What did I think? I'll do a proper review when I'm not visiting family but I have been DYING for people to read this story. I was lucky enough to beta for Elizabeth Daniels and I have been so eager for this story to be released.
I'm not usually a fan of band stories, but I fell in love with these boys. If UST is something you like in a story the this is the one for you. It is so hot at times. SO HOT. It has everything I love in a story, great characters, a good storyline and beautiful writing.
I will review properly soon but just know I loved this story.
Okay, so I'm back and ready to tell you all exactly what I loved about this story.
Firstly, I would say that Elizabeth took the prompt and delivered, whilst making the story completely her own. Her characters are wonderful (Chuck, *growls*) and they each shine in their own light.
For the umpteenth time since he met Tate Newman, Declan thought about how screwed he was and how much he was starting not to care.
The two MC's are Declan and Tate, and I can't remember a time when I wanted two people to get together more. From day one the need and want they have for each other is evident. It's just there, bubbling under the surface and boy was this apparent in the writing.
Band stories are so not my thing, I'm not that interested in music and famous/wealthy MC's generally do nothing for me...with this book though I totally made an exception. I read it to help a friend with her story - I stayed because I could not walk away from these characters. I think it's because in this book passion is evident. The passion of the writer for her characters, the passion of the characters for what they're doing and who they are. The passion of a story that needs to be told.
Declan annoyed me at times - he really did. I mean, talk about bullheaded...yet, I understood him. I could see why he was making the decisions he did. Even when it came to there being a (view spoiler) I could deal with it. It was there for a reason - the character's reason and not just to get from A-B in the story. ED took another trope I dislike and turned it on it's head.
The UST..yep, I mentioned it before, but I need to mention it again. It was hot. If UST is something you like then you need to read this story...the pay-off is SO worth it. (view spoiler)
I don't want to get all spoilery so I'm stopping there...of course I couldn't not mention the beautiful cover, another amazing one from the talented Natasha Snow. The retro record cover vibe is just perfect for this story, and showcases artist and writer working together inordinately well.
Just one last reminder - Chuck is MINE. So hands off!
Chuck swallowed and nodded. “Got it, boss. Only be the bad boy in private.”
*growls* Yes Chuck, that's right!
