I received an ebook of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Dani René!
I have to say that I have read rockstar romances in the past, and they never lived up to my expectations. I am so glad that this one did. This novel was complex, and beautiful. I believe that there are two things that made the book for me.
First, it was that René slipped some darkness into the story. That added darkness gave the story a certain honesty and aspect of reality. It made it raw and believable. It made it beautiful. To me, if there is no darkness, or hard aspect to a book, it just reads like a fairytale, and that is not real life.
The second thing that made the book for me, are the songs. It sounds freaking cheesy, I know, but when written songs in a novel are done well, written well, well placed, they really add a certain je ne sais quoi to the novel. René's lyrics were enchanting and musical, regardless of the the lacking melody when reading them. They connected directly to te story on a deeper level, and they complemented the story on an upper level - does that make sense? My brain at times.
So all this to say that this is a great rockstar book by one of my faves!
