Rock Rebel is now available!

“Tara Leigh has written her best Nothing But Trouble Book with Rock Rebel.

~Musings of the Modern Belle

 
SYNOPSIS

He’s a rock star with a secret; she’s a pop princess with a painful past, can their forbidden romance survive, or will their lies destroy them both?

I’ve earned my bad reputation.

A few years ago, I was New York City’s hottest classical music prodigy. But I wanted something else, something more. So I chased my real dream, and now… I’m rock royalty. Dax Hughes, lead guitarist of Nothing but Trouble. But to my family and former Juilliard classmates, I’m an outcast. A misfit. A rebel.

They’re not entirely wrong. I don’t give a damn what other people think, and I’m all for breaking the rules… except when it comes to our new opening act, Verity Moore.

Rock gods don’t tour with pop princesses.

It’s not personal. Actually, under that fallen diva reputation, Verity’s incredibly talented. And her fiery redheaded personality is… intriguing. But I’m convinced the skeletons in Verity’s closet are as scandalous as my own, and when we’re not sparring, she has a way of drawing out all those secrets I’m determined to keep hidden.

Yeah. Verity Moore is definitely off-limits . . .
But since when do I give a damn about the rules?

MY REVIEW

“If I was going to go up in flames, Dax could light the damn match.”

“I barely knew Dax. He barely knew me. But this invisible thread between us–I knew it deep in my soul. It was universal, primal, powerful.”

“He was in the zone. That place where music took over and you were just a conduit, a means of expressing something bigger and more powerful than you could fathom unless you experienced it for yourself. All bristling intensity, Dax was so beautiful in this moment. His passion pure and potent. He took my breath away.”

“Verity Moore. She was a sickness and a cure. Risk and safety net. The face of an innocent, the body of a sinner. A past filled with darkness, a future shining bright. My broken bombshell. My reckless, resilient rebel.”

I fell in love with Verity from the very beginning. She’s a lot tougher than she seems at the same time is the kind of girl you just want to protect. She made a lot of mistakes when she was younger, but everyone deserves a second chance. And when life tosses her that second chance, she’d be a fool not to take it. You see, Verity always wanted to be a singer and her big dream is about to come true. Being the opening act for Nothing But Trouble doesn’t seem real. She wants nothing more than to be a success and to prove to her fans that she’s more than just a has been. But when Dax enters the picture, he manages to turn her entire world upside down. Verity can’t stop thinking about him and worries that getting involved with a man like him would bring her nothing but trouble…There is a lot more to Dax than what meets the eye. Yes, he’s a sexy and talented musician, but would you have guessed that he was a child prodigy and has studied with some of the best? He could play just about anything you put in front of him and was a star when it came to classical music. That is until a woman broke his heart. He followed her to LA, but that just ended up being a dead end. Only his heart never recovered and he soon found a new outlet for his music. He’s great at what he does, but his walls are sky high. And when Verity enters the picture, all bets are off. There’s just something about her that gets under Dax’s skin and he can’t get her out of his mind. Their chemistry is intense and just begs to be taken a chance on. Staying away from each other seems impossible no matter how much they try…..

Overall, I really enjoyed Dax and Verity’s story. I was pulled in instantly and easily devoured this book in just a single sitting. I loved this author’s writing style and I loved the steady pace of the story. I will say that Rock Rebel does deal with some pretty tough issues and I appreciated the way that the author handled them.

I loved the pull between Dax & Verity and I really enjoyed seeing them trying to figure out things. They both had secrets in their past and guarded their hearts. But, the feelings these two had, were way too hard to deny. All they could do was sit back, enjoy the ride and hope that everything would work out in the end.

Rock Rebel is a fun and sexy read. While it is the third book in this series, it definitely can be read as a stand-lone. Rock Rebel will have you feeling a ton of emotions, but in the end, it’s totally worth the ride. This is the first book that I’ve read in this series and I’m super excited to get my hands on the other two books.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via the author & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*
