If music nourishes the soul…
Loved by millions, but shunned by blood, Heath “Fang” Fangor has led his band, Hot Wired, to the top while others have fallen by the wayside. He devoted his life to music, and from that devotion harvested a new family—his band mates and fans.
A man can desire nothing else…or can he?
Living in the shadow of her brother’s fame sucks! Sam Collins is desperate to have what she wants—a simple and uncomplicated life. She’s no stranger to scandals and how they work. Now that she’s inadvertently dragged Fang into the center of her latest gossip, could the scandal she created in her quest for freedom have gone too far?
Amid stardom the heart stages a new melody…
Fang has more fame and fortune than he will ever need, but none of that matters if he can’t have the woman of his dreams. Years have been wasted waiting for the right moment to approach the woman his heart desires above all others. There’s just one major problem...she’s his best friend’s sister. To have her, he will have to risk it all.
One that might be responsible for Rockin the Heart!
REVIEW...Reviewers Note: I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Four Hot, Steamy Rockers That Will Set You On Fire and Have You Beggin' For More!
First off, I want to say how much I appreciate Gracen Miller for allowing the opportunity to read and review her latest masterpiece. She’s a fabulous writer and her talent really shines super bright in this book. I was hooked from the start with the edgy, provocative heroine and the rockin’ hot alpha hero. They burned up the pages with their chemistry and if I wasn’t already a huge fan of this authors work, this book would have cemented her as one of my all time favorites.
Samantha Collins is a twenty year old hellion who’s been trying to live up to her own reputation as the troublemaking sidekick to her brothers band, Hot Wired. After her parents died when she was a young teen, her brother took her on the road with him and his band and along with all the parties, drinking and rockin’ out, there was little time for discipline or the time to suss out an identity of her own. Having been wrapped up so long in the bands orbit, Sam’s never had time to create a future thats away from the paparazzi who are constantly recording her life, so she acts out in a rebellious way. And what's worse, she’s in love with the lead singer, Fang, who is most definitely off limits and who she thinks only sees her as a little sister. She literally has no control over her own life.
Heath Fangor is the sexy lead singer of Hot Wired who’s had an endless procession of fangirls in his bed. He’s no novice to no-hassle one night stands, in fact preferring them. But since Sam turned eighteen and his view of the gangly teenager turned sexy vixen changed, he’s had a hard time watching her move through life and not being able to act on his hidden desires for her.
After Sam gets in trouble once again and Fang has to rescue her and a flirtatious video of the two of them goes viral, the bands press agents decides to capitalize on the media storm, forcing Sam and Fang to play out a fake romance. Only thing is, with both having feelings for the other one, the fake romance soon turns real. But not everyone is on board with these two would-be lovers and soon the band members find themselves taking sides.
How sexy was Fang? Sexy as hell! Thats how! Wow, this guy totally had me panting between scenes with the way he dominated his way past Sam’s walls. Once he decided to take up arms and fight for what he wanted, which was Sam, no one was going to tell him he couldn’t have her. He charged in and stole Sam’s heart as well as my own. His swagger, his dialogue and his confidence all shined through in the authors phenomenal writing and truly made Fang one of the best rock characters I’ve read to date. I loved him!
"You're all I want, Sam. You're the chords that pluck my heart and create the music inside me. Without you I am a hollow man, lyrics without music, notes minus the beat." -- Fang
Sam was wonderfully chaotic! I absolutely loved her. She was wild, out of control and her loyalty was inspiring. And though she was tough she had a vulnerable side she hid behind all that rough exterior. She wanted out of the limelight desperately but even when she tried to control herself, the media created fanfare so she decided to just go with the flow and really live life to its fullest.
I loved the dynamics of the band. They might have had their differences but they were a real family. I enjoyed all their dialogue, their playfulness and their individuality. The author gives each one their own unique voice and I hope each character gets their own individual story. And with the events that happened towards the end, there was a perfect setup for things to come.
The Wrap Up:
Simply irresistible, this book captivated me from beginning to end with its beautifully written prose, sexy and steamy characters and superb storytelling. In conclusion, I absolutely loved it.
Buy the Book!
