17454091 Title: Strings
Author: Kendall Grey
Series: Hard Rock Harlots
Publication Date: April 20th, 2013

Synopsis: 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.

Review: I found this mediocre but my biggest complaints from the book comes from the characters but I honestly didn’t expect much from this book. The author warns you when you start the characters are two dimensional and the story is ridiculous, which it is. I found myself skimming over quite a bit of what was going on. Letty’s behaviour didn’t bother me like it seemed to bother a lot. I would have enjoyed the series more if it was better written and more was put into it. Two stars is the most I can give a book like this, in fact that might be pushing it just a bit. It wasn’t an awful book but it’s not something I loved or would rec to people, or read further into this ‘series’. The rating of this book is based solely on the content of the book, not the behavior of the author.

Stars: ★★
Recommendation: Lol no. Don’t fucking bother.
