don't mention the rockstarI received a review copy


They fell in love in an instant … so why have they spent a lifetime apart?

As a teenager Kellie dated an American boy but circumstances meant they went their separate ways. Now he’s back and she’s so tempted to see him again. But two decades have passed and they are both married with children.
And the last thing a celebrity reporter like her needs is the world finding out about her past relationship with a rock star. Especially as Kellie’s husband doesn’t even know she once dated AJ Dangerfield, lead singer of legendary band Danger Game. And she has no intention of him finding out. EVER.
As Kellie deals with a demanding boss, a bullied son, an infuriating mother-in-law and a best friend who won’t act her age, she finds herself playing a dangerous game. What will happen if her two worlds collide? And is it possible that first love never fades?


Don’t Mention the Rock Star was a quick read, thanks to the short and snappy sections, and to the point plot. We bounce around from Kellie’s past and present, meeting the boy she dated back in the day, and learning about the man she married. This book was really interesting because it discusses the question of can we ever forget our first love, and the added twist in here is that Kellie’s first love went on to become a successful rock star – and now he’s back on the scene. There are plenty of other twists and turns along the way, including one that really took me by surprise. Sometimes I did feel a lack of connection with Kellie, but I honestly haven’t been able to figure out why and it didn’t hinder my entire reading experience. Definitely thought-provoking – give it a read!

3.5 stars
