I read the first 80% in one day but got so emotional (crying!) I had to finish it today. In case it isn't clear....I LOVED IT. While I do not like cliffhangers, I did love the story up til then.
Tad and his band are, for a nice change, a bunch of older rockers in their 40's and so is the woman who falls for Tad (39). Their romance is very different in that it was a year of texting and Skype after only one face to face meeting. Shelby was a fan of Tad's and unbeknownst to Shelby, Tad was a fan of hers too. Shelby is a well-known wildlife photographer. Their meeting is fate.
In spite of Tad's daughter's dislike of her, Shelby tries to befriend her but isn't successful. Tad's son, True, likes her very much!
All I can do is encourage you all to read this book. It has well rounded characters as well as an enjoyable story!
The author did a great job of her character descriptors and swirl of character emotions. All believable, no ambiguity here.... vivid protags.
Tad and Shelby’s friends to lovers connection was convincing even though I was annoyed by Shelby’s constant show of self-doubt. Finally, her handling of Honor’s disrespect had to happen.... I was cheering for her, time she took control! I can’t say enough how much of a perfect H Tad is, flaws and all but I was left heartbroken over Theo. I loved how the story ended, now I can’t wait to start ‘All Fired Up’, see how theirs and new relationships Pan out.
Highest recommendations for my rockstar girls and I can't wait to dig into the next book in this series!
PS - I know who Tad is based on, but I have been wracking my brain since the first chapter trying to figure out who Jesse was inspired by!
I found Shelby and Tad's romance trajectory very interesting. They meet at the concert, have an intense 20 minute conversation and vibe on each but don't meet again in person until a year later. During that Tad is on a world tour and Shelby is off to Africa and points east on various assignments. They had exchanged phone numbers and after a nicely and realistically awkward start, they get into texting and skyping and learning about each other in that one year period. The author walks us through as they build a rather intimate relationship without either one of them actually doing or saying anything romantic or inappropriate. We see that they are very much wanting more, but the two of them are a little more shy about revealing it to each other. So they build a close, personal friendship that blossoms (again realistically and a little awkwardly when they finally reconnect in person) into a romance.
I liked that Shelby and Tad were older. And I like that Tad was a really decent guy. Their maturity was on the page. I am glad the author allowed them to act like they'd lived a bit and had some experience in how to be and how not to be. Nothing would have pissed me off more if this had been a pair of 40 year olds acting like 20 somethings. I also liked that the story made time to show us both Shelby and Tad's work.
Even so they do have some hurdles. Tad is a rock-star with a rock-star past and Shelby has to become comfortable with that life and trust him. He has an ex wife that made him gun-shy with long term commitments and two teenaged children who make him realize he needs to learn how to make room for Shelby in his life and theirs. So there are bumps and arguments and small misunderstandings and the fear of two people who've waited awhile to find their soul mate.
There are some well drawn supporting characters, mainly Tad's bandmates and his brother Theo and Shelby's BFF. But this is primarily Tad and Shelby's story.
Good book, I look forward to seeing what else this author has.
