He holds me captive with his brilliant blue eyes.

His crooked smile melts me every time.

His voice wraps around me when he sings.

His words break through and dive straight to my heart.

Dash Ford, lead singer of Redemption, is unlike any man I’ve ever met and I'm drawn to not only his lyrics but the man behind the voice.

But I am broken—beyond broken.

I had no intention of falli

4.5 rock star voodoo stars!

My love for rocker romances brought this book to my attention, even though I had never heard of the author before. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. I got much more than expected once I started reading.

The main characters Dash (sexy lead singer in Redemption band) and Jules (journalist for a food/wine magazine) are both broken, living in darkness. Fortunately Jules has a strong support system in the form of her two best friend

I hate DNF’ing books…I really do. I don’t take it lightly either, but if I am cringing every other page and rolling my eyes on the others…then I know I can’t force myself to keep going or it’s just going to get worse. I love rock star books and from the sounds of the synopsis of Sex, Desires & Rock n Roll I thought I was in for a great book…but it just didn’t work for me.

Books written in third person are just not for me... At all.
I feel that it should be said in the synopsis along with if your book is going to end in a cliffhanger. Or is going to be part of a series.
Give the reader an option weather or not they want to read your book and avoid any negative reviews because of it.
It's actually one of my pet-peeves in books. I like to be fully informed of what I'm getting into before reading a book.
With all that being said... I just don't think this book was for me

I give this book 5 rockin' stars!!! It would be more, but that's the highest Goodreads go, lol.


I absolutely LOVED this frickin book. I knew I would, because I have enjoyed all of Michelle's writing.

I just truly adored Jules. I won't say Julia, because well only the asshat called her that, and she hates it. But I guess I could call her Sunshine, because that will work as well, coming from a beautiful mouth, such as Mr. Rock star hims

Sex, Desires, and Rock n’ Roll by Michelle Lee was not like most of the Rocker Romances out there. Unlike many, this book wasn’t full of angst or unrealistic drama. The issues Dash and Jules – the main characters – faced were very much real-life situations that many people live through on a daily basis.

Jules had finally escaped a horrible nightmare – her abusive ex-boyfriend. To say she was emotionally broken would be an understatement. Her ex, Blake, robbed her of any and all confidence and se

Ok stop reading this book if you have not read the one before it. Although this book doesn’t outright state that it is a second in a series I would highly recommend that you read the first book Sex, Desires & Rock n’ Roll first. I started this book and felt I was missing something so went back and looked and realised there was a book prior to this that sets the whole story up really well and gave me a really good understanding of who everyone was and why

Jules was a broken woman trying to take her life back and regain her confidence. I enjoyed her strength and determination. Being in her head when she met Dash and had all of those wildly conflicting emotions was quite an experience for me as a reader.
Things almost seemed a bit too fast with Jules and Dash at times, but the storyline itself had pulled me in and, despite the speed, I wanted to know more about her, him, them, her past, and where this thing between them could go.

Sex, Desires, & Rock N Roll by Michelle Lee is the first book in the Redemption Tour Series. My initial thought of this romance was that it wasn't going to be your typical rocker romance. Dash was so much more than a musician. He captured my soul within the first pages of meeting him. The tempo of the story was utterly perfect. This book shot right to my heart in so many ways.


We meet Jules in the very beginning of the book she is on her way with her closest friends to a Redemption concert.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this story, but Michelle Lee managed to suck me into it and had me silently screaming when I got to the last page.

Jules is a survivor. She may not have the ability to see past what her ex, Blake, did to her. But she survived. I was a little worried when she began this rather intense relationship with Dash, but it became very obvious, very quickly, that Dash gives her the mechanism to pull herself out of the dark spiral she finds herself falling into. He becomes

Sex, Desires, and Rock N Roll by Michelle Lee

You go through the book reading from Jules point of view so you get to know a lot about her. There is violence but only in flashbacks. And as for sex scenes there are a couple, but Dash and Jules are a new couple so it isn’t a prominent part of the book.

Michelle Lee has done an amazing job on writing Sex, Desires, and Rock n Roll. I will start off by saying this is the first book I have ever read from this author but I was thoroughly engrossed in it.

I love reading Indie authors as I find their stories very easy to relate to and Michelle Lee does not disappoint!

Sex, Desires & Rock n' Roll by Michelle Lee is the first book in her new series Redemption Tour. This book has a slight cliffhanger ending so be prepared. But the story is so worth the ending.

Jules is recovering from emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her ex, Blake. She still has anxiety and panic attacks and lives a very calm, sheltered life as a wine and restaurant journalist for one of the bigger magazines in that genre. When her best friends drag her to a rock concert of all th

I love Dash. I love how he feels about what happened to his sister-not the guilt but the love and desire to protect and be there. I love his unassuming way and how he is with Jules. I love that even though he is a rock star he still is centered and grounded. He is a rogue when needed but a gentleman through and through. I didn’t expect that ending I expected the ex at some point but not that ending. Wow…I am happy though that Jules reached inside herself and pulled the light and didn’t succumb t ...more

This book had me hooked from page one, it was just what I needed to read and so different to what I read in the past and it hits home that this does happen and can happen to anybody.

Julie or Jules as we get to know her is scared and for a long time she didn't know what to do her best friends. Val and Tracey know why she like that way, so one night they take her to see a new rock band called Redemption. Dash is the lead singer for the band and carries some demons from his past that mirror Jules.

DNF chapter 7 and I was done. 2.5 stars and that's pushing it NIcely.! What can I say, this book was slightly on the lame side. I pushed through it but I just found it extremely unrealistic. I think sometimes writers over dramatise a problem and think that it gives good substance for a story line. I can understand the whole panic attack thing but Jules was just too vulnerable for this type of story. I mean really, a rocker leaves his after party of his first huge home show to look after a girl h ...more

I will start off saying Wow, this author really knows how to play with your raw emotions really well, in fact I didn't know if I wanted to cry one minute or scream the next. The damn cliffhanger at the end really has my mind racing and wanting to read the next one asap. I cant believe how wonderful the story is. I got hooked right away and that was nothing compared to what I felt towards the end of the story, Yes I want more!! Yes I recommend that everyone read this story.

This has it all, Sexy rockers, hot sex, a story that I just couldn't put down, a girl with a horrific back story.. This story was told very well. The more I read of this story the more of it wanted.

I absolutely adored this book. When Jules, meets Dash, the lead singer of Redemption, sparks fly immediately. Each of them have their own skeletons and are broken, each in their own way. Their love for each other compels them to help each other recover from their pasts and begin living in the present. Their story will have you riveted and when it ends, believe me, you will be clamoring for more!
