GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Beyond Beautiful by Jan Bornstein

Product Description

It's hard enough for us mere mortals. In the rarefied, high-wattage atmosphere of the music world, rock stars Jenna Bradford and Scott Tenny struggle to find love. Two beautiful people living their lives in a fish bowl, where every rumor of happiness or grief becomes grist for the gossip mill, where every public moment is chronicled in close-up by paparazzi armed with cameras. Two human beings grappling with realities present and past as they seek to establish common ground and trust where their love for one another can blossom and grow. Two individuals experiencing the truest love either has ever known. Two giants of the music industry, both industries in their own rights, trying to make a life for themselves that is Beyond Beautiful.

About the Author

JAN BORNSTEIN makes her literary debut with Beyond Beautiful, volume one of The Song Trilogy. A registered nurse, with degrees in psychology from Bridgewater State College and nursing from UMass Boston, she granted herself a hiatus from a busy career in-home nursing care management to indulge her inner writer. She makes her home south of Boston.

MY THOUGHTS:
LOVED IT

This romance series follows Jenna and Scott, both stars in their own right through a turbulent love affair with all of the trappings of life on the road.  You get to be back stage and view life on the road from these two who make music for a living.  I have to say that the series seems to accurately depict this lifestyle of two more mature rock stars.  Scott is over his hell-raising days and ready to settle down, while Jenna is not sure about what she wants until she ends up pregnant by a NFL player.  Discovering her maternal instincts and then losing the baby while reunited with Scott causes both of them to reevaluate their lifestyles.

Of course, there are the usual set back with unstable groupies, band politics and  the nonstop lifestyle, the two make an awesome pair.  The writing makes you want to read every word and there are enough little twists and turns to keep it interesting.  My favorite characters are actually two minor ones:  Linda, Jenna's mom and Joe, Scott's Dad.  Joe has some of the best wise cracking in the whole book.  They both provide stability to the crazy lifestyle that their children live.  My only complaint about their books is that the covers seem dated.
