Overview

When Jonah Riley’s father dies unexpectedly, he, his grieving mother and ailing sister are forced to move from the country to Austin, Texas. Jonah finds work at an auspicious night spot called Southern Nights, where he earns a few extra bucks as a bouncer-turned-musician.

There he meets fiery songstress Lacy Abernathy, who has no use for him or anyone else in the club when she’s not on stage. This is an entirely new experience for this ladies’ man. The opportunistic club owner latches onto this chemistry to fill her club, playing with their hearts and livelihoods for her own questionable motives.

Enter music executive Graham Baxter, who offers them both a way out…by competing for a recording contract they both need. Now if only they can fight the intense chemistry that keeps them locked in battle, when they're not locked in each other's arms, that is!

Author Ginger Voight returns her readers to the star-making world of rockers and romance with her SOUTHERN ROCKER series. It's all the angst and the passion you desire, with several familiar faces from the beloved GROUPIE universe along the way! SOUTHERN ROCKER BOY is written from Jonah's point of view, and book one of an exciting new trilogy expected to release in its entirety by the end of 2014.

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.

5 Stars From Sammy's Book Obsession! TITLE~ Southern Rocker Boy (Southern Rockers #1) AUTHOR~ Ginger Voight GENRE~ Contemporary Romance-Music PUBLISHED~ October 17th 2014 PURCHASED/COST~ ARC for Review MY RATING~ 5/5 MY THOUGHTS~ I was provided with an ARC for review. Let me first say that I only have a handful of truly favorite authors and out of that handful, there are 3 tied for #1. Ginger Voight is one of my 3 in the #1 spot and has been there, never wavering, since I first picked up the Groupie Trilogy. This author is nothing short of amazingly talented in her profession. It's remarkably clear that Ginger Voight pours her whole heart into her work and develops the most outstanding characters who stick with you long after the back covers are closed. Ginger's Groupie Trilogy, Fierce Trilogy, Fullerton Family Saga, as well as some standalones have made such profound impressions on me that I can't even describe here. She is an AMAZING writer. I can see the Southern Rockers series following in the footsteps of those that came before it. Southern Rocker Boy is a great start to what, no doubt, will be a fantastic trilogy. The story is very heartwarming and heartbreaking both at the same time. The characters are well developed and, for lack of a better term at the moment, I'm going to go with layered. I didn't want to put this book down and I can't wait for the next book in the series! Southern Rocker Chick -coming November 2014!!

3.5 Stars Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I’m a sucker for southern boys, and I’m a sucker for rock star books. Add to that I’ve been wanting to read Ginger Voight for a while (got a few sitting on my Kindle) and I just had to pick this one up.  SOUTHERN ROCKER BOY is a sweet story.  There’s just a little bit of angst to keep the drama alive.  But it was in all an enjoyable and quick read. Jonah is a classical good boy.  After his father’s death, he is doing the best he can to provide for his family, which includes his sick sister.  Money is tight, her treatments can get expensive, and he just wants to provide a better future for them.  You can call him the Reluctant Rock Star, and in a way that was my favorite part about his character. Jonah is a sweetheart.  Good ‘ol southern boy, with manners.  A gentleman.  He’s such a lovable character and you can’t help but fall for him from the very beginning.  And for the most part I stayed loving him through the end.  His love for his family and the woman he’s fallen for stays true through all obstacles and made him my favorite part of this book. I didn’t quite connect wit Lacy, though.  I think she was my main reason for not giving this book a higher rating.  She’s such a hard nut to crack that at times I just couldn’t get why he pursued her.  Towards the end, and with all the little glimpses, I started warming up to her.  I am looking forward to knowing more about her in the next book, that’s for sure. This book deals with the crazy life and the web of lies that show business can turn into.  That was fun to read and made for an entertaining story.  I sort of saw part of the big reveal coming from early on but another part I still managed to be surprised about. Towards the end, the story takes on a new turn which sets up the next books in the series. I don’t want to give anything away here, but I’m a sucker (yes, again!) for these types of things so I’ll be definitely reading the rest of the series!  Jonah and Lacy’s love story continues in SOUTHERN ROCKER CHICK, so this is not a one book story.  You will probably have to stay with it until the end of the trilogy. I was overall pleasantly surprised with my first impression of Ms. Voight’s writing.  It’s light and flows easily.  SOUTHERN ROCKER BOY just lends itself to be a one sitting book. *ARC provided by author
