Review- To Cherish and To Hold (Love of a Rockstar #1.5) by Nicole Simone

Title:  To Cherish and To Hold (Love of a Rockstar #1.5)  
Author:  Nicole Simone
Publication Date:  March 10th 2015

Plot:  Luke and Marlene return in the follow up to the Amazon best selling novel, Love of a Rockstar

Marlene Parker got her fairy tale ending. Luke Anderson, her one and only love and their darling little girl are finally a family again. However, nobody said marrying a rockstar is easy. The media is out for blood, groupies are singing on Marlene’s front lawn and people are deeming her the new Yoko Ono. If that wasn’t enough, there is a wedding to plan and pies to bake. An expert in chaos, Marlene doesn’t get easily stressed. That is, until an unexpected pregnancy digs up old insecurities, potentially threatening the life she has worked so hard to gain. 

Will Marlene and Luke vow to cherish and to hold forever? 

Or was their story never meant to be?

This novella is a companion novel to the Love of a Rockstar series, but can be read as a standalone. .

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

To Cherish and to Hold was a continuation of Luke and Marlene’s story.

Following Luke’s marriage proposal and vow to leave his rock and roll world behind him, he and Marlene are still picking up the pieces of their relationship and trying to make a go at being a family with their 5-year old daughter Nil.

But with Luke’s disgruntled groupies, Marlene’s insecurities from the past re-arising, and an unexpected pregnancy digging up old hurts…how will they move forward from all of this?

And with a wedding to plan for, cakes to be made, and old and new obligations and dreams to be accounted for-- on top of all Luke and Marlene’s ever piling list, will their HEA come with a hefty price?

Definitely a cute novella, albeit altogether just what fans of this series were looking for, but also kind of jumpy and abrupt to be honest.

I actually would have liked to see a scene or two elongated a bit more or for the last two chapters not to feel so rushed. But beggars can't be choosers when you're reading a novella to begin with.

For bk3, Broken Lullabies, I’m really hoping for a few things from TCATH to be unfolded a little in a behind the scenes type of scenario from the two main characters, and for Camille’s tick with Matthew to be finally unveiled.

It’s definitely going to be one hell of an interesting one, as by judging by the book’s synopsis and the sneak peak that author Nicole Simone gave us at the ending of To Cherish and to Hold!! Gah, I can’t wait!!
