Rock Band Series: Rock Me Two Times (Book 1) Rock Steady (Book 2)
I recently just became a fan of Ryder's work with her series Unbroken Heroes so I thought I would give this series a try. This is the second book in this rock star series and honestly I didn't fall in love with storyline.
If you read the previous book you're familiar with the characters in the band but if you're like me and reading this series starting with this book then you're getting to know the characters like I am and I really hard a hard time liking them.
So we meet Ramsey who by the way comes off as gods gift to women anyway he got drunk and slept with a groupie. While under the influence the groupie decided to get him back by taking him to get a tattoo of cherry blossoms. Now to me this just sounded ridiculous but moving on. So he meets up with the rest of his band and they see it. They all agree it has to be fixed and find a tattoo shop that is open 24 hours where Ramsey meets Jewel.
Jewel graduated college with a marketing degree but she is working in a tattoo shop because she loves art and she is good at it. She meets the band and decides to help Ramsey cover up his tattoo after its done they part ways but the next day jewels ass of a boss fires her for being jealous that she did the tattoo and not him. Ramsey offers her to go on tour for 4 weeks to do add ons to his tattoo and she agrees. Sparks start flying and well you get where the story is going.
These characters did nothing for me. I didn't get them or there way of thinking. One minute Ramsey is a womanizer ,the next an asshole and then the savior. I swear the mans personalities were giving me whiplash.
Jewel was a little on the annoying side at times but I liked her fire and wanting to make it on her own no matter what the cost would be.
The storyline was just okay, Obviously I have never toured with a band so I have no idea if this is what they go through but at times I felt like it was a little over done. I can't imagine if these rockstars are as big as they seem why they don't have security 24/7?!
I think for now I'll be sticking with the Unbroken heroes series. I may not have totally fell in love with this book but that doesn't mean someone else won't. We all have our opinions. Of course their is more to this story I left out due to spoilers but if this sounds like something you are interested in I would definitely give it a try.
