After a lifetime of longing for a real family, Sarah Smith thought she’d finally found her home with rock star Abe Bellamy, even if she knew Abe didn’t love her the way she loved him. But their brief relationship, filled with tragedy and heartache, nearly destroyed her. Alone, emotions in turmoil, and already shaky self-esteem shattered, Sarah struggles to pick up the pieces in the wake of their divorce.
Abe knows he’s to blame for the end of his marriage. Caught in a web of painful memories, he pushed away the best thing in his life – the sexy, smart woman he adores – breaking them both in the process. Then fate throws him a second chance to get things right, to prove to Sarah that she means everything to him. Abe desperately wants that second chance at love…even if he knows he doesn’t deserve it.
But can he convince Sarah – now strong and independent without him – to risk her wounded heart one more time?
…angry. Always so angry. At fate. At God. At Sarah.
She’d left him, wanted to divorce him. Even then, he han’t realized he should be begging and crawling on his knees to make up for what he’d done, how he’d abandoned her.
Rock Wedding, like the books that came before (Noah’s most of all), is deeply emotional. The story tugged at my heartstrings, made me soo mad at Abe and terribly sad for Sarah. We already knew that these two had history. A past that ended very badly because of Abe’s anger issues and drug/alchool abuse. I don’t usually like to read second-chance romances, they’re not my cup of tea. I am more of a successful-at-first-try romance reader. However, Sarah and Abe’s story has grown into me since the first time Nalini wrote about them. Finally, here, I had the satisfaction to read the happy ending I was waiting for. *sighing-happily*
As usual, with Nalini’s novels, the reader can’t keep the distance from the story and its characters. They are always soo good! Creating whole, relatable, accaptivating characters is this author’s strenght, for sure. They draw you in, keeping you under, breathless. And you despar fot them, hope for them. Even if in this book some of the author’s choices are quite “simple”, in the end they are what I wanted to read to have the perfect ending (I can’t say more if I want to keep a spoiler-free review 😉 ).
Another plus is that this is not only Sarah and Abe’s story. The beautiful thing about this series is that we can also follow the other MCs because Nalini creates that feeling of a family that grows from book to book (very much like the Psy/Changeling series).
Unfortunately, this is the last novel in the Rock Kiss series and I am feeling sad and happy at the same time. Sad that this has ended, but happy for the new stories to come (Nalini has promised new contemporary romances…she has much to write with Gabriel’s brothers. Yay!). So, thanks Nalini for another beatiful read and… to new adventures!
The loneliness was orribile, but I guess I’d been burned so badly that I thought it was safer to keep my distance from people in general. Until you.
