Rock is LIVE...


He had it all. He lost it all. And all he wants now is a second chance.

RK Saber ran from tragedy five years ago when his car went over the side of a mountain in a prom-night crash. Consumed by guilt, he walked away from Juilliard and morphed into Rock, front man for the global rock-band sensation, Son of a Jack. Five members. Five best friends. Five rising stars burning so bright, they had to know it couldn't last.

When tragedy strikes again and the band goes from five to two, RK is sentenced to... home. Back to the place where all his nightmares started. Back to the memory of all the things he lost. Back to the reality he refused to face before he left.

The Vetti twins were identical in all ways but two. Melanie was insane and Melissa was not. One twin was killed on prom night five years ago and one twin was not. And now that RK has returned home, the twin left standing has quite a story to tell. Could she really be the girl he thought he'd lost forever? Or is Melanie just up to her same old tricks?

ROCK is a rock-star romantic suspense by the New York Times bestselling master of twist, JA Huss.

MY REVIEW (Brandi)
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review


Holy motherfucking shit what did I just read?! Oh, right, I read a Huss novel. I knew she'd blow my mind, but damn. I didn't see it happening like this. Where is the 6-star option?!

I don't know how to do this book justice. What can I say? I love Rock. His story is both hot and heartbreaking. It's a complete mindfuck of a book. 

Rock is forced to go back home after a tragic accident leaves him unable to speak and on a type of house arrest--the type that is county wide and not limited to his home. He doesn't want to be there. Too many painful memories of his childhood, his lost love, and the town that he ran from when things hit rock bottom. He had to leave and now he is back. 

Melissa and Melanie Vetti are the girls next door. TJ is Rock's brother. The four are inseparable during their childhood. Prom night changes everything. 

After prom, Rock's world is turned upside down. He leaves his home and heads for LA. There he becomes famous. Headlining a world tour, he and his bandmates are unstoppable. So, what stops them? How and why does Rock end up back in Grand County? And why can't he speak to his drummer, Kenner? What's happening?!

This is where I leave you, with a bit of the story, but nothing to really tell you anything. JA Huss is a genius. I'm not sure if I can ever say that enough, but this book had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I became hooked and couldn't stop reading it. I had to know what happened. I had to know who I could trust. I had to know the twist because it's Julie and there is always a twist. Just when you think you have it figured out, you don't. Don't even think you know what's gonna hit next because it probably won't. Or it will and it'll be 1000 times more than you ever thought possible. 

Julie has a way of showing us the darker side of the mind (remember Merc?). And it's a ride like no other.
