Title: Rock My World
Series: Mondez #1
Author: Lee Piper
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rock star romance
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
High school teacher Grace Thompson didn’t want to be a mentor. And she sure as hell didn’t want to mentor Levi Mondez.
They got off to a rocky start, but it wasn’t entirely her fault. How was she to know he was the lead singer of local rock band, Mondez? How was she to know he considered her short temper a turn on? And how was she to know her best friend, Riley, would fall for him?
If he wasn’t so damn gorgeous it might have made the whole mess easier to handle. If he didn’t transform Grace into a blazing furnace of need, and if he hadn’t confused the hell out of her already bruised heart, life might have turned out a heck of a lot differently. She was screwed.
My rating:4.5 stars
I have to say that I ended up really enjoying this book. I have really become a huge fan of rock star romances since reading both the Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott, as well as the Sinful Serenade series by Crystal Kaswell. It is so cool then to read in the author's bio below that Kylie Scott was her inspiration. I have a feeling that Lee Piper will now be another rock star romance author favorite of mine. I really liked the characters. Grace was pretty realistic to me, I could see a lot of my own attitudes and insecurities in her. I feel like she mostly reacted to situations in ways that were realistic. Now, I guessed the twist with her friend Riley pretty early on in the story, but I guess it wouldn't have made for as much drama/suspense if Grace had figured it out sooner. Levi was pretty sexy, and I definitely was into him. Loved his sense of humor, and just the way he was with Grace. I liked how they ended up going away together, and I like how it all worked out. I really love how Levi handled what should have been super good news at the end, as well as how Grace was ready to step back and let him have his dream. I look forward to reading more in this series, and hope each book will be with another band member, hopefully we will get to know Dom and Riley's story next.

Lee Piper is a lover of books. She often juggles reading seven novels at a time for the sheer joy of it. At the grand old age of five, Lee Piper decided to become an author, however found a limited market for her unicorn stories. So, high school English teacher it was.
At thirty-two, and grieving the loss of her second miscarriage, Lee Piper turned to novels—Kylie Scott to be precise—to escape the pain. This then inspired her to write Rock My World, the first in a four part contemporary romance series. Her debut novel not only reached the second round of the 2016 Emerald Award, but also became an Evernight Publishing bestseller within the first two weeks of publication.
Lee Piper lives in Adelaide, South Australia with her drummer husband, cheeky daughters, and one very crazy dog.
