Book Description

** This book is suitable for most ages and does not contain explicit content. It explores dating themes and themes of romantic encounters and problems in romantic relationships, but is not category romance. **

Book 1 of the "A Hollywood Dating Story" series. The second book in this series will be published in 2015.

Emily Watts just wants a weekend break from the workaholic hours she's taken on to keep her business - a popular fashion-snark web site - up and running. What she gets is overnight celebrity and a career-killing media scandal.

While taking time out to attend a concert in support of friend Jesse Cinder, a struggling musician, Emily meets Cory Sampson, the lead singer of a chart-topping rock band. When she agrees to a date with Cory, making entertainment headlines is the last thing she expects. Even so, it's a minor surprise by comparison to her discovery that in the music world, media notoriety trumps all. Tabloid allegations erupt when Cory and fame-hungry Jesse use Emily for personal gain, and her tarnished image spells disaster - personally and professionally. To save the web site and writing career she's made her life and dream, Emily must go from being a pawn in the Hollywood headline game to becoming the media mastermind.

Previously published as J.F. Kristin.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun read September 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to read a story where the main character is 26 years old.

This book has that young adult feel, but is set around adult characters. They have jobs, responsabilities and their judgement is not clouded by their teenage hormones.

Emily Watts is a lovable character. She's a strong woman who has a head on her shoulder. I felt like she could've been one of my friend.

The love interest is everything you'd want but with a touch of reality, meaning that he is far from perfect. Something that is often missing in books. Aren't we tired of always reading about the perfect guy who says the perfect thing, who does the perfect thing, who looks perfect... Thank you J.F. Kristin for that touch of reality.

The ending surprised me, but I liked it. It's not what you'd usually expect and it was refreshing.

It's definitely worth a read. If only for it's entertainement value. Plus, if you're like me and you love storylines that involve Hollywood, celebrities, rock stars and actors you'll enjoy this book.

Best of all, it's only 0.99$ !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chick-Lit for the smart chick August 29, 2011
By Allaner
Format:Kindle Edition
Novelist J.F. Kristin and I have been friends since elementary school, and attended both high school and university together. Our friendship may be the reason I picked up "Rock Star's Girl," but it's not the reason I kept reading.

I had long since given up reading Chick-Lit, finding myself frustrated by the sheer stupidity of the characters in many popular novels of this genre (the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella comes immediately to mind). But Kristin's protagonist, Emily Watts, is no idiot. She's an educated, intelligent, and witty woman -- just like the author herself. Sure, Emily makes a few dumb moves in the game of love, but in the end her braininess takes the win.

"Rock Star's Girl" is a compelling, entertaining and amusing read. If you're in the mood for some light-hearted romance with a smart and savvy edge, I encourage you to pick it up. But be forewarned -- it's difficult to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, relatable and surprising November 9, 2011
Format:Paperback
Fun, relatable and surprising. I don't read chick lit often, so to capture my interest in this genre I have to be pulled in right away. Finally, we have a female protagonist (Emily Watts) who isn't lost, ditzy or dying for a man. Emily Watts is who I want to meet when I read chick lit - she's smart, focused and sarcastically funny.

The pop culture references incorporated by the author make the reading fun, relevant and light. It's visually very descriptive. I felt like I was following along the way in LA street by street and venue by venue. There are some great plot twists that I didn't see coming and felt totally satisfied at the end of this read.

I highly recommend this book for those who like chick lit and those who read it on the fringe. It's like a little candy for the brain.

4.0 out of 5 stars good one September 1, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The sample hooked me in...and I read the book cover to cover in 24 hrs! This novel works for teens and adults. Its writing style is relatable to our current environment, and i enjoy the banter Emily shares with her dates, she has a good sense of humor. But I am surprised that the author didn't elaborate on Emily's outfits, considering Emily is a fashion writer in Hollywood! I would've also like more descriptive views of Cory & Jessie's appearances (outfits, etc) throughout. The ending is very unexpected...you always expect the girl to end up in love right? I look forward to the author's next......

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, wasnt expecting the ending! July 15, 2012
By SanLou
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really good book! Very enjoyable, don't know if I'd read it again, but the first time reading it was very good! Ok so quick summary Em is good friends with Jesse (although it never explains how they met or why they are such good friends or even how they are such good friends, considering he lives in New York and she's in LA, but anyways) who is in a band - cant remember the name. She goes to see said band and meets Cory, who is the lead singer in a really big band- again cant remember the name! Anyways she starts hanging out with Cory and ends up getting loads and loads of media attention, which is all great till Cory backs off, says he doesnt want to be Bf/ gf, and thats it from Cory for the min. In steps Jesse, has recently moved to LA with his band and new manager, takes Em out for the night to help her feel better, but the media are still interested in her and snap her with Jesse, so suddenly she's cheating on Cory, has a dedicated Cory fan base dissing her on the street and Oh ya, her career is seriously suffering from this mess of a social life!

Ya loved this book, it just doesnt turn out as expected at all, which actually is great. The ending is really satisfying, a real - you go girl! book. The only thing I didnt like was that Em really didnt listen to her friend Shelby at all. Although I completely understand, you can't tell people things they have to make their mistakes and learn for themselves, this is especially true when it comes to affairs of the heart. So although Em was annoying me that she wasnt listening to Shelby's obviously very good advice, it was quite realistic! What girl hasnt been caught up in some lad, she thinks is fab, only to find out- ya he's a complete idiot!!

Get is, buy it, I shall be recommending it to friends!
