Real Ugly and Get Bent (Hard Rock Roots Series) - C.M Stunich

I can't stop saying this when I talk about this series - HOLY MIND F*CK! What a ride and a half.
I finished Real Ugly on Thursday and was thanking god then that I'd waited to read this series as I was able to jump straight into Get Bent (Which was finished by Friday night).

As I mentioned over on my on my Rocker Books Page - These 2 books are not your typical glamorous lives of Rockers who live in Hotels and have fancy houses. These books are down right dirty and ugly.

Real Ugly 

I loved this book but as I found out it wasn't my typical read. It quickly had a "whodunit?" element. So as well as following the tough as nails Naomi and king of all assholes Turner through the will they or won't they end up in bed without killing each other, you also have to be mindful of the past Naomi keeps bringing up and how they is playing a factor into the future.
This book is not all love and rocker serenades either. It's down right Rock N Roll dirty, Sex on Bathroom Floors, Drugs, drugs and lots of interesting language.

Synopsis goes like this - Turner Campbell is an asshole.

I f*cking hate him.
But I can't get enough either.
He sings like an angel and f*cks like a devil.
If I could, I'd run away and never look back because to tell you the truth, I think this man might be the death of me.
Naomi Knox is a bitch.
I can't f*cking stand her.
But I can't stop thinking about her either.
She looks like an angel and plays like a devil.
If I could, I'd f*ck her good and forget all about her, but to tell you the truth, I think this woman might be my last saving grace.
So Naomi is one kick ass, take no prisoners chick. She's the lead Guitarist in the band Amatory Riot.
I loved Naomi's attitude and how she didn't take sh*t from anyone, well except for Hayden (Lead Singer), There is a reason for that though which you'll need to read the book to find out :).

Moving on to Turner Campbell, lead singer for Indecency. Well what can I say. This guy is a real arrogant prick!! I wanted to hit him most of the time cause he was a serious douche bag on many occasions. Somewhere in the book though I became a fan of getting Turner and Naomi together and even maybe kinda liked the Hot Mess that is Turner by the end of the book (Ok maybe I liked him a bit more than a little bit. I'm a sucker for a hot mess.

I could not out these books down. I'm not going to hide this so when I say books it's because Real Ugly has one hell of a cliff hanger. If Get Bent hadn't just come out I would of been pulling my hair out obsessed with wonder on what's going to happen next.
C.M Stunich even apologises for it at the end of the book - I want to apologize for the cliff-hanger. It's super screwed up, and I'm sorry. Unfortunately, not everything gets to be tied up in a pretty bow, especially not a story as fucked up as this. What I can promise you is that you'll get an ending … eventually. Check for the second book in the series, coming soon. It's a real doozy, but I promise you answers. Peace and love. C.M.

Right so on that note I'll touch on Get Bent (I don't want to ruin it for anyone)

Ok so I really only wanted to post a picture of Get Bent's cover cause well............I'm sure you have eyes and can see exactly what I'm seeing so really enough said lol.

Definitely well worth checking them out!!!!!!
