free book for free review This was a very good ending to Nicky Wells’ Rock Star trilogy.  Sophie Penhalligan-Jones finally had everything going right in her life when a tragedy occurred.  Her best friend, rock star Dan stepped up to help Sophie through her grief.  Sophie had been busy raising babies and hadn't worked in a few years, so Dan helped her get back on her feet in a new career.  Can Sophie and Dan's friendship survive maybe taking things to the next step this time, when it didn't survive past friendship in the past? This last installment in Nicky Wells Rock Star series did not disappoint.  It was sad to the point of bringing me to tears in parts, and exciting to the point of not being able to wait to see what happens next in others and loving and sweet all the way through.  I'm sad to see it end, but happy to be able to share Sophie's life.  I look forward to reading more from Nicky Wells.  -Donna Flint-

Sophie's Encore is a fantastic story written by the outstanding author Nicky Wells. It's been such an amazing journey going through this with Dan that has left me  get boring. Although I haven't read book one just yet, book two and three have been spectacular. I had never felt so many emotions put into one book. And that's what you get when reading these books, just wave of emotions hitting you. Book 2 really did it for me especially that scene where A certain someone has her moment and experiences love at first sight wow just wow. It blew me away reading that part it honestly felt so real. And in this installment Nicky never fails to impress. She does a fantastic job writing and putting everything into one book. Which shows how awesome she is.I loved everything about this book especially the falling for your other half part. It was beautiful in every way, the ending was fantastic. It really did blow me away halfway through it I could already see what was going to happen in a way but only cause it was my dream in a way. What can I say you fall in love in this book over and over again. I enjoyed reading it, it was beautiful. There is really no good way to explain it cause it leaves you at a loss of words. 5/5 stars

I fell madly in love with Sophie back in Sophie's Turn (read my review here). She made me laugh and kept me on a roller coaster ride with her rock star love affair. Her adventures in Sophie's Run kept me glued to the Kindle (read my review here), even if I didn't completely agree with her choices. I couldn't wait for this third and final installment to be done and was honored when Nicky contacted me with an advance review copy. It did not disappoint. Sophie has been through a lot in the past several years since we left her. She is now the proud mother of a little boy and girl. She is also a single mom, having lost Steve a few years ago. Dan has been by her side, the ever-doting best friend who is still obviously madly in love with her. She is still in love with him, but can't seem to admit it to herself and feels guilty for even thinking so. She has to learn to let go and to forgive herself and Steve, so that she can move on and start her life up again. It's not an easy task, but our fearless heroine is equal to the task when she sets her mind to it. You can already guess how this story is going to end. I was a little confused in the first few chapters, until I got all of the backstory about what had happened during the past few years, and then I could see the path unfold. The little tricks and turns along the way are what keep you foraging ahead to get to that wonderful ending. I love the choices that Sophie makes for her life and how she finds herself again. It's a total dream come true for her, and one that I wouldn't mind living in some bits and pieces. After all, don't we all have that rockstar fantasy? Reading through this final installment in the series gave me the hankering for going back and rereading the entire series. You can see how Dan and Sophie's relationship comes full circle and want to experience the entire saga all at once.  For those looking into this series, I recommend reading it in order, so that you don't miss out on a single morsel of this relationship. I am going to miss Sophie and Dan, but look forward to some future offerings that Nicky has planned for us readers!

Welcome back to Sophie's world! In the long awaited conclusion to the Rock Star Romance Trilogy, author Nicky Wells pulls out all the stops in Sophie's Encore, and rocks her readers' world with an emotional finale that leaves the reader completely spent and satisfied. In this thoroughly entertaining trilogy, the reader has gotten to know Sophie Jones, and has followed her adventures and trials and tribulations that she has encountered in her life. In Sophie's Turn, the reader watched as Sophie had to make a decision of which guy would win her heart when two men proposed to her. Then the reader caught up with Sophie in Sophie's Run, when Sophie had to deal with dramatic trials and tribulations that caused her life to fall apart, but our Sophie bounced back with a happy ending ... a wedding and a surprise announcement! Now in Sophie's Encore, the final installment of Sophie's life adventures, the reader catches up with Sophie a few years later. Sophie's life has changed so much that the reader is at first shocked at what her life has become, only to get swept back into Sophie's dramatic world that includes one mainstay, her complicated relationship with best friend, rock star Dan Hunter. This time when Sophie's life has gone awry and she is struggling to cope with it all, it's Dan who pulls our girl back up by her bootstraps, teaching her the behind the scenes music production technique of mixing music, while encouraging Sophie to move on with her life and a second chance at finding love. In this captivating finale, Sophie's world has come full circle, and author Nicky Wells holds nothing back making sure that the readers have enjoyed the wild emotional roller coaster ride that is Sophie and Dan's story! There is not enough words to say how much I loved author Nicky Wells' Rock Star Romance Trilogy. She captivated my interest and took me on an emotional journey as she weaved a sassy tale of romance and rock-n-roll with each book in the series, easily transporting me into Sophie and Dan's world. I loved the dramatic and complicated relationship that Sophie and Dan shared. As you read each book in the trilogy, the reader has a front row seat watching as their relationship grew, changed, and came full circle. With a great cast of characters who are realistic, engaging, with flaws and issues, and who are easy to relate to; witty dialogue and sassy interactions; richly descriptive and detailed settings; more passionate romance scenes; and a thoroughly entertaining storyline that author Nicky Wells has saved the best for last, Sophie's Encore gives the reader one hell of a finale! The Rock Star Romance Trilogy evokes the full gamut of emotions: love, loss, pain, hate, sadness, hope and happiness. Needless to say, author Nicky Wells takes her readers on a rocking roller coaster ride of a lifetime when they read this trilogy. While each book can be a stand alone read as the author provides flashbacks in each book, I would recommend that the reader reads the books in sequential order as this trilogy is a must read, you won't be disappointed! Job well done Nicky, Rock On!

My review: I have to start with saying that Rock Star Romance Trilogy is one of the most fun and positive contemporary romance series I have read. Don't get me wrong, there is enough drama and serious things taking place in the series, but at the end of the day, it leaves you with lots of hope and happy feelings. I loved that. Besides that, I think Nicky is an awesome writer, she takes you to a journey which is filled with all kinds of different feelings and that is what I, as a reader, adore: there is love, there is loss, there is hate, there is excitement, there is happiness, there is hope, there is sadness. You name it and she delivers it to you! Plot: Sophie's Encore starts few years later after the second book in the series - Sophie's Run - ends. That was the first surprise the author delivered. Sophie's life has changed a lot, she has become a mother and a widower and that was a very hard thing for me to swallow: How come? What has happened in the meantime? What happened to Dan? Then the author gives you flashbacks to the few years in Sophie's life between the books and you understand. I was shocked and had some difficulties with coping, but when continued reading, everything made sense and my confusion disappeared with each page I turned. Sophie is struggling, because the man she loved left her behind with two wonderful kids. She gives everything to her kids and has forgotten about herself and her happiness, she does not remember what is means to taking care of herself. She has lost herself in mourning and loss. The only strong and stable support in her life is Dan, her very own rock star and best friend who has stayed in Sophie's life. Dan is encouraging Sophie to move on with her life and brings her closer to his life by teaching her how to mix music. Step by step Sophie starts learning and not only of mixing music, but also what it means to live and love again. Just when everything starts to look brighter, a dramatic thing happens which makes Sophie realize what are the most important things and people in her life. Characters: I have not words enough to describe how I enjoyed the friendship and the relationship between Sophie and Dan. It was simply so real. Not a fluffy-pink-forever-happy love, but real love which contains everyday life as well. Even though I was shocked about what has happened in Sophie's life, I loved that the author gave me two mature main characters. Of course, one of them being a rock star, but still, the problems they faced were mature and real. Besides the main characters, the kids were absolutely adorable. I fell for them! I fell for them hard. Generally: Read it! That's all I am going to say. Read it and read the whole series and you will get the ride of your lifetime!
