Story Review:
Rocker books are always a "proceed with caution" read for me. The majority seem to have an overload of other women drama due to the famous persona of rockers. I am happy to report you don't have that in this book. Yes, their is an ex-w
Audiobook: Narrators – Lacy Laurel and Logan McCallister

This narration was spot on for two characters that were both heartbroken and angst ridden. These narrators excelled at the various ranges required to read both male and female parts. Lacy’s gave Joslyn a feel of vulnerability while Logan’s added a raspy depth to Roman’s giving him a deep sexy timbre.

Roman’s life is a disaster. He’s just gone through a messy divorce when, hounded by the paparazzi, he attacks one of them. Their questions wer

The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans is an emotional and sexy 2nd chance romance. From the very first page I knew this book was special and had the power to break my heart into many pieces –and guess what, it surely did. There were so many emotions and feelings that kept me hooked on this story from beginning to end.

The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans was an emotional, sexy hot, thrilling second chance romance! I was hooked from the beginning!!! This author knows exactly how to captivate her readers. Ah the feels with this book!!! Sooooo many! And I LOVED IT! I can't express how much I LOVED this book!!

Roman and Joslyn both had very difficult childhoods. Only made better by having each other. They were each others best friends, and biggest supporters. So when Roman wins a singing competition, as much as J
Jenn's Book Obsession
I must be in a major book funk because I am just not feeling it. Although this author does a spectacular job on the filthy talking Roman Nixon and the sexy times, I didn't really care for much else. I felt no connection or emotions from the characters.

It was just an okay story for me. I couldn't really get into it. I struggled to stay focused on the story and read it through to the end. The dynamic of the relationship between Roman and Joslyn just felt so unnatural. All the drama just seemed so

A beautiful read

Goodness me! Where do I start with this book?! From the very first page I knew this book was going to break my heart......and it did! The emotions poured off every page, wrapping me up and pulling me in.
Damn Kathy Coopmans is amazing! She made me feel every little thing as I tried to tiptoe through this book, but it was so fast paced that I felt like I had whiplash! In a totally good way!

This is absolutely the best book Kathy has written yet. Each book she writes gets better than the one before. I say that after every book of hers I've read and I'm sure I'll say it after I read her next one. This book was completely fantastic.

I loved Roman and Joslyn's story so much. I wish I could experience it again for the first time. Roman and Joslyn had a difficult childhood that was made better by each other. Roman was lucky enough to win a singing contest but the victory was short lived b

I freaking love this lady and all of the words she writes. Kathy Coopmans is absolutely dynamite in romance and I've been a huge fan since get beginning. Her words are seriously sexy. Her characters are completely addicting. Her novels are brilliantly mesmerizing.

The Right Direction was the perfect romance and such a great start to the seductive Sweet Sin series. A second chance at something beautiful and real that will last a lifetime... Roman and Joslyn are going to make you feel every

As I read this book I kept loving how this couple could deal with all the past to solidify their future. Joslyn has been through so much and yet she still comes out stronger each time. Roman has a past that he doesn't want the paparazzi to get a hold of, until one day. That day changed his life forever, forever it gave him something he lost so long ago.
This book is all about second chances of love that was never lost. A passage in the book kept me loving this couple and this story.

The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans is a hot and sexy second chance romance. Roman and Joslyn’s story had me hooked from page one. These two had a troubled childhood that connected them where they formed a bond that they thought couldn’t be broken. They thought life was looking up for them with Roman living his rockstar dream. But, as you know Kathy Coopmans is sure to pull out all the stops with our emotions as well as the unexpected twists and turns. She did just that with this book. I loved ...more

I got to read what I call a sample of this book in the Once Upon a Rock Star Anthology and I knew that Roman and Joslyn story going to be good. It the Anthology we got to meet these two characters, some of their past history, then we see the present with Roman sitting in jail for hitting someone and Joslyn coming in to be his attorney. The we get a end that leaves us wanting more and thank goodness Kathy didn't make us wait long to see what happens because I wanted the s

The Right Direction, A Sweet Sin Series Novel by Kathy Coopman.
Roman and Joslyn were the love of each other lives. When they left each other life, it was the hardest thing that they both had done.
Their lives took totally different paths. Roman became the lead singer in a rock band and Joslyn became an attorney. Little did they know that fate was going to throw them right back into each other’s lives. Watching Roman and Joslyn rekindle their love was amazing. They went through so much to get the

5 Crazy Ass Must Read Stars!!!!!

This. Is. My. Favorite. Kathy. Coopmans'. book. EVER!!!!! Kathy blew away my expectations of this book. She simply amazes me how much she has grown as an author and storyteller. I haven't loved every book of hers but what gets me is that she seems to use that criticism and delivers stories that are better. That sure has payed off with Joslyn and Roman's story.
I did a blind read on this. I didn't read the blurb or anything other than a couple of teasers before I do

Expected More

Very disappointed. The premise and the start of this book was very promising. About one third in, it became very repetitive, in both characters inner dialog about each other and the hot sex scenes. Wish there was more to the actual story. I also expected better editing and a less choppy reading experience for a book by a USA Today best selling Author. Maybe the next book about Dean will fare better.

This was not your average rockstar romance or second chance romance. There are many twist and turns. Their feelings and yours are all over the place. I felt like Roman was just a down to earth guy, not a hot shot rockstar. He was kind, compassionate and all alpha. Josilyn was amazing with her take no crap attitude. You can feel her emotions just below the surface, but her façade was all strong and sure. You will have many surprises, but it is a great story with all the feels.

DNF. What the heck? The dialogue is this book is awful. Rambling nonsense that makes your head spin. Even the so called lawyer spoke like a bad daytime tv character.
I forced myself through three chapters before I couldn’t go any further.

Oh boy! Oh boy! I have a new book from this lady and I couldn't be happier.... These were my first thought once this book popped on my Kindle. I love this lady and each books made me love her even more.
I've read a bunch of books from her and every single one was different from the last one. It didn't matter if they belong to the same series because they were different at their on way.

I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK!!!!! I think it is one of my top 10 books of the year (maybe top 5).
This book is a romance with a real and total love between the hero and heroine. It reminded me of a quote that I am REALLY going to blister, but you will get the gist. “If you love something, set it free. If it comes back it is yours, if it does not, it never really was.” This phenomenal book took me on the whole gamut of emotions, from laughter, to tears, to out and out anger. It made me FEEL to extremes!!!

I really enjoyed this story, the writing was flawless and the story flowed well. It is full of angst, with lots of emotion, twist's and turns, that makes this an interesting read.

I loved Ms Coopman's main characters, Roman and Joslyn, as they were strong and connected so well. The chemistry between them was evident right from the start and because this is a story of second chance love, we get all the emotion from their past when they were so much younger, colliding with the present day and how t

This book has a lot of darkness, violence and sex, apart from a very strong love story. This is a second chance love story, since the couple were foster children from very young up to senior year of high school. Then Roman left to pursue his dreams of being a rockstar, and Joslyn stayed to pursue her dreams of studying at the University of Michigan. Even though they were supposed to stay in contact and get together again after she finished University, a tragedy happened that split them apart and ...more

Kathy Coopmans has done it again!

I have to say that The Right Direction is probably my most favorite book by Kathy Coopmans and I'm so excited that it's part of a series. Though I've not read all of her other works, out of the ones I have read, I feel she has grown so much as an author, especially with character development.

There was something about Joslyn and Roman's story that completely sucked in from the very beginning. I could feel the connection between the two of them and knew I was in fo

The Right Direction is the first book in the Sweet Sin series by Kathy Coopmans. This is a second chance romance with a few twist mixed in.
Roman and Joslyn were childhood soulmates; they have spent years apart until fate stepped in and their world’s collided, I wouldn’t call Roman’s ex-wife fate but she is something.
I loved these two characters. Joslyn is a tough, strong sassy attorney and Roman Nixon is a dirty talking sexy musician. When Roman and Joslyn get together, they set the pages of f

Kathy Coopmans has done it again! I LOVED The Right Direction! Book one in The Sweet Sin series; it is a well-written, sizzling HOT Rockstar story. I was completely drawn in from the very beginning. It is, also, a sweet second chance romance that takes you for quite a ride. There are some very interesting twists and turns along the way as well!

Roman and Joslyn have loved each other since childhood. With both growing up in th welfare system, at their young ago it was because each other is all they had. As they got older everything turned serious.

Roman left to make it as a big time rockstar. He wanted Joslyn to go with him but she refused. She stays behind and becomes a lawyer.

Roman finds himself in need of a lawyer. His publicist finds the perfect one. Roman has never talked about his past so he can't believe his eyes when he sees wh

This is my first book by Coopmans and it won’t be my last! This book was full of mystery, angst, and the power of love. I loved how close of a unit Roman and his band are but more importantly I love the undying love between Joslyn and Roman! No hurt or anger for what life had thrown at them just determination to get their someday.
