Every girl has a breaking point…

Mine came the moment I found my boyfriend in bed with another woman. Turns out she wasn’t the first, either. Nope. Seems my guy had been screwing every available girl on campus and I’d been oblivious to all of it.

Running away with a rock band may not be the best way to handle things, but that’s exactly what I do. Two days into the adventure,

21 is basically a combination of a whole bunch of my romance weaknesses.

Sexy bad boy rocker? Check.
Road trip? Check.
Naughty bucket list? Check.
Enough heart to keep mine on the line? Check.

Rock star stories are hit or miss for me, but this one was a little “rock star lite” which means it was definitely a hit for me. It wasn’t terribly angsty and there wasn’t a lot of questionable behavior I had to get over. In fact, the relationship between Dylan And Victoria was pretty much steady as they go – b

Wow!! I absolutely loved this book. Tori and Dylan's story is everything I want in a rock star book. The characters were believable and genuinely likeable. The dialogue was witty and the chemistry was hot enough to require new panties. Dylan was the perfect kind of alpha BBF that I love and I loved Tori's journey of self discovery. I enjoy books that provide a positive portrayal of women exploring their sexual needs without shame. There is nothing I would change about this book - except to make ...more

A good story. My only exception is after a wonderful summer in Panama City and with no contact with outside world, the incident and character involved comes out of the blue. The outcome seems harsh and just disjointed from the vibe from the summer and then aftermath just floats (sadly) to it's HEA. So the one star off on the review.

First and foremost, I must thank the incomparable Molly McLain for introducing me to the just as incomparable Rhonda James and her just as fabulous books. For this, I will be eternally grateful!!! <3 <3 <3.
O. M. G. ~~~~21~~~~ FREAKING FANTASTIC!!!
I LOVE Dylan and Victoria, and watching each of grow, and overcome their pasts, and create their future. This book is definitely one of those ‘bad boy goes good’ book. Dylan, aka Sin has a past he is not proud of and feels he is not good enough

This book pulled me in from the first page, another amazing book by Rhonda James. I devoured the pages in hours. I enjoyed that it wasn't the typical rock star romance. I loved Victoria and Dylan "Sin' as individuals and they were off the charts with their chemistry. The guys in the band were amazing as well, they developed a fast friendship with Victoria and it was definitely something she needed.

WOW, this book was amazing. it's a fast pace read with amazing characters. Tori is tired of being boring, she wants to prove to everyone and herself that she can have fun and being on the road with a rock band is the perfect way to start. 21 , she'll be 21 soon so why not make a list, a 21 bucket list of things to experience, some fun, some dirty. Dylan knows he should stay away from Dylan but he can't , he doesn't want to, he wants to take her list and make each item a reality. Tori is in awe o ...more

Every girl has a breaking point…

This was my first book by this author and let me just say: WOW! I read this book in one sitting because putting it down was not an option. I connected to the H (Dylan aka Sin) and the h (Victoria aka V) from the beginning and could not wait to see how this played out. The author did not disappoint.

V is a great girl who was raised with money, but always did what would please others. Her parents greatly influenced her decisions especially when it came to who she da

Rhonda goes back to her roots with 21. A brand new Rock Star romance and series starter for The List series. This sexy romance heats up your kindle to the point of combustion and delivers an intense romance.

Victoria thought her life was heading in one direction and in one night it does a complete 180 degree turn. Dylan (Sin) has always admired Victoria from afar being that she dated his brother until one night he catches her swimming in his families pool. Put together by circumstance, Victoria

"I lifted my lips to his. 'I don't bed see myself hating you, Sin."

5 Chocolate chip cookie stars! Sin is definitely worth sinning for!!

I love a good rock star book, then you add in some adventure and a sinfully sexy man... and you've got me hooked!! Dylan "Sin" Cross is everything you should loathe in a man... but darn it if he's not sexy as you know what!!! The minute he shows up on the pages you know he's the one you're going to fall for. I absolutely fell in love with V as well. I liked her t

OMG why have I not read Rhonda James before, I blame my book buddies for not recommending her and keeping her all to themselves........
Well as you might have guessed this is my first Rhonda James Book and I loved it, it has everything you want in a rock star story, the characters have depth, are genuine and loveable. I loved that the heroine Tori wasn’t afraid to explore her sexual needs in fact she has a naughty bucket list..... and what can I say about Dylan the perfect, hot, alpha male. I lov

This is the first book I've read from this author and I'm sold! I have to get more of her books. Victoria was in a rocky relationship with Michael but she always had an "eye" for his older half brother Dylan aka "Sin". After she catches Michael in a very compromising position she calls it quits for good this time and heads back home to her family's house. Dylan is a reformed bad boy having spent time in prison and losing his mother he picked himself up and is making his way towards his dream in ...more

This story had so much potential and Rhonda James delivered. It exceeded my expectations to be honest.

The characters were well developed and I really liked how Rhonda portrayed Dylan (Sin). Victoria (Tori) was likeable too and certainly knew how to stand up for herself!

I found it hard to put this book down as I wanted to keep reading and was disappointed when I was coming to the end.

I would definitely recommend this story. It is my first book to read by this author but I can say with certainty i

Holy hotness! The feels are all over the place with this one and I read through it in one sitting! V, so determined to brake out of her shell and her comfort zone but no direction. Enter super sweet, super hot bad boy rocker Sin or as she knows him - her exes step-brother who was always into some kind of trouble thinks he's just the one to help her once he knows about her "List". I absolutely loooove her bff Sophie-everyone needs that one frien

Fantastic read!!

Oh my flipping days!!! Rhonda James is back and she is back with a bang baby!! I love this author so much! Her ability to write a book that has you invested from the very first page, enabling readers to connect straight away with the characters has this author in my favourite five!
And that's exactly what she has done with 21, I swear my heart broke for Victoria when she found out about Michael and I shouted at my kindle more than a few times!
Victoria is determined to seize life

😈 Sin was sinfully delicious. Like chocolate chip cookies 🍪 I want more.. I'm greedy!!!
Dylan aka "Sin" had me swooning. Sin & V were perfect together. And the "List"!!! How it all started. ✅✅✅ check!! If you love a dirty talking rocker 🎶🎸🎤who will have you melting into a puddle and the need to find another BBF then pick up this book. Hawk is mine btw so don't touch him 🔪
Rhonda never disappoints! I love her style of writing. This guy though 🔥🔥🔥💯

Rhonda James strikes again with another great book.
This story revolves around Sin and V and the greatness that is their lives.
Victoria leads a fairly mundane life until she takes a leap into the unknown by driving a brand where they need to go and deciding to stay for a while, you follow the ups and downs of live for the band and V.
You will laugh a lot and feel so much for these people that you don't want their story to end.
I loved this story so much, another great job by Rhonda.

GREAT BOOK!! You seriously won't be able to put it down once you start. There is so much that happens that you just keep turning the page. Lots of music, laughs, sex, arguments, and some tears. You fall in live with Sin right way. I highly recommend this book.

21 was a great 5+ star read.
Rhonda James has once again pulled me right in with her writing. I was super excited to read this rocker book.

First I want to start off with this cover, how hot is this cover. I'm one of those people, I'm sorry to say I definitely judge a book by its cover. A cover will make me one click without even reading the blurb. 21 was everything I have come to love with a Rhonda James book. Her books are sweet and sexy. The H are usually alpha and the h are strong and sassy. Im telling you the girl can write some steamy scenes. 21 is a sorta second chance love story. Told in a dual POV. Sin is the black sheep of ...more

Let me tell you what I love about this book. I have always enjoyed RockStar themed stories but was aware that they usually involved A LOT of fantasy because that just doesn't happen in real life (haha). This book was not that. It is not about being a FAMOUS rockstar or being in a FAMOUS band. Oh I do LOVE the guys in this band though (sigh). This story is about finding your passion and embracing your talent and finding the life you were meant to lead. The topics and characters in this story seem ...more

Rhonda James wrote a wonderfully delicious sexy story and I couldn't stop turning the pages! I love sexy, dirty bad boys and Sin (Dylan) fits that to a T! V (Victoria) was a little harder to warm up to, but when she connected with Sin, the sparks flew and the chemistry nearly ignited my Kindle! The story was unique, well written and the twisty turn of events at the end blew my mind! Definitely an automatic 1-click in my book so get your finger activated and

We get to meet Tori and Dylan in this story of heartbreak and finding who we are and the strenght to change who are when we are happy with how the world sees us. V and Sin are those people they become while still holding on to their core selves. Arrangements are made, rules set in place what could possibly happen...... LIFE that's what happens! Now I won't give anything away because you need to read this book and find out all the good stuff..... and why I want

I don't know if there are words to describe how much I love this book!!! And by love, I mean I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!

Only Rhonda James can name a main character "Sin" and make you fall completely in love with him and want him to have all of his dreams and desires to come true!

Can you get involved with your younger brother's ex? Can you allow yourself to love and be happy when you've made so many bad choices in life? Can you truly feel like you deserve happiness? These are the questions that Sin is

Everyone needs a little Sin in their lives!!

Love love loved it. Tori and Dylan may be my new favorite couple. I think a lot of women have found themselves at one point in their lives at the same spot as Tori. It's so easy to forget to live for yourself and put everyone else before you. Especially in a relationship. Deep down we all want to feel loved and in love. It's easy to put on our rose colored glasses and allow ourselves to be treated less than we deserve. Particularly by someone we tell
