"When Andy Foster met the sexy front man of an up-and-coming rock band, the most she could imagine was a steamy stolen night of passion. But her attraction to Giovanni Carnevale hit her like a bolt of lightning. Soon she was traipsing all over the country, an unintentional groupie, finding herself thrust into his path even when she knew it was a very bad idea. Over four years their romance would encounter indiscretions, crazed stalkers and the interloping paparazzi, keeping these star-crossed lovers circling around a happily ever after they can never quite catch.

In author Ginger Voight's beloved "Groupie" trilogy, three books explore the passionate and angst-driven tale of Andy and Vanni. The third and final book, "Mogul," picks up the emotional roller-coaster begun in "Groupie" and "Rock Star." The saga that began with that first meeting in Philadelphia races to an explosive conclusion on the opposite coast, as Andy and Vanni are on the verge of getting everything they ever wanted. Everything blows literally to pieces, forcing Vanni - and Graham - to risk it all for the sake of love.

This is your backstage pass to find out why readers, reviewers and bloggers have fallen for a love story that was never supposed to happen."

In Mogul, Author Ginger Voight turns up the scandals, secrets, passion and heartbreak to 11. Flawed characters face excess and all the pitfalls that entails. 

Disclaimer: This series features a hero you might find you love to hate, a heroine you may want to slap, and frustrating triangles with dubious fidelity. Those who cannot abide "cheaters," who need their bad boys to be mostly good, or who must have a HEA at the end of each book, may be advised to look elsewhere.

Book One, Groupie:

(Click here for my review of Groupie on Goodreads)

Andy Foster never expected lightning to strike when she met the enigmatic front man of an up-and-coming rock band, but Giovanni Carnevale left her thunderstruck. At first it is easy to use her freelance writing career as an excuse to indulge the steamy flirtation from city to city. As she gets ever closer to making her lascivious fantasies a reality, however, she finds herself entangled in the fake and sometimes dangerous world of celebrity where nothing is as it seems, including the celebrities themselves.

She hangs on to find something real amidst the illusion, while Giovanni balances what he wants against what he fears most. Over three years they come together and blow apart with the same kind of combustible passion. This keeps them orbiting in the others' stratosphere despite new relationships and bitter betrayals. They are bound together by something they can't fight, something that draws the ire of another fan determined to claim Vanni all to herself.

Unknowingly they all race toward a dramatic moment of truth that will leave two people injured, and one dead, with a twist of an ending you may never see coming.


BLURB for 
Book Two, Rock Star:

(Click here for my review of Rock Star)

In the second book in the series, readers get insight into the mind of the romantic hero, Giovanni Carnevale, as he reaches the pinnacle of success as a worldwide rock star. Everyone wants a piece of him, but all he wants is the one thing he can't have. He's angry and he's entitled, with ample opportunity to make really bad decisions. The combination proves explosive.

Andy must watch from the sidelines as her beloved Vanni falls victim to grifters, scandals and alcoholism thanks to this self-destructive behavior. Things come to an emotional head when his estranged father comes on the scene just when Vanni thinks things can't get any worse.

Darkness shadows Graham Baxter as he begins his journey as a paraplegic. The powerful mogul bitterly handles this new vulnerability by lashing out at the people who could help him the most. He needs Andy more than ever, pulling her in yet another hopeless direction. Andy is put in the impossible situation of keeping the most important promise she has ever made, or saving the man that she can't help but love.


BLURB for 
Book Three, Mogul: 

(Scroll down for my review of Mogul)

In the final book of Ginger Voight's Groupie Trilogy, Andy and Vanni have returned to Los Angeles to happily prepare for the birth of their child. A reformed Ladies' Man, Giovanni Carnevale now embarks on a fairy tale life of monogamy with the woman he loves, but the ghosts of his past still continue to haunt their new found happiness.

The Wilke family wants to see him pay for the damage he has done to their precious Baylee, who still lies in a vegetative state. For her brother, Donny, money will never be enough to make up for what Vanni has done, but that is where the Wilke family first seeks their revenge. They demand millions of dollars in restitution, which forces Vanni to reevaluate his career path and participation in his band, Dreaming in Blue.

To ensure he has enough money to make up for his mistakes as well as provide for his baby, Vanni takes on the job as judge for a new reality talent show called "Fierce." Here he champions an unlikely contestant, proving to his detractors that he truly is a man of substance - more than anyone could have imagined. This includes producer Graham Baxter.

Graham tries to move on, but when he discovers that Andy is pregnant he cannot stop dreaming of what might have been. Maggie watches on helplessly, as hopelessly in love with him as he is with someone else. She considers moving on before he shatters what is left of her heart. It takes a couple of matchmakers (and a fairy godfather named Jorge) from "Love Plus One" to show Graham a side of Maggie he's never seen before. 

The biggest threat to Vanni and Andy's Happily Ever After is grifter Holly Neal, who returns to Los Angeles claiming to carry Vanni's baby. Graham and Andy suspect she is up to her old tricks, but Vanni knows truly turning over a new leaf means he has to do right by all the people he has wronged - including a child he may have conceived with another woman.

In the end, it is Andy and their baby who may pay the biggest price of all for his sins, when Baylee's unexpected death finally sends her psychotic brother over the edge.

Everything blows literally to pieces, forcing Vanni - and Graham - to risk it all for the sake of love.

Author Ginger Voight continues her popular GROUPIE saga with book three, amping up Rubenesque romance with steamy sensuality, and pulling the curtains off of celebrity royalty.


About the author:

Ginger Voight is a prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.

Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.

Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, GROUPIE and PICTURE POSTCARDS.

Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.

Book Review

What an extreme emotional ride Ginger Voight has put me through.
However, the journey (and wait) was well worth it. I remember how I felt reading the first book, Groupie, and how it took me by surprise with all its angst and topsy-turvy plot that had me screaming at the end. 

Mogul is  the story of Vanni and Andy and the aftermath that follows the news of an unexpected, yet, much wanted pregnancy. Maybe now things will smooth out for these two troubled lovers.

Ah, nope.

Ginger heaps on a crazed ex-lover who is ALSO pregnant with Vanni's baby, a ex-manager determined to bring Vanni to his knees, and an ex-lover who cannot stop thinking about what might have been. 

Oh, and a crazed maniac who wants to ruin Vanni by any means necessary. 

Seriously, there is A LOT of crazy in this book--it made my freakin' head spin. But all the drama, the angst, makes this book an addictive, absorbing read. These two characters have been through it all and I am so glad the turmoil is over. **Wipes sweat off brow** 

My favorite parts of the book involve Vanni and his personal growth--as a man, as a professional, as a friend. He has learned the hard way just how much his past actions have hurt those around him. And he is able to mend the damaged relationship with his father. 

If angst is your thing, along with a healthy dose of one sexy rock star who makes you swoon, then you should put this trilogy on your must read list.
