Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I love Becky’s writing style and the Starstruck series. Its great to have books like these where each is a stand alone, complete, no cliff-hangers!! Yet they are connected, so we meet characters from earlier books in the new ones. In this one we see Noah and Chloe from book one again, and there are phone calls with Alyssa from book two.
I had forgotten Stephanie was one of the competitors in the last book, and had to sneak back to it to recall her backstory. It’s covered in this book, but a bit later in and I wanted to know now! I’m always impatient – in fact sometimes I skip to end of book just to see what’s going to happen. It doesn’t spoil it for me, I still get upset, happy, angry at whatever happens. I re read favourite books so knowing the story or the end is fine for me.
Anyway here she is in Nashville, waiting tables while trying to find her way into the music world. Her and hundreds of others....When she meets Connor and hears him singing his own songs she’s inspired, but its not til after an unexpected encounter and they go to a jamming session with other song/music writers that they discover how well they write together. Thus starts a great partnership. They’re both holding back though, keeping secrets about their pasts and motives. Connor's keeping quiet about his split from long time girlfriend Grace, and though she’s on holiday everyone- including his very religious family and church group – still think they are together. Why doesn’t he say anything? Then there’s Stephanie, and she’s got her own past demons that affect her music. Secrets – they always get spilled sooner or later.Read more ›
The main characters in book one are Noah Lockton and Chloe Campbell, and they have fast become one of my favourite couples in a book ever. I love how Becky creates relationships and characters that stay with you and have such an impact. She does exactly the same with her two leading characters in Before He Was A Secret, Stephanie Jackson and Conor Judge.
We are first introduced to the character of Stephanie in book 2 when she is one of the contestants on the reality tv show Deserted however Before He Was A Secret has a totally separate storyline and can easily be read as a standalone novel. Steph's life was turned totally upside down by the death of her parents when she was in her teens leaving her responsible for her 2 younger brothers. After being on Deserted and with the financial burden of having to support her brothers, Steph decides to follow her dream of having a music career and moves to Nashville.
A financial burden is not the only burden Steph carries. She blames herself for her parents' accident and has carried the guilt and hurt from that fateful day for a long time. So the last thing she is looking for when she reaches Nashville is a relationship.Read more ›
After we met Stephanie Jackson in Before He Was Gone (Starstruck #2); she moved to Nashville to see if she can make it in the music industry and hopefully be able to make some money to send home to her Aunt and brothers.
Conor Judge has lived in Nashville all of his life. He works at his family’s music shop, writes songs and plays at local open mike nights.
When the two meet they become instant friends through their mutual love of music. What follows could make them chart toppers or a complete flop depending on the input of other people who may or may not upset their happy balance.
This is a great story of friendship and young love.
Both characters have history. Stephanie’s back story is one of sadness after a tragic accident which caused the death of her parents. Conor’s is one which I wasn’t expecting. He was raised by very religious parents, and his life has been controlled by this. Religion is one subject that a lot of author’s stay away from for fear of offending people. Wicks, covers the subject of religious communities briefly and well in my opinion. I felt sorry for Conor because he has always tried to please his father and do the right thing, but sometimes this has been at the expense of doing what he really wants to. Even his relationship with Stephanie must be kept a secret.
I love the characters in this book; even the background characters- Tal, Lou, E-beth, Indie Pete. We also see the return of Noah and Chloe from Before He Was Famous and also Denzel the demon manager- this guy makes my blood boil, but serious thanks to Becky Wicks for creating someone I can hate so much!Read more ›

Although this book is part of a series, it can most certainly be read as a stand-a-lone book in which you miss nothing if you have not read the previous two books. Read morePublished on 12 May 2015 by Mrs B's Books
I really enjoyed this book, I wasn't expecting to like Stephanie after the end of the last book but I found that after I really got into her character. Read morePublished on 14 April 2015 by merikidbek
