Re-Release Blitz & Review...Pandemic Sorrow Rocker Series by Stevie J. Cole


 A dirty-mouthed rocker is waiting for you.

Find out what it’s like backstage with sex-crazed rockers. Filled with angst, laughs, and some steam, Stevie J Cole’s Pandemic Sorrow Rocker sure to tickled your rocker fancy.


 Jag Steele.
Rock star. Womanizer. Addict. With endless nights of parties and screaming fans, Jag can have anything he wants. And he wants Roxy Slade, but Jag is the epitome of everything Roxy hates. His sexy smiles and determined advances do little to shake her. And then she sees a crack in his rock star armor, a broken past that she can't help but identify with. Is it enough to make her fall for this tortured rock star?
An addict and his high.
A girl and her shattered knight.
Could you fall for the bad boy you know will ultimately break you?


 Sex is all I need. I don’t need love.
I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind.
Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all




 When you don't want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.
I thought Jag Steele was arrogant and entitled, the standard dick of a rock star. Funny thing is, people aren't always who you expect them to be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag would hold any significance, but it did.

I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.

Some people may say our story was too screwed up to be a romance, but for two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly.

Stevie J. Cole lives deep in the woods of Alabama with her husband and two precious daughters. She studied Epidemiology concentrating on cancer research but has always had a passion for writing. Some of her stories will strip you bare, some will give you nightmares, but the one thing she can promise is that she will always give you stories that make you feel.

Raw. Gritty. Love.
Because sometimes characters need to be flawed.

P.S. Stevie's greatest fear is the impending zombie apocalypse. Think about it: swarming armies of decaying, oozing corpses stumbling around with clicking teeth, trying to eat your face. Nothing about that is good. NOTHING!


4.5 stars. 

Jagger Steele is the lead singer for popular rock band Pandemic Sorrow. He's a womanising man whore, the king of one night stands. Going from wanna-be to popular rock star playing sell out concerts, Jagger finds himself turning to drugs to help him cope. What starts out as something to get him through a show, soon becomes the one thing that everything else revolves around. He's not a very likeable guy when he's using. He's selfish, rude and an asshole but when he's clean he's so very loveable. He's frustrating because he is a nice guy and you can sympathise with him but at the same time you want to smack him round the head with a baseball bat til he sees sense. 

Roxy gets dragged to one of Pandemic Sorrow's concerts with her sister. She's the complete opposite of what Jagger is used to and he's determined to win her over. Roxy has her own demons that she's fighting and even though she knows it's not going to end well she can't seem to stay away. I really liked Roxy. She's stroppy, not a walk over and trying so desperately not to end up hurt. She's just a girl trying to get on with her life. She's very easy to relate to. Most of us have been where she is, attracted to the wrong kind of man but been unable to stay away.

This book deals with addiction. It deals with the highs and lows, the temptation to go back there, the relapses, the emotions, the guilt. It's not hearts and flowers but it is real and that was my favourite thing about this book. Stevie J Cole doesn't sugar coat or glamourise Jagger's addiction and I loved that.

Wow. These Pandemic Sorrow boys really do know how to make me feel torn. On one hand I really want to love them but on the other, they do insist on repeatedly messing everything up and that in turns makes me hate them....And then they do something that makes me go awwww and I'm back to thinking they're maybe not that bad. 

I found Rush a lot easier to like and connect with compared to the other characters. Even though he's a whore, rude and at times disgusting, I still loved him. Once you get past his rockstar persona and see how he really feels about Jules, he's surprisingly easy to like. 

Assistant manager of the group Jules has her work cut out trying to control the boys. Fighting her attraction towards Rush, she knows deep down that anything between them won't end well. I loved Jules. I completely got where she was coming from. 


4.5 stars. 

Finally we get a deeper insight into Roxy before, during and after Jax came into her life. Although we met Jax's book, this is more than just a rehash of Jags story. This book has a desperate, heartbreaking feel to it, and even though Roxy has been dealt blow after blow, this book shows you just how strong a woman she is. 

Poor Roxy really hasn't had the best upbringing and finding out more about her past helped understand why she reacts why she does and why she won't let anyone close to her except her sister. She comes across as a bitch at times but it's more about protecting herself rather than been bitchy just for the sake of it. 

I enjoyed this book. I've always liked Roxy and seeing things from her POV and getting into her head a bit more made me like her even more than before. The last few chapters killed me. The anxiety, the suspense of what Roxy and Jax was going to do next and the ongoing struggle with addiction was once again put across perfectly.
