Just plowed this intense and cool story of Jinx and Toombs!!! Itʻs now 6:37am and I have to catch a few hours sleep before work. I loved the human insights, the rip your – face – off intensity of Toombs, who could put more meaning into a barely raised brow than most men can with a Shakespearean soliloquy… Iʻm mad for this book in the best possible way. Kendall gave it to me raw and I fucking loved every minute of it!!! Iʻll write more of an actual review later, I’ve gota crash right now, lusting after Toombs but oddly sated ;P
I like Jinx, she is the opposite of Letty, her band mate, in many ways. Where Letty is brash and bluster, Jinx is reserved and thoughtful of everything going on around her. She may not light up a room like Letty but her slow burn intensity and laser like focus on what she wants, Toombs and the great back beats of the upcoming album, make her a show stopper nonetheless. She cares about her friends, her family and herself. She goes after what she wants with determination but doesn’t destroy everyone and everything to get where she wants to be. I love this book the best of the 3 but it’s my Toombs bias and also the fact that I read this one first as it was gifted to me for my birthday. I have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a double vodka chaser. The warnings placed at the start of each book in this series are legit and not just to garner attention. If you have to check urban dictionary for some of the acronyms mentioned in the warning disclaimer then you should probably stay away from this series, it is hard core, it is niche, and filthy good writing. There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. The Hard Rock Harlots series gives it to you with both barrels and doesn’t relent, makes no quibbling apologies for its rawness, and has its readers in thrall forevermore because of this ballsiness. Long live The Rock, those who make it, those who love it, and those who live and die for it.
grouse! Gifted it to six mates at the start of Dec 2013 (to coincide with the Nocturnes release date)
I love strong women who may not have all the answers and get kicked in the teeth by life more than once but pull themselves up by their bootstraps and soldier on. Let’s face it, life is pretty much a gutpunch for most people, most of the time. The little things must be made sacred, the only glue that holds our souls together sometimes is formed of small opportunities. Letty Dillinger, main moll of this novel, tries to embrace the small moments when they present themselves. She is funny, a great friend, sexy, loyal, strong, and honest. I would definitely go out drinking with her to see what kind of crazy adventures we could have. I love this book, this series, this author. I have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a double vodka chaser.

There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. This series delivers on plot, characters, and dirty, hot sex scenes. The Hard Rock Harlots series is not for the faint of heart or those who want to judge the choices that others make and can live with. It is an intense, pornagraphically intimate view of life on the road in a band in your carefree, hedonistic, twenties. And thank the rock gods for that!
In the Antipodes it’s called ice hockey. I try to go most weekends, during season and when I’m in the state/ country. I’ve just returned from a game. We lost to Newcastle, 2 – 0. They’re hard to beat every game, every season. I’m not a puck bunny. I’m the antithesis of such a notion. I’ve been following the team before they moved to their nice, clean, and resplendent rink. I followed them when they needed me to help out making sandwiches for the team on tour, buttering sandwiches on an ironing board, helping the mothers of the players and board members/ staunch supporters who travel with the team interstate… Before we won three championships in a row. Whether they win or lose, I’ll get outrageously drunk at the pub after it and talk a load of old bollocks to lots of people. Because that is what you do when you follow a team whether they win or lose.
Just because your new boyfriend (real or imaginary) plays (or wishes he could), doesn’t mean you should start showing up/ taking an interest. Oh, you only pretend to care because he does and you get paid in orgasms? That’s more like it, you mercenary, you! That was me being facetious. Yeah, I didn’t think you would pick up on the subtleties. Hence why I pointed out the glaringly obvious. Even though I am very drunk, post hockey. Currently having to triple and quadruple edit everything I type. I’ll move on to writing my magnum opus now. See you all at the bar… Or if you’re a real fan, at the game. Even when the team loses.
