Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar by Rachel Higginson

Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar

My name is Clover Calloway and I’ve lived two separate lives. The first, I like to call “my past.” I never talk about it. I try not to think about it. My rockstar days of playing in one of the hottest bands on the planet are over. Along with the most volatile, beautiful, tragic love story of all time. Over the past five years, I’ve settled into my second life. My “normal life.” The one where I work a normal job, hang out with normal p...

    Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar is one of those books that will stick with you for a long time. It’s so much more than a rockstar book. So much more than a second chance romance. Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar is about finding yourself. About figuring out who you are, away from family and friends. Finding your inner peace. Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar is about forgiveness. Forgiving yourself for past mistakes. Forgiving yourself fo...

    4.5 Stars!!“When the two of us were together, we were all that existed in the world.”“This song was going to end us the same way we did five years ago—one gloriously intense bright tragedy.”“I wanted normal. Simple. A love so deep I could feel it with every breath. A love so long and endless and consuming there were not words accurate enough to describe it. A love that would heal me. Hold me. Help me.”“Kai Porter was the devil tha...

    3.5 StarsI enjoyed this sweet, slow-burn romance featuring real, down-to-earth characters. Rachel Higginson's stories always contain romance and a happy ending and 'Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar' is no different! Clover has traded in life on the road as the member of a popular rock band for a life of relative anonymity in the Midwest. She is seemingly content if not a little restless but has an amazing relationship with a wonderful boyfriend...

    I have a weakness for Rock Star Romances...So needless to say, there was a good chance I was going to love this from the gecko.And love it I did!!!I absolutely adore Rachel Higginson. She writes amazing stories and Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar was no different!I really felt for Clover. Nothing had prepared her to face her past the way she did, and what a painful past that was... we always talk about the people with an addiction and not ofte...

    4.5 stars!!Once upon a time Clover was the keyboard player for the popular band, Bright Tragedy. She thought she had it all until everything went up in smoke. Her HEA was ripped from her hands and she left the limelight to pursue a quieter life. Leaving it all behind five years ago, she is finally adjusting to her new normal and trying to be happy. The past still haunts her though, and she has no idea that she’s about to come face to face with ...

    Five years ago Clover had it all. Kind of. She was in a successful band, touring the world and living the celebrity lifestyle. She was in love with the lead a singer Kai a man she met when they were teenagers and had loved ever since then. He loved her back just as hard but unfortunately it was a love that would not survive the choices that Kai made. Clover left and never looked back.Clover now lives a safe, quiet life. She has a few part time jo...

    4.5 starsReview to come! *** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. *** This whirlwind roller coaster got me. My heart is still beating like a drum, to the rhythm of Clover and Malachi’s story. It looked like a tragic song, talking about things that crushed their souls, abusive and destructive, the kind of one that ended badly. And damn if that book didn’t get me emotional. Be ready for a long review… The « normal » li...

    Never fall In Love With A Rockstar took us on the ups and downs and gave us a tumultuous look of sacrifices and heartbreak. How do you let someone go when your heart beats for them constantly? How do you move on knowing that it could possibly break them even more? You do it because the outcome would be far more catastrophic if you don’t. It’s been five years since Clover walked away from the love of her life. Leaving was hard but staying at t...

    kfforever 4.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KindleFriendsForeverThe author’s mind and magic are not new to this reader. She has the cunning ability to spin a story with all the real world feelings anybody else could see themselves experiencing. The story of Clover and Malachai is a tough one to endure at times. Throughout their long relationship, they have overcome so many insurmountable issues. Clover felt the way she did and ma...

    3.5 stars.I read this entire book in one sitting. Unfortunately I started late and wound up going to bed when the sun was coming up. My bad! ;) This isn't a sexy romance. Living with addiction and the fallout that comes with it are the antithesis of sexy. It is a slow burn, second chance story that is fairly angsty. It's told exclusively from the h's (Clover/Clo) POV. It would have been nice to get inside the H's (Malachai/Kai) head for a minute....

    Rockstar books can be tricky but this one packed a punch emotion wise. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this but it was more than I hoped. The ansgt is real here. FYI this has some addiction triggers that may be hard to read but not too in descriptive and a not really triangle. Bright Tragedy had it's ups and downs like any rock group. Two imperfect people that found a second shot through all the chaos of stardom and music. Nothing wort...

    When I found out that Rachel Higginson was going to be writing a rockstar romance, I knew that this was bound to be a winning combination. One of my all-time favorite novels falls within this sub-genre, so I’m a bit fussy when it comes to these novels, but being a fan of this author’s writing, I was more than a little excited to see how she was going to weave her own magic with it.If you’re in the mood for a story that will take you on a sm...

    First, how fun is this cover?!?! I appreciate the artistic beauty of it… no arty couple photo… no half naked man… no close up on the abs. I love it! So unique and original. I’m always in serious awe of this author’s abilities to give us truly different covers! I love when a person dares to stand outside societies norms. The cover is definitely one of my favorites this year!I was surprised how quickly I fell into Never Fall in Love with ...

    Never fall in love with a rockstar; even if you are one yourself! This is an interesting twist on the rockstar trope. Clover was on top of the music world, a household name, playing sold-out stadiums and doing what she loved with her brother, her friends and her boyfriend-since-childhood. But, eventually it was all too much and she left it all behind. She did everything to start a new life. A simple life. A normal life. But, when her old life cra...

    Kai Porter is the typical troubled rockstar, over indulged, a huge ego and he's also the life that Clover ran from. He needs her in his life, he wants her back, but he also knows that it probably isn't possible.Clover Calloway is a normal everyday type of girl, she likes the "normal routine of normal life". After all this is what she wants, she's had the other type of life and it destroyed her. She didn't just leave it behind, she Run!! Yes she l...

    Second chance romances are to be believed inYet another wonderful story from Rachel Higginson. When I first read the blurb I thought ... mmm another rockstar romance ... how wrong was I!! it was so much more. This was deeply emotional, pulling me this way and that, breaking my heart, shattering it to pieces. However, through her extraordinary writing Rachel made this story thoroughly enjoyable to read. This is a romance, but it is a slow burn one...

    I’m in love with this author’s work. Completely in love with her writing style and her characters in each book are so freakin’ awesome! And this book was no exception. What’s better? There’s no ‘hot’ scenes. Not sure about anyone else, but I just can’t read them no more and that made this book extra special. It was ALL story!Clover and Kai... swoon. Their tragic romance was one of fairytales really but the outcome couldn’t have ...

    Rachel Higginson didn't follow the manuel when she wrote Never Fall In Love With A Rockstar. This is not your typical rockstar romance nor is it the typical second chance romance. Rachel boldly stepped out and wrote her own recipe which challenges every emotion. She purposely portrayed the darker side of the music industry and how susceptible individuals can easily fall down the rabbit hole.Malachi Porter and Clover Calloway have more than a hist...

    I have to tell you that my overall reading year has been meh. There have been a few gems and great books from continuing series, but there haven't been many new books to really grab me and pull me in, while I get lost the world the author created. It should surprise me that one of my favorite authors knocked it out of the park with her newest release. and to be really honest, I don't really like stories involving rock stars, but I loved this one!...

    Kai Porter was the devil that had come back into my life, asking me to hand over my soul so he could do what he wanted with it. And I was the idiot that had agreed. Okay indeed. ***My heart may never be the same after finishing this book. I fell too hard and too fast for this story, these characters, this real romance. When I finished I just knew I needed more. I needed more of Malachi and Clover. I needed more of the other characters that were s...

    Adam didn’t know about her past with the band, why she created her new life and the look on his face she couldn’t ruin the night for him because of her past with Blind Tragedy and how it almost broke her.Clover should have known that she wouldn’t be able to go the concert with no one recognising her, the manager lets her know Kai is doing well and sober. Clover thought that would be it, she didn’t expect that the band would want her back,...

    3.5 Blush ReviewThis girl is a HUGE fan of rockstar books so when I saw this book coming I just KNEW I needed it in my life.Clover and Kai have a past that is full of memories, both good and bad, but the bad had taken over and she had to save herself for once.  Leaving Bright Tragedy wasn't an easy decision, leaving the man she had always loved, her friend, her brother and her career but it was necessary for her survival.Five years have passed a...
