Summary

Netflix news! The 44 Chapters About 4 Men series is being adapted into a steamy Netflix dramedy series called Sex/Life, coming soon!

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. Star is Hans' book - a whirlwind rock star romance based on true events.

In 1999, I met my Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was mine. I knew it the moment he flashed me that shy, dimpled smile.

And he knew it, too.

Hansel "Hans" Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about me on the other. Unlike the losers of my past, Hans showered me with tenderness, took me places I'd never been before, and showed me the type of all-consuming love I'd thought only existed in fairy tales.
 

But, like any good fairy tale, my road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when I least expected it...it forked.
 

In 1999, I met my Prince Charming.
 

In 2000, I met my soul mate.

Star is book three in the 44 Chapters About 4 Men spin-off series but can be listened to as a complete stand-alone.

Brilliant!

As BB falls for Hans who’s sweet and loving, she’s sure she’s found her Prince Charming.
I love how BB’s growing as a person and knows she deserves to be treated better. It’s a brilliant series that had me laughing, crying, and loving every word of it!

LOVED IT!!

Whaaaat???!! This is absolutely brilliant!! My first BB Easton book and I need to read the others - like, NOW! I can't believe that this is based on her actual life! My life in comparison is a complete borefest!! Lol!

I felt all the emotions with this book. Laughter, joy, sadness and tears - it's got them all. Hans is just completely adorable and proves to BB that there are good men out there. Especially after the way she's been treated in the past. He's a complete breath of fresh air, and that's exactly what she needs.

Ramona Master was the perfect choice for the audiobook. I could really picture the scenes in my head, and I just disappeared into BB's world.

Bravo BB Easton! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I can't wait for the next in the series ‘Suit’. So excited for Ken!!

5 dazzling stars!

5 amazing stars!

You know that feeling when you’ve finished a book and you’re almost hyperventilating at how amazing it was. That’s how I’m feeling about Star by BB Easton.

This book was just everything! And the fact that it was pretty much her life in 1999/2000 makes me want to become her best friend! I actually went into this book not knowing it was about BB until I started it but I think it was the most real thing I've ever read.

It was funny, angsty, the sex-holy crap the sex-was off the charts. The writing was incredible and every word was amazing. BB told an incredible and honest story, one I won't forget for a long time. I listened to this on audio and the narrator was incredible.

I need to listen to the rest of the 44 Chapter books RIGHT NOW! I usually hate going backwards in a series but I need more and I've already dived into 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir.

4.5 Rock Star Stars

⭐⭐⭐⭐🌠 Rock Star Stars

Well this book was a complete surprise, one minute i was laughing my head off, then my heart was in my mouth, and then i was sobbing!

BB takes a story about her and lets you take a glimpse inside what it is like to fall in love with a Rock Star, the good times, and inevitably, the bad.

She is very honest in her stories and this makes her very relatable as we've all been a 17 year old in love.

And in those 17 years this woman has had to put up with some sh*tty times, she was in an abusive relationship with what can only be described as a nutter.

Then she meets Hans Oppenheimer, and all of the feelings of first love come flooding in, the butterflies, the giddyness, the swooning!

Hans managed to make a beaten down girl into a strong independant woman, and even though her love didn't last with him, she states at the beginning of the book that she will always be grateful to him because of this.

I love her secondary characters, and Trip was such a lovable weirdo, although i googled Bukkake porn, and i will never be the same again 😱😱

🎧🎧 Narration was done by Romana Master and was fab, she really made a funny quirky character come to life.

Thank you BB for the opportunity to read such a fabulous book.

Incredible Journey

This is not the typical rockstar romance, but a life story. I was really surprised by it being based on the author's own life. The book is well written and the narration fits it. I really liked parts of the book, and other parts not so much. Some of the characters were very endearing and others were not. I enjoyed hearing the incredible journey that BB took. The epilogue was a wonderful conclusion to her journey of love and perfect ending. This book is part of a series that has four men who made a lasting impression on BB. Each book is a standalone listen.

Take this journey!

When I started this book, I didn't know what to expect! I thought, this will be great, a rockstar romance! But then the disclaimer from the author stating the events are based on her life put the book in a whole new perspective for me. Hans and BB, what a couple! Hans is the man, just too good to be true! There is so much going on, getting the band going, women throwing themselves at him, trying to keep his life together and working on a relationship with the woman he loves that it can be overwhelming. For the most part, I loved him, always the doting boyfriend and saying the right things. BB soaked it all in, Hans was giving her just what she needed, giving her self worth confidence. There were times BB drove me crazy, the way she handled her jealousy was just too much, but I do think maturity has a lot to do with it. I could see how as the book progressed, there were changes in both characters and BB was beginning to see herself differently. This is definitely not your typical rock star romance, it encompasses some humor, past abusive relationships, drug abuse, PTSD, and getting to know yourself. I think the book is a lot of fun and does take you on the band tour, but fills in the behind the scenes story. A good listen!

Ramona Master is perfect for this narration.Her voice has that new adult sound giving BB the ability to grow from high school graduate to graduate school. I enjoyed her male voices too, and she had quite a few to do. From Hans to Knight, she is able to give them each a voice so you know exactly who is speaking. I will watch for more by her.

Wow

This is such a great book. I was laughing all the way through. My hubs kicked me out the living room for laughing too loudly!! I wouldn’t listen to it in public as you will be looking like a nutter laughing and snickering so much.

Fantastic Story & Narration 🎧 Fresh & Original!

BB Easton delivers another delightful and heartfelt story. I love her way with words, she tells this story like a real life drama, oh wait it kind of is, a fictionalized version of a real life drama. BB works her magic on the pages and Ramona Master works her magic bringing the story and the characters to life right off those pages. This is my second BB Easton book, I am working my way thru her novels, backwards, I started with the 4th book Suit, it was great to see how she first meets Ken. You also get some more insight on Knight. This is BB and Hans’ story and what a story it is, Hans was complicated, he had his issues but he and BB were awesome together, until they weren’t. I loved how much BB came into her own in this book, loved her mother’s talk and words of wisdom near the end. I highly recommend this book, it is an adventurous ride with plenty of humor, drama, heartfelt moments and some hot ones too. BB Easton, thank you for another greatly entertaining story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Ramona Master is a talented narrator and voice performer. She gives each character their own voice and personality, it is like she becomes the character. You can hear how much heart she puts into her work, she projects the emotions of the characters into her performance as well as the drama of the story, she perfectly captures the humor too. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen 🎧

So Good!!

I absolutely loved listening to this book. It was so well done it felt like BB herself was talking to us. I had not read Hans's story yet so this made me love this even more. I am definitely going to go back and listen to the other books in the 44 Chapters about 4 Men series. This is one not to miss..an amazing, funny, sweet, tragic, brutally honest , one of a kind series,

Full of BB's special brand of charm

After four books to set the tone for her sarcasm and wit, I'm quite the fan of Mrs. Easton's work. It's going to be interesting to read Ken's book and find out how she changed her type of guy. Although, he seems like a really great guy from the glimpse we got of him in this book.

I absolutely loved it

STAR was another phenomenal read in this 44 Chapters about 4 Men spin off series. Here we get Hans and BB's story and what a story it was. Love, romance, comedy, heartbreak and alot of growing up all appeared in this book. You will be taken on a roller-coaster ride of emotions as you go on this journey with them. I can't wait for Ken's story.
Listening to the audible version of this novel, it felt like the story was made for Ramona Masters to narrate. She was just perfect throughout the book. Her portrayal of the characters had me so hooked I could not stop listening. I absolutely loved this page-turner and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

I'm on a BB Easton high right now!

Okay so I took 24hrs to come down from my B.B. high before writing this review because first of all oh. My. God. Her dedication?

“Thank you, Hans. Your love broke the spell...”

Already a f*ckin’ page turner, which I’m not surprised because duh! It’s B.B. Easton and her work is f*ckin’ magic sooo, suck on that! Anyways, to my review before I pass out from egg dye and vinegar...

STAR is the 3rd (well 4th if you count the prequel 44 Chapters About 4 Men...okay maybe it’s really the 4th?), okay 4th installment in the 4 Men series by the ever so f*ckin’ awesome B.B. Easton (I’ll never stop saying that btw), and she introduces us to the dreamy, rock star, prince of swoon, bassist of Phantom Limb, Hans. Insert drooling face.

Now if you are caught up to what B.B. has been through (if you haven’t STOP! Gtfo! Go pick up 44 Chapters About 4 Men OR hell, pick up SKIN, before continuing this review!!!) then we’ve survived her ‘skinhead’ ex Knight, who can’t seem to let B.B. go and her recent pothead ‘arms dealer’ ex Harley, who’s, although apologetic, being arrested as poor B.B. is laying in the hospital bed.

Fast forward; physically she’s healed and well, mentally and emotionally getting there, and that’s when she meets Hans, the rock star who seems to have casted some magical soul mate kinda spell on B.B. and so our love for STAR is born and B.B. gets what she’s deserves after having to deal with two exes that left her battered and bruised, and that’s to feel loved!

It was like the honeymoon phase...until it wasn’t. Insert scrunched face, and glassy eyes. Ugh! I want her to be loved for crying out loud! It wasn’t until part 3 that I realized, wow. Although not her soul mate, Hans opened B.B. up and showed her what she’s worth, maybe not in the way we hoped but in his own rock star way; he wrote a song about her! Duh! Still super cute and swoon worthy but no dice. Our B.B. deserves more damn it! Alas, bitter sweet and perfect because move the f*ck over Hans, motha f*ckin Ken Easton is about to show us how it’s done! Cue badass music that Ken enters the room to.

So in STAR, we see B.B. come into her own person while she’s healing mentally and emotionally. There’s a maturity to her actions now, some sort of acceptance of the situations she’s in. Her talk with her mother opened her eyes to what the real world entails and although she’s an adult now, there more room to grow and that it’s okay to have these feelings and failed relationships as long as B.B. knows her worth and is truly happy.

She’s still B.B.; humor, attitude, punky, raw emotion and all! I feel like I’m on this adventure of self discovery when I read B.B. stories and I don’t want it to stop! But of course, like all amazing things, it’ll come to an end eventually and boy, am I excited (and sad) for this ending because motha f*ckin Ken! Oh did I know mention Ken’s appearance in STAR? Oops! Sorry not sorry, you’ll just have to pick up STAR and find out. Five big a** STARs for another page turner from B.B. Easton. Happy Reading!

So full of crazy awesomeness.

I want to be BB's best friend. The wild and crazy is just so addicting.
