When Jonah Riley’s father dies unexpectedly, he, his grieving mother and ailing sister are forced to move from the country to Austin, Texas. Jonah finds work at an auspicious night spot called Southern Nights, where he earns a few extra bucks as a bouncer-turned-musician. There he meets fiery songstress Lacy Abernathy, who has no use for him or anyone else in the club when she’s not on stage. This is an entirely new experience for this ladies’ man. The opportunistic club owner latches onto this chemistry to fill her club, playing with their hearts and livelihoods for her own questionable motives. Enter music executive Graham Baxter, who offers them both a way out…by competing for a recording contract they both need. Now if only they can fight the intense chemistry that keeps them locked in battle, when they're not locked in each other's arms, that is!
|I just finished Southern Rocker Boy and I really enjoyed it. It was a refreshing change from what I have read recently. Jonah's dad has died and now he with him being the man of the house, he has to take care of his family. Hes a good ole country boy that only wants to be able to help his family so he takes on a job at a factory which then leads him to a bouncer at Southern Nights. This is where he meets Lacy. She a singer with an attitude and secrets. Friendship blooms rather begrudgingly between the rocker and the country boy. But what happens when the country boy starts to take her limelight? Being famous is not what it is all cracked up to be. Will the couple stand a chance against the obstacles that will be thrown in their way? You will just have to read and see.|
I enjoyed the story, I thought that it flowed well and again that it was refreshing to read a rocker book. I was immersed from the beginning and couldn't put it down. I felt at times I was there in the story right with Jonah and Lacey but at times I felt a disconnect when they would be singing. I still enjoyed it thought. I like the whole working for your family no matter what but then how far do you go to try and not sell your soul aspect. Its interesting to see how far people will go.
I really liked Jonah. He is just a good man and I want nothing but his worry to go away. I understand the choices that he makes but also like the fact that even though his appearance changed, his feelings, his soul did not. I liked Lacy. She was spunky and feisty and honestly her type of attitude complemented Jonahs well. He needed saucy :) I liked their chemistry. Very sweet and very sexual.
Im addicted and cannot wait to see how this goes, wasnt expecting the ending but thought that it was for the best!

Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD. Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance. Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY, THE FULLERTON FAMILY SAGA, THE LEFTOVER CLUB and PICTURE POSTCARDS. Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir. a Rafflecopter giveaway
