The next course for me in the BookSparks University Fall Reading Challenge for 2014 is 90s Music with the required reading of Rock Angel by Jeanne Bogino.
Rock Angel by Jeanna Bogino
About The Book:
Shan is young, beautiful, talented, and addicted to heroin in Rock Angel, a novel that follows her meteoric rise to guitar goddess stardom in the 90s. She is discovered in New York by a handsome, arrogant musical genius named Quinn, and sparks fly between them when he hires her as lead guitarist of his band. Although Quinn is accustomed to bedding a different groupie every night, he can't ignore his deepening feelings for his new bandmate. From gritty Greenwich Village clubs to L.A.'s Troubadour; gigging and touring the country to the cover of Rolling Stone, Rock Angel is infused with the passionate music and intense sexual chemistry of Shan and Quinn. Shan must work out her personal demons and learn to trust Quinn enough to love him, but still remain true to the music that has always been her salvation.
This is a great story. A love story. A story of personal growth. A history lesson, which brings me back to 90's, my hey-day! *wink* This is a truly unique story, and I enjoyed it very much.
