Ok, now that I mostly got that out, damn it all to heck! Why, Sky, oh why would you do that?!

This is pretty much my reaction to the book. All. Throughout. The. Book.


One Night With a Rock Star is an epic tale of meeting someone who you have dreamt about for a while, then falling in love with them, then having them ripped away for you. But, a

Wow, I'm not sure where to begin. ONE NIGHT WITH A ROCK STAR by CHANA KEEFER is now on my list of all time favorite books. What an honor and privilege to have read this captivating story.

The prolog had me a little confused, as they often do. I then moved on to the story where I was immediately swept away. There's something to be said about first person, and MS. KEEFER did an amazing job. The one thing I don't like about first person is the lack of the hero's perspective. What MS. KEEFER did in r
I love to discover authors that are new to me. So when I saw the title of this book (One Night with a Rock Star) and found out that it was a free download I hoped I was in for a treat.

You see, I didn't read any of the reviews, I was expecting the usual hard and heavy sex, tattooed bad boy meets (mostly) good girl and shows her what's she's missing! Instead I discovered something totally different but that still held me enthralled from beginning to end and that I could barely put down until I had
Wow what an amazing book. It had everything, heartbreakingly sad moments that made tears well in my eyes, happy loving moments that made tears well in my eyes, and anxious scary moments too. People need to read this book, you will feel everything in this book.
It was beautiful ending. I got excited to see a sneak at the sequel until it ended where it ended. How Gould the author leave us there. My heart is left in the pit of my stomach. I hope the next book is out now or soon.

Intro: Good, Country-bred girl meets the Rock Star of her dreams and worlds collide.

For Esther Collins, struggling journalism student and mediocre print model, international singing star Sky has been the ultimate male since she sported frizzy hair, braces and too-skinny legs. She has dreamed of meeting this icon countless times. But life has a way of happening when you least expect it
This book was a change from what I normally read. The difference was that this book does not contain sex or violence. In fact it is totally free from all of the stereotypical stuff found in regular rock star books. I liked it was different and I could read it without worrying if my children were going to see it or not. However I like the dark stuff it adds to a story but it didn't deter me either way.

A girl is a homebody who never changes her routine for anyone. She is nerdy, and an all around g
I came to know Ms. Chana Keefer through her awesome Christian fantasy novel THE FALL, which retells the story of Lucifer, Adam and Eve through the eyes of Rapha, an angel who was once Lucifer's best friend. When I heard that she was getting ready to release a book called ONE NIGHT WITH A ROCK STAR, I felt like I was gonna be in for another treat. I'm a huge rock fan and a follower of Christ, so this book sounded like a must-read. And believe me, it is. When I got the chance to read it in advance ...more
"One Night With a Rock Star" is such an intriguing title...most of us at one point in our lives could have inserted a famous name readily into that role, and fantasized about the possibilities. In ONWARS, Esther has to make a difficult choice as a young girl faced with a dream come true, colliding with the hard truth of giving away her innocence to achieve that dream...or does she? What would it feel like to try being true to your beliefs in the face of the greatest possible temptation? Esther s ...more
What does a 20 year old Christian woman do when she gets to meet the man of her dreams--a gorgeous, talented rock star, whose lifestyle leaves no room for God or faith? If they fall in love, will she abandon her faith and all her Godly convictions so she can fit into his rock star life? Or will her convictions change his mind and heart? This is such an angst-filled/hope-filled/fantasy-filled love story and well worth the read. I'm so impressed by Chana Keefer's storytelling and creation of lovab ...more
It is very slow and feels like the story is dragged on a bit and had to flip through it .No cliffy on this one but there is a sequel and not out till 2015.
*sigh* I don't even know where to begin.
<3 LOVE LOVE LOVE <3 This book!!!

I found this book through my Bookbub emails and the title captured my attention immediately!
What can I say without giving away too much?

What is a 20 yr old Christian girl (Esther) to do when she literally meets the ROCKSTAR (Sky) of her dreams and they actually form a connection? How does faith play into all of this? How does she walk away or does she? ;-)

I laughed, I cried, I got angry and even yelled out loud at Sk

I was truly surprised how much I enjoyed One Night With A Rock Star.

I had read some of the reviews and was a little apprehensive but I truly could not put it down! Not my regular reading material there is no sex what so ever but I could feel the yearning in Esther as she stopped fighting the feelings every young woman feels.
I felt it was a well explained story after I accepted so much of the story was Esther's faith in God. And I felt every emotion Esther felt with her fascination and crush on S
What a refreshing romance! Now I'm one who does enjoy a Christian romance once in a while, but sometimes find that they are not quite steamy enough. This one changed my mind! While it was still innocent and pure, there was a lot of emotion and passion portrayed on these pages. Sky was a dominating character who made you want to get to know him better. Esther was a girl who was trying so hard to stay true to herself in the face of so many changes and challenges. Keefer did a fabulous job of creat ...more

This book is in my top five of my all-time favorites. The story is absolutely incredible and I loved every second of it. What an awesome love story between two very special characters and between them and God.

I read it the other day for the second time and enjoyed it even more. Caught many things that I did not the first time around.

I highly recommend this book. Grab a box of Kleenex and settle in because you will not want to put it down until you have completed it!!!

Chana...what can I say? You
To begin I must explain myself for a moment. I've never been the person who "stays in bed all day reading a good book". I actually often tell of how reading is difficult for me and I can't seem to make myself do it even though I think books are wonderful. I have had a distinct disconnect with reading since fourth grade. I maybe read one book a year, or get a chapter or so in and give up... So, when I say that I sat up all night enthralled by a book to the point of words blurring before finally g ...more
NO EXPLICIT CONTENT? At first I didn't want to read it, but I must tell you It's Excellent! ;) can't wait for the next ride!

One Night With a Rock Star, by Chana Keefer, kind of snuck up on me, convincing me more and more that I'd like it if I just kept reading. All the characters' accents sang in my mind as I read. And by the time the hymn It Is Well With My Soul appeared on the page I had a steady stream of tears rolling down my cheeks. Yet again, Ms. Keefer has penned a classic. And yet another of her books kept me up far too late!
Baraka Williams
I loved this book! I couldn't put it down at first, but I'm glad I eventually did and gave myself a little break here and there to really soak it in and build up suspense. I loved the heroine so much and appreciated her realness, her doubts and convictions, her temptations and frustrations, the simple joys and the exhilaration she experienced...
The love story is so unique and beautiful. It speaks to the power of a person's character, the power of one moment or one encounter being pivotal in some
I was late for work today because I was reading this book. Then during the day I would pull the book up on my Kindle app on my phone to continue reading. One of the sweetest, loveliest books that I have read in a long time.
If you are looking for a simple love story, filled with real emotion and relatable characters, yet a little bit of rock star fantasy, please, please pick this book to read.
beware, this is a Christian book.. and i was not informed. I absolutely loved it, however, until Esther was trying to convert everyone around her into being Christian also. which I didn't like. ugh. but anyways. all religious parts of this book aside, it was great. and there's a sequal, which is even better. let's hope its as good as this one.. maybe a little less churchie though. :P
What an absolutely wonderful Christian romance. I inhaled the story that magically weaves reality, the rock world, doing good works and a young girl saving herself for the right man.

The descriptions of the scenes, characters, even their accents bring this book to life. I can easily see this being made into a movie, could we have Jon Bon Jovi play Sky?
Erica Smith
Ever read the Book of Esther in the bible or seen One Night with the King? Well, this book alludes to it. Out of all the young women Sky could have chosen, something was special about Esther...

Imagine having the opportunity to spend one, glorious night with your idol. The one whose poster hangs on your wall and you find him incredibly handsome, his songs really speak to your soul…you are just smitten with this untouchable person.

That is what happens to Esther in One Night a Rock Star. One evenin

I have to say this was a good book. It is a Love Story but not like I have read before. you get the passion heartache, Love and Struggle to deal with Life of a Rocker. It has No sex scenes but it doesn't need it. Esther and Sky is a story to read and enjoy. I can not believe I will have to wait so long for part 2.
Shellie Erwin
I just finished and cannot wait for the sequel! One Night With A Rock Star is a beautifully written love story that actually has redeeming value!!! What a treasure to find a story in this day and time that portrays an awakening of love, an honorable man and family values.
Deanna Johnson
You know how sometimes you read a book and it changes a part of you? For me, this was one of those books. The author has a gift for writing characters whose emotions you feel down deep in your soul. The story was captivating from beginning to end. A definite must read.
Ann Miller
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was magical with believable characters, plenty of plot twists. I had the feeling that I was reading a fairytale the whole time--sweet, good girl gets the prince. The prince grows and shapes up nicely by the end. I thought Keefer did a great job making him human with faults. The heroine could have lived next door. I could feel her maturing and changing as I read. I was crazy about her.

The only, very small complaint I had was with the phonetic spellings of slang
Straight out the gate...Chana created a world revolving around a twenty-year old college student who gets the rare opportunity to spent one night with a rock star...(don't let your mind go to the gutter--this book is clean.) I have over a thousand kindle book and have read my fair share of romances and just want to say that Chana doesn't need sex in her story to sell this book... There is angst, great character development, and dramatic arches to satisfy the romance reader. In the past I have st ...more

Ok, don't get thrown by the title. This is a Christian author. I was kind of hesitant in the first few chapters, but man, I loved it! Just read a couple of pages of the sequel and my heart stopped.
LOVED!!!! everything about this book... which is pretty surprising to me since I mostly read paranormal and/or erotica. I can't believe I have to wait until 2015 for the sequel

I love, love, LOVE this book! I read a lot, 2 or 3 books a week. Sad to say, there is a lot of mediocre writing out there. Then I read this and it blows me away. I am a romance novel junkie and adore Christian fiction. This book is a little edgy, but also helped me spiritually. It completely captivated my emotions. I thought it was just going to be a cute romance about a rock star and the ordinary girl that falls in love with him. It is so much more than that. In the end it is about a ma
