Rock Rebel is book three in the Nothing But Trouble series by Tara Leigh. Everyone knows how I fall in love with the heroes of the books I read time and time again. But in this book, it’s not the hero I fell in love with. Yes, I loved him too, but it’s the heroine that dug into my heart. That I was thinking about when I wasn’t reading. I hope you’ll read on and let me tell you about Verity and Dax.

Dax is Nothing But Trouble's guitarist.


But he hasn't always been a rock star. He used to play classical music with his family. They're still doing the family 'band' thing pretty successfully, but after things with his ex went wrong six years ago, Dax couldn't do it anymore. So he went to Los Angeles, met the other guys and the rest is history.

Now he's back in New York to see his family play a concert, to celebrate his brothers' birthdays and to help his sister with her career choices.

Tara Leigh has written her best Nothing But Trouble Book with Rock Rebel.

Variety and Dax are perfection. The strength Variety musters up to endure and fight for her own HEA is inspiring, and Dax as her supporter and man is brilliant. These two are kind of couple goals.

The book does touch on hot topic/emotional issues, but ideas that need to be discussed and shouted about so they stop. Tara handled this with care, not making judgements but by showing the e

This book may contain triggers for some. Let's just say that #METOO is an important element and if you're a survivor, some descriptions may be hard for you to read.

O.M.G.!!!!! This! This has literally ALL THE FEELS!!! After I read the first book in the series, I was hooked. I'm not sure how I missed the second book (trust me, I'll be reading it because I clearly missed some awesomeness), I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. And Oh. My. GOODNESS!!!!!!!

The third book of the Nothing But Trouble series is without a doubt my favorite. Not only did the characters charm me but the plot moved fluidly, without a lot of the filler I found in the other books prior. And the story arced at just the right time with an unexpected conflict that was both surprising and fresh. Rock Rebel seemed to give me just a little bit more o

"The man was a song I didn't know the chorus to. A chord chart with missing notes. Frustrating. And so, so tempting."

What can I say? I simply love the guys from Nothing But Trouble. And the name is so fitting. All band members are truly nothing but trouble: They are kings. They are legends. They are rebels... As Dax was always the quiet one, seemed the most thoughtful, reserved and withdrawn. In Rock Rebel we get this full package and some more. Because Dax is every piece of a rock rebe

Liked a lot this heroine!! She was through a lot, betrayed by her own mother!!
But she's got some balls, she found herself, she found her love.
The hero I didn't like, first, he was a coward, too much "I don't deserve you, we can't be together, you are better without me"... Dude, really??!!

I don’t read a lot of rock star romances. Most of them don’t interest me. But I’m so glad I read this one! This was a beautiful encompassing love story between two broken people. It tugged at my heart strings. It took me on a wild roller coaster wild! I loved it!!

I'm going to be very honest with you all... this book was my favorite by Tara Leigh, and believe me when I say that I loved them all very dearly but there is just something about Dax and Verity that won me over from the start. They were both broken souls trying to make it in a world full of grenades. They each had their own secrets and a past that had broken their hearts and closed them both to the idea of love with someone from the industry or even at all.

THIS. BOOK!!!! I loved Rock Legend so I was quite excited to get my hands on Rock Rebel... Didn't disappoint! Dax and Verity are E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!!! Each of them had a great back story that just slayed me! And it made me love them individually so much, that watching them get together and fall in love was the greatest feeling!!!

Gah!! Rock Rebel was another amazing book by Tara Leigh that I could could not get enough of! Verity and Dax were so sexy and intense. I loved the push and pull and emotional connection between them. Their feelings and attraction for one another were on another level and it was so addicting to see.

While this is the third book in the Nothing but Trouble series, Rock Rebel is a complete standalone that can be independently enjoyed. When Verity Moore, disgraced movie star and pop princess and rock

5 Star Review of Rock Rebel (Nothing But Trouble #3) by Tara Leigh
This was my first book by Tara Leigh and I have no idea why that is and I found myself totally invested in Dax and Verity’s story.
Dax Hughes is the lead guitarist of Nothing But Trouble (love the name), a bad boy rock star who once upon a time in a previous life was a classical music prodigy. Turning his back on the music of his past, he is doesn’t care what his family or others think, until he meets Verity Moore.

4.5 stars for me

This was my first Tara Leigh book - but it definitely won’t be my last.

Dax and Verity are the kind of characters I love. Genuine, loving and so believable that I felt like I knew them. Tough subjects are handled in this story. The author does a beautiful job of highlighting a very real issue for women and some scenes are hard, but the message is important and the story needs to be told. I will definitely be looking for more books from this author.

Holy Crap!!! Once again Author Tara Leigh has “ROCKED” my mind! Rock Rebel, book 3 in the Nothing But Trouble series, starts off fantastic and packed with heat, and doesn’t.ever.stop! From the very beginning scene in the elevator with Verity and Dax and throughout the whole storyline, you will be hooked!!!

I have really, really enjoyed this series and I believe this book might just be my favorite! I loved the instant attraction and banter, the conflict, the love, the angst, the (HOT) sex scenes,

I'm becoming a big fan of Leigh's books. This book just sealed the deal. There was so much emotion going into this story. You could feel the heartbreak of Verity's life. Dax had a lot insecurities, but like Verify should of had. She didn't let all the wrong that was done to her, or by her, make her weak. It made stronger.

I would liked to see what happened between her mother and herself, but that is the drama queen in me talking.

I do not have enough words to describe everything that this story made me feel, from the first pages it enveloped my soul, it owned my heart and made me completely addicted to its words, I am seriously obsessed with the characters, gahhh, I have been thinking for three days in them. This couple stole my heart.

Through a steady rhythm and lyrical prose the author hooked the readers in the story of the characters. Verity is such a brave girl, so strong, she has had to survive

Tara Leigh, you had me at rock star!

This book may contain triggers for some readers. The #MeToo movement is featured quite heavily in this story.

I have fallen for each and every one of the both boys from Nothing But Trouble, however as much as I adored Dax in Rock Rebel, our leading lady Verity is the one that captured my heart this time.

This story quickly became my favourite of the series... so far?

“If I was going to go up in flames, Dax could light the damn match.”

“I barely knew Dax. He barely knew me. But this invisible thread between us–I knew it deep in my soul. It was universal, primal, powerful.”

“He was in the zone. That place where music took over and you were just a conduit, a means of expressing something bigger and more powerful than you could fathom unless you experienced it for yourself. All bristling intensity, Dax was so beautiful in this moment. His passion pure and potent.

There is beauty in anonymity and heartache in recognition. In other words just because someone knows you by name, doesn't mean they understand your private struggles. Rock Rebel reminds me of an old movie entitled, "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter." It told the tale of a deaf man who had a heart full of love. He showered his love on the people around him, but lost himself along the way. The best of intentions ended in tragedy. Dax and Verity use music to tamp down the pain, they hide inside.

Rock Rebel has got to be my favorite book from the Nothing But Trouble series.

Dax and Verity's relationship definitely takes you through a journey. Both of them are so drawn to one another and yet know that the last thing that they should do is get into a relationship but their pull is strong.

Dax how I loved him in this. Even though he too has his own feelings towards being in a relationship he was like he couldn't help but try to be there for Verity. It's that pull that sucks you into this on

I really enjoyed this - you know they are going to end up together, after all it is a rockstar book! What I liked about this was there was not lots of time wasted on back and forth - there was initial denial by the H but he soon came round! Loved Verity - took a st

Awesome! I loved it so much! Verity is definitely my favorite heroine of this series. She has a lot to prove but she definitely succeeds. Dax is perfect in my eyes! I really loved these two's chemistry. So hot it almost burned up my kindle! I thought for sure I was having hot flashes lol. Their banter was sometimes heated and they did butt heads a lot but you know these two are perfect together.

Rock Rebel may be the best in the Nothing But Trouble series yet and definitely my favorite so far. This rock romance is more than just bad boy rocker meets his match. It touches on a topic that’s made the headlines far too often and handles it well.

Verity Moore isn’t just a disgraced pop princess. She is a strong, independent woman determined to take back her life and control of her career.

Dax Hughes left Manhattan behind to chase a love that promptly left him with a broken heart. Now he’s a
