Rocked by Love tells Jillian Braden and Johnny Bad’s story. Jillian, a sought-after fashion designer, was contracted to design outfits for Johnny’s band when they went on tour. However, with every scheduled meeting, Johnny cancels. Tired of his cancellations and not giving to consideration to her time, she confronts him to give a piece of her mind. However, on the day she confronts him, she stumbled into a situation that would bring unexpected but welcome change to her life.

Johnny didn’t believe his day could get any worse after discovering he had a teenaged daughter named Zoey, and that his manager, whom he trusted, had been stealing from him. Well, that was, until a beautiful and sexy fashion designer showed up at his penthouse to curse him out. To make matters worse, the paparazzi are dogging his doorsteps. He needs to get out of town to protect his daughter’s privacy, but he had no idea where to go. Then Jillian offers the perfect solution.


Rocked by Love is a beautiful story from start to finish. It provides readers with a story where romance blossoms and a father bonds with his daughter. The story captured my heart from the first chapter, and I couldn’t get enough of it. Honestly, I couldn’t wait to see how it would unfold. 

I enjoyed spending time with the characters and watching their relationships develop. Without a doubt, Jillian and Johnny belonged together. I especially loved the development of Johnny’s relationship with Zoey. Both relationships had a rocky start, which grew into a special bond as the story develops. Honestly, I didn’t know the direction Foster would take with the story, but I trusted her to deliver a story that would resonate with me and she delivered as expected.

Johnny and Jillian’s romance was steamy, with lots of heart. They encountered bumps along the way, but the strength of their love aided in a successful navigation. My heart ached for Zoey with all she went through before coming to live with Johnny. She was closed off, which was expected given all she had experienced. However, as the story progressed, we see her coming out of her shell and overcoming her painful past.

The family bonds, as usual, were delightful and heartwarming. Rocked by Love is the type of story that will keep you glued to the pages, and leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling
