Review: Never Fall in Love With a Rock Star

My name is Clover Calloway and I’ve lived two separate lives. 

The first, I like to call “my past.” I never talk about it. I try not to think about it. My rockstar days of playing in one of the hottest bands on the planet are over. Along with the most volatile, beautiful, tragic love story of all time.

Over the past five years, I’ve settled into my second life. My “normal life.” The one where I work a normal job, hang out with normal people and fall in love with a normal, but wonderful guy. The life where I’m admittedly a little bored, but also safe. 

My past wasn’t boring. But my past broke my heart into a million, unfixable pieces. So, I’m determined to keep it where it belongs—behind me. 

And the man responsible for the shattering of me? Malachi Porter, lead singer and mastermind of Bright Tragedy, should stay there too. Far away from me and this idyllic life I’ve carved out for myself. 

But what happens when my two lives collide? 

When Malachi comes crashing into my perfectly normal world, he threatens to destroy it, promises to annihilate everything I’ve replaced him with. 

He upends everything I thought I wanted and forces me to question the reasons I left Bright Tragedy all those years ago.

But I didn’t walk away five years ago, I ran. As fast as I could go. And while my heart is whispering that it’s different this time—that he’s different—my brain is screaming for me to run again.

Malachi Porter isn’t a normal guy. And he doesn’t belong in my “normal life.” But, nevertheless, he’s bound and determined to make a place for himself here.

I just hope my heart can survive him, that we don’t burn into another bright tragedy. 

5 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I loved this book!! A second chance romance is always one of my favorites to read.  There were ups and downs, my emptions all over the place. It felt like my heart was in my throat the entire time, finally able to let out the breath that I had been holding from the moment I started reading.  From the very first page Clover sucked me into her life and I did not want to let go. 

Clover walked away from the love of her life five years ago.  And in a way I think she also left a part of herself behind as well.  It hurt to leave it all behind but staying would have destroyed her even more.  She was determined to start a new life where no one knew who she was.  And things were going just as she had planned, until she ran into her past, literally.  

Kai is back in her life, and while she still wants to put him behind her, he will not make it easy for her. She tries so hard to deny the fact that what they has is still very strong.  She has a new life now and she is determined to make it work. But Kai is not only persistent, there is this pull when it comes to him.  And no matter how hard she tries to resist she can’t.  Is it worth the risk to give their love another chance?

I loved the emotions that those book brought out of me.  The relationship between Kai and Clover was intense and you felt the love and passion when the two of them were together.  That is what drew me in, was the feelings, the passion, the intensity of their story. They were away from each other for five years, but their love never died.  They just both grew in those five years.  It was a beautiful second chance love story.  I hope we get to see more of these characters in the future.
