Full review to post on Netgalley and

Im just gonna sum it up here and basically say sometimes the cover sucks me in! This was definitely lacking in the story department.

Quick overview, Lacey has been infatuation with Dante Falcone her whole life...I mean obsessed, in love, in lust! All grown up and working for a company puts her on his promo tour as his "manager." Dante is super...genuinely sweet, emotional, and he lacks "bad boy" rock star qualit

"Rock It" was just OK for me.
The story didn't grab me.
I'm usually a sucker for a story about a hot Rock God, but Dante never had me swooning.
Believe me this is hard to do when it comes to me!!
I'm always falling in love with the leading male of the story.

I just didn't feel a connection to Lacey or Dante.

Lacey is starting a new job for what I'm thinking is an agency that represents famous people. See I wasn't super sure exactly what her job was!!!

It wasn't great nor bad..

The premise was nice, the ultimate fan gets to work with her idol in close proximity and he falls in love with her..
But it's not quite like that.

Their relationship was strained due to Dante's personality.. He had no passion, and he was mostly cold and detached for the biggest part of the book.. At least that's what i felt.. Lacey though is a nice character and very likeable..

Also the characters seemed like they were way older than their age.. Mostly Dante, a

Oh god this book.

There was a lot this:

A lot of this:

So the book started pretty well. Lacey is a huge fan (stalker obsessed) of Dante Falcone. She made scrapbooks about his life and career (fifteen of them!!). She's almost virginal, which was so *yawn*. She'd had sex before but she was uncomfortable with oral and just generally fairly innocent. There's nothing about Lacey that made me care about her at all. She's pretty vapid and shallow really. Dante however, is just a really nice guy. When we'r

Sadly, I have to say that this book just wasn’t for me. I tried to get into it, but there were just too many things I disliked as the book progressed...
I got to 60% before admitting defeat, and as such I will only post my reasons as to why –

• I really got the fact that Lacey was working with her teen idol, but after the first 100 or so fan-girling internal monologues about it, it got a bit repetitive.

• The constant, “we shouldn’t” but hell I’m going to anyways with Lacey, all got a bit monotono

I liked this book, but I can't say I loved it.

I had a hard time connecting with the H/h until about the 50% mark. I almost put this book down and marked it as a DNF at this point, but figured I give it one more chapter. It was a good thing I did read that one more chapter (isn't that what all obsessive readers say at 2 am?) because that was when things started to pick up, and the story finally peeked my interest.

The characters were good and I liked the 'dreams come true' story line, but I think

I like it when I pick out a book to read on my TBR list and it is an author I have never read before. I like it because there are jewels and gems waiting to be discovered. This is one of those books. And I will look forward to more in this series to come as well as other books from this author.

I was just about to start typing up my review when I spotted that some reviewers had given this book just two stars. I've just given it five. Did we read the same book? One of them said there was no story, so I'm pretty sure we can't have read the same book.

Lacey has had a crush on her teen idol Dante for years, a massive crush. She sent him over 100 fan letters at one point. And now, through a twist of fate, her company is going to represent him in his upcoming tour and she's a part of the team

Have you ever read in people's reviews how they may not have liked a book by an author that they're trying for the first time and they say, "sure, I'd give this author another try"? Have you wondered if they really do? Well, I've put that in my reviews before, and I honestly mean it. However, my TBR is soooo big that I normally don't get back to the author. But with this book, I have fulfilled that statement! I read a later book in this very series and just didn't mesh with the characters. But w

While I enjoyed this book there were too many similarities to "Rock My Heart" by Michelle A. Valentine. The premise is the same...girl loving or crushing on lead singer of a rock band. Guy wants girl...girl wants guy but can't have him without losing her job.
Girl travels with the band on their tour bus. There are some differences in the books and the book is well written. There is a HEA which I love and it's a stand alone book which is also another big plus for me! If I hadn't alread

2.5 - 3 stars. Cute love story about a total fangirl whose dreams come true - Meeting the man who occupied her heart and mind for years. It isn't everyday a girl gets to meet her crush. The story did not WOW did me, however, it made for a somewhat enjoyable read. A bit slow paced in the beginning, lacking any angst, drama or breathtaking moments. Lacey was a likeable character, but I just could not connect with her. Dante, who manage to keep me interest throughout the story, was sexy but lacked ...more

Yay! I wanted a love story with a rock band that would pull on my heartstrings and I got it. This story is about that first, big crush that you fall in love with and dream about endlessly. A story about falling in love with the real person that made up all the ridiculous and corny fantasies. I love how Chance kept a fine balance between sharing Lacey's teenage dreams and adult desires. It wasn't too much. It was just right.

This review is based on an ARC received for free from NetGalley. I am not being paid to review this book and what I write here is my own opinion. Below is the scale I use in rating books.

Did you ever have a crush on a rock star growing up? Do you remember having posters, dreaming of meeting him? Did you ever write xxx + ooo in a puffy heart, or Mrs. Ooo xxx? Then you can appreciate how young Lacey obsessed about a young star she saw on television, Dante. Well Dante made it to Rock Star status and Lacey tracked his every move, what he ate, what he liked, didn’t like, and kept scrapbooks about her feelings and his life. She even wrote him letters.

I love a good rock star romance. But this fell short for me. There's not much to the plot, I would have liked the story to have had more going on, a bit of angst or something. The characters needed more depth as well. Lacey was a fan/ stalker who gets to work with her obsession in life Dante Falcone. Since she was 16 she'd been obsessed with him, it's now seven years on and she's 23. But for much of the book she became that 16 year old girl again, she was all over the pl

Four Stars for Rock It by Jennifer Chance

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Not many rockstar romances have made it to my TBR list but Rock It and Jennifer Chance has me searching for more titles in this popularly growing sub genre. After reading so many books lately where all the characters seem to be drowning in one tragic circumstance after the next, it was refreshing to read a book you could just sit down, relax, and enjoy. Not that I'm complaining about the darker novels,

ROCK IT by Jennifer Chance was a really fun book to read! I'm always so happy when I pick up a book from an author I've never read before and absolutely love it! Ms. Chance's writing was well-paced, humorous, had a great storyline, steamy, steamy well-written chemistry between the Dante and Lacey, and sigh worthy declarations of love at the end. This romance addict enjoyed every. single. page.

I loved Lacey, her spunky lady lead, all her self-talk, her go-for-it attitude, and her complete fangirl

So Dante Falcone. Child star from the Disney channel.

Becomes teen pop idol.

Now is pretty much a superstar.

Basically this book is the author’s fangirling fantasy involving Justin Timberlake, because even though Dante looks nothing like JT, look at above evidence. I enjoyed this book probably a lot more than I should have and am pretty sure I’m rating it a lot higher because of that. This book was literally a fangirl teenage dream of mine.

This book is about fan girl meets her rock idol romance. Lacey Dawes is a fan girl in every sense of the word. Through her job with talent agency IMO Worldwide Media she is able to meet her teenage crush Dante Falcone. Through divine intervention (or the fact he wanted in that pencil skirt)he picks Lacey as the interim manager for his ongoing tour. And there ladies and gents is where there romance takes bloom.

Jennifer Chance has written a story around a young woman who ends up working with her teenage idol, can you imagine what that would have felt like. Jennifer’s writing is good, the story is well written, character descriptions are great…… getting to know each of them you find you either liked them or you don’t ….Jennifer does bring each character to life.

yup...that's pretty much how I felt reading this book; like my 16-year old self dream come true. What a fun read!!!
I enjoyed this book immensely. The book tells the story of young Lacey, now grown up getting to meet her teenage idol through her job at IMO. Lacey has loved Dante as a teen -- the Dante she knew as a fan; now as an adult, she gets to meet the real thing. In turn, Dante falls for Lacey not aware what a super fan girl Lacey really was (or is).

Being introduced to Lacey Dawes, Junior Agent at top rated PR firm IMO, she reminded me way too close to Priscilla West’s character, Riley Hewitt in “Reckless.” A Jimmy Choo wearing girl working closely with the band, getting the hots for some bad boy rocker clad in leather. But shortly after, Lacey developed into her own character so I think it would be safe to say any fans of West’s should love Ms. Chance’s works as well. I did.
