I’m not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that’s what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money – and women – than I know what to do with. But what you don’t see is the wreckage I’ve caused. The memories and pain I can’t escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn’t work. It hurt me and – worse – it hurt my band. That’s the last thing I want to do, so I’m cleaning up my act… starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice – Delaney is the perfect “girlfriend.” When I’m with her I don’t have to pretend. It’s like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that’s dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn’t actually exist. He’s a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it’s impossible to love a lie, right?


ROCK KING is the first installment in Tara Leigh’s Nothing but Trouble series AND it also happens to be the first book that I’ve been fortunate enough to read from this incredibly talented author.

Rockstar romances are my ultimate weakness, just take a look at some of my favorite reads, and let me say that this book was certainly no exception. My heart still swoons every time I think back to Shane and Delaney’s connection! Although this story might be considered your typical insta-love rockstar romance with a dash of fake relationship thrown into the mix, I don’t freaking care because I loved every second of it!

Shane Hawthorne is the lead singer of the hottest rock band, Nothing But Trouble, and he has it least that’s what society thinks. He believes if people knew the real Shane they wouldn’t be worshiping the ground he walked on, but rather running in the opposite direction. He will do whatever it takes to protect his secrets, even if that means hiring fake girlfriend after fake girlfriend so that no one ever gets too close. That is until the moment he lays eyes on Delaney and then all bets are off. He wants her and he certainly isn’t going to back down until she’s his.

Delaney Fraser certainly didn’t expect to be a twenty-four year old waitress stuck serving the rich and famous of Los Angeles. When she runs into her an old high school friend, more like nemesis, she suddenly finds herself being offered the job of a lifetime…pretend to be Shane Hawthorne’s girlfriend for six months while on tour. What’s six months anyways? If she does this she will have enough money to finish her last semester of college and find her footing, but she has a few secrets of her own…and it might not be as easy as she thought, especially when she starts to develop feelings for him.

Secrets are about to be revealed…To find out what they are make sure to pick up a copy of ROCK KING today!
