Birdie comes from a well-off family and is about to get married to a man, who, just like her father, cherishes traditional household and gender roles. Birdie, however, has other plans than to quit her internship in a producing company and start having children right away, and accepts an offer to go to LA to start a project that will change her life forever…
I really liked Birdie; she is a sort of a rebel confined in a ‘good girl’s’ body. She turned out to be much tougher than she thought she was, and that’s a sign of great character development. Kevin, the leading singer in a rock band, was another wonderful character, very far from the regular clichés that authors normally use portraying rock stars. All these components indeed made this novel an extremely engaging, refreshing read. Five stars!
Birdie hasn’t had many experiences and is, in many ways, naive in her thinking. When she has to travel to LA to do a segment on an up and coming Rock Star, she agrees only because she has been promised that in return she will be able to pursue her passion project.
Focused on her pet project, Birdie mistakenly makes assumptions about Striker, the handsome man she was sent to interview, and almost ruins the deal to the point where she would have to return home. She makes amends and finds out, as she spends time with him, that Striker is man of integrity and depth. Their connection grows into something undeniable but is, at the same time, inappropriate as Birdie is engaged to be married.
This story touches on companionship, honesty, infidelity, personal growth and loss. The author blends all of these emotional issues into a very positive and engaging story. My favorite scene is when Birdie’s boss explains how love should be. The image of his hands clasping as he gave his thoughts on love touched me, and I appreciated that tender moment as a reader.
Birdie's been an intern, getting little pay, for years until she finally lands a job producing a documentary about a rock band. Her immediate reaction is, "What rock band ever contributed to the improvement of society?" She's about to learn the answer to that and so much more--that perhaps the idyllic life she's lived isn't so wonderful.
I think the major theme of the story, however, relates back to her company vision about changing the world, which begins with changing yourself. As she reviews the documentary about Bernard Klausner, his words touch her soul: “Are you going to be true to yourself or be true to someone else’s idea of you?”
The author has woven this theme throughout the story, making this romance have substance. It’s not hopping into bed from one scene to the next. In fact, there are no sex scenes. Instead, it has the classic romance elements readers of this genre love: an unhappy relationship, passion and understanding, learning to understand your own needs to become your own person. A pleasant read that leaves you with a good feeling.
This was a very captivating story that reminded me some of the best classic romance books that I have red.
This is pure romance with the emphasis on pure. It is a short story perhaps too short for me. It is very classy and in no way stereotypical of what the protagonist rock star should behave like. Likewise the character Birdie is complex and her character unravels, beautifully.
It is a pleasant journey of self discovery, feelings that surprise, and a delightful journey between two people who were not really made for each other...or were they?
Highly enjoyable read and worth five stars.
