Publisher's Summary

From bedroom performances to center stage, Memphis Black's dreams have come true.

Together with his band mates - Finn, River, and Billy B - he takes some time for fun in the sun in Miami while gathering inspiration to finish their first full-length album. Some down time before hitting the road to tour the country, spreading their kind of rock like an STD.

Tallia Priest, a preacher's daughter, grew up next door to Madison Black, her polar opposite and very best friend. Tallia has harbored a crush on Madison's older brother, Memphis, for a lifetime.

A boy like him would never notice a girl like her, yet he did...once.

After a tough freshman year of college, Madison invites Tallia to join her in Miami for a much needed break. Madison fails to mention they will be staying with "Steel Total Destruction".

When Tallia arrives, there is no way for a stunned Memphis to miss the transformation of the once awkward, innocent girl next door.

Forbidden desires must be hidden, lines cannot be blurred, and no one can ever know.

Will the heat in Miami tempt them even further? Will buried secrets destroy lives? Can a broken heart ever be mended?

It's all fun and games until someone gets rocked.

Bang Bang!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely!! It was funny, hot, sexy, and the storyline was great.

What did you like best about this story?

It kept me on my toes. I never knew what Memphis was going to say next. Kai Kennicot and Wen Ross did an amazing job as usual bringing this story to life.

Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?

I loved Memphis and Tallia. They're chemistry was undeniable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the attraction between Memphis and Tallia. Even though Tallia tried hard to deny her feelings for Memphis it was clear that they should be together.

Any additional comments?

I love MJ Fileds' books. She is one of my go to authors and I am never disappointed with a anything she writes. Her characters are very entertaining to say the least. They are so unpredictable and funny at times, but all are full of heart and the love they share is nothing but beautiful.

Great narration, but the story wasn't for me

Overall 2.5 stars Performance 4 stars Story 1.5-2 stars I really love duet narration by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross, but sadly this rockstar/little sister's best friend romance was a miss for me. The plot seemed to jump from place to place and I had a really hard time following along. I didn't especially like Tallia or Memphis and it didn't feel like they shared anything but a physical connection. The push away felt abrupt and it was hard for me to believe that a manwhore like Memphis could keep it in his pants for that long and actually pine for Tally. Plus, the entire drama with Stevie Danielle at the end felt rushed and out of place. The saving grace was the narration, but I did find that the constant giggling and laughing by Memphis and Tally was really distracting and borderline creepy. It looks like I'm in the minority on this one, but it just wasn't for me.

I love this story

What did you love best about Memphis Black?

Wen Ross has such a sexy voice. I love the way he delivers the story.

What other book might you compare Memphis Black to and why?

It reminds me of the stage dive series.

What does Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Again Wen Ross sounds so good I think him and Kai Kennicott did a great job bringing the characters to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was funny how all the guys interacted with each other.

Any additional comments?

A good buy:)

Rock My World Star's

I loved the narrations! Wen and Kai bring this story to life.

Memphis is the big man in my eyes, very self assured and knows it. You know the type.
Tallia is more reserved and shy-ish. I say shy-ish because once this girl opens up she is explosive.

Watching these two dance around them selves was fun and funny. I loved how Memphis treats his sister with reverence and brotherly affection.

When all the band mate come to play its fun and a really great listen. I am glad we get to see some of our favorites from past books.

I did find the story a little lacking, I kind of felt like I was missing things even when I wasn't. Not saying its not a great book because I very much enjoyed it just not as much as I enjoyed some of the others by this author. <3

3.5 STARS A GOOD HARD ROCK LOVE STORY BUT...

I'm a sucker for handsome sexy Rocker stories and gorgeous, hot and talented Memphis Black fit my 'yes please Santa' list - a reformed bad boy, tattoos, a 'feel good' piercing and a heart that's eventually true to just one woman - Tallis. The girl he grew up with, the girl he drunkenly barfed over after giving her her first kiss, the girl that would inspire songs and she was the girl that he wanted forever with. But first.....

They were going to fight their attraction and the mutual chemistry that sizzled between them, they were then going to give in to their desires with steamy abandonment and there would be dramas and challenges along the way. Then, after shattered hearts, broken dreams and a 'no tomorrow's together' future loomed.... sanity prevailed, tempers died, the 'threat' was dealt with and they changed their lives, and futures, for the better. And that's the problem I had with this listen.... the angst and drama seemed to be over so damn quickly with no in-depth details and then suddenly, and way way too soon, I'm hurtling (Mach 3 style) towards the HEA ending.

It's a good but sometimes choppy listen..... a sweet climb of a tender romance between two people destined to become lovers but it seemed to go from all depth and intense feelings after a drama to the Epilogue in one Chapter - I nearly got whiplash! I actually went back to see if I'd missed a Chapter or three. This is a new Author to me and I will now search out other books by her and, of course, what really made this listen was Kai and Kat's conversational type narration where each of them stuck to their own genders which made for a wonderfully smooth listen. Dual POV's, sex, good banter, humor, emotion filled lyrics to sigh-worthy songs, a typical man-whore Rocker turned good guy, a shy, reserved, confused, timid Dancer who bagged the Lead Singer/Writer/Guitarist in an about to make it big Rock Group and good dynamics between band members and various secondary's characters.

Worth a credit? Yes, despite the all too short ending where I wanted to know the 'more' in between the angst, make up and the happy ever after's..... like the dramas, pitfalls and joys of touring together etc., but maybe I'm just greedy that way. I will definitely get the next book in the series.... and I'll be checking out The Men Of Steel asap!

STD? Okay!

If you could sum up Memphis Black in three words, what would they be?

Moody, Sexy, Stubborn

What other book might you compare Memphis Black to and why?

Rocked (Lost in Oblivion series by Taryn Eliott and Cari Quinn) Rocker guy on his way up, falls in love and stumbles along the way until he gets the girl and his shot at the spotlight..

What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

They're a great storytelling pair. Wen can be a little stiff at times, but pulls off a convincing performance.

Memphis Black

This is not your typical rock romance story. You will find love, pain, betrayal and forgiveness and even more after that! I loved this book and the narration was done amazingly.

Loved this rock star forbidden romance!

I couldn't stop listening to this rock star forbidden romance! This first book in the Rockers of Steel series is about the 4 members of STD who are managed by Xavier Steel from the Men of Steel series. They are about to hit the big time when they head to Miami on vacation. Memphis Black is the lead singer and is enjoying the percs that come along with it. His sister wants to stay with them for a few weeks and invites her best friend to come along. Tallia is the girl next door that Memphis and his sister grew up with. They have both harbored secret crushes on each other but neither ever thought they were good enough for the other. Now they are all grown up and their forbidden desires are impossible to ignore. But secrets keep them from giving in to each other completely and could tear them apart forever. Their journey took some detours I didn't see coming and kept me totally engaged from start to finish. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are amazing at bringing this fun, steamy, and heartfelt story to life. They flawlessly portrayed the complex emotions of each character, and you could definitely feel the chemistry that smoldered between Tallia and Memphis. I really enjoyed this first book and was so taken by the rest of the band that I can't wait to listen to their stories next!
