Barbara Stewart – The Rock and Roll Trilogy Reading Order

in Reading Order Guide:

Another rock star series alert, and I know right off the bat I’ve been missing out ’cause the first in this series is one of the most often recommended books, to come my way. I hear it is heart-wrenching and an extreme tear-jerker. I’m nervous (and titillated!!)

The heartfelt discussions and emotions this book started amongst our crew… wow. What he heck am I doing sitting here typing?? Obviously I need to be reading —> THIS!!! (side note: actually I know why I haven’t started. I’m scared… but I MUST!!! Especially now that the third book has been released. I can do this. I know I can!)

Just look at these recommendations:

Amy: I truly think it is the most emotional and beautiful book I have ever read.  I have been a basket case for days now and cannot get this book out of my head and heart.  It is a love story, but the way it is written you connect to the story as if it is an autobiography about someone you know and love.  It is a story that will stay will you forever and I HIGHLY recommend that you check it out and give it a shot.

Kari: Hi Maryse! Have you read Rock and Roll Never Forgets? It’s amazing. So moving! Couldn’t put it down.

Renee: I don’t remember how I stumbled on this one but it was such a gut wrenching and beautiful romance!

Jenn: I purchased Rock and Roll Never Forgets based on your March 1st E-Bargain Blog Post. I do not know if you have read it yet so I will not give anything away; but I must tell you it was so emotional to the point I am literally exhausted and my heart hurts. Not your typical rock star book but I LOVED IT I cried from ***% to the end…No ugly cry- They were tears that just slid down my cheeks not making a sound-so beautifully written.

Angela: Just finished Rock and Roll Never Forgets. It is a heartbreaking, bitter-sweet love story. I have not cried this much reading a book since ***. Here’s the thing, I like angst, no, I love it but books like this affect me so much. It will stay with me for a long time.

Jennifer: Just got done reading Rock & Roll Never Forgets……all I can say is wow!!!! You need to get this book & a box of Kleenex soon!!!! Maryse this book is so up your alley…Rockstar book & ALOT of emotions. I don’t think I have felt that emotional with a book. (If I have it’s been awhile)

Michelle: Rock and Roll Never Forgets… love this trilogy, at least the two I’ve read….waiting for the last book

Amy: You must read Rock and Roll Never Forgets ASAP!!!  The third book in the series Feel Like Makin Love was just released and I just KNOW you would love it.  This is truly a fantastic series.  I strongly recommend reading it.  You wont regret it. ;)

And I could go on and on posting recommendations (they just get more and more intense).

About book #1:

Beth Morgan is a young woman who’s just been given the ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to meet her favorite band, Traveler. That meeting leads to a chance encounter with her idol, the band’s lead singer, Andy Stevens.

What follows is a love story. A journey through the peaks, valleys and trials of a relationship lived in the public eye; the miles they traveled together through his career in the music business, and her struggles to stay obscure in a world she never really settled into comfortably. In the end it’s all about love, fate, and what the heart can’t hold back.

I’ll be interested to know what you think of this series. I started reading the first one tonight, based on your post and what other people were saying about the books, but I just couldn’t get into the first one. The writing style was too full of narrative for me and not enough dialogue. That, and there wasn’t a single thing that drew me to either character, and the whole meeting of the two just seemed so… contrived. Maybe I should have given it a bit longer, but 96 pages seemed like I’d already gone too far.

Celeste, I actually paused at 20-something percent yesterday… (I don’t know where I am page-wise) but exactly the same way I felt. I know I must be missing out, so I’m going to give it another go soon. Maybe we just need to get passed the intro-hump? But I felt like things were moving along, happening fast but I wasn’t feeling a thing (or knowing any of them) because it had that being “skimmed over” feel in the narration.

I suspect she’s trying to move us to a certain part where the story “really starts”?

I’m hoping that’s what it is, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to let you be the one to explore that! With so many good books out there to read, it’s hard to be patient.

In other news, Bullet grabbed me and wouldn’t let go! I just finished it, and even though I was SO VERY frustrated at times with nearly everything going on in the book, I was compelled to read it and see where they all ended up. I didn’t absolutely love it, but it was a fun (if not frustrating) read.

Oh My God Maryse, You are killing me. I Started this book Sunday night and from the sample frm amazon i was hooked. Such a beautiful emotional romance story then at approx 70% of the book. The writing style is captivating. The story is really good and theres something happening all the time. I have never cried so much overa stupid book and as for reading the sequel. I just dont think i can put myself through it. Andy was just gorgeous and i cant even imagine what her husband went through. This is a definate 5 stars for me. Every single book you recommend i love!!

Hi Maryse, Have to say that Tate from Sweet Dreams was my first of Kristen Ashley’s books so will always be a favorite, but I have to say Tack from Motorcycle man was almost a tie. I like the charaters because they have already lived a little, not 25-30 year olds, but a little older. I’ve read most of her books, Rock Chicks, Mountain Man, etc. When any of her new books come out they go to the top of my TBR list. Thanks for offering this chance to win her new release.
