From the moment she saw Shawn Scarlett perform at a school talent show, Kit Larson has loved two things: the guitar, and the gorgeous, green-eyed boy who inspired her to play. But one careless night in high school shatters her hope of ever being more than a notch on his bedpost.
Six years, two bands, and one mostly-mended heart later, Kit’s about to make her rock star dreams a reality as the new guitarist for Shawn’s band, The Last Ones to Know. He may not remember their reckless night together, but Kit has never forgotten… and she’s determined to make him eat his heart out.
The release of their new album means a month cooped up on a tour bus, sleeping inches away from the ridiculously sexy musician she’s never quite gotten over. And as Kit gets to know the real Shawn—not Shawn Scarlett, the rock god, the player—their attraction becomes too hot to resist. But the past is paved with secrets, and when they finally surface, Kit could lose everything: the band, the music, her dreams… and Shawn.
I love books where you get to revisit the people from your past, especially when you happened to be in love with the guy who is suddenly in your life full time. All kinds of fun stuff for me! I love musician books, I love the whole idea of being a musician, living on the road, working hard to make your dreams come true.
So Kit was head over heels in love with Shawn when she was a teenager, he’s even the reason why she picked up the guitar, and one night at a party she finally got the courage to go up and talk to him, and they had one night together, leaving her with a broken heart and his twin brother with a serious hatred for the guy. Fast forward a couple of years and she is trying out for their band, only it seems like Shawn has something against her. I liked Kit, she was definitely a girl I would be friends with. She has great style, she’s confident in her talent, and she isn’t afraid to go after her dreams. I also really loved her family dynamic, I can’t imagine growing up with that many overprotective brothers, it’s no wonder she keeps her new band gig a secret from them.
Now as for Shawn, I really thought I was going to dislike him a lot more than I did, considering how his first interaction with Kit went. But honestly the situation was understandable, and they were young, people do stupid stuff when they are young, I know I did. But when we fast forward to the present, I have to admit I was a little annoyed at how evasive he seemed about Kit, like he was pissed at her for just being around. I liked how their friendship started to evolve though, at first it was very friendship like and then it started moving into something more than that. I loved their dynamic, and how they could make each other laugh and just seemed to genuinely work well together. Also when he met the family for the first time, let me just say that whole scene was awesome, it was both intense and funny all at once.
This book was such a fun read for me, it had everything I want in a new adult book, humor, great chemistry, hot musicians, and great family dynamics. If you like new adult books I would check this book out.
