3.5-4 STARS

I was just reminded of why I loved this series so much. Vanni's prequel,written solely from his point of view, takes us back to the beginning, to who Vanni was before music changed his life, and through all the obstacles and women and heartbreak that lead him to stardom... And Andy. He was impossible not to love, and still infuriating and womanizing and untameable, even before fame found him. But now I understand him a bit more, even if I still want to shake the crap out of him.

Vanni is the prequel I didn't even know I wanted. I adored the Groupie trilogy and was very satisfied once it was complete. However, once Ginger Voight announced that she was writing about the beginnings of Giovanni Carnevale, all those wonderful feels cam back and I realized this rock god had been away far too long. I was ready for more!

What we get with Vanni is the ultimate prequel. We get to witness first-hand the deep emotion, with both the heartache and joy in chasing one man's dream of su

"So many missed many mistakes."

Being a lover of rockstar romance, of course, I'd heard the buzz about the Groupie series. But I was late to the party. So, when Vanni was released as a prequel I decided to start at the beginning in spite of the fact that it was book four in the series. It was also my introduction to the writing of Ginger Voight.

When I started reading I thought it was going to be a love story, but that's not the case. It's more of a journey, an awakening.

Oh so good

Cabin deep down is a good man, his mama raised him right. What changed him were the questionable women he encountered on the way. We finally find out what made him the way he was and he still had a doubt that he should have happily ever after. Does he deserve it?.yes he does. He worked hard, party hard and paid his first for the misguided people on his journey. Loved this series.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance,
Ages back I read the Groupie trilogy. I remember being so angry at Vanni much of the time. Its one of those reads that’s so OTT in parts, so non stop drama filled that you just have to keep reading, kind of like watching a car crash when you know what's going to happen but can’t stop looking. I knew things were going to go badly for Andy, knew Vanni was going to be a lying rat and break her heart

Even though this is book #4 in the Groupie Trilogy I read it first since I had the opportunity to review it. Evidently it is a good thing that Ginger wrote this book so that you can understand what happened to shape Vanni into the rock star that he became. From my take on what others thought of Vanni once he made it to rock stardom he was not exactly loved as a great guy. Don’t get me wrong a douche bag is a douche bag no matter what but it is always interesting to see what happened that made hi ...more

Love me some Vanni!

I have read the Groupie Trilogy and the Fierce Trilogy. I had a hate/love view on Vanni! Did I think he deserved! Not at first. He was a class A jerk most of the first book! I felt bad for Andy and how he treated her like she was less. Then Vanni started to grow and evolve into someone who is better. He did (finally) have an epiphany that he was "embarrassed" by Andy on some level, that is why he treated her the way he did. I still wish there was a scene that he trul

"Vanni," by Ginger Voight, is a great book, wrapping up a sexy, compelling, heartbreaking series. It's the fourth book in the Groupie Series, even though it's a prequel. Vanni is a complicated character and it was interesting to read about the things that made him that way. I loved how the story unfolded as he changed significantly through events in his life. I've been feverishly reading the series the last couple of days and am going to miss it. It's a great journey and I highly recommend it.

I read the trilogy and wasn't going to buy it but I couldn't stop thinking about the Vanni Character. Any of us who knows bad boys know we always want to know why they are. Loved it. Couldn't put it down

ARC for honest review through Net Galley.
I liked how the story grew layers. It was the birth of a rock star. So in the end Vanni had layers of growth too. A lovely read.
