Does this sound familiar to anyone else? I swear, I have read some Rock Fiction where the heroine runs a snarky blog site. I have! (If you have, too, you know where the comments are.)

Emily Watts just wants a weekend break from the workaholic hours she’s taken on to keep her business — a popular fashion-snark web site — up and running. What she gets is overnight celebrity and a career-killing media scandal.

While taking time out to attend a concert in support of friend Jesse Cinder, a struggling musician, Emily meets Cory Sampson, the lead singer of a chart-topping rock band. When she agrees to a date with Cory, making entertainment headlines is the last thing she expects. Even so, it’s a minor surprise by comparison to her discovery that in the music world, media notoriety trumps all. Tabloid allegations erupt when Cory and fame-hungry Jesse use Emily for personal gain, and her tarnished image spells disaster — personally and professionally. To save the web site and writing career she’s made her life and dream, Emily must go from being a pawn in the Hollywood headline game to becoming the media mastermind.

Previously published as J.F. Kristin.

I think what makes this rise above its own cliches is that it seems to focus less on the cliches and more on the idea of the scandal and how to work the media and the whole game. Maybe I’m wrong. I don’t know, but honestly, that’s what I’d like to see this book be about. It doesn’t even seem to be a romance, despite the fact that it starts off with a date. And that, too, helps it rise above the fact that it’s the chart-topping singer who singles Emily out.

If only wishes could be real things. And if only I could get my hands on a copy of the book and see for myself!
