Book Description

At nearly thirty, Audrey is stumbling through her own life. When she posts on Facebook her frustration at being laid-off, a long-lost childhood friend offers her a gig to photograph his wannabe rock band on tour. Her Brazilian mother believes it’s fate; Audrey believes it’s the power of DSL.

Inside a rundown Winnebago with the all-male band, her cynicism is only matched by her fear of being taken for a groupie. Despite her own resistance, she falls for the one member who keeps her at a distance. Then John writes a song that reveals his pent-up emotions for her and propels the band to instant stardom.

Audrey must choose between working with the band or pursuing her own accomplishments, a decision that creates room for the complications of fame to creep in between her and John. Despite their connection, they find themselves facing jealousy, betrayal, and a gut-wrenching sorrow that could unravel their relationship.

4.0 out of 5 stars When a love song goes viral July 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Success doesn't come cheap. One Hit Wonder follows a small time band on their journey from obscurity to instant celebrity and demonstrates the downside of being catapulted at your dream before you can even catch your breath. The irony is that the bonds they formed along the way are frayed and the deeply personal love ballad written by the band's leader for the woman he loves threatens the very relationship he celebrated in song. This is a moving story and you find yourself pulling for the characters to overcome their fame before it crushes them. You'll appreciate the romantic ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! August 23, 2012
By Elsie B
Format:Kindle Edition
Set in the difficult world of the music business, One Hit Wonder is a finely woven plot of a group of friends striving to realise their dream of making it in the music business and finding love along the way. The appropriately titled novel is a romance story laced with love, loss and finally finding ones' self and each other.
The heroin, Audrey is a typical young woman muddling through life, hoping to find her path. Cynical about love, her attraction to John came as a surprise and so did the love that followed. But as the saying goes, true love's course never runs smoothly and neither did that of Audrey and John. But like all true romance novels, the force of jealousy and the devastation of death could not keep the lovers apart in the end.
Densye's writing is witty, relatable and laced with humour. Not every writer can deliver all three in one book but she does this beautifully. Whether it's describing the band's run down Winnebago, aka tour bus or comparing Audrey's complicated love life to that of tangled Rastafarian's hair, she'll have you grinning every time you turn a page.
One hit wonder is a strong love story, we knew from the minute they met and the first spark went off that Audrey and John would end up together. It is the journey Densye takes us on before we get to that destination which is intriguing and makes this book worthy of your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One hit wonder is a story of hope as much as it is a story of a love that can't be harmed by fame or money. Sometimes, only when people lose everything Is when they open their eyes to the new possibilities in their lives. Audrey took a chance and she was rewarded with friendship and love, that in itself is a happily-ever-after worth reading, but denyse cohen added the friendships that shapes us, and a love story deemed to last forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music and Love October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading "One Hit Wonder" by Denyse Cohen. One Hit Wonder is a well written story about music and love. Getting the chance to be a part of the bands life on the road and getting to know the band members was very real. The behind the scenes look of how a band rehearses, performs live, records a music album, and makes a music video makes the story come to life. The love story between Audrey and John was sweet and slow. John was the hero in the story, who looked after the band members and Audrey. The heroine, Audrey was very fascinating and I enjoyed the photography asepect of the story. I look forward to reading more books by Denyse Cohen. I will recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining Despite the Editing Issues September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm always on the lookout for well-written romances involving rock stars, so was excited when I found this book. I really enjoyed the romance between John and Audrey. At first it seemed like their relationship got off to a too quick start, but as the story progressed they had more ups and downs that made the romance believable.
It bummed me out that the editor didn't notice and correct the various problems with verb tense (using simple past when past perfect should have been used -- I know, geeky but it did pull me out of the story a bit).
That being said, this book was filled with some very original metaphors and turns of phrase that made it fresh. I was definitely cheering for the main characters and invested in their HEA (happily ever after).

4.0 out of 5 stars One Hit Wonder September 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Audrey's at a crossroads. She's been laid off from the job she hated and has no idea what she wants to do next. So when her childhood friend, Matt, asks her to come on tour with his band to document their next trip, she grabs her camera, packs a bag and heads off to find her destiny.

And as she, Matt and his bandmates travel from town to town playing bars and local festivals, she and the band's leader John find themselves inextricably attracted to each other. And when a YouTube video of his love song to her goes viral, they find themselves catapulted from virtual obscurity to instant fame.

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to go tour with a band and if you're intrigued by the music business this book's for you. Cohen's no holds barred, realistic look at life on the road and at fame's destructive power, will leave you feeling like you went along for the ride.
