Release Day Blitz, Review & Giveaway ~ Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin


Title: Rock F*ck Club
Author: Michelle Mankin
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 24, 2017


Book Description:

10 cities in two weeks. 10 famous rock stars. 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.

Rock stars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.

Hollywood is calling.

I get to choose which rock stars I want.

The stakes are high.

This sh*t just got real.

What could go wrong?

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

 
“There will be no running away tonight, but even if you try I guarantee I will catch you.”


The premise of this book was an intriguing one and just from the blurb alone I was determined to read this with an open mind. It is true what people say though, when a man sleeps around he is a “lad” it ups his rep and gives him bragging rights, but when the boot is on the other foot and the promiscuous one is a woman, she is a whore and a slag. In a world of sexual equality though, what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Our heroine, Raven, saw this as empowerment, as her way of getting revenge on the rock star boyfriend who she caught cheating with a groupie, her chance to prove him wrong, she wasn’t vanilla, she was risqué and what better way to prove it…other than publicly.


“Please think carefully before you make your choices. Sometimes control isn’t all it seems to be. Sometimes it’s just a matter of knowing who you can trust to get you safely home again.”


Raven was a woman who had been hurt one too many times and after catching her cheating boyfriend it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Drunk off her face and with her bestie, Marsha, filming her rant, Raven depicts in all its glory her method for revenge, uploaded to YouTube and ten million hits later Raven has the television networks eating out of her hands wanting to televise the whole thing. Reality TV at its dirtiest. The idea was fun while drunk, but when push comes to shove the reality is a lot more daunting. Raven could never have guessed that she would meet her soul mate, but she has a contract to uphold and more rockers to fuck.

Lucky was a rocker from the UK and he was adorable from the very beginning, any woman would struggle to not fall for his charms and what not. I loved everything about him, his relationship with his bandmates and his sister at the top of that list. Lucky is not you’re a-typical rocker, he has standards, he’s no saint, but he is in control of himself and those around him. He takes his responsibilities seriously and when he loves, he loves hard.


“My heart. My head. You aren’t just inside those places now. You are the master of them. I want to please you. I want to inspire you. I want to always be yours.”


This was a journey of discovery for Raven, she had a lot of guilt about her past that was still a huge burden and then there was the situation with the ex. Raven was incredibly spontaneous, she lived by the sword and would probably die by it to, but underneath that armour was a woman desperate to be loved and accepted for who she was, not what everyone else wanted her to be. While this was probably not the answer it did wonders for her confidence and led her into the path of someone she never knew she wanted.

The whole Rock F*ck Club is and isn’t what it seems and I would encourage people to see past the synopsis and read the book for its content rather assumptions. The message throughout was well done, the supporting characters were as lovable as Raven and Lucky and the whole book was unputdownable. This was a one sitting read for me and while I shook my head at some of Raven’s decisions I was more than appeased by the end.


“Hope is hard to hold onto while I’m watching you with someone else….”


Michelle Mankin delivers a hot and steamy read and while the sex scenes are aplenty the ones that matter are intense, honest and real. I loved the emotional connection that I had to the two main characters and I loved the fact that this story did not go the way I anticipated. The dialogue was on point, the character connection was nailed and a unique, believable, addictive storyline was delivered. I am hoping that this is the first book in a series about the Dragon’s, all the band members will have a great story to tell and I am especially intrigued with Sky and Rocky and of course our MM couple Alec and Cody. So, Michelle Mankin, get your fingers poised, I want more!!
