Product description

Product Description

Sex is all I need. I don’t need love.
I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind.
Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all

Well Stevie has done it again..made me fall for a dirty talking, manwhore of a Rock Star and I'm not even sorry! lol I loved reading Jag and couldn't wait for Rush and it did not disappoint!! Rush is not dark like Jag but he definitely had his own issues to deal with...the main one being Jules, an employee of their Management, who he is NOT allowed to go near due to his contract!
Rush is the typical manwhore rock star, sleeps with all the fans, loses himself in sex because he is living the life he is expected to but is filling a gap for what or who he really wants. He has liked Jules for the last six years and after finally one night together he realises the strong feelings he has for her. Only problem being, Jules finds him disgusting and doesn't want to lose her job so does her best to ignore him and her feelings for him.
I loved this book, had me hooked apart from stupid RL getting in the way! lol It was great having more of the other band mates in it and it also showed how Jag's problem affected Rush and how him and Jules tried to help him and deal with his addiction.
This is by no means a fairy tale read, it is real with lots of emotions, lots of sex and lots of swearing! There are many bumps in the road but it does show a softer side to Rush too! I loved the whole book!! Oh and the extra scene at the end... HOT HOT HOT!!!
Another brilliant book from Stevie and I can't wait for the next!!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars for Rush and Jules 22 June 2017

Rush Wilder's experiences with fame were quite similar to Jag's. The easy access to drugs, the constant supply of women. It was all overwhelming and those higher up in the industry only fuel that flame of destruction to maintain their control over the band.

Where Jag's addiction numbed his pain, Rush's addictions allied him to feel and Jules was the one that could help him do that without of all the synthetic assistance or warm bodies kneeling at his feet. But Jules was off limits. Her job was to basically be heir handler. She was present to see first hand the freedoms they were afforded. She may. It have liked it, but it was her job to ensure they had what ever they wanted to keep them happy and productive so the label could bank on their talent.

Rush and Jules was a forbidden love that took years to develop and it was Rush to go after what he wanted and she sure as hell didn't make it easy on him. I couldn't blame her. I don't know that I could overlook his reputation. She was certainly braver to even consider it.

Now, while I thoroughly enjoyed the second book in the series I felt like it was missing something. Having just finished it, not even an hour ago...I couldn't tell you anything about Rush other than he was the bassist, enjoyed his recreational drug use and earned his reputation as a man-whore. Other than being Jag's best friend since childhood, I know nothing about who he was before Pandemic Sorrow's fame nor anything about his family. The same goes for Jules. She loved her job and tried like hell not to have anything to do with Rush, but aside from that I couldn't tell you much of her personal life.

So far the theme in the series is holding strong. Stevie J Cole has done an amazing job of using Pandemic Sorrow's fame to show the dark side of celebrity life. Most rock star romances just shine a light of the fun side of everything while the characters relish in bright lights with stars in their eyes. I like my stories to not just be an escape to fantasy. Sometimes a dose of reality makes the story that much more real. So far, that's what this series has been for me.

Just like the characters in this book, people, no matter their status, are just people. They feel pain. They hide pain and sometimes they, need to be loved. It takes a much stronger person to love those most vulnerable. And these characters may be famous rockstars, but they have been two of the most vulnerable I have ever come across.

This is my first Stevie J. Cole. I can definitely say that I will be looking for / reading more of her work. This is the story of Rush Wilder, the bassist for major rock group Pandemic Sorrow. Yet this book is so much more than just Rush's story. In both big and small ways this book delves into the lives of all the members of the band.

This story is told strictly from Rush's point of view. This is the first book that I've that's been told completely from the Hero's point of view and it was so much fun to read.
The romance between Rush and Jules was explosive to read (very hot). He knows that their is something "different" about her - something "special" but it takes me him a while to act on it - to fully understand what it all means.
I am just an average everyday kind of girl - so I don't pretend to understand the inner workings of the music industry. That said the only down side to this whole book was the character of James. I thought the music exec seemed a little over the top for me. I'm sure that the music industry has its fair share of sharks and scum bags so maybe he was right now......but just felt a little over board to me.
Over all this is a great book and I totally recommend it :)

I can't say enough about this book and this series. Stevie nails the pain and suffering of addiction, any addiction. The Pandemic Sorrow guys all have their own levels of addiction and we saw Jag go through the worst of his in the first book. Now Rush, he has feelings for a woman that is off limits to him and his way of coping is to stick himself into any woman, any orifice, anytime and anywhere. This isn't working as well as he had hoped. He also throws in a wide assortment of drugs and booze. Jules is always in his mind and always around too, since she works for the label. Eventually a huge scare puts the fear of losing Jules in perspective for Rush and he takes the bull by the horns and man's up to his feelings. I hate their manager and hope they dump in when the contract expires. Maybe the next book??? The sex is off the charts HOT and plentiful, thanks SJ. Just read the book... it is brilliant. Don't forget to read Jag too as it is the first and also a great story. 5 stars.... no doubt.

“Funny that when you can’t have the one thing you really want, you’ll bury that desire in anything else that can grant your mind – your heart – some type of distraction. I was addicted to being needed…”

Rush Wilder is the bass player for Pandemic Sorrow, THE hottest rock band out there. It doesn’t take long to realize Rush is a sleaze of the highest magnitude. And his outlook on it is very interesting. He tells you straight out, echoing his manager’s mantra, that it’s his JOB as a rock god to make music, screw fans, and do drugs. And there are plenty of examples of that in this book to make you see just how seriously he’s taken this to heart. The good thing about this story is that Rush is not totally one dimensional – he thinks, he feels, he questions. Even though Pandemic Sorrow is at the top of the celebrity game, things are beginning to unravel like the threads of an unfinished garment. Rush picks at those threads until his world almost crumbles away completely, but in doing so, he makes himself whole.

Jules has been the tour manager for Pandemic Sorrow for six years, putting up with all the sex, drugs and general nastiness of life on the road. She gave into Rush.. finally, once, and has regretted it ever since. She pushes him away, scared to trust because she knows exactly what he’s like. But she only sees the outside. Rush explains it this way: “It was fu*&ing torture having to be around her all the time, knowing damn well I couldn’t have her the way I wanted. Sometimes I thought that was where the problem lay, in that tiny detail. I wanted something I couldn’t have so I tried finding it anywhere I could.” As Rush and Jules begin to realize their attraction is something that can’t be denied, other things begin to come apart in their world. Both of them begin to question what’s happening around them but feel helpless to do anything about it. They’ve lost control and it’s only when reality smacks them both in the face, again and again, each time getting more and more serious until it’s life and death times two, that they face the emotions that are locked away behind the walls they’ve both erected to cope with life in the rock and roll world.

This series has one of the baddest villains I’ve read in a long time. James Cooper is the band’s record label manager and promoter. He is evil incarnate, destroying the lives of four individuals for the glory of the band and the money it makes him. He manipulates and twists reality to suit his own purpose, Each time he makes an appearance in the book I almost expected him to have red eyes and demon horns with the smell of sulpher coming off his body. Rush bucks him at every possible turn, chafing under the rules and control this man exerts over him and Jules, but it’s never enough to get in a few punches. When a chance comes to finally break loose a little from the noose around their necks, the guys think they’ve finally won a small victory over James. But the man is like a hydra, cut off one head and another grows in its place, more evil than the first. So we know he’ll be back and we can only imagine the depths of depravity he will sink to in the next book.

It would be so easy to start reading this book and get caught up in the sex and drugs and see nothing else. Because there is a lot of it. The characterization of the band members and the crazy things they do is over the top, but there’s a reason and a damn good story behind it all. It’s important to really delve into Rush’s thought processes throughout the book, because there’s so much more to him than what he likes to show the world. Yes, he’s bought into the rock god persona, but we get to see the man behind all that as he grows to realize what it is that he needs. He sums it up this way: “Looking back I think life has ways of humbling you. It has its moments that knock your feet out from under you, suck the breath out of you, and force you to realize what’s important. …. when you find that person that makes all other aspirations in your life seem meaningless, you can’t let them get away.” And therein lies the key to all that is Rush Wilder.

This was a really great book. In the first book in the Pandemic Sorrow's series, Jag is addicted to drugs and it helps numb him from all of his problems. Rush is addicted to sex and all the women wanting him. He feels that he needs to have some control in life. He has really only wanted one woman and that was Jules and he's not allowed to date anyone that works for the music company. They hooked up once and she let him know that she thought he was dirty.

Rush is a good guy but he worries so much about what others think or letting his guard down. Also, he and the others know that what Jag is doing to himself with the drugs can be hurtful but they don't want to step in his way. He comes across as a jerk at times or unfeeling but he does feel and he does care. He wants people to want him or need him and he feels some control and want when he has sex. It's his escape. His want and need for Jules is consuming but he's so scared of being turned down or his pride being hurt.

Jules sees and experiences all the guys and what they do and has been doing it for 6 years. She sees them have sex and screw around all the time. They do drugs and they make terrible decisions and she's supposed to clean it all up if something goes wrong. She's seen and set up all the people they have had sex with. She's had to watch countless women come and go.

Definitely worth the read.
