Rock Star on the Verge (Rogue Series Book 9) by Lara Ward Cosio

I have read every single book in this series and loved each and every one of them. I think this book is now my favorite and I hope to see more books in the future even if it’s the next generation.

First we get to see a grown up Donal grow up a bit more on his journey with Conor. Donal learns more about himself as a person and a musician. As well as learning more his Uncle Conor and developing a deeper relationship with him.

Then we get to see a side of Conor that rarely if ever comes out. He is going through a lot and needs to sort out.

I loved the rawness in Conor and watching Donal figure stuff out. They both get to view things from a different perspective and help one another more than either one would have ever thought.

I truly hope this is not the end of this series. I love each and every member of Rouge and I’m not ready to say bye.

Book 9 in the Rogue Series, Rock Star on the Verge by Lara Ward Cosio was simply an amazing adventure! I truly love this series and the depths that it goes to. This is not your typical “rock star” book. This story follow’s Donal, a 17 year old on the verge of turning 18 that has no care in the world except going to clubs and his following on Instagram. He wants to be a musician but doesn’t want to put the effort into it. Donal is also Martin Wheeler’s of Rogue’s son. Conor, the guitarist of Rogue is on a downward spiral of depression. Having just lost his father, he doesn’t have any enjoyment out of life anymore. So what do they do? Go on a motorbike trip from Ireland to Spain so that Donal can finally meet his girl and to find a sense of adventure. It will also help Conor do a bit of healing too. It was a really good book, as I couldn’t put it down! There are so many elements and emotions to this book it made you connect with it on a different level. I can’t say enough about this book and this series. I would definitely read the books from the beginning so you can have a background to place it all. However, I’m sure you get away with reading this by itself though. I can’t wait to read the next one to see where Donal’s career as a musician has taken him!

by Lara Ward Cosio

I have loved the Rogue series since I read the first book and this one is no different. In this book we get to watch Donal and Conor figure some things out. Donal Whelan is the son of Martin Whelan, a member of Rogue. Conor, Donal’s godfather has been depressed since his father passed away. These two end up on a road trip, they both discover new things about themselves and each other. This book is so well written, you can feel the emotions jumping off the pages. I was happy to see all the old characters we know and love in this book as well. This book can be read as a standalone but it is my suggestion that you read all of the books in this series so you have more back story of the characters and because they are all really great books! I can never get enough of this series and I hope it never ends. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this story, but I will say that this is a must read! I highly recommend this book.

Rock Star on the Verge (Rogue Series Book 9) by Lara Ward Cosio. Wow just wow. I’m finding a little hard to truly come up with the words to do this book justice in this review. From page one I knew I was in for quite the adventure with all these amazing characters. This coming of age story took me on a journey that had me on the edge of my seat more than once anxiously waiting to see what the next pages would bring. The attention to even the smallest of details had me in complete awe of this author and her writing style. The characters are complex and relatable making them seem very life like. The storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. Five big stars all the way and highly recommended. Can’t wait to see what else this author has to offer.

Rock Star on The Verge is the 9th book in the Rogue Series by Lara Ward Cosio. This series is set around Irish rock band Rogue, the band members and their families. I had read a couple of the earlier books in the series, those with Danny Boy’s story and really enjoyed them and was looking forward to reading another book in this great series.
This book is a bit different in that the romantic element totally takes a back seat, the book is much more of a coming of age story for Donal and a re-evaluation of life for Conor. I hadn’t read the books with Conor’s story but I really loved getting to know him in this book. It was hard reading about him struggling with depression after the death of his father after losing my own father to Covid recently but could totally understand what he was going through.
I absolutely loved the camaraderie between Donal and Conor as they went on their journey, literally and figuratively. Donal has always hero worshipped Conor and I loved reading about him getting to see the real Conor.
Another thing that I really loved about this book was seeing the other Rogue guys and their families again. There is such a great bond between them all and the support they give each other is fantastic (as are the put-downs they give each other too).
I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone considering reading it.

5 out of 5 stars

I have read every single book in this series a few times. I loved seeing the crew and what they have been up to and what trouble they are causing. I have always though that Gavin was my Favorite but nope Connor F###ing Quinn is my favorite. I loved seeing how Ms. Cosio has shown how the characters have grown and they still go through everyday drama. We have watched these guys grow from boys to men and their families grow. Now we get to see what the younger generation and if they too have musical talent like their famous fathers.
This story is about a journey for two lost souls. Connor has been feeling the blues for a while now and Donal Martins eldest son has been making a name for himself but not in a good way. Connor is turning 40 and felicity throws him a surprise party. At this party Connor and Donal are talking and Connor realizes that all their kids are living the privileged life even though Donal has lived the ridicule and scrutiny. So, Connor suggests a road trip what goes on, on the road trip is totally different than Donal is used to and not just that Connor is not acting himself.
I am going to end this review like this because you really need to read the story to find out what happens and what their Journey has entailed and where they go from there,

It’s never too late to discover yourself.

Connor is in a plato at the moment with life events catching up with him, turning 40 and losing his father he has kind of lost his purpose in life. Although his wife understands there is just no real drive anymore for his career until he takes his godson under his wing and they go on a road trip of discovery.

Dolan has been a part of the rock world ever since he was born, having everything handed to him, he does not seem to have the drive to make his band successful. His relationship with his father is rocky, so when his godfather and idol decides to go with him on a road trip to meet a girl he met online, they both discover things they didn’t know that they need to find within themselves.

This is the first story I have read within the Rogue series and I have to say although I followed the story and characters I would recommend reading the series from the beginning, I have missed the growth of these characters through each book and would love to go back to read them in the future to understand these complex characters.

Although I had not had the chance to meet them before this did not deter from the well developed story that was woven in the book, the relationship between the two main characters was heartwarming and believable. I loved the self discovery moments within the story as you are never too old to find yourself especially after tragedy. I would recommend this series to anyone who loves to read a great book and story.

I struggled to write this review. In one way it’s great to see all these guys again. I love seeing the camaraderie between all these characters. It’s cool that it’s still the same even though they are now older. But I feel it’s kinda sad that Conor and Felicity have already been through so so much and now…they are struggling again. I hate that! I know “it’s life and all” but if you have read these guys previous stories…they don’t deserve this. Even though Conor is spending time and kind of teaching Donal on their trip…it is just sad. I would think it could have been told without Conor trying to find the excitement in his life…again.

This story is told from varying point of views. We get to see most of the cast members tell a little bit from their side. But it mostly focuses on Donal, Conor and Felicity.

It is well written and I do like the vibe of the story near the end. Donals growth as a writer/ singer as I’m thinking we are being set up for second generation stories. I do like this series I just thought enough is enough with these poor characters. My heart can’t take anymore.

I am so upset, This is book 9 and I’ve only read book 4 before this. I swore I’d read them all before the next came out and I didn’t yet…This series is going at the top of my list to get read…I love love love these characters, its weird that after only reading 2 of the series I still am able to feel a connection to all of them, this for me is a sign of an awesome storyteller. I truly though need to have the complete history of this cast of characters. I feel such loss when reading things I should know about and don’t. Will have this completed by the end of this year.

I have a serious girl crush on Felicity, she is everything I know I could never be. The connection between her and Conor is out of this world beautiful. I could never see myself handling things the way she did in this book. My heart literally broke for Conor because you could almost feel his pain and confusion through the words written.

The journey this story took me on was like no other, and I enjoyed every single second of it from the places to the experiences, the laugh out loud moments and the deep conversations. Realizing what life really means for each of them. Finding what they each were missing and wondering the whole time, who is really helping who here. I love that this author made this a new generation / old generation coming together to teach each other very valuable life lessons. I also love that we get so many different POV’s throughout…I remember that being a favorite of mine in Book 4. I also loved the emotions that were brought about in this book.

I can’t recommend this book enough, I do however recommend starting at the beginning, don’t do what I’ve done, these characters are so tightly woven together you will want so much more as I do!

Can not wait for more and will absolutely be ready when the next one comes along 🙂

LOVED IT!!!
