5/5 Review: Rock Me Two Times by Dawn Ryder




Rock star Syon Braden writes and plays the most extreme-and profitable-music from the depths of his shredded heart. He's got a double platinum record, adoring fans, and success for his band Toxsin-but it's what he can't have that he craves. Custom leather designer Kate Napier has her sights set on success, and that means keeping irresistible rock stars like Syon out of her bed. The chance to tour with the band and provide them with a fantastic custom wardrobe is too major an opportunity to turn down. But immersion in the dark, wild world of Toxsin on tour means Kate's about to get rocked...hard...body and soul.

**********

Rock Me Two Times by Dawn Ryder is a book that gripped me from the beginning to the end.  Syon Braden is a rock star.  He is the lead singer of the band Toxsin.  He is used to people only seeing him in terms of what he can give them.  So when he meets Kate Napier he is intrigued with her, because she wants nothing to do with him.  She made a judgment without getting to know him, because he is a rock star.  When he finds out that she is the best at working leather he gets in touch with her business partner and sets things up to have tour with the band so that she can make the costumes.  While on tour he has the time to seduce her and make her realize that there is more to the band than just party animals.  Unfortunately, their road manager, Cid is totally against them showing anything other than being party animals.  He sees Kate as a rival for being a deciding factor in how the band is run, so he takes steps to try and get her out of the picture.  Kate and Syon have to deal with all of the opposing opinions and beliefs that are trying to keep them together.  They have to work on getting to know one another.  They have to learn to trust each other as well.  The only thing that bothered me a little was that Syon sometimes doesn’t seem to listen to what Kate has to say.  He makes up for it and apologizes, but she still doesn’t get her point across.  I love the chemistry between the Kate and Syon, the almost compulsive need to touch each other and to be around each other.  I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves a rocker!  I hope that Dawn Ryder brings us more books on Toxsin!  I want to see how the others turn out.
