I can’t thank the people who bought DEAR ROCKSTAR enough! The reviews have been so wonderful, I’m walking around smiling all the time. People are starting to wonder what I’ve been up to!

Oh nothing… just writing a Top 100 Amazon bestseller, that’s all! 🙂

So many people are asking for a sequel. I have a few ideas in my head… maybe! We’ll see!

BTW, someone asked me why in the world it was in “historical” romance. I know it looks a little out of place with all the pretty dresses on the front of the historical page, but it IS historical – set in the 1980’s!

If you want my take on why I think the 1980’s counts as historical, check out my blog post over at ShelfPleasure!

THANK YOU to everyone who agreed to review this book in exchange for a copy – and everyone who has purchased it to push it higher in the rankings, making it visible to more readers who might enjoy Dale and Sara’s story.

BTW, the reviews have been lovely! Here are a few quotes:

“Emme Rollins – you are amazing!” 

“I don’t have a single bad thing to say about Dear Rockstar, well aside from the fact that I finished the book and am dying to know more about what happens with all of the characters. Encore, encore!”

“This book definitely takes you for a ride. You will swoon, smile, cry and definitely fall in love!”

“Emme Rollins: You should feel extremely proud of this achievement. I think it is extraordinary. Thank you for bringing this experience into my life.”

“This is a well written book with amazing characters and deep issues.”

“Things escalate quickly near the end, but rest assured: no cliffhangers here! Lately it seems every new book I read is the start of a series, so it was nice to read a complete story for once!”

“This is a must read for anyone looking for hot smexy rockers. It gave me angst and love and the whole kitchen sink.”

“You can absolutely totally FEEL the heart that was poured into writing this book.”

ABOUT DALE DIAMOND:

“Dale is a very alpha, hot rocker boy, who comes across as very believable and not cliché.”

“I love me some Dale!”

“Dale. Oh Dale Diamond. You have been added to my shelf of book boyfriends.”

“I have to say I think I fell in love with a new Rockstar and his name is Dale Diamond!”

“If you like dark romance and obsessive, broken characters (well written, at that!), this book is for you. I <3 Dale, by the way. He’s all mine. You can’t have him.”

“Dale Diamond. God, I loved him! He really got Sara as a person, and just ughhh, he is so fine! Sexy and a rockstar, so if those are also your weaknesses, you’ll enjoy this book greatly!”

Dear Rockstar

by Emme Rollins

Sara is obsessed with rock star Tyler Vincent, and as she works to complete her senior year, she’s determined to find a way to meet him—although her best friend, Aimee, keeps telling her to find a different escape from her desperately violent home life.

Complications arise when Dale, the mysterious new transfer student, sets his sights on Sara, and she falls for this rock-star-in-the-making in spite of her better judgment. When Sara wins a contest, she is faced with a choice—travel to Tyler Vincent’s home town to meet him, or stay and support Dale in a Battle-of-the-Bands hosted by MTV.

Their triangulated relationship is pushed to its breaking point, but there is another, deeper secret that Dale’s been keeping that just may break things wide open…

Turn up your collar, feather your hair, and splash on some Polo, because we’re going back to the ‘80’s when MTV played music videos, there was no such thing as American Idol, and becoming a star meant doing nothing short of crazy for that one, big break.

FULL 65,000 WORD NOVEL – NEW ADULT ROCK STAR ROMANCE

EXCERPT:

“I dropped out in my senior year. Three years ago.” Dale sipped his Coke too, looking at me over the rim. He had a way of seeing into me that was disconcerting. I felt naked in front of him.

“Let me guess? You wanted to make it in the music business?”

“My parents were having problems.” He sat back in his chair, picking at his food. “My dad left my mom. We moved to Seattle. That’s when I really started getting more serious about music.”

“And your dad was okay with you quitting school?”

He snorted. “No. But he I didn’t give him a say. I moved out.”

“So, how did you end up here?”

“I told you. He got a job at Rutgers.” He seemed far away now, distant. I didn’t like it.

“But you weren’t living with him?”

Dale shrugged. “He asked me to come with him. He said he’d pay for everything, let me live with him, and I could pursue my music as long as I was working on getting my diploma.”

I nodded. “So the Academy is your compromise.”

“Well, I knew about the battle of the bands before we moved.” He flashed me a brief smile. God, that dimple. “MTV did them last year in New York, and I had it on good authority they were going to do them again this year. I figured I’d have time to put a band together and give it a shot.”

“Well now that I’ve seen you, I think you’ve got a pretty good one,” I said honestly. That was an understatement. I couldn’t imagine anyone beating them.

“You think so?”

I nudged him with my knee under the table. “I think you know it.”

“I still like to hear it.” He turned to look at me, his eyes searching. “Especially from you.”

I smiled, reaching over and taking his hand, giving him exactly what he’d asked for. He deserved it. “You’re very good. You’re an amazing singer. You’re an incredible performer. I’ve never seen a crowd go crazy like that for someone they’d never seen before. I mean, celebrity takes time. Exposure. I think you’re one of those people who draws other people in. Like a magnet. You’re going to have people following you around, no matter what you do. For the rest of your life.”

He was actually blushing. “Why do you say that?”

“Because that’s how you make me feel,” I confessed, biting my lip, almost wishing I hadn’t said it.

“Hm.” He made a little noise in his throat, turning my hand over in his, tracing the lines in my palm with his fingertip like he was following a road map. “How do I make you feel?”

“Like I would follow you anywhere,” I whispered.

He lifted my hand and pressed his lips to my palm, closing his eyes briefly, and I noticed how long and dark his lashes were before he looked at me with that intense, blue gaze, telling me more with one look than either of could ever say in words.

“When I saw you in the audience today, I don’t even know how to tell you what it did to me.” He shook his head, twining his fingers with mine.

“Why didn’t you tell me you were performing?” I asked softly.

“Because I didn’t want that to happen.” He gave a short laugh. “I didn’t want to be distracted. I wasn’t supposed to let myself get distracted…”

He met my eyes, the emotion in them so strong I felt it before he even said the words. “Sara, I don’t think you understand what you do to me.”

“What do you mean?” Now it was my turn to ask him.

“I couldn’t think,” he confessed. “Thank God the song was over, because the minute I saw you… I was done for.”

“Oh please.” I smiled, teasing him. “All those screaming girls. I’m surprised they weren’t throwing panties at you.”

“Sometimes they do.” He grinned. “But that never mattered to me.”

I blinked in surprise. “What does matter to you?”

“Now? You.” He squeezed my hand in his, that was all, but the sensation shot up my arm with a jolt that nearly knocked me off my chair.

“Dale, do you realize how crazy that sounds?” I whispered, glancing around like someone might overhear us. “We’ve only known each other for a week.”

“Sometimes the best things in life are crazy.”

I laughed. “I can’t argue with that.”

It was crazy.

It was all crazy.

Me and Tyler Vincent.

Me and Dale Diamond.

But somehow the latter had fully eclipsed the former in my mind—and my heart—at least in the moment.

Review of The Girl in 6E by Alessandra Torre

girlin6E

 

Alessandra Torre has written a fabulous book. This New Adult book was a fantastic read, not at all what I was expecting. First of all, it’s extremely well-written. A few editing issues here and there, but overall the style was easy to read, even if the POV changes made you wonder just where, exactly, this book was going? The good news is I couldn’t put it down, even when I wasn’t sure what was going to happen next. I found myself completely immersed in Deanna’s world, the way she had fixed her life so she could keep herself away from everyone. And the reason she had locked herself away surprised me too. I expected an agoraphobic maybe, with anxiety issues. Nope, not this girl! She’s WAY more feisty (and dark and twisted!) for that.

All in all, a good read, a page-turner, an NA thriller with a smart, dark, but still very likable main character, and a shocking but satisfying ending.

The only thing that bothered me was the relationship between Deanna and Jeremy happened almost like an afterthought or an epilogue. The primary part of the story was Deanna overcoming her hangups (and man, that poor girl had a lot of them, and for good reason – I won’t give it away though, no spoilers here!) and working through them on her own. Jeremy “helped” – but there was no rescuing on his part. Not that there should have been. I think Deanna coming to things on her own was the way it should be. But I felt a little let down that all the relationship-y stuff happened sort of after-the-fact, because Deanna and Jeremy had great chemistry!

I can’t wait to read more from this author!
