Jax is arrogant and egotistical, an alpha male straight through to his core, but so damn hot, and Eve soon finds his relentless pursuit of her, harder and harder to resist.

But both hold tortured souls and secrets, secrets that could blow their whole lives apart…literally.

Except sometimes it’s not secrets or damaged spirits that threaten their relationship…it’s life itself.

Eve soon finds out that if you’re going through hell, then the only way out the other side, is to just keep going.

This book contains explicit sex scenes, strong language, Self harm and lots of heartache. And of course…one hell of an alpha male.

Shocking Heaven by DH Sidebottom teaser 1


book reviews strings

I kept seeing good reviews for the Room 103 Series when I first starting blogging in Sept/Aug. 2013. So I finally decided to  give it a try here recently. Now all I can say is, WHY did I not read it sooner??? Shocking Heaven is book 1 in the series. And it is absolutely AMAZING!!!!

There are several characters in this series. There is the band, Room 103, the Hero and Heroine, brothers, mothers, and even the British Mob!

Shocking Heaven introduces the reader to college students Eve and Jax. Thus, making this a New Age Genre read. Yet, this first novel covers around 5-6 years of time and contains a Part 1 and a Part 2. The whole novel is 50 odd chapters and contains a Prologue and Epilogue.

Every page takes the reader farther and farther into emotional situations. Let me forewarn you. If you are an emotional reader like I am, make sure you have lots of tissues handy. I am not ashamed (though my mother once told me it was silly for me to cry so over reading a book) that I had tears running down my face through the entire novel. Jax may play the guitar, but this novel really played on my heart-strings!

The Hero and Heroine hit nothing but brick walls all through the novel. Every time anything good seemed to be going either their way, they ladder of life would slide out from under them and they would be left dangling with a major life issue. Needless to say, Eve lives life according to her tattoos and lets nothing, NOTHING get in her way or slow or down. She is a very strong Heroine.

Both Eve and Jax come from very troubled and extremely unhappy families. Their childhoods were a struggle to survive. The two meet in college and well, you will just really have to read the book to see their adventure in Love.

Room 103 totally ROCKS!!! The novel is filled with mentions of music, and several that the band themselves wrote.

The theme of this book is to, NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Just read and find out what some of Eve’s tattoos say! They kept her going strong!!!


The author lives in England. So the dialect and the writing may confuse you a little. But, I know you can figure it out.

Just PLEASE read the novel if you have not already done so.

The New Age Genre is really not my go to read. I like my Hero and Heroine to be a little older. But this book did not disappoint in the least. It was very engaging and gave create details on the past of Eve, her brothers and Jax and his family life.

The ending will leave you happily surprised. Yes! That is the only spoiler I will give you!!!
