Picking up the pieces and starting again in the US, Emma enrols in college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do what she wants and live how she chooses, and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.
That is, until Scott Mason walks on stage…
Intense bad boy Scott is the lead singer of a popular local rock band. A ladies’ man and Ashley’s long-time friend, Scott holds an instant fascination for Emma — she finds herself drawn to him, even though he represents everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette — light it, use it, and lose it.
For her cousin’s sake, Emma makes an effort to get along with Scott, but she soon discovers that there is more to him than first appears, making him even more dangerous in her eyes. Behind the façade of friendship, jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurity fester — an internal battle rages as she fights her attraction and does everything she can to stop history from repeating itself.
One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.

Take one badass tattooed rocker, add a British beauty with major daddy issues and stir in a heaping spoonful of sexual tension. You’ll find yourself with one delicious love story. Rocked Under kept me up reading well into the night! It’s amazing how one more page can turn into one more chapter and eventual you find yourself staring at the clock thinking, “Might as well finish this sucker!” Was it worth it? Hell yeah it was!
Meet Emma – A gorgeous 19 year old British girl who has recently moved to the good ol’ USA with the hopes of leaving her past exactly where it should be…in the past. After witnessing the end of her parents marriage and the destruction of her mother’s heart, Emma is determined to guard her own at all costs.
Scott Mason is gorgeous with a capital “G”. He’s what ever girl wants and exactly what Emma is hoping to avoid. Scott is the commitment-phobe, tattooed lead singer of local band, From Under.
Scott and Emma have an obvious connection right from the start. The chemistry is impossible to deny. That doesn’t mean Emma won’t try…over and over again. She spends most of the book spouting out crap about being fine and plastering fake smiles on her face while internally berating herself for having any type of feelings for Mr. Man-Whore.
It got to the point where I wanted to reach through the book and flick her in between the eyes while simultaneously kicking him right in the baby maker. I get that he has commitment issues, but honestly if you have such strong feelings for someone, groping other women and shoving your tongue down their throats in public should probably go on the back burner for a while. No wonder Emma had a hard time believing she could be anything more than another notch on his bed post.
I do have to give it to Scott in the friendship department. He really did make a great friend. He looked out for Emma. His fist met many a face in order to protect her when she made some pretty shitty choices. His heart was in the right place even if his little head wasn’t…
I can NOT wait to read the next book in this series. Waiting until August might literally kill me. I want to know what happens next with these two crazy kids! Cora Hawkes kept me hanging on by a thread till the very end. I NEED to know if these two can make a relationship work.
If you love tattooed badass guys as much as I do, read this book! It might make you want to scream. You’ll probably have to walk away a time or two out of sheer frustration, but in the end it’ll be worth it. I promise!
AND NOW FOR AN EXCERPT! :)
His eyes widened and he looked up at the sky for a moment. “Why do you ask?” His voice was quiet.
“Ash told me that you’ve never had a girlfriend.” Why was I talking about this with him?
He sighed before looking back down at me. “She told you that, but what she was really doing was warning you off me.” He was looking at me seriously now.
“No,” I lied, “she just told me.” I looked away.
“I don’t believe you, but I can understand her wanting to protect you, especially from me.” He shook his head. His tone had been serious but then he smiled softly at me.
I was momentarily stunned by him.
“You still haven’t answered my question,” I reminded him gently.
“I…I’m not into relationships,” he shrugged as if it was nothing, but I knew he was lying.
“So, basically, you sleep around because you can get away with it and you think that having a girlfriend would hold you back and you’d get bored.”
Very briefly, I saw his face crease with pain, but it happened so fast that I could have imagined it.
“Why? Were you thinking of applying for the position?” His grin was cheeky as he steered our conversation back onto safer ground.
I blushed. If only he knew how much I thought about him.
“Wow, is that a blush?” He looked surprised and then laughed loudly.
“Shut up!” I cringed as I punched his shoulder, my face burning hotter. “And no, I wasn’t applying for anything, I’m seeing Adam, remember?
I’m sort of taken,” I said proudly, holding my head high.
He sobered then and looked up again at the sky.
“He’s lucky,” I thought I heard him say under his breath.
“I said, ‘he’s lucky’. But if he treats you bad, he’s going to turn unlucky real quick.” He looked serious.
