Rush (Pandemic Sorrow) by Stevie J. Cole Blog Tour
All books in the Pandemic Sorrow Series can be read as stand alones.
WARNING: This is not a traditional romance. This is a male point of view and before he finds his one you will be subjected to the dirty ways of an uncommitted rocker. This book contains explicit language and sexual situations. This book is intended for a mature audience.
It’s my job to play music, to make girls wet, and then to screw a select few of them. I’m a professional rocker. I’m rich, I’m famous, I’m one lucky son-of-a-bitch. I have everything – except control.
The industry owns me. And the only thing I have a minuscule grain of control with is women, but not that dominate, tie you up and gag you kind of control.
No, I want to govern how I make them feel. I need them to feel like a goddess while I’m in them, and I love being able to control the fact that they’ll never really have me. Love is complicated. It is bullshit. And even if I thought I needed it, the rules of being a rocker won’t allow it.
Sex is all I need.
I don’t need love.
But for some reason I want her. For some reason I can’t get her out of my mind. And lately, every time I’m with any girl besides her it feels wrong.
I can practically have any woman I want, but I can’t have her. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass.
Sex was all I had.
And sometimes I thought maybe love was all I needed…with her.
Rob’s Review – ♥♥♥♥
Reading this book straight after Jag wasn’t really the best thing to do. I should have left a gap. The reason being is that Jag and Rush are very similar. They both live the typical rockstar life of sex and drugs and rock n roll.
Whereas Jag was a total mess with his drug habit, Rush was more responsible with his drugs, if that makes sense! He had a handle on it and used more for recreational reasons. He controlled the drugs, they didn’t control him. The difference between the two of them was that I think Rush was more likeable and more dimensional.
Jules was a strange character. I swear her character changed half way through the book making me go from really liking her to thinking what a bitch towards the middle of the book!
Once again, I enjoyed reading Ms Cole’s depiction of the life of a rockstar. It all seemed very plausible to me. I felt this was a better written book. The plot was set out early on and kept true throughout the book. I felt the story moved forwards and flowed much better than the first book.
If you like your rockstars fucked up but likeable then you should pick up these books!

Oh, what to say?
I love writing (obvious since I’m on here, right?) I don’t have a specific genre – I just write whatever story manifests itself inside my brain.
Writing is like therapy. There is nothing else that I can lose myself in the way I can a book – the way a well written story can take you away from reality and leave you in a dazed state once you’ve finished… that is unbelievable. I can only hope that whoever reads my work will be sucked into the little world I’ve created on the pages.
Aside from writing, I love sloths and mythology. I kind of have a thing for vampires, because let’s face it, something about the fact that they have to fight the urge to bite your neck and drain the life from you is rather sexy. I have an irrational fear of the zombie apocalypse. I honestly cannot imagine a more horrifying way to go than by being ripped to shreds by a mass of mumbling, decaying, and oozing corpses with clicking teeth. Ugh! I just shuddered typing it.
Now the boring basics: I grew up in the south listening to a ton of grunge rock (I’m sure if you read my books you’ll be able to guess who my favorite
bands are). I wanted to major in theatre and creative writing but my parents refused to let me. They told me those weren’t “reliable professions”. Reliable? I’d just rather do something I enjoy!
When I hit 30 I decided to start a bucket list and publishing a book was on the top (followed shortly by meeting a certain celebrity). Proud to report I’ve accomplished both.
So, here I am with my first novel and working on the second one. The journey of writing Bound to the Fallen has been amazing and allowed me to meet many wonderful individuals.
I hope if you read my work that you will enjoy it. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick of all… it puts the reader in the mind of the writer (kind of creepy if you think about it).
I hope you love my little world as much as I do.
