Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I'm not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that's what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money - and women - than I know what to do with. But what you don't see is the wreckage I've caused. The memories and pain I can't escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn't work. It hurt me and - worse - it hurt my band. That's the last thing I want to do, so I'm cleaning up my act... starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice - Delaney is the perfect "girlfriend." When I'm with her I don't have to pretend. It's like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that's dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn't actually exist. He's a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it's impossible to love a lie, right?

When I read the blurb for Rock King, I knew I wanted to read it. A story about a rocker with secrets, yes please!  Add to it the angst, god the angst. It drives me crazy, but I love it in my stories. And this one tested me in so many ways. I am literally surprised my eReader is in one piece!

I liked Shane. His past was not an easy one and it weighed on him. As the lead singer of Nothing But Trouble, he had everything he wanted at the tip of his fingers. But all of it just hid what he carried deep inside. Now even the drugs, alcohol and women were no longer helping.

Though Delaney also has a sad past, she was so strong and determined. She runs into an old friend that invites her to a party that will change her future. Se was strong and determined and I like that about her.

When Delaney meets Shane, she is not like other women. She does not fall under his charm and get swept away. No, for her it is not the Shane the worlds know that she falls for, she falls for the man he hides from everyone.  Delaney is hired to be a fake girlfriend/sober partner for Shane. Will she be able to help him?

This book had it all! Rock stars and all that comes with that lifestyle and the angst, that angst! Tara Leigh is a new to me author and I am so glad I found her. I am very excited to see more of this series as well.


My eyes skidded over Delaney, taking in her flushed face and now naked lips, their gloss left behind on her wineglass. I continued my downward trajectory, sweeping over every inch she’d poured into the red dress still scratching at my corneas. “I don’t know what kind of guys you’ve been with before—but I’m with you right now because I think you’re fucking gorgeous. I look at your face and all I see is your perfect mouth, practically begging for me to kiss you.”

Finishing the last of my beer, I set the glass on the table. “That night, I could barely tear my eyes away from your ass, like half the guys there. And as for the rest of you, no one needs to tell me that you were made for my touch, Delaney.”

I kept my comments focused on Delaney’s physical attributes because everything else—especially this strange connection we seemed to share—made me feel like I was unraveling from the deepest part of me. It was too big, too unruly, to cage in with mere words. But whatever it was, it had kept me from walking away.

My heart thudding, I tried to stem the tide of words leaking from my mouth, but they wouldn’t stop. “I don’t want you because Travis told me I should. I want you because…Goddamn it, I’d have to be dead not to.”
