    One thought on “Rocked Up”

    1. 4 stars!!!Rocked Up is a fun, sexy, and sweet rockstar romance! I love Karina Halle and when I heard she was co-writing a book with her husband, Scott MacKenzie, I was anxious to read it. I love a good rockstar romance and a surprise pregnancy book, so I had feeling I would enjoy it, and I was right! I was really impressed with the flow of the book. Sometimes when a book is written by two people, you can tell. The flow is off and the tone of the story doesn’t jive. I had no issues with that in [...]

    2. I'm so sorry Karina Halle. Please don't hate me. - - - - - - - - - - It's been 84 years.Ok I'm overreacting. But seriously, I've waited long enough for this book.Karina Halle is like a drug to me. A rockstar romance? I'm so ready, let's do this.

    3. *****FOUR STARS*****ARC Generously Provided by AuthorLove—it’s a drug I’ve never tried because I’ve seen it kill so many others. Maybe I am the drug and deep down I know I’m no good. What kind of man needs this life I’m living? What kind of man wants to stand on stage and have tens of thousands of people scream for him? There is so much fakeness I have lost myself in and I’m so completely selfishCKED UP is the first writing collaboration between Karina Halle and her husband, Scot [...]

    4. ➦I have to be honest and say that this book totally and completely sucked me in from the very beginning. Brad, a boy who has nothing get picked up by a major recording label and is made into a star. There's a backstory which I enjoyed very much and it certainly made a strong opening for this book.➦Years later Brad's band is looking for a bassist for the tour and hires a young talented female who brings a unique sound to their performances. Well, it turns out she's a daughter of the big boss [...]

    8. Lael has been crushing on rock star Brad since she was only 14! That was seven years ago. Now she’s 21 and he’s 27 which is not such a bad age difference anymore…. BUT.The BUT in this case is Lael’s dad. He’s no other than the boss of Ramsey Records. And he kind of owns Brad!

    9. DNF @ 60%Welp, I didn't last very much longer than my last updateThis, unfortunately, couldn't hold my attention. I found myself doing other things instead of reading, and even going to extent of playing games on my iPad which I know is a bad sign!I didn't connect to the characters, and I also really didn't feel their connection to each other. I know this has been liked by many readers, but it just didn't work for me 😔

    10. 4.5 Stars! Lael Ramsey is the daughter of a successful record producer. Her dad owns the record label, Ramsey Records. He represents her all time favorite band, And Then. She has a massive crush on the lead singer & guitarist, Brad Snyder. She attends one of his shows when she is 14. She's so starstruck she completely humiliates herself. Seven years has gone by & shes been obsessed with Brad for years. He's one of the main reasons she loves music. His music has always inspired her. She w [...]

    11. This is a debut collaboration between wife and husband, Karina Halle and Scott MacKenzie. The writing flowed and while told in alternating POVs, there was no indication this was written by two authors. This wasn't what I was expecting, at times it was more sobering than I'd anticipated, but with it came insight and a maturity that was refreshing. This is both a forbidden love and rock star romance, and it includes a pregnancy - hence the title.Lael and Brad were years apart in age, yet closer in [...]

    12. This was ok but something was missing for me. After all the build up that first steamy scene was a huge disappointment. Also, I know this probably sounds stupid but I hated how many times Brad used the word fella.

    13. It goes without saying, but when Karina Halle writes something, I'm definitely going to read it. Throw in help from her husband who co-wrote the book, well, that just takes this delightful romance to the next level! For me, Karina Halle and romantic comedy never went together, until this book! I'm not sure if this is a first for her in this genre, or if I'm missing something, but what Karina and Scott did here with Brad and Lael's story was simply magnetic! These two characters pulled me in and [...]

    14. 3.25 - 3.5 starsSafe and sweet book.But not very exciting. It wasn’t that boring, but also not captivating.Likable MCs. Hero was NOT a manwhore, and she wasn’t a virgin. No OM/OW drama at all.Possible trigger: (view spoiler)[unplanned pregnancy (please let me roll my eyes) (hide spoiler)]Cute epilogue!

    15. I was super excited to read this one, I really didn't know what to expect from this new writing duo - one of my faves Karina Halle and her husband Scott MacKenzie.It was obvious from the cover that an unexpected pregnancy was to take place, but I was so intrigued as to how famous rock star Brad Snyder and new bandmate and Bass player Lael Ramsay would get themselves into this predicament.I loved their chemistry, and it was a lot sweeter than I thought it would be, but I really enjoyed spending t [...]

    16. More rock star romance than romantic comedy I’ve been highly anticipating this release for a couple months now after Miss Halle shared the great cover and teased that it would be more of a romantic comedy along the lines of Smut. I loved Smut, was intrigued with the idea of a husband and wife writing team, and am always up for a good rock star romance, so it was a no-brainer for me to sign up to review this title. I think having specific expectations ended up being the downfall for this book f [...]

    17. As with any Karina Halle review, I start off with how much I love her work. I was super excited to see what she does with her husband, Scott Mackenzie. With any collaboration, the writing will be different that what you are used to. I will admit that I felt the descriptive writing style was a bit more than I prefer. I felt that sometime things were a bit drawn out but that was just my personal preference.This is a rocker romance story and it’s clear from the cover that there is a pregnancy at [...]

    19. **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**"She's a ray of sunshine; I am creating life with the sun."I have to admit that I hesitated to read this book because I am not a big fan of rockstar romances. However I wanted to give Rocked Up a chance because Karina co-wrote this book. I was looking forward how Scott and she would tackle this type of story. I wasn't disappointed at all. I absolutely LOVED the prologue, it was so funny and it really set the mood for me. I was really thankful that [...]

    20. When I started this book I was apprehensive I didn't know if it was my type of book.Am I glad I gave it a chance and read it? Yes I'm happy I did.Brad is not like any other rockstar, he's a loner, he doesn't do drugs or drink alcohol.They meet when Lael is 14 and he's 20 this did not bother me because he only saw her as a kid. He is not a manwhore and he only have eyes for the h.I didn't like the h in the beginning she had a borderline obsession with the H when she met him. She had a relationshi [...]

    21. ARC kindly provided by author.I never pass on a chance to read about bad-boy musicians and the women who love them. It's my thing and I love it!I always have really high expectation when it comes to Karina Halle books and I was not disappointed.Rocked up is a collaboration between Karina Halle and her husband Scott Mackenzie. Well, they should do this more often. Scott wrote male (Brad) POV and Karina wrote female (Lael). This was funny, cute, sexy, without unnecessary drama and a bit different [...]

    22. Rocked up is such a refreshing " rock-star" read. The premise alone is interesting and the approach to the story unique. Lael Ramsy gets what EVERY girl wants - A chance to join her very most favorite rock band, on tour, as their bass player. I don't know a girl (or guy for that matter) who didn't fantasize about this scenario at one point in time or another. Actually, Lael earns the opportunity and her life is blessedly forever changed.Lael has loved the band And Then and lead singer Brad Snyde [...]

    23. 3.5 stars!Fun and sweet rockstar romance. It needed more rhythm, the characters were likeable and for a rockstar romance, some parts of the storyline were definitely refreshing for sure but I wanted more rock and roll!

    24. Release Date: 17 May 2017Now Live and Available on all platforms. Price is 2.99 and will go to 4.99 after release!!Kindle: bit/RU-KindleNook: bit/RU-NookKobo: bit/RU-KOBOThank you so much to Karina Halle and Scott Mackenzie for the ARC! This was Karina and Scott first collaboration and just like Lael and Brad (the heroine and hero in the in this story) they worked beautifully together. This is not your usual rock star novel. Brad does not get caught up in the trappings that come with being the l [...]

    25. I wanted to like this book, I swear I was so excited for it but it didn't do it for me. I like the premise and it could have been good but it's so rushed and Aℓℓ the characters are so one dimensional. It was just not well written or looked over almost as if this was a first draft. One minute her dad is basically threatening brads life and an asshole then he's like name it after my wife? I don't know this just wasn't a thought out book and the characters need more. I felt absolutely no emotio [...]
