New Release: Hard Rock Kiss by Athena Wright and Review


Rock star god Nathan Walker is the first person to make me feel alive in years. But I can’t let this happen. I can’t let us happen. For my sake, and for his.

Nathan Walker is famous. Rich. Gorgeous. A rock star god. The media says he goes through women like tissues. That he’s never been seen with the same girl twice.

From the minute we met, I knew there was something more to him.

Every brush of his lips, every touch of his skin, makes my body, heart and soul sing.

It’s not just physical. In those moments we share together, I know he cares for me.

Just like I’m beginning to care for him.

But there’s a secret I’m keeping from him. A secret that will change everything. A secret that could ruin his dreams, his future.

Despite all the playboy rumors, I know Nathan would never intentionally hurt me.

What if I have the power to hurt him?


Hard Rock Kiss is the second book in the Cherry Lips rock star romance series, and the 11th book in Athena Wright's Hard Rock 'verse.

Purchase this Book:


I always love a rockstar romance and this author has written some of my favorites.  Hard Rock Kiss is a really well done novel that sucks you in right from the beginning.  Athena Wright always does a great job developing characters that are relatable.  She incorporates deep topics into each of her novels and it is evident that she does her research.  This is something that makes her books not a typical rockstar romance.  Yes, Nathan is the stereotypical famous, womanizing, arrogant rockstar who falls for a regular girl, but he also has great depth to him.  He is dedicated and very caring towards those he loves.  Becca is a strong, unique character.  I don’t want to give anything away, but she has a secret that she keeps from Nathan in the beginning.  This secret has affected and still affects her whole family and she worries that it will be too much for Nathan.

The book moves at a good place and Becca and Nathan have great chemistry together.  I also enjoyed seeing some of the characters from the pervious Cherry Lips books and from her Darkest Days series.  This book is told entirely from Becca’s POV which I think was appropriate for the storyline, but I do wish that there were a couple chapters told from Nathan’s POV.

Hard Rock Kiss is book 2 in Athena Wright’s Cherry Lips rockstar series. It can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading the novella Hard Rock Promise (currently free if you sign up for the author’s newsletter) and Hard Rock Heart.

I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
