Editorial Reviews

Review

"Again, this is one of the most realistically-portrayed romantic stories I've read...the confusion, hope, heartbreak, betrayal - the emotional content is spot-on... don't skip it. It's GOOD." -Tammara Webber, New York Times bestselling author of Easy (Goodreads review)

"I can't recommend this book enough. If you are a fan of the music scene or ever just wondered 'what if' about a rock star, this is going tograb your attention and hold it from page one through the end." -Just Jump

"The book made me laugh and cry and I just couldn't put it down until Ifinished it. Would I recommend this to a friend? Absolutely! I recommend what I love and I truly loved this. I would give it 5 of 5 stars." -My Life, My Randomness

"The dialogue is sharp and witty ... People who love celebrity gossip and the music scene will love Rock Star's Girl." -The Chick Lit Bee

"Loved the characters, loved the story, loved the conclusion. Just an all around lovefest for this book." -Books Etc.

"Definitely worth the read. Fun, tumultuous and shocking (oh yes! There's even an "it's not you, it's me" moment... or two). I was aghast!! Offended!! Flabbergasted. Heartbroken... and as a reader... excited to be all of those things!" -Maryse's Book Blog

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$ !!!

Once in a great while, I buy a bad book. Rock Star's Girl hits that bid. Here's why:
* The characters in this book do not behave in a way that rings true in the 21st century.
* Not a single one of the characters appeals to me.
* the romantic scenes feature a lot of bizarre teasing and cuddling and t.v. watching -- are we at a grade school slumber party, or possibly living on the wild side in the 1950s?
* What a bizarre and dysfunctional love triangle. With one guy, she should cut bait -- she does not like him very much -- and the other guy doesn't like her enough (for good reason, she is needy and comes when called, which is lame).
* The ending deserves one word: huh? It's amateurish and not what readers pay for when they buy a NA romance.

The climate and description of Los Angeles -- the setting of this book -- now that does appeal to me. Here is a second star for making the characters' life in sunny LA seem attractive and accurate.

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.

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.

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......

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!
