Kneel (God of Rock, #1)

Dash Justice wrote the songs everyone sings. His face hangs on every girl’s wall. But Dash wasn’t always a rock God. Once, he was just Jamie, the boy I loved. But when my name, sung from his lips promised I was good for only one thing, all sweet thoughts of him die. Now his excuses mean nothing. His apologies are weak and I’m about to show the world that even rock Gods can be brought to their knees.This is an erotic romance novel not suitab...

    Oh man. Oh man. Oh man. I have no idea how this can possibly turn out well, but if book 2 is anything like book 1, I’m in for the ride of a lifetime. Kneel is the first book in a rockstar second chance romance due. It’s dirty and gritty and beyond emotional. Jamie and Iris were childhood sweethearts but best intentions went bad and they’ve been estranged for years. Even all these years later and bitterness is still alive and well on both si...

    4 - 4.5 ★'s This is a friends to lovers romance that begins in high school, something happened and now it's ten years later. We get bits and pieces along the way with plenty of scenes in the past. Jamie and Iris were great together, sharing a love of music, specifically a band named Hawthorne. Finally on Iris' eighteenth birthday, Jamie sings a song he wrote about his feelings for her and they begin a very intense romance. In the present, Iris ...

    I went into this without reading the blurb and I am so glad I did. This has everything that I love in a great story. Childhood friends who fall in love, music, a rock star, second chance love and bucket loads of angst :-) Therefore, I was sneak reading all day as I just couldn't stop myself, I have no self control when I am enjoying a good book :) I even messaged Eden half way through the book because I was worried something was going to happen t...

    I fell hard for these two flawed characters and CAN'T WAIT for the next book, Beg, to come out! Like, I need it YESTERDAY!!! If you love rockstar romance, second chance love, hate and love colliding on the page... this book is for you!
  • Libby Harrison
    "If I have to, I’m going to spend the rest of my life begging her to forgive me ."This effing A-hole needs to grovel so hard it's not even funnyHE RECORDED HAVING SEX WITH THE HEROINE WITHOUT HER PERMISSION AND THEN PLAYED IT TO THE AUDIENCE AT ONE OF HIS CONCERTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...and the blurb is incorrect because not once did he 'KNEEL'
  • Loz
    loved this one. i can never pass up some eden butler angst and this book has that along with a lot of my other book loves. we have childhood sweethearts, separation, a rockstar, drama, lies, misunderstandings, top notch heat & chemistry, strong storyline going forward. beware that it's a cliffy though and waiting 1 month for the conclusion is going to be rough.
  • Tracy *To the point Reviews*
    Never read this author before. I enjoyed this book... All things considered, I have not read anything for a few weeks now.She put out a good balance past/present while fleshing out the main characters and their relationship. The love they shared from a young age was full and passionate and I loved both main characters for NOT being cookie cutter copies of so many main characters I have been reading for the past years. I loved his latino heat and ...

    Surprises, Angst, and HOT!!Just a little warning...this book is super panty-melting hot, too! I absolutely loved Kneel and can’t wait to read more of Iris and Jamie’s story. “It’s a risk…” “Chica,” he said, grin sexy, tempting. “Life isn’t worth the ride if there aren’t risks.”My full review:

    Una storia tutta da raccontare quella di Iris e Jamie. Da bambini molte volte le richieste d’amicizia arrivano con dei bigliettini e quella che riceve Iris da ragazzina è alquanto particolare.“Nine Inch Nails or Seether?Led Zeppelin”Con una domanda sui gusti musicali nasce così la loro amicizia, perché è proprio la musica che li unisce. Trascorreranno gli anni in pomeriggi al negozio di vinili di zio Hector e serate a concerti fuori cit...

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads5 "that was flipping awesome" stars! I've never heard of Eden Butler and have never before read a single thing by her but she sure has my number! Kneel was rock star romance perfection for me. I fell hard for Jamie (aka Dash) and felt my heart break when Iris had to leave him for his own good, so many years before he became the God of Rock. The story goes back and forth from presen...
  • April Symes
    These are two characters that have a flawed and tragic past. Their romance was so deep yet one tragic mistake, caused their love to go sideways. Years later Jamie (aka Dash) has this horrible hate for his one time love Iris. He does everything he can to make her life miserable all because she did something to help him and has paid everyday for it. OMG this story had me all twisted. It is full of love, pain, angst, heartbreak, misunderstandings, h...
  • Brandy Roberts
    Ok just wow talk about a story that is going to shatter you and the ending oh my gosh the ending just tore my heart out I'm normally not a fan of cliffhangers but I knew going in that this was going to have a second book but the author really just I can't even is amazing with her endings . Eden Butler is one of my favorite authors when I start one of her stories I just know I'm in for a emotional ride that I don't want to get off on . Jamie (aka ...
  • MJ
    Well holy hell. Eden Butler has certainly upped the bar with this latest of hers. She took the ordinary in a rocker story and wrote one extraordinary tale. One that is multi-layered and rich with heart-wrenching emotion. One that seared my soul from beginning and end and still has me reeling as I wait for the conclusion in Beg.For Jamie and Iris, their lonely lives should have been complete as they fell in love in high school. But each had dreams...

    ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~As I rated Ms Butler's Thin Love as a 5* read, I was really excited to get this book to review; and delighted that it was the first of a new series. The book is told with flashbacks, which add an immediacy and a depth to what is unfolding in the present day. They clarify where the music started, and the relationship between Jamie and Iris. That reasons that things went so...
  • Ria - Reading Is Our Satisfaction
    A riveting read that is an absolute winner. Well Eden Butler has certainly raised the bar with KNEEL. This book was absolutely brilliant. I was unable to put it down, so it travelled everywhere with me. It is a rockstar, second chance at love story, that will hit you with a dart right on the bullseye of your heart.Emotional from the very beginning, Jamie and Iris's story will most certainly have you frustrated, laughing, sympathising and just sha...

    Iris Daine and Jamie Vega were high school sweethearts, until Iris made a mistake that destroyed their relationship. More than ten years later, Jamie is a rock legend… and a caricature of the boy who was her best friend and her everything.Stardom has changed him, he is the good boy gone bad, a man who has done every dirty thing imaginable . Jamie is contemptuous, dark, brooding and manipulative. He has never forgotten the hurt Iris has inflicte...
  • Maura
    ***WOW*** Kneel by Eden Butler is the first book in the God of Rock series. Jamie Vega and Iris Daine are best friends and each other's first love. Music is going to get him out of the town they grew up in and NYU is her future. They support each other through everything until something changes and their dreams change direction. This book is told with the past and present intertwined. Sometimes the flash backs happen almost mid paragraph and it t...

    5+ StarsWow, wow, wow!!! I was hooked from the very first introduction to Iris and Jamie. This was a book I just could not put down, with its raw emotions, unexpected twists and fabulous character development.The story flowed beautifully with an excellent balance of present and past flashbacks giving the reader background to the characters profiles. It built the tension perfectly which had me guessing what twist would be happening next.I was a li...

    I don’t even know where to start with this review. Kneel was nothing like I expected, but still kept me captivated until the very last word. And, seriously, that ending I need Beg ASAP because there’s going to be a whole lot of groveling going on. But back to Kneel is not your usual second-chance romance. There’s so much history between Iris and Jamie. So much heartbreak that you wonder how they’re going to work their way back to each oth...
  • Wendy Livingstone
    This is the 1st book in what is going to be a totally awesome series, and is Jamie aka “Dash”, and Iris’s story. These two were soulmates, until the unthinkable happened and ripped them both apart. Now 10 years later, they are both living the lives that they have always wanted. This story is told in present and flashbacks to the past. This is a heart-warming, emotional, gritty, raw, powerful, dark and twisted storyline, which is all consumi...
  • Judy Miracle
    I devoured this book. I seriously could not stop reading it. It's sexy and pulled me in from page one. If you love second chance romance and rocker romance well this is the book to read. Kneel will bring an all new meaning to a love/hate relationship. But its one you will fall hard for and be left begging for the next book Beg. There is so much heartbreak, history and just everything between Iris and Jamie that you wonder how they are going to be...

    Friends bonded by music. Love forged from friendship. Hearts bound by words. But sometimes love isn’t enough. And now those things that once were, are no more.Or are they? Kneel is the story of Dash Justice, super sexy rock god, and Iris Daine, the journalist about to receive the brunt of his ire, when he makes their private relationship, very, *very* public.But the past isn’t always in the past, and sometimes the secrets we keep do more harm...
  • Dawn Edwards
    *I received a free copy to read and review for wicked reads review team* I enjoyed the book, there is a lot of times that back and forth in time confuses me however this book needed it to understand the whole story between these two characters. Iris and Jamie's (Dash) story is actually heart breaking the more you read through, but you can understand all the other emotions that come from them too.. The way this book ended the next book should be a...
  • Natalie Bailey (LifeandLoveofaBibliophile)
    I'm so glad this was my first read of 2018. I dove into it without reading the blurb and I'm glad I did. I fell in love with the two slightly broken characters. It was an intense fast read, I devoured it in a couple hours. Each second with Jamie and Iris had me wanting more. I'm excited for the second book. I have no idea how Jamie will redeem himself but damn if I'm not looking forward to watching a Rockstar beg.
  • Kelly Anders
    It took me a little while to wrap my head around the "then" and "now" - but Lord! Once you get it all figured out, let the anxiety begin!! This book has ALL the feels. Anger. Anxiety. HOT. Sexy. Sweet. And so much more!I can't wait for the second book. Sure hope it doesn't take too long!
  • Kathleen R.
    5 amazing stars I had mistaken Eden Butler for Jenna Galicki - yes, i know, the names are totally different but it was the stories (the writing style and how it flowed) that felt similar when i read the blurb and boy was i wrong. Both authors have captivating stories, but Kneel drew me in for a few reasons: the cover, the title and the blurb. I'll admit that through much of the book i wondered why the author chose the title but the more we learn...

    i dont know what to say that would do this book justice it tore my heart and had such a strong wicked plot and a phenomenal twist that had my heart twisted along with it
