Re-Release Blitz ~ #Reviews ~ The Pandemic Sorrow Series by Stevie J. Cole


 A dirty-mouthed rocker is waiting for you.

Find out what it’s like backstage with sex-crazed rockers. Filled with angst, laughs, and some steam, Stevie J Cole’s Pandemic Sorrow Rocker sure to tickled your rocker fancy.


 Jag Steele.
Rock star. Womanizer. Addict. With endless nights of parties and screaming fans, Jag can have anything he wants. And he wants Roxy Slade, but Jag is the epitome of everything Roxy hates. His sexy smiles and determined advances do little to shake her. And then she sees a crack in his rock star armor, a broken past that she can't help but identify with. Is it enough to make her fall for this tortured rock star?
An addict and his high.
A girl and her shattered knight.
Could you fall for the bad boy you know will ultimately break you?


Jag is the gripping telling of the struggle of a sex god, rock and roll addict. I was pulled into this story right from the start. There are no hearts and flowers, but a true account of loving an addict. The way Cole delved into this monumental subject had me unable to put this book down. Jag Steel is your average kid growing up with a single mom who works hard to achieve his dream of making and performing music. Once in the life of rock and roll star, sex and drugs come hand and hand.  Spiraling out of control after years of this life shows us the internal war Jag deals with when he meets Roxie. She sees him, really sees him not the rockstar. Jag is heartbreaking trying to choose between Jag the man or Jag Steel the rocker. Cole delivers a story not just about a love story or a rock band story but a real, honest, ugly story about addiction and the challenges that person faces. My heart (and eyes) wept at times for Jag and I was hoping and rooting that Roxie being in his life would be enough to help him. This story was told so flawlessly that I became part of the story. I laughed, I wept, I held my breath in fear of the outcome. This story will make you look at relationships and see the work that most romances leave out. Be prepared to read the rest of Pandemic Sorrow Series because you will not want to stop after the last page.


 Sex is all I need. I don’t need love.
I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind.
Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all



Stevie Cole delivers yet again with a behind the curtain, gritty story of the life of a rockstar. Written along the same timeline as the first story in this series, Jag, Rush gives readers a different perspective of what is going on in the band Pandemic Sorrow. We follow along with Rush the Bassist who has embraced the life of sex, drugs, and rock & roll to the fullest. As a reader you are torn from wanting to hit him or possibly you know, climb him like a tree. That is the exact dilemma that faces Jules, their assistant from the record label. Giving in just once isn't enough for either of them and the ups and downs that follow keep readers glued to the pages. Coles writing draws readers right into the story and we share the heartache and happiness right alongside the characters.  For the greatest understanding I would be sure to read the Pandemic Sorrow Series in order and you will be one clicking book three as soon as you can.  



 When you don't want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.
I thought Jag Steele was arrogant and entitled, the standard dick of a rock star. Funny thing is, people aren't always who you expect them to be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag would hold any significance, but it did.

I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.

Some people may say our story was too screwed up to be a romance, but for two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly.


Stevie Cole has yet again set the bar. Roxy is the third story in the Pandemic Sorrow Series and if you loved the other two, you will fall in love with Roxy as well. I was worried when I saw that this would be Roxy’s point of view from the Jag story. So many times you end up reading the same book twice. That is not what you will get. Do you still get an emotionally gripping, heart stopping, story dealing with love and addiction and those affected, absolutely! We learn so much more of Roxy’s history that it opens your eyes to what she was dealing with in the first book. Cole gives readers what they have come to expect in this series with a very real, and dirty account of life with drugs and the impact they have on so many lives, not just the users. I was again transported into the Pandemic Sorrow world and I hate when I have to leave. I hope there is more coming from our favorite rockers, I can't wait to one-click. 


Coming Soon!
