Date with a Rockstar is about Monet, a teenager who decides to enter a competition to win a date with Jeremy Bane – a rockstar who is having a reality show to date him – in order to try and win the prize money. She has a disease called Fluxem that is passed through saliva which can be cured with a series of shots – that cost too much for her or her mother to afford. The prize money, however? Just what she needs to buy herself the cure.
Monet, unsurprisingly, makes it to the Top 10 in the competition. Each episode one of the girls goes on a date with Jeremy and at the end, the fans of the show will choose the Top 3 that get to move on. As with any reality show, there’s a twist – where the producers try to dig up whatever dirt they can on the contestants. They don’t end up revealing she has Fluxem but they do reveal something that she didn’t even know about herself!
Monet seems to have hit it off with Jeremy from the start, and they are always bumping into each other and getting more time together – which of course annoys the other contestants.
I won’t give away what happens…
I really enjoyed this book and I liked that it seemed to take place in the future or somesort of alternate reality where there no longer was a statue of liberty? I don’t think it was ever really mentioned in the book though, I just kept picking up on things mentioned throughout which was kind of weird. Unless I missed it. I did kind of want to know how it all ended so I speed-read at times! But it is definitely a fun read for anyone who dreams of winning a date with a rock star 😉
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Only one girl will win the cash prize…and a chance at love with Jeremy Bane.
Monet isn’t just another lust-struck teenager trying to win the heart of Rock God Jeremy Bane–she needs the prize money from his new reality show to cure her illness.
Monet has Fluxem, a contagious disease that’s spread through saliva. It’s completely curable if you have enough money, which she and her single mother don’t. Now that she’s on the show, Monet has to work harder to keep her Fluxem hidden. She only has to keep the secret long enough to woo Jeremy Bane so he picks her as the winner. She doesn’t even care about the love part; the prize alone will change her life.
But the real Jeremy Bane is nothing like she imagined. Monet finds herself fighting against feelings that make her want to give in to her attraction and Jeremy’s attempts for a kiss. The further she goes in the competition, the more impossible it becomes to resist him–and when the producers turn the tables and start digging up dirt on the contestants, Monet fears her secret will be revealed before she’s ready and ruin everything.
The only way to win Jeremy’s heart is to tell him the truth, but confessing her disease could cost her the competition, the prize money, and him
