Marrying your rock star crush wouldn’t happen in real life, right?
Reese Montgomery’s family and friends dubbed her a schemer because of her love of strategy and planning. Taking a job as a social media strategist was right up her alley, until her boss sent her on tour with her teenage crush, rock star Sterling James. After a terrible first impression, her job is under threat and Reese needs to be a complete professional. Even when her feelings are anything BUT.
Rock star Sterling James is at a turning point in his career, but his negative image may hold him back. Hiring a social media strategist won’t change his emotional family crisis, but can hopefully help him put on a better public face. But he has little faith in Reese, at least at first. As she continues to prove herself, Sterling has another problem: he is falling hard for the sweet, scheming woman sharing his tour bus.
When his family problems come to a head at the same time as a PR nightmare, both Reese and Sterling will have a crisis of faith and a choice to make: career or love?
My #1, most favorite trope is when the out-of-your-league guy (or gal) falls for the regular Jane (or Joe). This trope is my favorite because I love that moment when the “popular” character finally sees the regular Jane (or Joe) as the truly wonderful person she is. I also love this trope because of the character evolution the “popular” character undergoes in order to become the man/woman the regular character deserves to have in his/her life. The best example of this trope will always be Jane Eyre, but Managing the Rock Star by Emma St. Clair is a pretty close second. Managing the Rock Star has everything I love in a story — a FANTASTIC storyline that’s so engaging, I read this book in one day, characters who are complex and endearing and relatable, and conflicts that kept me turning pages well into the night cause I just had to know how things would work out. If I had one complaint with this book it would be that it ended. Managing the Rock Star is a book I could read again and again. This is a must-read story! If you are a fan of super sweet, excellently written, inspirational Contemporary Romances, then make sure to check out Managing the Rock Star. Truly, this is a book I just cannot recommend enough!
