Sophie's Encore by Nicky Wells

Sophie’s Encore — The Blurb

Her rock star is waiting in the wings, but will he get a second chance? It’s all change for Sophie Jones—only this time, there is more at stake than just her happiness. Rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, has been her patient and caring friend through the highs and lows since her wedding day, but now he figures it is time for her to start over. By stealth, the rock singer draws Sophie into the behind-the-scenes work for his band’s latest album. Through the days and weeks spent together at the mixing desk, Sophie discovers whole new horizons for her life, yet before she can even begin to explore them, she faces the very real threat of losing her rock star for good. 

 Join Sophie and Dan in Sophie’s Encore to find out how their journey will end…

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in The Rock Star Romance Trilogy by Nicky Wells, and when Nicky kindly sent a copy of the final book in the series over to me to read and review, although I had ages until my review was due to go live I just had to make a start on this book to see what becomes of Sophie and Dan in this final book.

Dan has been Sophie’s rock, through all the ups and downs she has been through he has always been there for her to look after her. Sophie has been gradually trying to move on with her life since Steve’s death and Dan is trying to help her the last steps she needs to take and giving her something other than her children to live for by showing her life working behind the music scenes. Now it looks like the tables maybe turning and Sophie may need to step up and be Dans rock.

As much as I love trilogies I can usually always bet that the sequels are never as good as the first book, but this isn’t the case with The Rock Star Romance Trilogy I loved all of the books but this last book Sophie’s Encore has to be my favourite. Sophie and Dan both are very familiar characters by now and it just feels like you are sitting down with friends. They are both warm and loving characters and three books down the line they are still as entertaining as the first book. It is hard not to drool over Dan as I think he is every woman's secret crush, a rock god but with a big heart. Even the way he cares for his godchildren is very touching and he just seems to do all the right things by Sophie which leaves the reader like putty in his hands! Sophie is still working through stages of grief and trying to get her life on a new path and this is all brought out well in the book you can feel her emotion and I could only hope she was going to finally find her happy ending.

The storyline grabbed me straight from the start of this book and the pace of the book flowed effortlessly making it hard to put down (curse work for getting in the way of devouring this book in one go!) The book had everything you could hope for romance, pure emotion, and humour that had me chuckling away especially about the snail !

Nicky Wells has finished this book and indeed the series off perfectly and I am so glad that the series finished up as well as it did and that the author didn’t try and string the ending out. I will miss these wonderful characters. Make sure this book is on your to be read book this summer.
