I’m no Prince Charming.

Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I’m also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, “The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet.” Apparently, I’m a legend.

Am I surprised? Hell, no. It’s a reputation I’ve earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune . . . and spent every damn day since pretending I don’t regret it. 

Now fate’s dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it’s a second chance for me—for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can’t give Piper a future.

Because there’s a difference between a legend and a fairy tale . . .
Only one of them ends happily ever after.


Watching Landon Cox on stage from forty feet away had been bad enough. But here, now, close enough to touch, I was jolted by the power of his presence.
Still shirtless and sweating after an intense performance, my eyes danced over the rippling muscles rising from beneath the inked skin of Landon’s naked torso, his broad shoulders tapering to slim hips, perfect V cuts forming an arrow pointing south.
Vitality seeping from every pore.
My gaze was drawn inexorably upward. Blond hair a damp mess, the faintest trace of stubble darkening a jawline that could have been cut from marble. A face so symmetrical, so severely beautiful, it would take even the most talented sculptor a lifetime to get right.
Landon Cox was a fantasy in the flesh.
I’d imagined this very moment dozens—no, hundreds—of times. But now that the moment was here, Landon and I, alone in a room again after all these years, I had nothing.
In a blink, Landon’s expression wavered. His winged brows, three shades darker than the hair sweeping across his forehead, pulled together. Eyes like hot coals burning into me.
As if the sight of me caused him pain.
I tore my gaze away from his face, but it only landed on the swaths of ink covering his chest and extending over his arms. My mouth watered at the sight. I wanted to trace every tattoo with my tongue, every slash and swirl and stripe. After six years, how would Landon taste?
Like regret, I realized with a sickening thud. Because regret was all that remained of what we’d once shared.

Rock Legend is the second book in the Nothing But Trouble series by Tara Leigh, although it can be read as a standalone I would recommend reading the series in order so that you can follow each of the band-mates find their HEA's as they unfold since they are prevalent in each of the books.

I enjoyed Rock King, but I LOVED Rock Legend. Landon and Piper get their second chance at love in this book, but it is a long and bumpy road that the two must travel to get to their HEA. There were times that I honestly didn't think things would end well for them and wondered if we were going to be left with a cliffhanger. This book was not rushed at all, it just felt like they had one obstacle after another and the way they were pilling up....well it wasn't looking good for them.

Tara Leigh gutted me with the epilogue. I enjoyed the steamy read, even with all the obstacles sexy time was plentiful and HOT! But the epilogue had me crying like someone close to me was going through what was happening and I know it's because of the way the book was written. Tara Leigh pulled me in right from the very beginning and made me feel as if I was right there witnessing it all first hand as one of their closest friends would be, so yes I was balling like a baby for a while....even after I finished the book!

Once I completed the book I continued reading the Author's Note and I feel the need to share it with you because I wholeheartedly agree with what she says.

Author's Note
"Piper represents an all too common problem in our society - women clinging to the idea that they have to be perfect to be worthy of love.
No one is perfect.
To everyone reading this note - it is our differences and imperfections that make us who we are. Please, embrace them. 
Life would be painfully boring if we were all the same."




Tara Leigh attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.
