4 Rock and other shiny Stars

"Every life has a measure of sorrow and sometimes this is what awakens us."


description

Following the lives of a teenaged girl and her rockstar idol as they meet by fate, fall in love reluctantly and dread the future. They make mistakes, they screw up and they play. Music defines them and the age gap that is keeping them apart seems so insignificant, that when it becomes an issue it breaks your heart.

Frontman of the Strange Angels Jonathan Fox, is a rock legend. He has it all. Mon

One of my friends in high school was completely obsessed with John Frusciante, the sometimes guitar player for the Red Hot Chili peppers. She was sure if they ever met they would have this instant connection and would live happily ever after. Now, even then, I was more realistic then to think that would happen, but it was a nice fantasy.

A Million Miles Away is the REAL version of what might happen when a girl meets her rock star idol. I have t

A Million Miles Away (Angel Interceptors #1) is the debut book of Elizabeth Corva and I must applaud her since this book took me by surprised on how much I was consumed with Jonathan and Jasmine’s story. I must warn readers there is a cliffhanger and no HEA. What I think makes this book stands out from other rocker books is that Ms. Corva took time in developing the storyline between Jonathan and Jasmine. She did not rush into a typical storyline of a lead singer falling

Hi, all! Author here. Just to clear up any concerns, A Million Miles Away is Book 1 of a three-part series. And yes, the ending for this book is a cliffhanger/unresolved (depending on your viewpoint) in that the main characters don't get their HEA until the end of Book 3. Hand on heart, I swear I'm not doing this to maximize sales. I love this story and believe in it with every fiber of my being, but I know it's not going to be a bestseller. Or even a dece

I’ll start by saying I am fan. That’s it.

You know you are reading a good book when you find a sentence like this after just a few pages: "Jasmine hung her head, her features crumpling as she began to sob her thirteen-year-old heart out."

This is not just a great story about how dreams can come true – although they don’t necessarily go the way you might expect --, but it’s also a beautifully written one. The author knows the universe of music and that knowledge becomes almost tangible through the

A Million Miles Away is a book about Jasmine, a teenager living with her step-dad. Her mother passed away when she was thirteen and when she was feeling sad, she turned to music... or more specifically Strange Angels, her favorite rock band.

The lead singer, Jonathan Fox, is her favorite member of the band. He is hot and English/Irish with quite the accent... I love when he calls girls, birds :)

Omg!! Seriously, I need.....I want....just.....I'm at a loss for words! I went in with no expectations to almost putting the book down to pissed off that I didn't get what I didn't realize what I wanted.

I'm still in a bit of shock over this ending. I wanted it to end this way originally but at the same it didn't end the way it should have.

I'm a mess right now. I know Jasmines is too young and Jonathan is way too old for her but ugh!!!!

I just finished this book literally 10 minutes ago. I'm going to say, it was absolutely AMAZING. If you like, romance, older hot guy, celebrity guy, something realistic, then you'll love this book. I didn't sleep last night, it was THAT good guys :)

The story follows the life of a 17 year old girl named Jasmine who's about to begin college. Prior to that, she goes to a concert where her all time favorite band Angel Interceptors is playing. She meets Johnathan, lead vocals and guitarist in the ba

You know when you read a book that draws you in so completely that you forget the real world exists, and you live in that book and forget you're reading fiction? And how, when you've finished the book, it stays with you for days after, and you keep thinking about the characters and wondering what happened to them after the last page? Yeah, that was me this weekend, and the book is A Million Miles Away by debut author Elizabeth Corva.

I have a confession. Though I love rock star romances, my backg

My first thought after finishing A Million Miles Away was what a debut! This book is the first in the Angel Interceptors Series by Elizabeth Corva and I just devoured it. After reading the blur, I was super excited to get started on this one, and it definitely did not disappoint. Books that incorporate music are some of my favorites, and this one was done wonderfully. This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and I couldn't put it down. I had a feeling I would like it, but I was ...more

ARC received from the author in return for an honest review.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book and its storyline. I love my music/band based books so I was really looking forward to getting my teeth into the first two Angel Interceptors books.

The story surrounds the lives of Jasmine Ashcroft, a 17 year old with a painful history, and the British lead singer of the band “Strange Angels”, Jonathan Fox.

After the death of her mother when she was 13, Jasmine turns to music to help her to come t

This one was slow building, but by the time I got to the last page I was thankful I had the second book on my Kindle and ready to be read. Elizabeth Corva allows me to continue on with my love affair with British leading men..even those that at twenty nine aren't too sure about their feelings for an eighteen year old.

Who didn't have a immensely huge crush on the lead singer in whatever band you loved when you were eighteen. Who wouldn't give anything to meet said crush or better yet

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Rock star romances have sort of become one of my guilty pleasures, so I was definitely excited when I read the synopsis. I honestly didn't expect to love it as much as I did though!

It was such an easy read and if it weren't for pesky things like my job and my need to sleep I absolutely would have finished this in one sitting. I usually prefer when books are written in first person, but third person worked so well for this book bec

I received this book for an honest review: I'm a little torn how to rate this but first I should start off with that I liked it. I liked the characters. Their age difference being the main concern throughout was realistic. And from what I remember from being a teen once upon a time, Jasmine's responses and awkwardness was spot on. The downside to the book was that it was tame almost to the point I'd rate it PG13 BUT everything that happens leads up to events in book two which in turn is spicier ...more

I started reading this book yesterday afternoon and finished it at 3am. So today morning i downloaded the second book and finished it a few hours ago. So i would say that enjoyed it just a little bit... Ok i loved it! It's been a while since i felt so passionate about a book and i'm relieved that there're books and authors still out there who can surprise me. I just have the need to mention that this book is written in the 3rd person (not my favorite writing style) and at first i was really ...more

This book was a rare lovely work. Lately so many books seem to be based on insta love relationships, and it grews old really fast. So this was simply what I needed to reassure me that there are still authors out there that know how to write a story full of longing and free of sex at any costs, slowly building a relationships.
I loved the characters, both Jasmine and Jonathan. Even though I have no experience about gorgeous rock stars, I think Jonath

A Million Miles Away by Elizabeth Corva came highly recommended. I immediately purchased, started reading and was hooked. From start to finish it was deliciousness and I ate it up and now I want more more more.

Cannot wait to for book 2 in this series as I need to keep reading. Not since Juli Page Morgan's Crimson and Clover has a book rock-n-rolled me over this good.

Great job! It's a shame I can only give 5 stars. Rock on

Great book even with the =( ending. Some very funny parts in there to balance out the sad/intense stuff. Made me feel like I was at the shows at Jasmine's side! I agree with the other readers that she and Jonathan need to get together in book 2, because they would make a hot couple!

When I started this book, I wasn't sure I'd like it. It seemed to be more YA or juvenile than the usual type of books I like. It was my first NA (new adult ) book that I've ever read. But I was surprisingly drawn into the story. It reminded me of the teenage crush I had on a famous Spanish singer years ago, and I totally related to Jasmine's star struck feelings, fancies, hopes, and desires. I met my crush at a record signi

Don't worry, this WILL NOT be a nasty review. I hate those, and I know even though I didn't like the story, I know the author put work into this book and I respect that. With that said...

I really hate to say it, but I didn't connect with this book at all. It just wasn't for me. I didn't connect with any of the characters, especially Jasmine. I didn't care too much for her inner thoughts and the whole journey that was

I remember reading this story on fictionpress a couple years ago. I loved it then, and reading it published, I love it any more! Ms. Corva did an excellent job rewriting and editing this story, and I didn't want to stop reading it to sleep.

I love the characters. Jasmine is very relateable. She's that girl we all were, with a crush on a rock star and she lives the dream, getting to meet and befriend her crush! I really liked the band too, Jonathon and Silver especially. I wanted to read more abo

I love the book, but was a little disappointed in the age difference between the two characters. I can't say a lot without giving anything away. but it was a great read, kept me turning the pages, I could definitely relate to the main character in a lot of ways. really excited for book 2!
