I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

I knew that Tom was going to be my favorite Sinful Serenade guy. He was the sexy playboy drummer. He didn't believe in relationships at all. It was all about sex one time and that's all. No kissing or cuddling..ever! He was proud of that reputation.

Then there was Drew's little sister, Willow. She was hired to travel with the band as a photographer assistant. Willow and Tom developed a pretty close friendship. There was serious attraction
This was just what I needed after having read my last book. Low on the angst, but fun and flirty. Who doesn’t love a beautifully tattooed and pierced drummer of a popular rock band? With his shaggy dark blond hair and mysterious green eyes, Willow can’t help but fall for Tom. The first time they meet it’s under embarrassing but humorous circumstances. Willow struggles to stay in the friend-zone, though, when Tom labels their relationship as platonic. Tom is no good for her, plus she’s his best ...more

While each book is a standalone the entire series involve all the members of the Sinful Serenade and thus, you’ll meet most of the characters in each book even as secondary characters. So, while it’s not necessary to read all the books, I’d recommend it to avoid spoilers and in order to connect with them all.

Nothing like walking in on a smokin' hot musician naked to get the story going. This time around we check in with Tom and Willow who embark on their own little whirlwind romance. What I like about these books is that even though they are very much in the instalove realm, it doesn't feel that way as you're reading it. Maybe that is because the writing isn't contrived, maybe it's because the characters have depth - whatever it is, I'm down for it.

I don't even know where to begin with how much I loved this book. I have previously been a fan of the Sinful Serenade series having read the first two books already, but I loved this one even more than both the others combined.

While you don't necessarily have to read the first two books in the series to be able to read this one as there are not really any spoilers given away in this book, I definitely think that it helps so that you can fully appreciate the awesome person that is Tom.

I know it's rare to have the third book in the series be the best one, but it was. Tom and a willow were fantastic. I cannot wait to read Pete's story!

I devoured this in twenty four hours. You could say I read my heart out.

Rock Your Heart Out is an enthralling, touching and well written rock star romance novel. Which, as you can probably tell are one of my favorite things to read. This book hooks you in immediately and doesn't let up till the last few pages.

This one is definitely stand out for me. I really loved the writing, pacing and execution of the whole story. I also think the author delivered the drama well. I even liked the

I am not surprised how much I loved Tom in this...he is my favorite character so far but Drew is right on his heels. Though I think Pete may come close to knocking Tom out of my top spot.
The thing I really liked about this book was there wasn't really any bad angsty was pretty tame in the drama and angst but that worked so well for Tom. His bandmates see him as a drama magnet and a really he does thing to draw the attention off them because he knows it bothers them.

Willow I LOVE her

3.5, maybe a three. I relly thught it was cute, but it could have been told from the POV of anyone rich. Other than saying, oh I play, there wasn't a rockstar life involved at all. It was sweet, but he could have been some random millionaire for all the rock life he had.

Cute but less stars due to not feeling like it's a rock star book.

I can not stop saying that I love Crystal's books.
I have not read a bad one yet.
I'm not sure it's possible.
From previous books, Tom was an @hole.
When he met Willow, he still was but she found the real reason why.
They were perfect for each other and their story made me so happy.
I would highly recommend.
Happy reading!

So far this is my fav of this series. Who can't love a bad boy with a pierced penis? Loved Tom, God some of the things he would say. lol I liked Willow too even though she acted immature, but I had to remember that she was only 21.
Now for sweet Pete.

I really like how Tom, of all people got a piercing and couldn't have sexual relations until it healed forcing him to get to know Willow without his sexy times. It was perfect.

Love love love this romance. <3
I had A TON of issues with this book. There was a lot of steam as with all of the books in this series so far. I enjoyed Tom (a lot), Willow, and the story to an extent. I did have SEVERAL issues. Again, the way in which all of the sentences started were more like statements than complete thoughts, and so in my head as I was reading I was reading everything felt like bland statement rather than a complete thought. I did find Willow to be another push over. Tom suggested something with her looks- ...more

My third read in this series. I was looking forward to Tom's story. I felt excited, imagining what kind of feisty heroine would tame him. Willow was, well, a bit disappointing. I mean she was perfectly nice but I had hoped for someone with more gumption to take on Tom. Someone sassy and unashamed like Tom to give him a run for his money.

The issue I had with Willow was that she was pretty normal. I couldn't understand how she held Tom's attention. It just didn't make sense to me.

I didn't think this series could get any better, but it seems it can because this book was even better than the last in my eyes. Tom is an obnoxious, in your business, playboy drummer for Sinful Serenade. He is drop dead sexy and he knows it. The first time he ever met Willow, he was butt ass naked, cock piercing out and all, not an ounce of shame in site. He knows he has a rockin body and he's not afraid to use it. There was only one thing wrong, Will is his band mate Drew's sister. After ...more

So in this third Sinful Serenade novel we follow the romance of drummer Tom as he falls for Guitarist Drew's little sister. Big fan of Tom here particularly from the last novel I like how he manages to keep the band together despite his vain, empty playboy image,

Romance side of things in this one is great. Willow a photographer is his perfect mate - you really feel these two fall in love and I kind of like Tom's enforced celibacy due to his new piercing - pierced heroes aren't that common in

This is Tom's story and I couldn't wait to see how it would unfold.

The glorious manwhore finds his match in Drew's baby sister, Willow. I enjoyed the entire book and I have to say I was surprised how it progressed since Tom was out of commission because of his new piercings. In Strum Your Heart, there was sex scene everywhere you looked, so I expected even worst in Tom's book, but that was not what happened here; Tom and Willow had slow burn romance and I loved it all.

Tom is the supposed bad boy of the band. What most don't realize it that he brings attention to himself to cover for the guys in the band. He has taken over managing them to keep them on the straight and narrow.
With all of this Tom is still a man-whore who is with a different woman every night. Until he runs into Willow. Who just happens to be the most boring heroin I think I have ever read. She has nothing about her that makes her interesting. I thought when she had the drastic hair change she

So I saw an ad for this on Facebook and it seemed like the perfect escapist romance to get me out of my bad day funk, so I bought it even knowing I was starting in the middle of a series. I think I might have had a little more background on these characters if I'd read the other two books first, but I don't really feel you need to read the previous two to understand this one.

In Rock Your Heart Out, Kaswell has presented really solid grounding for a potentially five star contemporary,

Their own version of family

Tom is my favorite of the Sinful Serenade guys, probably because he’s the most loyal and dedicated to those he loves. I love how protective Drew is of Willow and the relationship forged between Willow and Kara. Kara went from a lonely life of solitude and fear, to being surrounded by love and security. This makes my soul happy. I wish we had gotten a little bit more closure about what happened with Willow’s ex. I feel like anyone who goes to extreme lengths probably

I chose this rating because I really enjoyed this book. I love the characters they are amazing. I really feeling love Willow because she had been through something very tragic, domestic violence at such an early age. That is something I just really do not like. But I'm glad you finally met someone that really love her and that want to control. I also understand the reason why her brother was so protective, he wanted to protect her. But he also needed to realize that now she's a grown

In this series of emo rock stars who can't figure out their feelings, we have Willow, Drew's sister and Tom the a-hole manwhore with a romantic side.

Willow joins them on tour as a photographer's assistant with a little help from Tom, who has just gotten his you know what pierced and can't have sex for six weeks. Interesting concept, for sure.

This has some elements of abuse, mainly the aftermath of the effects of that kind of trauma on Willow. I've read significantly deeper accounts. I'm also not

This is like watching your older brother finally fall in love. I took Tom to be incredibly serious, brooding, loving sex. But I didn’t expect to finally see him as this caring, thoughtful, lovable guy. That’s what he was with Willow. I get how he tried to fight his feelings for her. But when you put a girl in a position like that she’s gonna fall head over heels for you. Willow is fighting to find what she wants in life. She loves being a photographer, but narrowing down what she wants is ...more

This is by far my favorite book by Crystal. She was as able to capture everything we love about Tom and then give us another side of him. We were able to see him grow and learn to love Willow. It was great watching Willow grow in to a confident photographer and with the love an support from Tom she was able to understand what actual love was like after her tragic past with her ex. I love all Crystal's books but she has really out done herself with this book. 10 out of 10 would

About the same as the previous 2 books. Not the worst I’ve ever read but not the best. I have KU so I can read these for free. Don’t think I would have paid after reading the 1st book though. Lots of sex and light on story. Editing remains a problem but they are readable. I will finish the series and will give something else by this author a try to see if there is improvement. Definitely has potential but needs to concentrate more on characters & storyline and less on sex for me to pay to
