This is another tale of LJ threatening a band member, separating them to manipulate and, in effect, blackmail them into adhering to his commands. And I felt a little disappointed that we did get to see his execution. I SAT THROUGH FIVE BOOKS FOR IT.
Any woo, the story has a relatively straightforward but credible plot with enough twists in it to keep the reader interested. It is well written giving further insights into backstage life for young people in similar situations. This story was bit dull compared to the others. I didn’t really feel like there was a climax or blow out. There was sneaking around, forbidden kisses, and a grand gesture of epic proportions. Same as the last four books.
HOWEVER!! She didn’t run! Abby stuck it out. And I admire that. Abby wanted to split but she stood. FINALLY a lead female stood.
Every bit of this book is cute fluffy material. There were things that I wasn't overly excited about, but other than that… perfect for Christmas. This story was quick to getting started and I loved that. What makes the book interesting is that it involves a boyband and a lucky fan. Nathan, aside from Ryder, is probably my favorite member of the band. He's charming, sweet and awesome kind of guy. He met Abby accidentally and that moment was pure… imperfect perfection.
Abby. I loved her character and she felt so real. I loved that about her. I could easily connect with her. She was famous in her own way, being famous on YouTube, but she didn't act all pompous. She was just herself and I found that to be so wonderful. You didn't see her act like she was better than anyone. She was so easy-going and I just really loved her.
I will say it again, if you like One Direction or other boy bands at all, this series is for you!
