Goodreads:  Shan is young, beautiful, talented, and addicted to heroin in Rock Angel, a novel that follows her meteoric rise to guitar goddess stardom in the 90’s. She is discovered in New York by a handsome, arrogant musical genius named Quinn, and sparks fly between them when he hires her as lead guitarist of his band. Although Quinn is accustomed to bedding a different groupie every night, he can’t ignore his deepening feelings for his new band mate. From gritty Greenwich Village clubs to L.A.’s Troubadour; gigging and touring the country to the cover of Rolling Stone, Rock Angel is infused with the passionate music and intense sexual chemistry of Shan and Quinn. Shan must work out her personal demons and learn to trust Quinn enough to love him, but still remain true to the music that has always been her salvation. A hot, hard-driving story set in an intoxicating world of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, Rock Angel is the first novel by author, Jeanne Bogino.

Ope’s Opinion:  I liked all the inside view of the music industry.  I also liked the realistic way the author dealt with addiction.  It was written in a way that made you really root for Shan to beat and stay away from the drugs.  In the music business it doesn’t seem like it would be easy to stay strong.  I know sex, drugs and rock and roll are usually expected to be together, but there was too much description of the sex scenes.  

I love the cover of this book.  I think I would like to frame it!  I really like it when the cover represents the book, but doesn’t give anything away.

The story was  a little long and drawn out for me – which I know  is realistic with addiction, but hard to read some times.

I hear there is another book coming out called Angel on High.  I will be interested to see where she takes the story.

Rating:  Three Chairs – I like the book so much I know several friends to share it with.
