When Hailey crashes a Half-Life after party, she expects to find the bastard who knocked up her little sister. Instead she meets the sexy front-man who agrees to give her access to his crew if she gives him access to her body.

All Lock demands in return is three days of complete control over the Sunday School teacher. With a contract, because he’s been burned before. One mi

1 sad lonely star... :(

Should have been titled Three Nights of Unbelievable No-Plot or something. Despite the promising blurb, Three Nights with a Rock Star fell flat.

The heroine went from being a Sunday school teacher with almost no experience with sex to a groupie in a blink of an eye. Not only that she signed stupid contract with a stupid entitled rock star. And then they have sex, sex, sex, sex, and yup, you guessed it -- more sex.

Her reasons for doing it was just lame. Her sister's stor

Utterly indulgent smutty smut with a side of smut :)

This was a lot more erotica than I expected. Not sure exactly why I assumed it would be different. The level of erotic content was just more than I had prepared for. Menage and some mild BDSM themes took me by surprise. I'm okay with a menage scene before a couple is committed. This one sort of felt awkward, though, in that there were some blurry lines that I felt should have been clarified a bit. It was very sexy, that's for sure!! It was just

Three Nights with a Rock Star fell into the okay zone for me. Basically, the story line entails an overprotective big sis infiltrating America's biggest rock band, Half-Life, and trying to figure out which bozo knocked up her sister.

But, as luck would have it, she gets caught by the band's front man, Locke, and he gives her an ultimatum: three days of unlimited access to your body in exchange to go snooping around my band mates and play detective. luck would have it, everything isn't

Caution my review may contain slight spoilers. (Given free copy by author for my honest opinion.)
This novel could have been so much more.It started off great, but the character development was minimal and scenes were not well done and choppy at best.
Hailey is this responsible, mother-like character who is on a mission to find out who her little sister got pregnant by.
Now I had some major issues with the story line. It sounds like Hailey didn't try hard enough to get the truth from her sister pl

I am a hard-core rock star lover. They really don't have to do much to make me weak in the knees and drooling…what can I say, I’m helpless to their powers. While Three Nights with a Rock Star really had me in a lot of ways there were just a few things that left me...wanting more.

Oh lads. Lads. LADS.

I'm trying to figure out how to write about how awful this book was without personally insulting the author(s). So I'll do a series of points and you can come to your own conclusion.

* Chloe spent a summer selling merchandise for a rock band, Half Life.
* Chloe is pregnant and will not tell Hailey who the father is.

"Follow me, Hailey. Let me lead you down into the belly of the beast."

Long story short. Hailey is on a mission to find her sisters baby daddy and make him step up to the plate.

She has looked after Chloe her whole life after having deadbeat parents, and needs the dad to step in. Chloe won’t say who it is, but as she has just come home from a tour with Half Life (she sold merch) Hailey decides to start there.

What she meets however is Locke. The lead singer of Half Life.

Three Nights with a Rock Star is another book penned by a writing duo, Amber Lin and Shari Slade. This is the first book I've read by either of them. What we have here is a highly erotic romance with a rock star and let me tell you this book amps up the steam factor. It's wickedly hot!

I did like the book, there were just some things that didn't mesh for me. It was a quick read, less than 200 pages, and that's what kind of bothered me. I think there were parts added that didn't need to be and ot

Review posted at: Swept Away By Romance

Three Nights with a Rock Star is a SIZZLING read that tipped over my heat level meter. There were many passionate and oh so kinky moments that had me all flustered. The great story line kept me interested and the pages turning fast and furious.

The characters were also done well, my favorite being the heroine, Hailey. I loved how this prim and proper young woman was able, with the help of Lock, the hero, to bring out her secret desires of having down and di

This book was always going to be go big or go home. I don't star reviews, but give THREE NIGHTS WITH A ROCK STAR a devil's horn while also waving a lighter. After reading...I'm still ready to rock with Half LIfe.

This book lived up to all my expectations. Slade & Lin together are the awesomesauce. Much of the book is steam-coming-out-your-ears hot, but then moments of aching emotion creep up and wallop you over the head. I don't want to give away any plot spoilers, so I'll just say the characteri
Three Nights with a Rock Star is a total fucking mess of shame, nasty(ish) sex, and messed up relationships with no real purpose at all. I don't consider myself a prude, but some of what was described I found nauseating, laced as it was with the desire to control, to hurt and be hurt, use and be used, each burdened with shame. There was a strange mmf threesome scene in which it was made clear that the other man was unrequitedly in love with our so-called "hero" and seemed to crave being degraded ...more

I’m kind of torn on this book and whether I liked it or not. As I read, the story did keep my attention. It was interesting, sexy and I’m a total groupie for the rock star romances, especially when the rock star falls for a woman who is totally opposite of the typical fan. I pretty much finished it in one sitting, so score 1 for Three Nights With a Rock Star!

This wasn't a bad book at all. I enjoyed the ride it took me on as I read. The issue? It is like all the rest. It could've been slightly different because of certain events, but I think those story lines got swallowed up by the sex.

The book was a typical boy meets girl, has no intention of falling for her, has amazing sex, gets to know girl, falls in love, and sweeps girl off her feet. The end. Throw in some BDSM and a girl who is a "church mouse" on the outside, but a freak on the inside and yo

Lots and lots of erotic sex. Just didn’t work for me.

The sex was more mechanical than emotional. I prefer sex scenes where someone’s desire is part of the action, reaction, and words. Here the sex is mostly do this, do that, oh it worked. I was bored with the sex. I would have liked more emphasis on characters and the relationship. It’s hard to say why this didn’t work for me. I stopped reading at 76 pages and then jumped to the last 20 pages. It’s about 2/3 the length of a regular novel.

First let me say that based on the few reviews I read about this book, I was all set to be disappointed but boy was I wrong. I don't know what book these people read, but it's not what I read! LOL
This was really steamy and sexy read with well developed characters that you wouldn't think would fit, but Amber Lin made them fit! You have the lead singer of a rock group paired with a responsible 'do the right thing all the time' gi

I'm spoiled

This was definitely a rockstar story. It was one we expect from the boys in the band...depravity, sense of entitlement, sex. Sex, sex, sex. Probably 75% of this story was sex. For me it was overdone especially after I've read so very many rockstar stories of an excellent caliber! It isn't bad but it isn't great and at times seemed rather forced. I like a story and it's characters to be developed. This did not do that.

This book didn't turn out as good as I was hoping. I loved the concept of the story but was disappointed with what I actually got. I would have loved for there to have been more of a romance between Hailey and Loch, they fell in love in 3 day which way too quickly for my liking. The majority of this book is sex, very hot sex, but sex nonetheless- the story needed more substance. There was one part of the story which I thought was unnecessary- Loch and Krist(band mate) h

I can't resist taking a chance on a rock star read, I'm just drawn to them, they are my addiction. Fortunately, I read the 2nd book in this series, One Kiss With A Rock Star, first. Sometimes the sequels are better because the author gains some experience and writes better, or maybe the characters are more developed and some questions get answered. Because of my accidental reading out of order I knew some details that I would not have known going into this story. Because I enjo

I expected something more. Trying to make sense of the story but I was immediately put off by the main character (Hailey) who agreed for her body to be used for three nights, by Lock, the leader of the band Half-Life. She let him used her just so she can roam around the groupie headquarters to find out who knocked off her sister. And take note, both sisters were working in a Sunday school group or something. (Oh, and the sex scenes were over the top, I wasn't really feeling it). ...more

DNF! I stopped at 62%. The book just didnt work for me. It wasn't believable and I felt like it jumped around too much. The synopsis made no mention of the m/m situation and that is not my thing.

There was not much development of the characters which left me feeling confused at some points.

Although I haven't come across to many books about musicians, I'm pretty sure Three Nights with a Rock Star is slightly above the average—good but not great. Despite the almost non-existent and predictable plot (but what can you do in a few days' time frame of the story, right?), I really enjoyed reading about the beginning of relationship between Lock and Hailey. ...more

This book starts us out with Hailey Miller. She and her sister Chloe, raised fatherless, and a mother that has done nothing but trash their names and abandon them when Hailey was just eighteen years old.

An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.

I've been glomming rock star romance (singers, musicians, blues (not rock), pretty much if it's music-related, I've been at least curious. So, when I saw this available on Netgalley and Amber Lin's name was attached to it, I thought: "Why not?". I've had the pleasure of reading some of Lin's other books and I enjoyed them.

Three Nights with a Rock Star is hot, sweet and nudges right up to the edge of believability. I mean, a Sunday school teacher and a rock star? Who f*ck within an hour of meeting? Yeah, I wasn't convinced when I picked it up. However, Shari Slade and Amber Lin totally deliver on all the promises made by the inherent sexiness of rock stars.

I am still a bit unsure how I feel about THREE NIGHTS WITH A ROCK STAR. Yes, I did enjoy reading it, but I also had some trouble to connect with the characters, and sometimes struggled with the many perspectives given in this book. This altogether made it a bit hard to follow the storyline which results in me needing additional time for reading and finishing it.

So this is the first book in a series about the rock band Half-Life and centers around Lock, front man of the band, and Hailey, whose si
