Out of Play Blog Tour with Jolene Perry & Nyrae Dawn! Top 10 Hottest Rock Stars


I’m so happy to be on this tour! I loved Out of Play! Jolene and Nyrae have written two incredibly awesome characters and a story that I fell in love with.

Because Bishop is the eptiome of the hot - bad boy rock star, I asked Jolene and Nyrae to name their top 10 hottest rock stars.

(Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of this post! You could win an annotated bound copy of Out of Play or one of 3 e-books!)

Top 10 Hottest Rock Stars

Jolene - (I’ll do 5 and then Nyrae can have five ;-) 

  • Kurt Cobain. Yes. I’m a product of the nineties. But those EYES…
  • Bono. Yeah. He’s getting older, but seriously, anyone who can save the world and sing and play the guitar??? Hot.
  • Chris Martin of Coldplay. It’s the lyrics. Because they make me swoon.
  • Sam Endicott from the Bravery. It’s the jaw and the hair. Yum.
  • Okay. Not a rock star but I may have a crush on Justin Timberlake…

(I’m really banking on Nyrae putting Adam Levine on this list…)

Nyrae - Sigh. Jolene steals ALL the good rock stars! LOL. Just kidding.  

  • Eddie Vedder. When the album Ten came out I had the hugest crush on him. That voice. Mmmmm.
  • Adam Levine. Yeah, Jolene was right. Whatever ;)
  • Bobby Long. Yes I know he’s not a “rock” star as in a band and all that but he’s GORGEOUS, and deep and an old soul and…British accent. Enough said.
  • You guys, totally don’t laugh at me for my list but I’m also going with Bret Michaels. He was my first crush! I went to a Poison concert when I was way too young to go to a Poison concert and I cried and cried because I thought I was watching my future husband on stage!
  • Bon Jovi. Come on, you can deny he is sexy!!
  • And I am totally adding one more. Since Bishop is a hot drummer, I have to add another hot drummer so I’m going with Travis Barker.

0-6Summary: Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a drug problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—just need a little help taking the edge off sometimes. After downing a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska.  Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers to all the best schools, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absentminded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered to come home from work, let alone deal with their new tenants next door. Penny’s not interested in dealing with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps and begins to see what he’s been missing. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

0-7About Nyrae: Writing has always been Nyrae Dawn’s passion. There have been times in her life where she wasn’t able to chase that dream the way she desired, but she always found her way back to telling stories.
One of her loves has always been writing about teens. There’s something so fresh and fun about the age that she loves exploring. Her husband says it’s because she doesn’t want to grow up. She doesn’t think that’s such a bad thing and luckily for her, he doesn’t either.
Nyrae gravitates toward character-driven stories. She loves going on emotional journeys with characters whether it be reading or writing. And yes, she’s a total romantic at heart and proud.
Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.
When she’s not with her family, you can be pretty sure you’ll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her.
She writes for Entangled Publishing, Grand Central Publishing and is self-published.
Nyrae is represented by Jane Dystel of Dystel and Goderich Literary Management. Nyrae Dawn also writes adult romance under the name Kelley Vitollo. ~ website | blog | twitter | facebook | goodreads .

0-8About Jolene: Jolene grew up in South-central Alaska. She’s lived in Anchorage, near the Alyeska ski resort, on a cabin on an island on a lake, and then in a boring old house.
Jolene kissed a boy on her high school graduation night. One she’d wanted to kiss for a long time. They got married two years later, have built two homes together, survived military deployments, law school, student loan debt, and two children.
Jolene plays the guitar, takes pictures, and loves to hike. She doesn’t like rivers, but loves the ocean. She loves to fly, but gets motion sick. Her ultimate vacation would be to sail through the deserted islands in The Bahamas. Two years ago, she got that wish when her parents retired on a sailboat.
She taught high school French when she was only a few years older than her students, and then taught middle school math with her degree in political science and French.
She spends grocery money on designer fabric, shoes, and books. Jolene cannot express how many times she wished she could write a whole novel. And now she has. Many times. Life is good. ~ website | blog | twitter | facebook | goodreads

  1. Hm, who would my hottest rock stars be..*thinking*

    1. The guys from my era were Leif Garrett & David Cassidy lol Although honestly looking back I still stand by David - he was hot!

  2. Ohh, Kurt Cobain and Kris Martin would totally be on my list, and I have this thing for Steven Tyler, despite his age. I mean, he just has so much charisma! He makes me swoon. :D
    And of course, there's Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Tiny and energetic.

  3. Kurt Cobain and Jon Bon Jovi -- *swoons* Yes, I'm a product of the 80's. What can I say?

  4. Mmmm yes, Eddie Vedder. Yes, yes. I'm so in love with him, back in the 90's? *Swoon* Huge crush.

    One sexy rock star M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. He is hawt!

  5. Fun guest post! I do agree with Kurt Cobain and Jon Bon Jovi (he's so adorable- STILL!! Plus, he's in one of my fave movies- Cry Wolf).
