Summary

This is the boxed set of the popular Managed: A Rock Star Romance series. It includes all four books in the series.

Jasper and the Weeds are one of the hottest bands in rock music! Jasper, the lead singer has made the band an instant success. At one of his concerts, a well-known socialite from a popular TV series requests to see him, privately. She sets her latest fantasy on being the one to grace Jasper’s bed. Jasper is powerless to resist her beauty and sex appeal. 

Disaster strikes when she posts pictures of their intimate moments on social media. When his fans learn of the escapade, they quickly label him the bad boy of pop music. 

Hailey Finch works for a public relations firm and has received the assignment to work with Jasper to restore his public image. She's convinced that Jasper made a bad decision, but that one act shouldn’t cost him his musical career. Will she be talented enough to help restore Jasper’s image and win back his fans? Or will she find that instead, she is at risk of losing her own heart? 

Note: This series contains some adult situations. 18-plus, mature audiences recommended.

It passed sometime

My mind kept wondering whilst listening to this story. The characters and the story line just weren't strong enough to completley hold my attention. The story certainly doesn't justify being spread out over 3 books. There were inconsistencies through out the story, such as the main character claimed to maintain her figure because she likes to run, then later on she does yoga and no cardio. It honestly wasn't bad. It just wasn't good

Jasper and Hailey!

Managed 1 - Jasper is a famous rockstar but the pressures of being a celebrity, being controlled by his record label and his publicity hungry ex-girlfriend has become wearing. Hailey is Jasper’s PR rep and although he tries to keep her at a distance she starts to sneak around the walls that he has built.

Managed 2 – Although her boss wants to remove her from Jasper’s account he refuses but they have been warned that if they get personally involved Hailey will be fired so they are keeping their distance.

Managed 3 - Hailey realizes she needs to stand up for herself both from fellow co-workers, her boss and her friend. Jasper is realizing that Autumn is not the person he thought she was and he and Hailey are getting closer which is inspiring his creative side.

Managed 4 - Jasper continues to have girlfriend drama both from his current girlfriend and his ex. They have developed deep feelings for each other but will they ever be able to overcome their fears and insecurities so that they can finally be together?

I thought that the narrator did a great job of drawing you into the story and keeping you invested from beginning to end.

Great series

I love to listen to a great series with a beginning, middle, and end and this series did not disappoint. Jasper and Hailey are two characters that you want to see happy and their journey to HEA was amazing.

Delightful!

Jasper is a world famous rock star with his band, the Weeds, but his fame isn't always about the music, especially now that the record label has ordered his band to sing covers and other music that isn't created by the Weeds. How long can he continue being a sell-out? He's definitely a bad boy, some might say a manwhore, but the public has never really seen anything of the real Jasper, the caring man who still remembers what it was like to be bullied. He hasn't always used common sense when choosing a girlfriend and he's totally blind-sided by a sexy society girl with beauty and fame. Unfortunately for Jasper, she's also vindictive and, when he breaks up with her, she gets revenge by posting pictures of the two of them in compromising positions. Jasper's reputation is on its way to being destroyed and Hailey is hired as his new public relations manager to salvage what's left of his image and move forward. They work very well together and Jasper really loves working with the kids of Hailey's charities, going for walks and visiting with old people in the park. When it appears that Hailey and Jasper may be figuring out how much they really care about one another but, again, a new girlfriend, ex-girlfriend or even another man become part of the equation. These two may be great together, but they sure don't reason very well! If they don't stop assuming they know everything that's going on and talk about what's on their mind, they don't have a future. The first 3 books of this series were fascinating, even though I was starting to think that Jasper had frozen Hailey out and was simply "settling" with Autumn by the 3rd cliffhanger. Book 4 tied up the loose ends, but I didn't feel as if the story was complete. The ending felt a little rushed and I'd really like more closure. An extended epilogue, perhaps? This is another excellent series written by Clarissa Carlisle with an exceptional narration by Laurie West!

great series

I listened to all four books in one sitting. I'm happy I didn't have to wait for each one! Oh the cliffhangers! From start to finish, I was completely enthralled with Hailey and Jasper's story. There were moments I wanted to just shake the both of them. The teasing, the jealousy, their Emotions, their connection with each other is felt throughout the books. This is another great series by Clarissa Carlyle.
Laurie West narration is very good, Her ability to transition from one character to the other is flawless. I was gifted this audio and offered my honest review

Slow Burn Romance

This boxed set includes all four installments in the Managed Series, a Rock Star Romance series. Jasper and Hailey's slow burn story is sweet and easy to listen to. The storyline is filled with drama, and twists and turns. I love the HEA. Jemma, from Entertainment with Jem Series, makes an appearance is this series. I love these series interconnected. Laurie West did a good job with the narration.

Jasper & Hailey

Audible review. Love the boxset collection. 3 cliffhangers and a finale. This story gives readers insight into the management side of music. JP

Not your typical rock star romance

This is definitely the way to read this series - books 1 - 3 each have cliffhangers; with the set you can start at the beginning and just keep on reading (or in this case, listening)!! When reading the series, I didn't want to put any of the books down.
It was the same when listening. Managed 1 was easy to read and had a nice flow to it. This story is complete with a self-destructing rock star and a straight-laced PR rep who are fighting attraction. What story would be complete without the crazy ex-girlfriend? Well, book 2 sucked me in just as much as the first in the series. As with the first, I kept reading until I got to the end and then wanted to find out what happens next. There were times where I wanted to smack Jasper and Hailey for not opening their eyes to what was really going on. And don't get me started on Matthew... definitely don't trust him...Book 3 continued to pull me in. Hailey and Jasper have this chemistry yet obstacles stand in their way. Book 4 picks up right where book 3 leaves off and I wasn't expecting what they found (or should I say who they found). While the 4th book ties up many loose ends, it didn't compel me quite as much as the others. That said, I still didn't want to put it down once I started reading because I really wanted Jasper and Hailey to get past all the nonsense and accept their feelings for each other. I like how Clarissa handled some of the nastier characters and how Hailey developed over the course of the series. It was a long and bumpy road with lots of angst and drama for all involved. Managed has a blend of humor, drama, suspense, angst, heartache, hope, determination...and some sexy scenes, and of course the characters you love to hate. You'll definitely want to read this series in order. Overall I really enjoyed this series!
