    This is one of my least favorite stories from J.M. Snyder. While the story flows nicely, it's difficult to like it when you dislike the main character so much. I think Adam is a pampous arrogant a**hole; and I don't understand why his band members would put up with his act and let him get away with it. He is selfish to say the least. Paol deserves someone way better than Adam. Even if in the end Adam says sorry to his band members and Paol, I don't feel like it's heartfelt apology. I think the r ...more

    The books I've read by this author have always had an edge that unsettled me. Maybe they didn't work completely for me, but they always made me feel. In this book I couldn't connect at all with one of the protagonists, Adam, the wannabe rockstar. I can buy the artist's ego, but he tramples on everyone's feelings, and I'm not sure he really learned his lesson at the end. I was rooting against him the whole time. The story is cute - artist/studio rep - but the first part was too slow and the last ...more

    Adam Blue is a little rockstar in the progress, he has not still the fame of a rockstar but for sure he has all the attitude. And he is not even so young, 23 years old are almost too much to still play of being an adult, but well, Adam is so cute that you forgive him almost everything.

    One thing for sure, even if he is not yet famous, Adam is convinced that success is right there, around the corner, and that he will reach it sooner than later. It’s almost cute to read him, 23 years old still liv

    My problem with this book is that the main character, Adam, isn't a likeable jerk. You know, the kind of character that's arrogant and obnoxious but perhaps using that as a shield for insecurity or other issues, and still has some charms. Adam is just a jerk. He's a jerk to his bandmates, Trace and Mike, always taking his own opinions and ideas about their music as superior to theirs, making decisions without consulting them or even going against their desires. He's a jerk to their single groupi ...more

    JM Snyder proves she can write vivid characters with complex motives. The plot felt fresh - driven by the inevitable conflict and tension between Adam and the world. But please - no more books in present tense.

    The "hero", Adam Blue is insecure and arrogant. Unemployed, still living with his parents at 23, dreaming of fame and fortune. Not much to recommend him. Some readers will prefer their heros nicer, better behaved, a few more social manners, a bit of maturity. Some will worry about whether

    This just didn't work for me. I got a little more than half way through before I stopped reading. Adam is just not very likeable. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, as unlikeable characters can still be interesting and captivating. Adam is very one-dimensional and kind of boring.

    The book moved too slowly for me and couldn't hold my interest. Which is odd, because I usually like JM Snyder's stuff.
