    From the bestselling HarperCollins author of Burqualicious, Balilicious, Latinalicious and Amazon new adult romance bestseller Before He Was Gone

    "Super-sexy, fast-paced and unputtdownable. Get ready for Chloe and Noah to break your heart in a romantic best friends to lovers romance that'll rock your libido!" - Sarah Alderson - (author of Hunting Lila, Fated & The Sound)

    One guy, one girl. One in the spotlight. One in the shadows.

    Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton - the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime - to join her celebrity childhood best friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger - she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?

    The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other?

    ***Warning: this new adult book contains graphic language, sex and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***

    5.0 von 5 Sternen completely blown away!!! amazing!! 27. Mai 2014
    Von Jessica Sotelo (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads) - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I'm blown away. I hate to be cliche in my review for a book that's anything but cliche. Nothing about this book is cliche. You've never heard this rock star story before. The characters, the plot, the writing... all of it is just so original and refreshing. It's angsty and smart and clever. It's sweet, and gut wrenching, sometimes scary. It's everything.

    This book follows Noah Lockton as he is catapulted into music stardom after winning a televised music competition. (Think American Idol.) Told in alternating first person points of view, the reader is taken along for this roller coaster ride with Noah and his lifelong best friend, Chloe, as they navigate the waters of his newfound fame.

    Noah is instantly famous after his big win, but this is no stereotypical rock star love story. There's a sadness running quietly throughout this story, an underlying sense of loss that Noah is going places and leaving Chloe behind. I felt my heart silently breaking even before anything had happened to make me feel that way. This story is about friendship, about loss, about the fear of losing the constant of a best friend when life sends you in different directions. But it's so much more than that. Because simmering quietly beneath this friendship is a love story.

    When Chloe finds herself on tour with Noah, as a blogger for a magazine, the dynamic between the two changes drastically. Sure, the fear of being physically left behind is gone. But with so many newfound obstacles introduced to their lives, the story takes a turn into completely unpredictable territory. Their feelings continue to grow and change, but the expectations and obligations of Noah's career combined with Chloe's confusion over where she fits, things only deteriorate. Despite their proximity, being on tour together, they never really feel attainable to each other. They never say what they're feeling, they're always on different pages, dating someone else... the angst, the feeling of distance despite their closeness is palpable. sad. There's always something keeping them from being on the same page... girlfriends, boyfriends, jobs, fame, all juxtaposed with their own failure to communicate makes for a heart wrenching story. My stomach was in knots the entire story thorough. The feeling of longing is a tangible thing, I lived it right alongside these characters.

    I can't say enough about what Becky Wicks has done with this story. Her writing is superb, pulling the reader in from the very first page and never letting go. These characters were developed so perfectly, this story so layered and complex. Every single character in this book was crafted so deliberately, so specifically, no matter how secondary they are to the plot. The dialogue is fluid and natural and real. The pace and the build so perfect. There is no lull, never for a second did I feel bored or removed from the story. I was in it, every single page. This author has retold the story of Peter Pan and his shadow in the most mesmerizing, beautiful manner.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful plot with amazing characters.. a definite must-read! 28. Mai 2014
    Von Ms. Bookaholic - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    First off, I would like to advise you to have a hanky on hand as this will bring you tears of joy, sadness, and triumph. It also includes unlimited romance and butterflies in your stomach. =D

    This is the first time I read a novel from Becky Wicks and I was reluctant at first. I assume that it will go along the usual story line and cheesiness like in most romance novel, but I was so wrong. With the first few chapters alone, I was totally HOOKED! This is one of the few novel’s I’ve read that doesn’t have any dull pages. I know that even some of the famous novels has its own dreary parts where we tend to skim just to reach the exciting ones, but this one is truly different. The author really knows what she’s doing and you can see that she really has the edge in becoming a great (& famous!) author.

    The plot is very well-researched, as if you’re actually thrown in the midst of the rich and famous. I didn’t find any loopholes in the story line, which is usually the first thing I’d notice when reading a book. The characters are well created and established, making them all essential in building up the story. One of the lines I would never forget is “You have to fight to stay on the shore, no matter how many times it pushes you away.” I can’t wait to watch this line being told on the big screen. I wouldn’t even be surprised when this happens. This novel never fails to surprise me and the story’s twists and turns are definitely something to look forward to.

    I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to fall in love again. This is definitely one of the stories you’ll never forget.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Breathtaking, beautiful, sexy...the trifecta!! 27. Juni 2014
    Von Runmom - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I knew from the moment I started this read that this was going to be one of those books that got to me. Chloe sits watching her best friend, the boy who knew her inside and out, about to become something so much bigger than just “her Noah”, and I was a goner! The concept here was simple, but something I hadn’t come across with all of these stories about rock stars and the woman they love. It combines the perfect elements that make us swoon, with the modernized update of a reality show being the start of everything. Chloe’s best friend Noah, who’s always been an insanely talented singer, enters in a contest and suddenly takes off as an artist. We get to see not only the present, where she’s coming to grips with her feelings, but also all of the beautiful moments they shared that led up to them being a couple that I will never forget.

    Noah and Chloe were one of those really complicated love stories. Their past was full of the typical ups and downs that childhood friends deal with, but there was also that day, the moment that changed everything. The day Chloe needed him in order to forget and get past the sorrow that was consuming her, and Noah was there as more than just her shoulder to lean on. And ooooh my was he ever there for her, in a scene that had me fanning myself and wishing for my own version of Noah!! But I’m getting ahead of myself now, because there was a lot of denial going on before Chloe or Noah would ever fully come to grips with just how much that day meant to both of them. And that’s how we really got to know these amazing characters, through Noah’s rise to fame as Chloe watched, and how they both came to grips with what not being together was doing to them. Every moment, from Chloe’s attempts to rid Noah from her mind to the brainless women in his life because he couldn’t have the one he loved, was like a shot to the heart because I just wanted them to get their chance.

    Just thinking about Noah and Chloe’s journey makes my heart race, and I guarantee you this will be one that stays with you. Every moment, from the most seemingly insignificant reference to their goofy childhood Peter Pan play to their heart-wrenching declarations, was just so achingly sweet that my heart was hurting for these two. I have to hand it to Becky Wicks, because her writing was absolutely beautiful as she took her characters through the silly “oh that is so stinkin’ cute!” moments as children to the “holy crap my panties just caught on fire!” moments when they were finally giving in to the feelings that had ensnared them over their years together. We face Chloe’s doubts and insecurities over losing her best friend if they were to become more, and Noah’s feelings of devotion but with the uncertainty of what his feelings will mean to the girl he’s always put first in his life and his heart. Gah! I absolutely love these two!!

    There were countless beautiful moments in this story that just made me melt, right up to the very last sentence that brought tears to my eyes. Chloe and Noah shared one of those mesmerizing and breathtaking love stories that I just love to get lost in, and I never wanted to pull myself away from it. Becky Wicks will leave you smiling, crying, and wishing that you had a childhood BFF that could come even close to being for you what Noah was for Chloe!


    My parents came looking for me twenty minutes later, but by then he’d taught me the C chord and Noah Lockton had strummed his way irrevocably into my heart. ~Loc 105

    I remember the walls closing in, the heat of the summer on his skin, the way his shirt was open like a tent around me as he leaned over my body. My sundress was rising around my thighs. I was screaming inside for him to kiss me, but at the same time I knew he shouldn’t. We weren’t Peter and Wendy, we were Noah and Chloe. We were best friends, forever. We were everything. ~Loc 958

    I watched her from the bed and wrote a song in my head about how she lit up every time the lightning struck, and when she climbed in beside me she was wriggling under my skin as much as the covers. Chloe became the lightning then, for me at least, lighting up every room. And so began the storm in my head. ~Loc 1743

    ‘I see it in Noah, the way he looks at you. Chloe, I’ve seen that look in a man’s eyes. It’s more than desire for your body. It’s the secret world you’ve built together in spite of all of this – that’s what he can’t lose. You’re his normality. You’re a part of him, and he is a part of you. That’s what makes this frightening, but that’s what makes it right. ~Loc 2672

    5.0 von 5 Sternen The ultimate summer beach read! 28. Mai 2014
    Von Rosilla - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This book was a departure from the normal genre I would read, but having read Becky Wicks travel diaries (and loving them) I thought it would be worth a go. And I wasn't disappointed. I rattled through this fab book in about 2 days and it made me late for work twice! In switching genre, Becky has maintained her ability to grip the reader and leave them always wanting to know what happens next. The story is a take on the classic 'will they/won't they' of friends who may be more, but set against a very current backdrop of reality TV music shows, social media and stardom. This book should be number one on your holiday reading list this summer.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Loved this Book! 27. Mai 2014
    Von Reading Fanatic - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The excerpt below, lets you know you're in for one heck of a ride throughout this story, and Becky Wicks delivers. From beginning to end, I couldn't put the book down. She managed to rip my heart out and make me feel everything I never wanted to feel or face about things that happened in my own life. Emotional, raw, gritty, heart wrenching and powerful. These are words I would use to describe, Before He Was Famous.

    "I guess she knows it, even if you don't," he whispers.

    "I do," I say, and inside I'm screaming.

    We're not doing this; we're not. This is dangerous. But he climbed in next to me and now it's the strongest, aching urge to keep him here, to have him holding me again and to never let me go.

    This book makes me think about the journey that married contestants who entered American Idol, and the first one that comes to mind is Daughtry. A part of me wondered what his wife went through during his journey and what happened between then and now...that he's famous.

    This story is about Noah and Chloe, though. When it's meant to be, there's nothing in this world that can tear two people apart if they love each other hard enough. The sad part is I could relate to this book. I found myself understanding Chloe's need to keep pushing Noah away. The pain of letting someone inside completely, only to have it ripped away, is a pain worse than death, and can't even be described in words.

    A brilliant love story. An emotional roller coaster. A deep look inside. Before He Was Famous will wrap you up in knots and won't let you go until the end.

    "It's already quarter past midnight
    But I don't really want to move from my chair
    If I leave, will you hear me still singing this song
    Will you wish I was there?
    I want to hear one more of your stories
    Tangle up in your dreams, give up the fight
    'Pour one more glass of that wine
    And I might not go home tonight..."
