What happens when a rock star with no plans of settling down finds out he has a teenage daughter, his manager is embezzling from him, and the woman he’s hired to design his tour wardrobe is breathing fire? Come along for the snarky, emotional, and insanely sexy ride as Jillian and Johnny get caught up in a storm that just might be bigger than both of them.

Jillian Braden’s quick, creative thinking and fierce determination have helped her singlehandedly build a fashion empire. She doesn’t mince words and demands respect, but beneath all that armor, she carries the Braden curse of a soft heart. But that soft heart isn’t looking to start a family and doesn’t know the first thing about mollycoddling. When famed rock star Johnny Bad hires her to design his tour wardrobe and then postpones it at the last minute for the third time, she’s had enough. Jillian is determined to set him straight, but she isn’t at all prepared for what she finds or for the type of help Johnny Bad really needs.


Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and an abundance of swoon-worthy moments make this sexy new standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster unputdownable. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and happily ever afters guaranteed to leave you breathlessly in love with the fiercely loyal and wickedly naughty characters in the Love in Bloom series. All Love in Bloom books are written to stand alone or be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right in and enjoy the ride!

I'm back! And I have another Melissa Foster review for you. And since I have read/reviewed most of Melissa's books (I think I'm missing a couple), I will once again focus on an element of Rocked by Love that stood out to me. As usual, I friggin' loved this book. From the characters to the story to the sizzling hot sex scenes between Jillian and Johnny, this one had everything I love when it comes to Melissa's books. Seriously, I devoured it in record time. One element in particular stood out the most to me and that was Jillian's decision that she does not want to settle down and have kids. Not all, but most of Melissa's heroines cannot resist an adorable baby. Whether it is one of their family members or a friend's child, the majority of the women in Melissa's world go bonkers for it. Jillian does the exact opposite. And that is refreshing to see in a romance nowadays. She is brutally honest and upfront with that decision to everyone in her life, most importantly to Johnny. While those feeling's may change in the future, its still a welcomed change in my eyes. I loved that about her and about this book.
