Alpha Rockstar
by Emma Rose

Genre: Adult Romance
Format: eBook
Source: Received from author and Bit N' Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

She’s reaching for a lifelong dream.

Penelope has made a living taking concert photos for the newspaper entertainment section, but her dreams are much bigger. She dreams of getting close with a rock and roll band and taking pictures of everything, immersing herself in the rock and roll lifestyle. 

He’s searching for a life beyond the stage.

She gets her chance when a band on tour invites her to join them for a few weeks, but Penelope has reservations…is she being invited along because they want a photographer, or because Marcus, the quiet but attractive lead singer, wants to sleep with her? And what would she say if he tried?

I'm a big fan of rockstar romances, so as soon as I came across this tour, I joined up. Glad I did, too because this was an extremely short, but fun read.

The best thing about this book is the main character. Penelope is not some skinny chick like most that frequent the realm of rockstars, so she has some hang ups when Marcus the lead singer of a very popular band seems attracted to her. She has some body image issues that Marcus doesn't seem to notice and that makes her extremely cautious of him. But their first meeting is super cute and all interactions to follow are even cuter. 

I think this book gives the reader just a glimpse into what goes on backstage and on tour buses. I can only imagine that real life is worse, but for this book I'm glad it wasn't because it might have overshadowed the romance a bit. So overall, I was pleased with that, though I really wished the story had been longer. It was very hard to connect with the characters at the length it was but that's okay. It's a serial and that's to be expected, right?

Overall, I liked what I read and I've already purchased parts two and three. If you're looking for a short romance with a nice sprinkle of hotness, this is a good one to try.

Emma Rose is quickly rising as a new author with a lot to offer. She specializes in the steamy romance genre with popular series THE BILLIONAIRE'S PROPOSAL, TAKING STAGE, THREE, and STRIPPED. She self-published her first book in 2011 and has since risen to a Top 100 author in Amazon's Erotica category, among others. Part of her quick rise can be attributed to her small, but growing, group of fans who promote her work and offer her feedback as Beta Readers, an offer she extends to potential fans at the end of each of her works. Interested fans can apply to her beta reader program and receive one of her works for free through her website.
