Being best friends with a mega-star has its perks and Nicole Wilde, music journalist, laps them up. But when said friend, Dylan King, gorgeous lead singer of The Burnouts, has zero sense of self-preservation – once a drop of alcohol hits his blood stream ‒ and an inability to keep ‘little Dylan’ in his pants, it also comes with responsibilities.

Now, Nicole has to track down Dylan in time to play a charity gig tomorrow. Half a dozen groupies, a haunted hotel, a tattoo parlour, a reality show runner-up and a crazy bed-hopping, sleepless night later – will she find him before the tour bus leaves town? And when she does, is it time to head home? Or to jump on the tour bus and go along for the ride!

Firstly thank you to Portia for sending me a copy of this book for review.

This was a fun and hilarious read.

As cool as it sounds to be best friends with a Rockstar Dylan seems like a pain in the backside. He acted a little selfishly and I felt sorry for Nicole having to run around after him.

Nicole seemed like a fun girl. She clearly enjoys her job and being part of the music scene. I’m not sure I could have been as loyal as she was to Dylan. I think I would have given up looking for him.

Dylan seemed to be having a great time all over this tiny little town. Apart from having to look for him I think being his friend would most definitely be interesting. I’m sure there would never be a dull day.

Troy seems nice. He also pretty hot. He clearly enjoyed tagging along on Nicole’s little adventure. I hope we see more of him in Starstruck.

This book is a quick, fun read that sets you up for the follow up, Starstruck. It brings you in and makes you need to know more about each character. I feel like I’m going to be getting my own backstage pass to life on tour. I can’t wait!

About Portia MacIntosh

When she was fifteen-years-old, Portia MacIntosh fell in with a bad crowd… rockstars.
After disappearing on tour and living the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle for a few years, Portia landed a job in the music industry – but only so that she didn’t have to join the real world just yet.
Now in her twenties, Portia is ready to spill the beans on the things she has witnessed over the years. Well, kind of. If her famous friends knew that she was borrowing their lives to inspire her fiction, they would stop inviting her on tour and banish her from the inner circle. Then she really would have to rejoin the real world, and she’s still not ready.
Portia only started writing novels to share her secrets, but then she realised she actually quite liked writing – maybe even more than she likes living on a bus with a bunch of smelly boys – and has since tried her hand at writing about other things.
