My American Dream just shattered and they think I did it on purpose. They have sentenced me to hell by sending me back to the last place I want to be. They have people watching me twenty-four-seven. They want the truth about how my band mates died, and they’re going to get it, no matter what.
No matter how hard I fight. No matter how many times I deny it. No matter what it takes, the truth is going to catch up with me.
I am Rowan Kyle Saber. I am RK. I am Rock. Ex-lead-singer for Son of a Jack. Ex-addict, ex-friend, ex-boyfriend, ex-brother… and presently in denial.
Welcome to Grand Lake, Colorado, where all my nightmares started. Welcome to the past. Welcome to the present. Welcome to RK’s fucked up life.
The only thing holding me together is her. But even that might be a lie.

My mind is blown! Completely, utterly blown. Rock is even more twisted than Huss’ other stories, and I was riveted to my kindle today, unable to stop reading until I got to the bottom of all the mysteries.

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Huss definitely blew me away with this story! Until the very end, I had no idea what was going on, or what would happen next, and I was just as anxious as Rock was to figure things out. There was so much heartache and darkness, but at the same time, RK was so driven. He was filled with red-hot anger at the beginning, and he really didn’t understand what was going on. And I didn’t either. However, I was immediately drawn into the story, and I not only wanted, but needed to figure things out alongside RK. Even if I’m used to Huss’ twists and crazy turns, I don’t think I was fully prepared for the ones that happened here.

And I have to say that the summary for Rock is perfect! It sets the tone for the story, and it gives you just enough to know it’s going to be extremely juicy, and that you have to read it. And that there is both past and present, and that RK has had more than a few pains and troubles in his life. I am not going to say much more, because I don’t want to spoil a single little thing. I do have to tell you that you should pick this up, though, it’s a fantastic story with a good pace, characters to love (and some to hate on!) and so many things going on at the same time you will be dizzy before you finish reading.

Written in first person point of view from RK’s perspective, past tense to separate what happened in the past, and present tense to make sure we experience everything at the same time as he does, with the same hopes, dreams, nightmares, expectations and fears to share the present. There are some truly amazing dialogues as well, and Rock is exactly my kind of dark, mysterious romance.

Fave Quotes - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I knew the way – hell, she knew the way too. And when the small waterfall came into view, the moon making the water in the pool shimmer silver, we both got sweaty hands and chills up our spines.

I just stare at her. Because I don’t even know this girl. I have no clue who she is. The girl standing in front of me is not Missy’s sister. She’s Melanie, but she’s some Mel I’ve never met before.
