    "Seduction and Snacks is a humorous contemporary adult novel. It is heavily laden with adult themes so it may not be everyone's cup of tea."

    "This book does not live up to the level that the others in the series have. With that said, its still a pretty good read. Especially for people who have read the other books in the series. The author created characters that were very likable. Even ones that might have been jerks, turn it around to become decent humans. "

    "I have never liked this particular series. I think it is even more superficial than most romance series (which are mostly pretty superficial). Some people love this series so who am I to judge. You may love it."

    "Romance novels have been my thing since my teens and I'm a sucker for anything witty and contemporary. I searched specifically for that and came across this book, "Rock Chick Renegade". The title intrigued me so I went ahead and ordered it. Unfortunately, the title was much better than the actual story. This book is pretty mediocre at best."

    "This has the feel of one of those books that throw random plot and character elements together just to sound different. I don't read straight romance books often, especially 1st person perspective."

    "I just can't get into this at all. It's so uninteresting and uninspired to me. If I had to read a romance novel I would prefer a different setting and time period to start. Then it would really have to have a better female character."

    "Let's face it, all romance novels are trash. This isn't even good trash though. It's meant to be witty, but the one-liners are extremely played out and the characters are so see-through it's ridiculous. Pass. "
