Overview

In the second book in the series, readers get insight into the mind of the romantic hero, Giovanni Carnevale, as he reaches the pinnacle of success as a world wide rock star. Everyone wants a piece of him, but all he wants is the one thing he can't have. He's angry and he's entitled, with ample opportunity to make really bad decisions. The combination proves explosive.

Andy must watch from the sidelines as her beloved Vanni falls victim to grifters, scandals and alcoholism thanks to this self-destructive behavior. Things come to an emotional head when his estranged father comes on the scene just when Vanni thinks things can't get any worse.

Darkness shadows Graham Baxter as he begins his journey as a paraplegic. The powerful mogul bitterly handles this new vulnerability by lashing out at the people who could help him the most. He needs Andy more than ever, pulling her in yet another hopeless direction. Andy is put in the impossible situation of keeping the most important promise she has ever made, or saving the man that she can't help but love.

Author Ginger Voight turns up the scandals, secrets, passion and heartbreak to 11. Flawed characters face excess and all the pitfalls that entails. They fight as hard as they can to hold onto anything real in the fake world of celebrity.

Meet the Author

Ginger Voight is a screenwriter and bestselling author with over twenty published titles in fiction and nonfiction. She covers everything from travel to politics in nonfiction, as well as romance, paranormal, and dark, “ripped from the headlines” topics like Dirty Little Secrets. Ginger discovered her love for writing in sixth grade, courtesy of a Halloween assignment. From then on, writing became a place of solace, reflection, and security. This was never more true than when she found herself homeless in L.A. at the age of nineteen. There, she wrote her first novel, longhand on notebook paper, while living out of her car. In 1995, after she lost her nine-day-old son, she worked through her grief by writing the story that would eventually become The Fullerton Family Saga. In 2011, she embarked on a new journey—to publish romance novels starring heroines who look more like the average American woman. These "Rubenesque" romances have developed a following thanks to her bestselling Groupie series. Other titles, such as the highly-rated New Adult series, Fierce, tap into the "reality-TV" preoccupation in American entertainment, which gives her contemporary stories a current, pop culture edge. Known for writing gut-twisting angst, Ginger isn’t afraid to push the envelope with characters who are perfectly imperfect. Whether rich, poor, sweet, selfish, gay, straight, plus-size or svelte, her characters are beautifully flawed and three-dimensional. They populate her lavish fictional landscapes and teach us more about the real world in which we live simply through their interactions with each other. Ginger’s goal with every book is to give the reader a little bit more than they were expecting, told through stories they'll never forget.

This is the second book in The Groupie Trilogy and boy do things get complicated. Vanni is extremely resentful that Andy decided to stay by Graham's side as he recuperated from his gunshot wound he received while saving her life. Because of this Andy & Vanni are not together. We watch Vanni begin to drink to the point that it begins to effect his career and a member decides he needs to leave the band. After rehab he tries to reconnect with Andy but she soon realizes that both Vanni and Graham are having a pissing match over her and she needs to stop letting them both manipulate her & her feelings. Vanni grows close to Holly & her brother ...where will that leave Andy? I cannot say enough good things about this trilogy! It's one of the best I've read and book three (Mogul) is EPIC!

Wowza! This second book does not disappoint. I do wish that there first person POVs, but I thought there was an advantage in third person, as I felt there was more story from characters that way. Like book 1, there is a whole lot of drama, just wow! Andy is trying to not let Vanni, who is developing a drinking problem, get to her, even though its so tempting. But, she has a priority, and that's making sure that Graham is healing ok, as he basically saved her life, and now is partially paralyzed. Vanni still thinks that she and Graham are more, but honestly, I did not like Vanni, in this story, except towards the end...but yeah I was actually rooting for Andy and Graham for a while. This story has so many twists and turns, and new conniving characters, that definitely are good at what they are: grifters. There's just so much story in this one, and towards the end, I definitely wanted to read more, but now, I'm metaphorically in a biting nails situation, because I seriously don't know what to expect in the last book in this trilogy, Mogul! My Rating: 3.8/5I say R-Rated! 17+ (Some Strong Language & Sexual Content)
