Following an unexpected decision to give up her college percussion scholarship and stay close to home, drummer Riley Middleton joins a local up-and-coming rock band. As the sole female band member, Riley must contend with flirtations from two band members and a decidedly cold shoulder from guitarist Romeo. As Riley delves deeper into the band, she realizes that there’s more to Romeo than meets the eye. If only the band had a no fraternization rule…
I adored this book. I fell in love with Romeo: his protective nature, his business savvy side, his rock star god persona. I felt for Riley: her fierce love for her little sister, concern for her depressed mother, and antagonizing relationship with her father and his girlfriend. Between Romeo and Riley’s intense chemistry, what worked for me is just how mature they were in handling situations. They communicated with each other, gave each other space when needed, and their relationship grew organically for me that by end of the novel I was rooting for them to make it. Hoping for a sequel, that’s how much I appreciated this book.
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
