Title: Rocked by Grace

Author: M.J. Schiller

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rockstar Romance

Book Blurb:

When videos hit the Internet of rock star Zane Sanders and a random fan performing what he says is a spontaneous dance, no one believes it’s unrehearsed in this sizzling romance from bestselling author M.J. Schiller.

Zane Sanders, lead singer of Just Short of Chaos, surprised everyone, including himself, when he plucked a fan out of the audience at one of his concerts.

I don’t know what possessed me to do it. I’d never done anything like that before. But something about Grace drew me to her. And within minutes of pulling her on stage, I knew I’d made one of the best decisions of my life. Since our drummer Devin’s overdose, I’d felt dead inside. Perhaps for even longer than that. But Grace was fun, sexy—and as I would discover later—good and selfless. And an irresistible magic surrounded us that made me feel alive again.

That is, until I blew it. In classic Zane style. Funny thing is, when I first got Grace up on stage, I had no idea what to do with her. Now I have no idea what I’ll do without her.

Grace Prescott was living out every girl’s fantasy.

Only thing is, fantasies ended, and I realized pretty quickly that I didn’t want this one to stop. Zane had a magnetism about him that was more than mere charisma. That was evident the moment I—the girl who normally had to be dragged out onto the dance floor—practically became a pole dancer in his arms. Then it happened. The moment everyone kept referring to as “The Kiss.” But it was all part of the show, right? It didn’t matter that Zane made more than my feet move. He stirred up feelings that scared the crap out of me. The depth of his sadness called out to me even more than his unbelievable sex appeal, and that was saying something.

But it could never work between us. He may have come from a small town like me, but he was all rock star now and totally out of my league. I was a flower shop owner, not his saving Grace.

Are some actions beyond forgiveness or will he be rocked by Grace?

My Review:

A rockstar plucks a woman out of the crowd during a concert but won’t he be shocked when his heart discovers a love he never expected. Rockstar Zane Sanders is the lead singer of one of the hottest bands in the world, yet something is missing. He’s living life by rote, that is until he meets Grace. In classic rockstar style, he pulls her onto the stage, not knowing it would change his life. Being with Grace makes Zane feel alive, more alive than he’s ever felt. Grace is everything good in the world, and before he knows what hit him, love jumpstarts his heart. When life gets in the way, reality comes crashing down. Can a rockstar and a small-town woman find true love and not some fantasy? Can love bring Zane to his knees?

Rocked by Grace is an incredible rockstar romance I couldn’t stop reading. First of all, the premise is relatable. Every single woman in the world secretly fantasizes about being pulled out of a crowd and onto the stage with a famous rockstar. Then there’s the descriptive narration. From the beginning, I was sucked right in by Zane’s POV. Both his and Grace’s POVs are as deep as the Pacific, which allows the reader to connect with the main characters. At first, Grace and Zane are from different universes (one a rockstar and the other a regular woman from a small town) but the more they’re together, the more their universes align. The romance is insta-attraction leading to falling in love. I adored their love story. There’s so much emotion, so much to overcome, it had me whipping through the pages. M.J. Schiller is a bonafide romance author who knows how to write romance. Rocked by Grace is an irresistible read, one with all the feels. If you love rockstar romance, you’ll want to read Rocked by Grace. This is my first book by M.J. Schiller but it won’t be my last. She’s quickly cemented herself as one of my new favorites. Highly recommend!

Wow! I am truly humbled by this review! I thank you, and Zane and Grace thank you. Perhaps your kind words will convince someone to read their story, and without readers, books are just words on a page. Readers breathe life into characters. I am so grateful for people like you who encourage writers and help promote their work. Thank you!
