Rock It by Jennifer Chance didn’t do much for me. The cover was hot, the premise of a rock star intriguing, but the plot failed to grab me from the start.
Lacy has grown up adoring rocker Dante. Scrapbooks adorned her room making her one of his biggest fans. Now grown up, her scrapbook are packed up and she is starting at the bottom learning to manage celebrities. When tasked with getting the details of Dante’s day, she thinks that is all she will be doing. But Dante notices her and will only work with her on his upcoming promo tour.
Out on tour together Dante finds out she is the ultimate fan girl…well I almost want to say stalker, but hey, she wasn’t trying to get this job this time. Keeping it professional is what she intends to do. But it comes out in a big way how much of a fan girl she is and the press comes a runnin’. At this point I pretty much started giving up on this couple as immature and really needing to grow up.
Dante really isn’t a bad boy rocker. More like Disney Channel goody goody guy. There’s really not a thing wrong with him and that is what really is wrong with him. He is just too nice, sweet and forgiving.
The two along with Lacy’s friend create elaborate schemes to promote, hide and otherwise confuse everyone. The passion wasn’t there and I didn’t feel any attraction between the two.
What I wanted was a good raunchy story of a rocker and the prim lady who had adored him all her live. It just never came to be and left me scratching my head and wondering if New Adult romance just isn’t what it is cracked up to be.
Do you like your rockers squeaky clean? Or do you want to see the bad boy side?
Should they have flaws? Do you like New Adult romances?
