Real Ugly (Hard Rock Roots #1) - A Gritty Rock Star Romantic Suspense

WARNING: You are about to dive into a dark, gritty world of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Don't start reading unless you're into true love, hot sex, music that touches the soul, and tall as f*ck roller coasters. This series will make you laugh, cry, sweat, hate, love, think, and wonder. You will be torn in two and sewn back together, and you'll want it to happen all the h*ll over again. The characters in this book will drive you crazy, and they'll curse like sailors. We all love the word f*ck. A lot.

Don't turn the page unless you're ready to get torn apart like the world's hardest rock riff.

"These are real people with real problems. This is real life, and it's real f*cked up."

Turner Campbell is an a**hole.
I f*cking hate him.
But I can't get enough either.
He sings like an angel and f*cks like a devil.
If I could, I'd run away and never look back because to tell you the truth, I think this man might be the death of me.

& & &

Naomi Knox is a b*tch.
I can't f*cking stand her.
But I can't stop thinking about her either.
She looks like an angel and plays like a devil.
If I could, I'd f*ck her good and forget all about her, but to tell you the truth, I think this woman might be my last saving grace.

About the Author

C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn't mind - especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.

She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she's not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She's the author of over forty novels - romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There's a heck of a lot to do there.

Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She's already looking forward to it.

Oh. My. Effing.. God. I know this book just came out. Like, hours ago. I know that the author is releasing four books this month. I know this is WAY too much to ask, BUT I WANT BOOK TWO NOW! This book is freakin’ ridiculous. Turner and Naomi are a charged pair and every time they’re near each other the sparks fly. This book truly shows that there’s a fine line between love and hate. In this first installment, you get a real peek into Naomi’s colorful past. The secrets that are hidden beneath her rock star surface are completely chilling and traumatizing. These secrets just don’t want to stay hidden. Someone knows Naomi’s secret and is tormenting her with it. Turner spends the majority of the story confused by Naomi's hot and cold behavior. He knows that he knows Naomi from someplace, but just can't place it. He doesn't even realize how involved he is in her dirty little secrets. Just like every other CM Stunich book, this book has a stunning realistic quality. I love the raw edges I find in every single one of her books that I've read, and it makes me come back for more every time. There's no sugar coating here kids - just real people, real problems, and real drug use. It is so difficult to review this book without spoilers, but trust me. You want to read this book. This book is amazing and the end will have you screaming for more. Note: I received this book directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Cliffhanger indeed!!!!! Thank you C.M. for giving us your apology at the end for was thoughtful. But OMG......I need answers like now so I'll be getting on that ASAP. Loved this book and hate it all at the same time. First just when you think there is a breakthrough us readers react to "Really!" Love the characters but love love the twist of not knowing what the hell is going on. Love that the main character Knox has a past and her past is huge but what is her fate in all this...who were they?? On to the next...

Wow…times infinity. I absolutely loved this book. It kept me up three nights in a row, feverishly flipping the proverbial pages on my kindle, only to freak out when it died and I couldn't find my power cord. Never fear, people, I found my power cord, and all is right with the world. CM Stunich wove a story that not only was fan-freaking-tastic, but so true to the rock star life I wondered if she'd been a groupie. No judgments here, if she had. I just wish I could've gone along :) She nailed it…I said NAILED it! Naomi Knox and Turner Campbell burn all kinds of hot in this book, and you get sucked into their love and dysfunction that you literally are yelling at your kindle telling them what to do. Favorite line (Only because it's soooooo true of a woman's mind): "I could never love Dax because … because I hate Turner so much." Yeah, that's some good stuff!

C.M. Stunich Real Ugly Hard Rock Roots #1 Your either going to love or hate this book! Admittedly, it took me a little while to get into the writing style and language used (I tend to read YA / paranormal), but if swearing, drugs, sex and real life doesn’t bother you then I would definitely give this series a try. Naomi and Turner are both completely messed up, and a therapist would be set for life having these two as their clients, but they still draw you in and I couldn’t help but start to love them, want a slightly less messed up life for them both. You’re likely to want to shout and scream at some of the characters, throw the book / kindle across the room and stamp your feet in places, but all this did was prove how engrossed I got into the book. A warning though, it does end in one hell of a cliff hanger. First thing I did after finishing this book? Buy book 2, Get Bent, devoured it and I now feel much better about the cliff hanger at the end of Real Ugly. Thankfully Get Bent ends in a much better place for the reader.

Loved this one!! It was delightfully delicious.. Totally not expecting this gem to sucker punch me and hook me in but it sure did... These characters are seriously flawed but that is what I loved about them.. Their issues, insecurities, and drama are what makes this rock and roll book different from the rest...

Holy hell!! This book is crazy and I love it! There are so many different emotions going crazy during the whole story. There's also some mystery as well. Loved it! Can't wait to read Get Bent to see what happens next!
