Oscar night.

Rock star legend, Ashland Keys should be on top of the world, but the blond blue-eyed SoCal surfer is disillusioned with fame, done with drugs, bored with the groupies and sick of all the fake f*ckery.

A rising star, Fanny Bay is nominated for best original song in the same category as the Dirt Dogs band, but the novel redhead with the corkscrew curls and the slight Canadian accent would prefer to chart a course with a different destination.

Hollywood is not for her.

He’s full of regrets, darkness and secrets.

She’s full of hope and light and has mysteries of her own.

He’s her reserved hero.

She’s his gypsy rose.

He’s water. She’s fire. Together, they don’t make sense.

But he’s what she’s always wanted, and she just might be everything he needs.

 

 

Author Bio

Rock Stars. Romance. Redemption.

Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a BRUTAL STRENGTH centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock ‘n roll industry.

Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the TEMPEST series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.

Rock stars, myths, and legends collide with paranormal romance in a totally mesmerizing way in the MAGIC series.

Catch the perfect wave with irresistible surfers in the ROCK STARS, SURF AND SECOND CHANCES series.

Romance and self-discovery, the FINDING ME series is a Tempest spin off with a more experienced but familiar cast of characters.

Exploring the sexual double standards for women, the ROCK F*CK CLUB series is a what-if the groupies called the shots instead of the rock stars.

When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock or NOLA funk music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend.

Book Review: ‘Rock F*ck Club’ by Michelle Mankin

Title: Rock F*ck Club

Published: 24th April 2015

Synopsis:

10 cities in two weeks 10 famous rockstars. On my knees. Against the wall. On my tits

I don’t care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it. Why? Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

He told me I was too uptight. Too vanilla. Too boring. So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea. What I didn’t know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I’ve got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.

Rockstars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.

Hollywood is calling.

I get to choose which rockstars I want.

The stakes are high.

This sh*t just got real.

What could go wrong?

 

Review:

Walking in on your rock star boyfriend while he’s doing a roadie definitely means venting to your bestie and drinking tequila is needed, stat. The hypocrisy of it all is all Ravens’ thinking. How come it’s only men (specifically rockstars) who can choose when, where and with whom and not get judged? Why not women too? So in her drunken state she declares that she will create a rock f*ck club. Her plan is simple, 10 cities in two weeks with 10 different famous rockstars. She decides who and when to show the power of female embodiment. Rating the men as she goes to help others who might want to follow. What she doesn’t realize at the time is that said bestie was filming her rant, uploaded it to her YouTube channel and now it has 10 million views. Talk about a boost to the system when rockers are starting to volunteer to be one of her 10. So her and Marsha think why not and just go for it. What could possibly go wrong?

Her journey might have started out one way but what happens when you find the real thing before your journeys done? Falling at Lucky’s feet might have been the best thing that happened to her but is she ready to open herself up again? No, not really. She is suffering from pain in her past and until she deals with it she can’t move forward. Besides it soon becomes a bit difficult to back out when a production company offers a very large sum of money to create the RFC as a reality series. Raven is always thinking about others before herself and with the money she knows it will help those she cares for, but how far is she really willing to go. I liked that it wasn’t always an easy ride along the way. Showing sometimes you need to listen to those warning bells with some men and trust your friends. Raven was very much a lost soul at the beginning but finding Lucky and going on the journey for the RFC actually helped her get back to who she really is.

Lucky is your classic sexy rock star, British accent to boot, but had a hidden side too that not many see. Fiercely loyal to his family and from the moment he meets Raven you could see he wanted protect her too, even from herself at times. Man alive there was so much chemistry between them. You could cut the sexual build up tension with a knife. Intense doesn’t cover it but with the road she finds herself on she doesn’t know how to start something until it’s over. Will he be waiting at the end? He’s the only one who really sees her, not like the others. It’s starting to be all about perception near the end. Give just enough to be seen but hold back on what’s really real. She is becoming more aware of herself and yes she does get a little frisky with some badass rockers but its all part of reconnecting with herself again.

Loved the rest of the band – Rocky, Alec and Cody. Had a feeling about two of them being ‘closer’ than the publics’ impression. Sky was innocent in the way she acts and was a gentle presence throughout. You can see her feelings for a certain someone clear enough, lets see if he’s man enough to take and keep her. No messing with her my man or there will be trouble. Marsha was a fun character who has clearly been Ravens partner in crime for years and will continue to do so. Hopefully she will find what she’s looking for too along the way. I liked the Navajo influences throughout on her journey of rediscovery back to herself. Its like she came full circle back to her roots to see who she really was and who she really wanted to be with. Three guesses people?

4 out of 5 stars

I received this ARC from Give Me Books for my honest review.
