"Off Your Rocker (The Rock God Series #1)" Reviews
dnf - 1*
I just wanted something super easy and light. I was not looking for quality. I wanted candy floss and instead got a rotten apple.
I knew right from the "note to readers" that her writing was not particularly good. She warns the reader that the spelling and words are those of the UK. In two paragraphs she repeats the phrase "this book has been written in UK English" twice. I should have realised she needed to repeat it because you would need the retention span of a gnat to enjoy her writing. It is hard to believe an adult wrote this. If a 14 year old girl wrote about a 27 year old spoiled brat this might be the result.
Lia (Delia) is a self confessed daddy's girl. He owns the Hyatt hotels in the UK but somehow his 27 year old daughter has never gone to uni or even out to anything other than the country club and tea parties. Really? She is the narrator and a boring one at that. She talks about herself in a manner no 27 year old would. Still I persevered because who knows maybe once the MMC shows up it will be better, right?
Wrong. Colt ran hot and cold for the bit I read. He seemed ok and then he would totally ignore Lia despite having never felt this way about any woman. oh please! They go out to a bar and have "frosty" beer (seriously in the UK after the note to reader about getting used to UK language and euphemisms?) They then down 1/2 a bottle of Jack Daniels each and make out in the hallway. But somehow on the way to the "black stretch hummer" he lets a groupie take her place. The next morning he is all apologetic and says nothing happenned since he had too much to drink and passed out. Then he talks her into coming on tour with the band and promises her and her daddy he will take care of her. She is petrified of flying so he gets her drunk and they have sex in the bathroom. She is mortified to find the other band members and groupies were huddled outside the door and listening. She goes back to her seat where she gets upset and they have a bit of a tiff. He leaves and gets on the phone and organizes something nice for her at the hotel they are going to. Yet somehow when he is done that he ignores her for the entire rest of the flight and even all the way to the hotel. This makes no sense. It is both inconsistent and assholeish.
At this point I decided I needed my brain cells to stay intact and started to look for a new book. May I never read this woman's drivel again.
3½ Rock and Roll Stars
Ok I have to be brutally honest, I had major issues with the book early on. I couldn't connect with any of the characters. Lia was just a spoilt, socialite, Daddys little rich girl and that made it difficult to warm to her and the fact was, I just didn't think anything could make me like her.
Delia 'Lia' Norman is cruelly dumped by her boyfriend on Valentine's Day and decides to drown her sorrows in the suite at 'Daddy's' Hotel in London. She soon realises that the Penthouse next door is being occupied by the Rock Band Slayed (No similarities to the seventies glam rock band with the dodgy hair) and she is soon introduced to Colter Slade (Colt). Apart from the fact that Colt was an insanely attractive Rock Star, I found it difficult to get a feel of his personality other than the fact that he took alpha male to the extreme with his overly controlling persona and it was the antagonist, Jessi that stood out the most for me. The fact that she was a complete bitch was clear from the start.
I was seriously struggling and I don't know whether that was due to the characters, the overall flow of the story or me, myself that was the problem, anyway let me tell you that all changed in a big way. The characters suddenly burst into life, Lia found her inner rock chick and Colt found a tender side and curbed the controlling ways without letting go of his alpha tendencies.
One thing that was clear from the beginning too, was that the sex was sizzling and although the chemistry wasn't necessarily there at the start, once the story gained momentum, so did the chemistry.
There is a major turn in the storyline that gave the book a much harder edge and that alone had me glued to each and every page.
I don't think I've ever read a book that has done a complete 180° quite like this book and what I have been left with is a thoroughly enjoyable start to the series and a need to read book 2.
THIS WAS THE FIRST BOOK I READ BY AUTHOR K.E OSBORN. I CAN HONESTLY SAY I WAS COMPLETELY ENGROSED IN THIS BOOK FROM THE MOMENT I STARTED READING.
AFTER MEETING LIA THAT FIRST NIGHT COLT IS DRAWN TO HER LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME.HE CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF HER SHE MAKES HIM FEEL THING HE NEVER THOUGHT HE WOULD AGAIN AFTER HIS EX.HE WAS HURT BY HIS EX AND NOW HES LIVING LIKE A ROCKSTAR WITH LOTS OF WOMEN AN NON-STOP PARTYING.
LIA IS SCARED AND EXCITED THAT SHE IS FALLING FOR THE ROCK GOD.THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN COLT AND LIA IS SIZZLING HOT, THE LONGER THEY TOUR TOGETHER THE HARDER THEY FALL FOR EACH OTHER.
IS IT LOVE OR LUST?
THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS HOLDING COLT BACK,WILL HE GET OVER IT AND TELL LIA THE TRUTH?
COLT IS A WALKING SEX GOD HE'S REALLY CARING SWEET, AND HE'S REALLY POSSESSIVE.
LIA IS A DADDY'S LITTLE PRINCESS WITH A LOT OF INSECURITIES. SHE IS REALLY OUT OF HER ELEMENT WHEN SHE GOES ON TOUR WITH THE BAND.
I WAS ONLY 14% INTO READING OFF YOUR ROCKER WHEN I BURST OUT IN UNCONTROLABLE LAUGHING. THEN I WAS ON THE EDGE OF TEARS WHEN I GOT JUST OVER HALF WAY THE PAIN AND THE HEARTACHE LIA GOES THROUGH AND THEN NOT TO FAR FROM THE END COLT SAID SOMETHING THAT HE'S BEEN FIGHTING. THREE WORDS ,MAGIC WORDS IS ALL HE SAYS AND MY ARMS INSTANTLY COVERED IN GOOSE BUMPS.THEN WHEN I GOT TO THE END AND I GOT TO THE END AND I WAS LIKE A GOLD FISH, MY MOUTH OPEN WIDE.I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANY SPOLIERS BUT IT WILL LEAVE YOU STARING AT YOU KINDLE IN CONPLETE SILENCE ASKING YOURSELF W.T.F JUST HAPPENED.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING THIS BOOK TO ANYONE WHO IS A FAN OF ROMANCE BOOKS. YOU WILL LOVE IT.
Until the end of time...
Damn, K.E. Osborn, way to cause a nail biting, sighing, gasping, melting, page-turning, sleep deprived reader to swear at her kindle! Not only because it was awesome, and not only because you left me hanging, but because I know what swearing does to Colt. (wink-wink) You made me fall in love with all the Slayed band members, yes, even THAT one...smh. You made me yell at Lia because she was such a Little Bean, but then you made me proud of her as she started sprouting and acting like a bada$$ rock chick. You made me need a cold shower after reading about Dominant Colt, and then you made me want to throw my kindle at him. Off Your Rocker was a roller-coaster ride that I wouldn't have missed for anything. It was a heart-pounding thrill ride, and I'll be standing in line to hop on the next one in this series. In the mean time, while I'm waiting, I might try playing some drunken Twister to see if it's as fun as it sounds.
OMG....what can I say.I read a lot and this is one of the best books ever!!!The story of Colt and Lia completely took over every emotion. The rock star lifestyle and the love story mixed together awesome and that ending!!!!I went from the last word to instantly one clicking the next book in this amazing series. Thank you K.E. Osborn for creating this Rock God for us to fall in love with!!
