Garrett Wilder is rich, famous, and totally bad for me. After one night that ended with me wanting to punch him in his face, the self-absorbed rockstar has become a permanent fixture in my life...
Whether I like it or not.

Now I’m forced to see him every day, and that shield I put up to protect my heart is quickly crumbling to the ground. I’ve gone from hating him to craving

I'm putting this on hold just ruminate things for awhile and think about whether I should continue reading because I'm so annoyed as I'm writing this. Reasons below and spoilers of course.

"You think you don't fit in my world, but what you don't get is that you are my world."

I have been recommended Jessica Prince's books for quite some time now, so I finally jumped in and I am so happy I did. In all honesty, this is the kind of book I would recommend in between heavy emotional reads. Just the kind that I could sink into because it was well written while being a quick and easy read. I didn't have to think too hard while reading it because Jessica spelled it out for

4.5 Stars!!!

After reading Corrupt for the second time, I think I'm ready to write my review. So here it goes.

I'm always game for a good rock star story and was a little enamored with this one. Reading an author you've never read before and abso-fucking-lutely falling in love with her book, is always exciting.

I wasn't sure I was going to like Garrett at first because lemme tell you, he was an egotistical dick but then... BAM! He went from Douchy Von Dickhead to bo
***4 ‘Hello Crazy Train’ Stars***

I'm kinda tired now and my eyes hurt from all the times they either bugged out of their sockets or were rolling because Garrett & Gwen took me on one hell of an angsty roller coaster ride. Because lemme tell you, the sweet and smexy totally went toe to toe with the angsty emotional drama in this baby. I'm not mad at ‘em because I devoured every word of their journey and was totally invested in them. But they definitely went big.

Az evvel baktım ki daha evvel de bu yazardan bir kitap okumuş ve beğenmemişim.

Uzun zamandır rock star'lı kitap okumuyordum. Eğlencelidir diye başladım ama beni pek tatmin etmedi. Ve çokça Kylie Scott'un Stage Dive serisi kokusu aldım. Ama böyle kötü bir kopya kokusu.

Gwen bir arkadaşının ısrarı sonucu bir rock grubunun partisine katılıyor ve orada grubun bateristi Garrett ile tanışıyor. Aralarında özel bir şey olduğunu düşünüyor ama tabii sabah sepetleniveriyor. Garrett bu işi kendisi de yapmıyor

OH YES YES YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3 hours 30 minutes that is how long it took me to completely devour this book.

Once I started I couldn't stop reading it. I got sucked right into this story instantly and fell completely in love.

It stars off with a hot as fuck encounter between the two main characters and from there all hell breaks loose. I will say that at first I wanted to punch, maim, dismember the hero in this book Garrett.

Toe-curling sexy--my new favorite Jessica Prince novel!

Garrett is one terrific, sexy alpha drummer, and initially Gwen is a sad, demure transplant to Seattle. Boy, that changes fast! (The Gwen part, NOT the Garrett part.)

I didn't expect the forces that drove them apart in the beginning, so I won't spoil it. Let's just say, I wasn't sure how they'd overcome THAT...

It's great fun when they do start getting back together, though. Garrett and Gwen are explosively sexy. Prepare for panty changes!

I found the new series by Jessica Prince to be very good and super engrossing. The characters leaped off the pages and take root, where you want to see them find their happiness ASAP.
In the case for book 1= Corrupt, this is filled with amazing characters, nasty villain(s), serious plot and a phenomenal plot. Oh and of course the regular angst and sizzling sexy passion to go with the storyline.

Sweet lord. Words cannot express how much I FLOVED Corrupt.

Seriously. It ticked off all the boxes for me. Amazing characters. Check. Compelling, engrossing story line. Check. Bit of a villain who gets their comeuppance. Check. Hot and sexy times. Check. Little angst, lots of love. Check.

I have to admit, I really had no idea how the relationship with Garrett and Gwen was going to work. There was so much shared history, almost too much to work through. But man, when they tried, it was awesome to

Jessica Prince is the bomb!! She delivers every single time and her heroes are the best!
Garrett and Gwen meet at a party and have a one night stand. What follows is a shit storm of epic standards.
I loved Gwen's sass and grit. She took a shitty situation and owned it and I loved her for that.
I did not think much for Garrett initially. I mean yeah, he's a rock star and rich and sexy and cocky. But as the story progressed, I kept falling in love with him. I was like, Gwen give Gina chance already

I was provided an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Since I read Jessica Prince's novel, Seducing Lola, I was beyond excited to read her latest novel Corrupt. Corrupt follows the troupe of rock star romance featuring an unexpected pregnancy between two people who have a hate-love relationship. 

I'll begin this review with what I liked about the book. Between Gwen and Garret, there was amazing heat between them. Come on! Who wouldn't swoon for a tall and muscu

"I found Jessica Prince when she released Chance Encounters, so it hasn't been that long, but since then, I've read about 4 or 5 other books by her. So When I saw Corrupt, I snatched up this ARC as fast as I could. I didn't even read to see what it was about before signing up.
I was so glad that I did, because this book has become my favorite Jessica Prince book so far!

I absolutely loved these characters. I did get a bit annoyed with Gwen at some parts. The self destructive nature got a bit old

Immediately this book sucked me in. I loved the way Jessica Prince set up the platform for the story right from the get go. This isn't your cookie cutter romance, it's full of hard feelings, real truths, banter, passion and sexy scenes that leave you blushing. I love the chemistry between Gwen and Garret, it flew off the page and smoldered on my kindle. This is a love story with a rock and roll edge that will make you fall for the wrong, or right?

4.5 stars! I completely devoured this book! And then immediately devroued it again!

The bad boy rocker you want to hate (and love) and the girl he corrupts! I loved Garrent (and hated him a bit at times), but mostly loved him and Gwen. And Liddy was such a sweetheart!

Loved this book and cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

Happy reading!

Where's the 6 star button when I need it.

I started this book right before going to bed this morning after a night shift. I couldn't seem to tear myself away to get some sleep. So it's basically Jessica's fault that I suffer from lack of sleep and a major book hangover. I've read enough books in my life to know after a chapter or two if it's going to be a memorable story. This is the case where I'm actually looking for the 6 star button.

I am so in love with Jessica Prince's books!! I found her by chance and now I can't get enough of her stories, have to read them as soon as they are out.

When I first started reading Corrupt, as I was reading the first couple of chapters, I thought the premise of the story would be pretty predictable and that I'd know for sure how it was going to go. I was right and I wasn't. I mean, Gwen and Garrett did get their happy ending, but they didn't get there the way I thought they would.

I don't how Jessica Prince manages to write perfect books every time but she does!  EVERY FREAKING TIME!  As soon as I'm done with one book I think she can't top that and then she does and my mind is blown again!  Her books are magical, they suck me in and never let me go.  I crave her words and I thank God that whatever muse she has, has been working overtime because she's given us so many great books in such a short amount of time.

This book had everything that I want from an outstanding book!

Jessica Prince is special and I realized that by the end of my very first book by her. Her books are always packed with so much heat and emotion with sexy undertones and amazing alphas and heroines.... What I didn't expect from her was this book, so different from her others yet so so addicting and amazing! And dare I say a contender for my favorite by her to date...

Not the best circumstances to start a relationship but it is what is and Gwen does the best she can.
Garrett is all Rocker he is a hot, cocky, party hard, manwhore and I LOVED him. When he realized what he wanted, all changed. Yep he became my favorite type of hero an #sshole changed by love. Once he changed he made me melt. And he is a drummer!!
