✰✰✰ 5 STAR REVIEW ✰✰✰

Annie Slade was the pride and joy from Rock God Colton "Colt" and Lia Slade. Being the oldest of their two adopted daughters, Annie was following her dad's foot steps with her own band with her younger sister, cousin and best friend Aston.

Annie has demons that chase her daily and she will have to fight them and pretend nothing is wrong like she has been pretending her whole life. Every time Aston is near her she feels safe and knows she will defeat those demons.

Aston Soulding is Anna and Johnny's only son. Being the that this two were best friends with Colt and Lia, Aston was Annie's best friend but his feelings for her had always be more, but he will keep them burried down until he knows she feels the same way.

Annie will have to confront her demons and face the ugly consequences that will result of those battles. But will the love and admiration Aston has for her be enough to help her or will they end up destroying them?

Wow, I am so in love this is story. The love, admiration, loyalty and passion this two characters have for one another is so palpable you will think they are real person and not fictional characters.

If you are into rock stars this book is for you. I know I am so hooked in this series I can't wait to continue reading the series.
I guaranteed you, you will not be disappointed.

Get your copy as soon as you can this is a must read for this summer.

Another great book from the author K E Osborn. I was quite looking forward to catching up with the previous characters from Off Your Rocker and Get Your Rocks Off, and I wasn't in the least bit disappointed.

The next generation is exactly that. Rock Solid follows the trials and tribulations of the children of the members of the Rock Group, Slayed. Lead singer, Colt, and his wife Lia, went on to have two adopted children Annie, fondly known as Lennox and their younger daughter, Ella. Johnny is also a member of Slayed and his wife, Anna had one child. A son, Aston.
Rock Solid tells the story of Annie and Aston and their band Staked which consisted of children of the rock band Slayed. From an early age Annie and Aston had always been inseparable.

Annie who came with a quick fire temper, is strong headed and relentless when something makes her angry or upset. Aston, her best friend, was one of only two people that could calm her down. The other being her younger sister, Ella. The connection between these two characters was shown throughout the book and as the years went on, you could tell that Aston felt more than just friendship.

When Annie realised that she felt more than just friendship for Aston, she was confused at the reaction of her body; every time they touched she tingled. Even when he entered a room she would know that he was there. He was her rock, her confidante, her friend and she was running scared.
This book took you through the rebellious and hormonal teenage years of both Annie and Aston. The feelings she had kept hidden, the feelings of being unloved, thinking that she was unworthy of anyone's love as her birth mother had given her up for adoption.

Review of Rock Solid? (The Next Generation Series Book 1) by K.E. Osborn

Review done for Hooked on Books

4 ½ out of 5 stars

The kids of the famous rockers of the band Slayed are growing up.

Annie is the adopted daughter of Lia and Colt. Growing up the child of famous parents is no easy task. Knowing you are adopted and your parents didn’t want you makes life extremely tough.

Annie doesn’t thinks she deserves to be loved and throws herself into her music and her band Staked. Her constant rock is her best friend Aston. He has been by her side all her life.

Aston has been in love with Annie for a long. He has been waiting for the right time to tell her how he feels. He knows she is confused and weary about her feelings but he can’t wait any longer.

At first Annie resists because she doesn’t want anything to get in the way of her band making it big. But as time goes by, her feelings become stronger and she can’t fight them any more. She loves him too.

When Annie’s real mother comes back into the picture all hell breaks loose. The confidence Annie has developed is now shattered.

I loved this story. It gave insight into the mind of someone who is adopted and their point of view. Granted these aren’t the feelings of all adopted kids but I am sure there are a lot of similarities.

I enjoyed reading more about the characters from the first series. I love Lia and Colt.

I thought the book was a little slow at first with how young the characters are when the story started, but it really picked up and the ending was great!

I definitely recommend this book to read!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Rock and Roll Read! June 8 2015
By The Literary Vixen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest revuew*

Growing up Annie Slade had a pretty great life. Her father is Colter Slade, lead singer of the famous rock band "Slayed." Annie grew up around music so naturally it felt right to start a band. The band included her sister Ella, her cousin Caleb, Chad, and her best friend Aston. They called themselves by "Staked" and they are really good! Soon they get their big break and big things start happening. Annie is thrilled but can't seem to enjoy it. She struggles with her inner demons and with it comes rage and violent outbursts. On top of that Aston is acting different. The guy she knew as her best friend is suddenly much more. While Annie takes her own rock and roll journey, she goes through many ups and downs. Can she handle all the fame and a possible love life or will she let her demons win?

I love reading about rock and roll bands. I love music so naturally this book appealed to me. The beginning was a little slow for me but as the story progressed, I found I couldn't put it down. The author did a great job of describing certain events and lifestyle that I felt I was part of this close knit family and band. The characters were also great. However Annie's character took some time to like. Most of the time she came across bratty and selfish, that I wanted to slap her! By the end of the book though I was rooting for her. I loved Ella's character and hope she will get her own book! This book does contain mature content. This was a great read and I recommend checking it out. I give this 4 stars!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars June 8 2015
By TiffanyReadz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
K.E. Osborn gave us the rock group Slayed with her Rock God series and now we get Stalked with the Next Generation series. Book one features the spoiled brat Annie Slade and all of her emotional baggage. This review may contain spoilers for the Rock God series.

Annie Slade is the adopted daughter of Colt and Lia Slade. Her adopted sister Ella and cousins make up the band Stalker. Annie is a natural on the guitar just like her dad, however knows that's not where her talent came from since he really isn't her dad. There lies the crux of all of Annie's emotional problems, making her a total nightmare.

Like some stars, Annie wants to make the music without the fame part, that she can do without. She doesn't like that her every move has to be calculated as to not be misconstrued by the media. Some days is seems that her famous father cares about the media more than her and that just makes Annie want to do bad things.

This girl is a mess. She feels that nobody can love her since her real mother didn't even want her, so she constantly lashes out. I had a hard time feeling sorry for her because she was such an attention hog. Offered help time and time again, Annie refuses it and when she finally gets what she thinks she wants, it goes to hell in a hand basket pretty quickly.

I didn't like Annie from the first chapter and she didn't end up growing on me at all. Through out the book I felt that she was nothing but a b-word and didn't necessarily redeem herself by the end in my opinion. I did like that K.E. Osborn made a little glossary of UK English terms, as well as who was who in both bands. Very clever.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Electric Guitars for Rock Solid Dec 21 2015
By Backstage Blogs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I remember reading the two books in the Rock Gods series earlier this year, and had vague memories of them when i reread my reviews. I have been trying to clean some of my older books off my KU account, and this one was on there. As I read this one I remembered more and more of the original series, which really was quite good. I remember thinking, perhaps even writing, that I wasn't in much of a hurry to read about their kids being in a band. Maybe I didn't wait long enough, but I had a hard time getting into this (very long) first book in The Next Generation Series. I know there are many books in this series now, and I will probably eventually get to them all, but I am in no hurry to do so. My TBR is so long that I just don't have much desire to binge on a series - even ones I have read one or two books of and have absolutely loved. So one that I just can't seem to get very invested in will get pushed further down. But at the same time, it wasn't so bad that I am ready to write it off completely. The next book in the series focuses on Caleb, and though I LOATHED his mother when we first met them, I am quite curious about him, and his pixie. But I have thoroughly digressed away from the book at hand.

If you read The Rock Gods series, you will certainly remember Colt and Lia, and probably remember that a freak accident when Lia was chased by fans left them unable to have kids of their own. Fast forward however many years later as this begins, and the have adopted 2 girls, Annie and Ella, who are now teens or tweens, and have formed a band with the kids of the other members of Slayed. They call their band Staked, and this is mostly Annie's story, with large doses of Ashton, who is the son of Johnny and Anna. We find out that Annie was adopted when she was 6 months old (and Ella about a year after that, I think as a newborn.) Anyway, Annie doesn't remeber a time before Ella was part of their family, and Ashton doesn't remember a time he wasn't somewhat in love with Annie. She sees Ashton as her best friend, and freaks out when he tries to kiss her on her 16th birthday. The drama ensues full force after that, for the next 400 and some pages. If you like plenty of drama, some completely over the top, and some she brought on herself, and some her parents should have forseen, don't even finish this review - get started reading.

Maybe because I am a mom of teenagers, I just couldn't quite relate to a lot if the teenage/first love/first heartbreak/misc coming of age drama. But then again, I am kind of reliving it with kids that age. And I do like many books with this age group, but somehow I just never did get to the point I could relate to Annie. I had a lot of sympathy for her parents, especially her mom, but I just couldn't seem to get there with Annie. I am still giving the book 3.5 stars though (guitars as I run a rock romance blog) because a lot of Annie's family and friends caught my attention and left me wanting more of them. I wanted to feel some kind of connection with Annie, but I just couldn't get there. Besides having out of control (even for a teenage girl) anger issues, being completely self centered (again, even for a teenage girl) and getting written into completely over the top situations, I did want to like her. She did have moments where she realized her anger wasn't like others, and got her into stupid amounts of trouble and hurting those she loved, and moments when she would realize how much she was neglecting what those closest to her (particularly her sister) were going through while she was so over obsessed with being adopted. I pride myself on not giving spoilers, and I honestly think (and hope) I am staying on my side of that line, but I have to say, I have a hard time Colt and Lia wouldn't have gotten her a therapist early on. Simply because she knew she was adopted could have been enough reason. Or watching her angry outbursts hurting herself and everyone around her. But this isn't real life, and I understand that she needed to be the way she was for the dramas that ensued. Poor thing, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Brittney Spears and Miley Cyrus combined haven't been through all the crap poor Annie faces in this one book. That may have been another part of my trouble connecting.

I honestly hate giving negative reviews, and again, I didn't hate this, and do plan to, someday, read the rest of the series. Honestly, I am interested enough in the next storyline, it may not be terribly long. From the synopsis, I am thinking it could probably be read as a stand alone, but I am not really sure. I would also highly recommend reading The Rock Gods Series before any of these. It probably won't keep you from understanding the storyline, but I guarantee it will help immensely with some of the background stuff, and things from the past that are mentioned fairly regularly.

For mature audiences only for some fairly explicit sexual situations, some drug and alcohol use, some violence, a kidnapping. I hate to even mention this, but this book could really be helped by another run through by an editor. I try to be understanding of a few misspellings, wrong tenses, other grammatical errors, and honestly I didn't hold it against the book in rating it, but they were noticable enough (as in taking me out of the story to reread and decipher) and frequent enough that I felt the need to mention it. I really want to recommend this one, but I am having a hard time finding the right audience to recommend it to. Maybe after I read further in the series I will find it easier, and I will revise this review. And if the author should decide to re-edit it, I would be very willing to reread and revise my review. I have definitely read much, much worse; there is just something that didn't come together for me in this installment.
4.0 out of 5 stars #Team Astonie Dec 9 2015
By Rosa Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Being a fan of the The Rock God series, I was excited to get a taste of The Next Generation. I confess, I was expecting it to start out with the rocker kids being grown-ups already. I was surprised that the author took me back further, and showed me the life-long friendship between Aston & Annie. Their relationship first escalated when she was five and he saved her from a spider. That's when they determined to be BFF's forever. They were so sure that their relationship was rock solid and nothing could ever tear them apart.

Even though Annie was the adopted eldest daughter of rock god Colter Slade, she somehow still managed to inherit his talent and love of music. I'm sure it was osmosis, right? Being surrounded by the friends and family of the band, Slayed, how could she possibly have aspired to be anything other than a rock princess herself? The guitar was her toy of choice from an early age and she mastered it quickly. Unlike her adopted sister, Ella, who struggled a bit more but still managed become an accomplished guitar player too. Her best friend, Aston, played bass guitar. Her cousin, Caleb, was the lead singer. Chad followed by playing the drums and Staked was born. They performed their very first concert as teenagers with an audience of parents only. With the members of the very successful band, Slayed, as their mentors it didn't take long for their skills to exceed every expectation. Were they ready to handle a rock 'n roll lifestyle? Would the music industry lift them up or tear them down? Would the media spin them favorably or chew them up and spit them out? Would the fans (aka minions) accept the kids, or reject them? Would the rock god who could handle thousands of crazed fans succumb to the stress of raising two beautiful teenage daughters?

Annie's life was going great..until it wasn't. She's a hot head, very quick to erupt when things don't go her way. Those that know her and love her accept that about her, it's just who she is. But as she got older her behavior became less socially acceptable. Fortunately she had her BFF around to talk her off the ledge when she went off. Aston somehow always knew just what to say to calm her down. Actually, his very presence calmed her. She didn't even have to see him, she could feel when he was in the room. And then…his hugs which used to comfort and settle her…started to unsettle her. Instead of calming her heart…it started to beat faster. His touch which used to ease her emotions…started feeling like a spark of electricity. WTH? And what pissed her off even more was that her family and friends seemed to know something she didn't. They would nod and smirk, just waiting for something that they seemed to understand and she didn't.

It was fun for me to wait for IT to happen. But, unfortunately, it wasn't all smooth sailing. Nope, even though she was the pampered princess of rock royalty, she still suffered doubt and insecurity. Even when she had everything, it wasn't enough. Her demons tormented her and ripped away the peaceful cocoon that she had been hiding in. She learned that what she thought was rock solid could be crushed by doubt. She learned to be careful for what she wished for, because she just might get it. She learned that family could be defined in many ways. She learned that never could end up being now, and that forever could be never if you didn't appreciate it when you had it. Yup, there was a lot of painful life lessons thrown into the mix. While some parts of the story seemed too long and others too short, overall it was an enjoyable read. I'm hoping that since I experienced so many of Annie's growing pains with her, that the foundation has been set and moving forward with the series we will be hanging out with the band, as adults. I'm really looking forward to getting up close and personal with Caleb. I want him to fulfill my rockstar fantasies as the lead singer of Staked. My interest has been piqued as I saw glimpses of a possible steamy relationship with Indie. He's the oldest member of the band and I'm expecting him to show me all the things he kept hidden from his younger cousins.

A most enjoyable read, the story flowed quite nicely throughout the book and was a pleasure to read. I Look forward to the next instalment of the Next Generation.
