*I was provided with a eARC of this book by the publisher via NetGalley, but my review is all my own opinion and thoughts*
“Scarlett Stiles is desperate for a change of scenery after her older brother, Liam, dies of a drug overdose. But spending the summer with her grandfather wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Luckily, Scarlett finds something to keep her busy–a local rock band looking for a guitarist. Even though playing guitar has been hard since Liam died, Scarlett can’t pass on an opportunity like this, and she can’t take her eyes off the band’s hot lead singer either. Is real happiness just around the corner? Or will she always be haunted by her brother’s death?”
This is going to be a mini review because I DNF’ed this book. Not really because it was so bad, but it just wasn’t for me. From the 30% I had read I knew what was going to happen and I wasn’t really interested in continuing. I had tried to continue reading it because it isn’t that long, but every time I picked it up it felt more like a chore and something I would enjoy, and that is not the way I would like to feel when I am reading a book. I did read the last chapter and it confirmed what I thought would happen.
I did like that music was used to connect people and that it was a thing Scarlet had shared with her brother. Music was also used for her to meet the guy she would fall in love with. I myself are a big fan of music, so I could appreciate it.
The thing I didn’t really like was the fact that the story was so predictable and the main character annoyed me. She was constantly thinking about herself and being negative. Other than these things, I don’t have anything more to say, I did only read 30%
I do have a question for you guys. I had receive this book via Netgalley, so how do you feel about DNFing a book you have received for review?
