Emily Watts is about as average as an LA girl can be. She works, she hangs out with her friends, and she goes out on the weekends. But suddenly her life is turned on its ear when she becomes a media sensation overnight–literally. Dating should never be this hazardous, but it certainly becomes something to avoid as Emily gets caught in the media crossfire between her new rock star boyfriend and her good male friend who also happens to be a member of an up-and-coming band.
As the men start to manipulate her life, Emily has to get smart and learn a few tricks of her own in order to survive (and to protect her business). But life’s lessons are hard learned as Emily struggles to keep her web business afloat, her freelance projects viable, and her personal life in check.
Rock Star’s Girl is a crazy roller coaster of a ride of Emily’s life–personal and otherwise. Ms. Kristen does a remarkable job giving us candid insight of the social media frenzy that can start overnight and end just as suddenly. Emily is beautiful, smart, and savvy, but could be any one of us–ordinary girl turned web sensation all by association. But my favorite part is Emily herself, who suffers through verbal abuse from strangers, loss of friends and freedom, and somehow manages to get her life back on track with dignity and grace. Kudos to you, Emily, for being the girl we all want to be!
J.F. Kristin (Jennifer) has been writing since the day she picked up a navy blue Crayola as a toddler and began scribbling on her parents’ freshly painted white walls. When not writing novels, Jennifer writes about both writing and ecommerce, and previously spent a number of years as a freelance promotional writer and web designer for musicians. In the early days of the Web, she ran the Society for Preventing Parents from Naming Their Children Jennifer (SPPNTCJ), a tongue-in-cheek web site that welcomed millions of visitors during its run, received coverage from print, broadcast, and online media, was included in an academic textbook, and was studied on a college course. Jennifer is currently at work on her second novel.

You don’t need to tell me to say it’s a beautiful cover, it really is! Thank you very much for the chance to win. edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom
It is, at that! And the stuff inside it good too! :) Thanks for coming over today!
Thanks Amie. JL’s book sounds great and I do love the cover. And I’m jealous of her photos. (insert pout here) Thanks for introducing her to us. Her website sounds hilarious, though I don’t think it accomplished what she hoped for since I know a lot of kids named Jennifer. ;)
Those pictures are fab! I wonder if Christie Brinkley would notice if I took one of her photos and used it for my bio? LOL And the book’s great too! :)
You don’t need it Amie! Christie will be asking you that!
Thanks for the great review Amie!
I feel fortunate to have been able to be a part of this! :)
Awesome cover! And the content doesn’t sound so bad, either!! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of this amazing looking and sounding book :)
It’s a definite keeper! :)
I love the cover as I am trying to come up with the perfect cover for my own novel. This would count as one of the good ones, no doubt about it. I would also love to read the book, so just in case you feel the need to award me the prize you can reach me at email@example.com
I’ll keep that in mind. *wink*
Good Morning! And I must pause here to wish Amie a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! WHOO HOO! *Bells, whistles, confetti* Okay, first, I LOVE this cover. LOVE IT! And Jennifer your pictures are GORGEOUS! Wow. I would love to win a copy of Rock Star’s Girl. It sounds absolutely delicious. Thanks for having Jennifer around another day so that I could pop over and leave a comment, Ames! Woot! Now pick my name out of the draw, will you??
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *bells, whistles, confetti, squeaky-blowy-zippy thingies* Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday darlin’ Amie (my fellow Okie)! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAHOOOOO
(does the loudest b-day wish help me win?)
AJ & Calisa – I wished Ames a Happy Birthday hours ago! (like it’s a competition, right) Sheesh. :-)
Jennifer-This one’s going on my TBR list! It sounds like a wonderful read!
This book sounds fun…and the cover is awesome!
Happy Birthday, Amie. JL, the book sounds great. Had to laugh at the whole stopping parents from naming their kids Jennifer. My oldest was born in 1986. At that time, I did NOT know a single live person named Jennifer. And my husband loved the name because of Stephanie Powers character, Jennifer Hart on Heart to Heart. So, we named our daughter, Jennifer. And so did everyone else that year. Apparently, Jennifer was the #1 female name for most of the 80’s. Michael was the #1 boy name. Guess what my daughter’s husband is named? Yep. You guess it. Michael. lol! But I still love those names.
They are beautiful names Lilly : ) Happy birthday Amy and lovely to meet you JL!
I love the sound of this book too. Sounds like a great read and the cover truly is divine. I’d love to be in with a chance to win too – as long as you’re okay with international entries? Thanks : )
Oops! Sorry – just seen you need a US address to be in the draw. Never mind – next time! : )
Awh, sorry La Verne. Maybe by the next giveaway I’ll have all of that figured out! :) Thanks for coming by!
The book sounds absolutely amazing. I have been dying to read it just haven’t gotten a chance to buy my copy yet.
Well, good luck! Maybe you’ll win a copy!!
BTW–thank you to everyone for the awesome birthday wishes. Turning 35 was so much fun, I think I’ll do it again next year (and the year after that and the year after that!) LOL
And as much as I’d like to show some love (read favoritism) to all the entries who especially wished me a happy birthday, alas the FCC (uhum…I’ve never really checked this out, but it does good, huh?) demands that I make this a fair and impartial contest. So…I’ll be choosing the winner using random(dot)org. Boring I know, but it seems the fairest way! :)
