a book in review!

Brief Summary:

Is life with a rock star ever normal?

Small town girl Jill Griffin has mastered the art of being invisible, so when she falls in love with sexy rocker James Sheridan, at first she is content to live in his larger than life shadow. Building a life together under the glare of the media is challenging, and further complicated by constant touring, James’ partying and the mixed signals she gets from James’ twin brother Alex. What is that guy’s problem?

When her poems and journal ramblings become the songs on James’ best-selling album, Jill has to step out of her comfort zone and figure out how to live her life in a spotlight all her own. As her professional success as a songwriter threatens her relationship with James, Jill begins to wonder if she can write love songs without the love of her life.


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was really intrigued by the summary of this book, I mean to have your poems become hit songs? What a cool idea! I was sucked in from the first page and couldn't wait to see how it ended. The story covers a good portion of Jill's life and you definitely go all long with her for every adventure. I recommend this 4 star book to anyone who likes books they can read in a day and you'll be on a journey in the rock star world with the characters the whole time, xo!
