Every fangirl has a fantasy . . . what happens when that “if only” dream comes true?

Though she’s a single mom wedged firmly into thirty-something territory, author Kallie Reagan’s devotion to rock star Niles Russell knows no bounds. To pay homage to her muse, Kallie writes a smokin’ hot novel featuring a hero who looks and acts an awful lot like Niles — and a heroin

I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review :) and I definitely have some very mixed feelings about it... *sighs* it started off really good, but unfortunately the more I got into it, the more things kept bothering me... ultimately, after struggling back and forth a little bit with my thoughts, I gave this book 3 stars... it's the first book in a series, and the sequel, about the same couple, is already available, but don't worry, this book does not end on a cliffhanger of an ...more
Kallie Reagan cannot believe the book she wrote, loosely based on her favorite rock star took off and has become wildly popular. It that wasn't enough when she receives text from said rock star, she never thinks she will meet him in person.

Niles Russell has it all, but the man you see on stage is quite a bit different. Niles seeks Kallie out and invites her to his concert. They meet and grow closer, but everything they do is under a microscope. Kallie is dealing with her ex, trying to raise her

I love rock star romances <3 It's been a while since I've read one, but I had to let them go for a bit. This one is an excellent book

Really enjoyed this "Fangirl" book! To me it was not your typical Rock Star romance...Niles was not your typical overconfident rock star either. Loved it!
Satisfying read. A must read for anyone who has ever had a fangirl crush (ehem, me: #HenryCavillAfterGlow.) Likeable characters. Sweet story. Some of the secondary characters seemed treated like an afterthought, particularly the ex-husband and best friend, but did not take away from the overall fantasy of meeting and falling in love with your star crush. Easy to recommend!

I went back and forth while reading this new-to-me author, alternately enjoying the heck out of the story and then wanting to throat-punch the characters. The writing warrants four stars, however, the characters ultimately fell short for me. Kallie’s and Niles’s inner conflicts and past wounds, while clearly presented, lacked the depth necessary to make it more than the “required” element of conflict merely stuck in. All that said, if you’re looking for a well-written, fun story All Access fills ...more

Star rating: 5 freaking enormous cheering stars

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advance copy of this romantic women's fiction debut by Liberty Kontranowski a couple of weeks before its release. I'm pretty sure the universe knew I needed this book, because I was sucked right in to the story from page one.

True story #1: I fangirled ALL OVER this book from the first chapter.

What's a fangirl to do when her fantasy dream of finding love with her favorite rock star comes true?

Author Kallie Reagan is fangirl obsessed with rock star Niles Russell. She is so obsessed that she wrote a book about him! And guess what ... he read it! When Kallie receives a text from Niles asking if she wrote the book about him, she had no idea that her fantasy was about to become true, when he asks her if she wants to meet him. What starts out as a fangirl obsession leads Kallie

Imagine you are obsessed with a band member, a musician and you are a writer? What would you do? Would you base your characters on him/her? Would your story be a fan fiction of their lives? Now imagine what would happen if that band member contacted you after reading your book?
That is what happened to Kallie after her divorce, she decided to write a romance book and use herself as muse for the female character Emily and her favourite artist Niles Russell as the inspiration behind the male lead

All Access is certainly a fantasy dream story come true. Meet Kallie Reagan, a divorced mother of two, after writing her first romance book based around lead singer of a band, Niles Russell, basing his charcter as Nash and basing the female character, Emily on herself, imagine the surprise when Kallie gets the text out of the blue from none other than Niles Russell himself. At first she thinks it is her friend Sara playing a prank but as she exchanges more messages it clearly is the one and only ...more

Even though I'm a sucker for romantic comedy movies, I don't read many books in the Romance (or Romance-related) genres. I always worry that the characters will be too flat or predictable, or that the love scenes will make me want to barf. HOWEVER, I was excited to read All Access because it took a premise every fangirl could relate to (pining for a musician who doesn't know you exist) and added an irresistible hook (what if that musician not only knew you exist, but also wanted to meet you?).

This book is a bit odd. On the face of it, the female protagonist is aged 30, a single mom of 2 with a divorce behind her. And yet, her behaviour and the narative voice are both of a much younger person - probably late teens. And that impression is compounded by the fact that she refers to herself as a girl (not a woman) and behaves completely like a fangirl.

The underlying story is reasonable and the writing style is solid. But my issue with the voice is a little jarring for me. And

I really enjoyed this story. I liked the correlation between the 2 stories because they are in sync but also opposites. I wished that Niles could be a little more original than copying Nash because I thought it was a little lame. I mean here is this author he is falling for and instead of using his own ideas he copies hers. However, if that is the only negative I could get from this story then it is awesome
Cozy romance

All a bit cozy and I felt, at times, just a step up from Sweet Dreams romances from the 80’s. Teenage angst, swoony moments, weird words (squee! 🙄) and silly lack of confidence moments - but from a mother of two. I felt like she should’ve been a bit more confident and kick arse than she was (just tell Robbyn to mind her own business and go f*ck herself, FFS). I was a bit turned off by her lack of Mum phone calls and visits too. Maybe just a girl who’s recently broken up with the hus

Very good!!

I really enjoyed All Access by Liberty Kontranowski! I don't write many reviews, but I felt this book deserved one!

No teasers or reveals from me; I personally detest them as I feel they ruin the book for the next reader.

I will say All Access starts with an unrealistic concept, but this author makes the story work -and quite well!

Enjoyable fun read

This book is for anyone who has ever been a hardcore fan of a band or particular musician. It’s the fantasy in book form. I enjoyed reading this story and even though I didn’t expect to, couldn’t put it down. I’ll follow this author, really enjoyed her “voice”.

All Access - a Dream Comes True

I laughed a little and cried a little as this story played out. I LOVED this book! It's what every girl has at least one time imagined it would be like to meet their teen heartthrob!

Good rockstar story

Loved the premise of this book. Who wouldn’t want their rockstar crush to become a reality. There may be a little too much angst for my taste and some unanswered questions I wish were revealed. Overall, a decent book.

Disclaimer: I was given an advanced copy of ALL ACCESS in exchange for an honest review.

It's fitting that this book is being released today, just after the start of summer, because it is the *perfect* summer read.

I won't delve into plot--the description is sufficient overview--other than to say that it's well-executed and deliciously (yes, deliciously!) paced. You will finish a chapter...and then one more...and then maybe just one more, even though it's late and you're sleepy...beca

This was one of those "OMG I really need to go to sleep but I can't put this book down" type books. Very fast paced, dynamic characters and a creative plot line- because face it, we all have had those "I want a rock star to love me" moments in our lives.
The book follows the story of Kallie, a divorced mother of two, who writes her first book around the lead singer, Niles, of her favorite band. Niles reads the book and is intrigued why she would do this so he tracks down her phone number th

This book arrived just in time for the summer-must-read list!! Grab this book, head to the beach, cabin or wherever you don’t mind staying for a while, and enjoy this totally fun book!
I have to tell you that once you begin this book, you will not want to put it down for the mere fact that it is such a dreamy story! I was in love with this entire book, from the writing to the characters and the overall feel of the story. It just made me happy!

I am totally fangirling this book! This book has so much offer - celebrity crushes, romance, drama, and more. Who can believe that two people know about chips and O's - something new for me! If you can find someone that just fits, then you must have something real. Enjoyable rockstar chicklit for a weekend getaway! Be sure to download Reality Rocks so you can keep reading all about Kallie and Niles!

Sometimes this book seemed a little bit too far fetched, but this didn't diminish my enjoyment of the novel. There were times when I found Kallie Reagan's (and sometimes even Niles Russell's) behaviour a little obsessive. The first stages of love are very apparent in this novel. I would have liked to know how Kallie's ex, Brad, got to be how he was; and why Niles had such a bad opinion of himself (besides for the reason that was shared, as these things usually stem from childhood days). I got a ...more

Couldn't put it down

What a refreshing book. Not quite Cinderella but a wonderful tortuous love story...recently divorced ,single mother and author. She writes a fictional book about her favorite rock star. Hmmm he contacts her and the fireworks began. Factor in an ex husband and jealous ex girlfriend to the mix. I loved how the love scenes were not stressed into the storyline. Can't wait for the next book.

This book pulled me in from the first page! You get immediately caught up in Kallie's adventures with her rock star crush. But you also get caught up in Kallie's life, in her efforts to just be herself and the best darn version of herself. And you get caught up in the love story. This isn't some sort of "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" groupie crush. This is the sweet love story between two creative people just looking for that one person who "gets" them. Fun, engaging, and so satisfying!
