It’s my job to play music, to make girls wet, and then to screw a select few of them. I’m a professional rocker. I’m rich, I’m famous, I’m one lucky son-of-a-bitch. I have everything - except control.

The industry owns me. And the only thing I have a minuscule grain of control with is women, but not that dominate, tie you up and gag you kind of control. No, I want to govern how I make them feel. I need them to feel like a goddess while I’m in them, and I love being able to control the fact that they’ll never really have me. Love is complicated. It is bullshit. And even if I thought I needed it, the rules of being a rocker won’t allow it.

Sex is all I need.

I don’t need love.

But for some reason I want her. For some reason I can’t get her out of my mind. And lately, every time I’m with any girl besides her it feels wrong.

I can practically have any woman I want, but I can’t have her. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass.

Sex was all I had.

And sometimes I thought maybe love was all I needed…with her.

My Review

If your like me, and have read Jag, then you’ve probably been waiting for Rush with very little patience.

I was soooooo excited when I finally got my hands on Rush! I like seriously shut myself out of my life in order to delve right into the rock world Stevie so vividly pens her rockers living in.

For me, Rush was a bit of an unexpected read. There were times in Jag that I was drawn to knowing more about Rush, and then other parts where I wanted to throttle him. So I found my self once again feeling these love/hate emotions toward Rush as I read his story.

Like the typical rocker, Rush too is a complete mess, using sex and drugs to cope with the god like status and complex he's grown accustom to with years spent in the lime light.  

Rush is a sex addict, honestly a complete man whore! But I still really kind of liked him…A LOT! 
I thought Rush’s character was a mishmash of good, selfish, assholery and most of all potential; Rush has soooo much potential to be the loving man a woman could want and need.

There were many times, despite his whoring and douchy ways that I actually found myself feeling sorry for the jerk wanting him to find a place of solace.

Can a girl he’s wanted for 6 years be his calm?

Can he change his ways in order to be the man she deserves?

Enter Jules….the game changer?

Rush has wanted his assistant manager Jules for years, spending time on the tours, quiet nights on the buses getting to know each other has lead to an all out attraction and want like he has never known. The only problem is the 'no dating' her client’s rule that Jules must follow. Oh and the fact that she is torn on Rush’s whoring ways, doubting he could ever be monogamous.

I really liked Jules for the most part. I liked how she was clearly torn on getting involved with Rush as being their assistant manager she was more than aware of his whoring ways. Doubting his ability to be the man she needs and can trust. Of course she would be torn, as assistant manager she has even played a part in getting him laid for pete's sake! Going so far in her job to even being involved in helping fans get into the famous “suck-n-fuck”.

But the times when we see her falter and give into the lust and emotions she clearly feels for Rush we are treated to some smokin’ hot as hades sex!!! Jesus these two are a hot mess when going at each other! Stevie’s ability to write a sex scene is ‘fan yourself’ good. 

That all being said I do need to mention that Jules also did annoy me, being so concerned about loosing her job, rather than being willing to risk it all for Rush pissed me off. I needed her to be 100% dedicated to our struggling to do right by her Rush!

What follows is a crazy roller coaster emotional read involving some many highs, lows and in-betweens that I just sat back and enjoyed the ride that is Rush. I did find this an emotional consuming read, with a few parts that had me stressing the fuck out, but in the end I’m once again given the ending I longed Rush to have. I did note a few parts where I felt it was repetitious to Jag and itself in some parts, as well as the characters can be a bit interchangeable, but that being said it is still a great read that had me consumed to see how the hell it was all going to play out.

About the Author

Oh, what to say? 

I love writing (obvious since I'm on here, right?) I don't have a specific genre - I just write whatever story manifests its self inside my brain.

Writing is like therapy. There is nothing else that I can lose myself in the way I can a book - the way a well written story can take you away from reality and leave you in a dazed state once you've finished... that is unbelievable. I can only hope that whoever reads my work will be sucked into the little world I've created on the pages.

Aside from writing, I love sloths and mythology. I kind of have a thing for vampires, because let's face it, something about the fact that they have to fight the urge to bite your neck and drain the life from you is rather sexy. I have an irrational fear of the zombie apocalypse. I honestly cannot imagine a more horrifying way to go than by being ripped to shreds by a mass of mumbling, decaying, and oozing corpses with clicking teeth. Ugh! I just shuddered typing it.

Now the boring basics: I grew up in the south listening to a ton of grunge rock (I'm sure if you read my books you'll be able to guess who my favorite bands are). I wanted to major in theatre and creative writing but my parents refused to let me. They told me those weren't "reliable professions". Reliable? I'd just rather do something I enjoy!

When I hit 30 I decided to start a bucket list and publishing a book was on the top (followed shortly by meeting a certain celebrity). Proud to report I've accomplished both. 

So, here I am with my first novel and working on the second one. The journey of writing Bound to the Fallen has been amazing and allowed me to meet many wonderful individuals.

I hope if you read my work that you will enjoy it. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick of all... it puts the reader in the mind of the writer (kind of creepy if you think about it). 

I hope you love my little world as much as I do.

Xx- Stevie J
