What a wonderful ending to an enjoyable series.

To be honest, I was surprised how much I truly enjoyed this book. I was a little concerned that I wouldn't fully connect with this particular love story considering how ambivalent I have been toward Abe's character throughout the series. I shouldn't have worried. There is a reason Nalini Singh is my favorite author. She just knows how to write my type of romance.

It would be easier to blame Abe for it all.

I’m not sure what’s changed with me lately. Beforehand I needed my hero to be Mary Poppins in hero form – Practically Perfect In Every Way. But who are we kidding here? Blokes are not perfect. Then again, chicks aren't perfect either. If everyone was perfect and perfectly matched it would be a bloody boring old world. What we can do is try and find a perfect for me "type" of guy or gal, even in our romance reads. At times I don't mind the bad boys eg. bikers, mafi
I recently read that sometimes things need to go a little bit wrong before the go right. Things certainly went badly for Abe and Sarah but sometimes happily endings deserve a second chance. I adored their heartfelt story about forgiveness and love.

After growing up neglected by her mother and then left on the streets, Sarah Smith dreamed of a family of her own. When fate forever entwined her with rock star Abe Bellamy’s life she thought she thought she would be the happiest woman on earth even if

3.5 Stars. Abe made many mistakes during his brief marriage to Sarah. The Abe he was during that period of time is very difficult to read about, accept, and even reconcile with the Abe we got to know through the stories for the rest of the Schoolboy Choir band. It was not easy to move past the initial part of their story together and I anticipate that many will find that to be the defining factor for how they view the book overall. While I personally didn't find his reasoning to justify the acti ...more

I've sat on my thoughts regarding this book for three days and I'm still not sure exactly what I'd like to say. On the one hand, it's a Nalini Singh book so you know you're in for some goodness. On the other, I'm a picky bitch and I had my issues while reading Rock Wedding. Here we go.

A woman who knew she wasn’t loved could never quite settle in.

Sarah and Abe are well known to Rock Kiss series readers, but this was my first time meeting them. Luckily their relationship back story is laid out from thgo.

The Rock Kiss series ended with a bang, or more specifically, with a few wedding bells, joy and happy tears for everyone. I find it a tad too perfect for all the couples to be hitched in this one book, but to hell with it, this is romance after all.

Sarah loved Abe fiercely, and when he told her to leave and that he didn't love her it nearly broke her. But she picked herself back up and learned to move on without him. Years later their paths cross again and Abe makes it known that he wants Sarah back in his life. He's clean now and knows he screwed up big time with Sarah, but he's willing to do anything to show her that he's the one for her.

This is clearly a situation of 'It's me, not you' that left me rather with a 'hmph' feeling.

After having read and absolutely adored Rock Hard, I left books one and three out, including the novella, because a) they sounded too much like NA and b) I'm not much of a fan of Rock/Music stars stories. Anyway, the blurb of Rock Wedding sounded interesting enough for me to give this one a go. I'm a sucker for second chance romances.

Rock Wedding takes one of my favorite tropes. Marriage in trouble. Sarah has had enough of Abe’s drinking and him doing drugs. Throughout their marriage this has been an ongoing problem and when Abe strikes her with his cruel words Sarah has had enough.
Two years since the divorce and Abe’s finally sober and clean he wants the only good and right thing in his life back. Sarah. It’s not easy cause Sarah has learned her lesson and has her battle scars to prove it. She’s still attracted to Abe and

This booook!!! I had crazy high expectations for Rock Wedding because first, it’s Nalini Singh, and second, it’s a second chance romance! And thank god NS didn’t let me down – I absolutely LOVED. IT. Abe and Sarah’s heart-wrenching story of love, forgiveness, and redemption swept me away and stole my heart. This is one of the best second chance romances I’ve ever read, and it’s definitely my new favorite of the series. If you love the second chance romance trope,

Jesusmaryandjoseph, so many weddings. I thought the title would refer to Abe and Sarah's failed first marriage and possibly their second go at it. And it does. And then there are also the weddings of every single couple in the Rock Kiss universe. Yes, Fox and Molly's, David and Thea's, Kit and Noah's, and it's even mentioned that Charlie and T-Rex got hitched too. I mean, jeez, the matrimonial enthusiasm of this book was kind of giving me the cold sweats in 30°C weather.

In the prior Rock Kiss books, Sarah and Abe were mentioned together, and it was obvious the end of their marriage happened because of Abe. In Rock Wedding, we finally go
When Sarah met Abe she thought she had been swept of her feet by Prince Charming, all she ever wanted was to be part of a family, to have someone to love and who loved her in return. She never felt worthy of his attention and she never felt that he loved her as much as she loved him but she was sure that her love would be enough to see them through anything. That all changed after her miscarriage when Abe wasn't there for her when she needed him desperately, in fact he pushed her away in his gri ...more

Yup. i said it. I did not finish a Nalini Singh book. She's one of my favourite authors and i was looking forward to this one. The blurb sounded enticing but looks like I'll just stick to her paranormal reads. Did not feel this one AT ALL. Main characters were superficial, all over the place with their feelings and the pace was too fast (especially that first bit telling us what actually happened)
Better luck next time I guess.

3.5 Stars

Romance, as a genre, has a certain set of guidelines...rules if you must. In order for the romance to work, it needs to have certain elements. A hero you like, and fall a little in love with, a heroine you want to see happy, chemistry, passion, great sex (and lots of it doesn't hurt) and a happily ever after ending.

As the genre evolves, these rules are broken, twisted, and bent. And, when the story is g

Rock Wedding is the last instalment in the Rock Kiss Series. It can be read as a stand-alone though.
Abe and Sarah’s story is about second chances and very emotional. They have both suffered great losses in the past and have also suffered from each other’s actions. I was rooting for them and they really deserved their happily ever after.
I liked that Sarah made Abe work real hard for a second chance with her after he treated her so badly during their brief marriage.

This is a second chance romance about two people who loved each other very much but broke apart.... 

Sometimes you love so much that you get sucked in by everything about them and you don't care about anything other than being with that person that's how Sarah Smith felt when she first married Abe. Then slowly like anything shiny their relationship started rusting. With Sarah doing so much to try and make Abe give up the drugs. At thehow

This was the weakest out of the Rock Series books so far.

This book was strange and didn't necessary feel like a typical Singh book to me.

The writing was great. But that was it?

The plot was weak and felt very scattered to me.
We never actually got the real and sole focus on the couple this book was supposed to focus on, instead we more or less switched the focus rather constantly between all band members and their women. Which is fine if that is how you want to writ

Took my heart to places I never wanted to leave….

Sarah and Abe were going to open themselves to each other in ways that surprised even this seasoned reader’s heart… I hit 20% and already I knew, I knew, this book was going to be something special. I immediately started looking around to talk to others who just had to be feeling the same way. Surely everyone is reading this book! Savoring this book just like me.

Here we are, the Rock Kiss ride comes to an end. We know about Abe’s ex wife Sarah and saw in the previous book how her relationship with a boyfriend had reached a bad place, so it was natural for Abe to use this opportunity to get a second chance with the only woman he’s ever loved. Normally, that’s one of my favorite type of stories to read. But this one didn’t hit the mark quite as good as I was hoping for.

ROCK WEDDING starts off with showing us the bad side of Abe. Under the influence of drugs, mo

Review by Lisa Kane
I haven't read any of the previous books in this series. This can be read as a stand alone or part of the series, since all the characters from the previous books are here also.

Abe is a drug addict, he can paint a pretty picture about being able to cope, but he's just a junkie. Sarah is his wife, they married when she got pregnant. But she lost the baby and it seems her marriage is ending too. Abe is verbally abusive and neglectful and she finally has enough

“Abe grinned as Noah went in for the kiss. He'd expected laughing passion or maybe a raw lip-lock, but his hands cradling Kit's face, the guitarist kissed his new wife with a tenderness that had every single woman in the room sighing and all but melting into the floor.

Abe shook his head. "He really doesn't give a flying you-know-what about his bad-boy image does he?" he said to David.

David shot him a laughing look, his golden-brown eyes shining. with happiness for a friend who'd found his way out of the darkness that had haunted him for so long. "Says the man holding a baby and avoiding the F word.”
