She goes over to ask him what he was doing lurking outside the children's ward. Nathan was attempting to find a way out of the hospital other than the front door, when a girl stopped him. She demanded to know what he was doing outside of the children ward. He tried to leave but the girl grabbed his jacket and wouldn't let go. So he asked her if she was looking for an autograph? Becca just looked at him questioning, an autograph? Then she asks him, why he was lurking in the around the children ward? He looks at her and then responds, You really don't know who I am, do you?

    I officially have a new book boyfriend and his name is Nathan Walker. I'm pretty sure Hard Rock Kiss was my first rock star romance, and it didn't disappoint. While it's technically the third book in the Cherry Lips series (Hard Rock Promise (newsletter freebie) and Hard Rock Crush are the first two), it can definitely be read as a standalone - I didn't feel like I was missing anything because the characters from the previous two books were introduced and a bit of their backstory was given in a n I officially have a new book boyfriend and his name is Nathan Walker.

(Side note: I'll definitely be going back and reading the other two now!) I really felt for both Nathan and Becca. I honestly didn't know what to expect when I went in; from what I've heard about rock star books in general, I guess I thought it would be a lot of rock shows and sex? Haha. But the characters had so much depth, and there was so much emotion. I was rooting for Nathan and Becca individually and as a couple. Their journey was a pleasure to watch, and I finished reading this book with a big smile on my face. *I received an ARC of Hard Rock Kiss. All opinions are my own.

    Through the ringer and back. That's how much Hard Rock Kiss impacted me. A story that drags your emotions from laughter to sadness, from sympathy to relief- just a constant page turning story filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. This story follows Nathan, the rock star god guitarist of Cherry lips and Becca, a hospital volunteer and pet shop employee. They meet when she catches him sneaking around the hospital trying to find an exit to avoid running into fans. Not knowing initially who he is Through the ringer and back. That's how much Hard Rock Kiss impacted me. A story that drags your emotions from laughter to sadness, from sympathy to relief- just a constant page turning story filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. This story follows Nathan, the rock star god guitarist of Cherry lips and Becca, a hospital volunteer and pet shop employee. They meet when she catches him sneaking around the hospital trying to find an exit to avoid running into fans. Not knowing initially who he is or why he's there, she ends up helping him make his getaway safely. He rewards her with tickets to a Cherry Lips concert. The two of them click, and Nathan decides to help Becca fulfill all her childhood dreams (her bucket list). We get some hysterical cameos by beloved Darkest Day characters, wild chandelier swinging, carnivals, drinking games, hot sex, and of course - zorbing (ha ha..look it up). As the story develops, we get sucked into some seriously deep issues that both characters have to deal with but are hiding from each other in a desperate attempt to keep their relationship "normal". (sorry, no spoilers included) To spare Nathan the heartbreak her secret could bring, Becca lies to Nathan and breaks up with him. We see them both go through some hard moments before they are finally forced to admit that they are stronger together than they are apart. While this book tackles some serious issues, Athena Wright has such a talent with words-she keep things upbeat and teases you with glimpses of possible HEA's. You really get invested in Becca and Nathan's journey. Another successful book (#2) in the Hard Rock, Cherry Lips series! This was one of my favorite ARC books to read and honestly review.

    Not what I was expecting at all. It was so much better. I immediately fell in love with Nathan and I wasn’t even sure why. He just seemed like a really nice guy. Of course by the title you can tell he’s a rock star and gorgeous. Sure he’s a little arrogant but he has a much deeper side to him. It shows through more and more as the story develops. He’s searching for something that he doesn’t even know he’s looking for. Enter Becca, who is sweet from the very beginning but very much her own person Not what I was expecting at all.

Enter Becca, who is sweet from the very beginning but very much her own person and not a pushover. She is definitely not your typical rockstar groupie. Becca decides she’s going to live life on her own terms even if it’’s only for one night. From this night the story really kicks into high gear. It takes you on a sweet sometimes rocky journey. Just like it is in real life. Both have secrets that they’re keeping from each other. Both are starting to depend on each other more than they originally planned. We get to become reunited with others from the Hard Rock series. Trust me though, if you haven’t read the other books this story totally stands on it’s own. But it was fun getting to be treated to them again. This is a book that brings all the feels and a little bit more. You’ll smile, swoon, tear up, heat up, and hope. I don’t do spoilers. I don’t think it’s fair to the author. You should really buy the book or read the blurb. You won’t be sorry. This was a really fast read. I read it in one sitting. I would love to see these two again. Hopefully, they’ll be another book in this series. To the author I say, thank you for another good book!

    I fell in love with this book and with Nathan. Even though he was a rock star he had this sweetness about him that I just loved. I think he might be my new book boyfriend. I loved how Nathan and Becca first meet. I thought that there was a connection between them from that meeting. I found their story to be very deep, sweet, romantic and even emotional. I loved this book. To see how the relationship developed between them was amazing. I really loved them as a couple and as friends. This book too I fell in love with this book and with Nathan.

Yes, Nathan is the stereotypical famous, womanizing, arrogant rockstar who falls for a regular girl, but he also has great depth to him. He is dedicated and very caring towards those he loves. Becca is a strong, unique character. I don’t want to give anything away, but she has a secret that she keeps from Nathan in the beginning. This secret has affected and still affects her whole family and she worries that it will be too much for Nathan. The book moves at a good place and Becca and Nathan have great chemistry together. I also enjoyed seeing some of the characters from the pervious Cherry Lips books and from her Darkest Days series. This book is told entirely from Becca’s POV which I think was appropriate for the storyline, but I do wish that there were a couple chapters told from Nathan’s POV. Hard Rock Kiss is book 2 in Athena Wright’s Cherry Lips rockstar series. It can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading the novella Hard Rock Promise (currently free if you sign up for the author’s newsletter) and Hard Rock Heart. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I always enjoy Athena Wright’s stories. They are romance, but they also have other important topics woven into the story. This one is no different. Nathen is hiding from his fans in the hospital after visiting his mom. Becca first takes him as a creeper, but soon realizes that he’s not. Becca spends a lot of time volunteering at the hospital working with kids and those who need visitors. Nathan is a hunky, rock star who Becca find herself falling for.

    Sweet read Loved Hard Rock Kiss! Becca and Nathan are my favorite Cheery Lips couple! I loved the sweet build of their relationship and that Becca brought out a whole other side of Nathan than the playboy rocker. There is so much emotion in this book with what Becca and Nathan have and are going through. I am really loving this series!

    Both Nathan and Becca are guarding secrets that they’re sure will destroy their happiness if found out. They have an instantaneous connection and tons of chemistry but fear holds them back. I was impressed that Becca was brave enough to open up and to be honest about herself. Nathan takes a bit longer to share it all. I liked how loving and gentle he was with Becca. He has a few immature moments but takes steps to fix things and sincerely apologizes.

    Book two in the Cherry Lips series. Can be read and enjoyed as stand-alone with each book about a different member of the band. This is not about sex, drugs, and rock and roll but about the family that makes up the band. Nathan is the guitarist for Cherry Lips and what an amazing man he is. With boy next door good looks and a care-giving personality he had me swooning! Becca lives in her parent’s basement and fills her life with working at a pet store and volunteering at the hospital.

    Becca Miller dropped off the huge stack of magazines to Helen’s room in the hospital so she would have something interesting to read. Then she went back to the children’s ward where she volunteered once a week. But as she was leaving, she saw a furtive man looking quickly from side to side, slouched and creeping down the hallway. She grabbed him by the coat and he took off his baseball cap, asking if she was trying to get his autograph! He was handsome, with sandy blond hair and blue eyes. He sa Becca Miller dropped off the huge stack of magazines to Helen’s room in the hospital so she would have something interesting to read. Then she went back to the children’s ward where she volunteered once a week. But as she was leaving, she saw a furtive man looking quickly from side to side, slouched and creeping down the hallway. She grabbed him by the coat and he took off his baseball cap, asking if she was trying to get his autograph! He was handsome, with sandy blond hair and blue eyes. He said he was trying to find an exit and was lost. He finally told her that a crowd would mob him outside since someone posted that he was spotted at the hospital; he needed a side entrance to sneak out of. She believed him and directed him to a door to avoid the crowd. In return – still not telling her exactly who he was – he gave her a note to come in the side door at his invitation and he would have her on the allowed “list”. Looking at the paper he gave her, she realized he was Nathan Walker, guitarist of the hugely popular band, Cherry Lips. He was a rock star god! Becca was admitted in the side door and watched the crazy chaotic activity as everyone prepared for the concert. Nathan walked up to her and she did a double-take at his changed appearance. He even had eyeliner on! He told her to stick around after the concert, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Then he invited her to a club. Although not in her comfort zone, she decided to go anyway. As they danced, they both agreed to leave the club and spend personal time together. Since Becca lives at home, they went to Nathan’s home and made love. Probably for the first time ever, Nathan was shocked as Becca was the one to dress and go home rather than stay for breakfast. Becca began to see that Nathan was actually lonely. He tried to keep the painful things to himself, just as Becca didn’t reveal her secrets to him. But when they are together, the chemistry is explosive and the gentle banter back and forth shows how much they are starting to feel for each other. They bring out the best in each other and give each other balance. He challenges her to reach out and experience more. When will they be able to tell each other the important things affecting their lives? Will they break apart to avoid that intensity? Will she force him away rather than restrict his life as she had her parents’ lives? Or will they find their strength together to face anything that comes their way? This is a wonderful book, beautifully told from the heart and with touches of humor gently inserted to take any rough edges away. It invests the reader deeply into the characters’ lives and truly makes us care. It is an emotional rollercoaster, but even the rough parts are good because there is strength when people pull together in love and support. Great story line and incredible characters. This book is definitely worth reading. It’s an experience you would not want to miss.

Becca is a part-time pet store employee who volunteers at the hospital. Nathan is a rock star. She has never experienced life. He has played on the wild side for years. At first glance, they have nothing in common except for the fact that neither allows themselves a chance at love. Becca refuses to be a burden to anyone, Nathan's reasons aren't nearly as pure. But this chance encounter, Becca's innocence jump out at Nathan and he invites her to a concert. Becca decides to act impulsively for once and the two find themselves together at the end of the evening. It may start out as a one night stand but their connection is more. Their loneliness speaks to the other and their trust grows quickly. It appears their feelings are real and growing but... Can Nathan leave his playboy ways behind him or will he hurt Becca? Or will Becca end things first? She's familiar with risks but she's not willing to risk hurting Nathan. Nathan was the best part of this story. He was wonderful despite his past as a manwhore. His thoughtfulness, his protectiveness, and his naughtiness were adorable. His concern over his mom, the pain felt for his first band, and the way he missed his best friend endeared him to me. He was 90% ego with 10% vulnerability thrown in to make him perfect. I would have enjoyed this story, even more, had it been dual POV. Becca's push-pull/hot-cold behavior would have sent most men running. I would have liked to know what was going through his mind when she pushed him away repeatedly and when he finally got the full story. I liked Becca and felt for her with her condition and with her parents. I would have liked to feel more 'life' from her, more ambition, more sass. Maybe it's in her future.

    Huh. This was so different from what I expected and what I am used to from Athena Wright’s sexy, swoony rock star romances. Becca and Nathan’s story evokes all the feels – the last few chapters even had me a bit teary-eyed, it’s that tragically beautiful. Still, while it might deal with a much more serious topic, it has sexy and funny times too, and is full of so much hope and love, I start swooning even thinking about it. Yeah, Nathan, guitarist for Cherry Lips, is a special man – if you put all Huh. This was so different from what I expected and what I am used to from Athena Wright’s sexy, swoony rock star romances.

Yeah, Nathan, guitarist for Cherry Lips, is a special man – if you put all rock star stereotypical traits like arrogance and his womanizing ways aside, because deep down, he is thoughtful, caring, loyal – and lonely. But that’s only really discovered when Becca enters his life – accusing him of being a creeper, lol. Which is as spoiler-y as I will get. Becca had a rough yet incredibly sheltered childhood; never allowed to do the things other kids her age were doing, always closely watched by her parents, who even now as an adult don’t want her to leave home for too long. Still, Becca is very much her own person, fought for her independence tooth and nail, now having a part-time job in a pet shop and volunteering in a hospital – where she meets Nathan. She is not at all like the other girls he was with, however brief, before, and she most definitely is no rock star groupie… Their journey is sweet, heartfelt as much as it is rocky. Without even knowing, they complement one another just perfectly in more ways than they would have ever imagined. This is book two in Athena Wright’s Cherry Lips series and I cannot wait for the next band member to get their story!

Nathan loves the feeling of adrenaline and living life to its fullest. Becca is a volunteer at a hospital and a pet shop employee. Becca has lead a very sheltered life while dealing with serious issues of her own and wants to start living life to its fullest without having her parents watching every move she makes. Becca and Nathan are attracted to each other and start to confide in each other as they spend more time together. Will Becca confide in Nathan her biggest secret of all or walk away? Can Nathan confide in his friends what is really going on in his life? Will the members of Cherry Lips stand behind Nathan or treat him like his old band did? Can Nathan and Becca learn they are stronger together than apart? I love the chemistry and banter between Nathan and Becca. The members of Cherry Lips and their significant others provide laughs and emotional support for Nathan and Becca. I absolutely loved Hard Rock Kiss by Athena Wright. Hard Rock Kiss will take the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride from the beginning to the end. HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting Hard Rock Kiss by Athena Wright. Athena Wright has become one of my must read authors. Never disappointed. I received an ARC of this book, and I am leaving my honest review.

    Hard Rock Kiss is the second book dealing with the band Cherry Lips. It tells the story of Nathan and Becca. It’s told only through Becca’s POV. It was an easy read. It’s a pretty easy going story overall. Nathan is a member of Cherry Lips. Through out the book we see interactions between some of the other members but most of the time when we do see Nathan it’s because he’s with Becca. I would have loved to see things from his POV as well just to be able to gain better insights into his character Hard Rock Kiss is the second book dealing with the band Cherry Lips.

I would have loved to see things from his POV as well just to be able to gain better insights into his character and what drives him. He’s pretty open with Becca but it’s still one sided. Becca is a volunteer at the local hospital and she also works for a pet store. She’s dealing with some worrisome issues just like Nathan in some ways. Since the book is told from her perspective only, we obviously see everything that goes on with her. While she was a good character, there were times I wanted a break from her. Overall, it was a good story. That’s why I’m giving it four stars. I liked the theme behind it as well as the storyline itself. I just would have really liked to get Nathan’s side of the story as well. I couldn’t “fall” for both of these characters as much as I wanted to because I felt like I was only getting half of the story. It made it hard for me to get as engrossed in this book as I wanted. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Wow! What an emotion packed journey we take with Nathan and Becca! A chance meeting has these two seeing something in each other that makes them want more, want something different. They hit it off right away, and find themselves confiding in each other, telling things even those closest to them have no idea is weighing them down. I loved Nathan immediately - handsome, a little cocky, talented rock star with a strong, quiet, intelligent, sensitive side hidden from view. But for some reason, he o Wow!

I loved Nathan immediately - handsome, a little cocky, talented rock star with a strong, quiet, intelligent, sensitive side hidden from view. But for some reason, he opens up to Becca. Would have liked to get inside his head a little to see what his side was like. Becca, on the other hand...ooo that girl frustrates me! She keeps saying that she hates people coddling her, making decisions for her, but then she does similar to Nathan. What she decides she must do for his own good, is like a slap in the face to him and all that he has done for her. She takes away his right to decide what path he would choose. If she wants trust, then she must give it also. I wanted to knock some sense into the girl! (And give Nathan a shoulder to cry on!) That being said, this story at my heart strings, made me laugh, cry, growl, and swoon. For me, Nathan stole the show! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review

This can definitely be read as a stand alone book however I was grateful for reading the previous books in the series to understand who Ms Wright was talking about and how they fit into the Hark Rock Romance series.

He invites her to a show as a thanks for getting him out a side door away from prying fans.

    Becca was volunteering at the hospital in the children’s ward spending time with sick kids she really loved them, when she was about to leave the ward she see’s a man sneaking around. He had a cap over his face and she didn’t like that he was sneaking in the kids ward so she went over to him and grabbed him by his shirt and asked him why he was sneaking around, he said that he had been recognised and that he has fans out the front that he needs to get away from and if there’s an exit he can esca Becca was volunteering at the hospital in the children’s ward spending time with sick kids she really loved them, when she was about to leave the ward she see’s a man sneaking around.

Becca asked him if he was a movie star he said that she was close but she couldn’t guess, he said that his name is Nathan and he gave her a long piece of paper it was a concert ticket to see the band Cherry Lips. Becca realised that he is the rock god guitarist Nathan Walker and she was totally in shock. That’s all I’m going to give you guys but know there is so much more to this story to keep you entertained and turning the pages, I loved this story and the hot intense chemistry that Becca and Nathan had. An absolutely fantastic story a 5 plus +++++ ⭐️ read and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

When he meets Becca and finds out she has not done so many things he starts out to fulfill her life with all she can handle. I loved the zborging but do not think I will try it. But when she learns why he and his last band split she thinks she needs to let him go. But what they don't see is they are stronger together. Like all her books they all have a message. I love that about her books. Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do; they value your opinions too.

    Nathan Walker. He's a guitarist for the rising band Cherry Lips. Becca's character was a perfect match to Nathan's wild personality. But what was really amazing about them was how easily they could confide in each other after having just met. Like all of Athena's other rockstar romance novels, Hard Rock Kiss has a depth that takes you into the story and allows you to feel as though you are experiencing every emotion along with the characters.

But Hard Rock Kiss is definitely a bit different. It has a lot of great laughs that counter all the deep heartfelt almost-agony. Because Becca's and Nathan's hardships hit you in the gut. I'm a good way. I never thought there would be a new musician to compete with Ian (Hard Rock Fling) and Ren (Hard Rock Touch) from Athena Wright's other rockstar romance novels. But here is Nathan shoving his way into my top 3 I had the honored privilege of reading an ARC, which I requested at no expense to the author. This is my honest review.

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is another amazing must read book from Athena Wright. Its a bit different than the other books she has written like it but that did not detract from the awesomeness that is this book.

I would recommend this book along with all of her other books to anyone who enjoys getting lost in a world that will lead you on an emotional rollercoaster and still have you begging for more when its over. This book is one of my new favorites. I cant wait to see what she does next but for now I seriously recommend that you hit the one click button because you don't want to miss out on this book.
