Loved loved loved this book!
It's no secret that I tend to gravitate to the books that have kick ass women and hot guys... Band members at that!
Riley is a great drummer, skate boards, dresses, acts, and shows no fear. She makes no apologizes to anyone. It's refreshing to have an author write a story about a strong woman and not have her be this homely lookin girl. And on the flip side she is forever loyal to her family and does anything to help them out.
Romeo Oh Romeo. And doing another 180, the author introduces you to Romeo who from all outside appearances is this hot womanizing jerk. Then Jean Haus pulls back his layers and you find yourself only wishing that this guy lives next door to you.
Riley had to give up so much of herself to stay at home and take care of her mom and sister because of her parents divorce was heartbreaking. Only to have her try and find something to help give herself a little peace so she tried out for a band. Romeo not wanting any part of her in his band. Not explaining himself he made it a point to try to get her to quit. Riley being as determined as she is wasn't going to let that happen. And that's when the fireworks begin....
I really enjoyed the little insight at the end where the author showed Romeos POV during Riley's band audition. Wow!
Jean Haus did a wonderful job in telling this tale. From the first page I was hooked. The characters were woven together and kept you invested.

Who wouldn't want to be an awesome drummer and in the band with 3 hot guys? Well, Riley wouldn't, that's who. At least at first. Riley is a great drummer, had a scholarship to a great college to play for their marching band, but decides at the last minute that due to family issues she can't go away. So she makes a huge sacrifice for her mom and sister and stays home. But this means that she no longer has the life she dreamed of, and isn't playing in her new college's marching band. Her friends convince her to try out for a local alternative rock band, as their drummer. It's not what she wants, but she finally realizes it's a chance for her to play the drums, one of the only things that still makes her feel free and happy. Her status as a hot girl drummer effects the guys in the band, without her really knowing it. Two of the band members (Sam and Justin) are flirty with her, but she knows she doesn't want it to go anywhere with them. And the one member in the band that she does feel attracted to (Romeo) is hell bent on making her quit the band. Riley is determined not to quit, but problems at home are increasing, and things with Romeo are finally heating up... I loved the attraction between Riley and Romeo, the way her friends cared for her, and especially how strong Riley was while dealing with everything in her life. I don't regret purchasing In the Band and hope that Jean Haus writes a sequel or maybe a book from Romeo's POV.

In the Band by Jean Haus has definitely taken its spot on my list of favorite New Adult novels. A story about a girl joining a band full of hot guys, especially the hot but frustrating guitar player Romeo? Yeah. Who doesn't want to read about that?

More times than not, in books like this one, I end up disliking the main character within the first few pages. For some reason, they always seem like the same down-and-out, sarcastic, defensive girl who can't let anyone get close to her. That is so not the case with Riley. She's real, low key, honest and funny. And I connected to her immediately.

Riley feels guilt about her family's problems, things that have nothing to do with her. She cooks, cleans, takes care of her sister, all while her mother sinks further into depression. And Riley is the one who is left feeling guilty for wanting to "waste time" in a band or with a boy. I felt such sympathy for Riley, I felt an understanding for why she felt the way she did, but I also had some frustration because Riley was the only member of her family to act like an adult and step up to the plate, even though none of it was her fault or problem. I kept wishing she'd realize that everyone else needed to deal with there own issues and just give everyone the finger and ditch out on them all. But, of course, Riley being the loving, caring daughter that she is would never do something like that.

Then there's the guitar god known as Romeo. I'm telling you, this book is a swoon-fest and it's all Romeo's fault. This boy definitely lives up to his name. The heat between him and Riley sizzles right off the page. Sure, Romeo's character seems like a bit of wish fulfillment, but he is still slightly flawed (in a way that makes him even more attractive).

This is one of the sweetest, funniest, most amazing books I have read yet! The story centers around a young girl who loves playing the drums and after giving up her scholarship to play for a school and a major drumline joins a local band to help her family. Once she joins the band she starts to realize she is attracted to the bands guitarist. He treats her like sh¡t but she is determined to stick it out until she discovers he isn't such a jerk after all.

I can't even begin to express my feelings about this book. I was in the marching band as a drummer when I was in high school and I could absolutely identify with Riley. Being so in love with an instrument and not being able to play it is very hard to get over especially when it's all you've got. Like riley my mom was raising me alone and my drums kept me company. Riley has to balance her home life with her school and music then Romeo comes into the picture and shakes up her world.

It has some tough moments that had my heart breaking to pieces for both Riley and Romeo but once you get past the hard stuff, you get rewarded with a beautiful conclusion.

I thought Sleeping Handsome was my favorite of hers but she blew my mind with this book! Bringing back beautiful wonderful memories of my childhood was only one bonus of reading this book, the next best bonus was the steamy romance bits we see between some of the characters! I love when a book doesn't get TOO in depth with the saucy stuff but is descriptive enough to make you want to fan yourself! That is when you know you have a good author on your hands! They can draw the emotion out of you instead of just laying it all out there!

This is a gem to read and I know I will be rereading it again and again in the future!
