    Great book!

    I wasn't sure about a story about Gabriel (Scotty) going into this one, but, I don't know why I would ever doubt the terrific Kristen Callihan. This book was great. I loved Gabriel and this book was so much better than Idol. I loved everything about it!

    Managed

    I absolutely love this book! I think Gabriel is awesome even if he can be a bit prickly, and Sophie is adorable in a quirky way. I love these characters! 😘

    Couldn't put it down

    I loved the description of the characters. I could clearly see them in my head. The story line was such that I did not want to put the book down. I was so eager to know what the characters were up to. I hope there will be more books in this story. I want to hear how the whole band finally finds love!

    I loved the banter between Sophie and Gabriel and

    I loved the banter between Sophie and Gabriel and how witty and fiery the dialogue was. I found myself laughing out loud for most of the dialogue. I mean, seriously, how freakin' fun is this: "I’ve never met a person I couldn’t manage,” comes his tight reply a few seconds later. Not bothering to take the mask off, I extend a hand his way. “Sophie Elizabeth Darling.” Sophie, our heroine, is sassy and opinionated and friendly. She's pretty stoked when she finds herself somehow upgraded to First Class on an international flight for a job interview. Until she meets her seatmate, Gabriel. Gabriel "Scottie" Scott is gruff and grumpy and cold, and people do what he wants them to. He's fearless... Or is he? ;) After verbally sparring with one another for the entire flight, they learn that they're sort of stuck with each other for awhile longer. And poor Brit Gabriel discovers that the cure to all that ails him is, for some reason, this overly chatty American cuddling up beside him. This is basically a "forced close proximity" romance, and it's a lot of fun. I couldn't help but like Gabriel, in particular, and how quickly we see beneath his grouchy exterior. How can you not be a fan of a guy who loves Buffy and is Team Spike? :) "Angel is a teen girl’s dream, all sad sighs and mental angst. Spike is for when she grows up and realizes satisfaction is hers for the taking.” That all said, I did have some issues with this that kept it from a higher star rating. One is a bit minor, but still sort of got to me - Sophie is supposed to be American and even asks what certain British-isms mean, but refers to things like "cling film" rather than "plastic/saran wrap". Others that were a bit more serious was the tone of things around the time Sophie first meets the band and Killian and how that entire thing was handled. It felt melodramatic and a bit jarring to me, though I think it would have made more sense if I had read the first book and was already familiar with the shared past Sophie has with them. After that part was over, everything took a turn back up and I really enjoyed the camaraderie that developed between Sophie, Brenna and the rest of the Kill John band and crew. After about 65% though, things sort of got muddled and bogged down again with what felt surprisingly overly dramatic again, with a grand gesture at the end that fell a bit flat & clichéd for me. Which was a bit of a bummer because I so loved these two together and the ways that they accidentally fell in love and opened themselves up! Despite those things, this was a really lovely read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys laughter (who doesn't?), sexy with bits of dirty and characters that are far from perfect but you love them anyway. I received an ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This is no way influenced my review. My opinion is my own.
