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?

This was the sweetest story. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Abe after reading the first three books. Ms. Singh message of happen though. A reminder that none of us are perfect and that love is really not a fairy tale, it's a hell of alot of work. I enjoyed getting to know these characters better. Overall, while my favorites are the Psy-Changeling and Angel novels, this series has been a good one and a nice change for Ms. Singh and her fans. I will buy anything she writes; she never disappoints.

The fourth in the Rock Kiss series, Rock Wedding, features Abe and Sarah who were married, and because of Abe’s substance abuse, their relationship was shattered and torn asunder. Abe and Sarah both went into their relationship and marriage with deep emotional scars the first time around. Abe knows that he was the one responsible for breaking Sarah’s heart and doing possibly irreparable damage to their relationship. Abe is determined to be a different man this time around and love Sarah in the way she deserves. After another heartbreaking loss in her life, Sarah is not sure she could ever survive loving and losing Abe again. Abe and Sarah’s story is set with the backdrop of several weddings between the Schoolboy Choir members and their beloveds. Abe coaxes Sarah to gradually rejoin his rock “family” especially after an event that links them inextricably. Abe has one last chance to set things right and win back the only women he has ever loved. Sarah has survived so much heartache, more than even Abe knows; she finally finds herself on solid ground after another bad relationship so it will take much to make her risk all again. Not surprisingly, this book has quite a few emotional lows and highs. Besides being Abe and Sarah’s story, Rock Wedding functions as the denouement of the other main characters of the series. The weddings are a happy time for those who found each other after their own journeys and struggles, but they are also bittersweet for Sarah, especially after she had found her dream man only to have lost him to the devastating effects of addiction. The fun of seeing the previous couples’ unique and individual weddings helps lighten the mood and add joy to the story amidst Abe and Sarah’s pain filled backstory and their tenuous new relationship. The challenge of living it all in the public eye with the stalking paparazzi on the prowl always adds to the mix. Abe is determined to make up for his cruelties of the past and to do whatever it takes to win Sarah back with the help of his band family. Readers who enjoy the Rock Kiss series will be well pleased with this wedding gift.

I like the way this book, while telling the story of Abe and Sarah, also neatly wrapped up things with the other characters so we're not left wondering about their happy endings and how they went after their book was over. I'm a huge fan of second chance romance, so I probably was waiting for this story the most. I can't imagine going through some of the things Sarah had to go through and it makes the reader empathize with her immensely. I wanted things to work out for her. You also have to give it to Abe though, for being a character who realized his flaws and attempted to fix them for the woman he loves. If you liked the rest of the series, you'll like this too!

I loved Abe and Sarah's story ... by far the best in the rock kiss series.

I didn't even finish the book yet but had to stop and review it. I'm pretty sure it's a HEA cause it's a romance novel, but the characters are WORKING to reach this HEA. This book is not cheesy, where everything just falls in place like dominoes, but feels like your hearing a story of your best friends journey. Goodness I would love an Abe, the now-Abe. Beautiful heartwarming story. Teared up several times and cheered for the couple all the time. GO SARAH!!!

Rock Wedding is the fifth installment of the Rock Wedding series by Nalini Singh and I found it to be the strongest to date. The series tells the story of Schoolboy Choir, a fictional band. Abe Bellamy and Sarah Smith fell in love in the early stages of the band's stardom. Abe was struggling with an intense drug addiction and Sarah, troubled herself with low self-esteem, attempted to support him, even though she feared he didn't love her the way she loved him. After an intense fight, Sarah had enough and left Abe and attempted to put her life back together. A few years later, fate throws the two of them back together. After a night of passion, Sarah ends up pregnant and Abe wants to use the connection as a chance to make up for his past mistakes. Sarah is understandably wary of Abe. He hurt her deeply and she worked hard to put the past behind her and become independent. But this version of Abe is visibly trying to create a stronger connection between the two of them and is extremely verbal on his the causes of addiction and the actions he is taking to maintain his sobriety. Of all the Rock Kiss books, this relationship felt the deepest. The history between the characters and rather than some magical connection, you can see the work Sarah and Abe put into the relationship to make it work. Even though there are some issues with the series as a whole, I would recommend this title to fans. Reviewer received title as an ARC on Netgalley.

Perfect "ending" to the series, the best title in the entire series

4 1/2 STARS! A heart-wrenching story filled with highs and lows of a second chance at romance! Sarah Smith thought she had found her happily ever after even though she knew that Abe didn’t love her as deeply as she loved him. She was all in and willing to take anything he dished out … until the night he devastated her heart and broke her spirit. Abe has so many demons on his back that he can’t see straight. Trying to get away from the heartbreak of his past, he is willing to drown himself with hate. He isn’t willing to see what Sarah brings to his life and instead he throws it all away. After the divorce, Sarah pulls herself back up and thrives in the business she starts, but her personal life continues to tear her apart. When Abe happens upon her again, he’s finally coping with his issues and wants another chance with her. Can she bring herself to trust him again?

Nalini Singh hits a high note with Rock Wedding the last book in the Rock Kiss Series. This was Sarah’s and Abe’s story. The novel begins with a prolog from when Sarah and Abe separated and then continues fourteen days after book three when Jeremy Vance hit Sarah at the Zenith Music Festival. I enjoyed discovering more about Sarah and Abe. Both characters changed so much throughout the story. Abe struggled with the death of his little sister Tessa and drug addiction. Sarah became a much more independent woman but also suffered from grief over her son's death that took place in book three. My heart went out to both characters, and everything that they endured. This story had me experiencing every possible emotion. I love that this novel also contained the weddings of multiple band members. After reading the series from the first book, I have grown to love the characters and enjoyed hearing the continuation of their stories. Nalini Singh is an exceptional writer, so I am sure you would be able to follow the book as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the books in order. There are things that happen in the previous books that have relevance in the subsequent stories. Not to mention you will feel more invested in the characters. I was happy to learn in the Author’s Notes at the end of the story that a couple of Rock Kiss short stories are included on Nalini Singh website, and that she is working on some additional short stories set in the Rock Kiss world. Additionally, I was thrilled to discover that she is working on Gabriel’s and Charlotte’s wedding stories along with his rugby playing brothers. So thankfully, we have not seen the last of the Schoolboy Choir. If you enjoy contemporary rock star romances and have not tried this series, you will not want to pass it up. The characters are well-developed and likeable. The plot is believable and exciting. Nalini Singh writing style is extraordinary. They are stories that will touch your heart.

This was a Fantastic story! So beautiful, but is also so emotional and heartbreaking as it deals with some serious emotional issues, addiction, loss of a child/infant, divorce, domestic abuse, homelessness and forgiveness. But as these issues are in the past we get to see how all these issues have impacted the two main characters Abe Bellamy and Sarah Smith. These two characters are lovable and so well developed, you will be thinking of their story long after you are finished. Ms. Singh really brings it all, in this story that captivated me from the beginning to end. Abe Bellamy is a rock star in the famous rock group "School Boy Choir", and Sarah Smith is his ex-wife who left him after he told her he didn't love her. In Rock Wedding we get a glimpse of an addicted Abe from Sarah's POV. After divorcing him, Sarah is all alone, but she proves to everyone that she is no longer going to be a victim. Sarah starts her own business and with a lot of hard work she becomes very successful as she turns her cleaning business into a successful, thriving business. Abe has finally become clean after two years of struggling with his drug addiction and rehab attempts, so when he sees Sarah at a a Music Festival all he wants to do is properly apologize to her. During most of their divorce battle he hadn't been sober, Sarah's opinion of him, meant everything and he had screwed their marriage up beyond redemption. Now that he was sober, Abe isn't going to give up easily. Not when he still loves Sarah. So he sets out to woo her, to regain her trust and her love if he can. Their chemistry is scorching hot. Even with all Sarah has been through with Abe, she cannot resist him. They both open up and finally shares their difficult pasts to one another bringing down their walls and connecting on a level they have never shared before. Abe is a new person to Sarah, as he constantly shows his affection, admiration and support, of her, something she has never had in her life before. He finally may earn his redemption. But as good as this all feels to Sarah she still has doubts that all this could go away in a instant. So will Sarah give in to Love? Or will Sarah move on alone? You will have to read to find out. Highly recommended!! Loved it! Received a complimentary copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a beautiful love story! I adore second chance romances! ROCK WEDDING has all the awesomeness that is Nalini Singh! You get an excellent story, brilliant characters and a love forged in the fires of redemption and forgiveness. Ms. Singh mended my heart as many times as she broke it. Abe and Sarah are amazing together. I loved reading about their journey and all the good—and bad—things that came right along with it. ROCK WEDDING is not just about Abe and Sarah, everyone else makes an appearance too! If you’ve had a favorite couple, you’ll likely see them in the book. I loved the whole book and wished for it never to end! I highly recommend this and any book by Nalini Singh. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

My favorite of the series. An intense read. Understanding Sarah's background sure helped us understand her. What a brave woman who suffered a lot including during her marriage to Abe. It was easy not to like Abe at first, but he won us over with his love and devotion to Sarah and with his wanting to win her back. A great romantic read.
