I always love a rockstar romance and this author has written some of my absolute favorites. This amazing boxed set features lovable, relatable, well developed characters along with unique and engaging storylines all expertly woven into beautifully written novels.

Hard Rock Crush

What I love about this book is that the heroine, Cerise, is a hard rocking singer and is a character easy to relate to.  She has a strong confident persona on stage, and yet she is running from feelings about something in her past. What happened to make her fear relationships? Enter Liam Knight. He is just swoon-worthy! Liam and Cerise have an intense attraction to each other that is palpable. Getting to know the "real" Cerise was intriguing and I was kept engaged as we gradually learned why Cerise and Liam are the way they are.

Hard Rock Kiss

Hard Rock Kiss is a well written novel that draws you in right from the beginning. 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. These two have great chemistry together and I really enjoyed how their story unfolded.

Hard Rock Muse 

Hard Rock Muse is an entertaining, sweet, second chance romance that illustrates just how words have meaning as do actions. What one cannot communicate in words can be just as strongly revealed through music and actions. Everly was a character that I could easily identify with. At times, my heart positively broke for her, but she is a resilient heroine that I couldn’t help but love.  As for Julian, I loved him! He is strong, but also has a vulnerability to him as well as a big heart. Both Everly and Julian have such an amazing connection and I loved the chapter about them reminiscing on how they met.

Hard Rock Love

Seth is the gregarious drummer from Cherry Lips while Abby is a bookish college student who is also the younger sister of Seth’s best friend Everly. Of course, this means that Abby is completely off limits. I adored Seth. He comes across as the jokester, but he has hidden depth. Always putting the others before him, I wanted to give him a big hug as he grapples with the change in band family dynamics. He is so sweet to Abby and one could not help, but love him. Abby is a caring, serious girl which some insecurities. I loved how she was able to “see” Seth. I also enjoyed watching her journey to self discovery. The two of them are great together.
