Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, I really enjoyed the first book, and the prequel one but this one – it was good, but not great. It just didn’t pull me on the same way, didn’t feel the drama of that early one.
Tara, I liked her, and when she first met Hector after working online with him, and chatting for so long it was magic. I really wanted things to go well between them, and at first it did. Then – due to mixed communications, to misunderstandings it all went wrong….
It had a great premise, I recall Hector from the first book, and liked him then. It was easy to see how he felt about Tara, and meeting them at the comic-con was perfect. I loved the way Hector got irritated when people asked questions about the band, and not about the book. He was so protective of Tara and he was very genuine in wanting her to be up there with him, for the focus to be on her writing, and not his recent band fame. He’s felt Jared took over things with the band when there was publicity, and it annoyed him that he seemed to be all the focus, and he was certainly not going to let Tara feel that way. That was so real, and made me understand him and want him and Tara to work. They really were a perfect pairing. Then her ex comes along, wants to try again and …..more problems. That was such a – hair pulling – time, when I was so frustrated with Hector. Poor Tara felt so rejected, was so upset even though she suspected he was acting out of character from the things he said – it didn’t stop it hurting though and I was hurt along with her.
Overall though I knew things would work out – I need to feel there’s a real chance they won’t, and somehow that didn’t happen here. The barriers to them getting together just felt like minor hiccups, simple things easily resolved and I need a bit more. Its a good read, one I enjoyed but not a five star one or more than a one off for me.

Stars: Three and a half. A little too predictable for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
