Rock Legend by Tara Leigh

Fans of Kristen Callihan, L.J. Shen, and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I'm no Prince Charming.

Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I'm also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, "The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet." Apparently, I'm a legend.

Am I surprised? Hell, no. It's a reputation I've earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune... and spent every damn day since pretending I don't regret it.

Now fate's dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it's a second chance for me – for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can't give Piper a future.

Because there's a difference between a legend and a fairy tale...
Only one of them ends happily ever after.

I completely and thoroughly enjoyed this story. Piper was a character I could relate to and get behind. I love Landon's character also and found him very redeemable as the rock star who found the love he never thought he deserved. I sometimes get annoyed by every romance almost always ending with a baby, but this one was perfectly written. I really could sympathize with Piper and her thoughts on becoming a parent after having a cold and distant father. The pacing was good with no lags in plot line even with some "pretty prose" of which I actually found really well written instead of extraneous. It's been a bit since I didn't have to skim like crazy through a romance story!

Rock Legend was perfect summertime reading!

This is the second book in the series, and I highly recommend that you read Rock King first, as this will be much the richer for it – also it is a really good read, so why miss out? I loved Shane's story, and Landon's is just as good.

We met both Landon and Piper in Rock King, but little could one expect to get such a rich story from them! Piper was rather Delaney's nemesis from high school, and Landon was the drummer that every groupie had had. Once we learn more about Piper's past, and why Landon deserted her, we rather change our opinion of her and his previous behaviour.

I really enjoyed the premise for this story and think that it works really well as a second chance romance, and most definitely as a rock star one. The uptight Piper and the completely off-the-wall Landon make for an unusual mix, but they quite clearly feel a huge amount for each other. When a foolish act causes an injury which could threaten the band's future, the pair are forced to face their past and consider whether there might be a future. Obviously there are obstacles, some which one might expect and others which are completely off the wall. But they all add to the drama, and the unfolding realisation that life is sometimes more than we bargain for, and that risks can make it all the richer.

I am definitely putting these two books on my reread list and look forward to reading them again soon.

She attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.
