Theme of the day:Rock Bands

 I haven't done a theme of the day in a while and i just finished with these books not to long ago.
Today's Theme of the Day:Is Rock Bands
Title:Rocked Under
Author:Cora Hawks
Nineteen year-old Emma Harrington’s number one rule is; Never give your heart away to a man, no matter what. That lesson was learned early on in her life and she will never forget it.

Starting over in the USA, Emma starts college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do and live how she wants and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.

That is until Scott Mason walks on stage…

Intense, bad boy Scott is the lead singer in a local and popular rock band. Ladies man and Ashley’s longtime friend, Emma is instantly drawn to him, even though he is everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette; light it, use it, and lose it.

For her cousin’s sake, she makes an effort to get along with Scott. She soon discovers that there is more to Scott which makes him even more dangerous in her eyes. Underneath the façade of friendship; jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurities, fester and battle it out as she fights her attraction and history from repeating itself.One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.

 Warning: Contains mature content — recommended age 17+.

Cover: The cover model absoluty screams bad boy rocker which fits with Scots image

My Thoughts:This wasn't my usual type of read but it was enjoyable none the less.Some time i like a book about a bad boy falling head over for his girl, this book was just that and I was sold.... Things you'll find while reading  Loads of  Angst.Check  Hot man whore lead singer.Check. Infuriating couple who can't get it together.Check Sexual tension - check *swoon* S i know i this is not the best review but don't let that stop you from checking it out.You won't regret it.3/5

Title:Rocked Under
Author:Jean Haus When family problems push Riley Middleton into giving up a percussion scholarship in another state and attending college from home, her friends push her to try out for a local rock band. Of course, Riley makes the band. She rules at the drums.

Riley soon finds out rock bands have a different dynamic than marching bands, especially when each of her male band mates has a major ego and is a major player. Two of them relentlessly flirt with her. The other—a dark, sexy rock god she can’t help being attracted to— is a total jerk and pushes her to quit. She becomes determined to ignore his rudeness and his hotness. Even if she was interested in jerks, a hook up would probably get her booted out of the ego-ridden band, and playing keeps her sane. Behind the drums, the world and its troubles evaporate.

If she wants to stay in the band, Riley needs to ignore the growing sparks between her and her band enemy. But as she gets to know the man behind the stage persona, ignoring him proves to be more difficult than flowing through a time sig shift.

The Cover:Maybe it's just me but i didn't like the cover.I would have found it awesome if it had a female drummer on the cover since that's not something you see on a book cover very often or ever really....
My thoughts : Riley Middleton has given up a percussion scholarship out of state, made the choice to attend the local college while living at home, and pretty much singlehandedly runs the household. Romeo is the bad boy guitarist who surprise surprise has a heart of gold.I adore Riley and Romeo  together they have so much chemistry and sexual tension and are two interesting characters.This book was hit or miss for me but towards the middle i changed my mine.So give it a shot maybe you might like it too. 2/5
