It’s all so perfect that at first, Lily wills herself to ignore the emerging red flags. As her worries about Dylan increase, she finds friendship and comfort in his brother and bandmate, Thomas. But Lily soon discovers that as much as Thomas cares for his brother, he’s also fallen hard for her.
As Dylan spirals further out of control, Lily must decide what she really wants, and whom she is willing to hurt.
Read an Excerpt
I turned and saw that Dylan was staring at me. He leaned in slowly, placed his hands on my cheeks, and pulled me in for the kiss. His lips brushed against mine lightly at first, then relaxed into the kiss slowly. It was a polite kiss, the kind where I could tell he was holding back. Dylan ended the kiss before I was ready, while my entire body still ached to taste him. He’d offered me just enough to convince me that our chemistry wasn’t limited to conversation. His hands dropped from my cheeks, and he squeezed my hand in his. I blinked and tried to control my breathing.
“You’re terrible,” I finally mumbled, smiling.
He grinned in response.
“I mean, really. A sunset walk on the beach, a kiss at the top of the ferris wheel... So cliché.”
“And you love it,” he said.
“I do,” I admitted, glad he hadn’t taken my statement as an insult. I loved romance, and there was no denying that certain things were romantic. There was obviously a reason they became clichés.
“Are you hungry?” he asked when we deboarded.
“I could eat. What did you have in mind?”
He glanced around. “Hot dog and cotton candy?”
I laughed. Leave it to the wealthiest guy I’d ever dated to buy me an amusement park hotdog on our first date. “Works for me,” I said.
My review: Lily Mitchell could not believe that she ran into her favorite lead singer in the middle of a pouring rain. Surprisingly, she has a pleasant and docile conversation when the two first meet. What’s even more shocking was that she turned him down for a date. She simply didn’t date musicians.
Story maintained a steady pace with very little rhythm and fluctuation, but the writing was good and the concept was interesting. It’s definitely a romanticized version of the “star-struck rock band” story—lovely and lilting.
A pretty good read.
My rating: 3 stars
