Plot: Michelle MacQueen has told readers that her Rockstars Anonymous series, of which this is the first, have guaranteed happy endings, and that’s reassuring to know through the many plot twists, heartbreaks, and betrayal that occur here.
Prose/Style: Much of the story is told through dialogue among the main characters and, because of this, the story moves along very quickly. However, we are given some insights into what the characters are thinking and what their struggles are.
Originality: Rockstars Anonymous is a terrific concept—who would have thought these celebrities’ lives were anything less than perfect? There are several subplots and at least three other romances happening all at the same time, which keeps the story interesting and the reader wondering what will happen next, and to whom?
Character Development/Execution: Over the course of the story, Piper learns her own worth and how to stop being subservient to her older sister. Ben, on the other hand, always knew how special Piper was; he just didn’t know he knew it. One thing that is very clear is how much the characters care about each other. Piper and Quinn’s relationship is central to the story as they struggle to get to know each other as adults.
