My review for
5 out of 5 stars
I read this book in 2 days. It was that good.
Now this story is told from two points of views. Tommy Fortune and Cassandra.
We meet Cassandra who is a waitress but an inspiring Artist. She sells freelance art to help make ends meet with her waitress job. Her best friend Maya works with her and they both love High Road Divide a rock pop band. So when Cassandra wins two tickets for their concert, it would seem luck is finally starting to happen for her.
Tommy just wanting to get away just got the evening with no more planes. Is told he would find some peace and quiet, not many people would recognize him at a restaurant.
It’s there where Tommy and Cassandra’s lives change.
Tommy who has never really believed in love, falls for Cassandra who treats him like any other person. Cassandra thinking since Tommy is a rock star who only wants a great time with whomever doesn’t want to trust him or her feelings for him.
But as she takes a trip with him, she learns way more about herself and taking chances. Can Cassandra trust Tommy and his feelings and find her dream? Will Tommy give in to self doubt and believe whatever rumors?
I really wish this book would be a series or even just another book. I really enjoyed these characters and the background characters of the band and Cassandra’s best friend Maya.

First off I read this book in 5 hours.
I could not put it down. I read all night.
I love this book and I’m wishing there will be more. These characters were so awesome.
Kiki is the main character, she has self doubts and never thinks highly of herself. Her best friend Beth isn’t really a great friend at all. When Kiki gets accepted into Krause a college that has a music program. A summer camp they have for students. Beth doesn’t get accepted, so in turn she sabotages Their friendship. Making Kiki doubt herself even more. But at camp she becomes herself she meets new people and becomes friends with them. They like her for her. Kiki tried to shed her tv fanatic self from the “cool” kids.
Its there she finds love and heartbreak and friendships. Brie and Kendra and Norman and Andy, Seth and then there is Jack. Each having something that they want to change about themselves. Not wanting to give everything away. But wow I love this character. She’s into tv shows and such and a great character.
Kiki’s whole life is about tv and movies, not thinking she’s good enough for anything or anyone. This book is about learning about yourself and maybe taking a chance on things you normally wouldn’t.
