Your invited to tag along on Anna's magic carpet ride and experience her life, as it promises plenty of rock n' roll mixed with the fear of an unnatural forever. Her Rock n' Roll fantasy may never die, but will she?

Just look at her! Who does she think she is? Strutting in with her wavy shoulder length brown hair, framing a heart shaped face and Lavender eyes. Wearing a size 8 Leather outfit as she enters the paranormal arena throwing up Rock Horns, followed by her motley looking crew:

This copy was given to me by the lovely author for an honest review in return.

What did I think of Rock n' Roll Promises? Well, for one, why hadn't someone written this sooner. The plot starts off with a leap and skyrockets. Anna, the female lead, is strong, she's dedicated and an amazing friend. She's sweet and generous and a wonderful character. Jaxon, the male lead, is gorgeous. He's strong and loyal and hell bent on protecting Anna. This book does have sexual content, very

Let's just say this book starts off with a bang (winks.) I fell in love with Jaxson and his need (if you call it that) to have Anna in his life, "Because, Anna, by doing it this way, it will answer more than just one question. When you find me in your past you will understand why I can be part of your future. I have never left you and I never will no matter what you decide." I want a man like that, hot damn!

First off, this book is definitely 18 and up. It has some pretty steamy parts. I really, really liked this book. Anna was turned into a vampire against her will. Vampires in this book aren't like the myths that are so popular. Each vampire feeds on something different. Some do feed on blood, but some like Sebastian feed on sex. It varies between vampires. Anna feeds on something different than those two, but it's a surprise.

Even though Sebastian turned her against her will, it was on accident.

I really liked this story from the beginning. It's a new spin on vampire lore, and there are other supernatural beings, as well. We find out about Anna's past throughout the book, as she goes into a trance to "relive" part of her life from the night she was turned, to determine how Jaxson knows her (after having a pretty steamy interaction with him). Her best friend Paige and Paige's boyfriend Ozzie, a h

Rock 'n' Roll Promises is about vampires, weres and so much more. However, don't mistake it as just another paranormal story, AmBear Shellea takes paranormal to a whole new level, a level where vampires don't need blood to survive especially Anna, see she's a vampire all her own, unique from the rest. With her love for rock n roll and coffee Anna is one bad ass vampire that will rock your world. The connection between Jaxson and Anna is intense, she would love to hate him, but now that she knows ...more

Rock N Roll Promises is the first in the Rock N Roll Paraphantasy series by AmBear Shellea and it does not disappoint! Fast paced, action packed, mysterious, alluring and sexy (as the beautiful cover promises), I am already left hungry for more. I devoured this book within 24hours, and am eagerly loading the next on my Kindle.

One night of passion changes it all for vampiric Anna, and now she has to seek her memories and find out who Jaxson really is, and what he means for her. Throw into the mix

Who would have thought to put a twist on a vampire book without all the blood and guts? AmBear did a fantastic job, and that's one of the many reasons why I fell in love with this book. it's really unique and nothing like this has been written before. Instead of craving blood, Anna's craving is... music. Let's not forget about the man who has been by her side for centuries, without her even knowing it. Jaxon and Anna has a huge history, and the connection between them is so intense. He wants to ...more

FINISHED!

I made it to the end and I didn't think that would happen. AmBear Shellea wrote in the third person, which I don't have a problem with, but she just went on with it for so long that a lot of the time I didn't know who's POV I was reading. Maybe she was trying to build suspense, but I was just confused. The characters, I did care anything about. Jack was the most interesting but he was in the story much. Basically, I finished this book only because it was so short. I refused not to finis

This is a very different type of vampire story!

Anna is a vampire who doesn't feed off of human blood, but rather something that she loved in her human life. After spending the night with a friend she goes home to go into a trance to find out who this person was to her in her past. While she is out all hell breaks loose and brings a war to her front door.

The ending of this book is VERY attention grabbing. The book as a whole was great. I especially loved reading about Anna's past. This is anothe

This book is the first in the Rock n Roll Paraphantasy Series. The book is a light and quick read for readers who enjoy vampires and the supernatural. Nothing is what it seems and even her own understanding of reality is challenged when Jaxson makes a seemingly simple request of Anna. Her rendezvous with him sends her on a journey through her past to find out what their future may hold. Doing so, however, might

I loved this book. I was drawn into it and felt like I was there. I love Anna. She's fiery and amazing. The music that was mentioned are some of my favs. Jaxson is totally hot. I loved how AmBear created a group of friends with different supernatural powers and they understood this about each other. I also loved the hot, steamy sex scenes. The cliffhanger left me wanting more. If you love sex, rock n roll, vampires and werewolves then this is the perfect book.

Love this book! Have read it three times now. Don't know if I'm just a fast reader, if the book is that fast paced, or both... BUT am so frustrated when I'm finished! Cause I want more! Lol Plus the cliff hanging at the end just makes you want to keep flipping the page.. (Even tho there's no more pages to flip).. Do me a favor AmBear and finish the next book! Lol ;-)

This is a definite different take on paranormal! Different in a good way in my opinion. And it is most definitely HOT HOT HOT! The characters are strong and well written, sometimes it did go a bit slow for my taste but quickly picked back up. I will definitely be reading the second book.

Anna was accidently bitten by Sebastian changing her to what she is now, a vampire that doesn’t need blood to survive. Anna has made a deal with Jaxson that he will promise to keep her secret as a vampire as long as she shares a night of passion with him. But there is something about him that she can’t remember and he is a part of his past. She’ll have to seek her memories to find out what he really is to her and if t

ARC for honest review

This story is a new take on paranormal creatures. Where vampires, who we all know as night creatures who feast on blood, actually are able to feast on not blood but different things, like lust and in Anna’s case, music. Weird, yes, different, yes, but this story has unique qualities that keep you engaged. The majority of this story is finding out about Anna, and how she knows Jaxson from her past. Without the action/adventure that I normally associate with vampire tales, thi

Paranormal books are hits or misses with me. But this one called out to me. I was intrigued with the synopsis. It pulled me in instantly with the fact that there is a bigger story besides what lies with Anna. It is like a game of cat and mouse, or in this case a game of vampire and werewolves!

Anna is gorgeous and has a wild sexy side to her. She loves to tempt and seek out hot guys. It also seems as if she has a natural seduction about her. She is fueled by Rock and Roll, which is pretty awesome

To say that Rock ‘n’ Roll Promises starts out with a bang is an understatement (you will see once you read it). The author of this book has a monumental imagination. The characters have very detailed and uncustomary characteristics. If you are looking for something different in a character, look no further. I would say that this is a vampire book with a twist, but that is too cliché for a book that is so incomparable to the others.

AmBear Shellea’s “Rock n Roll Promises”—book 1 in the “Rock n Roll Paraphantasy” series—is an intense and sensual paranormal treat. Shellea creates an almost reality world where vampires are different from the old legends, weres are their mortal enemies, and anything goes if you’re willing (& able) to bend the rules. Shellea’s characters are clever, unique, and interesting. Her heroine, Anna, is a new type of vampire who is almost human. She is witty, brazen, and enticing. Her hero, Jaxson, ...more
