Taking The Stage (The Complete 5-Part Series) by Emma Rose
Series-Taking The Stage (Parts 1-5)
Reviewed by Kay
Therese is a very full-figured gal and she's comfortable with that. She has a spoiled younger sister who is described as skinny. Her sister says some things that I considered hurtful regarding Therese's weight. I only mentioned that because Therese is very selfless where her sister is concerned. Nikki, the sister, loves rock star, Max Stone. Therese ends up winning tickets and back stage passes to his bands' upcoming concert. So, she and Nikki go. When they get in the limo Max is in there. Therese doesn't recognize him and this thrills him.
After the concert, there's a party where Therese and Max hook up. This torrid experience sets things in fast forward. There's an angry ex-girlfriend, curious family members and Therese's disbelief at Max's sincerity regarding his interest in her. The parts to this book are very short which is why I am reviewing them together. I liked reading it but it didn't blow me away. I don't know if it was the fast pace or maybe lack of character development. Maybe both. I would read Emma Rose again though because I did like it. I always like to buy into the fantasy of a hot guy falling for the less than waifish heroine.
