Jennifer Chance unleashes her hot new series with the tale of a smoldering rock star and the fangirl who catches his eye—and finds herself living out her wildest dreams.

Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.

Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.

What I thought about Rock It

What would you do if you really had the opportunity to connect with your childhood celebrity crush? And what if he returned those feelings?

Rock It! was a nice little love story between Lacey and Dante. Lacey has been a fan of Dante’s for years and when she has the opportunity to work for him for two weeks, it isn’t long before she gives in to some of those old feelings.

Dante is a rock star, former child star with a huge career and a big heart he hides from the public. When he meets Lacey, he finds someone he can trust, someone he’s drawn to and wants to be with. Of course things are complicated because Lacey is working, and she’s trying to maintain her career and professionalism. And Lacey has to contend with a boss that’s not too happy about the time Lacey gets to spend with Dante, setting things up for something awful.

I liked this. I thought it captured the whole celebrity crush aspect nicely, and I liked the chemistry between Lacey and Dante. If you are looking for a sweet rock-star romance, this might be for you. There’s a nice bit of heat, and I thought Jennifer Chance does a good job of depicting the rock star life style.

A fun read.

About Jennifer Chance
I come by romance honestly, having spent several years writing adult romance and entering romance contests through Romance Writers of America–including finaling twice in the prestigious Golden Heart contest and winning once. But despite these and other contest wins, my first published novel came not in adult romance, but as a writer of YA historical fiction (you can read all about my Elizabethan spy girls stories, the Maids of Honor, here.)

Still, despite my love of Elizabethan spies, I could never quite give up those super Alpha contemporary romance heroes. So, in the summer of 2013, I decided to see if perhaps I might still have a romance or two up my sleeve.
I wrote a tale about a girl whose biggest high-school and college crush–a rock star–suddenly becomes her biggest client, only now she has to be professional and not betray the fact that she’s completely in love with the guy. It was a fun, sexy, romantic fantasy, and I suggested the idea to my agent… who asked what other ideas I had in addition to this story. Shortly after, the Rule Breakers series was born.

To separate these books from my historical work, I adopted the name Jennifer Chance. I am now pursuing my dreams (pretty much round the clock as it turns out) and am THRILLED to be able to have four e-books coming out in 2014 and early 2015, all with Random House LoveSwept’s New Adult romance line.
As to what will happen from here, who knows? But as long as there is a story to be written and an HEA to be had, I’ll be the one over in the corner, tapping away on my keyboard.
