Edgewood - Show StopperFinally the conclusion to the Rock & Release trilogy. Show Stopper was one of those that had me emailing author Riley Edgewood wondering when the hell I was going to get the ARC because I needed it. Starstruck ended in one helluva cliffhanger and I was angry – not at Riley (okay, a little at Riley) but at Cassidy. I won’t tell you why because that would spoil book 2 if you haven’t read it, but you really should read it. Especially since you can now get all three parts of the story in one nov ...more

Show stopper

Squeeeee! The last instalment in the 'Rock and Release' series and I got my greedy little hands on a arc. Many many thanks to the awesome author!

Show Stopper picks up where we were left in book two; Cassidy has taken a chance and ventured on a tour that she's hoping will be the escape she's been looking for this summer.

Her escape starts out hot, seriously hot! I'm just going to be straight up honest... I loved Luca! So while this is a touchy situation and

That was a very satisfying ending to this series!

Even if I didn't agree with a lot of what "Cassie" was doing (and wanted to throttle her), I could appreciate her reasons WHY. Grief is a powerful force and it makes people to do really stupid things sometimes.

All of Cassidy's poor decisions catch up to her, leaving her no one else to blame but the face in the mirror. She accepts responsibility, fixes what she can and hopes for a chance to redeem herself. Like it's two predecessor's, Show Stoppe

Riley Edgewood you now have a life long fan! I love these books! I recommend getting all three books at one time because you will lose your mind if you can’t start Show Stopper as soon as you finish Starstruck. I read VIP in a few days and wasn’t sure how I felt about the story and where it would go, but as soon as I finished Starstruck I was hooked and begging for more.

Show Stopper made me laugh and made me cry. I have now read all three books a second time to enjoy watching Cassidy come into h

I simply didn't want this book to end. High emotions run through the third installment of SHOW STOPPED. And I need more Gage in my life.

Cassidy had to learn through her mistakes and realize that no matter how far she goes, her problems still follow her. She has to resolve things on her side :)

This third installment had everything I wanted and even more. It`s stil hot, hot, hot. The writing is still gorgeous and on top of it, we finally see Cassidy facing her past.

Highly recommended!

Really surprising ending, absolutely the best part of the book!

**I was provided with a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review**

When we last left Cassidy in Starstruck she was forced with a big decision...and she made it...she left Gage and went on tour with Luca James. But every day spent without Gage... her guilt fights her excitement, and she tries each day to push that away and find her escape. Her escape? Get lost in Luca James. And it gets hot QUICK. Besides the amazing sex, Cassidy is trying to blend into the scene, but the over-the-top

En serio necesito sacar toda la frustración que me generó el largo viaje en estas tres partes...

▪ Spoilers, spoilers everywhere ▪
Casi se resume todo con esto: Nuestra protagonista, Cassidy, es casi tan egoísta, bitch, whore, desgraciada, y pone cuernos como la siempre malamente recordada Harper, de Taking Chances.

Me hartaron sus jodidos "Luca James.".... I just left Luca James; I'm on my own on Luca James' tour bus; Luca James is bringing me on the road; I can't believe I just slept with Luca J
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

There are some series in which the first book grabs you and pulls you in and the rest of the books in the series just don't measure up. This isn't one of those series.

I loved this third installment in the Rock & Release series. At the end of the second book I was pleading for Cassidy not to get on the bus, but she did. And I found myself mumbling "told you so" or "that's what happens" often throughout this third

I could not put this series down! I loved every bit of it. I found it real and refreshing and I loved Cassidy and her raw emotions. There were a few things that kinda bugged me, mainly the constant repeating of inner dialogues in Cassidy's head. Quite often she said something at least three times in a row usually when it involved sex. But even with the constant repeating of words I just really fell for Gage and Cassidy. I loved Show Stopper and how it finished. I thought her experience with Luca ...more

Perfect conclusion to the series. Made me a bit teary at a few different parts (the cemetery scene in particular), a bit ragey at others (would've loved for Cassidy to finally get to kick Jared in the nuts, but Gage did a pretty good job at breaking his face at least), and a lot swoony. Loved this series!

I really enjoyed this series. Oh I knew Luca was gonna turn out to be a jerk. Ugh I don't like him at all. I'm so glad Cassidy finally came to her senses about Gage. Oh sweet Gage he is the best ever. I'm not sure I could have ever forgiven Cassidy. But Gage realizes that he loves her too. He has held heal her after her brothers death. He saved her when nobody else could. Great story!

So So good!

I read all 3 books in less than 24 hours.

Such a great story, love all the ups and downs, I wanted to punch Cassidy and hug her at the same time. I shared her grief and her happiness.

Such a great story! and can we please drool over Gage a little?

Definitely recommended for those looking for a steamy story with a feel-good ending.
