My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a rock band, second chance romance with an added twist, involving the mafia which makes this an exciting read. I loved the characters and the storyline flowed well. Cade Morello is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it, as not only is he the drummer in chart topping US rock band, Default Distraction but he’s also as a Morello, the son of a mafia boss. However it doesn’t mean he can get anyone he likes and when the guitarist, Rafferty’s little sister appears all grown up Cade is determined to show her he’s serious about their relationship, even if it means returning too the world run by his father that he left behind. However Winter is not convinced they have a future as Cade has already broken her heart once before and that was before he became the bad boy of DD. An emotional rollercoaster of a story and great chemistry between Cade and Winter, kept me turning the pages well into the night. An enjoyable read and I am interested in reading the other books in Roberts’s ‘Default Distraction’ series featuring the other members of the band.

5 out of 5 stars

Cade is the third book in Default Distraction written by Ms. Roberts and it not my first book that I have read by her and it surely won’t be the last. Ms. Roberts blew my mind and she defiantly didn’t disappoint I think this is book is one of her best works. The characters are well written and amazing the love the little quirks these characters have. Do you believe in second chances? Do you believe in that all-consuming love?

Cade is the drummer of Default Distraction, and a Morello, being the son of a mafia boss, I get what I want, when I want it but its not everything, not to him anyway.

Then Winter walks in, she is their lead guitarist’s little sister, and she’s all grown up. She refuses to let down my guard again, once was more than enough especially for Cade Morello he is far too much to handle.

Now, Cade must convince her that what’s between them, really exists and its real.
Every touch, every taste, everything. We are the real deal, and he is not going anywhere. Even if it means following her back home to where it all started.

You will need to read this book to find out what happens to Cade and Winter but please read the books in order so you will know what’s going on with the other 3couples.

I highly recommend this book/series….

Wow – just wow! I’m honestly not quite sure where to even begin with this review – this has to be hands down – the best read of 2020 and in fact one of my favourite reads ever. I don’t think I can even find the words to do this book justice! I have read all of the books this author has written and she is one of my all-time favourite authors so I already knew I was going to love it – I’m not sure that I was prepared for just how amazing it was going to be. My emotions were all over the place with this book (I’m not even sure I can blame post pregnancy hormones now seeing’s as the baby is almost 5 months old!) I laughed and I cried, I didn’t know how I would feel from one [age to the next. The characters Cade and Winter were amazing! Cade – yep totally in love with him and I may even have a woman crush on Winter! I loved the two of them together – electric and passion galore!
Cade is a raw emotional read and one that will stay with me for a while – in fact it’s one I cannot wait to read all over again! I 100% recommend you one click this story today!!

Cade (Default Distraction #3)Cade by A.S. Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Default Distraction is a chart-topping band with let me just put this lightly, major success.
We follow drummer and a Morello, son of a Mafia boss, we see Cade expose a more vulnerable side to himself.
We find that Cade Morello is running from something that happened in the life but hasn’t looked back since.
Cade finds himself falling for the band’s lead guitarist’s little sister who has grown up right before his eyes who he thinks will freeze him out.
He has to prove his love for her to show her it’s legit. With every sense of his being, he knows it’s real and he’s in it for the long run. He’s down for the ride no matter where it takes him.
The problem with their love is they’re from two different worlds, two different countries and the world tells them it won’t work and it won’t make sense.
She’s a boss of her own: Keeping her business in check, pushing orders, and living her way on her own time. This is a world she embraces.
The difference with her and Cade is she’s not willing to lay down her guard while he’s putting it all on the table. She believes he’s too much to handle for her.
In this ride of a story, it’s exciting and unpredictable but worth the risk to delve into these character’s lives. Such a fun and interesting read. I couldn’t wait to get through the book just to review it. One of the best books I’ve read in a minute. I highly recommend it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book.

Cade is a drummer in a rock band and he has a bad boy image. He also has a disturbing past that means he is shut off from everyone.

Everyone except Winter.

Winter and Cade has a relationship when they were younger but when Cades music career took off he left her alone and heartbroken.

Years later Winter is hired to organise the grand opening of the bands new hotel and all the past feelings and attraction resurfaces between them.

However things have changes, the things that have happened since their split has shaped the way they are today. Can they rekindle their romance or will the heartache Cade caused Winter be too much for them to start over and try again.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cade is the 3rd book in the awesome Default Distraction series by A.S. Roberts. Each book concentrates on 1 member of the band Default Distraction. The story in each book runs concurrently so there is crossover in each book. You could read each book as a stand-alone but as this is such an awesome series, I’d advise you to read them all and if you do, you may as well read them in order.
Cade Morello is DD’s drummer and his family are mafia. He feels responsible for the suicide of his mother many years previously and now feels that he’s unlovable. Winter Davenport is the younger sister of DD’s guitarist Rafferty and comes with a lot of baggage from her younger years. DD are opening a hotel and Winter is in charge of all planning
I loved Cade and Winter’s story. Both are so broken and neither is looking for a relationship. Winter is still trying to get over a relationship from her past but Cade is determined to get her into his bed and to submit to him. This leads to a lot of very funny interactions between the 2 as Winter does everything to avoid Cade and to push him away.
I actually think that Cade might be my favourite of the DD guys although we still have to get Luke’s story which I can’t wait to read. If it’s anywhere near as good as Cade, then I’m going to love it.
110% recommend this book and the whole series.

Cade is the third book in the fantastic Default Distraction series by the incredibly talented A.S. Roberts. As with the other two books, this superb Rockstar romance had me completely engrossed right from the get-go. With plenty of emotion, drama, chemistry, passion, romance, intensity, tension, and some suspense- I found it just to riveting to put down.
It could be read as a standalone, but I really recommend reading the other two books first, as they introduce the characters and provide other background information that will really enhance your reading experience of this book- not to mention that they are an incredibly good read, too. The three books also play out, mostly, along the same timeline- so if you have read the other books, you are really getting a ‘fuller’ reading experience.
Cade is the drummer with popular rock band “Default Distraction”. They are riding the charts, and enjoying the life that stardom has afforded them. Cade’s life, especially his past, is quite complicated- and that comes into play through the story.
Winter is Rafferty’s sister (Book #2), whom we met at the beginning of the series. She and Cade have a past, which is exactly where she wants to keep things. She isn’t the same young girl she was then. She is in charge, in control, and used to calling the shots. She’s responsible for DD’s new hotel venture’s grand opening and it is her primary focus. Until Cade shows up. What happens here makes for a riveting read!
I fell in love with Ms. Roberts’ writing, and characters back in book one(Brody) and thought she would be hard pressed to top that book. Then book two released (Rafferty), and I thought the same thing. Lightening can’t strike three times in one place! Can it? Well, if you are A.S. Roberts, it can, and does!!! I was definitely looking forward to Cade’s story since meeting him back in book #1 but wasn’t too sure it would live up to the other two books- I had my hope’s, but a few reservations too. But, I really should have never doubted Ms. Roberts, as this book was EVERYTHING I could have imagined, and more- and EVERYTHING you could ever want from a Rockstar romance. The story really blew me away! It was quite raw in places, and incredibly emotive! I smiled, laughed, teared up, and felt every single word! I wasn’t just reading the words, I was IN the story, living every moment alongside these incredible characters.
As I have said before, Ms. Roberts has a real talent for getting her story and characters to really connect with the reader, pulling them in and captivating them with her words. The energy and tension she’s able to create in her stories, and between the characters, is truly masterful. I can’t imagine anyone reading her stories and not enjoying every word.
Again, the characters are really well written, full developed and so wonderfully endearing. I loved everything about them. I also felt for them as everything unfolds. I was completely invested in them and the outcome of their story.
A word of warning though- be prepared for a bit of a book binge, as you won’t want to put “Cade” down!
Can’t wait to see what Ms. Robert’s has in store for us next!

Thank you, Ms. Roberts!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cade (Default Distraction #3) by A.S. Roberts was a great 5 star read.

I was pulled in right from the beginning. Winter is planning an event for her brother’s band and when she has a meeting with the band Cade locks in on her. Cade is the drummer of the band who has a past of drugs, alcohol and lots of women. There has always been something between them following a brief relationship when they were younger and he has picked up on Winter’s vibes at the meeting, he sees the need in her eyes. Let’s just say he doesn’t let her get very far, he is right there trying to tempt her at every turn. He wants to have her again, to calm the burning attraction between them.

WIll one night be enough or will their past bring them back together?

I loved Cade and the dominant vibe he set off, you could feel the attraction between these two throughout the whole book. Winter was great as well, even with all that she had been through. I love bad boy rocker romances and this one didn’t disappoint. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. If you are looking for a great 2nd chance romance, 1-click and get started today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cade is the drummer of Default Distraction, and he is the son of a mafia boss. This complicates his life just a little bit. A.S. Roberts does an amazing job keeping this bad boy under control. Roberts’ characters all have their own little fire within themselves. That is what makes her stories attractive and keeps the reader want to keep reading to see what will be coming next. Winter is the younger sister of the lead guitarist and she doesn’t want anything to do with anyone. It is a good thing that Cade goes for what he wants and nothing gets in his way. I highly recommend this story as well as the first two books in this series. You will want to see what happens between Cade and Winter.

    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cade by A.S. Roberts is the third book in the Default Distraction series. Each of these books can be read as standalones although personally I think they are best read in order as you learn about the characters from the start.
This book is just brilliant. The characters have such an intense chemistry I could feel it in every page. Their connection was immediate and is definitely what drew me in to this story. Once I had started reading about them I simply couldn’t stop.
I am really enjoying this series. Each book seems to be better than the last, even when I can’t believe the author could make it any better. The stories and gripping and the characters are varied and interesting. I find they are all capturing my attention but all for completely different reasons. This is an extremely good series and one I would recommend.
