Rock Fiction Coveting: Sophie’s Turn by Nicky Wells

Not only is Rock Fiction super hot right now, it seems Rock Fiction series are hot. When they’re good, when they can be good through all three (or however many, but I’ve noticed that three is the magic number), this almost better than good sex. Almost.

Today we’ve got the first in the Rock Star Romance series, Sophie’s Turn. Here’s the description:

Slapper? Slut? Adulteress? Sophie Penhalligan’s life and moral universe is turned upside down when rock star Dan proposes to her in full knowledge that she is already engaged. She has always loved Dan, in a remote-crush kind of way. She thinks she loves her fiancé, Tim. What is she to do?

It’s all happening because her past has come to tempt her. Nine years ago, she met her teenage idol and rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, up close and personal. Well, almost!

Now Dan has crash-landed back in her life just as Sophie is happily embroiled in a relationship with Tim, her boyfriend of two years. Until recently, she was confident Tim would eventually propose. But while his persistent inaction is beginning to cast a cloud over their relationship, Dan’s sudden reappearance poses a whole new dilemma.

Having accompanied Dan’s band to Paris, Sophie suddenly finds herself engaged to Dan while her erstwhile fiancé Tim is… well, doing whatever it is Tim does back in London. Torn between the dream-come-true and the sensible-thing-to-do, Sophie concludes her inadvertent journey of self-discovery with an ending that surprises herself, and everyone around her.

Sophie’s Turn is a glamorous contemporary fairy tale that will make chick-lit and romance lovers laugh, cry and rock along every step of the way.

A new twist on a familiar trope! And it sounds like this is more about Sophie’s choice (har) than real Rock Fiction, but who knows? Maybe Dan’s got the charisma to lift this above a chick lit sorta read and bring the music.

Looking at the series, it’s really a sort of Sex in the City with a rocker as Mr. Whatever-his-name-was. Sophie loves Dan. Or does she? Will she come back to him? Why’s he waiting so patiently?

Lots of questions, and I’d love to see the answers. But the one that won’t be in the books is this one: Rockers today have super slick names. Devin. Magnum. But Dan?

Well, there’s Dan Spitz and Dan Lilker and Daniel Adair, and more, so it’s not unheard of. It’s just…

Bucking the trend. Again.

I may like this Nicky Wells. Would love it if she’d stop in for a guest post about why she named her man Dan.

  1. Nicky Wells says:

    Hello! You called? Ta-da: Here I am!

    It’s very nice to meet you, and thank you for featuring ‘Sophie’s Turn’ as a coveted read. I think you’d really enjoy it, but hey, don’t take my word for it. I’m obviously biased!

    I’ll gladly stop by with a guest post on why Dan is called Dan. When do you want me, and how long have I got, LOL? And is there anything else you’d like to know?

    BTW, I love to chat too. Hey, Jett–we share a dream of being a rock singer in a different life. Who knows, one day, right? And Susan, I agree: the music industry totally gets under your skin. That’s why I write! Keep on rocking and writing, we have that in common.

    Rock on, and I hope to visit you soon. Cheerio,

  2. […] awhile back, Jett wondered why, in an age where authors give their rockers pretty charismatic names, Nicky Wells …. Lucky us — Nicky saw Jett’s post and dropped Susan a line, offering to explain. And […]
