Synopsis: Marlene Parker got her fairy tale ending. Luke Anderson, her one and only love and their darling little girl are finally a family again. However, nobody said marrying a rockstar is easy. The media is out for blood, groupies are singing on Marlene’s front lawn and people are deeming her the new Yoko Ono. If that wasn’t enough, there is a wedding to plan and pies to bake. An expert in chaos, Marlene doesn’t get easily stressed. That is, until an unexpected pregnancy digs up old insecurities, potentially threatening the life she has worked so hard to gain.
Will Marlene and Luke vow to cherish and to hold forever?
Or was their story never meant to be?
What I Thought:
I enjoyed this followup novella to Love of a Rockstar, perhaps even more than I did the book. It was great to see how Marlene and Luke were doing after reuniting. Luke was no longer a rock star by his own choosing and has decided to change career paths to spend more time with Marlene and their precocious daughter Nil. Marlene is planning their wedding and helping with the renovations.
I really liked the changes in both Marlene and Luke. They're really trying to let go of the past and move forward. But it seems like their pasts won't let them go. Then something comes to light that makes dealing with renovations and planning a wedding seem like a breeze. It makes their harder and darker days seem more like the present than it is. I liked how they both dealt with it once it became clear they way they'd reacted had hurt the other's feelings.
The story is a quick read. Things progress quickly. Nil was precious and I adored seeing Marlene's grandmother again. I also liked seeing Matthew and Camille. The two certainly have chemistry and if the excerpt from the upcoming book is to be believed, they have history as well. I look forward to reading it.
