Book Review - There's No Crying in Rock-n-Roll by Sasha Marshall

My Thoughts

Henley discovers something about Jagger that breaks her. Completely shatters her heart and their relationship. Damn that Jagger! I was so mad at him for her. In the matter of moments her life changes and she begins to self medicate the pain away. Between losing Caleb and the drama with Jagger, Henley just can't face her life anymore. So she hibernates with her friends for a few days and then decides to club her pain away. She comes face to face with Jagger who asks to explain. This is where I fall a little more in love with Kip who gives him hell for what he has done to Henley and how it effects everyone. When Henley talks about how she has loved him since she was a child, my heart broke for her. She listens to his explanation and tells him that she needs time. Jagger hits his knees in tears begging her not to leave him. I have to admit that I didn't feel sorry for him. 

Swooning over Kip moment number two came when he gives her a puppy to try and help her heal. I love that he then talks Henley into their game and helps her smile and forget things for awhile. Then reality comes back hard when Jagger's drama is back in her face again. Damn that Jagger! And then I love Kip even more when he faces down Jagger's drama. Seriously he's delicious even mad as hell. I wanted to totally kick ass for Henley in that moment - both Jagger and the drama. Even more so when they all go home for Christmas and he brings the drama with him.

The truth comes out and Henley is still lost and broken not sure if she can be put back together after all of this. She spends her time writing lyrics that say what she can't right now. Henley and the guys go back into the studio to record. After an incident with Jagger, she ends up in the hospital. When Kip crawls into bed with her my heart broke again for her. After that Henley changes. She crawls deeper and deeper into herself. Then she finds out more secrets that have been kept from her and feels so betrayed. Then something happens with her grandfather...
Poor Henley. Can anyone save her from herself?

I so loved this book. I laughed and cried right along with Henley and fell even more for Kip and wanted to kick Jagger's ass. The end...holy...I just can't even talk about it. I am dying for the next book in the series. 

I heart Sasha! BIG! 
She totally rocks!

I give There's No Crying in Rock-n-Roll 5 hearts!

Read the first book in the series!


Henley Hendrix has been a guitar prodigy since the age of 12, and has grown up in rock-n-roll her entire life. By the age of 22 she was the Queen of rock-n-roll, and lead singer/guitarist in her band Abandoned Shadow. Women wanted to be her, and men simply wanted her. Tragedy strikes and she walks away from music for four years. She spends four years attempting to pick up the pieces of her life, then she is slowly pulled back to the only things she has ever loved, music and Jagger Carlyle. 

Jagger is People's Sexiest Man Alive, and rock's biggest bad boy, and every woman wants to bed him, while every man wants to be him. Jagger presses her to tour with his and her brother's band, Broken Access, and sparks fly. Her eyes are opened back up to music, and to the boy she fell in love with in the sixth grade.

The journey is marked by Henley's fears of her past, and how to proceed with her music career. She is surrounded by comic relief, and most of all love, but will the pressures of the rich and famous be too much after her sabbatical? Will the cameras and the women be too much for her?

About the Author

I have a pretty abrasive sense of humor, and I speak "guy" on most days. I love music, so incorporating it into Guitar Face was only natural. I toured with The Allman Brothers Band as a concert photographer during 2009, and gained a great deal of insight into the music industry and the lives of the rich and famous, and readers can see a good deal of that in the book. 

I live in Georgia, and have three dogs who drive me crazy. Most of my book was written while a mini schnauzer, 80 lb. lab, and an American Bulldog puppy (who is part monster and part baby doll, and possibly a tad of goat) all seeing who can sit closest to me. 

I enjoy tattoos, art, music, writing, reading, and photography. I love my boys bad, and tattoos are a must!
