I am glad I was finally able to check this off my TBR list.

This story had a great start but you could see right away that Julian was in a toxic place and the relationship could only be doomed but you know that it was something worthing fighting for and you just have to wait for him to figure it out.
I started out really liking the characters but the story sort of petered out. The real drama faded away and the author threw one in that felt made up. Since there was no real substance to the story, the characters didn’t flesh out.
This was not what I expected and the ending did seem a bit abrupt, but I did enjoy it. There was a lot of secondary character introduction to set up for future stories.
I enjoyed watching this story unfold. Mimi is such a vibrant character and such a contrast to passionate but closed off Calix. Calix screws up near the end and personally, I wouldn’t have given him another chance but thankfully this was a romance and there was a HEA.
Rock Redemption is a painfully beautiful, rip-your-heart-out romance. I saw several reviews discussing how this story will rip open your emotions and it is all true. You will feel all the pain and torment as Kit and Noah try and work through their love for each other and Noah’s dark past.
A great story with fabulous characters. I have already downloaded Book 1 from the series so I can read Emmie and Slater’s story.
I am sure that I am not being fair to this story since a search of Goodreads show me in the minority, but I couldn’t get passed the beginning of this story. It wasn’t the womanizing rock star that was the problem, it was the hypocritical heroine.
I have been looking forward to this book since the teasers about Charlie and T-Rex in Rock Addiction. Although the story was good and Gabriel Bishop was patient and sweet, Charlotte’s PTSD is so strong that the heat index on this story flatlined. Nalini Singh tried to make up for it with daydreams and dirty talk, but panic attacks stilted almost all of the love scenes.
I was torn between loving and hating this story. There were moments when their bond moved me, and then others when their actions bothered the hell out of me. Luke’s brother calls it at the end of the story telling them they are still acting like the teenagers they once were, and that’s when it hit me what the problem was, their feelings were that of mature adults and their actions were still rooted in the teenagers they were when they originally fell in love.
