Rafferty by A.S. Roberts
Five Stars

Rafferty is the second book in the Default Distraction series by A.S. Roberts. This is one of my favorite series. I really enjoy the interaction between the main characters. This story had me hooked from the very first page and held my attention until the very last page. The books in this series coincide in the same time frame so they don’t have to be read in order but I highly recommend that you read them because they are all five Stars. This is Rafferty and Lauren’s story, which is full of heartwarming and heart wrenching emotions. This book left me with all kinds of feels. I highly recommend and can’t wait for the next book this series.

4 stars

This is the second book in this series and while I did read book 1, you don’t need to to read this one as it’s about another couple and this is also happening at the same time as book 1.
Raff, at first I had a hard time figuring him out and what happened in the past. He was quickly easy to cheer for as I understand male pride, he reminds me of my husband!
Lauren, oh my heart broke for her in a few instances. She came out stronger and guarded but seems to jump to big conclusions without asking for answers.

These two had me as their cheerleader through the whole book and I really can’t wait to read more of this series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read a couple of books from this author and she continues to blow me away. My two favorite genres are rockstar and second chance romance. This book has both and I absolutely loved it. This is the second book in the Default Distraction series.I was so excited when this book came out I dropped everything and started it right away. I was hooked on the first page. These characters grabbed me right from the start. It only took me a full day to devour this incredible book.

Rafferty has it all money, cars, and women all over him. He is a member of a number one band called Default Distraction. Raff had it all when he was younger but he let her go. Now he can’t get her out of his head. He still can’t get over Lauren. Raff is off to his hometown to relax but he can’t because he can feel her. He is shocked when he runs into her unexpectedly. She is even more beautiful than he remembered. Raff is so excited to tell her that he wants another chance but Lauren wants nothing to do with him. Will Rafferty be able to tell Lauren the real reason he left or will she walk away from him for good?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, heartache, forgiveness, and love. You can not help but to fall in love with these characters. Rafferty is rich and famous but he doesn’t take it for granted. He loves his job. Raff wants Lauren back and he will anything to make it happen. Lauren is a beautiful woman that is very independent. She was heartbroken over Raff and she never wants to feel that pain again. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. I can’t wait to see what will happen next in this incredible series.

5-stars

Rafferty is the second novel in the Default Distraction series. The timeline for this novel occurs along with that of the first book in the series. There were several scenes that occurred in this book that also occurred in the first. I liked that about this novel. With that being said, I do feel that it could be read as a standalone. There is enough detail for the main characters of this second novel to keep the reader from being confused. Raff and Lauren were madly in love until he left her. Now he has moved back and all the pain and emotions Lauren has held back have spilled over the dam. I loved watching the two fight their love and then slowly rekindle it. The story was very easy to follow and was addicting from the cover to the end. It easily deserves 5-stars and I look forward to more in this series.

Rafferty is the second book in the Default Distraction Series by A.S. Roberts. It is a fantastic Rockstar romance full of emotion, angst, drama, secrets, lies, betrayal, heartbreak, humour, second chances, love, passion, chemistry, and lots more.
Rafferty is the lead guitarist in the band, Default distraction. He, along with his fellow bandmates reached superstardom- playing sold out arenas and gaining fans, fame and massive fortunes. But his life is overshadowed by memories of the woman he walked away from at the beginning of the bands rise to fame. He can’t stop thinking about her and desperately wants to make everything right. But she’s not interested in have her heart shattered again and has worked incredibly hard to rebuild her life after he left her broken. But a when fate thrusts them together again, will they rekindle their love, or has too much time, secrets, lies, and heartache passed for them to ever get over?
Ms. Roberts writes so beautifully- she has a real talent for getting her story and characters to really connect with the reader, pulling us in and captivating us with her words. The energy and tension she creates in her stories, and between her characters, is truly masterful. I can’t imagine anyone reading her stories and not enjoying every single moment.
The characters are really well written, fully developed individuals, with their own quirks and flaws- which makes them very endearing. I loved catching up with the other band members, as well as meeting the other secondary characters. There is sooo much to love about this book. You really should read it for yourself and discover all the emotive and sexy details for yourself. But be prepared for a book binge, as you won’t want to put it down! I read it in one session, staying up long past my bedtime just so I didn’t have to put it down before knowing how it played out.
Can’t wait for the next book!

Thank you, Ms. Roberts!

I could not wait to read this book as well as any book by this author and once again I was not disappointed. I loved Rafferty in the 1st book, then disliked him immensely at the beginning of this book then as I read on he started melting my heart and by the end I of course loved him again 🙂

This book runs pretty much parallel with Brody and it was kind of awesome, luckily it has not been that long ago that I read Brody so I picked up on the same time frame pretty quick. Lauren was awesome but she literally ticked me off during most of the book. Really?! I mean I understand the hurt and the fear of trusting again but communication would have solved so so much!

I love the concept of this series. I’m not normally a fan of books involving bands and such but how this author handles this one has me totally invested in all of these people. The secondary characters are beyond awesome and I can not wait to see who gets to tell their story next.

Loved it and highly recommend reading both books so far in this series.

Rafferty (Default Distraction Book 2) by A. S. Roberts is a beautiful second chance romance story and one that will keep you thinking about the book long after you have put it down. This is the second story in the series and I have been waiting with baited breath for it to come across my lap. A.S. has written another winner with her amazing characters and vibrant details that make the story pop off the page. Trust me you will want to read the first book in this series Brody as it is a series written about a rock band and each of its members. It’s the little things that A.S. does so well her characters ooze sexy and broody like no one. I mean who doesn’t love a Rockstar, who is sooooo sexy and steamy. Trust me ladies you do not want to miss this series.

Rafferty (Default Distraction Book 2) by A.S. Roberts is book about lost love and second chances. Rafferty walked away from Lauren when he entered the music world to follow his dreams. Default Distraction has made it big and Rafferty still longs for Lauren and she will always be who he longs for. When fate brings Lauren and him together, he vows that this time he is not letting her go. Lauren lost a part of her heart the day Rafferty walked away from her. It took her a long time to rebuild her life again and now he’s back and wants her. And right now, she’s not sure she can open her life and heart again.
These two characters quickly dragged me into their world and I could not put this book down. I wanted these two to find happiness in each other so badly, as every emotion that they felt I could feel, I felt the pain, the happiness, and felt the confusion of Lauren. This book is a MUST read!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rafferty by A.S. Roberts is book two of the Default Distraction series. I highly recommend reading book one before reading this book because beside being a great read itself, it will give you an introduction to many of the characters you see in book two. Also, there are some scenes in book two that you will have seen in book one just from a new point of view.

Lauren has had her heart broken but she’s moved passed it and has become a successful business owner. Rafferty is past or Default Distraction and they are back in town. Lauren resolves to stay away from anywhere they may be. She worked hard to rebuild her life and she doesn’t want to risk getting hurt again. Rafferty knows the mistake he made but will Lauren give him another chance?

This book is an emotional roller coaster but you truly feel like you feel what the characters are feeling. I could feel Lauren’s pain but I wanted happiness for both Lauren and Rafferty. I absolutely recommend this book!!

Four Stars

I couldn’t imagine going through life the way this couple has. The uncertainty and pain. Knowing that you will never love another the way you love them. The author showed us that no matter the situation there can be something beautiful that comes out of it. That even though you’ve given up on a HEA that doesn’t mean there isn’t one coming your way. I liked Raff because he knew he needed to change and he did. I liked the band mates because they changed as a unit. Loz was an ok character she chose silence and revenge over talking. She wanted to hurt him. I know not everyone is straightforward but to take the words of a child to heart without bringing it up to the other person is stupid. She didn’t want to break his trust. That’s hogwash. Overall a good story though.
