Her rock star is waiting in the wings, but will he get a second chance?
It’s all change for Sophie Jones—only this time, there is more at stake than just her happiness.
Rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, has been her patient and caring friend through the highs and lows since her wedding day, but now he figures it is time for her to start over. By stealth, the rock singer draws Sophie into the behind-the-scenes work for his band’s latest album. Through the days and weeks spent together at the mixing desk, Sophie discovers whole new horizons for her life, yet before she can even begin to explore them, she faces the very real threat of losing her rock star for good.
Join Sophie and Dan in Sophie’s Encore to find out how their journey will end…
This series has had me fan girling from page one! I just can not get enough. Saying that… this review is very bitter sweet. Knowing that this is the last in this fabulous, wonderful series is so terrible!! I don’t want Sophie’s story to end! I have to admit, though, as I read as slowly as I possibly could, making sure every single word was absorbed, I wound up flying through it and loved every minute!
If you have yet to read books one and two, you may want to BUT Nicky Wells is a genius and she reminds us of what happened in the first two books, not extraordinarily so, so there will be things you will miss if you just jump right in, BUT you are able to. Although, I’d recommend getting the full story before venturing into book three, this story is just SO worth it!!
At the front of the book it says “Her rock star is waiting in the wings but will he get a second chance?” I was mystified! What?!! Nicky Wells! What have you done? After pacing the living room, I knew I had to dive in and find out… I was shocked, mesmerized, amazed… It is bittersweet but Sophie’s Encore was every bit as good as the first two in this series, if not BETTER! My only wish is that we didn’t have to say goodbye to Sophie!
Multiple times I found myself sniffling and wondering what was going to happen. So much has happened in this series and my heart strings are just tugging for Sophie, for both the good and the bad. And the struggles that Dan and Sophie have to maintain an adult relationship while with her two children! So of course this book is about the push and pull that these two have for each other. The old familiar feelings but so much has happened between them, what’s a girl to do right?!
Rock star extraordinaire, lead singer of mega rock band Tuscq, erstwhile boyfriend and now godfather to my children.
And then you have the totally fabulous Rachel. I love everyone in this book, but this gal just freaking rocks. She’s that friend that tells you what you don’t really want to hear, but she knows you NEED to hear it. Yeah, that annoying friend that you have to just love. I was so happy to see her back in this story. But what would a story about Sophie be without Rachel!?
I rolled my eyes. Why did she keep bringing this up? “He does not. He totally doesn’t. We’re only working together.”
“Yada, yada, yada.” Rachel pretended to be bored. “I think he has the hots for you, and I am never wrong.”
If you have yet to read this and enjoy contemporary romance, do yourself a favor and pick these three up! You will NOT be disappointed. Oh, and drink some coffee or bubbly while you’re reading!
