|Taylor Marsten looks like a guy.
How was I supposed to know there was a woman hiding beneath her baseball hat and baggy clothes? I piss off the stubborn roadie one time, and she starts a prank war. Back and forth we go using public humiliation as a weapon. Our situation turns complicated when I find myself searching her out. I want to piss her off just to receive retaliation. I get off on her attention.
Our prank war isn’t a war at all. It’s foreplay.
Ethan Crow is an idiot.
He insults the way I look, demands I fill his bed with willing groupies, and threatens to have me fired from the tour. He thinks because I’m only eighteen I’ll crumble under his rock star authority, but he ticked off the wrong roadie. What starts as a battle feels more like a dance, and with thousands of women within Ethan’s reach, he only reaches for me.
Are his feelings for me genuine, or has he managed to pull off the cruelest prank of them all?
|Let me start this by saying I am truly a fan of Ms. Salsbury’s writing style .
I love most of her books and the way she draws the deep insights into the minds of the characters.
As a reader that has the deepest “feelings” for the most complicated , damaged and broken characters my first and forever love when it comes to her books will be “Split” – and I am pretty sure it will be impossible to write anything that will top this …
The Complicated characters were also what drew me in when it came to the Love, Hate, Rock-n-Roll Series. The books in this series can stand on their own but I would recommend reading them in order. Within this series my love goes to Jesse and Ben – their stories were incredible but their / this level of complicated is difficult to maintain and copy to the other characters in that series.
Therefore Taylor and Ethan had a lot of work to accomplish to draw me in. I loved the setting – obviously as it fits seamlessly into the world of the previous books and it was great to “see” the characters again that I already liked so much.
Also, the chemistry between Taylor and Ethan was great with all their banter and their pranks. And I think it’s the first time ever that I read about a female roadie which is a nice change and I loved the way her work was displayed and her struggles in a male world were shown. Taylor was a great character and she fits perfectly with all the other girls in that series.
I know you can sense a “But” coming and here it is … I was surprised to find that I was struggling with Ethan. I am not sure why but for some reason I was missing the final spark with him. It was as if something tiny was missing to ignite the fire. I somehow could not get the feeling for him as I did with the previous characters of that series. And I could not even tell you the reason for that. #Sigh
Not connecting to one character is fully my personal problem and while it results into only 4 instead of 5 stars for this book here but it changes nothing when it comes to the fact that Ms. Salsbury is an incredible author and I will pick up a book from her when I like the blurb at any given time.
