**'If you as a writer do not breathe through your writing,if you do not cry out in writing or sing in writing, then don't write because our culture has no use for it...Fine or fair writing isn't enough..'
There is something to be said for my honesty when explaining the creative structure or overall insight to this above average story because from the first page to the last sentence i was bored to the nth degree: lacks the kind of built-up sordid chemistry one expected when it pertains to the storyline's starring couple (a lovesick band member & a music teacher) plus the many different side stories inserted for every chapter one will read.
'STRINGS ATTACHED' might be brim with lots of behind-the-scenes anecdotes like what being in a band and they being on tour involved --- the sex,the insanity,the jealousy,the tabloid scandals and the feeling of togetherness etc --- but it still pretty much centered on the finding of true LOVE between all the important characters. While theory,harmony,the many mechanical & logistical skills of song or music creation,friendships and doubts about diving into any 'real' relationship while touring were very essential to the storyline which was something Ms.Stratimore affirms over and over again -- the lines were still pretty blurry with all the back & forth P.O.V.s and the second guessing that took place between both leads (Nikki & Drew) plus those hidden feelings and her (Nikki) constant drooling whenever she was around one of her bandmates.
In other words,i do believe that Ms.Stratimore might be trying to challenge us her avid readers in pinpointing or directing us away from the vast musical portion of this book and only for us to be absorbed in her vivid developing romantic love stories that was filtering on these pages. Lastly,what to some readers might appear as well researched lyrical work of art that was from a miraculous confluence of a talented writer might also end up being just an okay story that was filled with incessant details on finding that special LOVE!
Nikki and Drew were both likable characters who struggled with their emotions and life choices throughout the story. Nikki seemed to have demonstrated personal growth and a sense of self worth. Drew’s struggle with Nikki’s celebrity status was a constant problem. She often compared Drew to her mother, leaving Drew to constantly defend her actions. This back and forth became tiring at times, but at the same time Drew had a lifetime worth of abandonment issues that she needed to overcome.
There was a good mix of secondary characters each with their own interesting personalities. They added a welcome distraction to Drew’s emotional seesawing.
Overall, I believe, the author succeeded in making Nikki and Drew a “better version of themselves” by the story’s completion, and that, in itself, was worth the read.

Während einer Tourneepause daheim trifft Nikki auf die schöne Drew McNally, die im Musikladen ihres Vaters arbeitet und Musikunterricht erteilt. Nikki versucht Drews für sich zu gewinnen, doch Drew macht sich nichts aus Promis, seit ihre schauspielernde Mutter die Familie verließ.
Der Reiz des Buches liegt vor allem darin, dass Nikki immer wieder versucht Drew als feste Partnerin zu gewinnen, während Drew stets einen Schritt vor und zwei zurück macht. Zeitweise könnte man Drew schütteln.
Nikki dagegen ist abseits ihrer Rock Star Attitüde absolut sympathisch und liebenswert.
Ein Buch zum Lachen und Weinen. Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen
It’s a good story, I enjoyed the flow and I will definitely read more of this author.
