Too Many Rock Stars by Candy J. Starr
(Access All Areas, #1)
Publication date: October 30th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
I don’t date rockers. Don’t sleep with them. Don’t even swap spit. I’ve been working as a band booker at Trouble — the coolest indie rock club in town — long enough to know what a bunch of screwed up, egotistical jerks they are. Some of them might seem okay at first but that’s just because they’ve learnt to hide it better than others.
That would be fine if Razer didn’t keep popping into my office, making himself so annoyingly attractive. And he only gets more insistent when the leather-clad Alex hits town.
While they compete for both rock glory and my affection, I get stuck in the middle but all I really want to do is save my job and the club.
That’s the trouble with my life: too many rock stars.

Violet manages the bookings for the bands at a club. She has one rule she lives by: No Dating Rock Stars. Razer has been after her for a while. He flirts and tries to get close to her, but she keeps pushing him away. Alex is the new guy who wants to be booked at the club and seems interested in Violet as well. When the club has money trouble, the two guys decide to compete in a contest for a date with Violet PLUS drum up excitement for the club and prove who the best performer is. Will either one win Violet’s heart or will she keep true to her rule.
“’Your boyfriends are getting a bit snarly with each other out there. Again. I’ve dealt with them out for the moment but you need to get this sorted out.’
‘There’s nothing to sort.’
‘Deny it all you want. You have two hot guys chasing after you. Pick one.’
‘I pick neither but they won’t believe me. Too many rock stars, that’s my problem.’
She snorted again. ‘There’s only two of them.’
‘Two is way too many. The ideal number of rock stars is zero.’”
This is a cute, angsty story with rockers. I have a thing for rockers. How could Violet think that zero rockers is a good thing? There isn’t a ton of heat in this book. As soon as anything gets going, Violet has her hang ups or gets interrupted. There is a little bit of a love triangle going on that keeps you guessing about who she will choose or will win the contest and does she truly want anyone to win. I felt torn most of the book because I wanted Violet to get in touch with her feelings instead of pushing them down and feeling guilted to throw herself into her work.
Since this is book one in this series, I assume we will get more books about the characters that were introduced in this story. I liked Carlie and the others enough that I would like to read more about them. It will be fun to see where their lives take us and if we meet any more cute rock stars.
About The Author
Candy J. Starr used to be a band manager until she realized that the band she managed was so lacking in charisma that they actually sucked the charisma out of any room they played. “Screw you,” she said, leaving them to wallow in obscurity – totally forgetting that they owed her big bucks for video equipment hire.
Candy has filmed and interviewed some big names in the rock business, and a lot of small ones. She’s seen the dirty little secrets that go on in the back rooms of band venues. She’s seen the ugly side of rock and the very pretty one.
But, of course, everything she writes is fiction.
