Bobby and June were the best of friends as kids. For two years they spent every waking moment together. And just as they started realizing they had potential to be more, Bobby was unexpectedly uprooted to Las Vegas.

Fast forward fifteen years.

Bobby is now a guitar hero of a very successful rock band. June is wasting away, working at a local diner, and married to an abusive man. Devastating events send Bobby back to Texas to deal with some unsettled issues. When he runs into June, she’s all grown up. No longer that blonde haired, pig-tailed little girl—now she’s the Queen of the South with tanned legs, sexy curves, and more beauty than all the groupies combined. Problem is, June is a shell of her former self—that is, until—Bobby brings the spark back into her life.

What happens when a typical bad boy rocker comes across a sad country song? Why, you get the sweet sound of Rock Country.

***No cliffhanger*** This book is for mature readers only. Can be read as a standalone.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.


“I’m gonna catch you June, and when I do, I’m gonna shove this bug in your pants and watch you scream!”

What a great laugh out loud and open my heart start to a story!  Bobby and June Bug. They have been friends since forever. They have teased and played with each other and created a lasting bond. But, just as they are starting to mature and see each other as something different, there is an interruption to their story.

 15 years later…

“I’d thought about her every day. Hell, half my songs were in some way about her.”

Bobby is a rock star, but still thinks about June all of the time.  He still itches to find her. But what will he find?  He has dreamt of her, longed for her, written songs about her, and played the field trying to to find a substitute for her. 

“Who sighs in defeat on their wedding day?”

June is doing what everyone thinks is best for her life. She’s not so sure.  After making a commitment that will be hard for her to get out of, we know the reason for the sigh.  This is definitely not the life she had planned for herself.   

Success accompanies Bobby. Sadness plagues June.  For both of them their lives haven’t been what they’ve seemed, and we are with them as they start to deal with this new reality. Their initial reintroduction opens up the past and flashes a possibility of the future. Thrust together again in unlikely circumstances we can see that like sweet tea  is essential to southern living, some things don’t change.

“Bobby was the missing part of me and for once in my life I was starting to feel whole again.”

Numerous transformations begin to materialize, and we are never left doubting that Bobby and June love each other with all of their being. He is her safe place and she is his unmovable rock during one the hardest times in his life.  Seeing them become cocooned in one another throughout the story only makes our hearts swell as love and life collide to make Rock Country.

K. Webster wrote a beautiful friends to lovers story of true love finding its way home. I’m from the south and was immediately hooked by the southern undertone that played throughout Rock Country.  Because of this, I wasn’t far into the book when I became attached to June and Bobby. As children, I could hear them laughing and having fun together.  As adults, I became engrossed in their rekindled flame that, once lit, grew hotter and hotter.  Bobby Acer played me a country love song!  Sweet, sexy, and southern charm.  I was on Team June all the way!  Sharing in their moments of reconnection was heart warming.  Reading every instance of love and passion was the final push in my heart falling for them.  Rock Country also introduced us to several other characters and their side stories that added their own unique charm and feel to give a completeness.  I may be coming into this series late, but am excited that I get to dive into the next book without pause.
