like I don't need to embrace any really, they are literally planting themselves as new favorites on my lists. Tara Leigh is one of them. Rock King is the first in her Nothing But Trouble series, and let me start by saying Going into a new release, by a new to me author, I am always nervous. This story, one of my favor...

    “I would destroy her. But maybe, just maybe…she could save me.” Rock King is book one in the Nothing But Trouble series by Tara Leigh. Tara is a new to me author so what better chance to introduce myself to a new author than with her brand new series.Shane Hawthorne is a rock king, the lead singer of Nothing but Trouble, one of the most popular rock bands of the decade. Named sexiest man alive more than once, it would appear that Shane had ...

      ~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~So color me surprised because I really enjoyed this book A LOT. I'll be honest, I usually avoid rock star books like the plague. They all tend to have the same cliché plots complete with OTT other women drama, groupies, and/or cheating. Thankfully, this one was a bit different. I was also impressed by how well written it was. The pace was fairly good. I think maybe it was a tad too long as some parts dragged a bit but ...

    This is my first book by this author, so I was very curious as to how it would be...especially since "rockstars" is one of my favorite tropes ;)I am happy to say, that I was pleasantly surprised by this one !The storyline isn't really original if I am being honest. I have read many books with the same sort of plot, some better, some not. But since I am being honest here... I really don't care. If it works it works and this one worked for me, eve...

    Firs I want to thank the author for giving me this book. It has no influence whatsoever on my rating.3 "it's not you it's me" starsLet me say something already: I've read this book after having finished a monstrously powerful book and it was a disservice to this story. It's really difficult to come right after a phenomenal read.What is the plot and who might love this book?The plot is a classic trope of singer rock star plagued by demons and hiri...

    Well damn – this one blew me away. I loved it, loved it, loved it. Can someone give me book two right this moment? I need more, and I need it now.Having read and enjoyed Tara Leigh’s Deal Breaker, the second book in her Billionaire Bosses series, I knew I needed more of the author’s work. Already I have Penthouse Player sitting on my Kindle waiting for me to dive into, but I found myself reading Rock King first. How could I not dive into it...

    4.5 angsty rocker stars!I loved this book! A beautifully intense rockstar romance that is SO much more than I was expecting. Dramatic and emotional, angsty and romantic, with epic chemistry, I fell in love with these characters and their story, and I can’t wait for more from this series!Shane Hawthorne is a rock god. Dubbed the sexiest man alive more than once, he is the lead singer of a hugely successful rock band, and is loved and adored by m...

    Like everyone else who has read Rock King, I was attracted to this book thanks to the cover and the fantastic blurb. It's my first Tara Leigh book and one of the rare occurrences where I have reached for a book about a rockstar, because I usually have too high of expectations for them. In this case, I thought the rockstar persona, the secrets, the partying, all of it, was very accurate. Shane Hawthorne is the rockstar, the hearthrob, the guy ever...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author and Buoni Amici Press***This book is a rock star romance, and there are certain elements that always exist in this trope. the rock star is going to be sexy, and at least a bit of a bad boy. The woman he gets involved with is either going to be hired to be around him, or from a completely different world. This was all in here...and yet it was done in a way that felt a little different, I think because even though he i...

    Rock King was a introduction to me to Tara Leigh’s writing as I’ve never read a book by her before and I absolutely loved it. It sucked me in from the beginning and I felt my heart beating fast through many moments in this book.Normally when I’ve read a rock star romance it’s the rock star that is severely flawed or has a deep dark secret. In this story both characters have secrets, both seem to be seemingly running from their past and bo...

    A girl hired to be a rockstars girlfriend. Oh!!!I know it a common trope nowadays. I myself have read many books with similar plotline. So what's different about Rock King ??Well, both of the MCs have secrets. In the first chapter, Shane states that he is not what he is. Is he a Fraud? Runaway? Addict? Murderer? Is his name even really Shane Hawthorne?When Delaney is hired to pretend as Shane's girlfriend, she makes it clear that she doesn't want...

    What to expect when reading a Rockstar novel ?Well there are basically two no wait THREE ways this experience can go. Lets start with the worst… something superficial over the top with unlikeable characters – ok lets forget about this third option fast… The other two options are for one .. the cliché … the Rockstar that has everything plus a fan falling in love with him. They meet - he falls for the fan … - some drama is about to happe...

    You know those amazing books you read, that are so well written, with such a fantastic storyline, that you start panicking when you are coming down to the last 10% of the book because you don’t want it to end…YEP! Rock King by Tara Leigh is one of THOSE books! YES, Tara! You knocked it out of the park with this book! This is an eye opening perspective on the Rock World and groupies and obsessive music fans! The concept of a “contractual gir...

    The thing that bothered me the most when it came to this book was Shane. I might have felt that his reaction was justified if I hadn't spent half the book reading about how Delaney stood by Shane's side while everything was going down. Delaney was a rock to him, someone to rely on and when she revealed her secret he broke up with her. Even though he was loving her. In one sentence he was saying how much he loved her and in the other that he didn'...

    Rock King by Tara Leigh is the first book in the Nothing but Trouble series. Like every new author I read, I went in with an open mind, but after the first few chapter, I was hooked than my mind was blown!! I have read quite a few Rocker Romances; some storylines were a little cliché and repetitive. But I liked that Rock King was different. Shane Hawthorne needs a girlfriend to go on tours with him, to keep himself in control and not be a typica...

    dnf ~ 30 %What a disappointment. The blurb says: Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance! This is nothing like Kylie Scott and especially not like Kristen Callihan ( I love her books).I've read this story too many times before: Rock star needs a fake girlfriend, bad boy falls for ordinary girl bla bla bla... It doesn't even bother me if the story is well told. Unfortunately this one is not....

    There was a lot going on in this book. Shane is a rock star who needs a "girlfriend" to keep him grounded. Delaney is reluctant to be that "girlfriend". They share almost the same past, and both tried to run away from it.Their chemistry was visible on the pages of this book. It did get it a little emotional towards the in. This was a spectacular first in a series.
