I don't know where the humor is in reading about a selfish, childish, manwhore boy who has no regard for other people's feelings and uses his past traumas to treat others like garbage. No. I haven't found anything funny yet in a woman who for three years takes care of this baby man, endures all his shit because Oh! He is so handsome! No, nothing funny there. Just pathetic and that's all.

"Harry is the clown. Kade is the serious one. And Lincoln, well, Lincoln is their leader, but he is also a nar

I loved this rock star romance with a twist. Lincoln is a jerk, but he’s not your typical rock star. Oh, no. He breaks his own heart and that of the woman he loves so she can work toward her own dreams. Of course, that causes him to become a serious mess.

Lark doesn’t want to help the man who destroyed her, but here she is. Bound by a short-term contract to get his head and heart back on track. It’s a good thing she’s not a mess, because someone needs to keep whatever sanity possible to get thro

This book starts off making you die from laughter and then sneaks in a totally steals your heart. Even though the humor continues throughout the story I found this less constant hilarity and more totally addictive slow burn. And I am not usually big on a slow burn so that should tell you just how amazeballs this is!

This one had me laughing in the beginning. Lark is a PA for rock star Lincoln. The things he has her do in the beginning are very funny. Right from the beginning I could tell these two do not have the typical PA/ boss relationship. They both like each other more than friends but never let on to it. Lark doesn't want to cross the line because he's her boss and Lincoln doesn't want to cross the line because he doesn't think he's good enough for her. This one pulled at my heart strings a little bec ...more

Love rockstar books! Lark and Lincoln start off as employee/employer both secretly loving each other. I was really hoping one or the other would let his/her feelings slip. I really wanted them to get together! Good things come to those who wait...Their love story was beautiful. Couples that start off as friends usually have a stronger and longer lasting relationship. Great book that left me smiling.

Chronicles of a Rockin' Mess was a really entertaining book. It was as the title implies the chronicling events in Lincoln and Lark's relationship from both points of view. I really liked the slow burn and the dynamics between the two main characters.

This was a really enjoyable rockstar romance that I would totally recommend. S.E. Rose is a new-to me author and I can't wait to check out the Chronicles of a Hot Mess next. Chronicles of a Rockin' Mess by S.E. Rose will join the ranks

Lark is so tired of Lincoln’s crap that she wants to give it all up. She wants her music and peace. Lincoln has other plans but he has to get his life together. These two are quite hilarious in some ways and very serious in others. Excellent writing. Awesome storyline.

Chronicles of a Rockin Mess is one of the best best books I have ever read. This book had me crying and screaming at and for Lincoln. Lark had built such a strong wall around her heart because of everything she had dealt with in her Personal, Music and Business life, that she was afraid to let anyone in. Lincoln reminded me of the typical guy that thought tough love would be better than getting your heart broke. In the end though, it was so great to see that everything worked out for both of the ...more

I was granted an ARC from S.E. Rose for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Lincoln is a rock star, but acts out more because he has been suppressing his feelings for his PA Lark for so long. Lark had moved to LA at the tender age of 18 to hopefully break into the music business. For the past 3 years she has helped Lincolns band stay out of the social pages as much as possible.

Lincoln is an asshole, but he means well. He has trouble acknowledging his feelings for Lark and do

The rock star romance trope is high on my list of favorites, so I've read a TON of them, to the point where they started running together in my head and/or heart, so had to take a break from them for a cool minute. Now, I'm rambling about that for a reason, see, Chronicles of a Rockin' Mess isn't your usual run of the mill rock star romance, so I never saw it coming, and I LOVED it. I will admit at first, I was worried a tiny bit about it being the same ole same old, even though it was the brill ...more

An ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I've been in a major book funk lately when this one came across my kindle to review. I am so glad it did, because I needed this book! Y'all! This book is everything! I've never read an S.E. Rose book before, so I had no clue what to expect going into it. But I can never turn down a rockstar romance to read. It's my vice. I'm beyond thrilled that I've found a new to me author to follow and an amazing rocker romance to add to my list of favs!

A rockstar romance you won't be able to put down!

Lark has been Lincoln's PA for years, but has never acted on the massive crush she's had on him since the day they met. Linc's a total rockstar disaster secretly harboring feelings for Lark but using his philandering ways to push her away, believing he'll never be truly worthy of her. Having successfully pushed her too far, Lark goes off on her own to find her calling, but when the band gets desperate she agrees to temporarily return to get dutie

Chronicles of a Rockin' Mess will leave you in stitches. I love love this one. Lincoln is that rock star that can be kind of a dick. He has this huge heart and a side of him only his PA Lark really ever sees. I love Lincoln even when he becomes a hot mess. Lark, she will steal your heart. I love how she handles the rockers and how she takes control. You can feel the chemistry that is lightening hot between Lincoln and Lark from the start. I love how everything flows in this one.

This was a nice light-hearted read for me! There was a little drama, but not too much and it was a goo read. I give it a solid 4.5 outta 5 and do recommend it to others.

I totally could relate to Lark, with Lincoln, not as much. I totally get the @sshole vibe and cockiness, but this guy REALLY had that in spades and it took me a little bit to warm up to him. Thank freaking goodness SE Rose had his POV to read about why he was doing certain things- totally made up for some of the things that went

Lark is the personal assistant to the most complicated celebrity. She is also in love with him. She puts up with a lot. One night, there is more than she can take.

Lincoln realizes he feels more than he should for his right hand woman. With her holding herself back, he decides to find a way to let her go. Then the regret sets in.

I thought this book would be different. I am so glad I was wrong. This story has all the feels, and more. I enjoyed the action, banter, and definite angst. It all comes t

A page turning rocker romance with a slow burn that is well worth the wait. Typically slow burns aren’t my thing, usually I find them to be too drawn out, but in this story it all comes together nicely. When you finally get to the “good stuff”, it’s HOT! The characters are well balanced and lovable. There are laugh out loud moments as well as ones that will tug on your heart strings. This book is the complete package.

I loved this book right from the start. It pulled me through a whole range of emotions from laughter to sadness and everything in between. I fell in love with the characters and got so involved with what was going on I was talking to them in my head (not out loud mind you!!!). I loved following what happens to them and how their relationships grow and change. I really wanted to stay with these characters longer.

Lincoln is a rock star, and his assistant is Lark, and these two are secretly in love with each other. When Lark has finally had enough she leaves to pursue her own musical career. This is a beautifully written story, which is a humorous, steamy and slow burn romance. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner and highly recommend for all.

Lincoln really is a mess. A hot, cocky rockstar of a mess. Lark is his P.A. and I love that they dance around each other oblivious to what the other is feeling...while pretty much everyone else knows. I think Lark needed her own time to come into her own and Lincoln needed to see what his life was like without Lark. Then the fun, confusion, and chaos began. Fun book!

Not a Typical Rock Romance

This is a rock romance that gives you laugh out loud moments along with pulling your heartstrings at times. Lincoln is the “rocking hot mess” because of Lark. It’s a love story that grows throughout and chemistry that is always on the front burner.

Rock star personal assistant and nasty rock star.
He has "loved" her since she came to work for him but sleeps with a different girl each night, denying himself because he's unworthy. Gee, lucky her!!
