Alex is a former rock star living in the country in the UK. Blossom has been with him for over 20 years and fancies herself half in love with Alex. She has forgotten how to be a fairy and has become accustomed to the human lifestyle. She enjoys Alex’s coffee and his Jack drinks. One day she decides to go outside and runs into Beech, who is looking for a place to stay. He reminds Blossom of everything that she has forgotten, including that she needs to fly. But in finding her fairy roots again, will she be leaving Alex to a life of misery? Janet is the girl that Alex turns to when he needs a cleanup of his house and with a former bandmate coming in, he calls her again. Except this time he sees something different in her.
I give this book 4 tombstones. I though the concept of Blossom forgetting how to be a fairy while living with a human was an original and cute idea. Her following Alex because of his music spoke to me because I love listening to music and its such a big part of my life. I liked reading about the characters in this story. Beech was the perfect character to help Blossom and remind her of what being a fairy is all about. The romance scenes between Beech and Blossom were well written and I truly enjoyed reading them. I think Ms. Banks did an excellent job in this story. She even provided insight of what it might be like to be an aging rock star. I thought it was cute and enjoyable and it was definitely a light read. If you enjoy stories about fairies and are looking for something a little different, give Fairy Rock a try.
Book Excerpt: “When he retired from the world of rock music with the break up of his band, Alex retired from the world. Janet is about his only connection with the world anymore, but … she’s just a kid, way too young for an aging rock star.
Janet certainly doesn’t agree—she’s a woman not a kid—and Alex needs someone to take care of him and love him for what he is, not what he has. With the help of a little fairy magic, she discovers he isn’t as hard to convince as she’d thought he would be.”
