The writing style makes the reader feel so removed from the characters and action it’s hard to “live” in the story. Add in OM/OW POVs and I feel lost in who I’m rooting for.

While I am a FAN of 3rd person POV, if it can be done well, it wasn’t achieved here. 3rd person POV is so much harder to craft than 1st person POV. If the writer can’t connect the reader to the characters, no plot, no matter how good, will do that for them. And that brought my rating down a couple of stars.

Because of the PO

As the title suggests this story. There was lots of booze and drugs music and lies told. The story of Alik and Caro stated with both of them using false names. It was interesting to read how they ended up together. He even had a girl friend from hell. The story is about how they respond to the challenge and sparks.

Fantastic escapist fun. Hot chick lit with numerous interesting characters, some of whom are marmite - you either love them or hate them!

Julie has written a fantastic debut novel that's just perfect for your holiday, or chilling out at home with a glass of wine.

A wonderful introduction to a great series.

What a great debut novel. Being a retired semi pro groupie (only kidding) I was instantly attracted to this new release and I wasn't disappointed.
I could identify with so many of the characters and really got into the story. I was cheering on some and waiting for others to get their comeuppance.
The passion of the author is evident throughout the book and I was quickly drawn in to her world. Looking forward to the next one already.

Wanting one while dating another...being a man whore in front of the one you want...having a happy threesome because you lost the girl...NO

Ok I’m done, first this book bored me so I skipped a few chapters then became bored again....life is too short and I have other books to read

If you are looking for a fun and page-flipping read that has more grunge and depth than most, this is your book. With incredible characterization and great tension, the story will keep you on the edge of your seat at every twist and turn.

I had a difficult time with understanding the slang and "Britishisms" in the book. The book was overly emotional, angsty, and read like a soap opera. Not for me.

Even though a person didn't really read very much about him, I definitely liked Parker Roberts. I got a copy in exchange for an honest review.
