Syon wants Kate professionally and personally and he ll do whatever he needs to in order to have her in both capacities What I really found refreshing about this story was that there wasn t any overly dramatic crap that just makes a person roll their eyes The story is pretty down to earth and realistic The two argue, work through their problems, have incredible sex, and eventually figure out what each other needs I was instantly pulled in from the first few pages because of Kate s attitude, she s awesome Kate has a growing custom leather shop which she and her best friend have started When

people, but Syon is relentless in his pursuit of her and she s losing her willpower to say no.First half The beginning of this book wasn t going well for me at all I was getting really frustrated with the characters and the unnecessary drama that kept popping up Kate was giving me whiplash from her constant mind changing First she didn t want Syon, then she couldn t keep her hands off of him and then she was pushing him away and telling him that she was only there to work It was this back and forth thing with her and I couldn t keep up Did she want him or not Then you had Ramsey, Syon s band mate, who kept coming out of nowhere I wasn t sure if the book was going to turn into some threesome thing or not It was like the author wanted to tease us with the possibility but the little hints were just really annoying and I need Ramsey to get the fuck out or just join in and call it a day Then the drama with Kate and her friend Syon got all jealous and got into a fight with Kate s friend that came to visit her But then he never showed back up in the story Why put a character in just to add drama I just thought that was stupid and I didn t like how it causeddrama between Kate and Syon, after there was already enough problems between them Last half I m glad I stuck with this story because the ended did get a lot better once there wasn t the same back and forth between Syon and Kate When they both admitted their feelings for each other the story picked up and I got a lotinterested in it The banter between Syon and Kate got a lot better and I started to like how sassy Kate could be I liked how she didn t get all fan girl on the band and that she was able to make friends with the rest of the guys The band was really tight and had been together for awhile so I m glad there was no drama from a girl coming into the group Overall, I had my issues with the book but it ended up being a good read and by the end I couldn t put it down There were a lot of hints thrown in about the other guys so I m dying to get their story I hope Taz s is next I honestly had a hard time getting into this book Kate makes custom leather costumes Syon is a rock star who needs custom leather costumes When Syon first sees Kate, he s immediately attracted to her and convinces her to come on tour with them and make their costumes This book had an insane case of insta lust and, as with most books where this happens, I had a hard time connecting to the characters and their attraction to each other Kate started to annoy me pretty quickly with her judgement I honestly had a hard time

each other Kate started to annoy me pretty quickly with her judgemental views and goody goody attitude I was frustrated with her constant insults towards these guys and the two of them together annoyed the fuck out of me Kate was in constant battle with herself, one minute pushing Syon away and the next falling into his arms and then back to pushing him away and insulting him again.And then the author saved it.The moment these two finally succumbed to their attraction, the sex was insanely hot, and there was a lot of it Connections finally started to form, they started being honest with each other and Syon turned into a great H he was jealous, protective and possessive, just the way I like my rock stars I even gained some respect for Kate and how she dealt with the issues that had arisen I finally started to feel the butterflies and I enjoyed the angsty moments between characters I really enjoyed the character of Ramsay and I hope he will get his own book He s constant teasing of Kate and his friendship with Syon was funny and there are some scorching scenes involving the three of them Issues surrounding trust, fame and nefarious plots to keep these two apart kept me turning the pages, all in all this turned into a fast paced fun read and I would recommend it to hard core rock star fans ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Rock Me Two Times was an overall enjoyable read I thought the characters were interesting enough, even if I did hate the hero s name and kept replacing it with Simon instead Don t ask, it s just something I do I liked

hero s name and kept replacing it with Simon instead Don t ask, it s just something I do I liked that Kate wasn t a push over when it came to following her rules But all it took, was one sexy rock star to make her change her mind and all her preconceived notions along the way as well I don t blame her one bit though Syon, on the other hand, was a delicious package of dominant, sexy goodness with a head for business that separated him from any other rock star type I ve read Perhaps it was his military background that gave him that extra edge I don t know, but it worked for me I also found it too funny that the author compared him to the Goblin King in Labyrinth Now all I can think of is Syon in Lycra blue pants leaving nothing to the imagination LOLAnyhoo, I digress So what was up with Ramsey I was all for the three of them getting it on together, and the title even alludes to Kate being rocked twice, so I was so confused by this connection the guys had Kate was uncomfortable with it at first, but just when she was warming up to the idea Syon flips a switch and it is all becomes just him and Kate I didn t understand it, and I think it would have been far better had that been left out given the lack of follow through It was pretty easy to figure out who the bad guy was in the story making it predictable, but it also didn t deter from the story in any way I do have one question though Why did Kate have to sit out in the crowd anyhow if Syon was worried about her safety all the time Plenty of people watch from the side of the stage, right It seemed rather silly is all I m saying if he was that concerned So overall, there were a few inconsistencies I noticed throughout the book, but like I said it was overall still an enjoyable read despite a few hangups Now will I readabout the guys from Toxsin We ll see I received a review copy from the publisher author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review To read this andof my reviews, check out my blog Blending Perspectives Book Reviews Leigh s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.5 starsIf I m being honest, I m not sure if I was a rabid fan of this book It was interesting, the characters hadto them than first met the eye, I liked the ballsy ness of the heroine, the rock god status of the hero, and I would enjoy getting to see what happens with other band members But I just felt a disconnect throughout the story that kept me from truly loving it.Kate had me humming Elton John s Tiny Dancer LA Lady, seamstress Leigh s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.5 starsIf I m being honest, I m not sure if I was a rabid fan of this book It was interesting, the characters hadto them than first met the eye, I liked the ballsy ness of the heroine, the rock god status of the hero, and I would enjoy getting to see what happens with other band members But I just felt a disconnect throughout the story that kept me from truly loving it.Kate had me humming Elton John s Tiny Dancer LA Lady, seamstress for the band Being called on to remedy a leather wardrobe malfunction and supply Toxsin lead singer Syon Braden with pants that fit the apparently large package that appeared when he sang no, I m not kidding here , Kate is soon hired as the band s leather seamstress But despite her hard and fast rule that she will not date musicians, she finds herself quickly falling for Syon.For his part, Syon was sexy, smart and had a rock idol mystique that made him irresistible His passion for the music, coupled with his military background, head for business and his devotion to his fellow band members, made him a truly likeable hero He was dominant, intense, and just yummy.There was even a decent background story surrounding someone attempting to sabotage the relationship There was really little doubt who it was, but it still created a tension that worked well.What didn t work for me, however, was the instant intense love that formed between these two The sex was sizzling and I can see where the lust came from But the true affection It seemed too quick to be real or lasting, and they each had to constantly reassure one another that they felt it too.Then there was Ramsey What was going on here Syon s closest friend and bandmate, he was the devil of the group Beautiful and sexy, drawing you in with his good looks and a smile, while trying to corrupt you at the same time But I never could figure out the relationship Was Syon trying to pull him in to the sex with Kate Was Ramsey trying to get in on the action himself Was Kate even interested in him joining What the hell was really going on The issue was flirted with on numerous occasions, and I couldn t understand what the point of it was if he never actually joined in.I could have gotten past all of that if it wasn t for my main issue The conversations between Kate and Syon Their banter, their sex talk, all of it was just painfully awkward to me It was almost if they were having two different conversations and not actually talking to one another because none of their responses to each other seemed to make sense It distracted me enough to constantly pull me out of the book bubble to which I had escaped, and that s not a good thing.Like I said, I did like this book for the characters and the story, and I m interested to find out what the rest of the Toxsin boys are up to I just hope that the love growsorganically in these stories and the conversations are not so awkward Review copy provided for an honest review I swear this one took me on a roller coaster of a ride There were parts that I loved and parts that almost had me chucking my Kindle, and phone, against the wall Almost But in the end despite some issues I had I couldn t put the damn thing down I was at work doing the whole furtive glances around my monitor thing while being sneaky and reading on my phone Thank GOD for smart phones and reading apps That s how invested I was in this book and the characters that inhabit it There is quite a I swear this one took me on a roller coaster of a ride There were parts that I loved and parts that almost had me chucking my Kindle, and phone, against the wall Almost But in the end despite some issues I had I couldn t put the damn thing down I was at work doing the whole furtive glances around my monitor thing while being sneaky and reading on my phone Thank GOD for smart phones and reading apps That s how invested I was in this book and the characters that inhabit it There is quite a bit of sex, it is erotic romance after all, but there are some also some really interesting characters, and relationships between the characters, that balance it out.Kate s profession as a custom leatherwear creator was what caught my attention and for the most part I liked Kate I loved her passion for her craft and how for her, making custom leather garments, working with the media and seeing her pieces become reality was something ingrained in her soul But she did tend to contradict herself by her actions and at times was thoughtless with the things that would slip out of her mouth, but when it was brought to her attention that her words were taken badly she did make amends Syon is pretty typical to most rockers in the genre Larger than life, gorgeous, oozing sex and sensuality and filled withthan enough confidence to power a small nation But what I really liked about him is that he was honest He didn t play games He may get frustrated and react, badly But when it came to those that mattered he told it like was and either you believed him or you didn t.Their relationship was very insta attraction, which I got considering Syon is a rock god and I know I d be tongue tied if I actually met my dream rockstar in real life, and it was also very insta lust To give Kate credit, she did try to resist, but Syon definitely outsmarted her and I have to say I love how he did it It was pure genius, but it also showed how much respect he had for her and her craft The thing though with insta relationships and erotic romance is that sex is a huge part of them becoming closer, and I m good with that and the sexual tension between them was intense, but when it came to Kate and Syon I just wish there had beensharing of their lives going on We get bits and pieces and even then it felt skimmed over They connect sexually and understand each other on the level of an artist, but we never get to truly know about their pasts and this was one of my issues and had this book really only focused on Kate and Syon I would have rated lower, but there was another aspect of the book that I thoroughly enjoyed and that was the supporting cast of characters.I ve said it many times, but I adore well written secondary characters While the MC s are the main focus, I ve always felt that it s the supporting cast that helps to give awell rounded look,depth, to the MC s and the world in general and that s what happened here Ramsey, Taz and Drake, the other members of Toxsin, all captured my interest and I honestly feet as if I got to know them better than Kate and Syon And when anyone of them were in a scene with both Syon and Kate I felt as if we got to really see who they were underneath the surface And then there is Percy, Kate s friend and business partner, and all I can say is that I want my own Percyoh and Steve, because there can be no Percy without Steve It is because of him that I got hooked from the beginning He s simply fabulous There is a bit of a mystery to solve towards the end of the book and while I figured out who the culprit was, I liked how it all finally got solved and how everyone came together over it The writing was engaging, as I said I was hooked and couldn t put the thing down, and I like how she brought the trials and tribulations of being a rock star to life.The Bottom Line I m hooked and can t wait for the next one I hope Percy makes an appearance DARC provided by SourceBooks Casablanca via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review A Partnership With The Hottest New Rock Band, Toxsin, Is A Major Opportunity For Kate S Small Custom Leather Shop, But She S Determined To Resist Her Burning Attraction To The Lead Guitarist, Syon Braden Sex Is A Commodity In His World, And That S Just Not Enough For Her Or So She Thought With The Multiplatinum Success Of His Band, Syon Thought He Had Everything He D Ever Wanted And Then He Met Kate He Knows That Sleeping With Her Could Distract Him From His Music And Even Interfere With His Close Bandmate Friendships, But Despite All This, Syon Just Can T Seem To Keep His Mind Or Hands Off Of Her Hot rocker check Along with very hot band mates check A good girl turned bad check And last but not least some ultra steamy scenes between the hot rocker and good girl gone bad double check.This book was a one day read for me because I couldn t wait to see if Syon would be able to get Kate to crack and give in to her desires leaving business aside And what a business she had she was a costume designer who dealt with making leather pants for the hot rock band Toxsin Syon was the lead sing Hot rocker check Along with very hot band mates check A good girl turned bad check And last but not least some ultra steamy scenes between the hot rocker and good girl gone bad double check.This book was a one day read for me because I couldn t wait to see if Syon would be able to get Kate to crack and give in to her desires leaving business aside And what a business she had she was a costume designer who dealt with making leather pants for the hot rock band Toxsin Syon was the lead singer guitarist who had wardrobe problems with his leather pants not fitting him throughout their concerts And what was that problem you may ask well let s just say that he did not have enough growing room which he required throughout his concerts So in comes Kate to the rescue who happens to be one of the best leather designers around So, Syon hires Kate and her job is to make sure that the entire band is properly outfitted in leather pants during Toxsin s tour Oh the price she had to pay to make sure that Syon was at his post concert form to make sure that her leather pants would allow for growth I have to say that I would have liked to have made the template she needed in order to make the correct size for him Rock Me Two Times was a good look into the inner workings of a rock band that actually all liked each other and had each other s backs Although Syon and Kate were finding their way to each other Toxin s manager, Cid, thought that this relationship would be the ruination of the hot band and went out of his way to let Kate know that she was only really hired help So does Cid get his way and put that wedge between Syon and Kate and can Kate put up with all of the groupie interaction that follows Toxsin wherever they go I am also waiting for a book on each of the other band members Ms Ryder You created a very interesting group of hot guys that just need their story told too.I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review Very easy to read, good fun rockstar romance These kind of books are my happy place, my drug of choice amongst romance reads so i m, in most cases, guaranted a good time I wasn t disappointed at all with this one While watching the epic love between Syon and Kate unfurl was great reading, if not a little over done, it was Ramsey who piqued my interest so getting a glimose of book 2 and seeing its all about him has just left me a wee bit happier to find the next in this fun series.
