Review - Fallen for Rock by Nicky Wells

Love, life, loyalties. Nothing stays the same when Emily gets drawn into the world of rock.

Glossy and sophisticated professional high-flyer Emily has no time for nonsense such as the rock music her ex-boyfriend Nate adored so much. Yet when she unexpectedly comes into possession of VIP tickets—access all areas—for new rock band phenomenon, MonX, she can’t resist the temptation. 

The fateful gig turns into more than one night, and Emily finds herself strangely drawn to this new and unfamiliar glittery world. However, only weeks later, MonX and her own universe fall apart with devastating consequences for all. When MonX lead singer Mike appeals for her help, she reluctantly embraces a new opportunity. But she soon discovers that while she may be a rock chick after all, a groupie she is not… Or is she?

Just exactly where do her loyalties lie? And what direction will her life take now that she’s left behind everything she treasured?

I really enjoyed this book.  It was really refreshing to read a Nicky Wells book with new characters who were really well formed. 
I loved the way that Emily changed so much as a person throughout the book and realised that life could be so much more fun if she just let her hair down a bit and enjoyed herself. I would happily go on to read more books about Emily! I liked her! I thought that Mike was a great character, not that I've ever known a rock star but he was all I wanted him to be.

The plot was good, Nicky is really good at setting a scene so you can easily picture it in your head and I enjoyed the ending too.  There were lots of laughs along the way too, which I expect from a Nicky Wells book.

A thoroughly entertaining read!
