Review: How To Catch A (Rock) Star by Gabrielle Aquilina







Blurb:

A story of sex, love and rock 'n' roll

Aspiring singer Lillie and American rock star Jed seem like the perfect fit from the moment they meet. The pair are inseparable, but Jed’s jet-set schedule of shows and after-parties limits the amount they can see each other. So when Jed invites Lillie to sing with his band on their tour, she says yes. Yes with some hesitation, that is. After finding out that her ex-boyfriend was hiding away a wife and child when they were dating, Lillie’s trust in men is fragile and she also suffers from severe stage fright. As the tour progresses, Jed and Lillie are fast becoming rock’s hottest couple but with obsessive fan girls, a claustrophobic tour bus and a resentful guitarist, things start taking a turn for the worse. Lillie’s dream of singing may have finally become a reality, but can it last? The odds are stacking up against them and then the unthinkable happens…


Review:

The first thing that drew me to this book was the cover, yes, I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but that's always what catches my eye first. It was probably the heart if I'm honest, yeah it was the heart...


After that... Not so much. I kept picking up the book and putting it down, which is very rare for me! Usually I have my eyes glued to the page, fighting sleep just to finish it. This one well, within a few lines I was boarding a train to snooze-ville, totally passing my regular book-insomnia-ville...

The book felt, plain. It didn't hold my attention, I couldn't relate to the characters, their dialogue didn't feel real. I just couldn't finish it.

So, with a heavy heart I'll have to put this book aside. Which I hate doing, because always want to know the ending...

I also feel as if I'm missing something, it's as if everyone else had a map and struck gold when they read this book... I'm convinced I was given some sort of faulty map, maybe with indelible... Maybe I was supposed to read it on a full moon...
