About Groupie:

Moving to a new city isn’t the magic fix Lexie Travis hoped it would be. Sure, she put some mileage between herself and her feuding parents, her miserable dating history, and the memories of a life-altering injury. However, she still feels like a former shadow of herself, hiding behind her diminished confidence and her thorough disbelief in true love. Everything changes when Lexie’s best (and only) friend drags her to a country music concert. Lexie loves country music, but she loathes the top-selling heartthrob who sold out the arena. Jack Morgan became a sensation with a string of degrading, shallow songs that she can’t stand. A startling trauma lands Jack in the hospital, and Lexie is the physical therapist assigned to the VIP treatment of the very man she despises. Jack is drawn to the one woman who appears resistant to his charms and who loves to check his ego every chance she gets, yet gives him the honesty he needs. She’s the opposite of his usual groupies. He can only continue his tour if he receives rehab on the road, and Lexie is the lone person Jack trusts for the job. Reluctantly, she agrees to take the journey on his luxury coach, joining the wild cast of characters on his crew. Yes, she was given many incentives to take the assignment, but the reason she wants to ignore is the dangerous one. Jackson Morgan is growing on her. At every turn, another challenge pushes her away from him. Stepping onto the tour bus is the domino that starts a chain reaction in their lives and challenges them both to change. Could they learn to believe in love and happily ever after? *Please note: Groupie is Volume One in a two-part series

  When reading Groupie (Groupie #1) by Susan Daugherty its easy to see that this author comes from a “PT” background, because it seems she sure knows what she is talking about. Maybe even a little too much? Because at times for me as a non professional in that area the description of the repeated processes - while definitively necessary – still felt overwhelming at times.

But still – the author gave her story leading characters the same kind of “real” that she gave those processes and it did the story a favor. During the whole read it felt like this could have happened at any given time in real life, which I liked a lot.

Lexie and Jack both have flaws that get in their ways and yet both are sweet and well developed characters. Their developing relationship was served at a nice pace and it was fun following them on their journey.

In the end I could only go with 4 stars because it was the reality that also got in the way of the missing star, because what happened felt real but not good. My Kindle told me I was nearing the end and I could feel that something was “wrong”, while it is not a cliffhanger in the usual sense it is an open end and a not satisfying one. 

Also I am having a slight problem with the events leading to that end because given the whole “real” feeling of the book it was just in those last 5-10% where the story suddenly at least in part left the “real” and it did not go over well for me.

Anyway I was thinking for a minute “this is the end? Seriously?” so when I read that there would be a sequel I can only say that I hope it will pick up where we left here, because this story needs a closure and I am looking forward to it.
