Falling in love isn't always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go...

Picking up the pieces and starting again in the US, Emma enrols in college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do what she wants and live how she chooses, and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.

That is, until Scott Mason walks on stage...

Intense bad boy Scott is the lead singer of a popular local rock band. A ladies’ man and Ashley's long-time friend, Scott holds an instant fascination for Emma — she finds herself drawn to him, even though he represents everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette — light it, use it, and lose it. 

For her cousin's sake, Emma makes an effort to get along with Scott, but she soon discovers that there is more to him than first appears, making him even more dangerous in her eyes. Behind the façade of friendship, jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurity fester — an internal battle rages as she fights her attraction and does everything she can to stop history from repeating itself.

One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.

Well, this was a roller-coaster of emotions. The fear of being hurt by someone you love, because you've been hurt by your parents, and the same time this extraordinary strong impulse toward that person? Woah. This book captivate this feeling to perfection.

Emma was a cool character. She is British and she moves to US with her mother to get away from her past. A new beginning. Until she meets this gorgeous rock star Scott. She is desperately trying to leave her past behind, but no matter what, it keeps coming after her.

Scott. Well, aside his man-whore behaviour, the guy is actually very deep. And he shows it, I saw it, just Emma didn't. Which I thought was hilarious and disturbing and frustrating. I couldn't really put my finger on it. I couldn't understand if she pissed me off because she just did or because she reminded me of me so much that I didn't know how to deal with it. Uh huh.

This book was hot. Tough, there is a long wait for that. But it was definitely worth it ;)

Rocked Under is an incredible book captivating a journey of a girl to let go of her fears and accept the love she deserves. On top of that, the rock band concerts with the leading singer being hotter than hell, yeah, that pretty much sums it up :) So, if you are searching for a New Adult book filled with emotions, struggle and a bit of a drama, then Rocked Under is the perfect book for you!

There were no certainties when it came to love, no definites, just a lot of maybes and I would be waiting for the day it ended. The thought of being heartbroken, the actual feeling of my emotions being so out of my control was my darkest demon. I didn't want to end up like my mum. I wanted to avoid it at all costs, but what if the cost is unhappiness anyway?
