Guessing at Normal





SUMMARY



Is life with a rock star ever normal?

Small town girl Jill Griffin has mastered the art of being invisible, so when she falls in love with sexy rocker James Sheridan, at first she is content to live in his larger than life shadow. Building a life together under the glare of the media is challenging, and further complicated by constant touring, James’ partying and the mixed signals she gets from James’ twin brother Alex. What is that guy’s problem?

When her poems and journal ramblings become the songs on James’ best-selling album, Jill has to step out of her comfort zone and figure out how to live her life in a spotlight all her own. As her professional success as a songwriter threatens her relationship with James, Jill begins to wonder if she can write love songs without the love of her life.

MY REVIEW  

Who hasn't thought, "What would it be like to date a Rock Star" ?
It always seems so exciting and glamorous, everyone would envy you and others would want to be you.

Well for Jill Griffin this was now her reality.  She goes from working in a run down motel day in and day out to meeting rock star James Sheridan the next.

It all began at what looked to be a one night stand and then...it turned into something more.

James was sweet, charming, and seemed to be in love with her...what more could she ask for?

Then the day that James asked her to come on the road with him changed her life forever...Should she go?  Can you quit her job and live her life on the road?

The rock star life is not all it's cracked up to be by any means - sex, cheating, drugs, fights, prescription pills - it's not the life for everyone.  Jill endured it day after day - doing things along the way that she wasn't proud of.  A journal became her outlet along the way and little did she know that later that would become her livelyhood.

The twists and turns, ups and downs, will have you craving more till the end!

What will come of Jill and  James?  With their love stand the test of time? Will she find somebody else?  Will he?  As the case with any rock and roll romance, you never know what may happen.

The characterizations are detailed and exciting, the writing intense, perfect for a story of this nature.  Enjoy!


WINE SELECTION

I would pair this piece with Shout It Out Chardonnay.  What better way to rock out and be classy at the same time? 


                                                                        
I would rate this rock star love story - 5 glasses of wine ( I never wanted the story to end or the wine for that matter!)
