Rock & Release by Riley Edgewood - BLOG TOUR

Rock & Release by Riley Edgewood
Publication date: January 5th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Formerly released as a three-act serial, Rock & Release contains all three acts (VIP, Starstruck, & Show Stopper) together in one complete novel.

Cassidy Evans is looking for an escape over her college summer break. And when one night with a few too many martinis leads her to sexy guitarist, Gage Logan, she may have found exactly what she needs.

He’s hot and he’s sweet, and in the bedroom he’s enough to make Cassidy forget her own name. Multiple times. But as her heart opens to Gage, feelings she’s been trying to avoid slip through, too. Regret over her rocky relationship with her parents. Pain from her brother’s recent death. Guilt over a fallout with her best friend… As much as she craves Gage, she can’t unlock her heart the way she feels he deserves.

Enter Luca James, international rock star and lead singer for Gold Rush Standard. Cassidy can’t stand his music. She can’t stand his arrogance. And, when he sets his sights on more than the drinks she serves him, she especially can’t stand how she’s drawn to his no-strings-attached flirting.

Soon Cassidy will have to make a choice: ignore her heart and go after the carefree life she covets, or stand strong to face a bittersweet reality.

Either way, she risks losing everything she truly wants.


Rock & Release was so fun! I actually liked this New Adult book! I love that both of Cassidy's love interests are musicians because in my imaginary world, I'm totally with someone famous! I really liked Cassidy overall and I can definitely relate to her and how much she runs away from life all of the time. I liked that I got to read all three parts to this book because I was definitely hooked and did not want to stop reading! Some of the story was predictable but still very enjoyable and I just really liked the music aspect and the idea of working at a bar/concert venue for the Summer. Cassidy was a little annoying at times because she was self-absorbed but I liked seeing her grow and change and making new decisions with her life. I would've also liked to have seem Gage have more of a storyline with his music and learn more about that side of him...maybe another spinoff?! I think this book is perfect to read now as Summer is coming up and I'm super excited that Riley Edgewood has another spinoff coming out called Surf & Surrender! I'm not sure how I'll feel reading about Quinn (who is Cassidy's roommate in college) but I'm excited to at least try it.

Rating: 3.5/5
