This book wasn't as cute as the first one in the series, but there was still enough cuteness that I enjoyed it. The romance happened really fast and I didn't buy into it as much as I would've liked to, but as I said, there was still cuteness. It read a little more like a less graphic NA than a YA read. I enjoyed the banter between Ryder and Mia and between Ryder and Miles. I enjoyed Ryder's sarcastic sense of humor a lot and that we got a little more insight into the rest of the band.
This was probably closer to 2.5 stars, but I'm rounding it up to 3 because I thought it ended well. I really liked Trevin in the first two books and was looking forward to his POV, but I actually liked him a lot less in this one. I also thought both Miles and Ryder were portrayed as big jerks for most of the book, even though they were both supposed to be nicer after the events of the previous books. Daisy drove me crazy almost the whole time. She was way, way too overdramatic and very petty. There was a big thing with her mom that is revealed towards the end of the story and I thought the mom got off way too easily. I did like Daisy's developing relationship with her father and there were a few cute moments throughout to make me smile. This was my least favorite book of the series.
Though it took me a bit to get into this, I ended up really liking Matt and Anya. Though it happened a little fast, their romance was cute. I also liked that it had a little more serious subjects - homelessness, drug addiction - but still stayed a cute contemporary. I thought the other band members were represented well, which I appreciated. One thing that bugged me, though, was that there seemed to be some consistency issues. We never find out exactly when Will and Matt switched places. There were comments made in two of the three preceding books that made it seem like it's been going on for awhile, but I thought this book made it out that it was more recent.
This one was So Cute! Though it was a little instalove-y, I really shipped Nathan and Abby. Nathan was so sweet and he's probably my new favorite boy bander. I thought the rest of the band was really well represented and loved all the scenes of them together. There is a big thing to happen with the whole LJ (band manager) as a villain arc that has been going on through the whole series that I wish we would've gotten to see, but overall it was a good ending to the series.
Overall Rating (out of 5): 3.5 Stars
Ryder turned so Miles could see his shiny eyes. "You should probably collect these in a bottle. They're rare, like unicorns."
Miles sighed. "Since you won't let me touch you, I want to let you know I am mentally hugging you right now."
Ryder's shoulders fell. "I'm mentally allowing you to."
