After reading the first book, I instantly had a craving for the next. Awesome book, awesome characters, awesome plot.

Such a good read. I highly recommend it if you love rockstar romances. The plot and characters were perfect.

Well the sequel to Broken was certainly no dissapoinment. I was very reluctant to put it down I just couldn't stop. The story really sucks you in. The book follows more drama for Henley and Jagger. There were a few moments where if he had been a real person I would have loved to slap him! 
I love that the book is told from multiple points of view so we get to see what Henley, Jagger and Kip are going through. Would have liked more from Kips POV as he is definitely my fav with his witty banter and his pure affection for Henley.
The book is full of emotion which you can't help but get drawn into and is very well written. 
The book ends on a cliff hanger which at 1am this morning I was not prepared for! 
Am looking forward to the next book to see what's in store for Hen and the gang

Samantha calls Jagger and screams she was his publicist and she was supposed to know about this before anyone else. A baby. Than she added they were all over Henley as they spoke. Jagger asked where his girl was? Samantha/Sam said she was at Saks with Jessica and the media had been outside for thirty minutes. Than Jagger asked how it happened so fast and Sam said Claudia Windsor had set him up She told the media to be at the doctor's appointment. Jagger said he wasn’t there. He’d asked for a paternity test and she asked for money. He met her to pay her off so she’d shut up. Jagger told Sam he was sorry he should have told her and his lawyer Meagan. He wanted Sam to bring Henley to him but Sam said to stay away from Henley. She will be humiliated Henley was a rock queen and had her own band Abandoned Shadow which was very successful also. . Sam said she didn’t care who’s baby it was he couldn’t blindside Henley, his parents, and is band like this. Keep his butt in the house and do not leave for any reason. She had to deal with the girls heart he was about to break in front of the world. Jagger wasn’t sure Henley would forgive him, how will he survive? When the doorbell rings he sees it is Koi- his best friend and Henley’s brother as well as the leader of their band. Koi said he had been sent by Sam- after he punched Jagger- he told Jagger to get everything he owns and take it and get out of Henley’s house. She doesn't care where you but you can’t be  here when Henley gets home. Jagger begged to let him stay there and explain. Koi said time  for explaining was over when the story hit every news outlet in the world. Jagger said he’d pack but he needed to see Henley before he left. Koi told him not to imagine she wanted to see him right now and he had an hour to get his stuff out of her house. Koi also said he wasn’t coming back to his house after this. Henley loves Jagger and her passion for him overwhelms her. He invokes all these feelings she couldn’t decipher. Henley’s assistant and publicist are attempting to do damage control. Jagger is part of Koi's band - Broken Access. Sam told Hensley she had new security- goons-  to get her out of there- Cory and Maurice who offered to carry her out as Cory had went to take care of the problems outside. They take her to a nearby hotel and she drank and then cried as Samantha and Jessica rocked  her in their arms as tears went down their cheeks and she fell asleep in their arms. Jagger had begged her to stay home with him instead of going shopping with Jessica but she had been worried about finding him the perfect gift. Henley had been in love with Jagger forever. But for the longest time she had just been Koi’s little sister. Henley had known Jagger since sixth grade. Henwakes to loud voices and one is Koi’s than he comes to and he wraps his arms around her. She holds onto everything she has left as Henley knows she is about to walk through hell….again. Henley stayed in bed for three days and she doesn’t speak as she can’t find the words. Henley got herself up and told Samantha to be her best friend and not her publicist right now and tell her goons they were going out , she can’t stay holed up in the hotel any longer. Kip tells her goons to take them to Lure- an apparent celebrity hot spot. Jagger ends up at the club and once outside Henley agrees to listen to him. He talked to her  and than asks her to meet up with him after she had time to think. He knew he didn’t deserve it but than he will answer all her questions. She said she needed time but she call him when she was ready to talk.  She was going home. She needed the memories of them in her home to decide. Does she stay with Jagger or does she leave him behind? Kip buys Henley a puppy to help her heal. 
I don’t know how to really write this. I loved this book but hated the cliffhanger at the end -one of the worse ones I’ve seen. I laughed, I cried and even got angry while reading this book. I was poed at jagger for not letting henley know what was going on. I didn’t like what Henley did to lessen the pain she was in. I loved how Kip brought her a puppy to try to help Henley heal. I think Jagger gave up to soon if he really loved Henley than made more mistakes. I loved how Henley’s family and friends stood by her and tried to help. This book did need some editing. I liked the multiple POVs even if it broke my heart at times. I advise you to read the first boke in this guitar face series- Broken. I loved this and would have rated it a five but it lost a point for the cliffhanger at the end. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it. Just be warned this book as well as Broken ends  in a cliffhanger.

This is the second book in the guitar face trilogy. It picks up right where the first book leaves off!  Henley is angry and heartbroken but she is not going to let that get her down. She is ready to make music and move forward.  Before she knows it everything is spinning out of control and so is her behavior. 

Henley is quickly spiraling without anything to stop her. Jagger has broken her and she is barely holding on. This book ends in a cliffhanger. I ordered the third book off amazon as soon as I finished it. Great book!

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. I am a huge rock romance fan and those are the books I usually stick with so with that being said this series and this book in particular is one of the best of all of them. 
I have quite a few rock romance books on my book shelf waiting to be read and I kept bypassing this series for the usual rock romance authors I read. Boy, was that a mistake! Not to take anything anyway from some of the others but I have never gone through all the emotions that are thrown at you in this book as I have with this book/series. Ms. Marshall writes so that you feel totally invested in these people.
There’s No Crying In Rock and Roll takes you to some pretty dark places and I feel as lost as Henley does in some of these situations. When your heart and your head don’t agree it can put you down some roads you probably wouldn’t have went to otherwise.
Besides the dark places you always have Kip!! I don’t know how many laugh out loud moments I had reading this book. You would find yourself very lucky if you had a friend like him. Then there is Koi, a brother that you could only dream of having. He is protective, loving, caring and you share the same interests in music. Memphis comes along in this book and I really like him a lot already. He becomes Henley’s savior because he knows everything she is going through because he has been there himself. And last but not least, Jagger. This is where it gets messy and you can actually feel Henley’s thoughts and emotions when it comes to Jagger. 
My only regret is that I usually wait until all the books for a series are completed because I suck at waiting for the next to come out. It says a lot when you know you have that wait but the people in this series stays on your mind and it’s hard to let it go. I really hope Ms. Marshall will continue writing rock romance books because I would definitely put her as a #1 author to read. There is still so much that can be told about the other characters in this book and I can only hope she goes down this path.

"Anyone watching could see the immense love our souls share. Is that love enough?" 

Well, apparently I don't belong in rock-n-roll cuz I'm a cryer. And this series is putting my emotions through the wringer. All that shit you read in the media about sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll is definitely included in this story. Henley is devastated and acting out. The music helps, but it's not enough to heal her broken heart.

The more I read the more I love this author's writing style. She doesn't hold back or sugar coat things. She writes flawed characters that make me want to throw my Kindle and hug them at the same time. I feel their pain and their passion. I feel the lyrics and music. I feel the love the bandmates have for each other. I feel their helplessness when it's not enough. I feel frustrated when things don't go the way I envision them and I have to watch these characters that I've bonded with suffering.

I'm really enjoying the songwriting and music details included in this series. It's something I'm really interested in and reading about it makes me happy. I adore the support characters in this story and hope that every single one of them eventually finds love. Hell, I'd be happy if Henley comes out of this one. She's given me even more gray hair and my nails are nubs. As I'm sure you've already guessed, this isn't the end and the author left me hanging with my heart in my throat on the final page. So, I'm headed to Amazon to one-click on Walking Back to Georgia to feed my addiction.
