“Jennifer Chance’s Rock It is perfect for those of us who like our books the way we like our rockers: smart, sexy, sweet, and a damn good time!”—Lexi Ryan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Unbreak Me

Jennifer Chance unleashes her hot new series with the tale of a smoldering rock star and the fangirl who catches his eye—and finds herself living out her wildest dreams.
 
Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.
 
Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.

This started out a little rocky, got interesting, and ended in sweetness.  I didn’t know how I felt about Dante in the beginning, and Lacey’s fangirl persona was a little obnoxious to me frankly.  She waffles frequently between that persona and her professional mask.  While part of the story, it made me want to smack her.  Plus, she’s much more comfortable with his lifestyle than I would be.  I’d be pretty miffed in some of the situations that she just brushes off.   Beyond that, it gets compelling very quickly and even though it’s pretty predictable, it’s a fun story with characters that are likeable in the end if not at first.  I was taken along for the ride with Lacey and ended up appreciating Dante for all his layers.  There’s room for more books with some of these characters, but there’s nothing that suggests it will be a series or needs to be.  I was very comfortable and happy with the story upon closure. Rock It is a story about a rock star in his prime that is contrarily tired of the lifestyle.  In his efforts to change that, he learns that his biggest fan is so much more and their journey is full of ups and downs that make for a funny, sexy, and compelling read.

For years Lacey has always been rocker, Dante Falcone's, number #1 fan. He's even the reason her new job is at IMO Worldwide Media, since he's their number one client. Dante meets with IMO Worldwide Media, sees Lacey, and wants her to be his "handler" on his two week concert tour. Lacey isn't sure that's such a good idea. She has her secrets, and since she's obsessed over Dante for years, she's not sure she'll be able to keep her feelings in check for two weeks. Dante won't take no for an answer and that may not be her only obstacle to overcome…but Dante is in charge and Lacey needs to keep this job… Holy smokes, this is one s-e-x-y romance! I loved it from start to finish, every single word! One of my favorite parts is when Dante told Lacey everyone wants to have sex with her, but he, on the other hand, wants to make love to her. How uber-sexy is that?! Dante is my kind of hero and Ms. Chance knows how to catch and keep a reader's attention with gusto. I will read this book again in the future and I can't stop thinking about it (or talking about it for that matter)! The sex will heat you up and the by-play between the hero and heroine will melt your heart. The supporting characters were needed for the full effect of the story, but if it was just the hero and heroine, I'd have been more than satisfied. I very much hope to read many more books from Ms. Chance! Rock It is a Must Read and by all means, a Keeper!

Rock It is the first book in the New Adult Rule Breakers 4-book series by Jennifer Chance. Rock It is about what happens when a girl’s dreams about a rock star become reality years later when her PR firm is hired to work with him. If you like bad boys, rock stars, and new adult books, this is the series for you. Rock It is fun, escapist romance. Lacey has obsessed over rock frontman Dante Falcone since she was sixteen, making scrapbooks, writing him letters, and seeing him in concert. Now it’s six years later and she has a job as a junior talent agent and has to be Dante’s handler on tour. She is career driven and needs to remain professional though her rock fantasy has come to life. The first book in the Rule Breakers series is fun and flirty, with a relatable hook. It’s easy to connect to Lacey’s teenage obsessions and imagine what would happen if you came face to face with your idol. There are some embarrassing moments for Lacey, though she tries to hold it together as best she can. Dante is not a typical bad boy rocker, or maybe he’s just ready to settle down a little. He’s achieved all his rock star dreams and aspires to something more. Seeing Lacey’s enthusiasm, fresh ideas and belief in him makes him think he can take his career to the next step. Plus, she seems to get him like no one else does. There’s a little dramarama from Lacey’s agency to create some angst in the story. But it’s refreshing that there aren’t any third parties in the romance. Rock It is a fast, enjoyable read, and I liked that workplace and career drama was a focus as well as the romance. And I’m a sucker for music-themed rocker books, what can I say. The next book, Fake It, focuses on Lacey’s friend Anna.

5 star The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well I was kept interested. This is Lacey and Dante’s story. Lacey has crushed on Dante for years. Now she must work for him. He has told her boss that he will only work for her. Now on tour with her secret crush she will need to store up all her defenses. Dante is ready and willing to try and break down every single one of her defenses. When a huge secret comes out what will Lacey end up losing? Can she somehow turn around the bad press and keep Dante and her job? Or are the both gone forever? I loved these characters and also the side characters. There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

Dante Falcone has been starring in Lacey Dawes' dreams since she was a young sixteen.  She has made scrapbooks of his life, tours, music, etc. Lacey gets the chance to work with him as she is with the talent agency that wants to sign Dante.  Unfortunately, her immediate supervisor has set her sights on him and hopes to hook him like a fish.  Dante is turned off by said supervisor and says he will do the 2 week tour, if Lacey is his handler. Lacey is not sure what to think.  The chance to work with Dante will set her career for life.  If she does anything wrong, however, it will sour her career - for life.  The decision is made and Lacey starts to feel set up for failure.  When her supervisor shows up and starts to cause more trouble....Lacey is thinking it is on purpose. Suddenly, scrapbooks are out where all the world can see her longtime crush on the hottie superstar.  Who would do this?  Can Dante forgive her deception?  Has she lost her job too? Surprises abound as Dante wants more than to talk scrapbooks with Lacey and maybe even a future with her at his side. I cannot wait to see what is next in the Rule Breakers series!  Jennifer Chance writes a pretty fast paced book that makes me never want to put the book down!

Loved it.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book to the max. Lacey and Dante were so good together. They were both hiding their feelings for each other but you saw where each of them were coming from. He's a rock star and don't know who he can trust and of course she doesn't want to look like a crazed fan that could possibly unstable.  She got on nerves just a little when she continued to be so undecided with how to handle her feelings for Dante and where to take this relationship.  I loved the way he  threw that twist in there on stage with rockergrrl when professed his love for her and sung a song especially for her. The book was awesome, so much so that I had to pre-order the next book "Fake It". I see now that I will buy the entire series.  I see that Jennifer Chance is not a new author but I'm just discovering her and glad I did.  I will definitely read more of her work

A sweet little story with an air of deceit and regret. I liked the connection between Dante and Lacey and how their relationship progressed. It was believable and not far fetched (well ok, maybe a little lol). I loved the revenge scene and how it all played out. I wish though that it had been more of a kick in the pants lol The final concert scene was awesome *squeal* lol The story seemed to move slow then fast then slow then fast. It was nice to see someone's teen fantasy come to life and how his insecurities played out. The characters were strong and likable and I connected with them right from the start. I would have liked a little more intrigue and depth in the book but over all it was pretty good.

As a big fan of rock star stories, who's read many books with this theme, I was immediately drawn in by the cover and surprising storyline. While I found the hero drool-worthy with unexpected layers the overall execution wasn't what I'd hoped it would be as there wasn't much conflict or character development. Lacey was an awkward teen with an obsession with singer Dante Falcone. She saw something special in him beyond the fabricated persona. She saw him as a kindred spirit whose music helped her get through her teenage years that were far from glamorous. She saw him as a person who she longed to take care of. As an adult she finally gets the opportunity when he chooses her to go on the road with him for two weeks when her talent agency signs him as a client. For so long she's devoted herself to work and getting ahead. She's lost the joy of living and enjoying music just for the happiness of it. Dante reacquaints her with the joys of music and leaves her questioning what she really wants which leads them to an unexpected future where they both make big changes that ultimately lead to HEA. Lacey's behavior as a teen showed a lonely girl making a connection where she could with someone who wouldn't judge her. As an adult she realizes that her actions were a bit over the top and tries to distance herself from her past. She's still full of insecurities though, letting others walk over her, but being around Dante gives her strength. He helps her embrace her wild and carefree side which leads to her sticking up for herself when her jealous boss tries to sabotage her. Dante knew success at an early age with his stardom soon rocketing him to the top. His music has evolved to become more commercial, as has every one of his actions. He's become a commodity and everyone wants a pice of him. No one knows the man behind the rock star persona as an ailing brother in his youth has him devoting time and money to sick children as an adult. These moments are one of the few that bring him joy and satisfaction, along with those nights he plays his own brand of music in small and smoky bars far from his typical fans. He's used to the superficiality of groupies but the moment he sees Lacey he knows she's something special. In her eyes he sees her knowledge of the real him and undertakes a sensuous journey to get her to live life to the fullest, to leave her stress and uptight nature behind. When a jealous agent makes Lacey's past known he could easily run away from the obsessed fan but makes an unexpected decision that changes his and her future forever. I enjoyed Dante immensely as he was sexy and did things just to make Lacey blush. He was truly kindhearted and not obsessed with fame. He's loyal to his band and those few in his inner circle and I was left obsessed with him myself. From its vividly depicted world of rock music with all it's sex, drugs, and alcohol it's easy to get immersed in this story from the first page. Dante's unexpected though as he hasn't become completely corrupted by all the glamour, he's retained his kindhearted side which is refreshing. Lacey is awkward from the start, and though I applaud her empowering transformation, I couldn't overlook her intense teenage attraction which hung over her and Dante's burgeoning relationship and felt a bit icky. The overall storyline felt a bit over-the-top, especially toward the end, but I still felt invested and have great hope for the next book in the series.

I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. Who hasn't fell in love with a rock star? Lacey Dawes has loved Dante Falcone since she was a teen, to the point of making scrapbooks and writing him letters. She has always loved music and now she is working for IMO Worldwide Media, the agency that represents Dante. She is a lowly junior agent and when Dante picks her to be his manager for the two week tour he has scheduled, she is floored and her boss Brenda is not liking it because she wants to seduce Dante herself. She tries to be professional around Dante but he knows she is hiding something. He wants to know what it is. But when he finds out, will he still want to be around her? When things go wrong, will Lacey survive and not lose her heart in the process? This is a first for me by Jennifer Chance and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading more from her.

Rock It is the first book in author Jennifer Chance’s Rule Breakers Series and kicks it off with an enjoyable start. Lacey Dawes’ career as a PA in a major talent agency has really been amazing thus far.  She’s doing everything she could have dreamed of and when the chance to work with major star Dante Falcone is dropped in her lap she can hardly believe it.  I mean he’s been her crush for as long as she can remember.  She knows everything about him from way back when he was a little known teen idol to now…one of the most sought after stars in music.  Sure, she’s beyond thrilled to be working with him but if she’s being honest, she’s pretty terrified too.  But she knows she will be able to keep things on the most professional of levels and will be able to bury her screaming-fan-girl-ish crush, right?  Turns out that is way easier said than done when she starts working with Dante.  How is it possible he could be even more amazing in person?  Oh, she was in so much trouble. Dante Falcone is thankful every day for his fame and success.  He has everything he’s dreamed of and is always working at getting to the next level in his career.  But there’s always been something missing.  He can’t quite figure out was it is, exactly, until he meets Lacey.  There is something about her that draws him in.  It’s almost like he’s met her before.  But surely that can’t be true.  He would remember someone as beautiful and refreshing as she is.  Still, he can’t get her out of his mind.  What better way to keep her around than to insist that she’s the one he wants to head up his latest tour and projects with his new talent agency?  Nothing has ever been out of reach when he sets his sights on it, and Lacey is no exception. I’m always a sucker for a Rock God meets fresh-faced girl story and Rock It totally delivered.  Dante is the ultimate rocker with a soft side and big heart and the desire to find love and Lacey totally fits that bill.  One of the things I liked best about Lacey was her very real reactions when she’s around Dante.  Her plan of being professional and composed completely fly out the window and more often than not she ends up fumbling over her words and actions because, let’s face it, wouldn’t you if you had to work with your ultimate celeb crush?  I know I would!  It’s those reactions that made her a very endearing character and one I really enjoyed reading.  And the chemistry between Dante and Lacey is totally scrumptious! I am looking forward to more in this series and to see where Jennifer takes us!
