Crimson and Clover





Crimson and Clover
4 of 5 stars false 





 Under Katie Scott’s flower child exterior beats the heart of June Cleaver. Though she digs her bellbottoms and love beads, she longs for the idyllic family life she was denied as a child.
Laughed out of San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury after the Summer of Love for believing rock ’n roll and white picket fences can coexist she decides to try her luck in the bohemian neighborhood of Ladbroke Grove in London.
When she discovers her new friend Adam is starting a band with Jay Carey, she’s ecstatic. She’d admired the British guitar god from afar for years, and when she and Jay finally meet the attraction between them is instantaneous.
But life with a rock ’n roll star doesn’t lend itself well to white picket fences. And when Katie tells Jay the secret she’s carried for two years it may end the dream before it begins.

Review

****This book was part of a blog tour, I received a copy for my honest review****
From the very first page I was immediately drawn into this story.Julie Page Morgan has done a wonderful job setting the stage for this book and taking us back to a time of free love and rock n' roll. The characters were very well defined. I loved Katie and and Jay and their whole relationship. They had me rooting for them throughout all there dramas. It doesn't take a genius to imagine that falling in love with a rock star is going to be a bumpy ride and it really was, but gosh these guys had me dreaming of a happy ending. I really wanted Katie to get her family and her white picket fence.
There has been a flood of rock n'roll star romance books in the market nowadays and let's just say this takes that genre back to it's roots and it is no less enjoyable. You will fall in love with a myriad of characters and the world that has been built by Juli Page Morgan makes you feel like you were there!
I really enjoyed this whole book, the era, the clothes the music.. I feel like raiding my mums old records. Very well written, very well paced. I wasn't once bored and I didn't skip a page. I will definitely be looking for more books from this author, for her first book Crimson and Clover, is so well written it was like stepping back in time. I loved it, it totally rocked :)
