You think you know the story - rock star man whore who is finally tamed by the one perfect woman.  Right?

Well think again.  Nalini Singh has given us something very different with Rock Redemption.

I have been waiting for Noah's story since I started this series, just knowing that it was going to break my heart.

Kit is an up and coming Hollywood star, who has been in love with her friend Noah St John forever.

Noah is part of Schoolboy Choir, Kit's best friend.  He is an arsehole, a bastard of the worst kind.  He is a broken man, whoring away his demons. He broke my - and Kit's heart in the prologue.

This is a much grittier, darker book than the previous books in the series, however Ms Singh drew me right into the guts of the story.  It was an 
I rode the highest of highs and the lowest of lows with our characters.  I laughed, I cried.  It was angsty, heartbreaking.

Noah really is an unlikeable kind of bloke.  He is selfish, narcissistic and just downright cruel and nasty at times.  But somehow, Ms Singh has made the unlikable lovable.  It was a joy to watch him try to be a better man for Kit.  To make changes, to fight his demons.

At times, as Kit and Noah were trying to make a go of a relationship, it was like a hand constricting my heart.  It was painful,  heartbreaking to watch as they moved 2 steps forward and one step back.  But nobody ever said that the road to true love was easy - and do this pair prove that!  For a romance book, there is not a lot of romance for most of the read.  But I was riveted the whole time.

There was also a WTF moment - a big thing that I certainly hadn't seen coming!

I am really looking forward to Abe's story, which had a bit of set up in Rock Redemption.

Can't wait to read more.
