4.5

I've learned some important life lessons over the years since Shaw's death, the main one being: love is for fools and I will NEVER be a fool again.

The second lesson: I will never understand the choice to take your own life.

The saying "Suicide doesn't end pain, it just passes it on to others" is a lesson I've found to be true the hard way.


Sigh..

I really don't know where to begin. Getting through all the emotions that this book magnified in me was one thing, but having to express those em

"...You're a survivor, Braun. Don't you ever forget it."

I'm speechless. I really am. I'm sitting here seriously trying to put into words how amazing this book is. How beautiful the journey was. I know I'm not going to do it justice but I'll try my best!

This is the second book in the pub fiction series. It's one hundred percent a standalone but you should read Levi's brother Ryker's story in book one just to meet Kat and Ryker. I loved My Minds Eye but On The Rocks? wow. It's just completely wor

For me this was a five + stars read

How do you put into words how much you love a book that has had such a profound effect on not only your heart but also your soul.

With great difficulty especially when you have experienced certain things first hand that are mentioned in this story.

So because of that I want to thank Gillian for writing such a beautiful story that highlighted so many serious issues with regards of mental health and suicide and the effects it has on so many people's lives.

“Trust me, Levi is the stuff that that female population most definitely memorizes and stores up in their minds and plays, on repeat, in their version of the ‘spank bank’ (what London and I refer to as the ‘Jill Till’) after taking in the sight of him. Hell, I myself will be playing him on repeat with Mr. Buz.”

Levi and Brauwyn is absolutely perfect for each other. And Emme is adorable.

I thought Ryker and Kat from My Mind's Eye was my favorite couple, but Levi and Brauwyn tops that.

I loved that Levi helped Brauwyn with stuff from her passed. He was so caring, protective, and just an over all amazing guy.

The relationship he had with Emme was so sweet. From the first scene when he met her was loving and adorable.

OMG! Brauwyn's Grandmother is the coolest. I want to be just like her when I grow up.

Dear Reader,

Mental Illness is a growing concern in our world today. On the Rocks is about surviving the aftermath of suicide, and believing in love again. Levi and Braunwyn’s love story is inspired by events that impacted the lives of people I care about deeply. I hope you love their journey.

The first page and I'm gutted. My eyes full of tears. And I'm thinking, how the hell Gillian can do this to me?! No warning. No... Just... Nothing. Well, okay there were. Some. But they were not enough. Because it felt like you opened the first page and she just eviscerates you and lefts you there seems with no way to salvage your shattared heart. Ever.

White Knights do exist.

The sign you have read a great book, not being able to put into verbal words the story you just read because you experienced every emotion humanly possible. On The Rocks is one of those 5 star stories. A story that will shatter your heart and rebuild it right along with the characters. You will laugh, smile, sigh, and cry your way through this entire book.

Braunwyn's reality will show you what strength, courage and a fighting spirit really are. How even with a past that wo

You know that feeling you get when you read an awesome book...and it completely guts you.... and you try for weeks after to find something to get you out of your book - induced coma?? You start a story and put it down after a few pages or chapters because. You. Just. Can't.
Well, Braunwyn & Levi's story completely woke me up. I fell in love with them. It isn't easy for me to relate to characters in books. I mean, I'm a book whore, don't get me wrong. I've had many a love affair with sexy bikers

Gillian Jones captures one hell of a love story in On the Rocks. Braunwyn Daniels is a young mother who has suffered more tragedy than anyone should have to endure at her age. She was lost and on the rocks for so many years, too afraid to let love in. Until fate, or maybe the guidance from her guardian angel brought her into Levi's life.
Levi had only one love in his life, his pub and making it the best it could be. Too busy with building his dreams and the faceless women to satisfy his sexual n

This is my first book by this author but I am definitely going to go back and read Ryker and Kat's story and keep my eye out for what else she has going on. I really enjoyed this story. It is so nice to read a story not so focussed on cheating and angst and all that annoying useless drama !! Having said that I do love useless drama I am a sucker for torture !! BUT again it was refreshing to connect to Levi and Braun for real reasons and having the pain and heartache be for much different reasons ...more

This book is about so much more than a couple finding love.
Braun has been living in the past, afraid to move forward and just life around her daughter Emme.
Levi is married to his pub, and one night stands are all he needs until she walked into his pub.
This is a story about experiencing real love for the first time and letting walls down.

Braun was pregnant when she walked into her bathroom to find her boyfriend Shawn dead at the hands of suicide.
She has lived with guilt, unanswered questions

What a wonderful book about moving on with your life after a serious tragedy. I loved reading about Braunwyn's journey to finding happiness again. This poor girl has not had it easy first by her parents and then losing someone she dearly loved while pregnant. We get to see her as she gets to let someone in and learn to trust in them and their love for them.

Braunwyn loses someone really important when she was like 18 or 19 and has been closed off since. She only trusts in her small circle of peop

What a book, On the Rocks was so well written I didn’t want to put it down. Gillian wrote us a story that held so much emotion, a story that delved into living and moving on after the ones we love choose to end their own lives, but we can’t give up. It shows the strength to pull through and to continue to live.

Review done for Hooked on Books

5 out of 5 stars

I didn’t think Gillian Jones could come up with another sexy, alpha male who was as awesome as Ryker, but she certainly did with his brother Levi.

Levi is the definition of a player: sexy, smart, and not wanting a relationship. Casual sex is all he wants and the only girl for him is his bar.

However, when Braunwyn is waiting for a job interview in his office, something in him sparks to life. He h
