 For gals who love bad boys and musicians, Jennifer Chance brings ROCK IT,

the first novel in Rule Breakers, a sizzling New Adult series published by Random House’s LoveSwept imprint.

Want to learn more about ROCK IT? Be sure to check out this exclusive interview with Jennifer Chance!

Synopsis:

Jennifer Chance unleashes her hot new series with the tale of a smoldering rocker and the fangirl who catches his eye—and finds herself living out her wildest dreams.

Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.

Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.

 

My Review:

Rock It is the first book in author Jennifer Chance’s Rule Breakers Series and kicks it off with an enjoyable start.

Lacey Dawes’ career as a PA in a major talent agency has really been amazing thus far.  She’s doing everything she could have dreamed of and when the chance to work with major star Dante Falcone is dropped in her lap she can hardly believe it.  I mean he’s been her crush for as long as she can remember.  She knows everything about him from way back when he was a little known teen idol to now…one of the most sought after stars in music.  Sure, she’s beyond thrilled to be working with him but if she’s being honest, she’s pretty terrified too.  But she knows she will be able to keep things on the most professional of levels and will be able to bury her screaming-fan-girl-ish crush, right?  Turns out that is way easier said than done when she starts working with Dante.  How is it possible he could be even more amazing in person?  Oh, she was in so much trouble.

Dante Falcone is thankful every day for his fame and success.  He has everything he’s dreamed of and is always working at getting to the next level in his career.  But there’s always been something missing.  He can’t quite figure out was it is, exactly, until he meets Lacey.  There is something about her that draws him in.  It’s almost like he’s met her before.  But surely that can’t be true.  He would remember someone as beautiful and refreshing as she is.  Still, he can’t get her out of his mind.  What better way to keep her around than to insist that she’s the one he wants to head up his latest tour and projects with his new talent agency?  Nothing has ever been out of reach when he sets his sights on it, and Lacey is no exception.

I’m always a sucker for a Rock God meets fresh-faced girl story and Rock It totally delivered.  Dante is the ultimate rocker with a soft side and big heart and the desire to find love and Lacey totally fits that bill.  One of the things I liked best about Lacey was her very real reactions when she’s around Dante.  Her plan of being professional and composed completely fly out the window and more often than not she ends up fumbling over her words and actions because, let’s face it, wouldn’t you if you had to work with your ultimate celeb crush?  I know I would!  It’s those reactions that made her a very endearing character and one I really enjoyed reading.  And the chemistry between Dante and Lacey is totally scrumptious!

I am looking forward to more in this series and to see where Jennifer takes us!

About Jennifer Chance

JenniferChanceI come by romance honestly, having spent several years writing adult romance and entering romance contests through Romance Writers of America–including finaling twice in the prestigious Golden Heart contest and winning once. But despite these and other contest wins, my first published novel came not in adult romance, but as a writer of YA historical fiction (you can read all about my Elizabethan spy girls stories, the Maids of Honor, here.)

Still, despite my love of Elizabethan spies, I could never quite give up those super Alpha contemporary romance heroes. So, in the summer of 2013, I decided to see if perhaps I might still have a romance or two up my sleeve.

I wrote a tale about a girl whose biggest high-school and college crush–a rock star–suddenly becomes her biggest client, only now she has to be professional and not betray the fact that she’s completely in love with the guy. It was a fun, sexy, romantic fantasy, and I suggested the idea to my agent… who asked what other ideas I had in addition to this story. Shortly after, the Rule Breakers series was born.

To separate these books from my historical work, I adopted the name Jennifer Chance. I am now pursuing my dreams (pretty much round the clock as it turns out) and am THRILLED to be able to have four e-books coming out in 2014 and early 2015, all with Random House LoveSwept’s New Adult romance line.

As to what will happen from here, who knows? But as long as there is a story to be written and an HEA to be had, I’ll be the one over in the corner, tapping away on my keyboard.
