I've always wanted to go to Comic-Con, and now I want to go even more, based on the way the book describes it. Plus, it was awesome to be back with the cast of More than Music (and More than Exes) and I loved seeing the friends all together again. I'm already dying for the next book in the series, Behind the Seams!
I fell absolutely head over heels in love with the first book in this series, "More Than Music". There, I was introduced to a plethora of amazing secondary characters that intrigued me enough to want to read their stories, so as soon as I finished that book I immediately bought this one and binge read it through the night.
Hector is the drummer for "Villain Complex" and comes across as the most gruff guy at first but the way he softened up (eventually) towards Maddie in book one when she nearly broke up the band, showed me that he had a deeper, more sensitive side to himself which is one of the most irresistible qualities in a book hero for me. I can't honestly say that his story was AS good as Maddie and Jared's because that's like comparing Bella and Edward to any number of busted Kardashian pairings but Hector held his own in the romance department and the book was enjoyable overall.
"More Than Comics" hit pretty close to home for me with Hector and Tara being online friends for years that finally meet in person after all this time. I had a similar experience that was often reflected in this story and tugged me a little deeper than it might for most. Especially with their worries of if their shared connection online would translate into reality. Luckily for these two (and unlike my story) it did translate but there are a lot of obstacles to overcome for the passionate duo. I loved both Tara's and Hector's journey as individuals throughout the story. Tara's struggle for independence away from using a man as a fall back plan was something I admired about her. Hector's personal journey of feeling worthy and struggling with a past wound that scarred him pretty badly made me choke up a few times. Although Tara wasn't my favorite heroine ever, she did have some qualities I liked and together they made a great team. I loved how the band got behind them and helped open Hector's eyes up to the possibilities.
One of the best things about these books is how well the author shapes the dynamic of each character and their relationship to the band, which is the center focus of the series. Everybody has a different personality they bring to the table and it works so well to balance out all the other characters. The pacing of each scene was effortless and I'm always amazed at how authors write such fluid scenes with so much dialogue and passion packed into each chapter. This book felt a little like closure for the main members of the band who have found what they were looking for but there are a few outside secondary characters that have stories connected to the series, so I'm interested in seeing what those are about. Briggs writes a great romance full of laughter and passion, mild drama and deep bonds that make you believe in the kind of unshakeable love these characters find in each other. I'm a sucker for a great romance and Briggs has me eating out of the palm of her hand. If you want something sexy, fun and romantic without the over dramatized angst, these are some great books to satisfy you.

I feel like these books are getting better and better!
Tara and Hector cross paths when Tara decides to write her own comics and searches for an artist to do the artwork. Eventually, she picks Hector and they developed a great friendship. Both finally meet after 3 years of online friendship but neither of them know about the mutual attraction...
Hector is such an amazing character who I've very grown attached to. Though, he isn't open with his feelings towards his friends, I understand where he's coming from; his back story was utterly sad. Sometimes I was so frustrated with his decisions (same with Tara though). I think she was a decent and likeable character, but Hector just stands out more in my opinion.
Moreover, I absolutely adored all of the friendships in here, whether it is f/f, m/m or f/m. The Comic Con and supermarket scenes were so hilarious!
This book tackles a lot of diversity issues around the publishing industry. That's why Tara decided for her comics to be based on diverse characters (poc, queer, disabled, overweight) who are outcasts and not your typical superheroes.
I definitely appreciate this important aspect of the book.
Binge-reading this series is so much fun (the books are really fast to read). I've heard great things about the next book so I can't wait to pick it up!
