This is OK read for me. My first read by Miss Summers. I always drawn into small town romance. The feeling of that snug sweet romance. Capturing the Heart of the Rock Star is a second chance romance. Shane left Avery to chase his dream to be rock star. He lives in his dream but his heart never been able to forget Avery.

During the eve of Shane's best friend, he went home and face with the love of his life. Avery. Avery had been guarding her broken heart since Shane left. It is a somewhat cute sw
I love reading a good romance. I love reading even more second-chance romances. I don’t know what it is about them that I gravitate towards so much, maybe it’s the simple fact of two people who were once in love go their separate ways for whatever reason and then something brings them back together in the future, who knows. So, when I heard about this book and learned of its premise, I jumped at the chance to read it because it seemed right up my alley.

When he receives news that his best friend is getting married, Shane Knox goes back to Arbor Shores and the past he left behind, including his first love Avery. The first time they lay eyes on each other again, all the suppressed love they still have in their hearts came rushing back, and they start thinking if they still had their chance at a happy ending.
Avery was still very hurt at the way he had left things between them before leaving town, but after he explains the terrible reasons that

Shane Knox left the small town of Arbor Shores when he was a teenager to try & make it as a rock star, leaving the girl he loved behind with promises that he simply didn't even try to live up to. Nine years later, he gets news that his best friend is getting married, he decides he needs to be there, and will end up facing Avery again after all this time. He's made it in a rock band named Distant Union, but even with the fame & a failed marriage (which I'm even more pissed about because I'm not s ...more

It was decent for a second chance romance. Shane was pretty honest from the start. He saw his lost love and wanted to set the record straight, but also try again.

Avery, however, was too much. I felt for her and her pain, until she stopped making sense. She would tell Shane she didn't want anything to do with him, then agree to fake date, or whatever. It was like ping pong.

And then, the lies. I was done with her when she started with the lies. She just couldn't stop. But it rubbed me

Capturing the Heart of the Rock Star

They knew each other years ago. And had been sweethearts until he left and never looked back. He became a popular singer. Got married and divorced. She stayed back and worked for her parents. Now he is back for her brothers wedding. Will the past stay in the past? Or will old feelings come back?

Fun Easy Read

A nice Sunday read. Enjoyed the book. Lots of subplots to keep the story fast paced and interesting. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I kinda have a love/hate thing going on with this book. I love the rock star and small town element, I love Shane and Avery too, but parts of the story seemed too far fetched.

I don't pretend to understand the music biz a whole lot, but I can't see a record label dropping a lead singer from the band, that just isn't done. Even with bands as big as The Freaking BEATLES the label couldn't just say..ok, you don't want to do're out. The band's themselves make that decision..unless you are

If your a fan of rockstar stories then your going to love this one. Shane is the lead singer of Distant Union they haven’t had any new material for quite awhile and their manager was hasselling Shane for a new song or they could lose their recording contract so it’s up to Shane he’s the song writer for the band but he lost his muse plus he has to go to his best friends wedding. Shane had lost his muse when his actress bride was having an affair with another actor so it was hard writing love song ...more

I loved this book!
Avery and Shane have been burned by love, so of course they would rather not see each other again, especially when there are still some underlying feelings, but life doesn't always go the way you want it, and things not said will always lead to misunderstandings and beliefs that the feelings they shared weren't mutual.
But love is a messy game, and if your have the strength to stick around, you never know what might happen.
There was a lot of explaining done and I loved that you

I did enjoy this book but Avery was very annoying holding a grudge for so long and not letting Shane explain why he left the way he did. Overall It is a good read.

When Shane a world fa ours rock star returns home after 9 years for his best friends wedding he knows it won’t be easy, because Dax’s sister is the girl he left behind with promises to come back for her, and he didn’t! He left and never came back until now!

Avery still holds a grudge, she is helping to run the family holiday resort, an

This was my first read from this author. I liked it. I like reading about rockstars and their lives and this book was interesting. Shane Knox is a singer in the band and is having a hard time coming up with the new song. People expect him to write lovey dovey songs, but he is single after his wife cheated on him. He is coming back to his hometown he left 9 years ago, to attend a friend's wedding. But that also means catching up with Avery-his ex-girlfriend.

Such a wonderful second chance romance! Shane and Avery don't have an easy road to their HEA, and while their chemistry and love for each other are as strong as ever, they have to learn to trust each other again!

Capturing the Heart of the Rockstar is a sweet story of a first love reunion. This is not your typical bad boy rockstar romance storyline, which is refreshing. The author has created interesting characters, detailed setting, and enough twists in the story to keep you reading.

I love rockstar romance, I enjoyed Shane and Avery second chance romance story, I have read similar books to this one, but it also has some sweet different things. It had the angst of having the one you loved back to town after a long time relationship that left without closure. Good weekend read.

Sweet first love

Sweet first love. Even with a rock star involved this was a sweet first love second chance romance. Avery and Shane should have always been together. Dreams and family got in the way of that but life brought them back together. Great book.
