Story Overview:
Franco Genovese is the drummer for world-renowned American rock band Rook. He's got it all. A killer smile. Tattoos. Talent. Razor-sharp wit and humor. And a heart as big, and generous, as they come. Life is good. Steady. Uncomplicated. Just the way he likes things. Until one night at an unassuming L.A. bar changes everything.
Enter Gemma Hendricks. She's a successful young architect from Northern England with an adorable smile, sarcasm for days, and an unparalleled trusting heart. The attraction is instant. So is their friendship. It's also temporary because they'll both be heading home, thousands of miles apart from each other, in a few days. Or is it?
There's something Gemma wants more than anything else. And when Franco propositions her to provide what she's looking for, everything changes. Will it transform friendship into love, or will it be their ruin?
My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.25

I've adored this whole series and this book was no exception. Franco and Gemma meet by chance when she's in the states for a few weeks and a friends with benefits develops. While they both develop deep feelings for one another, they have very different lives...her in Britain, him throughout the world as he goes on tour with the band. So, they agree to be friends, good friends. 

I liked them together so much. Gemma is incredible. She's just so straightforward and honest about what she wants. I love her for that. Then there's Franco and just how much he really likes this girl, although he can't see how they can work out. 

And in between it all is the band and Gus. I loved getting to see him again and his irreverent view of life. He and Franco are so awesome friends bound by so much. 

Everything about this entire series is fantastic! I highly recommend this book and the first two in the series, too. You can read any of them as a standalone, but I don't think you should. Everyone needs to know Kate (Bright Side) to understand these guys and how they approach life. I love ALL these characters so much. This world that Kim Holden has created is just amazing. I love it!!
