The Illusion Series (5 Book Series)

by D. Kelly

Even though it has been a wee bit since I’ve finished this rock star book series, I’m still emotional about it. This series gave me all the feels. There was not one emotion I didn’t feel throughout every single book in the series. Each character found a way to wreck me and put me back together again. It was so difficult waiting for each book to come out but luckily you won’t have to suffer like I did. Every single book is available right now. After you’ve finished each book, come back and check out my review. I’d love to hear your opinion on our rock star.

VIP Series

by Kristen Callihan

Idol by Kristen Callihan is the book that made me fall in love with rock star romance books. There was something about the vulnerabilities in the main character, Killian, that tugged at my heart strings. This man screamed book boyfriend material. Your girl was off the market for a long time with Killian. This series if the perfect mixture of naughty and nice.

Publisher’s Note of Idol

Libby – I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more. He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away? 

Killian – As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles. Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse —and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name. The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.

Drive by Kate Stewart

best rock star romance books

Drive by Kate Stewart is a rock star book like no other. If you are looking for angst, Drive is the book for you. I read this book in one sitting because it was just that good. I ignored the hubby and kids for “just one more chapter.” You know how it is. Are you looking for a standalone book? You’ve found it. It’s a true 5 STAR read!

Publisher’s Note

Music . . . the heart’s greatest librarian. The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia. At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm.

Then I received a phone call that left me off key. You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics. But when it came to the soundtrack of a life, how could anyone choose a favorite song? So, to erase any doubt, I ditched my first-class ticket and decided to take a drive, fixed on the rearview. Two days. One playlist. And the long road home to the man who was waiting for me.

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

best rock star romance books

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas was absolutely superb. This is one of the best rock star romance books took me by surprise. This book had me from the first chapter, which is rare.Misha is a singer/song writer who isn’t looking for fortune and fame but just to write and express himself. Ryen is like the rest of us when we were teenagers. She’s unsure of herself and doesn’t know where she fits in. She wants to love and accepted, even though she doesn’t know who she is. It’s truly worth the read.

Publisher’s Note

Misha – I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me. In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever… And that was the start.

For the next seven years, it was us. Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am. We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it? Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances? F*ck it. I need to meet her.

I just don’t expect to hate what I find. Ryen. He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch. Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.He could be gone forever. Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.

A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson

best rock star romance books

A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson was just what the doctor ordered at the time I read this rock star romance. You already know that with any book about rock stars there is always that one who had a fucked up childhood that scarred them for life, right? This book is no different. And it wouldn’t be a good rock star story if we didn’t have a beautiful woman who doesn’t care about his money or fame and loves him for him, right?

Publishers Note of A Stone in a Sea

Sunder lead singer Sebastian Stone is no stranger to trouble. It follows him wherever he goes. From his track record, he should have known Shea Bentley would be a problem. But the soft, innocent Southern girl was all he could see. All he wanted to see. Now they’re both drowning in a sea of desire, sinking hopelessly into a world of lust, and their passion refuses to let them up for air. No matter how much he wants that to be enough…Shea has an inescapable past. One she would do anything to keep running from. But some secrets never die. If her history is dragged from the depths, it could tear his world apart. He has to decide if she’s worth fighting the tide or if they should just sink like a stone in the sea. A Stone in the Sea is Book One in Shea & Sebastian’s two-part Duet.

Halo (Fallen Angel Book 1)

best rock star romance books

Publisher’s Note

Every day is a party for Viper and the guys of TBD, the biggest rock band in the world. But it all comes to a screeching halt when the lead singer walks out of the studio one day and never comes back.Ear-blistering vocals. Butchered lyrics. Fame chasers.

After months of lackluster auditions, Viper, the lead guitarist and resident bad boy of the group, is ready to find solace in the bottom of a bottle. Time’s running out and the pressure’s on to find a new singer, but it isn’t until an angel walks through the door that the band’s prayers are answered.Charismatic. Talented. Magic behind the mic. Halo is everything they’ve been looking for. With a voice to match his stunning good looks, it isn’t long before Viper’s taking notice. But there are several reasons this is a bad idea:

1.Interpersonal relationships in the band are discouraged

2.Viper has already broken rule #1—big mistake

3.Halo is straight

Too bad Viper’s body isn’t listening to his head—at least not the one on his shoulders. But you can’t fake chemistry, not onstage and certainly not off it, and Viper and Halo? They have it in spades.
As both men try to resist the fire blazing between them, and the band is forced to reinvent themselves, it’ll be a complicated rise back to the top. But from the ashes of what was, something beautiful is born. Something better. And when the world finally sees Halo stretch his wings, they’ll discover what it’s like to fall for an angel.
