The Stage, A Phoenix Rising Novel: Book One,   Rebecca Shelby
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: New Adult, Romance,
 
I hate reality TV – actually I’ve seen very little TV for around five years now, but somehow I’ve found I really enjoy novels set around the plot of IT...go figure ;- ) So of course when I saw this, and read the sample it was a must read for me.
Its a great book, perfect blend of romance, drama and bits of the competition. there are some really interesting personalities and minor plots as well as the main ones of the romance and the competition. They're both  very centred around Mia and Kolton of course, we do see other contestants,  mentors, staff and others ,but it’s mostly just these two.
Its clear very early on how Kolton feels about Mia, and its pretty quickly clear that she feels the same even though his intensity scares her, and of course the programme organisers prohibit any kind of personal interaction. Kolton’s a rock star though, a huge draw to the audience, and he uses that to get what he wants, which is Mia and Riley, under his protection. I could understand why she was scared at times, angry at others, he really was OTT sometimes, going all out for what he saw as needed. Turns out he was right in some respects, but in others it was his actions that brought the dangers.
There’s parts of it, especially some of his actions, that were just so OTT they felt a little odd, and some of the Mia Phoenix name, the fires, the references to the Phoenix relevance felt a bit overdone and cheesy. Kind of milked for maximum impact but sometimes Less is More and that's the way I felt about how this part worked for me. Less would have felt more natural and less cheesy.

A young singer left to raise her kid sister after their parents' death finds her place in a television singing competition compromised when one of the superstar judges fails to hide his attraction to her.

Mia is immediately likable. She's put everything she has into giving her sister a good life. But she's running out of money and so jumps at the chance to audition for a new talent competition. Mia has a clear, strong point of view, and Shelby Rebecca does a great job showing us her hopes, fears and confusion as this journey she sets out on takes a turn for the surreal.

Kolton Royce is a complicated character. As the book opens, his immediate interest in Mia's well being seems odd and then, well, it borders on creepy. Mostly because he refuses to explain himself. As the story continues and we learn why Kolton feels so drawn to Mia, his intensity makes sense.

There's a wonderful dynamic in this book between the reader and each of the lead characters. Mia has such a compelling voice that when she's confused, we're confused. When she feels smothered, we feel smothered. As she comes to understand Kolton, we feel more comfortable with him.

The reader's relationship with Kolton is more complicated. He's incredibly secretive. And even when he tries to communicate, he's not all that great at it. He's had a rough life and his experiences have silenced him--music is his only means of true expression. Mia doesn't always get this, and her not getting it kind of floors him, because he thinks he's being so direct...that everything important is right there in the lyrics he texts her.

“The Stage” by Shelby Rebecca is not your typical rockstar romance. Though the expected level of sexual tension and hotness is present, there is more depth and emotion to it than you’d normally expect. The plot is unusual and the characters are original and unique.

Taking part in a casting show, Mia tries to get her life back on track. After the greatest loss a young girl could experience, she is left to pick up the pieces of her life and to take care of her younger sister.
Despite the tragedy that overshadows her young life, she is extremely strong and under the circumstances quite optimistic. But she has a hard time letting anyone close and is bad at trusting others, as the past has offered her more than a fair share of heartache.
Loving to sing, she figures giving a singing career a try could secure her and her sister’s financial future.
Little does she know that her life will be flipped upside down and the contest itself is the smallest factor in it.

A much bigger reason in the chaos that ensues, is Kolton. Big rockstar and even bigger man-whore and party animal, he is one of the judges on the show. Kolton always has gotten what he wanted – except one tragic night. He’s mesmerized not only by Mia’s voice, but also by her story – feeling a connection between their souls and hearts.
He’s interest quickly turns into more – making him protective, possessive and slightly obsessed, without being creepy. He wants to help Mia and makes it his mission to support her, while trying to keep their relationship professional – not of his own accord but for her benefit. But his feelings quickly turn into more than just professional interest and no matter how much she might fight it, Mia feels the same. For Kolton, Mia is the only person he can be himself with.
