Kim's Review:
This book is totally a Rock soap opera!

The cover art and description drew me in. I was not exactly sure what to expect.  What I got was a wild romp around Europe with a band. You have 5 band members, 2 best friends, and a quirky intern thrown together with an exasperated father/magazine owner, creepy band management staff and mean Roadies. So there was bound to be tension, fights, hook ups, angst, drama, romance, and fun.

Fury is a British band with 5 hot guys with very different personalities.
Scot the smart, sweet bass player
Phillip the obnoxious, misunderstood lead singer
Nathan the flirty, narcissistic keybardist
David the level headed drummer
Bret the mature, married lead guitarist with a son

Stephanie is outspoken and constantly embarrassing her father that owns The Sound Wave magazine. Cheyenne is her best friend who also writes for the magazine. Cheyenne is damaged by her past and it flows over into her present. She had a creed based on past experience: No Dating anyone in a band.

They are assigned to go on tour with Fury and write a groundbreaking article to introduce them to the American audience.

"...your fans hardly know anything about you. My article will deliver the personalities to go with the faces they have on their walls. Colorful personalities to say the least."

The book flows fast since there is so much going on. You are thrust into the mayhem of a tour with the varying personalities. The girls were sassy and sarcastic. The boys had sharp wits, could be quite charming, and also obnoxious.

A few of the lines that made me giggle:

"Not only am I going straight to hell, but I've got a first class ticket and a penthouse suite overlooking the lake of fire."

"Laundry day?" He asked looking her up and down. "Travel clothes. And you? Prince called,  he wants his suit back."

"He's so pretty," Steph sighed. "Too bad he was dropped on his head as a child."

The interactions among the characters could be sweet at times and very frustrating at others. I had my favorite couples picked out from the beginning and enjoyed seeing them fight, love, make up, struggle, fight and love some more. They had good chemistry and I was hoping they would find their way through the mess. There was quite a bit of immature behavior and angst, but totally believable since it is about a young band with strong personalities. Such naughty boys!

There was some mystery and intrigue with behind the scenes story lines interwoven throughout the book.

I did have some issues with how the authors allowed the main character Cheyenne to use poor judgment in several situations. The smoking and drinking seemed to be quite excessive too.

I liked that it had an epilogue to wrap up the story lines and that made me happy. It was a fast, fun read.
