Review of HOT ROCK by Annie Seaton

Blurb of HOT ROCK

Megan Miller is on a dream trip to research her doctoral thesis at a rock festival in England. When she arrives in town she’s stunned that her temporary neighbor is the spitting image of her 70’s rock idol, too bad he’s also a world-class jerk. So why can't she stop thinking about him?

Seventies rock star Davy Morgan is a man with a secret: rockin’ in one time and living in another. He holds his privacy close to his heart, so when a beautiful girl who not only loves but truly understands his music moves in next door, he works overtime to keep her at a distance. Easier said than done.

Megan follows Davy to the rock festival, but it’s not what or when it seems. The lure of the music draws them closer, but can their newfound love span across the decades, or will it get lost in time?


HOT ROCK REVIEW by Maria Perry Mohan


This book took me right back.  Back to the seventies.  Picture this.  It’s 1973.  I’m ten years old.  My parents have rented a cottage by the sea for our annual family holiday.  And in the next field, there’s a rock festival going on.  Did I go?  Of course not, I was way too young.  But I remember music strumming on late into the night.  I remember hippies roaming around.  Long-haired, some of them wearing granny glasses.  Jeans.  T-shirts.  Kaftans (we called them ‘maxies’ back then).  I also remember reading articles about David Bowie, Marc Bolan and Slade in a magazine called ‘It’s Here And Now’.  Reading song words and tearing out posters and pinning them on my bedroom wall.

I read on enthralled as Megan, the heroine, a girl who wasn’t even born in the seventies attended a rock festival in 1973.  When her rock star lover looks up from his performance and sees her there, his reaction had me
 screeching with laughter over my e reader.  My kids are ready to sign me in to the looney bin.  The story just drew me in. The characters of Megan and Davy Morgan were so real, I could almost hear their voices.

Ever wished you had a time machine and you could just go back and relive Bowie singing ‘Star Man’?  Now you can.  Here’s the book that will take you there.  Oh, I had such a good time reading this.  It was, yeah, fab!  Far out, man!  Keep them coming Annie Seaton, keep them coming.  I’m giving this the full five.  Full five plus!  It’s the best read I’ve had in ages.  And believe me, I’m reading some good books lately.

5*

  6. I love 70's rock music. I would have loved to have seen Led Zeppelin live in concert. I was very much a rocker in the late 80's. Motorhead, Metallica and Iron Maiden were my favourite bands! Best of luck with your book Annie. Lovely blog, Maria. Xx

    1. Hi Caroline, in my youth I saw lots of bands live like Meatloaf and Status Quo. I thought I was quite the rocking chick with my short skirts and luxuriant hair, and heavily kohl rimmed eyes, but I was probably just kidding myself. LOL

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar


As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
