About the Author
As a writer, BJ Knapp has created numerous corporate marketing pieces and contributed articles to Rhode Island Health & Fitness Magazine. Musically, she has composed a number of original songs of the angry-chick rock variety, which she proudly accompanies on her guitar.
Her time working as a DJ for her college radio station sparked her curiosity about the rock stars and one-hit wonders of the eighties, and this in turn inspired her to write Beside the Music, her first novel.
An avid sailor and scuba diver, BJ enjoys many outdoor activities, including hiking and geocaching, and has made hundreds of failed attempts at cooking. Her blog may be found at bjknapp.com.
BJ and her husband, Todd, live in Rhode Island with their two dogs, Nemo and Potter.

I love how the relationship between Brenda and Time develops. It is very plausible and has a huge dose of reality. The reality of living with aged rock stars seemed very believable as well.
This was an extremely fun, though not always uplifting, read. There are a lot of funny parts as well as the hurtful parts, but in the end, it's about life. And life is full of ups and downs. It's how you deal with them that makes or breaks you.
I would recommend this one to anyone who likes stories about musicians. I would definitely read more by this author.

Unlike many of the reviews, hilarious never once crossed my mind. Irritating did though...lots. No matter the infatuation, would any of us and/or our significant others reaaally put up with the crap Tim did Brenda did! I guess that is where the book is meant to be a comedy but it just fell flat for me. My reasoning for 3 stars, not 2, is that the concept was good in spite of it all.
As a final thought, the old rich mama-bear was so unlikable that she should have had an early exit.
