He’s a rockstar that can have any woman he wants,
but he has his sights set on his brother’s best friend.

Ryker always felt that he lived in the shadows of his genius twin brother, Jameson; no amount of platinum records or devoted fans can change that. Especially when the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen crashes his sister’s wedding and rushes into his brother’s arms. H

Holy heck in a hand basket! Yeah I said that. Have to come up with cheesy appropriate phrases these day so my reviews don't get rejected. Pity, though because I believe true expression is important. But whatever.

This book! This series! This author!

When I discovered my first Coming To Carson book, it was exciting. I had never read this author and finding new authors to love is always a great experience. Renee Harless quickly became a fave for me to the point that I frequently stalk her pa

Sometimes the person you were destined to be with has been there all along, but you didn’t meet them until you desperately needed each other.

Ryker is at a crossroads in his life and he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do next. His band Exoneration may be taking a break from touring, but he still needs to come up with new music, and right now he is experiencing writer’s block which has left him very discouraged. His pages are empty of words and his mind is in need of a spark to get him writing agai

"You're stuck with me, Princess. I'm not going anywhere."
"That's good because I want to keep you."

Oh, how I want Carson NC to be a real place! And if Exoneration was an actual rock group, I'd download every album simply because I'm in love with Ryker!!

Ryker James a.k.a. Ryker Connelly has it all. Fame. Money. Women. But watching his siblings find their happily ever afters have him longing for more - a future he never sees actually happening. Until she comes barging in to his sister's wedding rec

Reading Rykers story has been bitter sweet because I know my time with the Connelly’s is coming to an end! I have grown to love this amazing family sooo much and the town of Carson is one I absolutely adore!

Though it’s bittersweet this is one of the siblings I have been dying to read about because Ryker is the one brother that’s so mysterious! I have wanted to know who he is and what he is about since book 1!! He’s the twin cast in the shadows and he has embraced it! He’s full of so much love a

Coming Unplugged is a fast paced wild ride that had me intrigued from the start. There is so much happening right from the second you start reading that it feels like you’re instantly thrust into adventure that is quickly filled with some deliciously steamy romance. This book has it all from secret government projects, to sexy rockstars, to crazy intense instalove. Needless to say, I had fun reading this.
Norah and Ryker have one of the sweetest romances even with all the action that is going on

I’m a little confused about this book. It feels like too many tropes competing and none of them really fit. You have a rockstar romance, brothers best friend, mafia/suspense, and small town. It’s a lot in what isn’t a long book.
I also felt like things happened too fast and were resolved too easily. I also felt like things were so far fetched that it pushed it into unrealistic territory.
Individually I liked Ryker and Norah, they work as a couple too, but I’m not sure their circles mesh well.

I absolutely love the Connelly family and the town of Carson, NC! The 6th book in this series is about Ryker Connelly, aka the hot, sexy, famous, Ryker James as known by the fans of his band Exoneration, and Norah, Ryker's twin brother, Jameson's best friend. They have known of each other for years, but only just meet at their sisters wedding as she literally comes running in needing Jameson's help. She's in danger and Ryker is in love at first sight.

Coming Unplugged is book 6 in the Welcome to Carson series. I recommend reading from the beginning so you know the characters.

I really enjoyed the story line- a band singer and brother's best friend falling in love mixed with emotions and can't forget the love scenes.
Ryker and Norah are my favorite characters!

Norah seems to be in some trouble so she finds herself going to a town where her best friend Jameson is and his twin brother is also. Can they help her and we might see some other characters from their family. Loved Norah and rykers story!

This book had me intrigued from the beginning. I love these characters. I have been waiting on this book since I finished the last one (book 5). Norah and Ryker will heat up your Kindle. This was an action packed, emotional ride. This family will have you falling in love with them.

Ryker has heard so much about his brother’s best friend. Only he’s never met her with being on tour. When she crashes his sister’s wedding, he’s stunned by her beauty. Knowing instantly, he has to make her his. That he will protect her with his life...

Norah is in trouble and on the run. Can the brothers help her? Will she ever be safe?...

This book had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. It was action packed and full of suspense.
Really enjoyed this addition to the Carson Series.

Another great read by Renee. It was a little bittersweet reading Ryker's story because I know my time with their family is going to be coming to an end soon, and I love all of these characters so much.

Warning: DO NOT pick this book up and think you can put it don’t for one second.... It won’t happen. Why? Because you are going to want to keep reading Coming Unplugged until you’re finished. Yes. It is THAT good!!

I’m a huge fan of Renée Harless and the Welcome to Carson series and every time a new book comes out in this series it instantly becomes a favorite. Ryker and Norah’s story is no different for me. I absolutely loved it and I couldn’t put it down.

I've always had a soft spot for the best friend's brother romance. It may be the excitement of the sense of doing something that's typically seen as forbidden, or it could be that I had one of the biggest crushes on my best friend's brother ... either way they tend to pull at my heart strings. Throwing in the fact that the brothers were twins (again a weakness of mine) and the love a rockstar , hot damn I was prepared for something that made me feel all of the feelings. Alas, the only feeling my ...more

Ryker is a rockstar, yet he still feels less than his twin brother, Jameson, the genius, as if he's always in the shadows of him. Nothing has been able to change that, regardless of what Ryker accomplishes in his own life. A feeling that only grows stronger when, while attending his sister's wedding, a gorgeous woman runs right into his brother's arms. He wants her and is determined to have her, despite her relationship with his brother. Ryker refuses to be second best this time. He intends on w ...more

It will have you swooning, falling in love, in shock, in tears and wanting more. This is a Rockstar falls in love at first sight with nerd and it works like no other even if it is your brothers best friend.

This one is the book six from Welcome to Carson series that hinges on Norah and Ryker, may you can find another characters from the previous books too ;)

When I first started to read this series, I've never expected something like this. First we got Ryker, a member of a band and second, we have Norah, who worked in a device for the government and got in trouble. Two (totally) different persons, both are the opposite. I think this point made the book so great, so catchy!

Exciting, upbeat and fast paced, Norah and Ryker made me swoon. He’s a rock star who had never felt like he was enough. His twin brother had it all and he always felt lacking. He wanted what all of his siblings had. That one woman who would complete him but he had no clue where to start. Then, she crashed the wedding. The first look he was intrigued. The first words he heard her speak he was hooked. He knew he would do anything to keep her safe, to make her his.

Coming Unplugged by Renee Harless is book 6 in the Welcome to Carson series.
As much I loved the idea of a sassy nerd that gets caught up in a super secret project and the hot alpha male that’s drawn to protect her, it just fell a little flat for me. I just got stuck on the fact that everything happening to Norah in the beginning was so convenient and less believable and that may have coloured how I felt about the rest of the book. I also found it hard to believe, that given the parties involved

This is one of my favorite series. While there is a lot of passion and a little danger with the couple featured, that isn't why I love reading about the Connelly siblings and their significant others. I love the fact that there is instant family and support with whatever comes their way: love, babies, running from trouble, etc. And while it seems convenient that the family seems to have a connection to help keep them safe, it makes it for a fun read. I like that Ryker isn't a super alpha, even t ...more

When Norah has to run for her safety when her secret government project is stolen, she runs straight to her best friend Jameson and crashes a family wedding to get to him. His best friend's twin brother is a rock star. Ryker, as soon as he sees Norah, feels an instant connection to her and she brings out his alpha protective nature.

Norah is fiercely independent so having to ask for help and rely on others is not easy for her. She brings out Ryker's over protective side and finds him wanting more

Another amazing story from the Welcome to Carson series, where you just wish you could pack your bags and move to that great small town. Renee really brought Ryker's story to life in Unplugged. This story really took an unexpected twist making this already addictive series, unputdownable. Renee Harless brings the vibrant personalities of the Connelly family to another level with each book.

This story is on a category of its own; having a mix between second chance, insta-love, brother's best frien

I know I say this about all of the Welcome to Caron books, but this is my favorite. Ryker is the hot Rockstar who every girl wants to get with, and Norah is the smart girl who is best friends with Ryker's twin brother Jameson. Norah has known the family for years, but has yet to actually meet the elusive Ryker. She knows all about him form his family, so it's as if she knows him all along as well. But when Ryker sees her for the first time, he is drawn to her and doesn't know why. But when your ...more

I always love going back to the town and people of Carson City! This book was fast paced with action and some twists and turns. I am not usually a fan of InstaLove but this had a nice twist of the brothers best friend element as well. I fell in love with Ryker and Norah. I loved their chemistry and you could actually feel their connection. I found myself glued to the book needing to know what was going to happen next. Ryker and Norah were sweet and sexy and I could not get enough of them. I can ...more
