Character development: 😍😕🙃🤩
The heroine: Gemma – an architect from Great Britain who is in Los Angeles for a project she is working on. She loves music but has never heard of Franco’s band Rook. Gemma meets Franco while she is ditching a boring blind date.
The Hero(es): Franco – he and his band are in Los Angeles recording their second album. His best friend and band mate Gus recently fell in love though Franco isn’t looking for love. He is very interested in Gemma when he meets her and they become good friends right away and more.
The Story: Franco and Gemma spend a lot of time together while they are both in Los Angeles though both of them know that it won’t be long before they each go their own way. Gemma will be returning to England and Franco will be going home to San Diego for a while to prepare to go on tour.
I liked the story and was surprised that I teared up when Kate “Bright side” was mentioned and the guys were reminiscing on the anniversary of her death. I read that book nearly three years ago and have probably read over 800 books since then, but that was one book that really stuck with me.
This was one book where the narration detracted from the book in my opinion. I really liked Franco in the previous books and liked him in this book. I love it when romance books are told from the Hero’s POV, which this one was. But the narrator sounded more like a school teacher than a hot drummer in a rock band that is covered in tattoo’s. I think I would have liked the book more if I had read it rather than listened to the audiobook.

I teared up, too, when they were all sitting around talking about Kate. Bummer that the narration wasn’t great. I read this one on kindle.
