"This debut novel by Sian Ceinwen is a cleverly constructed love story. It pairs an album song list and the band's music performed live on stage during their concert with Ariana's memories of life on the road with the band. This pairing shows how sometimes even when true love is involved it can be painful, messy, and beautifully complicated." - Daena, Goodreads
"I'm not normally one for romantic novels, finding them too soppy and predictable. Fortunately I didn't realize this was a romance, otherwise I would have missed out on reading a book I thoroughly enjoyed and found so hard to put down...the best book I have read for a long time, and the second book in the series can't come quick enough." - Maureen, Goodreads
"I loved this book! As soon as I read the description, I was hooked and I confess I literally read it cover to cover in one sitting. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!" - Jodi, Goodreads

Rock star romance is my thing I've read a lot of them. Ariana, omg 49% and she still has the sameinsecurity, Gabe's done everything to reassure her she's it, he loves her but every single page just about ... I'm not good for him, I could hurt him, I can't live with celebrity. I'll try to continue but if the rest of the book is the same I'm out. I don't think she's worthy of him and that I want her to redeem herself at this point because the whining is off the charts a downer, too repetitive. There's no growth here, stuck on the same emotion page after page, day after day, week after week! One sided, him giving his all always, Ari constantly negative and doubting=boring and a weak hero IMO.
I want to like this, love it really because of reading during the pandemic in NY but it's brutal. If I finish it hopefully I can come back with a higher star rating.👍🙏👊
The author stated that she started this book as a past-time and let her friend read it. After a bit of pestering from said friend, she finished it and put it out there. So, it is a bit amateurish and could benefit from some professional editing, but over all it's a good first book. I give the first half one-star because of Ariana's snowflakiness and histrionucs. I give the second half 4 stars for bringing a train wreck back from the edge of the abyss!
The sequel (The Wedding) is pretty awesome, but the third installment (The Baby) is the best! You can see the author's steady improvement in her writing style, and she's incredibly generous -- she could have easily broken the last two installments into individual trilogies, but she gives you the entire story under one title! Brava!!!
Sian, if you're reading this, keep up the good work! I've read all three titles in a week (the last two being unputdownable and responsible for my lack of sleep!). I'm looking forward to the next installment of the Cruise Control universe!
Although it takes Gabriel several years to move on from Ariana, he finally does. And then she turns up at one of their concerts after winning a great concert package. She doesn't want the extras, going backstage, or meeting the band. She knows what it will mean. The songs broke her heart, but when Gabriel sees her, it will break his heart all over again. She doesn't want to hurt any of them anymore.
This story is filled with fun, love, lust, heartache, and pain. It will keep you reading just to find out what happens between Gabe and Ari. This is a first for me from this author and I can not wait to read the next in this series.
Somewhere between then and the halfway mark, I reached for a tissue. Not unusual. Emotions were running a little on the high side. At that point, I started falling in love with these unique characters. Then BOOM!*!* All of a sudden. I’m ugly crying and looking for a second box of tissue.
What a ride, indeed. Me telling you about the storyline and the characters could not convey the depth of the emotions and the color of the story that the author paints in vivid strokes.
This is a long-ish book with a rather abrupt ending, but good news! There is a sequel!
