Ever notice how some book titles are really popular? This is one: Backstage Pass. I don’t quite get why, but then, both Susan and I have stacks of them. When you have stacks, the novelty tends to wear off. So as a title, I’m not sure this makes me all ga-ga.

But it does alert me to Rock Fiction and … another first in a series! This series is called Let’s Make This Thing Happen, which might be the oddest series title I’ve come across yet. It sure does stand out!

Here’s the book description:

Emily is a successful woman in the tail end of a failing marriage. Ray is the reformed wild boy of rock, back on stage again for the first time in years. As a teenager Emily had Ray’s posters all over her bedroom wall so when she gets backstage tickets it’s as if her dreams have come true. Actually meeting him is an unexpected highlight of the evening, but that’s as far as it could ever go. They come from such different worlds: what could an international star ever see in a grounded, curvy woman like Emily?

A story of secret romance in the world of the super-rich, an international celebrity and his unlikely BBW love. Steamy and passionate and full of the twists and turns familiar to readers of PJ Adams’ work, including the bestsellers Winner Takes All and Black Widow.

Some familiar ground here, changed only by the fact that Emily ain’t a stick. That’s good. Not everyone is a stick. And everyone, no matter how stick-like or not, has body image issues. I swear it.

I’m more intrigued by the fact that she’s in the middle of this failing marriage, so why isn’t her rocker her rebound?
