It started ok, (though I assumed he wasn't a manwhore *naive ol' me*), but then I went back and read my friends' reviews, Katerina's review made me immediately DNF it.

Not cool, 'dear' heroine, sooo not cool! 😤😤😤

This is not a hot rock star romance as the cover of the book suggests but a sweet love story that is romantic and emotional.

We have got the sweetest rock star in this book. Parker Sloan is just perfect. I wouldn't change one thing about him.

Charlotte is an interesting character. I loved her very much 90% of the book but I got pissed at her fiercely for a few chapters in the second half of the book.

Charlotte is a sassy woman, a smart-ass, who doesn’t vie for the attention of the rock star but the

“I’d told girls I loved them before – but I’d never meant it as much as I did when I said it to Charlotte.”

Sensible manwhore rockstar who falls hard and chases the heroine - a ball busting, independent, successful woman. Praise the book gods not a virgin, classy, a professional make up artist who's had boyfriends, easy sex, enjoyed a life preceding the hero, has a good support system and some ghosts in the closet.

Trust between them was very solid. Conflict arose when she had to decide whether h

@Dilek: My dearest friend, I'm awaiting your review. Pls hurry up and finish this book ASAP and after that maybe I can give a shot too! :D


You can read Dilek's detailed review from here.. ;)
Cheesy sweet, no OW drama, no cheating or groupies, hero chases the heroine and she doesn’t turn into a drooling swooning mess.

It started out really good but then towards the middle not much happened and then all the typical plot twists started piling on. Would recommend for someone looking for a cute,cheesy, safe read

DNF @ 69%.

I suffered to 69% before I called it quits. The story started off well with the H pursuing the h but then took a horrible OTT turn. The drama starts with the characters becoming upset over something posted on Facebook. FACEBOOK!!! That is so childish!! The h has a brother who is a master hacker but didn't get him to help her when her ex made her life miserable. But when a pic is posted on Facebook showing the H with his ex, she gets really upset and asks her brother for help. Oh, lets

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
Parker Sloan didn’t do girlfriends… but these girls obviously thought they could be the one to change all of that. I don’t get it.

A tingle of excitement ran down my spine. There was just something about pulling some random girl out of the crowd and making her mine for the night. In my experience those girls were always so excited, so willing. I gave them my all too, but only for the night.

Looking for a good rockstar read with deep thrills, hot sex and so much drama you're brain will explode? This is the one for you. I haven't read a lot of rockstar romances because they are all normally so cliche and predictable, but this story had its own unique little twist. While I found myself having trouble connecting with the characters in some situations, it didn't deter from how good the storyline was.

Parker & Charlotte had instant chemistry, but Charlotte's had a bad history with cocky
Its not so much that this was badly written but that it was lazily written. If there is one job an author has its to anchor their fictional story in such a way that the reader feels its reality. If you're not George R R Martin or Pierce Brown or the great number of authors who are fabulous at creating worlds then just set your story in the current but for f**k sake do some research!

Clearly this author isn't American, one didn't need her note at the end of the good to decipher that; which is fin

“The moment I saw you, something broke inside of me, and I’ve got a pretty good idea that the only way I can be whole again… is if I’ve got you by my side.”

Oh my Lord.. Parker Sloane.. that bad-boy rocker melts my insides and makes my ovaries explode.





Seriously though, Parker stole my heart and melted my Kindle screen. This was the perfect mix of heat and sweet and gave me tingles all over reading about this drop-dead sexy rock star.

And of course there's Charlotte, the lucky lady that

This book rocked my world; when Parker Sloan knows what he wants he gets it. Nicole S Goodin did a fabulous job writing this book. The chemistry between Parker and Charlotte was hot.

I loved how when Parker first went up to Charlotte Watson, she wanted nothing to do with him. It was refreshing to read about the way he had to win her over. I adored how hard she fought her feelings for him, until she finally fell head over heals for him.

This book is a standalone but I do wish there were more to co

This review said nice things about the book. But the things she mentioned she didn't like put me off
Sarah~ Book Obsession Confessions
I really loved the humor in this book, the wit of Charlotte especially. It's great how the cocky rock star has to work to get her and is having trouble understanding the problem. The first few chapters were so funny, witty and cute I was actually laughing out loud as I read. I loved the way their romance developed and the issues and problems that do come up were believable and didn't seem forced.
I love that Charlotte is independent and that she's had to work to be that way. Made her so likable.

A rock star book that is very different from what I am used to - and that is not a bad thing. The first 15% had some really laugh out loud moments between Charlotte & Parker before it settled into an actual love story. For once the profession wasn't the front and center of the book during this time, instead the relationship and how to navigate through one when being with someone famous was. The book was five star territory for me until one to many road blocks were thrust in front of the couple a ...more

Please..... let me be able give this book more than five stars! Paper, Scissors, Rock is so much more than just a rockstar romance. This is about not finding the one but finding your everything, your life. Parker was content with his life until her, she was the game changer. However like all good lyrics in a love song talk about, you have to survive the hard stuff to get your forever. As fame, bitterness and life throw everything at Parker and Charlotte can their love be enough to endure the sto ...more

I've been watching this book since it came out in September, finally grabbed a copy and dug in. I love a Rock Star book.
Parker Sloan is done touring feeling a bit alone in his lifestyle. He can walk into any bar and pick up any number of willing girls. He sets his sights on Charlotte Watson who couldn't care less who he is or how many women want him he plays dirty. I love his best friend Jasper he is a hoot. Love Charlotte's best friend Hannah is another key character. This story is full of twis

Holy hot rock star! I freaking love Parker Sloan!! I swooned over and over throughout this book. I love a cocky guy, but one that is both cocky and sweet just takes the cake!
Charlotte is a makeup artist and Parker is a famous singer. They happen upon each other and the chemistry is immediate, but Charlotte gives him a run for his money that made me giggle more than once. I loved, loved this book and can't wait to read more about these characters!

Loved this book! The interactions between characters was entertaining the love that unfolded was swoon worthy and the drama was light yet emotional. The author made you invested in ALL the characters not just the main ones and I can't wait to read Hanna and Jasper's story along with the brothers!

Oh my gawwwwwwsh!
I have read a few Rockstar romances, but this one is definitely up there in my top 5!!!
I freakin' love Parker and Charlotte!!
In fact, I think Charlotte may be in my top 3 female characters! She's so sassy and hilarious! She doesn't take shit from anyone, especially Rock's bad boy Parker Sloan.

Parker is the guy that every girl wants to tame. Ridiculously hot, bad boy, ladies man... all that jazz. He falls head over heels for Charlotte on sight, but he'll have to work hard to crac

A rockstar has met his match, a girl who wants nothing to with him. Strange concept to him because everybody wants him. Feeling dejected he has to find a way to inject himself into her life. The way he does it was so clever, kinda stalkish but effective even if she gave him crap for it later. Charlotte has been bitten by a bad relationship, the guy was a total douche so she’s very wary. Her and Parker are great together, lots of up and downs I mean he is a celebrity. I loved all the side charact ...more

It's safe. Classic Rockstar falling in love with a common girl.
Was hoping for a great story and some sweet loving.
What I ended up with was a pretty standard the same old sh*t. Meh.
It was very unbelievable that the Hero fell in insta-love with the heroine. They both fell flat. No chemistry whatsoever.

Sexy, intense, and funny rock star romance!

Parker Sloane loved the adulation of his concert fans. He needed it to live, to thrive, “to feed the beast” that was the crowd chanting his name. He can have anything and any girl he wants, his condition is for one time only. Out at a bar, bored with the usual half dressed girls crawling all over him, he spies a pale red-haired girl sitting alone and looking uninterested in the action around her, so he decides he’d like to spend the night with her.

Rock my World, that's what this book did! Paper, Scissors, Rock is a fantastic read about a musician named Parker Sloan, and the woman he can't get out of his head, Charlotte.
