I was really sucked into the dynamic with all the guys in the first chapter. The brothers animosity with each other, especially about Jesse, and Tate being…well Tate. I have to admit I wasn’t really feeling Danica at first, I don’t know something about her just didn’t connect with me. I couldn’t really say exactly what it was, it just was….but I’m thinking it was being put off by doing what her agent wanted her to do. So when Danica and Alder met up again, she redeemed herself immediately with their conversation, especially at the beginning when she put Brave in his place. That moment had me back on board with her immediately. But telling Alder everything scored really high with me.
One thing I already figured was that this lifestyle of any kind of fame had to suck in a lot of ways and it didn’t take long to see that, yeah it wouldn’t be for me…ever. I wasn’t crazy about the arrangement that Cole and Sophie came up with for Danica. I don’t know it just seemed like selling yourself out a bit to me. It worked out great but for a minute there I saw bad things after what went down in that first audition. However even though I wanted to slap Jesse and Danica for being too nice to Brave, it did end up working out well.
Honestly this book had me all over the place. At times I wanted Alder and Danica to just run off together and say to hell with all of them, at times I wanted Alder and Jesse exclusive because they should have already had that chance, then I wanted them all 3 together, and at times I actually felt for Brave. But feeling for Brave was usually short lived and I wanted to junk punch him again. Brave did however finally get his sh!t together, he had to hit his lowest point with everyone but he finally did get it together. Oh and one thing that never changed I hated Cole, what an @sshole. I kind of suspected he might have something to do with Brave’s issue but I figured it was just me hating him, apparently he was just that big of an @sshole.
Anyway I could go on and on but I won’t because well that would tell you too much. I loved all of these guys by the end…the band members, the roadies, Danica, and hell even Sophie, who didn’t give me a great first impression, proved she cared about Danica more than money and fame. By the end you knew that they would all work through anything even with the struggles that the touring and their careers would no doubt continue to throw at them.
I think the best part was seeing Alder find himself through the troubles with Brave and having the most worthless parents, ever. It was also nice to see them all come together and be happy even during the craziness that surrounds them at times. I don’t know if Alder, Jesse, and Danica can be topped since they are so awesome but I will certainly be anxiously awaiting more about the rest of the band. All of these guys deserve what these 3 found. And yes that includes Brave, I got over wanting to junk punch him by the end.
Each character is complex and plays an integral role in the story. Brave is the lead singer of Winter's Wrath. He's one of those people who covers their own pain by causing as much of it in others as he can. He hurts every single member of the band at one point or another.
Alder is Brave's younger brother. Brave takes every chance he gets to put him down and make him feel worthless, as a band member and as a brother. Alder tries to be the peacemaker of the group but in the process he never gets to make his own wants and needs heard.
Jesse is a roadie who is an all around great guy. He's secretly in love with Alder but would never risk their friendship by acting on it. Instead, he thinks he loves Brave and tries to have a relationship with him. That's a disaster in the making, just wait and see. Brave uses Jesse like a doormat and Jesse lets him, thinking he's doing what Brave needs.
Danika is a model whose career intersects with the band's and she goes on tour with them. Alder and her are in the very beginning of a relationship that will be tested by living on a bus with the band. Especially since Brave is so determined not to let Alder have anything good in his life. My initial impression of Danika as someone who cared more for her career than anything else wasn't fair. She surprised me.
There are other important characters too, but it would take way too long to do a list and explanation of how they relate to the band and its history. It's Braves behavior that brings troubles to a head and the rest of the characters have to decide how they'll deal with it. Will they let him break them, like he always has? Or will they use the experience to grow as individuals, as lovers and as a band?
I loved this book and will definitely read more about Winter's Wrath when it comes!

Danica rather bland and flat character, too nice to identify with her.Read more
