My Favorite Rock Star Romance Books:

Drive is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Drive
by Kate Stewart

The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia.

At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics. But when it came to the soundtrack of a life, how could anyone choose a favorite song?

So, to erase any doubt, I ditched my first-class ticket and decided to take a drive, fixed on the rearview. Two days. One playlist. And the long road home to the man who was waiting for me.

Stella is a reporter who covers the music scene and ends up falling for a drummer and her editor. It is the ultimate love triangle romance to end all love triangles and it will keep you guessing as to which man she chooses until the very end.

It gives a great look at the struggles of a band just starting out, trying to make it big and the sacrifices that one makes to do so. It’s a definite must-read!

Kate Stewart also makes AMAZING song lists to go along with her romance books so be sure to check out her list for this book on Spotify!

Halo is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Halo
by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

The members of the band, TBD, are in a major jam when their lead singer runs out on them. They are desperate for a new front man but when Halo walks in for his audition, they’ve found their man.

The only trouble is that Viper, the guitarist, can’t resist Halo and it’s a bad idea to mix business with pleasure -especially since Halo is straight.

Halo is book one in a trilogy and trust me when I say that after reading this rock star romance book you’ll be grabbing for all of the books!

The tension and smoking hot chemistry between Halo and Viper was off the charts in this one and I couldn’t put it down.

The story kicks off with Halo and the band working to find their footing and their new sound, making it a perfect rock star romance book.

Lust Hate Love is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Lust Hate Love
by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Killian Michaels is the bassist for the world-famous rock band Fallen Angel and whatever he wants, he gets.

What he wants is their band manager, Levi Walker but Levi is not about to ruin the best gig he’s got going by mixing business with pleasure.

I devoured this rock star romance book in a day as I was so excited to be back with the boys of Fallen Angel.

The sparks between Killian and Levi were just too hot to ignore despite Levi’s rules against getting involved with a client. The epilogue was a great ending to the series too.

Make Me Sin is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Make Me Sin
by J.T. Geissinger

Chloe Carmichael is pretty happy to be both maid of honor and florist for her best friend’s A-list wedding.  The only snag is the best man, Bad Habit drummer A.J. Edwards, who treats her with nothing but disdain every time they are around each other.

So why can’t she stop thinking about him?

Chloe is definitely not A.J.’s type but he can’t deny their chemistry. He continually pushes her away to protect her from his secret but his walls may not stand a chance when it comes to her.

This book has it all. An enemies to lovers set up that has all the feels with two characters who have such amazing chemistry that they are both trying to deny.

You won’t stop reading until they find their happy ending hoping that they really, really do.

This is definitely one of J.T. Geissinger’s finest!

Lead is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Lead
by Kylie Scott

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it’s booze, drugs, or women.

However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call to his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.

Lena’s not willing to take any crap from the hot rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry.

But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

If you’re looking for a book with a rock star whose career is at an all-time high after living a life that was anything but glamorous, then this is it.

Jimmy is the stereotypical rock star who found himself in rehab and is now trying to find his footing out of it.

Read this for Jimmy’s grumpiness but also for Lena who is a really great, strong female character who’s his perfect match.

Idol is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Idol
by Kristen Callihan

Killian is a world famous rock star, but to Liberty, he’s the drunk guy sprawled out on her front lawn.

Killian is nursing wounds and a devastation that’s kept him away from the stage but it’s time for him to face the music and get his band back together.

If only he could keep Liberty in the process…

Idol is a great romance book to kick off a really great series featuring all the members of the band.

I enjoyed the song writing aspect to this romance book and how Killian and Liberty make it work in such a crazy world of fame.

Exposed is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Exposed
by Kristen Callihan

There are some people in life who know exactly how to push your buttons. For Brenna, it’s Rye Peterson. They can’t spend more than ten minutes together before they’re at each other’s throats, which makes working together that much harder. Rye is the bassist for the biggest rock band in the world, and Brenna is his publicist.

But everything changes when he overhears something he shouldn’t: a confession made in a moment of weakness. Now the man she’s tried so hard to ignore is offering her the greatest temptation of all—him.

Callihan’s entire VIP series is amazing but she may have saved the best for last. This is a fun look at two frenemies who work together and who have undeniable chemistry. And when they decide to take their working relationship into friends with benefits territory, the heat is scorching!

Callihan’s writing is just superb in this romance book about a rock star where she can have me melting one moment and crying the next. I just loved these two characters and cannot recommend it enough.

Spider is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Spider
by Ilsa Madden-Mills

He called himself Spider. I knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane. I didn’t know who he really was…British rock star…my stepbrother.

He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.

Everyone warned me about him. They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up. They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out. But I crumbled instead.

They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever. He just had to figure it out before it’s too late.

This is another romance book about a rock star who’s struggling with the negative side of fame including substance abuse.

You will be rooting for these two in this forbidden romance because they just deserve each other no matter their past and no matter their connection in the future. It is one of my favorites by Madden Mills.

Stripped is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Stripped
by Alexis Anne

Travis Brantley is excited to have finally landed his first record deal but it comes at the price of touring with a pop princess whom he can’t stand even if she is gorgeous.

And yet, one night when Kristen goes indie and sings an acoustic song with Travis, it skyrockets their popularity and has him changing is tune toward the singer.

This rock star romance featured two singers on the road and I loved it. It has the great build up of an enemies to lovers romance that turns up the heat when the two finally become real with one another.

But things can’t always be that easy when it comes to living in the spotlight…This was the perfect romance book with rock stars worth reading!

Lilac is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

Lilac
by B.B. Reid

Braxton Fawn is the new guitarist for Bound but she wasn’t the first choice of her new band mates. They are determined to turn her dream into a nightmare and get rid of her.

She just has to survive the tour and survive her attraction to them all.

I loved that this reverse harem book featured a girl guitarist who was extremely talented and didn’t let anyone stop her from fulfilling her dream.

The beginning completely pulled me in and kept me reading to see how the extreme hate the boys had for her could turn around to something more.

As Dust Dances is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading.

As Dust Dances
by Samantha Young

Who would guess that Skylar Finch, the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band, would be living off the grid in a cemetery in Glasgow.

The pressures of fame drove her to busking on the streets to make ends meet while trying to keep her identity hidden.

When Killian O’Dea hears the busker, he knows signing her to a deal would bring big success to his record label, only he can’t convince her to sign with him until one night she’s put in danger.

As their connection grows, Killian will have to make a choice between doing what’s right for the label and what’s right for the woman he loves.

Young took a different approach to this rock star romance and I loved it! She still brings her fantastic writing to this work but she gives us a female rock star who’s been burned by fame and no longer wants anything to do with it.

I also loved seeing the side of Killian as a record producer and how he had to wrestle his own demons when it came to pursuing Skylar both personally and professionally.

Read this for a great rock star romance but you’ll also walk away with some thoughts on the issue of homelessness in today’s society.

Backstage Pass is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Backstage Pass
by Olivia Cunning

Brian Sinclair is the lead guitarist for the rock band, Sinners but he’s lost his muse. One night he meets Myrna Evans, a human psychologist and professor, and he’s hooked.

Their weekend fling turns into a months-long affair when Myrna tags along for the rock band’s tour to study their groupies for her research.

On the road every boy in the band tries to seduce her, but it’s Brian who may steal her heart.

This one is your pick if you’re looking for a hot, erotic romance book with a rock star. Plus, you’ll get a taste of life on the road and groupie life.

I especially loved the reversal of “stereotypical roles” in this novel.

Brian is the rock star who’s wanting the committed relationship while Myrna is the one who’s just living the fantasy of being with a rock star and who is hesitant for any type of commitment.

If you love this one, you can check out the entire rock star series featuring all the members of the band.

One Time Only is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

One Time Only
by Lauren Blakely

Jackson needs a job and he needs money, but what he doesn’t need is to lust after his new employer, rock star, Stone.

Stone is known for mixing it up in the sheets with men and women alike, but it’s his new bodyguard that makes him think that maybe he’s interested in more than just a fling.

The more time they spend together, the more they can’t stop their feelings. But one is the boss and one is the employee and that line can’t be crossed. Or maybe it can, but just one time only.

This romance book is a must-read for fans of rock star romance books and MM romances.

The tension between Jackson and Stone is super hot as they both try to resist their attraction given their working relationship but soon that line is crossed and it’s on.

Blakely doesn’t shy away from the hot bedroom scenes in this one!

Catch Me When I Fall is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

Catch Me When I Fall
by A.L. Jackson

Emily’s whole life is wrapped up in touring with her up-and-coming country rock band Carolina George and trying to build their success.

One night when she’s feeling down, Emily finds comfort in the arms of a man who can finally give her the peace she’s been desperate for.

Only she doesn’t realize until the morning after that the man is the record producer who is set on signing their band.

I really liked the chemistry between Emily and Royce which was palpable from their very first encounter.

They are similar in many ways and he becomes her protector, savior and biggest champion at a time when she most needs it. 

There’s also an aspect of suspense throughout the book as Royce has an ulterior motive of revenge to save his family.

American Royalty is one of the best rock star romance books worth reading. check out the entire list of romance books about rock stars on She Reads Romance Books.

American Royalty
by Tracey Livesay

Rapper Danielle “Duchess” Nelson is on the verge of signing a deal that’ll make her one of the richest women in hip hop. But an incident with a rising pop star has gone viral, unfairly putting her deal in jeopardy.

A brilliant professor and reclusive royal, Prince Jameson prefers life out of the spotlight. But with the Queen’s children involved in one scandal after another, she puts Jameson in charge of a tribute concert in her late husband’s honor. Out of his depth, he takes the advice of a student and signs “Duchess” for the gig who’s anxious for the good publicity.

Too late, Jameson discovers the American rapper is popular, raunchy and not what the Queen wanted, although he’s having an entirely different reaction. Thrown together, they give in to the explosive attraction flaring between them.

But as the glare of the limelight intensifies and outside forces try to interfere, will the Prince and Duchess be a fairy tale romance for the ages or a disaster of palatial proportions?

I had to include this female rapper on the list because Duchess is just the coolest and a driven artist.

I loved how Livesay is used the real-life romance between Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle as inspiration for this romance book about a rap star who falls for a prince. If you want to mix a bit of rock star romance with royalty romance, this is a must-read.

Check out my book review of American Royalty.

    • Hi Melissa…this is a different take on your ask but maybe check out A Merry Little Meet Cute by Sierra Simone and Julie Murphy. The hero was a former boy band star and the heroine is an adult film star and they are both in a “Hallmark”-esq movie together.
