Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Tough Luck by C.M. Stunich

Title: Tough Luck (Hard Rock Roots #3)
Author: C.M. Stunich
Release Date: </ b>November 14, 2013
Genre: New Adult Romance
Ronnie McGuire is my target. But I wish he wasn't. I didn't sign up for this destruction, this pain. </ span> In his music, I hear his soul crying out for me.</ span> If I could, I'd run away from here and never look back because to tell you the truth, I'm terrified. There are forces weighing in on me that even I don't understand. I'm scared. Things are dangerous. This could get real ugly, real fast. & & & Lola Saints is a godsend. But I wish she wasn't. I don't know sh*t about her, but already, I'm hooked. When she plays, I can almost imagine the ghosts of the dead are calling out to me. If I could, I'd shed my soul and leave the pain of the past behind me. But I can't. I have to figure out if there's a way to fall in love anew and respect the old. But something else is going on, something weird. Something that tells me my tough luck might just run out real fast. *This is NOT the last book in the series. There will be later books featuring Turner and Naomi again, and they also appear in this volume quite a bit. ;)

(I received this book from the author for an honest review.)

     Let me start with a disclaimer, this is not the story of Naomi and Turner.  Sorry.  When I first saw this was the next book in the Hard Rock Roots series I just assumed it was the continuation of their affair, but it is not.  You will get to hear from them through out this novel, but Tough Luck is the story of Ronnie and Lola.  
     You may recall that Ronnie is among the shadows behind the personality that is Turner.  Ronnie tends to stay to himself behind it kit taking his frustrations out on his drums.  Living the hard life of sex, drugs and rock n' roll has taken his toll and worn him out, but he hasn't seen anything yet.  Lola is a sassy Aussie who is a member of one of the opening bands on the tour.  She has two jobs, rock hard every night and get close to Ronnie.  The closer she gets to Ronnie the sooner all her dreams will come true.  Or so she is told.
     When a series of event begins to unravel the world around him, Ronnie finds a small sense of peace with Lola.  If only he knew the truth.  No one is safe.  Everyone is a target.  
      I LOVE C.M Stunich novels!  She is one of my favorite authors.  I love the raw gritty edge she gives her characters.  There is nothing rosy or sunny about this novel.  It is dirty and sticky.  Sweaty and reeking with suspense.  If you haven't read any of her previous novels I suggest you fix that fast!
     Oh, and one final warning.  There is something else C.M. Stunich is good at.  Cliffhangers!  And she does not disappoint at the end of Tough Luck.

Happy reading!!

About the Author
C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance. Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers. C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world. Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.
