    More rock star romance than romantic comedy

    I’ve been highly anticipating this release for a couple months now after Miss Halle shared the great cover and teased that it would be more of a romantic comedy along the lines of Smut. I loved Smut, was intrigued with the idea of a husband and wife writing team, and am always up for a good rock star romance, so it was a no-brainer for me to sign up to review this title. I think having specific expectations ended up being the downfall for this book for me. I expected comedy, and I never was left clutching my sides or even laughing out loud. Though there were humorous moments here and there, I wouldn’t label this as a romantic comedy if I described it to friends. It’s more of a straight rockstar contemporary romance with a moderate amount of angst. I did like the premise of the plot. The heroine, Lael, is the daughter of a record label executive. She also loves to play the bass guitar and has dreams of playing with her longtime favorite band. Brad is the frontman to said band and when she joins the band as their interim bass player for a tour across the US, their attraction leads to a fast-paced but deep romance. I liked these two together, there wasn’t internal drama between them, they seemed to be and stay on the same page throughout the book, and they were very honest about their feelings for one another. Despite their easy match, I can’t say I got to know either character really well. I’m not sure if it was the pace, the dual first person narratives, or just the style and tone of the book, but I felt distanced from the characters rather than pulled into the story. I did really enjoy all the musician aspects of the story. There were just enough technical details that you could feel the passion Lael and Brad have for their music and it made the rock music part of the plot interesting. I just wished I got to know the main characters a little better or felt more invested in their story, and I really wish I hadn’t gone in expecting a romantic comedy. Perhaps if I was simply expecting a contemporary rock romance, I might not have felt as disconnected or as though something was missing. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
