#Review Rocked by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott

Title: Rocked
Author: Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott
Rating: 3.5 stars

I was skimming through Facebook a couple of weeks ago and came across a recommendation for this book. It was on sale and the person was raving about how good it was, so I figured I'd give it a try.

As I read this book I had the distinct feeling that I was reading Twilight fan fiction. So much so that I googled it to see if it had been fan fiction. It wasn't. Or, at least, I couldn't find any reference to it originally being fan fiction.

The pacing of the book was very similar to what you find in fan fiction. There's a lot of drama and a lot of sex. I lost count of how many sex scenes were in this book. For the most part they were well written. It's just that after a while I just wanted to move the story along.

I really liked both Deacon and Harper. They were easy to relate to and the evolution of their romance didn't feel forced. I could have done without some of the drama from Deacon's bandmates, but I get that the authors are setting up for future books.

Overall, I liked the book. Didn't love it, but liked it enough that I will most likely continue with the series.

I recommend this story for those who like slower paced romances with a rocker edge to them. 


Author Bio

PENTAX ImageUSA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story—a bible parable—in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars. When she’s not scribbling furiously, she can usually be found watching men’s college basketball, playing her music way too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.


TARYN ELLIOTT comes from the great state of New York—upstate, thank you very much. She’s usually busy making up stories with her best friend until the wee hours of the morning, or fangirling over her favorite TV show. She falls in love with each and every one of her leading men as she writes their book, and there’s always a soundtrack to match.
