Whenever I get a request for a blog tour, I usually just cringe. I get so many of them that I just can't accept them all. But when Brandee sends me one that has Ginger Voight's name in it, I cannot sign up fast enough. When I first heard of Ginger, I was skeptical. I'd read the THOUGHTLESS series and thought Kellan was pretty much a rock God. Then I read THE MIGHTY STORM, and thought, hmmm... Rock stars! So when GROUPIE sorta fell into my hands, I devoured it. Andy's and Vanni's story was heartstopping for three books. Ginger doesn't sugar coat her characters, they're all flawed, but so aren't we. Andy is a curvy woman who is not a size 1. Vanni's could be stereotyped to want only stick-thin models, but he's not. Oh yes, he hooks up with them, but it's Andy who's captured his heart.

In UNSTOPPABLE, we have another curvy woman who is making waves in the music industry. Jordi Hemphill may not have won FIERCE; but she captured the hearts of the viewers and is becoming a star in her own right. But her life is beyond happy. She's in love with one person, yet married to another. And she's only 19! 

Jordi is on a downward spiral. Her song of choice should be HURT by NIN. She makes decisions that aren't smart, but being blackmailed by your husband isn't exactly conducive to having a happy life. From starving herself, to injuring herself from working too hard. Jordi is a mess. The only person who really 'gets' her is Vanni. He's taken a liking to Jordi and is mentoring her and trying to teach her that her beauty goes beyond what the people see on the outside, it's what is inside that matters.

Ah, let's go back to that blackmail... Her husband Eddie has an incriminating sex tape of Jordi and FIERCE winner Jace Riga. So in order for Eddie to keep her in line, he uses that every chance he gets. Of course, he's very abusive to Jordi and usually shoves it in Jace's face. Now, Jordi and Jace, as two misfits, are totally in love with each other. Jordi doesn't feel she's worthy of Jace because he's gorgeous, women throw themselves at him and the third runner-up, Shelby is also pining for him. Trying to keep a facade in front of everyone is wearing on Jordi and threatening her health. Eddie doesn't care. All he cares is that he gets her money and can bed a hot, stick-thin model-type.

Ginger pulls you through all of Jordi's emotions and your heart breaks for her when she realizes that she has to set Jace free. No matter how many times he tells her she's worth it, she doesn't believe it herself. Of course, now that Vanni has taken her under his wing (with the approval of Andy), the gossip sites make it seem as if they're having an affair. Vanni tells her to ignore it. 

How is she supposed to ignore things when she's falling apart internally? With an explosive ending that I never saw coming, I was thrilled with how things ended. I'm in need of EPIC like yesterday. I have NO idea how Jordi's story will come to a close; but I will miss this world that Ginger has created. I hope she doesn't completely leave it. I absolutely recommend this series and the GROUPIE series. So good and totally worth it.

Ginger Voight is 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, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, FIERCE 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.
