Don't fall in love with your bandmate's girl.

It's an unspoken rule, and one I'm determined to follow. I've always been the guy to take the high road, to be the voice of reason, but when it comes to Jess I'm tired of fighting this overwhelming attraction.

The more time we spend together, the more compelled I am to show her she's worthy of love and dreams of her own. The line

{I received this as an ARC in exchange for an Honest Review}
This was such an amazing story! Filled with heart-break and longing. A forbidden romance between and rock star and his bandmates girl. This was such a great rock star romance. I couldn’t put it down I read it in one day. It pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go! This deals with serious issues and it is all written perfectly. I love this book! This book has so much angst! I love Sean and Jess!

Derailed is a wonderful read. A well written book that has a beautiful, emotionally moving storyline. The characters are complex and engaging. Jess is such an amazing character and her story is sure to break your heart. Sean is just a genuine great guy. Together these two create a couple that is perfect for each other, impossible not to fall in love with and make you wish with your whole heart for a HEA for them. This is a book that deals with hard issues and as in life things are very rarely ju ...more

Wow, where do I start my review after reading this incredible book? Derailed is the 2nd book in the Off Track Records series, a rockstar romance series. If I thought Detour was an excellent book, Derailed is even better! This was such an emotional packed read, I needed a few tissues to get me through this one.

Jess is such a beautiful broken girl. Her story is so incredibly heartbreaking, I teared up more than once during her story. Sean is such a sweetheart! I loved his character so much, he is
Lisa Marie ~ Words We Love By

With Derailed, Kacey Shea takes us back to the rock star lives of the 3 Ugly Guys band which was first seen in Detour. This time bassist, Sean is the one in the spotlight. Easy going Sean takes a big hit to his conscience when drummer Iz collapses on stage and is sent to rehab. Things don't get better when the band's manager puts them on house arrest lockdown and needing to finding a new drummer only a few months before their summer tour doesn't make it any better. Especially when a doe-eyed bea

"Don't waste another someday."
This was my seventh novel by Kacey Shea and I just can't get enough o her! I am having such a hard time disliking any main character she throws at me but I wouldn't have it any other way! My heart will always belong to Tate but Sean has definitely given him a run for his money on this one. (If you don't know who Tate is yet, then you need to get to reading Kacey's novels asap!)
Anyway, this is the second book

4.5 Stars!

Man, I loved this book!

The guys of 3UG are back and it is Sean's turn to be front and center. The sexy bassist will steal your heart, so watch out!

There is so much I want to tell you, but I really can't without spoiling and I just don't want to ruin this book for you! The book is emotional. It deals with some pretty tough topics, but I must commend Kacey Shea on how she wrote this. Jess and Sean's story is beautiful and difficult and it will grab hold of your heart. Sean is quite near

This book stole my heart. Simple as that. DERAILED was my first book by Kacey Shea and it surpassed, and crushed every thing I look for in a book. Jess and Sean’s story dealt with some heavy topics—some I didn’t expect—but Kacey did a brilliant job with both the topics, and bringing the authenticity and care these characters deserved.

I love the fact that Jess and Sean’s relationship was built on much more than just an initial physical attraction. They built a friendship first and foremost. S

I was really looking forward to reading about Sean since he was introduced in Detour. I’m glad his book was second. It didn’t disappoint. Although all the members of the band are essentially nice guys Sean has a huge heart and I love the interaction with his family. Jess’ story is heartbreaking and unexpected. This is a well written book with a sensitive subject. I enjoyed this one a little more than Detour. The story and characters captured my interest more. Definitely read this story about Sea ...more

Lots of angst and fantastic writing. Kacey Shea is another new-to-me author and I really enjoyed the emotional ride! Sean, you are one hot Ugly Guy ;)!! Jess's story broke my heart at times, but I love the way Sean lifted her up. Without giving anything away, there was one character I HATED and wanted to rip his balls off. Overall, Derailed was a an emotional ride and I'm looking forward to reading more of Kacey Shea's books! ...more

I freaking LOVE this series! I loved Trent's book, and I love Sean's book even more!

I was thinking about how I was going to write this review before I even finished the book. I want to be able to convey to you how amazing it is, but I feel like I don't have the words to describe how much I loved this book.

She writes Jess perfectly! She is able to really convey what it's like for a girl in an abusive relationship. Jess always blames herself, but she shines bright at any sort of affection Coy gi

Awesome read. A beautifully written story It was heartbreaking and gripping; packed with drama and I couldn’t put my kindle down. You should add this to your TBR shelf, because it’s certainly worth reading. My first go round with this author and I loved every minute of it.

Derailed is one of those books that just takes hold of you from the very first page. You jump in and don’t look back. I actually, read this throughout the night and stayed up way past my bedtime. All Kacey’s fault!

Jess and Sean’s story isn’t an easy one. It’s not an easy romance. Jess has her past demons that she can’t seem to run away from. But the primary thing holding her back is her douchebag boyfriend Coy. I connected with Jess on a personal level, that might be why this book took hold of m

I'm so happy to bring this and the rest of my Off Track Records novels to audio.
Jason Clarke has such range and his ability to create distinctive character voices and maintain them throughout blows me away. He takes on Sean's character with such heart and is the perfect compliment to the female POV chapters.
Emma Wilder steals the show with her gutting performance. She portrayed Jess's vulnerability, brokenness, and in the end strength and growth. My heart was racing at the intensity of it all

I have never been so nervous in my life for a character; I honestly can't say when was the last time that someone getting hurt in a book got to me because Coy was just so normal. And Jess was so relatable. This was not an outrageous plot and because it was simple and so complex at the same time, I couldn't get away from it's pages. You know when you watch a movie and you know the bad guy is coming and you scream at the victim, WALK AWAY!! that's how I felt about Jess every time they went

Coy the douche canoe....

Ok first off I caught myself wanting to throw my kindle. Let me tell you why in one word "Coy"!! I did not like his character at all. Then for Jess to take everything he dished out just ticked me off!! That Girl needs some serious work on herself. Thank gosh for Sean. This book made me mad for Iz the former drummer too. I mean why didn't his fellow bandmates have his back more?? That upset me and again thank gosh for Sean. This ended up being a good addition to the series

Wow, I loved Jess and Sean's story, it was not a easy journey. I haven't hated a character in a book in long time, Coy made me so angry, I wanted to get rid of him. Jess has been through a lot and it has left an impact on her, however, when she meets Sean, all bets are off. She learns to acknowledge her strength and dreams. Sean had me swooning from the beginning. He is a pillar of strength and compassionate, which Jess needs. I thoroughly enjoyed reading their story, see them evolve, and wanted ...more

I have never felt so angry while reading a book as I did Derailed. I seriously hated Coy. He had some endearing qualities a very few times, but for the most part, he was self centered. My heart broke for Jess, as her personality and her past were slowly revealed.
Now with all that said, DERAILED IS MY FAVORITE OF THE 3 Ugly Guys group! The heart, emotions and the caring for each other solidifies their brotherhood. They aren’t just a boy’s rock-n-roll band, but true friends, which is tested in Der

Oh my goodness after devouring Detour back in May I just knew that I needed to get my hands on Sean's story right away because I absolutely loved his character in the first book in the Off Track Records series! Of course the wait was certainly well worth it and I couldn't put the book down until I finished it because I found myself falling more and more in love with these characters.

I absolutely loved the first book in this series Detour. I'm a sucker for a good rockstar series and Kacey Shea just keeps delivering the goods. When I saw the next book in Off Track Record series was coming out, I jumped at the chance to review. But let me tell you Shea is at her best with Derailed.

I first fell for Kacey Shea's fictional rock band when she introduced them in her Uncovering Love series. So to say that I am a little addicted to the Three Ugly Guys is an understatement! Now that we have seen 3UG on tour in Detour and experienced the love between the lead singer and their opening act, Kacey Shea takes us back into their muscular arms for a little down time in their home and a front row seat to the deliciously sweet bass guitarist

This type of storyline is a hard one to pull off. I did not expect to FEEL so much with Shawn's story. I didn’t think it was possible to love the main character duo like I did with Lexi and Trent. But I did, Shawn is so caring and compassionate that no one has a chance against his heart. Jess... I don't even know what to say but I was rooting for her. I was in her corner and wanting nothing but the best of things. You won't get 5 minutes into Jess's and Shawn's book b

This is the first book I've read in this series and I can't say too much about this story without possibly giving things away. But I will say this...this book takes you through a deeply emotional journey between Jess and Sean, and the obstacles they face to be together.
Jess has some serious demons in her past that she's struggling with, and her low self esteem causes her to put up with the way her current boyfriend Coy treats her. Feeling obligated to stay by his side, and making excuses for him

I fell in love with 3UG in Detour which was Trent and Lexi's book. Getting deeper into the group and their crush of keeping a good drummer may be at the end with Coy. Sean has always been the calm one of the group but when he sees Coy Wright's girlfriend Jessica "Jess" Moore, he is anything but calm. Jess has a past that makes her feel unworthy and Coy has been the one to be there for her, so she puts up with his heavy hand and ang

Kacey Shea has done it again! I loved the first book in the series, Detour. I could not wait for this second book in the series about Sean. He was such a likable character from the first book. This book did not disappoint. The journey Sean and Jessica has to endure for their HEA was so emotional and full of obstacles. My heartstrings were yanked on throughout the book for the heroine, Jessica. It was painful at times but so rewarding to see the growth of the characters. We also get to see our ot ...more
