By the looks of some other reviews, I guess I'm in the minority on this one. I felt like everything about this book went from zero to sixty in the blink of an eye. From childhood to adulthood; from a divorce to a rekindled romance; from hello to doing it in the grass to living together to pregancy to death to fighting to making up to the baby's coming right now.... There was no real build up to anything - everything just happened. It made the story come off choppy to me. Even the character's con ...more

Looking through the other reviews for this story, I'm definitely in the minority. There was obviously something the other readers really liked and I either overlooked or it just didn't resonate with me. From the beginning, I had problems with the simple and stilted sentences/dialogue. The writing didn't feel very developed or mature to me. Although the writing was more young adult, the subject matter was too serious to be written so lightly. The domestic abuse, spousal rape, and then Bobby's vio ...more

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this book. It struck every emotion in me. I laughed, cried several times, I even had the big ugly cry.
Bobby had me fanning myself and falling in love with him at every turn. He has this endless love for everyone in his life, his band mates included. They are a tight group of badass, hot, tattooed and pierced guys. They know how to push each others buttons and it is hilarious!
June is a tough woman and she does not take crap from anyone. She will tell you how it is. I love th

I think this review pretty much defines some of this author's books.
For what I gather from reviews it could be used for her latest release too. Go figure.

There were so many things about this book that bothered me.

*Everything happens at warp speed. Nearly every thing that happens is way too rushed. The dialogue felt stilted and unnatural.

*Bobby is a psycho. Everything about him just screamed RED FLAG, RUN!!!! He uses drugs, is abusive (multiple times) to June and generally acts like a crazy person. Wanting to bruise your previously abused girlfriend so everyone will know who she belongs to? RUN!!!! He's known that he loves June (his muse) since he

Okay, I saw this title and thought,
How in the world did I miss this
book. I love K. Webster, so of course
I immediately clicked.

I was vastly disappointed. I could go
on and on and ramble and rant about
everything that did not work for me,
but I am going to condense it in a
few short observations.
1. Bobby was a douche
2. June was a doormat
3. June escapes abusive relationship
4. Bobby our hero, becomes the
abusive relationship.
4. Timing was off, everything
went super fast
5. Not believable in any realm
I struggled with this, the premise looks brilliant - a rocker love story with a long lost friend ... sign me up. Sadly this just did not work for me, I found the writing to be stilted and dare I say it, immature.

There was quite a lot going on in the story, but I felt it never really took off. Very little plot and character development. June started off as a doormat with her first marriage and the way Bobby was with her was just as bad, and she clearly didn't learn her lesson the first time roun

The idea of the book was great, but the execution poor. I was looking forward to seeing June become a strong woman after getting out of her abusive marriage, but all she ended up doing was substituting one arsehole for another. Granted, Bobby wasn't physically abusive, but verbally, very much so! And she just took it again and again like the doormat that she was.

What is it about Rock stars that makes me all HOT and TURNED ON?

I think it is just the vibe they give however when you add a little country to the mix it takes it to a whole new level of HOT! K.Webster made my heart swell with this book it is such a beautiful story. It made my heart fill with joy and seriously made my Friday even better!

Staying in the middle with a 3

I thought it was good, but not great.

It came across as a bit simple and fast. I felt it was- oh, here's a major life problem, let's just quickly solve it with a tidy, perfect bow. It was a little TOO perfectly tied together at times. Would have liked to see Bobby work more to get June. I praised her for her strength early on, but honestly, Bobby started showing some of the same traits as Markwayne, yet she kept taking him back. It didn't make sense to me.

Rock Country by author K. Webster is a refreshing novel. The written flow was wonderful, and I love country novels, I need to read more like these. I enjoyed reading along with the characters struggles and accomplishments, flash forward in time. I thought the editing was pretty good, and overall this is actually quite a short story that won't eat up your time and can be read and enjoyed in one sitting. I would recommend for a light read.

This book was like listening to a country song. It was sweet, tender and all about true love. Bobby and June were best friends. When Bobby left June never forgot the friendship and love she had for him. When circumstances bring Bobby back and right back into the path of June love ignites once again. Although I loved Bobby there were times I wanted to reach into this book and give him a good shake. If you are looking for a sweet love story about friends discovering love with little drama this is ...more

I enjoyed this book and was sad when it ended. I found all of the characters entertaining. Bobby's bandmates especially made me giggle. Bobby was more messed up than I thought. His drug use and reactions while on drugs made the story more interesting and dramatic. The lies that June's ex told gave it a nice twist, too! Bobby was a little too emotional of a guy for me. I tend to roll my eyes and think "What a drama queen this guy is" when he cries too often for my liking. Overall, I had my eyes g ...more

A quick read, fast paced read. Emotional roller coaster ride for the characters. Well written, the story is not my usual story line up. Will probably read more of this series.

What a douche, Bobby, the hero was. Can you say, "doormat". Unbelievable, while the story was good the characters were pathetic. The hero was verbally abusive and childish. The heroine left an abusive relationship for a another. Ugh, don't know how I feel about this book.
Going to read the next book in the series, I'm hoping the characters are better. If not, this is the end of the line for me.

The story she told here is so beautiful. It’s the story of two people who were always meant to be but an unfair decision to split them up was made for them.

I met K Webster at the Denton Author Event in August and immediately added her Vegas Aces books to my Kindle…and I was not disappointed!

Rock Country has some intense situations like almost rape, drug use which leads to very inappropriate actions, redneck parking lot fights, and dying loved ones, but it also has hot sex, an undeniable love, and humor. Trust me, you definitely won’t find a boring moment. Maybe a moment or three that you want to beat a certain rock star, but you’ll definitely keep

First I need to say that I LOVE Kristi Webster and the books I've read from her have been absolutely freaking fantastic.

I totally love Bobby and June. A couple that have known each other all their lives and grew up together up until his parents got divorced and he moved away with his mother. June was heartbroken because she didn't hear from him in years and decided to move on with her life. She got married and was living a depressing and loveless marriage. Her husband was a real ass and he woul

Work it. Tap it. Yeah.

I am not really into all the Rock Star books. I like them. But I don't swoon at the thought of them. This one, however, makes me very happy. He was not just a rock star... he is a good old country boy turned rock star. Big difference.

June and Bobby were neighbors and best friends when they were growing up. Just as they got old enough to think it might be something more, Bobby is ripped away and never seen again. June still keeps us wit
