I want more, more, more...

Its Officially! I now know Jenna Jacob can write red hot rock stars. In Rock Me Harder, I not only loved Tori and Darren, but I am OBSESSED with them. The way they meet (backstage after the concert) is the reason why rock star themes and characters are my catnip.
The way their one-night stand progresses into forever was perfection. Together they fall fast and hard with one another. Living a life only partial fulfilled because the other piece of their heart is missing.

I've been an enormous Jenna Jacob fan from the earliest days of her incredible career--but I swear by a thousand guitar picks, there's just SOMETHING about the Licks of Leather series that has captured my younger, rock fangirling heart and will not let go.
This beautiful, original take on the hidden baby trope is blended with everything I most want and need from a rock god book. There's an unforgettable one-night stand, a press scandal gone wrong, plenty of horny groupies, and--ohhh ye

The second book in the series, but if you haven’t read the first book you will be able to follow the story. The story is about the guitarist Darren and it mostly shows the hard part of fame and that is having no privacy and being harassed by the press and certain fans.

There are no BDSM elements in this story and it is a bit of a slow burn, but it is a wonderful story of two people reconnecting and overcoming difficulties. Showing different lives with a common goal.
As a fan of rock star romances I found myself quickly captivated by Darren and Tori in a story that stands strongly on its own. Ms. Jacob crafted a hero with a big heart living in a world full of superficiality and introduced him to a strong-willed woman who sees the man behind the fame. Theirs is a journey full of heart and soul and with each turn of the page I cheered even harder for them to reach their HEA.

Darren Ash had a life-altering one-night stand two years ago, an encounter that he stil

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Tori Elizabeth Combs and Darren Ash. On night was all these two had before she was gone and Darren felt like something more like someone was missing from his life for the last 2 years. He has never forgotten that night and will do anything to get back the woman of his dreams. He looks at Burk and Sofia (who we met in Rock me Longer) and knows after seeing them that he can have true

To lose you is my worst fear....

Darren Ash has the reputation for being an in your face guitar player for the rock band Licks of Leather. But when he played his guitar, all he fantasized about was strumming the strings of a certain red haired beauty he shared an amazing night of sin with 2 years before. For the first time in his life he opened his heart and soul and poured out all his wishes and fears to her. She took off on him and he was crushed. He did not even get her number. He was determin

This is book 2 in the series, and I’m telling you, each one is going to be amazing! This time, it’s Darren’s story, guitarist extraordinaire, and nursing a crushed heart. After a soul searing night with the woman he truly connected with, he woke up to her gone in the morning and no way to contact her. Two years later after much searching, he finally finds her, along with quite a few secrets and a lot more questions.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rock Me Harder. It was so easy to be caught up in this love story. It has fabulous characters including an adorable 18 month old who will steal your heart. A fantastic storyline with some angst just to keep it interesting and hot steamy moments that will make you want to fan yourself. It just all works!

Darren Ash is a rockstar, gorgeous, talented and a man looking for something more than rabid fans that want a piece of him. Tori Combs is desparate to save her father

This is the second book of the series but if you haven’t read book one, like me, you will have no trouble following the story line.

Darren Ash is the guitarist for Licks of Leather, but his life is no bed of roses. Fame all comes with a price…and the fans and press all want a piece of him. The only person who really has a piece of him is Tori Combs.

Tori Combs has been through the wringer while trying to keep her family a float. She has had to make some difficult decision and is currently paying

That one night between Darren and Tori was electric, but who knew that it would give both their lives new meaning. Rocker Darren was betrayed after a night of bliss. Over 2 years he searched for his "Elizabeth". Who knew when he found her he would encounter his mini me. With so many an answered questions Darren needed the truth. Tori has to face the reality that her life would never be the same. She would always be in the spotlight after her night with Darren. This book is amazing. I read it in ...more

Ms. Jacob rocks it again with the second book in her Licks of Leather series. Darren and Tori had one night together but it was enough to leave a very lasting impression on both of them. He can't get over her and spends the next two years looking for her. At the same time, Tori has never dated since that night but she also knew she wouldn't fit into his world. Besides, he would hate her if he knew what she did! When he finally finds her, his world is literally rocked to the foundation from the s ...more

Loved the emotion! Wendy for Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog

This was my first Jenna Jacob book and wow! I loved Darren and Tori. Darren may be a rock star but he is grounded and very real. Tori has been forced to make some tough decisions in her life and as her story unfolds it is easy to see why she did what she did. Jenna created a wonderful story full of forgiveness, hope and love. I had to go back and download Book 1 I want to know all the band members stories. Can’t wait for more of this series.

Loved this book. Darren/Tori and Dustin are great, my new favorites. Licks of leather series is getting so much better. It was great with the first book of rock me longer but now it fantastic with this story. To see that both of Darren and Tori were pining for the other and then to see how Darren is with Dustin. Who could ask for more. I cannot wait for the next installment of this series. Jenna Jacobs has not disappointed.

So Beautifull!

I fell in love with Darren, Tori and Dustin's story! How destiny can pull you to your soul mate the first second you lay eye on each other. Then fate can pull you apart to then pull you back together and never let you go. Jenna Jacob wrote this from the heart to make you wish and dream of a love like she wrote here! Thank you. A must read.

OMG I laughed and cried reading this book, Jenna you rocked my world, to think a one night stand would end up being the love of your life, with the spitting image of yourself looking back at you the first time you see your son, never denying that baby is yours, the chemistry between the two of them and the entire band is truly amazing, waiting for the next book, thank you Jenna for such a great story, Dana

I struggled with this one at first I really didn't like Darren but he did grow on me lol. Tori was sweet maybe a little naive to think that her life wouldn't implode when people found out about her and Darren. He is definitely a take charge guy but it took him longer than I would have thought to make it there. These two do have insane chemistry and it is almost mindblowing. I will say the 18 month old pretty much stole the show for me. ...more

A swoon-worthy, second chance, rock star romance!

Years ago, due to extreme circumstances, Tori Combs ended up backstage at a Licks of Leather concert and caught the eye of guitarist Darren Ash. They spent an incredible night together, after which Tori virtually disappeared. Neither of these characters ever got over the other and Darren spent years searching for Tori...until he found her.

Although this is the second book in the series, you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one.

Darren Ash is the lead guitarist for the rock band Licks of Leather. On the outside, it looks like Darren has it all. However, Darren is still thinking about the night he spent with a woman that disappeared the next morning never to be seen again. Darren hires a private investigator to find her but nothing has turned up. He also found out the name she gave him wasn't real and he also realized that she betrayed him.

Review by: Jennifer
(3.5 stars)

After a one night stand left Tori pregnant, she just went on with her life, took care of her baby and making the best life she could. She left the father high and dry in his sleep and he has no clue as to how to get in touch with her. Until one night he shows up at her door. The rock hottie that she can't forget, the man that every other man can't live up too. Now, he knows the truth, but does this mean that he will forgive her? Can they have a second chance?

Darren and Tori started as a one night fling that ended with her sneaking out the door. He slowly found out she lied about everything but could not stop wanting her. After 2 years of having a PI hunt her down he finally comes face to face with her, only to discover his blazing desire never died and she had a bigger secret than her lies.

Tori hates herself for lying to him and keeping this massive secret from him too. But she , like him, never stopped wanting him.

I enjoyed the overall story better than the first of the series but what I find problematic is how liberal her characters are in calling women bitches. And calling women's arousal "cream". I found that to be a little cringeworthy.

Also, the 18 month old in the story is written as if he's about 3 regarding his vocabulary and motor skills. It threw me off a little.

What I did love was their chemistry. It was palpable. And I'm definitely interested in Ozzy's story coming next.

Ok while some of this book was predictable, I gotta say I LOVE Darren and Tori.

Overall it was a great, enjoyable read. Easy to get through and only a few cringeworthy phrases (the typical “lapping up her cream” type stuff).

I’m falling in love with this series and looking forward to the next book!
