Book 1 in the Hard Rock Harlots series

WARNING: STRINGS is not suitable for slut shamers, uptight stone throwers, Holier-Than-Thou prudes, humorless virgins, persons with chronic neck or back pain, pearl-clutching bitties, those who disparage crude humor or vulgarity in their many forms, closed-minded people with sticks up their asses, or anyone under the age of 18. The vile, base language and shocking, unholy sexual acts contained herein are not condoned by anyone with a lick of sense and should certainly not be reproduced without proper training and protection. The potty-mouthed and perpetually horny "heroine" (the term is used loosely) of this book does not resemble a normal, well-adjusted, or remotely believable person in any way, shape, or form. The author acknowledges that the characters in this book are shallow and two-dimensional; the plot is both ridiculous and insipid. She makes no apologies for any of it.

* Readers are strongly advised to wear latex gloves whilst reading to minimize contamination risks.

Free-spirited musician Letty Dillinger adheres to a strict, "no strings attached" policy when it comes to men. After a wild night of unabashed sex in a fancy hotel room, she never expects to see the adventurous stud she dubs "Shades" again. When her all-girl rock trio books a tour at the last minute as the opening act for their archenemies, Letty's shocked to discover she knows the competition's new lead singer. Intimately. Shades is no longer a one-night stand. Now he's the guy she has to one-up on stage every night for the sake of her career.

Sharing close quarters on a bus with her sexy nemesis and his bad-boy buddies puts Letty's Golden Rule to the test. On this tour, guitar strings aren't the only things being played. And when heartstrings are pulled too hard, they're bound to snap sooner or later.

Once you get used to the very different writing style its really good. Cute and f-ing rocking story. This writer is not afraid to stand out.

This is an incredably entertaining, unique book! Lettys vocabulary is so hilarious that it balances out the crude words. I absolutely loved this story, these characters, and the writing style!!!! I truly hope the author continues this story and tells Jinx and Tombs experience. Even though there was tension in the story line, it was very refreshing to read a well written, entertaining story without allllllll the angst. Waiting for more?!?!?!

Okay so first off, I have to say that the warning should totally be taken into consideration. This book is dirty, sexy, hilariously funny, and totally inappropriate for anyone who is even slightly offended by any of those things. Now, with that said, this book was freaking awesome!! Kendall Grey continues to make me fan girl over her books. I absolutely love her writing, and in this she holds nothing back. It was so fun to read!! With colorful language, and super fun and creative names for certain body parts and sex acts, I was so entertained. I instantly liked Letty, she was one super hot mess, but I loved her "don't give a sh*t" attitude. She doesn't hold back at all. She says what she is thinking and most of the time it is brash and hilarious. She is not a fluffy, girly girl. She is a hot rocker chick, who only has one goal in life. Music. She's up for a good time in the sack, or bathroom stall, or against a bus... but she doesn't want anything, especially a guy to get in the way of her making it big as a musician. She is also very level headed too. She may seem impulsive, crazy, inappropriate or any number of things, but this girl has got her head straight. I don't even know what else to say about her. She was so fun to read!! Now there's Shades!! OMG he is sex on a stick!! I was pretty much a puddle of goo. Even before knowing he was a rocker, he still was super sexy in my eyes. The first scene with Shades and Letty (aka Lucky to him) was super freaking hot and steamy. Like, have some ice cubes on hand steamy. And that was tame compared to some of the other sex scenes. He is a man who knows what he wants, how to get it, and get it when he wants it. He has no issues with exploring new things, and he was also kinda sweet too. Though, he hides that part pretty well most of the time. I was totally smitten with him right from the start and couldn't get enough! So basically, there is a story to this. Cherry Buzz Float, Letty's all girl band, goes on tour with Killer Dixon, all guy band and they hate each other. The thing is, Letty and Shades can't get enough of each other and it steams up this book. There is a lot of sex, so just know going into it, that's mostly what you are going to get. I did really love the underlying story though, and I liked most of the characters with the exception of Kate, who I kind of wanted to kick in the vag! Both bands are really intense about their music and all of them just want to make it big. They just need to learn to work together and not against each other. This was fabulous, sexy, trashy, fun, and I loved every second of it. Take it for what it is, a fun, awesome, erotic novel. I can't wait for the next book, Beats to get Jinx's story!! Bring on the smut Kendall!!

This chick got me at the warning. I had to read, Strings. I'm not sorry. I laughed, chuckled, giggled, blushed, and sweat through this book, barely able to put it down, and finished it in a day. The sex,oh god, just the foreplay, was some of the hottest I've read. She took me places I've never been before, and wouldn't care to go personally, but it had the desired effect. Just don't expect it to sound realistic or plausible. This was fantasy 7.0 where two people not even facing each other still somehow manage to French kiss. Suspend reality and let it play out. That's all I'm saying. This book is so raunchy, don't be surprised if you feel like taking a long shower and a swig of mouthwash when you're done.

I bought the book based on the warning label alone.  If you can't handle the warning, you will never be able to handle the book.  The characters are real - well as real as many of us imagine we could be - bold, crass, raunchy, lewd, self-indulgent, with no concept of what political correctness actually is.  There is so much in this book that made me smile and I laughed through most of the book.  So many great lines ("My boyfriend left me for Jesus", “Nah, I wanted to sodomize him”, "Holy anal mishaps, Batman", "presses his heat-seeking moisture missile against my cock holster" - I completely lost it), but there is an actual love story in there that is really touching.  All of the characters in the book play important roles in the growth and development of Letty personally.  It's written in a way that you don't even know it's happening as you read it.  The book was HOT and I absolutely LOVED it.  My friends and I laughed so hard there were tears streaming down my face.  Thanks for the fantastic ride with the rockers, and I anxiously await BEATS!

With it's kickass heroine and her raunchy romps with the sexy opposition, Strings is a book that will surely rock your face -- and your panties-- off. Holy. Crap. I don't even know where to begin with this book. Well for starters, take a good look at the disclaimer at the top of the synopsis. Take those statements seriously. If you can't handle balls-to-the-wall, scandalous, reeeeaaallly descriptive and raunchy dialogue/thoughts/sex scenes, then I can almost guarantee that Strings is not the book for you. That's okay. Buuuuut... if you can handle all the aforementioned crude, graphic, hardcore filth, shot through with an insane amount of humor, then CONGRATULATIONS!, because Strings just may be the book you you. Y'all know I love a good rockstar story, but how often do we get an unapologetic, unfiltered, purely badass rockstar chick? Letty was incredible. I love how she just goes after what she wants, and that she lives her life freely. She is passionate about her band and her music. She is wild and uninhibited. And by wild I mean, she picks up and has really hot sex with a really hot guy. And by uninhibited I mean this sex was jaw-dropping, intense, and will likely set your undies on fire. Yeah. And who can blame her with Shades. This sexy mofo is every rockstar-loving woman's wet dream. Hot. Intense. Fun. Willing to do WHATEVER Letty wants. Now, I'm not saying that I would bow down in worship at the alter of Shades (totally lying, I would), but let's just say that I would make some really hot, really sweaty music with him any day of the week. I had such an awesome time reading Strings. I laughed hard. I got extremely ahem... excited, by the naughtiness that transpired, and I truly enjoyed the story. This series promises a lot of good times ahead, and I cannot wait to hang with these rockers again in Beats and Nocturnes.

5 star review of Strings (Hard Rock Harlots #1) by Kendall Grey Audio Review: I know it is hard to believe but Kendall Grey is a new author to me and oh what an introduction ! The narrator Lessa Lamb was also new to me so I had no idea what a rode I was in for. I do not believe I have listened to another book quite like Strings. Letty and Shades story was sizzling. This was a raw, absolutely unfiltered story that was no hold bar at times. There were moments of humour as well as seriousness but throughout it all it is honest. This probably one of the most unique listens I have listened to and be assured I will be looking into the other books on the series as soon as I can.

This one was different, but in a good way. It was sexy, sassy, raunchy and very funny. I'd recommend it to anyone like a no-holds-barred type of story.

A great escape that kept me up until 2 in the morning. Loved it.  Funny, dirty, a bad ass female character. If you've read the warning and think that sounds interesting, You will absolutely love it.

I love Kendall Grey, she rocks. This book is smut-tastic. The characters are a group that I would enjoy being around, even if it was just for the music. I will read any and every book that Kendall writes even if it is just a phone book.

Wow, what a great author! This is the first Ive ever read of hers and I literally laughed my head off. The main character is totally off the hook her own person and the main male lead is super hot. This book is uber eroctic and not for the faint of heart. Would love to see this turn into a series, but this will always be a book and an author that will stay with me.

4.5 Hot Rockin' Stars I'm a huge, huge fan of Kendall Grey's writing. Did you know her Just Breathe trilogy has a HOT rock star? I already knew she can write awesome rockers. When I heard she was writing a new series with rocker chicks and dudes, I literally bounced off the wall with much anticipation! “Strap-on? Check. Dildo? Check. Lube? Check.” Did that get your attention? Sure, Strings is erotica...raunchy and lewd erotica. The warning in the summary should be taken seriously. If explicitly erotic rock star stories is your thing, then you are in for a treat! Meet 25 year-old Letty Dillinger. She's a force to be reckoned with. Letty represents all the poor unknowns trying to make it big in a cutthroat business. She believes wholeheartedly in her music and her band. I love her inner dialogue. The raw, roller-coaster of emotions she goes through really hits you in the guts. What I love most about her is that she's vulnerable, determined, and anyone can relate to her. “Much as I don't want to admit it, he's my sexual soul mate. No inhibitions. No fear. No boundaries.” “Are your strings ready to be plucked?” “By you? All day, every day. Pour some Letty on me.” Should I mention that Letty also has a raging libido? Oh, yes, she does! When “Shades” enters the picture, she really has no problem asking for what she wants. Shades is such a willing participant, too. Shades, good God! Hello...rocker with tats and piercings alert! I'm trying to think of what they didn't do. Well, just know they're both willing and open. All the kink, and it gets pretty kinky, in their sexual activities is icing on the cake! The heat generated by these two is why this story comes with a warning. You have been warned! “I want to be tied up in his strings forever and a day.” Deep down Strings is a humorous and passionate story of a group of rockers trying to catch a big break. It's about two like-minded, strong individuals connecting on a deep level and making beautiful music together. It's a wild ride, and it's only just getting started. I'm so looking forward to book #2, Beats! “Long live The Rock!”

DelphinaReadsTooMuch More than 1 year ago
Kendall pretty much said it all in the warning.  This book is complete smutty trash.  There characters are not like anyone you would know, nor like anyone you would want to know in real life.  The premise is silly at best.  The language and adult activities are rampant and gratuitous.   Basically... this book is made of awesome if you want an escape from real life.  If you read this after reading the warning, then this book is probably everything you want it to be.  If you are offended by this book it is because you in no way, shape, or form paid attention to the warning and I do not feel bad for you.  Not at all.

Pour some Letty on me. 5 GOLD STRINGS Notes and lyrics float around me. All of them connect to Shades. He’s taken hold of my heartstrings and won’t let go. Two strings are strummed. One perfect harmony dances in my heart. God, this moment couldn’t be more perfect. Being entangled in music, $ex, and love never felt so good. This is one of, if not THE most raunchy, dirty, filthy, hottest and hilariously naughty FAN-SQUIRTING-TABULOUS books I have ever had the immense pleasure & satisfaction of reading! I think I need a cigarette! Or a very, very cold shower! *fans self* Or my very own Shades!! OOOO, Shades, do you by any chance have a brother? *innocent smile* If you are expecting a "real life" type of adventure, then move along, move along, this is not the book you're looking for! IT IS EVERYTHING the warning says but at the same time it is oh so very much more!! I may have bought it for the warning - What? I was curious! You can't tease me with all of that and then expect me to promptly forget it all & walk away, now do you?! - but I stayed up all night reading it because of the intriguing storylines, the captivating storytelling, the *ahem* colorful language & descriptions that had me doubled-over laughing as much as it did turning green with envy and/or jealousy! Who knew that such a hilariously & epically colorful array of naughty euphemisms even existed! I had to keep the tissues beside me to wipe my eyes so that I could keep reading, I was laughing THAT hard & often!! And those characters? WOW! No one-dimensional characters here! They are complex, larger than life characters who you can’t help but like, love, cheer for, cheer against, outright dislike, etc. all while living & experiencing it all with & as Letty!! I'll admit that I didn't expect much from the story, but I have never been more thrilled to be wrong!! There IS a ton of story - enriched, captivating & hold-your-breath, laugh-out-load, moaning, groaning, drool-worthy story that made it impossible to put down! Even after I had reached The End I wasn't ready to say good-bye to Letty, who is hands up, pants down, Shades on & Shades off one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE CHARACTERS to live vicariously through, so I went back and read it again!! I surprised even myself because I didn't think it possible, but I loved it even more the second time! The amazingly talented Kendall Grey popped my rocker SPORNTACULAR Cherry Buzz Float, pulled my heartstrings and had me begging for more! I was NOT disappointed or left wanting in any way, shape or form! I ABSO-BANGING-LUTELY CANNOT wait to read the rest of the series!!!! Happily. Letty. After. Kate mumbles, “Light up the night with music.” “Shake the walls till they crumble to the ground,” I say. “Give the fans a reason to remember us,” Jinx adds softly. “And always leave them wanting more,” Jillian finishes.
