Fabulous box set!

I tried this new to me author because I can’t resist a boxed set for one credit and boy am I glad I did! This is one full length novel and two novellas all following the members of one band. If you love a rockstar romance then you are in luck because you get three for the price of one. Slow-burn, insta-love and somewhere in the middle are the way to describe the speed of these stories that are sure to satisfy everyone when it comes to the kind of love you like to read about. There’s no cheating, very low angst, sweet to steamy romance, all which makes for just a great easy listen that will make you want your own rockstar to sweep you off you feet. The narrators are all first-class and amazing and really take these books to another level where you just can’t stop listening till you have finished the whole thing in one sitting. Totally worth the credit and now I’m going to see what else this author has done.

A True MUST Read!

This trilogy was amazing! I laughed, cheered, cried, and enjoyed every single moment.
The writing was brilliant and engaging, and the characters relatable and likable.
One point that I particularly liked was that there were different narators for each book. I'm a huge fan of Sebastian York's voice, however that is one thing in a series that has always faintly bothered me. It really separates out the stories and makes them feel more realistic to me.
So a HUGE bravo Lisa! Thank you for this fantastic ride!

Incredible rockstar romance series

Starfish ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
I’ve got two words for you. ONE. BED. That’s the review and all you really need to know.
JK. Starfish is literally everything i look for in a romcom. A forced proximity, workplace/rockstar romance set on tour with a rock band. I absolutely loved this couple and their chemistry was soooo good! Brad was just as sweet and patient as could be and his love for Marin made me swoon. My fellow Coffee Girl fans need to get their hands on this one!!!

Dear Future Self ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A quick novella focusing on Jason, lead singer and playboy rockstar. As he returns to his small hometown, he falls for his former childhood friend, music teacher, Cami. I liked seeing Jason rediscover his softer side. Becker packed a surprising amount of steam and depth into this quick read!!

Jokes on You ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have to say, this was the best romcom novella I have ever read!! I mean it. The whole time I was listening I just wanted time to slow down. I adored Oliver and Rowan, their steamy connection, and the incredible side characters. All I wanted from this book was MORE. (Definitely a TW of workplace sexual harassment.)

Hilarious, Heartfelt, and Steamy Romance!

What a fun and steamy collection about 3 sexy rock stars and the 3 smart and sassy women who love them!
#1 Starfish
4.5 Steamy Adorkable Stars!
I absolutely loved this delightful, sweet and steamy forbidden romance. Marin is so excited to land an internship for a tech company, only to find out they placed her as the pr person for a rock band on a summer tour. She is so out of her element and knows nothing about the band, Kings Quarters. But she has a great sense of humor and is able to roll with the crazy antics by the band members. Brad is the lead guitarist and an adorkable hero. He is tired of the rockstar life and would rather work on developing his computer programs. When sweet and sexy Marin steps on the bus, the sparks fly between them. I loved how they were friends first and still committed to doing their jobs. But the chemistry between them was smoldering throughout. I fell for Marin, Brad, all the band members and Marin's roommate, Grace. They all felt genuine, and added so much fun and emotion to this story. I was completely addicted to Erin Mallon, and Sebastian York's amazing narration! They were superb as Marin and Brad as they brought the fun and nerdy couple to life. I easily felt all the awkward moments, passion, heartbreak, joy, and love these characters felt. I loved both their deliveries as they made this hilarious, heartwarming, sweet and sexy story pure perfection!

#1.5 Dear Future Self
I loved this second book in the Starfish series! Even though is was a novella, I really cared for, and became invested in Jason and Cami's second chance at love. They were best friends who were becoming more when Jason left Cami behind to become a successful rock star. Now he is home for a funeral and he and Cami must work together to plan it. It is a bit rough at first with Cami feeling hurt from being forgotten so easily. But the more time they spend together, getting to know each other now, old feelings and desires come back to life. Jason wants to be a better man for not only Cami but for himself. But it won't be easy to make it work when their careers take them so far away from each other. This is a sweet, and sizzling romance brought to life flawlessly by Tim Paige, and a cameo from Kelsey Navarro. Paige really captured the feel of this friends to lovers romance. He did a great job with the different voices and his inflections were spot on. This is a quick and enjoyable addition to the Starfish series!

#2 Joke's On You
This is an irresistibly sweet and funny rom-com. Rowan and Oliver meet one night and have an incredible night of passion, never expecting to see each other again. But they really enjoyed each other and connected in a way they didn't see coming. Rowan is a professional photographer but her passion is to make jewelry. She has a boss who is a real creep but needs this job until she gets her jewelry business off the ground. Oliver is a famous Rockstar and he likes that Rowan doesn't know who he is. He likes how smart and funny she is and that she likes him for who he is. He wants to help her but she wants to be successful on her own. Will they be able to make it work when she discovers who he is and when they are both so stubborn? There is so much to love about this story, from the quick wit and banter, to the lovable quirky characters, to the sizzling passion, and every hilarious, heartwarming, awkward moment in between that will leave you smiling for days.
Connor Crais and Stella Hunter did a great job narrating this hilarious romcom and bringing it to life. Their comedic timing and inflections were spot on as they delivered Becker's witty banter flawlessly. I really enjoyed both their performances and thought they made this hilarious, heartfelt, and sweet & steamy romance even better!

Fun rockstar romances

Starfish - 5 stars
A great light and sexy romcom. Enjoyed all the characters and storyline. Recommend.

Dear Future Self - 4.5 stars
Sweet novella
Loved that this was all in the male POV (FYI, audio all Tim Paige and only the epilogue was Kelsey Navarro).

Jokes on you - 4 stars
Fun novella
I enjoyed it but was my least favorite. The sexual harassment was too much for this short story but enjoyed everything else. A fun finish to the excellent series!

Narration was excellent for every story- great choices for all the characters.

This Starfish Box Set Rocks! Outstanding Listen🎧

I am a huge fan of Rock Stars and Rock Star Romance novels and Lisa Becker’s Starfish series is one of my favorites. Ms. Becker is a gifted author with a wonderful writing style, I loved the characters and storylines she created, they are original and unique, nope they are not your typical angsty rockstars they are so much more. In the first book, “Starfish” you not only meet the members of the band “Kings Quarters” but you join them on tour as well. You will fall in love with each one of them, Jase, Johnny, Oliver, Craig and Brad. Marin is interning with a public relations firm, while it was not her choice assignment she gets to tour with the band for the summer. The second book, “Dear Future Self” is Jase & Cami’s story, it is a fabulous second chance story with interesting storylines that are unique and original. The third book, “Joke’s on You” is Oliver & Rowan’s story, a fitting title for Oliver since he was the prankster of the band. He finally finds his special someone but he kind of has his work cut out for him. I loved each one of these books, it is great to get lost in Lisa Becker’s stories and the world she built. More detailed reviews for each book follows.

Starfish ~ Narrated by: Erin Mallon, Sebastian York

I loved everything about this book, from Lisa Becker’s wonderful writing style to the characters and storylines and she created to Erin Mallon & Sebastian York’s amazing narration. Heck, I even love the title and the story behind it. ;) I am a huge fan of Rock Star romance books and Lisa Becker does not disappoint, her storylines are original and different then your typical angsty romance, which I found refreshing in many ways. The characters are complex and well developed. I adored Marin and Brad as well as his bandmates. I loved the camaraderie amongst the band members and the pranks they played. Marin landed a much wanted summer internship with the public relations firm. She was excited thinking she will be doing P.R for a tech company in Seattle. But when she and the other interns received their assignment she learned her assignment was changed, she would be working with and going on tour with “Kings Quarters”, an up and coming rock band. She got to meet the manager, Damon and band members Jase, Johnny, Oliver, Craig and Brad just before going on their bus for a four month tour. Brad was instantly attracted to her, she was attracted to him too but vowed to never get involved with someone she works for and will keep it completely professional. These two were great together and for each other, they become good friends & confidants. He wanted to take their relationship to another level and knew she was afraid but he is a patient man. I loved how well plotted this book is, a lot goes on and there is never a dull moment. There is plenty of drama, a bit of angst, some great humor, some heartfelt moments, heartbreaking ones, twists with betrayals as well as a slow burn romance. Lisa Becker, thank you for this awesome story, the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

Dear Future Self: A Starfish Novella ~Narrated by: Tim Paige, Kelsey Navarro

One of the reasons I loved “Starfish”, the first book in the series was the amazing characters, I was so happy to hear Lisa Becker was not done with them. Jase Connors was the lead singer of “Kings Quarter” before the band imploded, Damon, the band’s manager took Jase out on his own and he became a successful solo artists. While on tour his Mom calls to inform him Mr. Hancock, his HS teacher who he had a good relationship with, passed away. Jase returned home for the funeral, he also learns Mr. Hancock left something in his will for him. Cami Ossining was good friends with Jase, they’ve known each other since they were young kids, she knew him when he was just Jason McNamara, the kid next door and boy she crushed on, but he went on to be famous and forgot all about her. When Jase went to the reading of the will she was there, while he was glad to see her, she was not thrilled to see him and he could not understand why until he realized how he treated and ignored her. But the two had to work together to follow thru on Mr. Hancock’s last wishes. I loved how everything plays out in this book, also love how much story Lisa Becker managed to fit in this novella sized book. It is well written and cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, a bit of angst, some heartfelt moments and some hot romance. It was great to hear a little about Brad and Marin, great to see Damon has not changed his conniving ways, too NOT! So glad all works out in the end and they get their happily ever after. Thank you for another awesome story, I loved the premise of “Dear Future Self”, loved Cami and Jase’s letters too and Mr. Hancock’s sly move. 🎧📚🎧 Lisa Becker chose the perfect cast to bring this story and its characters to life, Tim Paige and Kelsey Navarro are talented narrators and voice artists. Tim Paige is a rock star, he portrayed Jason perfectly, captured his personality and all his emotions which can be heard in his performance, he did a great job with all the other characters too. Kelsey Navarro knocked it out of the park in the final chapter with Mia’s POV, she too grasped her character’s persona perfectly.

Joke’s On You ~ Narrated by: Stella Hunter, Connor Crais

Oliver Eastland was the prankster of the bunch and one of my favorite characters. And I am so happy that he got his own book, it is great to see him again and to learn more of who he is and where life has taken him. If you have not started this series I highly recommend that you do and now is the perfect time because it is offered in a box set. Oliver is doing well for himself these days, each member went their own way after Kings Quarters split up. Oliver a musical prodigy still makes music and plays, he always liked to stay in the background so instead of joining a band he just tours with them. One night he decides to go out with the band after a photo shoot. It is a gay club and he was not expecting to meet any one but he does, he meets and hooks up with Rowan Edwards. Rowan Edwards works as an assistant photo editor, it is not what she wants to do but it pays her bills. Her dream job is something she does on the side, she designs her own jewelry and one day it will pay her bills. She is good at her photography gob but has a boss who is inappropriate, she deals with him for now but she is smart about how she handles him. After a bad day at work she and her roommate and best friend Rolando go out for drinks at Haven, a hot gay club. Rowan does not normally do one night stands but she and Oliver hit is off, there was something about him that drew her to him. They had one hot night together but she left in the morning without a word. Oliver knew he had to see her again and did just that. This may be a novella sized book but it sure does pack a whole lot of story, I loved the witty dialogue and how everything plays out. The story is cleverly plotted with drama, a touch of angst, humor, heartfelt and emotional moments and some hot romance. 🎧📚🎧 Stella Hunter and Connor Crais are talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They do an awesome job portraying these characters, humanizing them as they bring them and their story to life. I love how they take each role and make it their own while sounding natural and believable in that role. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They set the perfect tone for the story, handle the witty dialogue with ease and land the humor flawlessly.

Thank you!

Amazing series!

Fall in love with this swoony, rockband box set with amazing romances and feel good stories.

Starfish
If you are looking for a story that has a great foundation, a fantastic slow burn, wonderful characters and an incredible narrating team, then you have found the book for you! Starfish features Marin, a woman who thought she was getting the perfect tech internship, only to find herself on a tour bus chronicling the life and times of a rock band. She was not ready for this, but was going to make the best of this four month stint. Brad, the lead guitarist of the rock band immediately felt an attraction, but with the reputation of a rocker and the aloofness of Marin, he decided to take it slow. And this burn was just that. I was invested in their story, willing to follow them from city to city and see the romance grow. Lisa Becker didn't dwell on the paparazzi or dealing with being famous, but wrote a true love story about real people. It's so easy to fall for the image, but this let us be on the inside, get to know Brad and his dreams. It's a refreshing look at the possibilities we don't know as the fans, and I am so glad we got to tour with them!The narration team of Erin Mallon and Sebastian York is a dream. They brought this story to life, enhancing the characters with their voices, and let us develop an image of them. I love both and really enjoyed their performance.

Dear Future Self: A Starfish Novella
Jason comes home to the reading of a will from one of his teachers and meets up with his old best friend, Cami. And the sparks fly. Hurt, miscommunications, lust and just good old history meld these two together in a way that only Lisa Becker can bring out. I was captivated by the two. I loved Jase. He is exactly as I picture a famous rock star, a little full of himself, generous but realizing there is more to life. I love Cami. She is secure in her life, loves being a music teacher and knows her feelings. I loved the Girl Scout, give me a box of thin mints any day, and the Dear Future Self letters. It's so much fun to see your past you! It's a quick listen, it's fun, humorous and a great way to spend a couple of hours! Tim Paige is a fantastic story teller and he brings all the characters to life. He gives Jase the perfect voice. A little cocky, yet very and makes him very believable. He quickly can change to Cami, and bring her feelings to light. Add in the end with some fun with Kelsey Navarro and this novella rocks it!

Joke's On You
I am not sure how Lisa Becker does it, but his novella has stolen my heart in 2 hours! Oliver is the piano player for a popular rock band. Rowan is a photographer looking for a night of fun. Not one for one night stands, she can't resist the charms of Oliver, but before we awakes, she is gone leaving him a note. Does this deter him? No, and his persistence is worth it. A romance where love for the person is forefront, relevant work situations brought to light and music make this a great listen! I loved it! Connor Crais and Stella Hunter are such fantastic story tellers, and they fell into character with ease. Crais has an easy warmth that came through in Oliver. I enjoyed hi romancing Rowan. Rowan is strong in some scenes and frightened in others and Hunter brings all the different feelings out. I enjoy his team whenever they perform together and this casting was spot on!
