Death—it is inevitable, but I didn't know it could come so early.
If things didn't change, mine would be sooner than expected.

My life hasn't been easy, though with the way I act you’d think it has been.
I'm a joker, a partier, a playboy, a prankster. But I'm also broken.
A shell of a man.
Ryan Hunter, lead guitarist with nothing to live for.
Not even music soothes me completely

Lately I seem to be having a “Rocker” phase and as I have always a thing for “damaged” characters what would be the more obvious than going for a damaged rocker #figures
Well I came across the “Recoil” series by K.E. Osborn. And while I was aiming to read only “Plucker” because of its plotline – I was told it would be best to read “Pick” before, so I did just that and here are a few of my thoughts.
When I started reading I felt thrown right into the middle of an already existing world. While this

I have been waiting for Ryan's story for what seems like forever, and it's only been since I read Pick. But I've always had a thing for his tortured soul self. KE Osborn didn't disappoint one bit! Once again, her brilliant, and highly addictive writing style shone through perfectly, as I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough. And then when I was done, I wanted to go back to the beginning and start it all over again. Ryan is the rocker that I seem to have moved up to favorite on my list of mouth ...more

Oh I love Rockers especially damaged Rockers.
Ryan has become one of my favorites! He was a big man-child when Tillie came and took his position he threw fits, pulled pranks to scare her off and pouted. It was hilarious! Another thing I loved about him was he didn't have Rock God body and he had to work for one. Most fictional rockers are perfect and I loved Ryan for his imperfections.
When Tillie comes on the seen they walk that fine line of love and hate. Enemy to lovers stories are always fun b

Plucker is the second title in the Recoil Rock series. It's best to have read Pick prior to reading Plucker as although the story is with a new hero and heroine, the story really continues and the previous couple Lunar and Danger appear frequently within this story line. This is a perfect story for anyone who loves a damaged hero, a rocker romance or an enemies to lovers trope.

Plucker is Ryan Hunter and Tillie Marks' story. Ryan is a damaged hero who is haunted by his past. Ryan is thro

4.5 stars

Ryan stole my heart in the first book. He was the one that I felt held the group together while Danger was out finding himself, or what I call it. He wanted this group to stay together and I don't think the other guys in this book would have given Danger another chance if not for Ryan. At the end of the first book it told a bit of his story. His story was not pretty, nor was it one that I expected. He was the one that I thought had it all t

This is Ryan's story. I was intrigued with Ryan in Pick, book one and Danger's story, so I was happy to read this. This story is told from both Ryan and Tillie's POV's.

Ryan does the PR for his band Recoil. But their new manager hires a sassy, bright woman to handle it. He resents that since he has been doing the PR from the band's beginning.

"Okay, so when do we get to meet the pompous asshole who will be taking us on?" I ask....... "I believe that pompous asshole would be me, Mister Hunter.....

Plucker is the second title in the Recoil Rock series and yes, you should go read Pick prior to starting this even though it’s a different story it’s still a continuation. This was a book that reminded why I truly love Rock star romance!! This is that damaged rock star that takes your heart on a ride, that I am broken but I can be saved story.

I love this series, once again we are handed another rocker to fall in love with and Ryan doesn't disappoint.
In pick we seen the joker side of him but his story is so much more. My heart broke for everything Ryan has been through. This story was fun, sexy and emotional.

Ryan and his band mates are back in America, after taking Australia by storm they are after the same success here. Ryan is not your average Rockstar

This is the second book in Recoil Rock series, this book is about Ryan Hunter the lead guitarist for Recoil. He is a hot mess and not even music can sooth him these days even after the band gets back together and everything is really going well. He lost with nothing to really to live for being consumed by his past. He can't see past the trees to see a future for himself.

Tillie Marks enter the picture as the new PR manager and I want her gone. Ryan feels that she isn't needed that he was doing j

Ryan pulled at my heartstrings, vulnerable yet strong too

When KE Osborn writes a story about a rock star she definitely does it with style, panache, grit, edginess and some sizzling sex scenes. PLUCKER is the story of Ryan Hunter, who we met in PICk, and Tillie Marks, a woman hired to do Ryan's PR work for the band. This is the second in her The Recoil Rock Series and it is even better than the first. Having already read PICK and her other ttwo rock star series, I knew that this one was going to

KE Osborn sure knows how to write a sexy rocker. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down.

Ryan and Tillie clash at first but their attraction to each other is undeniable. Ryan is struggling with a tragedy from his past and Tillie is trying to get him to open up to her. There are more ups and down than a rollercoaster ride. We see a different side to our favourite joker rock star, and there were moments when i wanted to jump inside the book and smack him across the head and scream "no, you

Plucker was a great 5 star read.

The book starts with Ryan getting some very serious news about his health. He needs to change his lifestyle or else.
Tillie definitely has her hands full when she starts the new PR job for the band, Recoil. Ryan Hunter is one of the band members and he is very pissed off and is relentless on trying to get her to quit. PR for the band was his job and she took it from him. He has declared war.

There is something about Tillie

This story is emotionally gripping and sexy!

In Book 2 of "The Recoil Rockers Series" we get Ryans riveting story!

A new PR person is being hired for the band to replace Ryan and is not a happy camper. In comes Tillie, the new hire for the position and Ryan and her start the Prankwar of the year.

Regardless of all that, these two have some crazy chemistry.

You definitely want to read Book 1 first and then hurry and one-click Book 2. You won't be disappointed!

This is book two of this series, and I do suggest you read book one before reading this one, this way you aren't confused as to people and happenings that may have been mention. In book one Ryan was the happy, best friend that was there for Danger and Lunar. Well, things with the band are going great, they have now moved back to America, and have a sort of team there including a new PR person. Ryan isn't happy one bit, that was his job as well, and he feels a bit li

This is the story of Ryan, bassist of Recoil, and Tillie, the band's new PR rep. Ryan had been doing PR for the band, but with the band growing in popularity, their agent decided that they needed professional representation. Ryan is offended and feels let down by his band mates when they all agree to give Tillie a shot. He tries his best to sabotage Tillie, pulls pranks on her, all while fighting his attraction to her with all his might. And she gives it right back to him.

Another enjoyable read from K.E. Osborn. I have been following this author's work since her MC series and have really enjoyed the ride. I loved the banter and practical jokes that occur in the beginning. My heart broke for Ryan. Don't get me wrong because he mad me angry as well but he lives with such pain in his heart. Tillie is just amazing. You really can't help but to love her. She will be there to help you and support you but she isn't a doormat. She will bite back and has a point where she ...more

Plucker is book two in the Recoil Rock series. I would recommend reading Pick first just to get to know the characters better. This is Ryan and Tillie's story. Ryan is the guitarist and Tillie looks after the PR for the band. They were great characters and they had sizzling chemistry. The story flowed well and it was enjoyable. Liked seeing all the rocker boys and I can't wait to see who's story I get to read next.

I was lucky enough to get to read book 1 and 2 back to back, so I am all about Recoil. Anyways, not a rock or metal fan ? No big deal, it isn't very musical. The story shows a different side of the band. It shows how to the band came together as a team, organized, sold themselves and came to the US. Personally I liked this better than the usual blah blah talk about riffs and guitars.
Ryan Hunter, was the lead guitarist with a startling health problem. The entire story needed a little bit of angs

This is second book of the series, and I always liked Ryan in the first book, so I was glad it was his story next. I wasn't disappointed, even though there was times I wanted to smack him silly.

I loved Tillie and Ryan, they both loyal and hard working people.

Tillie is the PR now for Recoil Rock group. She is hard working, but also doesn't really have a social life. She is very hard working and loyal to the band.

Ryan is the guatarist of Recoil. He has a sad past, and he finds it hard to get over

Lead guitarist of the up and coming band Recoil.
They are back in the States after returning from Australia where they reformed their band.
The band is everything to Ryan.
But he is a shattered and broken man.
His nightmares haunt him.
His past is something he wants to forget.
So it's party hard, drinking and whatever comes with it.
He needs it to forget.
But what Ryan returns to is nothing

This series just keeps getting better and better! I loved Danger and lunar but Ryan and Tillie are a close second. I swear I'll add Nate to this after book 3 lol. Anyway, what I love about this band of guys is each one brings something to the table. It makes you love them more and realize they aren't perfect. In fact, I love that author had Ryan a little on the chubby side. So many times rockers are skinny with the six pack abs, so it was great to see one on the chubby side. With Ryan, I found m ...more

I have been waiting for Ryan's story and boy KE Osborn did not let me down at all.

Ryan the older member of the rock band Recoil has been through his share of pain and it comes across in his music. He knows that he can never love again and he really isnt sure he wants to that is until Tillie the bands new PR director walks into his life, his bed and ultimately into his heart.

Tillie is trying to make a name for herself in her PR firm and representing Recoil is just what she needs to do that, but

Plucker (Recoil Rock Book 2) by KE Osborne is full humor, contained sadness, scorching, and emotional. It contains a great story line - unique yet believable and will capture the reader heart and attention.

Main characters Ryan Hunter and Tillie Marks are complex, bantering competitors, and extremely attracted to each other. Ryan is hiding his pain with by playing a various range of pr

Ryan, the guitarist for the band Recoil, is the "normal" one of the group. Less flashy and more grounded than his band mates, is used to having his friend Danger have the spotlight. He has always done the PR for the group, and when the band's manager decides to hire an official PR person for the band, he feels like his job is being taken away. He is determined to scare Tillie, the new PR person, off and get his job back, no matter how many pranks he has to pull.

The only problem is that as much

The second book in The Recoil Rock series is Ryan and Tillie’s story. I loved Ryan in Pick (book one) and couldn’t wait to read his story.

Ryan is a fantastic character, he has it all; personality looks and of course is part of one of the hottest up and coming rock bands “Recoil”. Tillie is a sassy lady, tough and determined to succeed. This couple clash on some many issues, some will make you laugh out loud, others may make you cringe a little, but everything they do will touch your heart. From

This is the 2nd book in the Recoil series and it is an absolute must read. Ryan is the lead guitarist in the band Recoil. Ryan is a happy, fun playboy. At least that is how he appears on the outside. Ryan is broken and this persona that he displays is all a front to cover his pain. The pain Ryan is dealing with is losing his wife and child in an accident that he was driving in. His Band Recoil keeps him going but even that don’t let him completely free of the pain. Recoil makes a comeback after ...more
