Blurb

10 cities in two weeks. 10 famous rock stars. On my knees. Against the wall. On my tits. I don't care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it. Why? Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

He told me I was too uptight. Too vanilla. Too boring. So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea. What I didn't know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I've got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.

Rock stars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.
Hollywood is calling.
I get to choose which rock stars I want.
The stakes are high.
This sh*t just got real.
What could go wrong?





"We'll hit the concert scene in ten different cities and rank the rock stars we fuck along the way for the betterment of all womankind so the sisters who follow us don't waste their time on losers."
"We'll call ourselves the Rock Fuck Club."
Waaaay to grab a readers attention is a title and a blurb as a bomb as Rock Fuck Club. Damn! When my blog sister showed me the link, I was so excited to get my hands on the book. That blurb had me stat I feel like I have heart eyes while waiting for the book to hit my reader. This is Rock Star romance plus an interesting blurb,it did not just sound so good but so promising the perv in me wanted to cave in as soon as possible because man it gives me the tingles. Let's face it, this book would really grab your attention. For once, it's the heroine that will definitely rock our world. So game on RFC sisters...


As the blurb speaks and the first two chapter Michelle Mankin posted, no wonder this will be a hit. When I started reading it, I cannot help but devour the book. It started on point and what I like about it is the fact that Michelle's writing style is easy to get with. The character's lives were way too complicated so I appreciated wholly that the book's writing is simple and I can easily connect with it. So really devour I did. 
"Why do chicks always have to be the ones to take whatever a guy wants to give us? Why can’t I point out what looks good to me, crook my finger and get what I want for a change? Why can't I get some cute rock star ass without it having to mean anything? Why can't we fuck ‘em then leave ‘em?

First few chapters and I am loving and enjoying the flow of the story. I love the thought of girl power going on and I was looking forward to all the dirty and filthy things these besties were bound to do. Isn't it mind grabbing? A hot heroine and her bestie in their pursuit of ending the boring Raven, embracing the wild side. 10 famous rock stars.. 10 cities... Hot! I wanted to be honest though, maybe I just had too much of an expectation of the book that in the end made me disappointed with what I read. As I said, I was loving the book, Half way though I lost connection over it. Maybe because I was looking forward to more of Raven's conquests, her fun ways, the adventures that comes along with it. Don't get me wrong, when Lucky was introduced I was giddy. Hell this man is any woman's wet dream. In as much as I wanna say I am afraid the story will divert to them instead of the conquests I was so looking forward, I did not mind. In fact, I embraced it because I love the twist the author wanted to portray. But then, it turned out so disappointing in my part because at some point I so wanted to smack some sense over Raven and then wanted some more manly characteristic over Lucky. And in the end I was looking for more.That, and even the sex scenes going on, not just over Lucky but the rest of the other rock stars. It was hot, but not descriptive and definitely lacks connection that I was reading it again just to make sure I read it right. 


Overall, it was good. Maybe I just really had high hopes over the story that in the end I feel like I was down because I expected too much based on the blurb and what it portrays to deliver. Michelle's writing is easy to connect with that's why to be honest I was so rooting for the book. I love her idea of this story but I hated the fact that almost half way done I lost connection to it. However though, I will still recommend it for those who love Michelle Mankin's writing style and her stories. It may not be what I expect it to be, but I cannot deny the fact that I did enjoy my journey with Raven, her conquests and her finally coming home.



Michelle Mankin certainly knows how to get your attention! Not only did the title of this book catch my eye, but the blurb is amazing! Once I read it, I knew that I had to get my hands on the book as soon as humanly possible. I was so excited that I got my blog sister and pervy partner in crime, Anne, to read it with me. Since she became just as enthusiastic about it as I was, the anticipation for this book got real! Read the blurb for yourself and see what had us freaking out...

Do you guys see what I mean? After I read that, I think I actually yelled, “SOLD!” out loud and clicked the link!

Sometimes anticipation for a book can be good and sometimes it can be bad. In this case, it was the latter. I thought I was getting a fun book filled with scorching sex scenes and female empowerment. Unfortunately, that is not what happened. While the heroine, Raven, does set out to sleep with rock stars of her choosing in 10 cities, most of her encounters aren’t what you think they will be. Before her first encounter, she meets a guy that she really likes named Lucky. She begins to have feelings for him before she even gets to guy number 2. After that, her heart isn’t really in it. She doesn’t enjoy what she is doing at all, and so I didn’t either. It also felt the opposite of empowering…not that I actually believed screwing a bunch of rock stars would accomplish that in the first place. Like I said, I was just looking for a hot, entertaining read, and this just didn’t fit the bill.

I don’t want this review to sound completely negative. The writing style made the story easy to get into which I Ioved, and the hero is sexy as hell, sweet, and just all around swoonworthy. If I went into this book blind, I think I would have enjoyed it more. I loathe misleading blurbs, and this is why. It seriously affected my overall enjoyment of the book. I will still definitely give some of the author’s other work a try, but I will wait until it comes out and read the reviews first so I know what I’m signing up for.
