 ‘A thrilling and delicious story of love and self-discovery woven around a broken romance that will make you turn page after page and cheer to the end.’

Love, life, loyalties. Nothing stays the same when Emily gets drawn into the world of rock.

Glossy and sophisticated professional high-flyer Emily has no time for nonsense such as the rock music her ex-boyfriend Nate adored so much. Yet when she unexpectedly comes into possession of VIP tickets—access all areas—for new rock band phenomenon, MonX, she can’t resist the temptation.

The fateful gig turns into more than one night, and Emily finds herself strangely drawn to this new and unfamiliar glittery world. However, only weeks later, MonX and her own universe fall apart with devastating consequences for all. When MonX lead singer Mike appeals for her help, she reluctantly embraces a new opportunity. But she soon discovers that while she may be a rock chick after all, a groupie she is not… Or is she?

Just exactly where do her loyalties lie? And what direction will her life take now that she’s left behind everything she treasured?

Warning! Fallen For Rock contains some explicit content and strong language that may not be suitable for readers under eighteen years of age.
My Review 

I always get excited when I know that Nicky Wells has a new book coming out. Why? Because they are absolutely amazing!!!! When it was first suggested to me way back that I check out her series of Rock Star romances I was initially skeptical. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved them. Nicky Wells delivers yet another action packed very sexy read in Fallen For Rock. Yet again, we have another rock star oozing sex appeal and charisma. I love the references to music throughout the book and found myself going and checking out the songs. And yes, I did end up buying Bon Jovi's greatest hits after I read the book. 

Each of the characters brings their own gifts to the story. Emily is strong willed and stubborn and I loved that about her. Despite her fears and reservations she goes on a journey of self discovery and becomes open to changes she would never have dreamed about. At the heart of it Love for two men in her life - the sex on legs Mike and her lost love Nate............both at very different spectrums of the love scale, but loved nonetheless. However, soon another love affair develops for Emily. A love affair with the rock star lifestyle and the music.

Fallen for Rock will have you singing out loud, jumping for joy, crying along with Emily and jumping into the cold shower. How many books can you say will do all that? Yet again I have a book crush on another of Nicky's characters...........the bad boy of rock, Mike. His sex appeal and charisma jump off the page and like Emily, I'd have followed him anywhere!

Fallen for Rock is about taking chances when your heart and head are in constant battle. Its about change and not sitting back waiting for the world to come to you............go out and grab it with both hands! Thank you so much to Nicky Wells for giving me the opportunity to read Fallen For Rock............It rocks!!!
The Magic of Rock

‘It’s the magic of rock,’ Nate’s voice whispered in my head, and I jumped. For a second, I felt a little tearful. ‘The magic of rock’ was one of his favourite expressions, but I had always laughed it off. Oh, if only Nate were with me. Maybe the magic of rock would magically fix us, too.
~Excerpt from Fallen for Rock

The magic of rock. This is one of the key phrases in Fallen for Rock. In fact, it’s what the book is all about. Falling for the magic of rock.

Now, as you can see, Emily doesn’t get it. At least not at the beginning. My challenge was to make her understand. So what is it, this ‘magic of rock’? What does it mean? Well, let’s see.

It’s all about contradictions. Tough men with long hair. Bad boys with golden voices. Loud music with complex harmonies. Pounding rhythms and power ballads.

A good rock song is like a mini symphony. It’s deceptive in its simplicity, and it gets people singing along. It gets people involved with music. A rock concert is a living, thriving body of musicians on stage and off stage. The audience turns into a massive choir and percussion set. Everyone becomes part of something larger, something unique and extraordinary, something that leaves no room for everyday worries. For those two hours, the fans get swept away and transported to another place where everything is (nearly) perfect.

A good rock musician is a skilled as a classical performer, and in many more ways than ‘just’ performing. Rock musicians doesn’t ‘just’ make music. They also know about acoustics and the technology that makes it happen, for them on stage and for the audience in the hall. And they’re performers—entertainers, sometimes comedians, occasionally magicians. The show is about a lot more than ‘just’ the music. It’s an experience.

Last but not least, rock music is ‘real.’ I know, that sounds like another contradiction, doesn’t it? How can it be real when the instruments are largely electric? Electric guitars, electric bass, keyboards. But see, this is just superficial. The ‘electric bit’ only augments the sound. All the playing is real. There’s no (or very little) sampling, no automated drumming or chords. And the subject matter is real. More often than not, rock music is about ‘real stuff.’ Bad days at work, being out of work, drug use and abuse, falling in and out of love. Rock music touches people because it’s relevant to them.

This is the magic of rock, all of it put together. Powerful music with strong melodies; contradictions, and involvement, and keeping it real. On stage, the whole thing is underscored by light shows and stage effects that add drama and literally immerse you in that world.

Does Emily get it by the end of the book? You’ll find out... Happy reading, and rock on!
