***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***

This was my first book by author Charlotte Casey, but it will not be my last!! I will be reading more of her books (hopefully sooner, rather than later)! Her books are fun, exciting, and have a great plot to them. The reader becomes instantly involved in the characters lives and they become instant friends! The reader wants to know more, while at the same time they don’t want the story to end.

I rated this book a 4 star read instead of a 5 star for a few reasons. The first being that Aveline and Greer have been talking/emailing/texting for years BUT she never realizes that he is the bassist of her “favorite” band? I couldn’t get behind that in the book. First, his name is unique, if it were her favorite band, wouldn’t she have known who he was? The plot focuses on this a lot throughout reading that Greer wanted someone who didn’t know him or his fame and it didn’t work for me.

The characters were compelling. They grabbed the readers attention and held it. The reader couldn’t help but feel for Aveline and her mom and they could relate to Greer even if he was in a band and support rich. The author did a great job of endearing them to the readers. The secondary characters also play a huge role in the story. The reader loves how selfless Rob is, how the band loves Nix and how they are truly a group of friends that have become family.

The story flows quickly and the reader becomes engrossed in the plot and doesn’t want to stop reading. The reader is on the edge of their seat wondering what is going to happen next while at the same time trying to predict how the story will go. This is a good book that should be added to your TBR list. Sit back and enjoy!
