From the award-winning author of TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT comes the final story in her red-hot Rock Star Romance series, about a loner rocker finding his perfect duet.
When Cooper Hood left Snowberry, Montana ten years ago, he swore he'd never go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band's national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom's got a whopper of a secret to reveal.
Daisy Charbonneau's in trouble. The talent she hired for her resort's annual Huckleberry Festival just bailed on her, and she's desperate to find a replacement act. Luck turns her way when she discovers her high school crush is back in town--and he happens to be a rock star.
As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more, but who falls in love in two weeks?
Especially when Cooper's never coming back to town, and Daisy's never going to leave it.

Loved it More Than a Feeling portrays someone who goes from being a pauper to a famous rock star. Cooper's childhood is far from being normal. His determination drove him to make something of himself by leaving his hometown, never to return. He is now the lead guitarist of a prominent band. Daisy is working in partnership with some of the locals to raise funds for a resort which would benefit the community. The preparations are going well until one of the participants lets her down. Despite his vow to never return to his hometown, Cooper returns after a phone call for some urgent news that her mother is about to disclose. He is on break from a tour and intends to stay for just a couple of days. He bumps into Daisy who was in his music class and now that they both have a problem, they start to work together. This will be beneficial to both of them. Cooper has been crushing on Daisy for as long as he can remember but his way of life at the time made her off limits. To his surprise, he discovers that she has been carrying the same crush. There has always been this connection between them but a long term relationship won't work as neither of them will leave their current situation. When Cooper's mother gives him the news, he is surprised and has so many mix feelings that he is at a loss. Daisy proves to be a tower of strength. She has her own problems but makes time to help everyone in need. During their time together, their feelings get stronger but can they indulge as they both know that it can only last for so long? This novel is very deep. There is one surprise after another. The love and heartaches are palpable. Cooper is a loving and lovable character, proving that the past can be overcome. Daisy is strong and determined. She has a knack of putting things in perspective for the benefit of others. Family values are very much in the fore front. It's an emotive love story which I will quite happily read again. I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
This was all just so AMAZING and I feel blown away!!! Honestly, I can't say enough good things. Emotion, tension, drama, and off the charts chemistry and heat. I felt like my emotions were going to spill over while I was reading and by the end, my heart was bursting. Cooper and Daisy's story was so wonderful and I think it just might be my favorite in the series. That's saying a lot too because I LOVE this series. Cooper and Daisy were fantastic characters. I thoroughly enjoyed watching them reconnect and learning about their histories. Cooper is so sweet, kind, and caring and so not what people perceive him to be. Daisy was strong and feisty, I loved her spunk. Together they had such amazing interactions. I loved their playfulness and that building heat between the two. They're chemistry sizzled! There are ups and downs, tension an heat, and it was great watching them work through their struggles as they figured everything out. Everything about this story was pretty perfect for me. The storyline and writing were fantastic. There were so many great details and moments that just filled me up. I was stressed out, I was grinning, I was worried, I was rooting for them, I was teary eyed, my emotions pretty much ran the gamut while reading this. There was excellent character development as well and I enjoyed the build as everything played out. I adore the fact that it was dual POV and I really got to know both of them and feel what they were feeling. Cooper has always seemed like such a mystery so I love how the author set this story up slightly different from the others in a different location, it seemed to fit perfectly. I love the Blue Fire band and Cooper’s band mates, they’re a great cast of characters. I loved the updates on the guys and where everyone is now with their lives. It makes me want to go back and reread their stories. If you have not read Erika Kelly before, I highly recommend her. This series is phenomenal! This is the last one and I'm going to miss all the characters but it went out with a bang. 5 I’m-feeling-so-much-stars! Complimentary copy received for honest review.
Loved Cooper & Daisy-hated to see the series end.
4.25 stars--MORE THAN A FEELING is the fourth and final installment in Erika Kelly’s contemporary, adult ROCK STAR ROMANCE series focusing on the members of the rock band Blue Fire. This is rock star Cooper Hood, and singer/coordinator Daisy Charbonneau’s story line. MORE THAN A FEELING can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Daisy and Cooper) MORE THAN A FEELING is a second chance romance between rock star Cooper Hood, and Daisy Charbonneau. Ten years earlier Cooper Hood left his hometown of Snowberry, Montana and never looked back but to think about the girl he left behind. A childhood rocked by a drug addicted mother, never knowing the true identity of his father, Cooper had always felt abandoned, alone and one step behind the rest of his peers except for the life-long friendship between himself and Daisy Charbonneau. An urgent message from his mother brings Cooper Hood back to Snowberry, Montana and into the path of the woman that has always called to his heart. Enter Daisy Charbonneau, a woman on a mission seeking musicians for the town’s annual Huckleberry Festival when their biggest draw pulls out but a woman who loses her heart to a man who’s only in town for a couple of days. What ensues is the rekindling friendship and romance between Daisy and Cooper, and the fall out when issues of trust keep Daisy and Cooper from going after the one that they love. Daisy and Cooper both have issues of trust. Cooper never knew who was his father, and Daisy’s father was in and out of her life for as long as she could remember. Cooper’s return to Snowberry brings too many bad memories, and it takes everything within him to stay behind to help the woman that he loves. Daisy refuses to acknowledge her love for a man who will never be ready to settle down thus forcing Daisy to push Cooper out of her life when he offers her so much more. The $ex scenes are intimate and provocative without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to a cast of great secondary characters including Daisy’s mother Hannah Charbonneau, Snowberry’s mayor Stuart Goff, the Blackstock family including Hunter and Crystal, Remi, Ethan and Nash, Cooper’s mother Ronnie Hood, and several townsfolk as well as the cameo appearances of the members of Blue Fire. The world building focuses on betrayal and trust; Daisy’s need to rebuild the town in which she grew up; Cooper facing the family he knew nothing about, and his love for a woman who isn’t ready for life on the road. MORE THAN A FEELING focuses on family and love; betrayal, lies and the truth; finding love and never letting go. The premise is heartbreaking and emotional; the characters are animated and colorful; the romance struggles with a lack of communication, preconceived notions, and the fall out of one woman’s need to remain in the small town in which she grew up.
Review: MORE THAN A FEELING (Rock Star Romance #4) by Erika Kelly Publication Date: April 4, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated 5 Stars Cooper! Yay! I was so excited to read Cooper's story and it was everything I wanted it to be with all the feels and smoking hot romance. I've been obsessed with Erika Kelly's rock stars since I picked up the her first book. The series features beautiful love stories with hot rock stars. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone but I recommend starting at the beginning because each book features a different band member and Cooper has been in the previous books. Cooper's book, MORE THAN A FEELING, is the fourth and final book in the series and I'm really going to miss the guys. This was a great conclusion though and I loved Cooper and Daisy together! I enjoy second chance romances and this was a great one about returning home and reconnecting with a high school crush. I highly recommend the entire Rock Star Romance series. It's one of my favorite series and Erika Kelly is on my must read author list because she always delivers a great romance book that leaves me smiling and satisfied. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next. Whatever she decides to write, I'll be reading. *Review copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was my first read in the Rock Star Romance series. I didn’t find any issue following the storyline. The book works as a stand alone. More Than A Feeling is the poignant story of two people who've gone their separate ways but have a new chance at love. It’s a twist on a second chance (really first chance) romance of two people who had the hots for each other in high school but never made it happen. Now years later our hero, Cooper Hood, has survived a hellacious childhood as the son of an addict mother and an absent father through determination. He made it to become a famous alt rock star who must return to his hometown for mysterious info about his father from his dodgy mother and to organize building his mother a new home. Our heroine also comes from a rough childhood but not from an abusive standpoint, more from an absentee father. She’s the epitome of cute or maybe adorable is a better word. Yet, she’s a strong Montana woman. The book has a slow start, but it gives us time to get to know the characters. The author really sparkles with world building and description of emotion as we get to know these characters. We enjoy the dance of two people who want each other but think they shouldn’t (more from him than her). If you’re looking for a sweet romantic drama with a satisfying HEA, then this is your read.
Loved Cooper and Daisy. Perfect end to the series although I hate for it to end.
