Overview

"Rock Star" is the highly anticipated sequel to Ginger Voight's Rock and Roll Rubenesque saga, which began with the sizzling debut of "Groupie." For those who have been anxious to see what has become of Andy, Vanni and Graham... buckle your seat belts. You're in for a thrilling new ride right through the dark underbelly of fame.

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

In addition to being a freelance writer and author, Ginger Voight is an optioned screenwriter who has completed eight feature length screenplays since 2002. This prolific novelist has several ebook and print editions of her work available, including the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.

Having grown up on Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger both reads and writes a variety of genres from kids' books to horror. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of potent genres like horror, suspense and romance.

Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. Today Ginger writes romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman that what is traditionally represented in the media. Her Rubenesque series was created especially for those romantic heroines with fuller figures...who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. These titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE and GROUPIE. Her contemporary, Rubenesque titles have even won her category best-selling distinctions on the romance e-Books websites.

She has been featured on the Hal Sparks Radio Program from Chicago's Progressive Talk Radio, and formerly moderated for Hal's U-Stream Chat Room on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six word memoir. Additionally you can read her essay KISSED BY A MUSE published on the website for Smith Magazine's 2011 project "The Moment." It demonstrates how an influential teacher and a spark of creative thinking changed an 11-year-old's perspective in an instant and gave her a passion for a lifetime.

Ginger is an activist and philanthropist, whose brave and noble family provides the main inspiration for her stories as well as the courage to follow her dreams. She lives with her husband, her two fantastic sons and a menagerie of four-legged, furry children, including a singing Pug named Winston Q. Pooter.

    This is the second book in The Groupie Trilogy and boy do things

    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 ther

    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)
