Welcome to my stop in the Between a Rockstar and a Hard Place blog tour.
What its all about
Blurb: Behind the music…
Being best friends with a mega-star has its perks and Nicole Wilde, music journalist, laps them up. But when said friend, Dylan King, gorgeous lead singer of The Burnouts, has zero sense of self-preservation – once a drop of alcohol hits his blood stream ‒ and an inability to keep ‘little Dylan’ in his pants, it also comes with responsibilities. Now, Nicole has to track down Dylan in time to play a charity gigtomorrow. Half a dozen groupies, a haunted hotel, a tattoo parlour, a reality show runner-up and a crazy bed-hopping, sleepless night later – will she find him before the tour bus leaves town? And when she does, is it time to head home? Or to jump on the tour bus and go along for the ride!
What I thought
Between a Rockstar and a Hard Place is a novella by Portia McIntosh. Although it is quite a bit shorter than what I expected it was a really fun read. I have said on numerous occasions that ‘I don’t so funny’ but this wasn’t a writer trying to write comedy. It was naturally funny, and most certainly unforced.
I would have liked it to be longer, and while reading Portia’s bio I learned that she has a whole catalogue of material to fuel her books. However like most writers these days, I am sure she has a job and a life, I am just glad she wrote it at all. But do you know what, this was a nice break from the norm for me. Having been sick for a few days and skimming over a book I have already read this book brought some much needed light relief. It’s almost short enough to be a lunch time read. I read it in about an hour, this morning, cos we all know about my organisational skills 😉
I also got to read the start of Portia McIntosh’s next book and I am really looking forward to reading that! She had definitely made it on to my must read authors list!
Available Feb 20th
Happy edit 🙂
I have just been informed by Portia that the next installment is full length. BRING.IT.ON
