Book Review: Rock Me, Gently by M. J. Schiller Giveaway

Like so many others, their romance started in Las Vegas…

He’s a rock star. She’s an ad exec. After almost having a one night affair in Sin City, Josh can’t get Cassie out of his mind. Why had she run out on him?

Like so many others, their romance started with a shot of tequila...

When the Josh Dunningham of Money Back Guaranteed tries to seduce her, Cassie is taken aback. Sure, he’s hot. And he could definitely rock her world. But can she have a fling with a man she doesn’t even know?

Like so many others, their romance turned rocky…

When Cassie returns to Chicago and finds a ten-foot tall Josh Dunningham on a radio station’s banner across from her office, she is tortured by memories of their short time together. When they meet again, things explode—in a bad way—and Josh has to prove himself to Cassie to earn her trust. But will he succeed when outside forces also want to tear them apart? When Cassie receives threatening letters and is attacked in her home, Josh is determined to find out who is behind it. But will the stalker’s encore performance bring an end to their show once and for all?

Rock stars are real people, just like the rest of us. The rock star is this book is amazing, with all his ups and downs. He is a real person (a real fictional person at least). Both Josh and Cassie are so real that they are easy to relate to. Everyone has previous heartbreaks that can make you hesitant. Both characters are very well written, we slowly learn about them as they learn about each other. You are there with them through it all. You laugh with them and cry with them.
Maybe not all rock stars are real. I hope there aren’t any like Lanny. From the very beginning, I did not like him (more like hated him). The way he treats women makes me just want to throw something at him again and again. But he makes the perfect bad guy, dark and evil (silently sitting in a corner).
The characters are great, the story is great, and the romance is sweet and sexy. The plot twists are captivating. The villains are nasty. If you like rock stars, romance or stalkers, you will love this book!
4.5 STARS!
