10 cities in two weeks 10 famous rock stars
On my knees
Against the wall
On my tits
I don't care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it.
Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.
He told me I was too uptight.
So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea.
What I didn't know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I've got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.
Rock stars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.
Hollywood is calling.
I get to choose which rock stars I want.
The stakes are high.
This sh*t just got real.
What could go wrong?

Here’s the deal: I cannot like a book when I can’t stand the protagonist. I really wanted to like this book, and for the first quarter of the book, I was on the fence, and then about halfway through the book, it just ruined it for me. I get that she’s had a hard life, but she was so wishy-washy! Ugh. She was whiny and self-destructive, and she had no good qualities at all in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong - you want to be a badass and sleep around? Go for it. But this character had almost two personalities depending on the situation she found herself in, and it was almost impossible to connect with her. Lucky deserved better.
Story drags and I just couldn't get into it. Wasted 1/3 of the book and time. Sorry!
I thought this book was very good. Raven and Lucky were meant to be, even though it took her a while to realize it.
This story had more layers than what I thought I was getting into when I started reading it. I loved the connection between Lucky and Raven as well as the journey Raven had to take to find herself.
What can I say about Rock F*ck Club? This story is EXACTLY what you'd expect..and so much more! Michelle Mankin rocked with RFC. The premise is unique, the characters engaging and it's perfectly executed . If there is one "lifestyle" that is the epitome of drama it's the world of rock-n-roll, and it's clear Mankin knows this world and how to how plot some drama. It's a world that is not for the faint of heart and there are moments that RFC gets pretty darn intense, deliciously intense that is. The story opens with a young woman in tears as Raven discovers her rock star boyfriend in a compromising position. Rock stars, go figure? But Raven devises the best revenge plan. One that empowers her. She'll be in charge and she's decide who among the primo rock musicians she'll sleep with. All on her terms. With her bestie Marsha, she sets out to level the playing field and the Rock F*ck Club becomes a movement. Mankin captures the rawness and churn of the emotions that Raven experiences throughout the "tour". There are a few "trophies" (potential and actual) that force Raven to make choices that lead to some potentially soul damaging predicaments, leading her to make choices she might have avoided. Attraction and revulsion co-mingle as plans get derailed and interactions go sideways. However, with risk comes reward. There may be a certain candidate who manages to get under Ravens' skin (and vice versa). This man among boys, I'll call him the "favorite potential inductee" is one lovable and luscious luminary. But most importantly, he cares and he's genuine. Their connection complicates her task and makes for some interesting escapades. Mankins characters are complex without being overly complicated and fussy. Backstories serve their purpose well, they flush out who they are and why they've become what they've become. Raven is endearing; loyal, logical and driven, and she's also very kind. Nothing she does hurts anyone else and she's mindful of that. As you'd expect, there's a fair amount of secondary characters that advance the story and Raven's plight. Mankin brings in some of the characters from her other series and mixes things up by putting Raven firmly in the hot seat. She's got a path, but does she want to stick to it. Does she have a choice? I'll admit I came into this read with the standard assumptions about rock stars and life on tour. Mankin took my expectations of the lifestyle to a new level of fantasy (not that I'll ever be able to witness it but a girl can dream ~ ). Her writing style is descriptive and made me feel as though I was a part of the tour, on the bus and ready hit the highway. I have more highlights than I can count. I don't believe this is a part of a series but I sure would love to check in on Sky, Rocky and the boys (wink wink, nudge nudge) RFC is 5 stars of well paced adventure and fun. I recommend this to all you lovers of rock star romance! #girlpower #rockallstars
What would you do if you caught your rocker boyfriend doing a groupie on a surprise visit to see him? Raven decided to go out on a drunk and then make a wild rant on social media about how it’s time to turn the tables on these rockers and give them a taste of their own medicine. She was forming a club where she would be the one picking which rocker she wanted for sex and then leave as soon as the deed was done. This sounds like a great idea for a change until she gets signed for a reality tv show and HAS to do this ten times at various venues across the U.S. while being filmed. So who wouldn’t like being the one to have your choice of which rocker she was going to do? It sounds great that is unless you met someone who is perfect in every way. I fell in love with Lucky myself and who wouldn’t; he was a fantastic lead singer in a band from England who was every bit of tall, dark and handsome and who knew how to make you feel special. Will Lucky stick around while Raven finishes her contract or will the idea with her with other men and at times even witnessing the production of her picking her rocker for the night out be too much for him to handle? The supporting characters are primed for their own books as well and I’d love to hear what happens with Skye and Rocky. I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.
If too much sex, taboo sex, etc., is not your thing, or offends you, you probably won't want to read this. Because as you can probably tell from the title it is basically about sex. I'm going to be honest, and you know I liked this book, I gave it 5 stars. But honestly, I love that it didn't water down what the actual plot/storyline was supposed to be. She really did follow through with her 10 rock stars, well, for the most part. Early on in the story she did meet the one that she ends up with, the one that she will fall in love with. But at first he was kind of irritating to her. So she kept going with her plan. There was one of the guys that turned out to be a bad guy, and intended to do things she didn't want to do, force her even. And the way the author handled that whole situation was done well in my opinion. This book definitely was one that gave the woman the power, the permission if you will, to take her sexuality and do with it as she wanted, not to feel she had to conform to what society believes. It also showed that not only was it okay, there was a guy out there, who while he may not have been happy, he was jealous, he didn't shame her or look down on her as society does. And I think that is important in the world of romance, that it can be shown that way. Again, that is my opinion. I met this author for the first time at the Kinky in Kansas City Convention this past March, and I look forward to seeing her again at Book Bonanza in July, and will probably buy another book from her. Well, if I decide to do any pre-ordering! But I know I will read more by her in the future. She knows how to put the steam into the love story.
A suprisingly beautiful story...i cried during the epilogue.
Wow! What a novel premise! It's...it's refreshing! I love it! Women should be able to be comfortable and confident in their sexuality without fear of judgement. I liked Raven's taking a stand against the injustice of society's double-standards when it comes to sex. I felt the irony that in wanting control over her sexuality she was put on a path where she had none - but a path that allowed her the ability to find herself as well as love. Because while on the surface RFC might look like a simple story of a girl getting her jollies and lifting a finger to her ex as well as society, it's so much more. It's a journey whereby Raven finds herself. A drunken rant is the set up for RFC - after Raven finds her rockstar boyfriend in a compromising position with a groupie. She feels heartbroken and upset by men's ability to screw any time, any place. The RFC was born. I adored Raven even if her decisions at times made me scratch my head. She's flawed but also loyal and loving - determined to right all the wrongs of her past. She thinks she knows who she is - marked by the tragedy of losing people close to her - but barely into her journey of self-empowerment, she finds herself on a journey of self-discovery when she meets Lucky Spencer. Lucky seems the typical front man for an up-and-coming band. Talented, sexy, cocky. But he's more than he appears - just as he believes Raven is. He's compassionate, protective, and loyal to her family and friends. And he sees - nay he feels something when he first sets eyes on Raven. I think this was a journey of self-discovery for both Raven and Lucky - but mostly Raven. The events, as they unfolded, were riveting - sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes heartwarming. I relished getting mentions of and cameos from all the bans I've bet in Mankin's books - specifically King, Ash, and Ryland. It added a nice touch for long-time fans but new readers won't be lost at all. Getting to know a whole new cast of characters who are just as compelling as ones I already know has me eager for more. I'm hoping for quite a few more books starring several of my favorites from RFC. I'm so excited about this new side of Mankin. She's really stretching her creative muscles and the results are incredible! Not only did she create a story around characters I was immediately invested in, but she also brought to life the positives and negatives of life as a rockstar, and incorporated some Native American lore, as Raven is of Native American descent. All in all, RFC was gripping - a story I didn't want to put down. And one where, in the end, I was proud of Raven. She set out to empower herself - and she did accomplish that. But she accomplished so much more!
