This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
He's a rock star with a secret, she's a pop princess with a painful past - can their forbidden romance survive, or will their lies destroy them both?
I've earned my bad reputation.
A few years ago, I was New York City's hottest classical music prodigy. But I wanted something else, something more. So I chased my real dream, and now... I'm rock royalty. Dax Hughes, lead guitarist of Nothing but Trouble. But to my family and former Juilliard classmates, I'm an outcast. A misfit. A rebel.
They're not entirely wrong. I don't give a damn what other people think, and I'm all for breaking the rules... except when it comes to our new opening act, Verity Moore.
Rock gods don't tour with pop princesses.
It's not personal. Actually, under that fallen diva reputation, Verity's incredibly talented. And her fiery redheaded personality is... intriguing. But I'm convinced the skeletons in Verity's closet are as scandalous as my own, and when we're not sparring, she has a way of drawing out all those secrets I'm determined to keep hidden.
Yeah. Verity Moore is definitely off-limits . . .But since when do I give a damn about the rules?

The Nothing but Trouble series:Rock KingRock LegendRock Rebel
I’m not one that generally falls for rocker books but there’s been a few! Rock Rebel is a fantastic story! I seriously adored Verity Moore. She reminds me so much of myself as a teenager. I remember going hog wild with a bit of freedom. This is what happens for Verity. She’s been managed for years by her mom. Her mom has some short reigns on her. Now here we are, of age, and Verity is ready for a taste of freedom. She makes some mistake and has some good ol’ wild times. Now she’s on track… she’s getting her life back together… she’s ready to sign and have a manager that only manages her career, not her life.
Dax Hughes is fabulous! He’s totally a strong character. A child prodigy who’s the lead guitarist for a major band, Nothing But Trouble. Dax had his heart broken and so closed that part of himself off. He doesn’t love. He doesn’t trust. He doesn’t date women in the music industry. But… there’s Verity. Young and vibrant with insane chemistry. I fell head over heels watching Dax fall!
Tara Leigh shows us what it’s like to fall in love when you have closed yourself off… what it’s like to learn to trust and to open up again. Verity and Dax are like apples and cinnamon… fantastic and beautiful together but everything goes to another level when they combine. Leigh’s writing flows. It’s beautiful and warmed my heart. The steady build up of the story and the relationship. The sexual tension between these two was vibrant… was strong… real.
I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I loved Tara Leigh. She's one of my new favorite authors of the year. I loved getting to know her rock gods. Rock Rebel is no exception to that love. I think this might be my favorite book so far in this series. I loved how relatable these characters are. I love how I fell so incredibly hard for Dax and Verity.
My heart broke for these two at times. They have both been through so much. Fame isn't all we think it might be. Especially when things don't go the way we hope. Verity is trying to get back on track. And with the help of Travis, that might be possible. I loved the vulnerability between these two. I loved watching them fall. I loved seeing them become what they want.
Please check out this amazing story. I promise you will not be disappointed.
4.5 stars Rock Rebel is the 3rd book in this author’s Nothing but Trouble rockstar series and this is Dax’s story. Based off the blurb, I mistakenly assumed that story would be predictable, but there were so many twists and turns that it was anything but. I found myself completely shocked by some of the revelations revealed throughout the book.
Dax is the classically trained lead guitarist of NbT who is an alpha hero, but with a bit of vulnerability as his heart has been trampled on in the past and he fears getting involved with anyone in the industry. I couldn’t help, but love him. He was so kind, loving, and supportive of Verity. Verity is strong character, a survivor. She is trying to breakaway from her past as a child star with a ruined reputation and make it in the music world based off her own talent and merits. Both characters brought out the good in each other and the heat between the two of them was palpable. The each had their strengths and their flaws and this made them feel more relatable, likable. I enjoyed getting to read more about the characters from the previous books - especially Piper and I am hoping that Jett gets his own book. I also loved the extended epilogue.
The author does touch upon the hot topic of the #metoo movement and it is evident that she did her research. She did a great job of addressing it in a nonjudgmental, respectful manner. Rock Rebel was an entertaining read with well-developed likable characters that moved at a good pace and had surprising revelations as well as a HEA with no cliffhanger. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
