BLOG TOUR - (Review) - Before He Was A Secret (Starstruck #3) by Becky Wicks

The Book
Release Date: 24 February 2015
Goodreads Link

Another standalone Starstruck romance from the HarperCollins author who brought you Amazon #1 bestseller Before He Was Famous and Before He Was Gone
Every battle we win and lose
What if we decided years before, to live this life, to fight these wars
And all the dreams we ever thought were ours
Were written in the stars”

“What if we can’t choose

Waiting tables isn't exactly what singer/songwriter Stephanie has in mind for her move to Nashville, but memories of the past and a case of writer’s block mean inspiration isn’t coming easy. When brooding pianist Conor Judge opens his mouth in a smoky bar he proves music can heal, and even help you re-write your story, but a history of his own means the one thing he starts to want most is always just out of reach. Stephanie. 

Enter Travis Flynn - an upcoming star who won’t take no for an answer, and a record label intent on helping Stephanie shine, without Conor. As fame comes knocking as hard as the ghosts of their pasts, it soon becomes clear that no matter how hard you might fall in love, having the perfect songs doesn’t always mean perfect harmony.

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Although this book is part of a series, it can most certainly be read as a stand-a-lone book in which you miss nothing if you have not read the previous two books.  Although to me you have to read them, just because of how good they are :)

Again I have to say that the pages literally flew through my fingers as I devoured the story.

Stephanie we met in book two, but now she has moved to Nashville in order to help her family out and to chase a career writing music which is her dream.  She meets lots of nice people, along with Connor.

Connor has just split up with his long term girlfriend and regularly sings the songs he writes, which is where they first set eyes on each other.

Thrown together they find their mutual love for music brings them together along with the attraction that brings them closer and closer together.  Both have family troubles along with good friends and you can't help but want this pair to get together and have a HEA.

Would have loved to have an epilogue in which we get to see further down the line, but I am hoping that we get to see a little more of them in the next book in the series.

Becky Wicks lives in Bali and scribbles books, and she’s mostly powered by coffee. Her first book in the Starstruck Series, Before He Was Famous recently reached #1 in Amazon’s Coming of Age and New Adult & College categories, and her three travel books, published by HarperCollins are online to make feet nice and itchy. Mostly though, she loves to write love stories. She blogs most days at and always welcomes distractions on Twitter @bex_wicks. Especially if you have photos of cats.
