When family problems push Riley Middleton into giving up a percussion scholarship in another state and attending college from home, her friends push her to try out for a local rock band. Of course, Riley makes the band. She rules at the drums.
Riley soon finds out rock bands have a different dynamic than marching bands, especially when each of her male band mates has a major ego and is a major player. Two of them relentlessly flirt with her. The other—a dark, sexy rock god she can’t help being attracted to— is a total jerk and pushes her to quit. She becomes determined to ignore his rudeness and his hotness. Even if she was interested in jerks, a hook up would probably get her booted out of the ego-ridden band, and playing keeps her sane. Behind the drums, the world and its troubles evaporate.
If she wants to stay in the band, Riley needs to ignore the growing sparks between her and her band enemy. But as she gets to know the man behind the stage persona, ignoring him proves to be more difficult than flowing through a time sig shift.

Holy… This is just awesome. I don’t even know what to say… *thinks hard* Hmmmm… I’ll just go and enumerate why I like this book a lot.
One… MUSIC. I’ve been looking for a story with music in it. I’m getting hooked with books that has that kind of genre. I like music, who doesn’t? I always wanted to learn to play guitar. Always bugged my bf to teach me how. But never got to learn it really well cause I’m not patient. :P
Two… Drummer… I keep on mentioning that I really like drummers. I really have a thing with drummers. Although in this case, it’s a girl who played the drums and she totally ROCKED it. It makes me love drummers more. I’ve been having that dream where I’ll buy that Drum Mania machine for my house and so I could play drums there. LOL. :P
Three… Guitarist. also known as Romeo. OMG. He’s a bit dark and brooding, jerk (a bit), sweet, perfectionist, slave driver, HOT, talented and boy genius. Damn. What more could you ask for?
Overall, yes, I love it. Even the issues with Riley’s mom and family. :)
