Southern Rocker Boy by Ginger Voight Review & Giveaway

Author Ginger Voight returns her readers to the star-making world of rockers and romance with her SOUTHERN ROCKER series. It's all the angst and the passion you desire, with several familiar faces from the beloved GROUPIE universe along the way! SOUTHERN ROCKER BOY is written from Jonah's point of view, and book one of an exciting new trilogy expected to release in its entirety by the end of 2014.


When Jonah Riley’s father dies unexpectedly, he, his grieving mother and ailing sister are forced to move from the country to Austin, Texas. Jonah finds work at an auspicious night spot called Southern Nights, where he earns a few extra bucks as a bouncer-turned-musician.
There he meets fiery songstress Lacy Abernathy, who has no use for him or anyone else in the club when she’s not on stage. This is an entirely new experience for this ladies’ man. The opportunistic club owner latches onto this chemistry to fill her club, playing with their hearts and livelihoods for her own questionable motives.
Enter music executive Graham Baxter, who offers them both a way out…by competing for a recording contract they both need. Now if only they can fight the intense chemistry that keeps them locked in battle, when they're not locked in each other's arms, that is!

Jonah is not really happy with his life on the farm but his family needs him and he refuses to let them down. When his father suddenly dies trying to fix the roof of their home, the only way that Jonah and his mother will be able to pay the bills for his sick sister is to sell the farm and move into Austin to get real jobs at a factory. Factory work is more boring than the farm but Jonah doesn't have a choice, that is until he walks into Southern Nights. He is hired as a bouncer after making sure the hot rocker chick he couldn't take his eyes off of gets out of the club alright.
Music has been Lacy's life for forever. But she wants to do it her way. She won't compromise herself just to make it. She's been burned by both the club owner and the last man in her life and tries to deny her growing attraction to Jonah. 

Jonah is drawn onto the stage when the guitarist for the house band breaks his hand. Lacy is thrown together with Jonah more and more with them both in the band and the two finally give into their feelings. When the club owner pushes Jonah to the forefront of the band and sets him up with a record producer Lacy thinks history is repeating itself and pulls away from Jonah. 

This is a great start for a new series from the awesome Ginger Voight. Jonah is a sweetheart and I love that we get his point of view first. Lacy is a little hard to like in the beginning but she grows on you. If we had gotten her POV first I think I might have put the book down but now I'm looking forward to reading it in book 2. I love that we get to revisit with Graham and Giovanni and look forward to more of them in book three. 

You will not be disappointed in reading this new rocker series, give it a one-click. 

#2 - SOUTHERN ROCKER CHICK expected Nov. 21.
#3 - SOUTHERN ROCKER DUET expected Dec. 12.
Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.
Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.
Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY, THE FULLERTON FAMILY SAGA, THE LEFTOVER CLUB and PICTURE POSTCARDS.
Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.
