Sophie's Run by Nicky Wells/ a RABT VBTour

Contemporary Romance
Title: Sophie's Run
2nd Book in the Rockstar Romance Trilogy
Author: Nicky Wells


Her famous star remains her rock while life takes her on a little detour…
Who says that the road towards true love is straight and even?  Sophie is certainly discovering that it is anything but.
 So she has finally found the man of her dreams!  Well… she knows who he is, even though she hasn’t actually quite met him yet.  But she misses her opportunity, and then her life goes crazy.  Rock star and ex-fianc√©, Dan, keeps getting in the way of her new romance—even if he is just trying to be helpful.  A fire, an impromptu mini-trip with Dan, and a dreaded wedding later, Sophie is still struggling to meet the love of her life.  Then, just as she is getting it together with her perfect man, best friend Rachel commits an act of unspeakable betrayal.
 Sophie has had enough.  Confused and distraught, she decides that it is time for radical change.  Surprising herself and shocking her friends, she embarks on a secret journey eventually gets her life back on track.

My Review:

This was the second in the Rockstar Romance Trilogy and what a fun read it was!  It felt good to reconnect with Sophie Penhalligan and her friends, Rachel and Dan, get to know her thunder and lighning man, Steve, and meet her new friends from the island!

The storyline was well thought out and took us to places I hadn't expected to go....as in the betrayal.   I wasn't expecting that and the weekend excursion that went so wrong?    Wasn't expecting that either!  But it all made for a cohesive plot and a story worth the tell!    I love when characters in a story are humanly flawed and yet forgivable.    Ms Wells definitely provides the reader with well defined characters which reflect human frailties and realities.

And once again, I find myself wishing my life away.   I will be anxious to read the third in the trilogy, Sophie's Encore come September 2013.    Are you going to join me?    Thanks Nicky for such an excellent follow up!
