She's got it bad, and he ain't good -- he's in her garage?

"I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me..."

Gonna have to face it: Jody's addicted to Jackson Gatlin, frontman of The Regulators, and after her best bud Mac scores tickets, she's front and center at his sold-out concert. But when she gets mashed in the moshpit and bodysurfs backstage, she's got more than a mild concussion to deal with. By the next morning, the strung-out rock star is coming down in her garage. Jody -- oops -- kind of kidnapped him. By accident. With a Curly Wurly candy bar. And now he doesn't want to leave.

It's a rock-star abduction worthy of an MTV reality series...but who got punk'd?!

Rockoholic has been on my to-read list for months and I have to say, the new cover is hot!

Jody's a groupie but she's specifically obsessed with the frontman of her favourite band - The Regulators - Jackson Gatlin.
After a bad night at one of The Regulator's concerts, Jody ends up accidentally, um, kidnapping their lead singer, Jackson. This leads her on an insane, downward spiralling adventure and she drags her best friend Mac (who's a guy) down with her.

This book was entertaining from start to finish! Sure, it was far-fetched at times but entertaining through and through. I'm a sucker for rockstar romance but I was sadly let down in that area by this book. However, I found Mac and Jody's relationship adorable! I still don't understand how she assumed he wasn't straight but oh well.

Overall a quick, light and fun read!

  3. This does sound like quite a fun read! I hadn't heard of it until I saw it on netgalley yesterday! It's a shame that the rockstar-romance wasn't quite what you expected, but I'm glad you still enjoyed it. I sometimes like a nice easy read!

  4. Hilarious and super heartwarming, if someone asks for a rock and roll book this is the one I recommend!
