Rock Star Romance | Book 1 in the Duet

Buckle up and brace yourself because the ending of Rock Star, Interrupted is a doozy! WHOA! I know to always expect some messed up endings when it comes to duets- the cliffhangers are always killer- but this one?!!? I can't EVEN! Why S.M. Shade had to leave me hanging like this is seriously messing with my head right now and if I didn't have a house full of people I would probably thro/>/>

Is there anything that Shade can’t write? Seriously that woman can write anything.

I happen to be a sucker for rockstars so I knew that I would love it and man did I love Axton.

I also really love Naomi and Caden. How perfect!!

I’m ready for book 2!!!

S.M. Shade is trying to kill me with that ending. HOLY FORKING SHIRT! Like, I cannot even with this ending. I need the next book so badly! I must know what happens with Axton and Naomi and I must know now! *insert dying emoji face here* I’m a sucker for rockstar romances and I flipping loved this book!

I love me some broken and broody characters and Axton was that and more. He’s our hero and rockstar in the story. The man clearly has issues and demons he’s fighting. Add to that a newly found bab

What in the living hell?!? OMFG!
The ending/cliffhanger was unbelievable! OMG!
I can’t even process all that came out!
I need to shout! Hit something...SEND HELP!
SHANNON SHADE what have you done?!?
It’s not fair... I need the conclusion.
Axton took a bit to understand and connect with but now I’m hooked on him.
Naomi was so perfect...I guess not everything is as it seems.
Ughhh..please just grab this book and read it. It’s effing perfect.

This book was AMAZING! Musician romance is in my top five favorite romance sub-genres but this one was written by S.M. Shade so I would have given this one a try for that reason alone. Everything I've ever read by her has hooked me and had me thoroughly impressed. And once again, this book shows why she's becoming a must read author for me.

This story had so much I loved about it. First was a broody hero with secrets in his past that I look forward to uncovering. Some of them were clearly heartbreaking

Holy S--t!! This book.... What a crazy ride!

Have you ever read a book and got that feeling in your upper chest. When your heart breaks so hard, it physically hurts... Yep that's gonna happening while you read this one.

Naomi is a strong heroine. She is loveable, kind, smart and sassy. She doesn't take crap from any one. Including the rock star God she's working for.

This was my first S.M. Shade book, but I'm such a sucker for rock stars, I had to check it out. And that cover? It drew me right in and fits perfectly with the story.

Ax is the lead singer of a newly successful band. He's leaning in hard to the rock star lifestyle, has no intention of slowing down, even when he finds out he's the dad of a 10-month-old baby. At first, I hated this man. I understood his fear, not wanting to change, but he made me angry. He didn't want anything to do wit

Rockstar Interrupted is the first part to the Tragic Duet and this story will draw you in with the erratic beat as Axton’s life is thrown into chaos with an unexpected arrival. As changes are coming hard and fast Axton is confronted with emotions he doesn’t like to deal with. Naomi is fiesty and doesn’t hold back and the broody rockstar is torn between loving and hating this new addition to his world. As danger lurks both in reality and in his nightmares Axton does everything to protect himself ...more

I love Caden (Hachet)!!! Axton and Naomi are super interesting characters leaving us with a cliffhanger. One star off for having to wait!!

I don't love Axton quite yet...he's obviously a rising rockstar feeling entitled to the lifestyle but finds out he's a father and the mother died leaving him a surprise. Caden is ten months old. A nanny is found through an agency.

It's a rough go of it for awhile. Axton was not thrilled about being a parent and there are apparently ghosts of his pa

I knew going in this would probably be one of those stories that leaves your head spinning, but holy cow. It has a cliffhanger that left me dazed. The characters are so real, and their lives are so real, that you feel like you've stepped into their world. Axton is something else. He has that attitude you expect from a sexy rock star, but of course there is more than meets the eye. Doesn't mean he doesn't make you angry! Naomi is someone Ax needs desperately. She has to put up with Ax and take ca ...more

Rock Star, Interrupted is book one of a duet! Yep, that means just what the sentence implies, CLIFFHANGER! Geesh this author is QUEEN of them.

If you have read this author before then you will completely understand that her cliffies are NEVER done in an understated fashion. What am I trying to say here? Buckle up and hang on cause this story is gonna take you on a ride. Wink!

Another thing I love about Ms. Shades style of writing, is you know you are missing facts that will give you greater unde

Axton is the lead singer of the band Tragic that is just taking off. A phone call will change his life forever. He has a ten month old son named Caden. He hires Naomi to be a live-in nanny and to go on tour with the band. Axton doesn't want his life to change but he can't abandon his responsibility to his son. There is a slow burn attraction between Axton and Naomi going on. Naomi stands up to Axton and puts him in his place about Caden and how he is doing as a father. The cliffhanger ending is ...more

I don’t even know what to say about that ending. I will say I loved Naomi and Axton. I loved that although they happened quickly, there was a nice buildup of their anger towards each other and some hot chemistry between them. I finished several minutes ago and my head still can’t wrap around the craziness of those last few chapters. I will be very impatiently waiting for the conclusion of this rock star duet.

So... that just happened! I ended the book with my heart pounding so hard. Axton and Naomi are seriously hot.... and then cold... and then hot again. Ugh! I love them! And Caden is just so freaking cute! I am waiting on pins and needles to get the next book.... that ending! Left me asking so many questions! Such a great read. And it was with an ending that I didn't see coming at all!

A cliffy I was not expecting...

I have been left jaw dropped and stunned.
I seriously have no words. It was better than great. I need the rest like yesterday. That cliffy has me mad. The characters have me hooked. Storyline is everything I needed. That cliffy ugh I already said something about it.

This is the first book in a Duet and let me tell you, you definitely need to read it. Amazing characters, and story line. As always SM Shade wrote a great story that just sucked me in from the very beginning. That ending too, just wow! I can't wait to get my hands on book 2 because that cliff hanger is a killer.

I don't even know where to begin because SM Shade left me for dead with that ending!!

But seriously, Rock Star, Interrupted is one hell of an angsty, emotional, fast paced ride that will leave you begging for more. Literally.

And baby Caden will melt your heart. I just wanted to give him all the cuddles!!

Ax, Naomi and baby Caden makes way for a fabulous rock star romance. And since it’s S.M. Shade you know she’s going to mess with your emotions.

So, right off the bat, Ax is an ass, but he’s a hot rockstar, with a complicated past so of course you know there’d never be any kind of drama with the nanny he hires for the baby he just found out about.

And then there’s Naomi, former teacher looking for a change, falls in love with baby Caden, of course she’d never fall for her boss... Oh, but is she k

This was the first book I have read by this author and it's also my favourite genre. So, to say I was super excited was an understatement. Give me a hot, moody rock star and I'm a fan for life.

Axton is your typical hot rocker. He rocks hard, plays even harder and everyone wants a piece of him. Sometimes when the opportunity arises, he'll partake. He wouldn't be human if he didn't. However, life is about to throw him a huge curveball, som

Rock Star ,Interrupted by S.M .Shade was a sweet and sexy story with a healthy dose of heartbreak and angst. You will get everything that you expect from a rockstar romance. Bad boy and sexy as sin Rockstar with arrogance, attitude and baggages. A surprise baby who will win your heart. And the nanany; a beautiful and strong woman caught in the web of attraction, glamour and danger that is going to turn their lives upside down.

This is the first book of the duet and it ends with a cliffhanger.

Rock Star, Interrupted was a great 5+ star read and book one in the Tragic Duet series.

All I can say is, you are killing me S.M. Shade, how can you end it like that. Now I’m impatiently waiting for the next book in the series. I have to say this is one of the best rock star reads I have had in my hands in awhile

An addicting story with great characters

Book 1 of the Tragic Duet, I’ve been a fan of this author for a while now, and rockstar romance is one of my favorite genres, so when I heard about this new book, it was a no brainer to move it to the top of my TBR pile.

We know right away that Axton has issues with his father, so when his inner a-hole comes out when he finds out he has a child of his own, it was clear that his behavior was to mask his fears. Naomi is calm and practical, and I loved how sh
