FINAL SERENADE (The Encore #1)

FINAL SERENADE                             N. N. BRITT

A secret affair with your teenage celebrity crush? Yes, please!

Music journalist Cassy Evans believes her career is made when she snags an exclusive interview with rock singer Frankie Blade.

Once a superstar of the generation, Frankie has been a recluse since a freak motorcycle incident sent his career into a tailspin seven years ago. Now that he’s returned to claim back his crown, Cassy hopes to kill two birds with one stone—secure her magazine a top spot in the rankings and meet with the man of her adolescent dreams.

A dinner invitation isn’t what she expects to get out of this interview, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.

With paparazzi watching Frankie’s every move as the two jumps into a stormy relationship, Cassy risks her career and her privacy—and possibly her heart—to be with the biggest rockstar on the planet. But is Frankie worth it? Is he the humble man she thinks he is or is he just that good at hiding his demons?

Final Serenade is the first installment in “The Encore” series. Cassy and Frankie’s story concludes in One Last Verse.


I can’t even begin to tell you how this story pulls you in. Especially, if you are a music lover of any sort and wonder, “How do they do that or get backstage?” Well, not sure if this is all true to form but it is sure believable. I am sure creative licensing too. With a lot of entertaining that is for sure.

Cassy Evans is a young yet well-respected music journalist for an online music magazine. She and her partner Levi snag a shot for her to interview Frankie Blade a lead rock singer for the hottest international band around, Hall Affinity. They have been out of circulation due to the motorcycle accident Frank had seven years ago.

They are planning a comeback reunion and are handing out exclusive interviews. Cassy is one to get one on camera but it’s scrubbed because Frankie and she had firework chemistry and what Frankie wants Frankie gets. All because he asks her out is not allowed to use the on-air interview only the written one.

He intrigues her and she can’t understand why because, one there is a thirteen-year age difference. Two, she’s a journalist, ‘Who does that when you’re a celebrity?’ Three, she’s a nobody from nowhere. Last, she is nothing to look at.

Frank likes her it seems for a lot of those reasons. The age difference doesn’t seem to bother her and she thinks he’s sexy for his age. He laughs arrow to the heart. Because she is a journalist, she is not afraid to speak her mind or ask the hard questions. He likes that she has her integrity for her profession that she doesn’t want to you him to get ahead. Most of all he thinks she’s beautiful.

This book is an emotional rollercoaster. Not like tears but frustration as to how each of the characters handles a certain situation at any time. How Cassy is a pushover to Frank so much. Anyway, if I didn’t already have book two as a regular reader, I would have hated the ending. You would expect this ending from a TV program but not a book your reading.

Sorry, such a cliffhanger had me great till then. I give this: 3 stars. It would have been a 4 because I was totally invested in characters but with the ending… I would still read the next book. Provided by
