Product Description

They fell in love in an instant … so why have they spent a lifetime apart?

As a teenager Kellie dated an American boy but circumstances meant they went their separate ways. Now he’s back and she’s so tempted to see him again. But two decades have passed and they are both married with children.
And the last thing a celebrity reporter like her needs is the world finding out about her past relationship with a rock star. Especially as Kellie’s husband doesn’t even know she once dated AJ Dangerfield, lead singer of legendary band Danger Game. And she has no intention of him finding out. EVER.
As Kellie deals with a demanding boss, a bullied son, an infuriating mother-in-law and a best friend who won’t act her age, she finds herself playing a dangerous game. What will happen if her two worlds collide? And is it possible that first love never fades?

'Don’t Mention the Rock Star reads like a classic rock ballad full of love, lies and regret. If you are bored of New York and tired of LA then head to Oz, where love is just as complicated.'
- Novelicious

‘Don’t Mention The Rock Star is my favorite sort of love story, where two people who are meant to be together lose each other somewhere along the way. Bree Darcy’s writing is funny, entertaining, and surprising.’
- Chelsey Krause, author

‘Bree Darcy makes an auspicious debut with this compelling story of love, marriage, family and friendship that twists and turns and keeps readers guessing … an engaging, satisfying read to the last.’
- Irene Wringe, journalist

I really enjoyed Bree Darcy’s debut novel which was recommended to me by a friend. It was an easy read with an interesting storyline and very likable characters. I loved the chemistry between Kellie & Andy and the use of flashbacks was great. A fun weekend beach read :)
5.0 out of 5 stars Review: 'Don't Mention the Rock Star' by Bree Darcy 1 March 2015
By Jody - "A Spoonful of Happy Endings" - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When she was just a teenager, Kellie fell head over heels in love with American bad boy Andy who was in Australia visiting his family. The two of them were inseparable, but things suddenly changed and they both went their seperate ways. These days, Kellie is married to Curtis and tries to juggle both taking care of their children and her job as a celebrity gossip journalist. Andy is now A.J. Dangerfield, lead singer of world famous rock band Danger Games, and happily married with kids. Due to certain events at work, Kellie unexpectedly gets back into touch with Andy and while she knows she's taking a big risk by letting Andy back into her life (especially since her family doesn't even know about her connections with the famous rock star) she can't seem to stop herself. Did Kellie really get over Andy and vice versa, or is there still a trace of a spark between them?

The basic storyline of 'Don't Mention the Rock Star' is quite a classic one within the world of chick lit, but the author has definitely managed to make it her own and turn it into a thoroughly enjoyable read. The novel has some well-drawn and easily loveable characters at its core. I immediately warmed to Kellie and Andy was unlike any other male hero I've come across before; I loved how unique and funny he was. The reader is also introduced to Kellie's husband Curtis, their children, her mother-in-law, her colleagues, and her best friend. Since the novel is quite long, there was more than enough time to get to know all these characters and their background stories, and I really fell in love with all of them as the story progressed (except for Curtis, whom I couldn't help but intensely dislike!).

As I already mentioned, the book is quite long. I have to admit it was a bit daunting to me at first, but when I got into the story I really couldn't get enough of it. I loved all the flashbacks to the past, seeing how a young Andy and Kellie got together, how they grew up, and how everything eventually turned into the present situation. I also enjoyed all the different locations of the story: Australia, the UK, the USA. But most of all, I just really enjoyed the author's writing style. This was such an entertaining and comfortable read; I honestly loved it. 'Don't Mention the Rock Star' is an amazingly entertaining and simply wonderful debut novel; I loved everything about it and I already have high hopes for Bree Darcy's next work, hopefully we won't have to wait too long!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Mention the Rock Star 16 January 2015

I received a review copy
Don’t Mention the Rock Star was a quick read, thanks to the short and snappy sections, and to the point plot. We bounce around from Kellie’s past and present, meeting the boy she dated back in the day, and learning about the man she married. This book was really interesting because it discusses the question of can we ever forget our first love, and the added twist in here is that Kellie’s first love went on to become a successful rock star – and now he’s back on the scene. There are plenty of other twists and turns along the way, including one that really took me by surprise. Definitely thought-provoking – give it a read!

3.0 out of 5 stars A tad heavy in the mood and feel 24 March 2015
By Zee Monodee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Had a bit of a hard time getting into this book because (sadly) I did not like the heroine. Something about her rubbed me the wrong way and so I wasn't able to connect with her to really enjoy the tale. The continuous to-and-fro veering between past and present also threw me off-loop many times (maybe if you read this in one go, it's not confusing, but I was going and coming back and losing track every time I tried to get back in).

I'd also expected this book to be more chick-lit/humourous in vibe, but it was almost straight-blown women's fiction with an almost literary feel that struck me as heavy and, I'll admit, going against my fluffy reads-addicted mind.

Not saying it's a bad book, but I suppose it's one of those tales that better be your cup of tea to really enjoy.

(received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review)
4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and funny- a great beach read. 17 April 2015
By Tess Woods - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Kellie's first love Andy left Australia when they were still teenagers to go and chase his rock star dreams in the US. Two decades later, Kellie is a journalist living in Perth and Andy is a now a household name in the music business. They are both married to other people and they are both parents but they have never forgotten each other and the intense love they had. So when Andy comes back to Australia and back into Kellie's life, things are bound to get messy.
This debut by Australian author Bree Darcy is classic, light, funny chick lit, just the way chick lit should be. It's the quintessential love triangle and a great beach read. What I particularly enjoyed about Don't Mention the Rockstar was that it was littered with pop culture references from the past twenty years and for me it was a sentimental trip down memory lane to my own youth with New Kids on the Block, Sir Mix-A-Lot and Nirvana amongst many others popping up on the page. I like how the story is told both in the present and then in flashback and the supporting cast of characters including Kellie's work mates and her family and Andy's band mates all added dimension. There's a nice twist in the story too.
I look forward to more from this fun and talented author.
