Rocking Kin by Terri Anne Browning


From USA Today bestselling author Terri Anne Browning.

With one promise her life was changed…

Saying goodbye to my mother also meant saying goodbye to my life in Virginia. After reluctantly making a promise to my mom, I was California bound with the father who I haven’t seen since I was four years old. I was miserable living under the same roof as my step-monster and the two step-bitches from hell. My only saving grace? Lucy Thornton, daughter to Demon’s Wings’ drummer, Jesse Thornton. Without her friendship—and her odd rocker family taking me in as one of their own—I was sure I would have lost my mind after the first week.

A blast from her past…

I never thought I would see Jace St. Charles again. Honestly, after the way he’d broken my heart, I would have been just fine without having to see his face for the rest of my life. With Lucy’s close friendship with Harris Cutter, owner of the hottest new club in SoCal and Jace’s new boss, I was forced to see that damn face often. Forced to see the way every girl seemed to trip over themselves to get close to him.

A second chance?

Being tossed into one situation after another with Jace made it hard to fight the fact that I wasn’t as immune to him as I wanted to be. But, damn it, I was only human and he was hell bent on winning me back.

Rocking Kin is the third book in The Lucy & Harris Novella Series.

Review by Lisa Kane

McKinley "Kin" Montez' life is a little like Cinderella's. Her mom just died and she has to leave Virginia and the only family she's ever known to move to her father's house in California. Her mom was married to Carter Jacobsen and she was raised with her step siblings, Carter and Angie. They are her family, not Scott Montez who she hasn't seen in 13 years. But her mom made her promise that for her last year of high school she would live with her dad and get to know him. A promise is a promise and even if her heart is breaking, she will be 18 in a year so she can always go back. 

Scott's wife, Jillian is a vicious, vain bitch. She shows one face for the cameras and another behind them. She uses the paparazzi's interest in Kin to get her own daughters faces in the media. She looks for any excuse to make Kin miserable. Not long after she's started at her new school she's befriended by Lucy, a slightly pushy chick who seems to have taken her under her wing. But Kin's pretty shocked to find out that Lucy is none other than Jesse Thornton's adopted daughter. He's the drummer for Demon's Wings and Lucy is infamous around her school. 

Lucy takes Kin to First Bass, her friend Harris Cutter's new bar. But for Kin what starts out as a great night away from the step monster from hell, turns out to be even more of a nightmare. She sees Jace St. Charles, the singer for Tainted Knights and her ex. He dropped her like a hot potato when her mom was sick and she needed him most. He had a chance to move out to the West Coast for his band. He took it and never looked back. 

Jace St Charles had left me when I'd needed him the most. Not two days after I'd cried myself to sleep on his shoulder because I was scared of the thought of losing my mother, Jace had broken up with me. He was taking off with his band, Tainted Knights, and didn't want to be tied down. He'd broken my heart, and I hadn't tried to put it back together. 

Jace has had regrets since leaving Kin behind. He knew his big chance was staring him in the face but he would have to leave Kin. He chose the band after convincing himself that things between them would more than likely not work out anyway. He's buried his feelings for Kin and settles for groupies and one night stands. But once Kin is back in his life again, he knows they were meant to be together and he's not going to let her go again. 

This girl was my world and I'd fucked up royally when I'd walked away from her.

Kin has more than enough reasons to distrust Jace. He maybe pursuing her again, but he would just end up leaving her again, once the next big offer comes in. But he is relentless and she is lonely. 

If anything it just made my own aching heart ache all the more. I couldn't even begin to guess why he would still care after so many months had passed without so much as a word from him. He hadn't tried to keep up with what was going on in my life. 

Meanwhile, Harris and Lucy's complicated relationship gets even more complicated. 

While we don't get many answers to what is going on with Lucy and Harris (we will just have to wait for the last book of their series to release) Kin and Jace battle and love their way through this story. While I couldn't forgive Jace for abandoning Kin when she needed him most and never looking back, they are both young and will make mistakes. This is a great second chance at love story about forgiveness and friendship and loyalty. 

I had the girl I loved. I had my family, friends and career. Nothing else mattered.
