I have been watching him since I was a child.
He didn’t notice me back then and it didn’t matter. Brad Snyder, guitarist and singer for one of the world’s greatest bands, was my entire life.
My father, the CEO of Ramsey Records, takes credit for all of Brad’s success, trying to control him in the same way he’s controlled me.
But I finally get an opportunity to prove myself.
To be wild.
To be free.
Today I’m auditioning to be the replacement bass player for Brad’s band. If I get the job, I’ll go on tour and work with Brad every day, in very close proximity.
There’s only one rule: he’s not allowed to touch the boss’s daughter.
Remember when I said that Brad never used to notice little ol’ me?
Well, Brad’s noticing me now.
In a way that’s going to get us both in trouble.
My name is Lael Ramsey and we all know how this will turn out.

Rocked Up was my second novel by Karina Halle and my first by Scott Mackenzie. I enjoyed the concept of the story and I really liked the characters. It had been a while since I had read a rock star romance, and I liked returning to the world of music. There were definitely aspects of the book that I liked more than others, and I didn’t care for Lael’s father at all, but luckily none of it was too bad or annoying and I really enjoyed the book.
Brad and Lael were very likable, relatable and entertaining characters, and I enjoyed reading the story from both of their points of view. I liked the close bond and relationship they had with each other, and I liked how it progressed throughout. Their chemistry together, both on and off the stage, was amazing and certainly undeniable. The book was missing a certain spark that prevented me from giving it five stars, but I really enjoyed reading Brad and Lael’s love story and I was very happy with the conclusion.
Rocked Up was not my favorite book that I’ve read by Karina Halle so far, but it will certainly not be the last. I loved her writing style and I am extremely looking forward to reading more of her books very soon!
