This is how it all started....
Once upon a time there was a girl who couldn't stand to read.
Then she picked up Twilight, or more like her besty forced it on her, and she hasn't been the same since. She devoured YA books left and right. Then Greta came along, and decided it was time for her to grow up. Time for her to broaden her horizons and see what the rest of the booky book world had to offer. Rock Me is the first book she decided to corrupt me with, and so...
was born, and the rest is history!
I quickly learned the devil wears a Greta mask!
Guess she didn't know hot tattoo guys are my kyrptonite;)
I will never be the same.
I have become her minion, and I will do whatever she says because she says so!
So lets get on with it! First a review and then an interview by none other than Greta herself;P
Pick up your copy today at your local indie or Amazon!!
Do it because Greta said so!!! lolz
Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:
Loving him couldn’t be worse than losing him. Could it?
Candace Andrews has had enough of pleasing others. In an act of birthday rebellion, she sets out to please herself—by walking into the tattoo parlor owned by her cousin’s ex-boyfriend. All she wants is a little ink, and Brian’s just the guy to give it to her.
As soon as she submits to his masterful hands, though, the forbidden attraction she’s always felt for him resurfaces…and she realizes the devilishly sexy artist could give her so much more.
Sweet, innocent Candace is the last person Brian expected to see again. She’s everything he’s not, and her family despises him. He doesn’t need the hassle, but he needs her, and this time no one is taking her away. Not even those who threaten to make his life a living hell.
Backed into a corner, Candace faces the worst kind of choice. Cave in to those who think Brian is a living nightmare…or hold her ground and risk it all for the one man who rocks her world.
Warning: This book contains explicit sex, naughty language, tattoos aplenty, family drama, a hot rock concert…and a bad boy hero who’s pierced in all the right places.
So OMG I don't even know what to say....Shocker I now! lolz So I should probably start by saying that Rock me is the first Erotica book I have ever read. Also shocking, and again I know. How did I come to reading this totally erotic, leaving you walking around in a haze of passion, nothing can bother you mood seducing book?
One word, Greta. Sweet and apparently not so innocent Greta. For the love of BOB girl what have you done. What little virtue I had is now gone. Blown completely to smithereens. And I DON'T want it back.
Virtue you will NOT be missed! lolz
Ok enough of my lusting lets see if I can actually review this thing. *thinks cold thoughts*
Brian is my kryptonite. No seriously I mean it, he is my real life heroin. Just ask the hubs about the 36 hours of pain I made him sit through to get his full back tattooed. Lady's, Brian is the utter definition of the word HAWT! He is the bad boy from the right side of the tracks, covered in tatts, owns his own parlor, and has an apa piercing! (for those of you who don't know what that is do yourself a favor and google, I'll wait.)
Ok you back? Hope no one fainted lolz;)
Brian meets Candice, a sheltered, does what she is told, good girl. Candice decides to start a rebellion march that leads her right into Brian's tattoo parlor to get some ink done. She has always had a thing for him, even back when her cousin was dating him. Which yes is a little squicky, but hey I've felt that go. lolz I don't really know what else to say besides one thing leads to a smexy other, and bada bing bada boom. Num Num Num.
This wasn't entirely what I expected out of an Erotica novel. I guess I was thinking more along the lines of the written version of cheesy porn. This was so SO not that. I actually found myself getting sucked into the characters lives. Rooting for Candice to find her independence. Wanting to shake her every time she pulled away from Brian. All in all this book left me wanting in some pretty seductress kind of ways if you know what I mean *winks*.
I would like to say that I HATE the cover. I mean really? They could have put someone with some actually ink on the cover. It would have been way hotter. Trust me I know a thing or two on the subject and the guy on the cover doesn't fit the bill. Also what do they have that girl dressed in. Candice is supposed to be the good girl virgin. The girl on the cover looks like a porn star! Sorry but I'm not buying it;(
I have come to the understanding that this book is not liked by some because they say it is a rip off of a popular fanfic that shall remain nameless. Keep in mind that I haven't read that. Which is something that I am going to fix a.s.a.p. Also keep in mind that like a virgin, I simply have nothing else to compare it too. So for me this is OMG!
So after reading this I decided that I too needed to corrupt someone with this peice of hotness.
So after pacing it on to my dear sweet and innocent friend Sofia.
She is new to GR so be a doll and go befriend her!!
Anyways where was I? Oh yea after she read Rock Me, and was thoroughly defiled, we decided a Q&A was in order. And what better person for the interviewer than the one and only Greta herself!
She asked and here is what we had to say:
Greta: Did you score after reading Rock ME?
Darkfallen: Lets just say the hubz decided he likes when I read Erotica! *waggles eyebrows*
Sofia: Ha! I hadn't scored at all BEFORE I read this story. I don't believe an erotica book would give me the courage, and make me horny enough to go out and just pick some random guy. Not that any guy would reject my offer, but I do have a reputation to maintain....did that sound prissy? lolz Okay, since this WAS a yes or no question, I'll just say, "No, I did not score."
Greta: Did you feel like throwing your purity ring into the trash and racing off to your nearest tattoo parlor?
Darkfallen: Purity ring?? Ummm...can you use it in a sentence? I'm not familiar of which you speak. LOLZ But no seriously if I could find the damn thing to begin with it is definitely being thrown into the trash, and hell yes I need some ink!!!
Sofia: No, but before I read this, I was considering getting a tattoo in the most non sexy place on my body, but after being warped into Rock Me I may just change my placement for the hell of it. Under/on/side boob? By my....danger zone? Hmm. I just need to make sure I remember to wax!
*Darkfallen clears throat* go with the danger zone...
Greta: This was your first Erotica book. Do you have any complaints about the lack of romance, and the overwhelming amount of sex? How would you compare this to watching porn?
Darkfallen: I don't have any complaints about reading this book....okay maybe one. That I am utterly addicted to it! This is what I meant by "the devil wears a Greta Mask," and goddess help me I think I love the Devil! LOLZ I didn't really feel like it lacked in the romance. I mean yes we did get pretty much down to business, but there was still a story behind it. As for how this compares to porn? It blows porn out of the window. I mean anything is better than "Hey did someone order a pizza?" then bow chicca bow bow. LMAO
Sofia: Well since it was an Erotica book, I went into knowing the author wasn't going to paint a lovey dovey romance picture for me. More like a pantyless picture;) This is NOT my first erotica/mature content story I've read. My mind was already raped with these descriptive words, so I wasn't as shocked or surprised as I thought I was going to be. I still kept an eye on who was around while reading it. I'll think twice before I decide to read it in my university's library. What was I thinking?
Greta: You poor thing! Did you feel dirty while reading this book with the lights on? Did you ever look over your shoulder to make sure no one was watching while you read about meat whistles, and sweater puppies?
Darkfallen: Ummm did I feel dirty? Well let me put it to ya this way. On several occasions I lay reading this in bed, and even though it was only 30 something degrees outside, I was burning up. Resulting in stripping of blankets, and when that proved to not be enough I lost my shirt. End result: A girl wearing panties and a bra, blushing from head to toe, laptop on her lap, and I was still hot!
Sofia: Let's just say I jumped every time I heard a noise in my house. I jumped when I heard the mailman outside stuffing my mail! I'm not ashamed to read Rock Me, I mean it's really good, but I wouldn't want my 8 yr old sister coming up behind me asking what a "Dutch Rudder" is. LOLZ
Greta: Are there more Erotica books in your future, or did this one scare you back into the land of PG-13?
Darkfallen: Yea well about that....did I mention that I'm addicted? That Greta as awakened the beast within? Just ask me about a book called Backstage Pass that I devoured a few days ago! *wink wink*
Sofia: I think there could be more Erotica books in my future. I don't read it to feel horny or because I refuse to go out and buy a porno, when I could read something like one minus the guilt. I certainly wouldn't put these books on my shelf in my room, but more like under my pillow, or tucked under my seat in my car in case I'm stuck in traffic :)
Hope you enjoyed our journey in Erotica!
Now tell us about your. Have you taken the plunge?
