This book and I did not click in the beginning. I felt the transitions between past and present were confusing. I stuck with the book and about a third the way through it finally clicked for me of what was going on.
Even though I didn’t love the book, it was a cute story. I liked the main character Sophie. She was a lot of fun. Her best friend was great. She really made the connection between the two guys. We should all have a best friend like her.
I did like Dan as well. While he was not pushy, he was sweet and knew how to make the moves. Who wouldn’t want to fall in love with a rock star? Or have a rock star pay that much attention to them. I was a little skeptical about the band coming back and having their time again, but it worked.
Lots of fun going on in this book with the young love and relationships. If you like the fairy tale idea of meeting up with a rock star, give this book a try.

What a great book! Definitely a must read! I was completely hooked and can't wait to read Sophie's Run! Sophie had boyfriend Tim and the "love" of her fantasies came back into the picture! I laughed out loud, was frustrated but mostly completely enthralled in this romantic story! I highly recommend, this a must read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

First Thoughts After…..
Fun read and ready for the next in February……Killing me!!!! And yes I’ve informed Nicky of the fact that I AM dying here…..
Sophie is content in her life. She’s been dating Tim for 2 years and she has a decent job! There is nothing more a girl could want right? Nothing except a Rock Star Sophie's been in love with since she was in her teens and almost had a thing with…….
Sophie ends up on tour with Tuscq covering their comeback tour by the band’s request……
Will Sophie be content to go back to her day to day life or will she want to continue the jet set life?
How Distracted Did I Get?
Sophie’s Turn is a fun book that has you guessing from one moment to the next. I totally DID NOT want to put it down at all! Sophie is a sweet down to earth girl that most ladies out there can relate to. I loved the ups and downs and the moments when I was pulling out my hair! I totally avoided dishes and cooking for a day!

I'm not sure what I expected from Sophie's Turn, but I got so much more than I expected from the book. I received entertainment for an afternoon an evening. I was taken to a world that was different from my own. But I also watched a woman deal with her issues by first not dealing with them and then tackling them. I watched a romance bloom. I toured with a band around Europe and stayed at 5-star hotels. And I enjoyed every minute. Ms. Wells knows how to write a story that fully immerses you in the experience of her characters and makes it very enjoyable.
Sophie was a great character. She is funny, witty, has a great best friend, a good boyfriend and a good life, so why are memories of a night spent with a band ten years ago coming back to her? And then the happenstance meeting with one of those band members in an airport that lands the band back in her life. Is it what she wants and will it turn her life upside down? Well of course the book needs some tension and conflict to proceed and this has it. But it also has great friends, romance, heartfelt insight, tender moments with parents and so much more. Sophie has a whole range of emotions and she goes through all of them. But not on a whim. Sophie is not a silly girl that you just want to slap, at least I didn't. I felt that she had a reason for each thing she did and each time she went through a range of emotions she had good reason. I just loved her, she was so real. She battled decision-making. Nothing was easy for her. Every time she thought it was, something else came up and showed her something else. Rachel also made a great supporting character and best friend. Rachel just wants the best for Sophie and she wasn't one of those mean girl friends that you get in some books. She honestly had Sophie's best interests at heart through the whole book. I loved her and I'm interested to see more of her in the next book. Tim, I'm not sure I can say I liked him, but he serves his purpose. Dan, now Dan is the man that could make me want the rock star fantasy again even though I'm pretty sure I got over that as a teenager. Dan is hot, he's sweet and he's the whole package. No he's not perfect, but his good seems to make up for the bad. I also can't wait to see more of him as well.
Sophie's Turn was a very hard-to-put-down book. While the plot was character-driven and I have gone over the characters, the plot move along at a fast pace. The book is divided into sections and nothing is dwelt on too much to make any part of the book drag on. I pretty much flew through the whole thing dying to know what would happen next. Ms. Wells has the timing of the book down to the science to keep the reader engaged with the right amount of information, romance and action.
I loved Sophie's Turn and cannot wait for Sophie's Run. Ms Wells expertly weaves a story based around Sophie and decisions she needs to make in her life and the two men in it, without making Sophie into a completely wishy-washy annoying woman. The dialog is witty and fun, the places and scenes keep the story fresh and Sophie herself kept me interested in the book the whole time. I loved the characters, the plot, the book as a whole. I think Ms. Wells did an excellent job and think that if you enjoy chicklit, romance or a good general fiction book that Sophie's Turn is a great choice for your next book.

For every woman who taped rock star posters onto her bedroom wall as a teenager, this book is for you! Sophie's Turn is about the journey of a woman, fond of two extremely opposite men, and the choices she makes to discover love. Rock on, Nicky Wells!Was this review helpful?

I'm a fan of Chick Lit, and I am now a new fan of Author Nicky Wells! This was a well thought out and creative story, that definitely has many twists and turns, and really by the end, you will be surprised at what happens, as I was! There was a good amount of rockstars, including a very gorgeous one; a very nice, but that's just it, a very nice boyfriend/fiance; and a good amount of that best friend time to go over all your troubles because suddenly, life just gets too complicated! The main character, Sophie, was a great developed character, and through the past (flashbacks) and the present, you understand her, including her love of Rock music! As she lives a comfortable enough life with a devoted like boyfriend, someone from her past, comes back with a very serious intention to have her notice him, and it just about works, because Sophie falls for Dan...again. I thought many of the scenes were well written, including the ones with Dan, and there were scenes that you see Sophie, in a way grow into a new type of person, and with that, you will be lead into a sneak peak of what the Sequel will be like, and honestly, I cannot wait, as it just sounds incredible, and well, to get there, you must read Sophie's Turn, as this is one great and cozy read!Was this review helpful?

I found Sophie's Turn to be a smart and sassy read. It is a sweet romantic story about a girl who doesn't know her own mind and she is trying to define herself and her moral high road while opportunity knocks. Sophie is one of those people that just doesn't quite know how to avoid temptation. Is she bored? maybe. Does she just want to make sure, she's not settling? Yeah...who wouldn't want the best there is for the rest of their life. I related to her wholeheartedly. Sometimes we take three steps back to finally come one decided step forward. Yeah, I could relate to her quite well.
Ms Wells writing developed her characters well and showed the growth in Sophie throughout the pages and I was quite taken by the local lingo used throughout the book (British).
I enjoyed the book and the storyline and loved her characters. It's fun and it took me back a few decades(only 1 or 2....ok 4) . Remember Herman's Hermits? Oh Yeah! I could've been a groupie!

How many of us have dreamed of a romance with a rock star? Imagine this. You not only get to MEET your all time favorite band, but you embark on a whirlwind romance with its number one member! It's a dream come true for most of us. Sophie's Turn serves that up on so many levels. The dialogue is hilarious, the characters are endearing, and you really don't know how it's going to turn up. I truly enjoyed it.
If you're looking for a new read that will bring back your glory days and rekindle that tour magic, check out Sophie's Turn. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
