ARC Review: Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh

Rock Wedding
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Rock Kiss (Book 4)
Publication: TKA Distribution (July 19, 2016)

Description: New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Rock Kiss series with a hot, sweet, emotional contemporary romance about love and forgiveness…

After a lifetime of longing for a real family, Sarah Smith thought she’d finally found her home with rock star Abe Bellamy, even if she knew Abe didn’t love her the way she loved him. But their brief relationship, filled with tragedy and heartache, nearly destroyed her. Alone, emotions in turmoil, and already shaky self-esteem shattered, Sarah struggles to pick up the pieces in the wake of their divorce.

Abe knows he’s to blame for the end of his marriage. Caught in a web of painful memories, he pushed away the best thing in his life – the sexy, smart woman he adores – breaking them both in the process. Then fate throws him a second chance to get things right, to prove to Sarah that she means everything to him. Abe desperately wants that second chance at love...even if he knows he doesn’t deserve it.

But can he convince Sarah – now strong and independent without him – to risk her wounded heart one more time?

My Thoughts: ROCK WEDDING was an emotional roller coaster of a book. It begins with Sarah walking out on Abe who is in the depths of his drug and alcohol addiction. She can no longer be the only one in love. His words convince her that she will never gain his love.

The story starts again more than a year later. Sarah fell into a new relationship and had a stillborn baby but her new man turns abusive. Abe is clean and sober and has been for more than eight months. He is determined to win her back but she isn't ready to trust her heart to him again.

One careless night together results in another pregnancy. Abe is determined to prove to Sarah that he is man who stays, a man who can be trusted with her love and with their child. This story is about their internal struggles. There is no one who is trying to tear them apart beyond their own fears and trust issues.

It was good seeing the other members of the band with their own loves. This was a book of weddings since all of the couples got married in this one. I loved how they all became a close knit family always ready to support each other.

I cried when I read about Sarah's stillborn baby and her weekly visits to her grave. I blushed when she and Abe made love. And my heart swelled with joy as they managed to fall in love again for keeps.

Favorite Quote:
His world threatened to shatter.

But then he realized: words were easy. It was the doing that was hard.

He'd have to do. He'd have to lover her until she had no choice but to trust in his love.
I got this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
