About the Author
C. J. Anthony grew up watching soap operas and reading piles of books. She attributes her love of reading and romance to her mother who not only taught her to read but also made countless trips to the library lugging those piles of books home for her to read. It wasn’t a far jump to start writing her own stories, early childhood tales about flower families and travelling to the moon with her best friend.

C. J.’s favorite stories to read and write include “opposites attract” pairings—couples who might appear to be an odd couple to the rest of the world, but to each other fit together perfectly, finding their own happy ever after with a little hard work and a whole lot of love.

Not surprisingly, C. J. is a big lover of rom coms—she’ll gladly take Julia Roberts standing in front of Hugh Grant asking him to love her, over car crashes and shoot-em up movies any day. She also watches way too much TV and every singing reality show there is. She loves music and musicians of all genres and attending live concerts.

She spends most of her time juggling a day job and a commute and freelance design work on the side and falling asleep on her couch, dreaming of a day when she can work all day in her pajamas while living in a house by the beach.

Just hours before Brandon Harris is supposed to head home to Cincinnati for a Labor Day family picnic, his boss at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame forces him into giving a private tour to bratty British pop-rock star Lucas Black. Before he knows it, he finds himself swept up in a whirlwind road trip through Ohio with Lucas riding shotgun. 

Lucas grabs hold of this wild opportunity to run away—even for a few precious days—from the gilded cage that is his carefully managed life. He's just looking for a little fun and freedom as a normal person. From roller coasters to a college football game, Brandon begins to see the real Lucas Black buried under the famous persona. But by the time he and Lucas discover their mutual attraction, they only have one night left before both of them have to go back to their real lives. The fun is over...unless Lucas can run away for real this time and keep their adventure going.

A fun, short, Rock Star romance
(Updated: May 10, 2017)
C.J. Anthony is a new-to-me author and one I'd certainly read again. Runaway Rock Star is the type of short story that you can read in a few hours, be totally absorbed, and finally close it with a smile on your face. It's actually a perfect holiday read. 

Brandon Harris is working as an assistant in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It's not the job he dreamed of when he got his business degree, but at least his work is connected to the music industry. His dream of working for a record label, or managing a group, is on the back burner for now but he enjoys his job nonetheless. When the curator shuts down the building one hour early, to give a famously spoilt and bratty pop star a tour, Brandon is less than enthusiastic. He doesn't even like the guys music and his reputation leaves much to be desired. 

Lucas Black is the apparently spoilt Rock Star, looking for some quiet time at the museum before his evening concert. Meeting the refreshingly honest Brandon gives Lucas a taste of a normal life away from the fans and his father/manager. He enjoys their time together and, surprisingly, so does Brandon. When Brandon mentions a trip home to his family in Cincinnati Lucas starts plotting. Unbeknown to Brandon, Lucas' invitation to his concert that night is really an opportunity for Lucas to join him for a weekend escape. In the course of the weekend Lucas drags Brandon on an adventure around Ohio, and a connection is made that neither of them expected. 

Runaway Rock Star is a thoroughly entertaining, light, read. It is a sweet, slow burn, romance with an unexpected HEA. There was humour, there was a great connection and chemistry between the MC's, and there was a very satisfying conclusion. I would have liked an epilogue but this book certainly lends itself to a sequel and perhaps that's what the author has in mind. I'd love to read more about these two characters as they begin their journey together. 
Overall a very satisfying read.
