Pick - KE Osborn - Blog Tour

Title: Pick (The Recoil Rock Series #1)
Author: KE Osborn
Genre: Rocker Romance

Danger—it's a word that strikes fear into most people.
But for me it's not just a word, it's a legacy, a lifeline, my name.

My life has been crazy—ups a downs like the highest rollercoaster you've ridden.
On tour with the world’s biggest rock stars and on my way to being one myself.
Then I met her.
The woman who ruined me completely.

Fast forward through the shit storm that was my life—I lost the girl, I lost my band. Hell, I lost it all.
My only choice was to run.
And running was the best thing for me.
Because I ran into a pink haired beauty and everything started falling into place.
My band reformed and we’re pushing to be right up there with the best of the best.
But when you’re fighting to get to the top, is the pressure too much to keep your band, and the girl?

In the end, if your heart’s in danger, can love truly be enough?

4 Stars 

Pick is the first title in the recoil rock series. I've got to say that as soon as I saw this book was a rocker romance and also related to the Satan's Savages MC series, I had to pick it up, two of my favorite genres to read. Pick is Danger and Lunar's story, it's an emotional romance, of finding love after having your heart broken. Those familiar with Ms Osborn's work will be familiar with both Danger and Lunar if they have read Sharp, as some of the story overlaps in timeline with Techie's story. As someone who has enjoyed the Satan's Savages MC series, it was great to see Techie and Steel make quite a few appearances within this story line. 

Lunar hasn't had the easiest of lives and Danger gives her the confidence to see beyond her current set of circumstances being a club girl and stripper. This pair are quite like-able and believable, they really bring the best out in each other and share a strong chemistry and their love scenes are both hot, steamy and passionate. 

The secondary characters are quite entertaining in particular Ryan. I found them all to be quite endearing with the exception of Nate, but i'm sure their is a story that has yet to unfold for his behaviors. Time will tell if he grows on me as much as the rest of the members of Recoil. I loved the banter between Danger and Lunar, but also between Lunar and Ryan, it's fun flirty and kept me completely enthralled and turning the pages. 

Overall Pick is an enjoyable contemporary rocker romance, and I look forward to reading more of Recoil in the future.

Danger steps up to the mic and clears his throat. Everyone looks up to the stage, and he smiles a knicker-dropping smile out to the patrons. I draw my bottom lip in with my teeth as even I squirm on my seat at that smile.

“Hey Adelaide, we’re Recoil, and we’re gonna blow your fucking minds!” he calls out and the crowd laughs, even some people cheer. Danger furrows his brows like he was expecting everyone to erupt into a frenzy of elation or something. He nods back to the drummer, and he kicks in the beat and then the music begins. As it filters off through the bar, the sound is amazing, euphoric even. It flows through me making the hairs on my arm stand to attention. Their sound is electrifying, and I love it.

Danger steps up to the mic and what happens next sets my soul on fire. His voice echoes through the mic and sweeps into my pores, flooding my veins, filling me up with warmth, like smooth honey being dripped all over me and then he’s licking it off so sexually it’s driving me crazy. I can’t even imagine how someone’s voice can sound so erotic, and so haunting, and so goddamned perfect at the same time. He’s mesmerizing, and as I stare at him moving around the stage and commanding that everyone pay attention, the entire room shifts and watches.

All eyes are on the band as the area fills with an electrical charge that flows through the air, flicking from one person to the next, connecting us all with the way he sings the lyrics and the energy he performs with. This guy’s a magician, and he has us all under his spell.


Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.

Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry and get completely enveloped in the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.
