Weekly musing: rock romance

15 March 2018

This week we are going to discuss one of my favourite genres that has popped up in romance in the past couple of years: rock romance.

Rock romance has exploded into the romance genre of late. I am only too thrilled, as I am LOVING this new subgenre. So what exactly is rock romance I hear you ask? Well it is where the romance book is set in the musical world of rock stars: singers, bands, managers, etc. They range in sensuality from mild to explosive.

Common elements found in these stories are that the hero is usually the rock star and the heroine is predominately an unknown thrown into the limelight.

Common tropes and some favorite of mine are: mistaken identity; second chance at love; redemption; reformed player; secret baby; fake engagement. What are your favourite rock romance tropes?

My favourite rock romance authors are: Kylie Scott, Nalini Singh and Kristen Callihan. Who are your favourite rock romance authors and must reads/recommendations?

My top 10 must-read rock romances:

  • Lick by Kylie Scott (Stage Dive)
  • Idol by Kristen Callahan (VIP)
  • Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning (Sinners of Tour)
  • Dirty by Kylie Scott (Dive Bar)
  • What Goes On Tour by Clarie Boston (The Texan Quartet)
  • Blind Attraction by Eden Summers (Reckless Beat)
  • Rock Kiss by Nalini Singh (Rock Kiss)
  • Strings by Kendall Grey (Hard Rock Harlots)
  • Midnight Blue by LJ Shen
  • Drumline by Stacy Krestwuck

My favourite covers:

Happy reading!

    I’m a huge fan of Kylie Scott’s rock series — and her YA book TRUST. I also love Karina Bliss’s rock stars. Haven’t read Nalini’s yet. I love her writing, but am saving her rock stars for a rainy day when I need a guaranteed good read.

    I read Midnight Blue. The author has such a wonderful voice. It’s almost like poetry, at times.
