It’s always fascinating to me how a person can be so strong, confident and together in one area of her life but ruled by fear and insecurity in another. That’s Lexie. She’s a smart, confident, compassionate woman who works as a nurse with oncology patients, but when it comes to relationships with men, her cheating ex and her mother (a victim of serial marriages) have taught her to not trust her own judgement. So when rock god Oliver Honeycutt enters her orbit, how can she begin to trust what she sees in his eyes and feels in her heart? Oliver has a full plate with family issues, fans and big decisions facing the band, but he sees something special in Lexie and is determined to figure out a way to convince her to give them a chance.
I never used to be a big rock star romance fan, but this book makes huge strides in winning me over. The plot is unique and tugged at my heart, and the characters are all amazing! It’s clear the author put a lot of thought into developing even the most peripheral character thoroughly before constructing the story. They’re complex, relatable, and larger than life so the reader feels like a part of the story and these people become as special as the reader’s best friends and favorite family members. Oliver, Bailey, and the other guys in the band will steal your heart. You’ll want Lexie to be the one to care for you if you’re ill, and everyone should have a best friend like Simone! Even the antagonists are amazing – so amazingly awful that you’ll want to reach through the screen and slap them, at the very least!
All the themes of love, and the nuances in the way they’re portrayed and play out, will fill your heart and leave you well satisfied. The author reminds us that there are many faces of love- romantic, parental, siblings, friends, caregivers, coworkers, band mates, and that it is these relationships that enrich our lives and make them worthwhile. She also shows how love and trust go hand in hand, and that some things in life are worth fighting for, whatever the cost.
This is my first work by this author and I can’t wait to read more from her! She has a masterful way of creating an environment with realistic, tough situations but interspersing humor and depth of feelings at just the right time to lighten your heart after the low it just experienced. It’s a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride (what great book isn’t?) but will leave your heart full and happy once the ride ends. This book is paradoxically sad and funny, painful and sweet, and heartbreaking and uplifting, and you won’t be able to put it down!
One facet of the story I really enjoyed was seeing how the author wove together Lexie's personal life, work relationships, and friendships around the central love story of Lexie and Oliver. This really made you feel like you had a window into Lexie's life. The story had me riveted from the first chapter and there were many nights I stayed up just to find out what happened next with Lexie. Will she find true love with Oliver or remain just a face in the crowd?
I found this to be a welcome addition despite taking place in a completely different setting.
Christina's ability to write believable and enjoyable dialog is one of the main reasons I enjoy her work. Not being a fan of elaborate and excessive descriptions of setting and milieu, I find her economy of words refreshing. There's nothing here that doesn't move the story along and focuses on the relationships between the many varied characters.
She sets herself up perfectly to potentially expand the universe with stories centered around tangential characters as she did with her Warm Springs trilogy (each book centering on a different character within the same circle of friends and acquaintances).
Of course, I wouldn't be opposed if Survival of the Fittest stopped in Warm Springs on their next tour...
