Let Me Be The One, A Drawn To The Rhythm Romance 4, Christa Maurice
I’ve read and enjoyed books one and three in this series, missed book two somehow so I knew some of the characters here and the background to the small town where much of the action takes place. I was kind of puzzled though, and had to stop at about halfway as I’d thought this was about Suzi and Brian getting together, and so much of it covers the past, interacting with Brian but when she’s still with Logan. Once I’d checked this was the right book I continued and in time it all drew together.
I loved Suzi, Brian was a gem, a true friend and its easy to see why she fell for him and he for her, but at first they’re both with others. I enjoyed seeing the other band members, and kind of felt for Logan – he was a jerk, he was awful to her but he sort of felt like a lost boy, not really knowing what he wanted, he loved Suzi but needed affirmation the others wanted him, and let the fans go too far, much too far. Of course she’d get upset, who wouldn’t, and yet he just couldn’t seem to work that out. When things go south – and that part came right at the beginning I so felt for her….for anyone in that situation it must be devastating, and when you’re famous nothing is private.
Its a story I enjoyed, well written, great characters and yet..I wanted less Suzi and Logan and more Suzi and Brian. I felt like the last quarter of the book was what I expected three quarters of it to be. That the final getting together and ending felt rushed. Still, that’s just me, it’s a fun read, lots of emotions and drama and a beautiful ending.
Stars: Three, a good read but I really wanted more Brian and less Logan
