ARC Review: Too Many Reasons by Kristen Strassel
Spotlight Series, Book 2
Expected publication: February 9th 2015
Abby Gauthier is close to getting everything she’s worked so hard for. The band she manages, Sinister Riot, has been offered a major record contract. But it comes with a catch: the band must add Eli Jamison, winner of the talent show The Spotlight, to the lineup.
Devon Sinclair is the singer of Sinister Riot, and he’s Abby’s best friend. She’s in love with him, but fears she’ll lose him if she makes the first move. Devon knows adding Eli to the band is a mistake, and he’s right. Eli’s interested in more than just making an album. He wants to take control of the band, and he wants to get to know Abby better. A lot better. When tensions between Devon and Eli threaten to destroy Sinister Riot, Abby must act on her true feelings or lose everything she’s ever wanted.
Life, Love and Rock-N-Roll!
Abby and Devon have a very unique relationship. A friendship started many years ago. To the average outsider, they are the perfect couple. To those in their inner circle, wonder why they do what they do to each other. He is her dream man. She is the one he falls on, always. They are closer than close. Rising through the ranks of the trying to make it rock and roll world, tests the bounds of this tighter than knots friendship. Or is it really more.
Rockstar drama, sexual tension and great characters light up the pages of Too Many Reasons. This is a character driven story with a plot that kept me guessing. Abby and Devon made me love and want to smack each of them in turn. I felt like Too Many Reasons was a down to earth, real life rocker story. I love that music was a big focus of the story, along with the crazy romance. Well done, Kristen Strassel!
