Kylie Stafford has spent her whole life doing exactly what’s expected. The right major, the right sorority, the right guys, just like her mother and her sister before her. But when everything falls apart for her, Kylie wonders if doing everything right has been utterly wrong. There’s only one way to find out.
She decides to try making all the wrong choices for three months. Hit on a tattoo-covered rock musician? Check. Go back to his dressing room for a hot hook-up against the wall? Gulp. Drop everything to be a roadie for him to binge on more of the best sex of her life? Maybe. Start falling for him despite her better judgment? Um….yeah. Figure out why doing everything that seems wrong feels so darn right?
It was truly serendipity when recent college graduate Kylie Stafford learned her internship had fallen through, her boyfriend dumped her and she decided to do the wrong thing for awhile, all on the same day. Rock star Cam Watson just happened to be in her path when she made that decision and he changed everything.
Kylie’s infectious personality is a bit captivating and she’s smart, resourceful and fun to be around. Her decision to tour with Cam’s band for the next month might seem impulsive but it was the best match for her love life and career. Don’t let her age fool you into thinking this is a typical New Adult offering…no drama and angst here.
There are some very strong themes that resonate in this story (following your own path, seizing the moment, knowing your own heart and mind) and they’re wrapped around Kylie and Cam in their romance and career choices. They make for some really heated moments (both the steamy and steamed) that spice up the story.
The band is pretty tame in comparison to others I’ve read but the vibe feels true. Cam is the leader and primary songwriter and Kylie certainly earns her role as his muse. This was a fun and flirty story grounded in serious issues and dilemmas. It’s short but isn’t rushed in its storytelling. I really enjoyed it and am curious as to what comes next.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
