Love definitely wasn't on the setlist.

Opening for their idols on their first tour, Oblivion is living the dream. Mostly. Frustrated at being shoved out of his mediator role by their new manager, Deacon McCoy loses himself in brutal workouts. He only comes up for air long enough to refuel—and to tease the deliciously cute chef who makes him crave a lot more than what she's

I'm glad I gave this book a second chance. This time around I was in the mood for a slower paced story.

Nothing wrong with this book other than I couldn't for the life of me get into the story. Happens. The writing is good so maybe I'll try again later.

She was his ultimate song that would never have an end.

Harper was raised living the roadie life, so it isn't any surprise she finds herself working the kitchen for Oblivion as they tour. She has a plan and can't risk her dream for anyone especially a musician...been there, done that, has the panties on the wall to prove it. But then in walks Deacon McCoy, with his smile...

From the moment he touched her, he'd known it was more.

So truth be told, there has yet to be a Rockstar Romance that my pervy little self has been able to pass on. After falling in love with Cari Quinn's writing in Shadowboxer, when I saw her and Taryn Elliot have a sexy rock star romance series? Well let's just say I was a little excited to get my hands on Rocked.

In a sea of formulaic rock star romances, Rocked managed to truly stand out for me. Why? Because it didn't st

We know from the previous book, Seduced how the band come about choosing their name….
“They were going to have to come up with a name for the soap opera this shit was becoming. As the Oblivion Turns? Nope—pretentious. Days of Oblivion? No…wait. Lost in Oblivion. That had a certain ring to it.”
Before I start telling you about this series…let’s just say that I think the band’s name is totally AWESOME!!!!So COOL!!!!

The first book was a prequel to the series and basically a set up to the band’s sto

A story about love, music, and friendship that will tantalize all your senses with its rich descriptions and alluring plot and will leave you happy, sated and curious about what’s next for this so very different but great group of characters.

This book is not a cliché story about a “whorey” bad boy musician that meets a sweet girl and changes his deviant ways. It’s not even just about a boy and a girl. It’s a

I don't normally do NA, but I know that when Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott put words on paper, they bring it and they bring it hard, so I was game to try this. Plus, the hero in this book, Deacon McCoy is based off Jared Padalecki so I was all in.

Let me tell you something, Goodreads...this book sexy touched me in ways I didn't think were possible. Sweet feathery nancy, did it ever sexy touch me. Of course, being a writer myself, I must convey the important aspects. The dialogue is spot on, the e

Quick summary
Deacon McCoy, bass guitarist for Oblivion, is adjusting to the loss of his role as de facto manager of the band and mediator by subjecting himself to strenuous exercise while they’re on tour. It’s paying off by him having a killer body and an appetite off the charts (pardon the pun). Harper Pruitt, a recent culinary school graduate, is part of the catering crew for the tour and finds in Deacon someone who appreciates her cooking skills and much more.

Deacon is drawn to Harp

I had some difficulty with this book. I realized later that I'd started the prequel to this Seduced only to put it aside. Now I remember why. Rocked is a classic NA rock star book. It has some great characters - the band - Deacon, Nick, Simon, Jazz and Gray. Rocked focused on Deacon and his relationship with the chef who traveled with the bands, Harper. Unfortunately, I never really consistently connected with Harper. Sometimes I really liked her and at others, she was annoying. Her sayings "big ...more

Ok, only 3 stars. In more than 10 days I wanted dnf this one several times.
Very long book, I think it'd be better to cut it in 2 parts.
Heroine, firstly I hated her, she was trying to be strong and not pull her panties for this hit guy ,but she was rambling with herself: "I'm strong, I don't blush, I don't sweat for this guy, I saw guys like him and they don't affect me...".. gahhhh
They had a lot of out doors and indoors sex...
Hero is a rock star, hot, tender, nice, caring, faithful man

Following on the heels of the prequel novel Seduced that introduced the members of the rock band Oblivion to the literary world, this standalone novel gives us the story of Deacon, a gentle giant of a bass guitar player and Harper, a little spitfire chef who meet while on Oblivion's first real tour as an up and coming rock band.

Deacon and his band mates are just coming to grips with what life will be like for them in the near future as their fame and reputation grows. Harper, a roadie for most o

Rocked was a really good book. I loved pretty much everything about it. Deacon wasn't your typical manwhore rockstar and Harper wasn't the naïve doormat female which was refreshing. Their relationship developed slowly and that made it stronger. This was a looong book, but I love lengthy books so no complaints from me.

The only thing that irked me was the constant touching, hugging, and climbing on that Deacon's bandmate Jazz did with him. They are perfectly platonic friends who really appr

I was so excited to read this book that I went out and bought the first Seduced (Lost in Oblivion 0.5) and dived right in. I thought this book was sooo boring and to long winded. But even at that I started Rocked. I wanted to love it, I really did. I loved Deacon, but again like the first in the series I thought it was long winded at times and all they seemed to be doing was having sex. It seemed to me there was a story line, then loads of sex and then it got back to the story line. Ah I was fru ...more

This contemporary rock star romance just "Rocked" my world. See what I did right there? I'm so clever LOL. This was an adorable read. This author duo just knocked another one right out of the park. I just found the pair recently and am reading absolutely everything I can find of theirs. Trust me, you are gonna wish you did too.

It's been a while since I read SEDUCED and as I didn't have time to re-read before I received the advanced copy of ROCKED that I won, I had to re-familiarize myself with the band members and their back-stories. This took me about one or two chapters and I was back in the thick of it! Though this book is about Deacon (bass player) we get enough glimpses of the rest of the band and the dynamic is evolving from the first book (prequel) now that they're signed and trying to become a big nam

Rocked was a well written, intriguing, and hot with a capital H, book. It was also incredibly drawn out and repetitive book too though, with an ending that left me wishing for something different.

Rocked is centered around the relationship between Harper and Deacon. Harper is a former roadie and recently graduated chef with a jaded view of the rock 'n roll lifestyle. Deacon is the bassist of the up and coming band, Oblivion, who isn't your typical just making it big rock star. The two meet on to

I'm going to be totally out of the chorus here but this book isn't for me. I actually enjoed the the first 30-40% then it started to bore me, more and more untill I simply couldn't bear to read any more.
My main problem was with the sex: great, smokin' hot sex, but sometimes they go at it like rabbits without a plot or a real development in their relationship. Since this is supposed to be the beginnig of a love story, I simply couldn't believe it, it seemed more simple sex to me. I cou

A surprisingly good rocker romance. You've got a guy built like an Alpha male but with attentive, sweet personality and without the temper, a good female character who doesn't waste too much time on her worries and indecision, and a nice plot-line. I was extremely happy there wasn't too much angst, too.

3.5....could have been 4 but for a bit of a drag in the middle and a drop in editing/proofing then too. Loved the characters! Very much like real life on the road, which most rockstar reads aren't, IMHO.

Holy hell these two authors have done it again and I am now and forever a total Oblivion groupie. In the prequel Seduced, they lured me in but now they’ve got me hook, line, and sinker. I flat out loved this book even during the difficult times because that’s life, nothing worth having is easy and these five people have worked hard and are just beginning to see that sometimes you have to be smar

Oh Deacon always the flirt, "what's your name? I can tell you right now you're going to see a lot of me. I'm pretty much a black hole when it comes to food." I mean a really big flirt, "I'm more than happy to put you in my bed." What happens when you try to do the right thing for Deacon the boy drags you in bed, "Deacon," she said softly.

Taryn Elliott and Cari Quinn have done is again (per usual style). Rocked, well, quite literally, rocked. I loved Harper and Deacon, and Rocked brought all the magic I was hoping for with the prequel that didn't quite hook me.

These two together are a duo clearly just work. While I love their writing separately, together they are a force to be reckoned with.

Harper and Deacon just stole my heart. And I really hope we get to see more of them in future books, in more than just fleeting gl

I went into this book expecting your typical rock star novel. I was happily surprised with this story. This book was a looooonnnng read, but that meant their story was able to develop to an even deeper level. Deacon is the perfect combination of sexy musician, alpha male and a heart made of gold. He isn't your typical rock star who bangs every groupie that comes his way. And Harper isn't your typical girl who swoons around every famous musician. She grew up in the roadie life and her jaded view ...more

Listened to this on Audio and it was good, the characters suited the narrators voices there was bits of music between chapters it was really good.

Both Deacon and Harper are both mature characters. Despite this being a rockstar read Deacon is sensible and definitely not a manwhore like his other band mates he falls heart first for Harper, he just has to prove he's not like the rest.

Harper is a catering chef with the touring bands and grew up with groupie parents, she's seen how r

Totally devoured this book. I absolutely love the dynamic created among the band, and the way Harper fit right in was perfect.

It was an easy read, in that it kept my attention the whole way through, and I. Simply. Adore. Deacon. :).

The sexual tension at the start between Deacon and Harper was outdone only by the HOT culmination of their attraction.

The intra-band angsty stuff was very well written too; those silent stares among them were palpable, and their fighting was all too real.

4 stars. This was a very sweet rock star romance. I loved Deacon. Wow - what a sweetheart! He knows what he wants and he gets it. Harper was certainly bit as likable. Total commitment phobe. But she came through in the end. The book did drag a little for me. I thought their foreplay was a little long and I found myself speed reading between 30-60%. The inner dynamics of the band were pretty entertaining.

“He stilled at her laughter. It was rich and sexy, dark and playful. Something he’d never heard out of her mouth. His vision blurred for a second when she dragged his shirt up enough for their skin to touch. Then she gave up on getting the shirt off and latched on to his mouth again. He groaned as the heat of her skin blazed against his.” 1 likes
