Publisher's Summary

English edition.

This book will take us behind the scenes of her stardom and inside the music business. Jenni Rivera, a gentle woman often filled with doubt. A spiritual woman who lived in faith. A woman who gave of herself deeply to the community. A woman who wanted nothing more than to be loved, but who could find it only onstage. Told through Pete Salgado's and Gabriel Vazquez's perspectives; both were Jenn's managers, and they share stories about the life of Dolores that no one knew and did not see onstage....

Just like the series!

Interesting read and one fascinating woman. It gives you the true definition of who Jenni was, private and publicly. Wish things would have turned out differently for the people who worked closest with her.

Get to meet the real Jenni as a person!

Meet Dolores as the woman she was, not Jenni as the singer or Jenni the Riveras want to portrait her. but Jenni Dolores as who she really was as person! it also answers some of the questions/doubts/speculations that surrounds Jenni. I highly recommend it!!

Breathtaking Story

I have always wondered the true story behind the career of this amazing woman. This book is so genuine, raw, intense, passionate, powerful and astonishing. Of all the books that have been written about Jenni Rivera. This is the one I was looking forward too reading.

Anyone that reads this book will see the writer wrote it with admiration, love, and respect. I personally appreciate Pete for writing and sharing his truth.

As a fan this book was an eye opener and my level of admiration has grown for this woman and her entire work family. We the fans made her a success, but her work family (staff) were the foundation of her career. After reading this book you will achieve a realization and understanding that their hard work and dedication as a united working family is what achieved Jenni's triumph.
