About the Author
EDITOR: In 2014, I eased into editing. A critique group made its way onto my priority list. If a writer buddy needed a beta read, I jumped at the chance to apply a critical eye as well as positive reinforcement to the task. With every project I worked on, whether writing or offering constructive criticism, I aimed to improve my craft as I helped my fellow author. Becoming an editor wasn't my goal, but as I learned more about the mechanics of writing, a natural evolution occurred. My editing skills grew at a much more rapid pace than my writing skills did. Since 2014, I've edited countless anthologies, novels, and independent short works from various authors. I wish I had counted. That number would be pretty handy right about now. My primary focus is on speculative fiction, but I'm also interested in women's fiction and romance. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The story is well written, with a complicated but clear storyline, which follows the main character over multiple periods in her life, enabling the reader to relate to her more deeply. The story also has a few unseen plot twists, which make it even more interesting.
Overall, a very interesting, enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more of her work.
My fear was unwarranted. There is something just so engaging about Erin, the narrator and protagonist. Despite the bad choices she keeps making, there is something indomitable about her. She moves her obsession from one rock star to another, with each one convinced that she will make a special connection with them - that sounds sad, depressing even, but it's not. Rowen has crafted a character that is three-dimensional and consistent - you really feel like you know Erin. Agents are always looking for a writer with Voice - well, this author has it.
And a great ending. That might have been the best part. In fact, it was a book where the more I read of it, the more I liked it.
I wish the book had been longer - I was really sorry to see it go.
