Release Review: Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin




10 cities in two weeks 10 famous rock stars

On my knees

Against the wall

On my tits

I don’t care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it.


Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

He told me I was too uptight.

Too vanilla.

Too boring.

So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea.

What I didn’t know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I’ve got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.

Rock stars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.

Hollywood is calling.

I get to choose which rock stars I want.

The stakes are high.

This sh*t just got real.

What could go wrong?


The synopsis alone will have readers intrigued with exactly what type of rocker tour Michelle Mankin plans for Raven to take when her drunken rant about her cheating ex-boyfriend goes viral and gives her a way to free herself of her inhibitions and her boring self as she embraces a series of acts of sexual debauchery, providing her with an outlet to discover who she truly is beyond how her father views her and her guilt driven self-perception.

Becoming known as the RFC Chick is nothing like Raven anticipated it would be and now that she’s unable to end her role until her RFC mission is complete, she needs to get lucky in order to fulfill her obligations, stay true to herself, and understand the true definition of unconditional love. 

I’ll be honest…as I kept reading Raven’s story and realized exactly what she planned to do, even when complications started to make it an even dicier situation; it seemed like with what occurred pretty early on in the book that she would figure out a way to to bypass who others wanted her to be and do what her heart told her to do, but it’s clear that Raven’s a complicated woman who has been burned from other relationships and she also has suffered greatly from the loss of her mother and brother, conforming to meet other people’s standards and giving up her own dreams and goals. So, while I didn’t like some of Raven’s decisions and actions, I could see why she did what she did, and I’m just damn glad that there were people there who had her back when things went a little sideways.

I don’t want to say too much about the hero…but he definitely is one dreamy rocker and he doesn’t seem to mind Raven’s fallen angel status…the push and pull between him and Raven plays out well and even though there’s tension and hurt feelings, how they evolve as a “couple” seems to fit the whole set-up of the storyline and provide readers with hope that it will all work out for them in the end.

The secondary characters play a pivotal role in Raven’s RFC experience, and they also help to ground her when she becomes a reality star whose every illicit act becomes public consumption, illustrating just how risqué her 10 city, 10 rockers tour is supposed to be, thankful that there are people who have her back, ensuring her at least a little bit of comfort in this craziness she finds herself in due to her cheating ex and a little too many alcoholic beverages. 

Rock F*ck Club is one hell of a lust fueled adventure, and it definitely illustrates the negative side of reality television and how easy it is to get caught up in the debauchery at play. Be ready for Raven to take readers on quite the sexual experience that will change her in ways she never anticipated, forcing her to take a look inward and figure out just who she is and what she wants most out of her life.
