Summary from Goodreads:
One guy, one girl. One in the spotlight. One in the shadows.
Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton – the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine – she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?
The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends
who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other?
A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social media gone very, very wrong
“A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another they will fall for each other, maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.” – Dave Matthews Band
First of all, that quote is really great and I think that it really fits the book.
So this book is about Chloe Campbell and her best friend Noah Lockton. Noah joined and won a competition named Show Us What U’ve Got. After he won, obviously, he will be doing some shows and even a tour. Chloe, his best friend agreed that she will be with Noah on his tour as an exclusive blogger for some New York Magazine. So she will be close to him almost all the time and shell write articles about him.
As I started reading the first few chapters of the book I’m kinda confused about what’s happening because there are a lot of things going on and many characters showed up and introduced all at once. I even have some issues with it, but as the story goes on, luckily, the issues that I’m talking about start to be fixed.
What I like in this book is the sequence of events that takes place and also Noah’s dialogue. It’s just that every time Noah says something that kind involve magical things it always reminds me of Peter Pan and I LOVE Peter Pan.
It’s not just Noah, who’s saying those pixie dust, words but I just love it and the author made a good choice using it. ❤
Give it a go guys! 🙂
