Rock Me - Book Review Cherrie Lynn
Have you ever met that one person that you couldn't have because he was dating someone you knew, whether family or friend? You just knew this person was the one you wanted to be with and you knew he just had to want you, too... But, you also knew that it would never work, and that there was no way a guy like that would ever want you...
Well, that's what position Candace was in.
Cherrie Lynn wrote this book for JulNoWriMo. For such a short period to write a complete novel, Lynn did a fantastic job. But, I will admit that I am always biased when the characters are a tattooed hunk and an innocent girl; that was a past relationship for me, except the tattooed hunk wasn't so much a hunk, just tattooed.
Anyway, I was much captivated by the story, even though it was a fairly simple concept.
The basic storyline included the innocent girl who just wants to run her own life. She wants a little rebellion in her life, but she still wants to be approved by her parents, who are near Nazi controllers.
Brian is the tattoo artist who is that rebellion, but neither want the relationship to be a short-lived one. Brian tries to get Candace to stay, but she is fearful of her parents.
In the end, Brian does a very expected thing that any guy in love would do, but unexpected for the bad boy that he is. You'll have to read the book, but you'll definitely see what I'm talking about.
Yes, there are a few surprises in the plot-lines that I didn't exactly expect to happen, but for the most part, there were a good handful of twists that were more anticipated actions than surprises.
I do plan on reading the book again, but only because I read it the first time within a matter of two days, as I read for personal pleasure and anticipation as to many fantasies I've had (IE tattooed hunk and innocent girl).
Upon first reading, though, I don't think that I missed much. This isn't exactly the book that has too much hidden, so a second read, more than likely, will not bring any unexpected symbols or turns that I didn't see the first time around. But, that doesn't mean that I won't reread the story, as it has elements in it that remind me of my own past love life, as well as aspects that I wouldn't mind in my current (lacking) love life.
For a story written for as a Novel Writing Month story, it was definitely worth the read.
