Warning: Have tissues handy

Jace's story was, in my opinion, the most emotional in this series so far. Several POVs provide a roller coaster of emotions that had me on the verge of a snot fest so early on.

Jace is not new to love. He found it at a young age, but Sydney made the sacrifice to let him live his dream. Years later they are reunited under the most emotionally difficult circumstance and from there, this book took over my emotions and kept me captivated until the end.

"Family that's scary, loud, crass, loving, caring, and nosy. A family that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world."

The seventh in the Rockstar Series you may think what is left but let me tell you this story will knock your socks off. It's filled with angst, mind blowing decisions where there are no better options, selfless sacrifices that are oh so selfish but the right thing to do. It's a perfect mix of loss and new beginnings that left me feeling very emotional. Told in multiple POV I thi

WOW! I am not sure how to write this review; this is such a fabulous book. It has so much heart, there is so much pain and loss yet at the same time, there is so much hope and love that it fuels this story. Jace thought his life was complete until he received a frantic 911 call one day that changed it forever -- Jace found out he had young daughter he never knew about and that her mother, his childhood sweetheart is dying fast. This is just mind-blowing to Jace and he is reeling from all of it. ...more

Jace is such a sweet baby daddy, I loved him in this book.

The beginning of Kadence is so bittersweet, heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

After 7 years Jace finds out he's a dad from a secret pregnancy and that his teen sweetheart and love of his life is dying and has hours left to live all in one breath.

Sydney left and didn’t tell Jace she was pregnant so Jace could persue his career, a selfless and selfish act in one.

Such a sad beginning to the story which brought a tear to my ey

I received Kadence as an ARC in return for a honest review.

Kadence is the 7th book in Anne's Rockstar Series and it is definitely a different pace than the others. At the end of Lullabye, Jace's story was hinted at and we were left wondering what was going on. Kadence picks up with Jace returning home after receiving a message to come home from his high school sweetheart, Sydney.

Kadence centers around Jace, his daughter Kadence, and Summer. Summer is a very strong and amazing person who loves th

This book is part of the Rockstar Series, a series that is amazing in itself. However, this book is different, in a few ways, and the author points that out in an authors note at the beginning. I don't even know how to express or put into words, how to describe this book! If you've read this rock out author, Anne Mercier, before, then you know how hard it is!

Kadence is the first book I have ever read of Anne Mercier and she is now added to my MUST read. Kadence is book 7 of the Rockstar series, you don't need to read the first 6 books to understand what's going on, as I clearly haven't since this is my first every book of Anne's but I will be going back and I will be reading books 1-6 and any other book in this series. I think you should read the first books as well. If this one is this good, I can only imagine how g

Multiple First-Person POVs. Very unique, to me.
This is the first book I've ever read by Anne Mercier and must admit, I'm floored. I do not know if it's her normal style, but KADENCE is written from the perspectives of not only her lead couple, but also Kadence and Sydney. It starts out with a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking scenario and continues to twist and break your heart for another 2
Get your tissues at the ready, this book will break your heart and then slowly tape it back together again. As always Anne leaves me wanting more! I loved the bond Kadence had with Xander and Ethan. When Kadence finally realised that her mommy wasn’t ever coming back, that scene ripped my heart out and left me ugly crying. I wanted to punch Jace’s parents for what they did and I was cheering Jace on when he put them in their place. I really liked that we had four different points of view in this ...more

Kadence is emotional, beautiful, funny, sexy and heartbreaking all rolled into one delicious rockstar package! This is Jace's story but the true star of the book is Kadence, the 6 year old daughter he never knew about. She steals the show---she's adorably hilarious and provides the perfect lightness to a story that has many emotional ups and downs. That's not to say you won't be crying your eyes out. Readers should definitely heed Mercier's warning at the beginning of the book to have tissues at ...more

Out of the blue, Jace Warner gets a message informing him that his high school sweetheart, the only girl he ever really loved, is dying.

Despite the fact that it's been years since they had any kind of contact, and even longer since they've seen each other, he rushes, without a moment's hesitation, to be by her side. In an instant, all those feelings and emotions that go along with a first love like that come rushing back as they're reunited without any realistic hope of rekindling that flame tha

this book started with absolute heartbreak. I mean, chapter after chapter of your heart ripping out and shattering on the floor. and tears. lots of tears.

then in walks summer. this is where it gets a little off for me. I've never read Anne before, so all these characters were new to me. I felt like I kind of needed to read previous stories to understand who was who and things they could "do".

This has been one of my favorite rockstar series. And I have to say, this is my favorite book so far. I had read that that author was nervous because this book is different than the others. And it is different. But in a good way. While this is a series about rockstars, their music and off stage antics. This book was about the heart. About love and loss. A first love you'll never forget, a new love that takes your breath away and a love so deep for a person you never knew existed, but have just m ...more

This series is definitely one of the best series that I have ever read.
I normally don’t take this long to read any book but I haven’t been well and I made an appointment to see an opthomologist so I didn’t want to strain my eyes until I saw the doc. But when this book came out I couldn’t resist I bought it and it sat on my kindle for a week and I couldn’t handle it. It’s Anne’s book how could I not read it!!!! so I decided to read it but take it slow. It’s never been so hard to put a book down.

There isn’t a book of Anne Mercier’s that I haven’t read and when we received the chance to review it for the blog I fought my way to the front to get my hands on it.

I honestly have pretty mixed feelings about this book. I love the story line. It's really cute and I couldn't wait to get started reading this one. Once I did, though, I had kind of a hard time connecting with it. That had more to do with the writing style than anything, I think, and that's always a personal preference thing. I don't dislike the author's writing style. I just don't connect with it super well and that makes things a little harder for me to read. I also had a bit of trouble connec ...more

I have been eagerly awaiting Jace’s story since I first heard it was coming and was excited when I was able to get my grubby little hands on a copy.

I absolutely loved this book! This is my favourite book in Anne’s Rockstar series, and Jace has become my fave main male so far.
As with the other books in the series, you’ve got the hot, down to earth, alpha male dirty talker who also has a hidden sweet side. But Jace is so much more, which becomes apparent very quickly when he drops everything and flies to his first love and finds out he has a 6yr old daughter.

Anne Mercier has been a top favorite, go-to author for me since I met her boys in the Rockstar series. And since then, there has been no looking back for me.

Hmm. .

This is a difficult book for me to review, but I'm going to do my best. I have read every book and novella from the Rockstar series, and have loved every one of them to extreme. I love all the characters, their personalities, and the way they've developed as the series has progressed. Anne Mercier has an amazing thing going with this series.
That being said, I can't honestly say I loved everything about book 7, Kadence. The first part of the book was written with such care and detail, but a
