Rock Star Romance Day 2 featuring...

Veronica Moreau 

One day I was surfing Facebook and came across Veronica's Facebook page where she had posted a picture of her soon to be released, at that time, Lick and A Promise~ Diary of A Rock Star Groupie!! I was BEYOND excited cause I found another ROCK STAR ROMANCE! Yep, it doesn't take much to get me going and believe me I was ALL over it! I was doing this......................................................

Now I have to tell you Lick and A Promise~ Diary of A Rock Star Groupie is NOT your typical ROCK STAR ROMANCE! Oh no, this one is a real life, gritty look into what happens behind the scenes and may not be everyone's cup of tea! It's what I like and if you like lots of "hot, steamy sex" then this one is for you!  I love the cover and the synopsis will give you a little hint of what's to come....................................................................................................................

For Mature Audiences Only!

During the Classic Rock era, Poppy Bishop was a teenage runaway. At 18, she was in bed with the lead guitarist of one the biggest bands in rock history. She went on to become Poppy Bleu, a “famous” groupie who bedded rock stars, their wives (and girlfriends) and became a junkie by the time she was 21. However, she never forgot her first rock star…and he never forgot her.

For over 20 years, Poppy Bleu was known in the rock and roll world as the best backstage lay and liked, loved and hated by some of the world’s biggest rock stars. Her story is one of sex, drugs, and rock and roll and how she went from groupie to junkie to author and became the love of a lead guitarist’s life who saved her from a life of ruin.

LICK AND A PROMISE is Book One in the Rock Star Series

Currently this is only out in e-copy but a Paperback version is going to be released soon! Want to know what I thought about it? Well, here's my review........................

I was given an advanced read copy of Lick and a Promise: Diary of a Rock Star Groupie by the author in exhange for an hones review! I have this severe addiction or you can even call it an obsession with Rock Star Romance's and when I received this in my in-box I was............ The book chronicle's 20 years of Poppy Bleu's life and her fascination with anything/everything to do with Rock Stars! She had a goal to meet "her ROCK STAR" and she wasn't going to let anything or anyone stand in her way! Poppy left home at a very young age with her BFF they were going to hit the road and meet some Rock Stars! Well her friend bailed on her early on and the journey had JUST began! Poppy didn't have a hard time meeting up with a "new" group of friends once her friend left her and when she meets this group and "hooks-up" well let's just say there was a lot of this............................................. But it was also Poppy's introduction to drugs and when the party is going on and it's available she took part. Heck some things she took part in had me................................................... But I think that was the "MOM" in me and I had to put that aside so I can experience the read! Does Poppy find "her Rock Star" the one she wants at all costs? Well, she does and when she ends up in the lead guitarist's bed things are pretty.................................... This book was fantastic.........it felt like I was given an insiders view of what REALLY transpire behind the scenes when the curtain falls and the parties begin but WAIT Poppy Bleu grabbed me instantly and transported me into a world I could only imagine!!! A world of....... Poppy Bleu is rumored to be "THE GROUPIE" the ultimate experience!!! She is know throughout the Rock Star Community for her well, ahhhhmm, let's say techniques! She's sure of herself and knows what she wants! Funny how dreams at a young age and our view of the world can change! Poppy has a resilence that many do not have! Her drive, determination and focus is on ONE thing, to meet her Rock Star, our as she refers to him "My Rock Star!" This book is real! It's gritty and not all sunshine and happiness! It's a world of sex, drugs, alcohol and rock'n'roll! The drug addiction laid out in front of you and Poppy was a train wreck waiting for the BIG EVENT to bring her to rock bottom! When that happened I was.......... So buckle your seatbelts and prepare to be taken on the RIDE of your life folks!This book has explicit sex and it's no hold barred~ don't go looking for your normal girl meets boy romance here cause that's not what this one is about! I think Lick and a Promise is an FANFREAKINGTASTIC read! I loved the "real" life aspects shown in the book! The drug addiction, married rock stars, twosomes, threesomes ~ well you get the picture!!! So take a journey with Poppy as she re-counts her youth and see if she ends up with her "Rock Star" and while on that journey see if you recognize some of the industries biggest "stars" during that era! I highly recommend you READ this book NOW!!! When I finished the book in my typical fashion I totally did this................................ So if you want to read something out of the norm then you just found the book for you! This definitely is a 5 star read and a behind the scenes experience that I've never read in another book to date!!!!!!!!
Veronica was kind enough to answer a few questions for me! I loved the interview as well as finding out we muscially have some things in common! She is working on a follow-up book so be sure to keep your eye's peeled for the second book in her Rock Star Series!!! Now let's learn a little more about Veronica..................................................................................................................

~ What inspired you to write your first book? Well, my first book actually came out in 2004 and is a vampire novel called PUNCTURE. I was living with a man who did something he shouldn't have done and I thought, do I kill him or do I write a book about it. I don't look good in orange jumpsuits so, I booted him out the door and wrote a book! The characters are based on us. Veronica is modeled after me and Victor is totally him. Every woman knows a man like Victor...

~ Where did you come up with the idea for Lick and A Promise - Diary of a Rock Star?It is actually based on an event that happened to me when I was 17 years old with a famous rock star! It's part fiction, part non-fiction and just a touch of fantasy. An erotic romance with a rock and roll edge!

~ Is there any "truth" to in your books, for example, have you met a Rock Star that became your muse for the story or do you have a muse? All of my stories are based in some sort of truth. I believe in the adage, "write what you know" and I do that with every story whether it's my horror novels, my inspirational books or my erotic romances. I think writing about an actual event or at least basing part of your story in the truth, makes for a more believable story.
In Lick and a Promise, a lot of the people in the book are either real or based on real people who were in my life or are still there. All of the rockstars are based on real rockers!

~ Can you share what you might have in the works at this time? I am working on Book Two in the Rock Star Series which is a sequel to Lick and a Promise and I'll reveal the title soon. When you read Lick and a Promise and Poppy (our groupie) is on the tour bus and is thinking about other rock stars she has known, some she bedded, others she turned down...that is where this next book is going to lead...into what she didn't reveal in this one!

~ What types of music do you like to listen to? Classic Rock, Heavy Metal

~ Name 3 of your favorite Bands Aerosmith, Motley Crue' and BuckCherry (there are a few more but those are my favorites) I also love Led Zeppelin and Godsmack!

~ Do you create a playlist while you're working on your books? No, I have to have total peace and quiet when I write. You would think that an ole' 70's rocker chick would be jammin' out to something while I am writing but nah, I have to have silence when I am trying to write.

 ~ Name one Rocker you wouldn't mind meeting in person or have met in person I have loved Aerosmith since I was 10 years old and it would be a dream of mine to be allowed to have anything I want from inside Steven Tyler's closet. :)
