Review—Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar by Rachel Higginson

Release Day- June 25, 2019

My name is Clover Calloway and I’ve lived two separate lives. 

The first, I like to call “my past.” I never talk about it. I try not to think about it. My rockstar days of playing in one of the hottest bands on the planet are over. Along with the most volatile, beautiful, tragic love story of all time. 

Over the past five years, I’ve settled into my second life. My “normal life.” The one where I work a normal job, hang out with normal people and fall in love with a normal, but wonderful guy. The life where I’m admittedly a little bored, but also safe. 

My past wasn’t boring. But my past broke my heart into a million, unfixable pieces. So, I’m determined to keep it where it belongs—behind me. 

And the man responsible for the shattering of me? Malachi Porter, lead singer and mastermind of Bright Tragedy, should stay there too. Far away from me and this idyllic life I’ve carved out for myself. 

But what happens when my two lives collide? 

When Malachi comes crashing into my perfectly normal world, he threatens to destroy it, promises to annihilate everything I’ve replaced him with. 

He upends everything I thought I wanted and forces me to question the reasons I left Bright Tragedy all those years ago. 

But I didn’t walk away five years ago, I ran. As fast as I could go. And while my heart is whispering that it’s different this time—that he’s different—my brain is screaming for me to run again. 

Malachi Porter isn’t a normal guy. And he doesn’t belong in my “normal life.” But, nevertheless, he’s 
bound and determined to make a place for himself here. 

I just hope my heart can survive him, that we don’t burn into another bright tragedy.


"Because I can’t live without you. I just can’t. And more than that,” he smiled, and it shook me to my core, “I don’t want to.”

I don’t know what it is about a Rachel Higginson novel, but they always leave me feeling giddy and in love. Never Fall in Love with a Rockstar actually had me feeling very anxious and sad for a good bunch of the book. Here we have Clover and Kai, two people who’ve loved each other their entire lives, but circumstances got in the way. They were lost from each other for five years. 

Then chance, fate, and kismet happens all at once—bringing with it the incredible love that two broken characters share. Right off the bat, we know something terrible happened for Clover to leave the rockstar life and live life as a normal human being. But life has something else in store for her. And his name is Malachi. 

I fell in love with this story very early on in the book. Had that connection we look for when trying to find our next read. I was rooting for Clo and Kai from the very first moment the two saw each other again. It was beautiful and at times all I could do was hold my breath. I fully recommend for those looking for a wonderful second chance romance that will pull at the heartstrings. 

“Tragedy made me leave. Fear kept me away. But this bright, bright love brought me back in the most beautiful way.”
