In the Band


In the Band

Mature YA
Source: Kindle
 
by
When family problems push Riley Middleton into giving up a percussion scholarship in another state and attending college from home, her friends push her to try out for a local rock band. Of course, Riley makes the band. She rules at the drums.

Riley soon finds out rock bands have a different dynamic than marching bands, especially when each of her male band mates has a major ego and is a major player. Two of them relentlessly flirt with her. The other—a dark, sexy rock god she can’t help being attracted to— is a total jerk and pushes her to quit. She becomes determined to ignore his rudeness and his hotness. Even if she was interested in jerks, a hook up would probably get her booted out of the ego-ridden band, and playing keeps her sane. Behind the drums, the world and its troubles evaporate.

If she wants to stay in the band, Riley needs to ignore the growing sparks between her and her band enemy. But as she gets to know the man behind the stage persona, ignoring him proves to be more difficult than flowing through a time sig shift.

*New Adult/Mature YA for language and sexual situations.

My Review....

Again another Music/Band/Rock Star genre but in a Mature YA world.   I thought this book was adorable and heart felt.  It's a book about love and sacrifices.

Riley has given up so much for her family even her own happiness. When she decides to take back a bit for herself her world starts to change for the better especially with Romeo.   Now add that Riley is a kick ass drummer and in the band makes it a great story.

Romeo is hot and tortured in his own way but absolutely falls for Riley but has a hard time convincing her that she can have everything with the art of balance and give & take.

I also think that Romeo will be making an appearance on a book boyfriend Monday in the future.

I really liked this book is was a quick read with a good message and music how can it get any better.

4 drumming thumbs up!
