The Rock Star in Seat 3A: A Novel by Jill Kargman...R&G!
It's Hazel's thirtieth birthday and she has everything she's ever wanted: a kickass job, a dream apartment in New York City, and the perfect boyfriend—who's just days away from proposing. Hazel thinks she's happy but isn't quite ready to settle down. So when her most far-fetched fantasy enters the realm of the possible, shouldn't she drop everything to see it through?
The morning after her birthday, Hazel boards a flight to L.A. only to get the surprise of her life. When she's bumped up to first class, extra legroom and free drinks are absolutely the last things on her mind when she catches sight of her seatmate: her all-time biggest celebrity crush, rock star Finn Schiller! Only the night before she'd confessed her infatuation with the gorgeous musician, and her boyfriend joked that she had a free pass if she ever met him. Hazel can't believe fate has actually thrown them together.
Even more unbelievable is that during the flight they genuinely connect. Finn likes her uncensored cursing and wicked sense of humor, and that she's unlike all of his groupies; Hazel likes his killer looks, ripped physique, and soulful music. But what started as a fantasy quickly becomes a real attraction, and after a dream date and taste of the rock-star life with Finn in L.A., Hazel is forced to examine the track her life is on. Indulging in a passionate affair with a rock star seems crazy—but could she ever forgive herself if she walked away from her wildest dream coming true? And is her wildest dream the stuff that happiness is made of?
A lively novel about a down-to-earth New York City girl who suddenly finds herself in a rock 'n' roll Cinderella fantasy, The Rock Star in Seat 3A is seasoned with Jill Kargman's signature wit and hilarious dialogue. This is a fairy-tale romance with a twist.
This book was the ultimate "what if" book. Can you even imagine if you were at least "almost" single and seated next to the rock god of your dreams?? I had a sort of love/hate relationship with Hazel. I was rooting for her/annoyed with her and desperate to see what she would do (or not do!) next). This is what kept me riveted until the very last page. This book was crass in some parts but it completely fit with the rock and roll vibe of the book so the language was actually fitting. I surprised myself when, in certain parts, I get tearful. I expected this to be a fun read (it WAS) but it was also a testament to relationships, letting go and moving on. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and highly recommend it for your summer reading list. Pick up your copy today on Amazon.....
