Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn
“Asher Pratt had been a drug for me, and I wasn’t sure I wasn’t still addicted.”
Chelsea Whitaker works as a waitress at Tapestries, a trendy Pittsburgh bar. She’s doing her best to avoid Asher Pratt, the Pittsburgh rock legend who shattered her heart years ago.
When he takes a job at Tapestries just to be near her, Chelsea has some decisions to make.
She soon discovers that some things never change. It’s all she can do to keep a tight hold on her heart as Asher takes her for another wild ride.
As she struggles to gain some perspective on their relationship, she learns that he’s never needed her more. She must put the past aside for the sake of the future.
First things first I want to thank the author for providing me with an ARC copy of this book to read for this tour.
Secondly, it’s taken me a couple of days to think of what to put due to the emotional wreck this left me as…… thank Shari 🙂
Although I thought this book was fast paced, I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. Will there be a prequel as I would of loved to read about Chelsea & Asher from the beginning 🙂
I loved the characters, Willow cracked me up at times.
The story itself was ok 🙂 some parts dragged but this didn’t deter me from reading 🙂
I read this quite quickly to be honest, I couldn’t put the damn thing down!
Having a figure in your life runaway and leave with out note or anything, then unexpectedly returning, can seriously mess you up, so I can understand Chelsea’s pain and anger towards Asher!
I laughed when I heard his full name “Asher Pratt” Ha!Ha! I though this was very fitting for a gut like him……playboy type all over!
Yeah, so what if he’s drop dead gorgeous, or a awesome singer in a band……who am I kidding, everyone including me clearly wanted to jump his bones!
“She’s my fire, the air that I breathe.
My heart stopped in my chest.
When I wanna give up, she makes me believe.
I shivered, though I wasn’t cold.
I am ten feet tall with her by my side.
Lovin’ this girl is a wild ride”
What peeked my interest more, was the lovely, the kind hearted Tage 😉 *sigh* Please can I have one for Christmas?
This guy is a total rock to Chelsea, and she deserved better from the “Pratt” before 🙂
Just when the caterpillar thought life was over, it turned into a beautiful butterfly.
Be warned though!! Although there isn’t any crying at this point, you will need your tissues at the ready as at about 60-70% of the book, it all goes downhill for Chelsea!
Like seriously rock bottom. The shit hits the fan!
And I’m still reeling from the aftershock of my emotions and i read this over a week ago!
Definitely worth the read!
Swept away by the emotion of the moment, I threw my arms around Asher’s neck and gave him a big squeeze. Almost immediately, I realized I was in trouble. I tried to step back, but one arm went around me, locking me solidly against his body as he stared into my eyes.
I blew out a breath mingled with a tiny, pathetic squeak as I was absorbed into those damned orbs of his. Asher’s lean body pressed the entire length of mine was causing fireworks to shoot off inside my skull.
Still, I might’ve been okay if he hadn’t dropped one hand to cup my ass, pulling it against the raging hard-on he had. My mind automatically pictured him naked, thought of what he’d done to me with that cock. And those hands and that mouth…
Though I write contemporary romance under the name Shari Copell, my real name is Sherry Jesberger. I write a historical fantasy/paranormal romance series under the name S.L. Jesberger.
I am an eleventh generation native of Pennsylvania. My husband Gordon and I raised three lovely daughters, one of whom designs my book covers. Another daughter drew the map in the front cover of my historical fantasy series.
I’ve always had stories swirling through my head. Crazy stuff, totally whack situations. I was a voracious reader as a child, choosing to escape into the world of books. I wrote stories when I was a teen, but quit as I grew up. (Keep in mind, there were no computers then. Writing a book or story consisted of a brand-new notebook and a ballpoint pen.) I found some of these early stories as I cleaned out my grandmother’s house after she passed. Unfortunately, I threw them away.
I started writing again in 2012 after my husband lost his job. Aislin of Arianrhod was published in October of that year. I immediately began to work on the second book in the series, Winter’s Child.
Sometime in the middle of writing Winter’s Child, I had the inexplicable urge to swear like sailor, use modern vernacular, and write steamy sex scenes. I was amused and tried to push it aside. The language in a historical fantasy is obviously much different from a contemporary romance, so I had to behave myself.
I finally just thought, fuck it. I’ll do it. It was during that time that I started to write “Micah’s Island.” I simply needed to purge the wild story that had taken over my brain by then. It was so much fun to write. What would happen if you met a man who had never seen a grown woman before?
I chose the pen name Shari Copell because Micah’s Island was so very different from the Àlainnshire series. Copella was my grandmother’s maiden name—I just dropped the A.
For the most part, people seemed to like Micah, though he was a man of few words. I got some nice (and not so nice) emails about it, mostly from people wanting a better ending. I promptly wrote them one.
I wasn’t sure I would ever write another contemporary romance until Rock’n Tapestries dropped into my head, nearly complete from beginning to end (though I did run some things past Tara Chevrestt, who edits for me. Her suggestions were invaluable.) You just have to indulge your muse when that happens, as it doesn’t happen often.
Though the names and situations have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent, some of the things in Rock’n Tapestries were things that actually happened to me. My husband was wearing a bass guitar the first time I ever laid eyes on him. As Chelsea says of Tage, “ I think I might’ve had to scoop my jaw off the floor.” He’s the skinny dude in the gray tank top and orange guitar on the far right in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lXGyaHNWRI
I hope you’ve enjoyed Rock’n Tapestries. I’m currently having a blast working on a book about Nicks Sorenson, Asher’s daughter. I love this girl! It should be out sometime in 2014.
In the meantime, rock on!

Wild Angel (A Rock’n Tapestries novel, #2) – Coming 2014
A young guitar prodigy trying to discover who she really is. A husband fighting to hold his family together. A wife struggling with the feelings she has for a musician who’s been dead for nearly nineteen years.
And a man who will battle from beyond the grave to protect his only child.
Nicks Sorenson, guitarist extraordinaire for the band Wild Angel, has a lot going on during her last year of high school. In fact, she sometimes wonders if someone has painted a bull’s eye on her forehead.
Stone Jensen, lead guitarist for the band Heavy Remedy, shows up everywhere she plays despite the bad blood between them. The high school principal is targeting her with endless detentions for some reason. And she’s starting to think maybe her mother is losing her mind.
A dream seems to set inexplicable events in motion. Things get even weirder when she learns the name of the man who willed her the four guitars she now owns.
Nicks Sorenson is about to find out what you don’t know can hurt you.
