Anthologies are awesome! For one, they provide extended stories about the characters we love and they also introduce us to new authors, and… AND this is a rock star collection. Total catnip for me!

From this anthology I really wanted to read Rachel Van Dyken’s The Song, but there were other authors like J.L. Berg, I was interested in. And to top it all off, this is the kind of publication that gives as much as you get because all proceeds to towards patients and families affected by Gastropar

I love anthologies! I love getting small taste of several different writers compiled in one place with a similar theme! I love that these authors got together to bring awareness to an illness not many people are familiar with and also in support of one of the sweetest people I've ever met, Jill Sava.

Jill if you see this please know the amount of love and support we all have for you. You are a rock star in your own right so this book could not be a more fitting.

Once Upon a Rock Star Anthology is a collection of 9 authors coming together in support of individuals with gastroparesis, and all funds go to G-Pact an organization supporting this disease.

This review is for The Realtor and The Rock Star by J.L. Berg. It is the story of Kennedy and Ryan. Kennedy is a rock star and Ryan is a realtor with an ego a mile long. It’s a very quick, sweet story of two people who are instantly attracted to each other.

I loved this story. My only criticism is that it end

But Savannah has some heartbreak in her life and you'll see both her and Brandon react to that obstacle. You'll cry but you'll love! And most of all? You get to check back in with our amazing ...more

Since all proceeds are being donated to G-Pact, a non-profit set up to assist patients and their families, if you want to do something for people who are affected by gastroparesis, buy this book!

If you want to do something for yourself ... read it!

Typically, when I read an anthology of short stories like this one, I skip to the stories written by my favorite authors, and after that, it's kind of hit or miss whether I bother even looking at the other stories.

This anthology is filled with sinfully rock star awesomeness!! 9 sexy, sinful, seductive, sweet stories from 9 of the best authors around. Each story is new and different from the next one in the book and so addictive, you want more. And what’s great about this anthology is these authors banded together to bring awareness to an illness not many out there are aware of and also to support one of their own in the romance community, Jill Sava.

Proceeds from this book go to G-Pact (a non-profit organization for people with Gastroparesis). So many of my favourite authors plus a heartfelt note from Jill Sava are in this anthology for a great cause. Some of these stories have an HEA while others are just a tease of more to come, so keep that in mind. Here's reviews of most of the stories:

Since this is a series of short stories about rock stars I am going to rate each one as I read them and do a over all rate at the end.

1. The Realtor and the Rock Star ... 3 stars ... super short quick story with a very abrupt ending.

2. The Right Direction ... 2 star ... story was ok, kind of confusing at first but then it gets interesting and bam the story stops ... it says the story continues Dec 6th and a link to buy the book. Yeah no, I feel cheated!

What a fantastic way of raising money for a disease that not enough people know about.

This anthology features stories from 9 authors, each story features a rockstar. This was a great collaboration, and I have read authors that I'd never previously had the chance to read before. Each story left me wanting more, and now I need to go grab more books by these authors!

* A review copy was provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review *

This is an Anthology written by 9 various authors. All of them focus on a Rock Star Romance. I always find it hard to write reviews for anthologies, so I will provide a small review for of the short stories as I read them. I will leave an overall Star rating when I have completed all the stories. But each individual story will have their own star rating as well.

I have a thing about anthologies. I'm not a fan of novellas, but give me a collection of them bound together, and often my mind is changed. Once Upon A Rock Star was no exception! I have read 2 of the short stories so far, so I'm keeping my review to those. I'll add to this as I read more.

Review is for The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans....

This snippet of Kathy's next book is just enough to make you immediately pre-order the complete novel that releases in December.

We get just a glimpse of the story of Roman and Joselyn and the whirlwind story that is sure to unfold. I love a second chance romance and this is sure to be one of Kathy's best books yet.

We don't get much of their story yet so my review can't be very long but we do see that Roman left when he and Joselyn were youn

Awe! I loved this short story. I don’t want to get into it too much but I will say that if you are a fan of Rachel Van Dyken’s Seaside Pictures and Ruin series’ this is a must read. It’s cute, fun, and sexy. If you haven’t read the series’ or even anything by RVD then read it. It will give you a small glimpse to her wonderful writing and characters.

I always enjoy reading anthologies because it gives me an opportunity to read authors I wouldn't normally pick up.

In Rachel Van Dyken's "Song", we get to catch up with Gabe and Skylar as they are about to welcome their first child. He is also on a deadline for a new song. There's also a visit from all of the Seaside gang, Wes and Keirsten and even a reference to our new friends at the Bellevue Bucks football team.

As usual with every Van Dyken story, I completely fell in love with the whole gang

Rebel by Molly McAdams

If you know anything about me, it should be that I’m a huge Molly McAdams fangirl. When I heard that Libby from the Redemption Series was getting a novella I jumped at the chance to read it. I loved getting to see the Borello’s again and getting to see more of Libby’s story. The fact that her HEA comes at the hands of a rock star that has always loved her and always comes back for her was the cherry on the top. I absolutely loved Maxon from the moment I met him.

I’ve just read Kathy Coopmans’ addition to this anthology and I loved it. It’s basically leading you into her next book, The Right Direction. I’ve read most of the other authors included before so I’ll definitely read the rest along with the other maybe 2 authors that I haven’t read before. Great lineup of authors on this one so I know it’ll be worth it.
