Anyone that knows me knows that I love rock star romances. So when I found myself with no ARCs to read and some unexpected free reading time, I couldn't resist the draw of this.

Maddie was my type of girl. She was shy and loved music. And she was so real. She wasn't a complete klutz (which is often popular) and she wasn't model perfection personified either. She was real. She was awkward with Jared (who was beyond hot) and a good friend and yes, a little klutzy at times (we all are) but there was no tripping over perfectly flat surfaces. Her first performances had me cracking up. Mostly because I could totally picture myself in those situations and the events happening to me.

I thought Jared was beyond dreamy. First of all, he's a hot musician. Second, he's got tattoos. Third, he's also a geek that liked comic books and Comic Con. And he wanted Maddie. Because the book was only Maddie's POV, you only got hints that Jared was interested in her. But those hints were oh so good. And I loved the connection and friendship that Maddie and Fared built before they became a couple.

I was both intrigued and unsure about the reality show competition that the story took place within. But I actually really enjoyed it. It was a great reason for Maddie and Jared to spend every day together. Plus it provided a little intrigue. My only complaint regarding this part of the book was the eventual culprit of the suspicious activity that was going on. I thought the resolution was a little too easy. I thought it was someone specifically and while I was wrong, I wasn't satisfied with the real culprit either. But honestly, it's not a huge issue and it didn't take away from the story.

I can't wait to see the books for the other guys of the group. And I'm hoping that Maddie's friends will get books too. I'm not ready to say goodbye to these characters yet.
