    I have been recommended Jessica Prince's books for quite some time now, so I finally jumped in and I am so happy I did. In all honesty, this is the kind of book I would recommend in between heavy emotional reads. Just the kind that I could sink into because it was well written while being a quick and easy read. I didn't have to think too hard while reading it because Jessica spelled it out for us and laid the groundwork pretty well. This book definitely put this series on my watch list because after reading Garrett's story, I need the rest of the band members stories too!!

    My absolute favorite part was Garrett and Gwen's first meeting. I smiled immediately once I read that part and it really set the tone for the book for me. It was nice and didn't feel forced in the slightest, and I totally cheesy-grinned how it all began. Super cheesy grin. However, I must say that the actual reason behind them living together felt a little forced for me, but I figured with that kind of money and fame at your disposal, you kinda get used to setting things up and making sure they go your way. So I went with it....why not? It allowed for the setup of their story, but also allowed for the reality of their feelings to grow and showcase the fear behind letting their walls down. It was a volatile and exasperating love at times, all because of insecurities and need, but continually muddled because of fear and past actions.

    was delicious. He wasn't overtly swoony, and he had some definite faults, but I think that made him all the more relatable. There was a depth to him that we weren't privy to by just looking in from the outside. Once you got to know him, by being on the inside, seeing his actions, he was a very emotionally charged man with many layers. He was, to me, a typical super sexy guy with ego related actions as well as some questionable actions to boot. I mean, c'mon. He was a drummer in a popular band, so he had everything thrown at him, and after living that lifestyle, he got used to the perks and the ability to just toss things away...including people, unfortunately. But, the redeeming side of him made me sigh. He worked SO hard, putting his heart on the line, to make Gwen understand that she was the one for him. He realized the err of his ways, and clearly didn't want to let her go without a fight. I will say this; for as spoiled as his life was, he was quite grounded and usually made rational decisions in the relationship field. I was actually shocked at how level-headed his decisions were. You could tell he really wanted their relationship to work. I really liked Garrett.

    was a strong woman. At times I felt she was extremely stubborn.....hahaha!! Who am I kidding?! She was stubborn the ENTIRE. TIME. But honestly, that is what I liked about her. Yes, I may have wanted to shake her a few times, but I could completely understand why she was so hesitant with everything going on. One admirable thing I loved seeing was that she fostered a relationship between Garrett and Liddy. I loved seeing that. Gwen had some normal single parent insecurities, she was even wishy-washy at times, but I could empathize with her. She naturally fought her feelings with a very sturdy wall that Garrett was trying to get past. It was fun to see the reality behind the wide range of emotions. I loved the fact that they were in their own little bubble trying to repair their tattered relationship they had. It was a neat thing to read, and Jessica spelled it out for us while allowing us to hurt, to laugh, and to fall in love right along with them.

    and was the perfect start to a new series -- so much so that I will be following Jessica around like a lost puppy so that I can get the rest of the stories. I feel completely invested in this band now and can't wait for more!! It wasn't overly emotional, it certainly wasn't angsty at all, and the drama was actually understandable but wasn't carried on forrreeeeverrrr -- thank gosh. This one was a growing and learning experience and I loved experiencing it with them. Thank you to Amy at Garden of REden for the recommendation. I'm excited for more!

    It stars off with a hot as fuck encounter between the two main characters and from there all hell breaks loose. I will say that at first I wanted to punch, maim, dismember the hero in this book Garrett.

    He behaviour just completely worked me up and I was ready to stage an all out revolt.

    As the story continues I found myself so wrapped up in this intense enemies to loves story. I didn't know at times which direction I wanted it to go, ok well of course I wanted an HEA but man oh man at times I was ready to say FUCK THAT because well DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA.

    Throw in some "Villains" that also end up on my hit list and I was ready to toss my kindle at the wall out of frustration at certain points. When you are ready to start throwing physical things you know you have a good book on your hands.

    So many ups and downs and I clung to everyone of them, my emotions completely wrapped up in this story.

    The best part of this is that this is book 1 in a series that I can tell without a shadow of a doubt I am going to love. I will one click the rest of these books no hesitation because the characters in this book and not just the two main characters grabbed my attention and I am not about to let go anytime soon.

    Jessica Prince continues to be a go to author for me for this very reason.

    After reading Corrupt for the second time, I think I'm ready to write my review. So here it goes.

    I'm always game for a good rock star story and was a little enamored with this one. Reading an author you've never read before and abso-fucking-lutely falling in love with her book, is always exciting.

    I'm always game for a good rock star story and was a little enamored with this one. Reading an author you've never read before and abso-fucking-lutely falling in love with her book, is always exciting.

    I wasn't sure I was going to like Garrett at first because lemme tell you, he was an egotistical dick but then...

    He went from Douchy Von Dickhead to book boyfriend material. I can't say when or where just that it didn't take long for me to melt into a puddle and gush my heart out for him.

    Then we have Gwen. Her life has been on a downward spiral for the past few years, and the one night she decided to open up and gave herself a chance to live, she was left down. But she never gave up, she took shitty situations and owned them.

    But not everything was hearts and unicorns with these two. At times, I wanted to kill them both. I adored them, but they weren't perfect. Selfishness and Stubbornness were their middle names, and it was a fucking nightmare. I get it. Being left behind like you were nothing hurts. Doing the leaving hurts. So their struggle to leave the past behind, you guess right... fucking hurts.

    Gwen & Garret may be the main characters in

    , but the side characters, which I seriously loved, created a chemistry that makes reading this book addicting. So to know there will be more of them left me with a huge smile on my face.

    Once I started reading this book, I couldn't stop myself from clicking those page until I finished it.

    I'm a sucker for second-chance romances, and Jessica Prince had me eating out of her hand.

    This book had me full on laughing, swooning and wanting to slap a few people in equal measure. Prince knew how to keep me on the edge of my seat. It took me a little time to find Jessica Prince, but now that I have, I'm not letting her go.

    is a sexy little sucker second chance romance, filled with sweet and funny moments that melted my heart and panties, as well as just enough angst to keep me on my toes.

    I'm kinda tired now and my eyes hurt from all the times they either bugged out of their sockets or were rolling because Garrett & Gwen took me on one hell of an angsty roller coaster ride. Because lemme tell you, the sweet and smexy totally went toe to toe with the angsty emotional drama in this baby. I'm not mad at ‘em because I devoured every word of their journey and was totally invested in them. But they definitely went big.

    Here's the thing with Garrett

    I'm kinda tired now and my eyes hurt from all the times they either bugged out of their sockets or were rolling because Garrett & Gwen took me on one hell of an angsty roller coaster ride. Because lemme tell you, the sweet and smexy totally went toe to toe with the angsty emotional drama in this baby. I'm not mad at ‘em because I devoured every word of their journey and was totally invested in them. But they definitely went big.

    Here's the thing with Garrett and Gwen. I loved both of them and yet they both drove me batshit crazy. Garrett is, at his very core, a good man, unfortunately his rock god status and the perks that go with it tend to be his main priority in life. But once you take that away you find his picture may be found under Neanderthal in the dictionary as an example, because the man is alpha AF, but who also has a huge heart once he lets it out to play. When we meet Gwen her life was on something of a downward spiral, but with the help of a friend she was fighting it with all she had. I loved her sass and how she didn’t allow people to walk all over her, but the walls she constructed around her also tended to make her blind to anything other than the crazy running around in her head.

    If you’re a fan of angst then you are going to love this one because holy clusterfuck. What Garrett and Gwen put each other through was insane. Most of the time I tend to side with one character over another, but in this case I can honestly say it was a 50/50 split over whose team I was on and there were times where I wasn’t having it from either one of them. And the crazy thing is, I was okay with it all because their crazy was crack. So much crap has happened between them and yet they barely know each other, so what kept me turning the pages was to see when they both finally had a lightbulb moment and realized the amazing that was right in front of them, also the smexy was SMEXY. Do they finally get there, yes, but it took the whole damn village to do it. Am I happy with the outcome? Yes. Very.

    Corrupt definitely did me in. I enjoyed every word, but it definitely took something out of me. As a first in a new series, I loved the setup and never felt like any information dumping was going on. The characters are well written, Corrie and Ian are my favs of the secondary characters, but I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know the rest of the band, especially after those little teases dropped throughout the book. So, if you like a little angsty crazyness in your romances this one is definitely a must read for you!

    Toe-curling sexy--my new favorite Jessica Prince novel!

    Garrett is one terrific, sexy alpha drummer, and initially Gwen is a sad, demure transplant to Seattle. Boy, that changes fast! (The Gwen part, NOT the Garrett part.)

    I didn't expect the forces that drove them apart in the beginning, so I won't spoil it. Let's just say, I wasn't sure how they'd overcome THAT...

    It's great fun when they do start getting back together, though. Garrett and Gwen are explosively sexy. Prepare for panty changes!

    So if you're looking for a new second-chance rocker romance to devour, this is it. Corrupt is deliciously sexy, feisty, and passionate, and it will keep you clicking those pages until too early in the morning...

    Thanks for the bloodshot eyes, Jessica!

    Seriously, though, don't miss this one!!!

    I'm putting this on hold just ruminate things for awhile and think about whether I should continue reading because I'm so annoyed as I'm writing this. Reasons below and spoilers of course.

    Uzun zamandır rock star'lı kitap okumuyordum. Eğlencelidir diye başladım ama beni pek tatmin etmedi. Ve çokça Kylie Scott'un Stage Dive serisi kokusu aldım. Ama böyle kötü bir kopya kokusu.

    Uzun zamandır rock star'lı kitap okumuyordum. Eğlencelidir diye başladım ama beni pek tatmin etmedi. Ve çokça Kylie Scott'un Stage Dive serisi kokusu aldım. Ama böyle kötü bir kopya kokusu.

    Gwen bir arkadaşının ısrarı sonucu bir rock grubunun partisine katılıyor ve orada grubun bateristi Garrett ile tanışıyor. Aralarında özel bir şey olduğunu düşünüyor ama tabii sabah sepetleniveriyor. Garrett bu işi kendisi de yapmıyor kaltak asistanı Kimber'a yaptırıyor. Ve bir süre sonra Gwen hamile olduğunu fark ediyor ve Garrett'a aber veriyor. Garrett ise duyunca kadının üstüne avukatlarını yolluyor. Böyle böyle birbirlerinden nefret ede ede 3 yıl geçiriyorlar.

    Şimdiiii, Gwen diyor ki bu adam çocuğuma iyi babalık yapıyor. Garrett da ben iyi bir babayım diyor ama yok yani öyle bir şey. Herif geziyor geziyor, istediğiyle düşüp kalkıyor ve tura ara verince de "Ben çocuğumu daha çok görmek istiyorum" diyor. 3 sene sonra ilk kez kadının yaşadığı eve gidiyor "Bak bu ev çok kötü, gel benim evde yaşa hem de ben çocuğumu görmüş olurum" diyor. Ama hiç konuşmuyorlar bunlar, sevgili değiller haliyle bir diğerinin sevgilisi olması veya evlenmesi halinde ne olacak falan diye. Öyle dan diye, durduk yere kız kalkıp adamın evine taşınıyor. Arada aşk maşk yok yani. Sonra adam da "oh elimin altında bir kadın var bari faydasını göreyim" moduyla kızın peşinden koşuyor. Ayrılıp barışıyorlar sürekli. Hiç gerçek bir konuşma, hiç gerçek bir aşk göremedim ben. Kaldı ki grup üyeleri arasında da bir bağ, bir sıcaklık yoktu bence.

    Ancak şu da var ki kadının gel-gitleri, fevriliği güzel yansıtılmıştı. Sırf o yüzden 2!

    Garrett and Gwen meet at a party and have a one night stand. What followed was a massive screwup that followed that night that went for several years to come until they ended back up in each others orbit after all that time. When they do end up back together after all that time, there is a huge misunderstanding and Gwen is sort of a twit which made me want to smack her BUT knowing where she was coming from, made it easier to forgive her because Garrett wasn’t super clean in all this but when things were found out, he did try to fix them. He after the past, did try to do everything he could to make amends but Gwen sort of didn’t want to hear it. It was maddening and amazing to watch these lovers come back together and get their second chance. Oh these sexy rockers (Garrett) and their ways… Gwen and her sassy ways… its going to come to a head and when it does, will Gwen and Garrett get their HEA? Or will this be the final nail in their coffin ? I enjoyed the start to the new series and look forward the next book in the series.
