Almost a Rock Star: Christian Edgy Contemporary Fiction (Rock Star Redemption Series Book 1) by Julie L. Spencer.
In the beginning, it was all about the music… until that wasn’t enough.
Child Prodigy and devoted musician, Ian Taylor, is torn between the teachings of his youth and the temptations of music and the stage.
He forms a rock band with his three best friends, helping them rocket to stardom and all the spoils that come with it.
But Ian’s heart is called to serve as a missionary. When he disappears for two years, Buxton Peak falls apart.
Returning to center stages brings its own challenges, and life as a rock star is not as easy as it once was. The guys have grown up, and the original dynamic of the band is lost in the distractions of substance abuse and women.
Can they pull their lives, and their music, back together? Can Ian learn forgiveness as he fights to become the man God wants him to be?
See where it all began…
Note from Julie: Thank you for taking the time to get to know the rock stars from Buxton Peak. I hope you love them just as much as I do. Even the bad boys still have good hearts. They are raw, real, flawed, down to earth characters and, although the books are clean, they have been described as edgy. Multiple times. That’s why I included edgy in the title. I want you, the reader, to know what you’re getting. I mean, what could possibly go wrong when you throw together a youth pastor from an inner-city church, an atheist womanizer, a Christian boy who served as a missionary for two years, and two recovering addicts, one of whom experiences a heartbreaking overdose. Cry with them. Hate them. Forgive them. Walk beside them as they fall in love, and sometimes out of love. And let me know what you think. I love feedback from my readers, and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Julie L. Spencer
