I believe these books are stand-alone, but they do make much more sense to see all the characters as they develop through-out the series. Book 1 sets up the series and introduces all the major players. Skipping over Book 2 shouldn't ruin the flow of the series for you, but reading it might help to flesh out the story behind the series more as a whole. I hope that helps and thank you for your interest!!

It was good, but just too long. I kept thinking, ok this is the end.

But no. I'd still have several more chapters to go. So I'd sigh, and think ok, it shouldn't take too much longer. But it did. *sigh*

There were also editing errors, which pissed me off. If I'm paying freakin money for your product, then the least you could do is make freakin sure that it's in freakin perfect condition before you put it out there for freakin sale! GOD! It's just getting old and I'm sick of buying books that are u
I liked this a lot better than the first book in the series. The editing is still pretty bad, and the headhopping was quite awful, but I loved that these guys at least tried to communicate. No useless misunderstandings or wasted, relationship breaking angst. There was a lot of sex, but at least I really felt the chemistry, so it took a long time before I started skimming.
Well this was a very nice, very sweet, very steamy and especially very very long story. I liked it but like many others here, I think it was too long. It would have been nice if there had been a bit more interaction with other people, especially the other bandmembers. It was mostly about just them and what they were thinking. The same thoughts over and over again, and to me it got a bit boring. It's also very light on angst and drama. Sure there is a fight or two, but they are resolved within 2 ...more

It took at least two absences for me to finish this fucking long book and I was addicted to the yawns


I skipped a good number of fuck scenes
I skipped a conversation between Alex, Chase and Danni (ewwww)
I skipped the last five chapters

I had no idea why I finished this book, hell I had no idea why I gave it three stars

This was a well written enjoyably sweet story.
The main characters Coop and Jay, are a Rock Star and contractor respectively, and one of the things I have been enjoying in this series of books, is that the Rock star's have been the characters who have been more patient and consistent in their feelings.

Their relationship develops and any conflict is dealt with, by them discussing it ( No dramatic flouncing off and leaving )

There is some angst from outside factors, and you get to see characters fro

I really enjoyed this one. I loved Jayson and Cooper together. They were so sweet and hot. This really is a great series. I'm glad I finally decided to start reading it.
3.5 stars.
The best for me so far in this series.
The second half really was 4 stars for me but the dragging/repetitive first half, the many editing errors and inconsistencies really took the whole rating down.

This was a great read, loved the simple love story and how both Cooper and Jayson were so caring and gentle with each other's feeling, but then the sexy time gets thrown in and omg! If they weren't bonking each other's brains out they were whanging off thinking about each other and it was hot!

So whang, bang thankyou mam! Next please.....!

Once again thanks Di for the rec :)

This is the third installment in the Rock Gods series and they just keep getting better and better! At the end of the the second book, Take What You Want, it's clear that something is gonna start brewing with Jayson and Cooper. Oh, and it does.....

This is the first book that I have read from Ann and also from this series. This is book #3 in The Rock Gods series, and can be read as a stand alone.

I gave this book 5 stars.

This is Cooper and Jayson's story.
This is the first M/M story that I have ever read and I was a bit scared going into it. I didn't know what to expect, BUT OMG from the very first page I was like DAMN. This book is HOT!!! The love scenes were amazing. And they were sweet and loving and I felt like i was reading something

This book we get to visit all the characters from book # Fall For Me and book #2 Take What You Want. Ann did an amazing job with this story we get to meet and grow with Cooper and Jayson . Jayson lived most if his life on Martha's Vineyard living in The Closet afraid to come out with his sexuality, that is until he met Cooper Rand the drummer for one of the biggest bands out Ivory Tower.
Ann takes us on a journey with this book that will have you from page 1 . I highly recommend this 5 star read.

This book was great. I loved the intense instant connection between Cooper and Jayson. They were so good together and it was nice to see them so committed. Eve when they fought they didn't give up on each other and were determined to work it out. So rare in a relationship these days.

This series has been on my TBR pile for a while, and I've decided to start them. I like them, but I am finding them really hard to get through which is disappointing me.
I enjoyed both Cooper and Jayson and like them together, I am just finding that these books are quite long and I find myself losing interest half way through. I think I'll take a break before starting the next one.

At a party hosted by Alex, the lead singer of Ivory Tower, Cooper the drummer for the same band crashes into Chase's best friend Jayson. Coop and Jay are immediately attracted to one another and they share a steamy encounter on the beach, but although over the next couple of weeks the two men cannot get the other off their minds, they have to contend with the fact that they live on opposite coasts. Can they find a way to make it work?

I'll be honest, I've read this book or at least portions of i

Rock God, Cooper Rand. What can I tell you about this man? He is irresistible for starters, he's the fun guy to be around. His partying lifestyle is lively to say the least but there does become a time in everyone's life when they start to think about more. Until Cooper met Jayson the word 'more' didn't even enter his vocabulary.

Jayson Keller is Chase's best friend, you might have met him in book two 'Take What You Want' and if you haven't, boy do you need to read that story. Jayson met Cooper

I can't praise Ann or her series The Rock Gods enough. This has to be by far one of the best M/M series I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Ann doesn't just write a story she brings it to life. From the story lines that captivate you to the characters that pull you in each book feels like coming home to family. This time we visit Cooper Rand and Jayson Keller's story.

Cooper and Jayson first met in Take What You Want (The Rock Gods #2) where they had insta

Beautiful True Love Story!! Ann has done an amazing job with this series. I've come to love all the characters and the emotional bonds between them. The story line has been strong through the first 3 books and look forward now to reading the 4th. The sex is Hot and the relationships that have been formed are so real and romantic. This particular story involves Jayson. Chase's best friend, and Cooper, the drummer of the band, Ivory Tower. They meet at a party that Alex, the leader of the band, ha ...more
Loved it! This novel takes place over a year, beginning with the party at Alex's Martha's Vineyard house. We get to see bits of Alex, Danni and Chase's implosion and Alex's accident from Cooper's and Jayson's POV. There wasn't so much of it that it felt like I was rereading the same story at all. Just a hint of it all.

Jayson and Cooper navigate a relationship, pretty well, actually, for a couple of guys that have never really attempted such a thing. Neither were perfect and both of them made mis

Really more like 3.5. I liked this one better than the first in the series but this author needs to get a freaking editor. Seriously, I don't know how much they cost but the amount of errors is ridiculous. So here we have Cooper from the band and Jayson, Chase's friend. They meet at a party, start seeing each other, have some smexy know. Neither thinks it's a serious relationship until it is. These two actually talk to each other so any misunderstandings were resolved fairly quickly ...more

This was a nice somewhat unexpected book. There isn't a huge amount of angst and drama. There isn't any worry about "OMG the rockstar is GAY!!!!" or trouble with the press. It actually turned out to be a somewhat sweet romance with small bumps along the way to the HEA for them. There were a few over the top moments where I was thinking "overreact much" but they didn't lead to huge fights or breakups so they in the end didn't ruin my enjoyment of the book. It is a little long but I found myself e ...more
These have always been good books. A good series, they are full of emotion and great sex. The characters are a little difficult to tell apart. They all seem to have close to the same personalities. I will work the male readers that this is more of the female-type gay book. All romance and, babe and I love yous. I happen to like those so it was all good for me. As with all of the Rick a God series, they could use a little editing because they are a touch too long. Don't get me wrong, ai do enjoy ...more

Gave up at 86% I found it boring and the communication very sappy (who talks like that every time they have a conversation) I absolutely adored the first two books there was loads going on and things to work through but this couple were together from very early on and have been way to happy for way too long.. I need a bit of drama to keep me interested and the family issue was not enough to keep me interested .. Not sure who book 4 will be about but wheleand could have a more interesting story
Valerie ❈M/M Romance Junkie❈
Though very enjoyable, this book jumped the shark somewhere around 57%. It was truly 200 pages too long. I enjoyed their meeting. I enjoyed watching them fall in love, but the rest was just a little OTT dramatic that was unnecessary to the story IMO. I will admit to skipping book 2, so I would be interested to know the timeline between book 2 & 3 because of situations involving the triad from book 2. Overall, a good book.

This was another great story from Ann. The main characters, Jayson and Cooper, meet at their mutual friend's party. Unfortunately their lives are at opposite ends of the country and appear to be in an impossible situation to have a relationship. But Cooper can't get Jayson out of his mind and takes Jayson on a private jet for a weekend in New York. Although each of the guys doesn't define their relationship, both have fallen in love. So now what?

Ann Lister's Rock Gods series totally rocks. I've read them all and while Dagger is always my fav, Cooper is stunning in this. The drummer with the biggest heart! Jayson is his perfect mate. So, if you want to know their whole story, you need to read this one! Sexy from start to finish!

My fav in the series thus far

I love the instant rush these two got from each other and the fact that they both refused to walk away and apologized when they reacted poorly.

This one is my favorite in the series thus far.
