Love of a Rockstar is about Marlene and her 4.5 year old daughter, Nil. Nil’s father is a rock star named Luke – who left when she was pregnant to pursue his career. Since Luke has left, Marlene has moved on and is dating a nice, safe guy named Finn that her mother absolutely adores. But when Marlene shows up at her job at a hotel, she realizes that Luke is back in town and she’s not sure what that means for her. Luke wants to meet Nil and Nil has been asking about her Daddy a lot, but Marlene isn’t quite sure how to handle it. She ends up introducing the two and they both fall in love with each other almost instantly.
Now Marlene is left with a dilemma – does she stay with Finn – who will be opening up a law firm in France, where he wants Marlene and Nil to move with him? Or does she go for Luke – whom she has always loved – but isn’t sure if he will run off and leave her and Nil alone again?
Luke ends up proposing to Marlene – while she is still dating Finn – and she rejects him – FROM ON STAGE. I’m not sure why Luke thought that would be a good idea but the media circus that happened after was probably the best part of the book.
I thought this book was just OK – it was a bit predictable and I didn’t really grow to like the characters – I think I couldn’t get past their names. The little girl’s name was Nil – and they mentioned what it meant in the book (which I can’t remember now) but all I could think about was it meant “zero”! Marlene was also an odd name choice I thought. It was a quick read although I’m not sure the ending would really end up happening in real life if you were the baby mama of a rock star.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
