Review: Rock, Rattle & Roll by Taryn Elliott and Cari Quinn

Rating: ★★★★★ stars
Date published: July 1st, 2014
Publisher: Rainbow Rage Publishing
Synopsis: Loving in fast forward...

Love on the fast track has been the definition of Harper and Deacon McCoy's relationship. In between studio sessions with Deacon's band, Oblivion, and building a new clientele for Harper's catering business, the newlyweds haven't had time to sleep let alone have a honeymoon.

Deacon convinces Harper that they need a week alone together before her business as well as a new album and tour swallows them whole. Since Texas has always held special meaning for them, they head to Galveston to recharge and remember what it's like to just be a couple.
A beachfront cottage, hours of alone time, and plenty of skin on skin action is just what the rock star ordered. Until the future once again comes much quicker than they expected, threatening to crumble not only their perfect honeymoon but also their brand new marriage.

What I Thought:

I fell in love with Deacon and Harper in Rocked and most of the band as well.  I was ecstatic when I first found out this novella would be released shortly after I finished the book.  I hadn't been ready to leave Oblivion behind yet, and Twisted, Jazz and Gray's book wouldn't be released until October 2014.  

This novella picks up slightly after the end of Rocked.  I was so happy to see Harper and Deacon doing well.  I was a little surprised and delighted at how hot and heavy the two were on their honeymoon.  I was a little concerned that's all I was going to read for over a hundred pages, but I shouldn't have been.  Taryn and Cari definitely brought their story telling flare to Rock, Rattle & Roll.

When I finally found out what was going on, I was rocked (no pun intended).  I love the sensitivity with which both Harper and Deacon treated the new hurdle they were facing.  Things could've turned out differently and broken both of them apart, but I'm so glad they didn't.  I think one of my favorite scenes/dialogues is between Jazz and Harper.  Jazz gave Harper some really solid and sound advice we all need to remember at times.  

At the end of the novella there was an excerpt of Twisted, I loved and sort of wished wasn't included.  It wasn't that it was bad, but just that I really wanted to read the rest of Twisted and I wasn't able to.  I will be keeping my fingers crossed the book will be available in October.  If you haven't checked out this series, you should, but start with the prequel novella Seduced, you won't regret it!
