it was amazing
Read in January, 2016
As a fan of Lisa Swallow's work, I could not wait to get my hands on her next installment of her Ruby Riot series. I was not disappointed when I did. I have been reading snippets about the Campbell Twins and their crazy antics since I first found Lisa Swallow's Blue Phoenix Series. (As this series is a spin-off from Blue Phoenix, I was ecstatic to finally learn more about Will Campbell.) I must admit, Lisa made me completely fall in love with him as well as Fleur Roberts in this story.
After going on Tour with Blue Phoenix, the International Rock Band, Ruby Riot is on hiatus until their next album releases. To keep their parents happy as well as footing the bill for things in the mean time, Will and Nate Campbell are back at university completing their degrees in History. Despite their lack of attendance last term, Nate still seems to be pulling decent marks, but Will on the other hand is in a heap of trouble if he wants to graduate on time. The "Rockstar" lifestyle he was enjoying so much was not conducive to retaining information about history. He decides the only way he will ever be able to pass this term is to join a study group. There is only one problem. The girl running the group absolutely despises him. After making his feelings about her known in a rather publicly obnoxious way, Will knows there is absolutely no way she will ever let him join the group. When he approaches her to join the group, she mistakenly takes him for his twin brother Nate. Will decides desperate times calls for desperate measures. After all what's the worse that could happen?
There is so much more to this story than I could have ever imagined. I laughed, I cried and felt every emotion imaginable as I watched it unfold. Lisa Swallow's talent as a writer is unbelievable. Just when I thought she couldn't grip my heart any further, I was completely undone by the raw emotions and depth of characters she developed. I absolutely fell in love with Will Campbell and I can't wait to see what Lisa has in store for me next!
The H decides to pretend to be his identical twin brother because he'd offended the h at a party and she wanted nothing to do with him. He's the bass guitarist in the Ruby Riot band and he goes back to finish his degree at uni when the band takes a break. He's not doing well and wants to join the h's study group but she's not impressed with him at all. He manages to wangle his way in by pretending to be his brother. We all know how that's going to work out but that wasn't the issue for me.
There is a major incident, which causes the h to break things off with the H and then they are separated by the band touring anyway. They initially stay in touch but this dwindles right off. They are apart for 3 months. I had difficulty accepting this because they were so in love and it was really late in the book. This created doubt for me that they would really make it in the long run. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens in the next book.
Will is one of a set of twins who is instantly drawn to Fleur at a party. Even drunk, he professes his love for her. Fleur gets angry and thinks that he's just playing with her, trying to make her look like a fool. After all, everyone knows that Will and his brother are players. They don't give a crap about love.
Even though Will and his brother are a part of the band, they're taking a break because the main singer had a baby. So while on the break, him and his brother decide to attend university as the Brits say. Their parents refuse to help them out with money unless they go to school. They're not rich yet, the band isn't taking off yet, so they got no choice but to attend school to their dismay.
Will is struggling in school, especially Math (I think), a class that Fleur is great at. He has no choice, but to join Fleur's study group. The only problem is.... Fleur hates Will, so she would not let him join, he thinks. So he pretends to be his own brother instead.
Man that just makes you cringe right? Imagine them talking, her realizing that she actually likes him but thinks he's the other brother and he has to lie because he has no choice.
That's why I liked this book. It had a huge twist that made you think and wonder what will happen next. What will happen when she finds out he lied? How will she find out? Will she believe him?
The only person I truly hated was Will's twin brother. He's such an ass. He doesn't want to see his own brother happy? He tries to destroy and make Fleur run away. Will realizes that even he has to stand up to his own brother and break away. Even though he's a twin, he has to choose his own path and own happiness. I can't wait for Will's brother to find his own doom, I mean love, in the next book, so he will quit his snickering at the thought of being in love with a girl. Karma... That's all I gotta say. Karma is sweet. And it will be super sweet for him.
Lisa Swallow honestly cannot fail with her books. I've read all of them and have not been disappointed yet. I think this series might be my favorite though. I love Ruby, she's just a great character and every time I see her in the book, I love it.
Now, I'm eagerly anticipating the next book. Ooh, Will's twin has it coming! CAN'T WAIT!

I've read the Blue Phoenix series by this author and enjoyed it so looked forward to this. I enjoyed this a lot.
This can be read as a standalone. Reading the previous books in the series is not really required
We've met Will before. He's the bassist for the upcoming band, Ruby Riot. He doesn't make the greatest of first impressions on Fleur when they met and now needs a plan to get her on board, as she is the one in charge of the study group he needs to join to try and pass his college work. His great idea is to swap identities with his twin Nate. Much hilariousness and misunderstanding ensue.
I loved Will. He was funny and a typical rocker but hid a sweet caring side underneath. He is a cool character.
Fleur is not sure what to make of Will/Nate at first but soon warms to him, I liked her character a lot. Some of the decisions she made at times annoyed me a little but over all she's funny and sweet.
The book is written well and the plot flows along nicely. Some of this authors previous books I've read have been angstier than this but I enjoyed that there wasn't needless angst thrown in that wasn't necessary for these characters. Some books I've read have thrown in loads for the sake of it and it just doesn't work. I'm glad this wasn't like that.
I enjoyed this a lot and would recommend to anyone that likes a college romance and rocker romances. 4.5 Stars.
I have read all of the Blue Phoenix series and loved all of those. Ruby Riot is a follow on from that
Lisa swallow Has me hooked on her books
but don't take my word for it go on and read them for yourselves
