    ~*4 Star Review*~I received a complimentary copy of Fan Girl from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was a bit skeptical about reading Fan Girl, because I'm not a fan of rock star romance. Generally, they are cliche, and filled with disgusting language. Fan Girl was a breath of fresh air to that affect.We are introduced to a young, Ali Dawson-Pierce. Unlike most young teens, she is comfortable in her own skin, although she is short an...

    Fan Girl by Brandace Morrow is a 2014 independent publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Deklan and Ali meet before Deklan becomes a rock star. Ali is a teenager at the time and she's a little on the heavy side and is dealing with her parents who are mapping out her life for her. Like a lot of teenage girls Ali is smitten by the rock star image and the excitement of hanging around with the band. As Ali pr...

    Brandace has written a great debut novel! She has literally written every woman's dream!One of the things I really enjoyed about this story is how committed the couple are to one another - there isn't massive amounts of teenage style drama. This is a mature relationship. And Ali is very relatable. We've all felt worthless for some reason or another. But I love how she takes charge of her life and changes it for the better.Without giving too much ...

    This story is ridiculous. I skimmed most of it cause I wanted to see just how absurd things could get. This story was weird and Ali really had a horse shoe up her ass with all the amazing things that happened to her. Also in this day and age, with technology and social media websites, I am sure somewhere in the 7+ years Dek and the band members who worked with Bobby ( Ali's best friends brother and popular photographer) would've seen a picture of...

    This is the story of Ali and Deklan. I loved the first half of the book, but didn't enjoy the second half as much. Not a lot happened. There was nothing to overcome and no real conflicts to resolve.

    5 Fan Girling Stars I typically love rock star romances, so when the opportunity presented itself to review Fan Girl for the official blog tour, I was all over it. Fan Girl is fabulous because it steps outside the box. Brandace Morrow is a fabulous story teller. She develops her characters so well and tells the story so flawlessly that I became lost in Ali’s world. Ali is super young when we begin the story, 15 to be exact, a little rebellious ...
  • ***Cheryl***
    This is the debut novel from Brandace Morrow. It was a great debut novel and I really enjoyed it. It’s a great rock star.The story is about Ali who we first meet when she is 15 and a bit of rebel. She often goes to gigs with her best friend which is where she first meets Deklan and his band Rolling Bridges. Ali quickly becomes their number 1 fan from day one and in a way by posting videos of the band they find fame. Ali always thought someone l...

    First off let me say that I had the privilege to beta this book and I was in love with it from the beginning. This book had me hooked from and I wanted to know more about what was going to happen. I laughed, cheered, scream and shouted and than I was mad because I didn't want to leave their lives. I loved the fact that Ali never really conformed to the way that people thought that she should be or her parents. She was an outspoken chubby, quick w...
  • Kandace
    3.5-4 stars. I loved the first half of this story hard. I think every girl could easily relate to Ali. Ali first meets the hunky rocker Deklan when she was a chunky awkward teenager. Deklan is ever young girls fantasy. His band starts off playing local gigs round the city and Ali would tag along with her best friend and friend's brother. Ali becomes the bands number one fan. The band adores Ali. Eventually the band gets picked up and becomes an o...

    Let me preface this review by saying it's not often you read a debut novel and think I LOVE THIS BOOK. But, I totally did love this book. I couldn't put it down and when I did I couldn't get Deklan off my mind.The characters are so relatable. Ali starts off as this insecure girl with weight issues but she grows up and grows into her kick-ass body. She has a kick-ass personality, too. She's strong, witty, and independent - she's definitely someone...

    view my full review at as I loved the story and the characters, Deklan was hot in bed and out of it. Ali was a fiesty, beautiful young women. Both Ambitous and know what they want in life. The love these guys shared was beautiful and real. That being said Brandace Morrow has a great writing style, very different... in a good way. I enjoyed her style of writing and would love to see more from this Author....
  • Kristina Noelle
    I was very excited when I saw this book. I have to admit that I am one of those fan girls who imagined what it feels like to be with a rockstar crush. Who doesn't?! There are moments that I really can relate to Ali but I just thought that her life was too perfect (from the moment she went to New York). I was looking for more conflict wherein the characters can grow more. Maybe, her life is what every fan girl would want to have.. and yeah, maybe ...

    4.5I just finished Fan Girl by Brandace Morrow & loved it! It's a unique twist to the Rockstar Stories we normally read. I loved the way Ali & Deklan's life started out to where it ended. Ali is unique heroine that a lot of us can relate to especially girls who are reading YA/NA Genres. The sex was steamy and the rocker was delicious! I loved this book! Deklan is so a new top 10 BBF loove that sexy rocker! & Love Ali she is such an awesome heroin...

    ** DEBBIE'S 4.5 STAR REVIEW ** Let me start off by saying this book is not your typical Rock Star romance novel. I loved this book and honestly could not put it down and was sad when I finished it. The author wrote this book with not all your typical rock star stereotypes. The characters were so relatable and I still can’t get this book out of my mind.This book follows the lives of Ali Dawson-Pierce and Deklan Thomas. Ali is Rolling Bridges num...

    Book one in the Los Rancheros Series.I gave this book 5 Rockin Stars.I wasn't to sure about this book when I started reading it. BUT for anyone that has ever been a fan girl this is a must read! I fell in love with these two main characters the more that I continued to read. They're not your same ol same ol characters that you're always reading about in the rocker books. Ali is a normal girl who grows up with parents that care more about their st...

    I received a complimentary copy of Fan Girl in exchange for an honest review!Brandace Morrow has given us a great debut novel! She took us inside Ali's world as she went from a chunky teenager that couldn't do anything to make her parents happy, to a fit & healthy adult who knew what she wanted and went after it! Ali has always owned who she was, not caring what anyone else thought! Music has always been her escape....especially the band Rolling ...
  • Diana
    Another great read of this year! Brandace Morrow's debut novel succeeded to give me goosebumps and smiles, made me happy and dreamy. Just what I needed now. The story talks about Ali Dawson, a 15 years old girl, who has a difficult relationship with her parents. This is the reason why she doesn't think too much to leave her old life behind when her grandparents offer her to go to LA for college. With their help and also her best friend's contribu...

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.I heard the word 'Fan Girl' and saw the word 'Rocker' and told myself why not give it a try. I was glad I read this one because it had a different look on the whole rock star romance theme. The characters were funny and loveable and for a debut novel the author did an excellent job.The story revolves aroundAli Dawson Pierce.Ali's parents has money but didn't share the love that she wanted to expe...
  • Stephanie Marshall
    Ali is not the girl next door and this is not your typical rock star love story. Ali first encounters Deklan Thomas when he is just beginning in his music career with his band Rolling Bridges, the days of practicing in the garage and playing in small dive bars. But she had a feeling that the band had something special. Deklan’s voice and his songs mean so much to her and help her throughout her journey of growth and self-discovery.When Deklan m...
  • Haley
    It must just be me, but I really, really did not enjoy this one. Not at all. Not even a little. I finished it, but not for any real desire.The first third of the book is all backstory, but it is told in such a jumpy, haphazard manner that it is hard to get a real feel for the character (not to mention it is another one of those "the fat girl loses weight and suddenly everything is perfect" trope-y tales that really rubs me the wrong way). The res...
  • Tiffy
    Gifted a copy for an Honest Review. Fan Girl by Brandace Morrow is about Ali and Deklan. The Rock Star and the Fan who has been following the band for years lusting over the lead singer. I am soo conflicted on how I want to write this review, finished Fan Girl days ago and just can't seem to put a review together in my head. Now don't take that as bad, this book was wonderful!!! I just suck with words and can't string them together like most revi...

    Wow, this is a long ass book but one that was brilliantly written and kept me hooked throughout! Who knew starting out with the fan girl side of the story you'd end up with the Los Rancheros side of things but that's just how far the story between Ali and Dek takes you!Ali is a innocent 15 yr old who has a passion for music and especially Deklan's band. Little did she know that her obsession with this band would lead her to a future with the band...
