When they get an offer to join a national tour, the musicians of Luminescent Juliet finally find their ticket to fame. But for Sam, the band’s dazzling but troubled bassist, making sure his past stays locked away feels more important than winning the spotlight.
Then Peyton, a budding music journalist, joins the tour, tasked with chronicling the band’s every move. She and Sam have a history, one that has made them enemies. Neither wants to deal with old pain and misunderstanding, and they agree to keep the past in the past. This is more than fine with Peyton - after all, it’ll only help reassure her picture-perfect boyfriend back on campus that following the band is all totally professional.
Yet being forced to look at Sam in a new way brings Peyton a different perspective on the past - and his magnetic baby-blues and rippling muscles are hard to ignore. When the tour kicks into high gear, the real truth about their shared past comes to light, and Peyton is rocked by forces as passionate and chaotic as the music she loves.

The relatiinship between the brass drummer and the band publicist is rooted in the past. The had a hookup in high school that impacted them both. Years later they met again when she is hired to blog the band on their first tour. Proximity handles the rest.
This book did not establish enough of a telationship between our couple. The physical came first whickh lessened their relafionship. The other two books had a strong relationship first complemented by the physical. The reverse was not as compelling.
The story itself is good and a bit less (bit being the key word) angst in this one. The narrator did a fine job with the voices as well. I knocked off points on narration for pronunciation. I first rolled my eyes when our female protagonist "felt like a piranha" I don't know how Peyton would know how this particular type of fish feels? Extra carnivorous? Aggressive? Anyway, let it go. However, when Sam "gave a self depreciating smile" it kind killed it for me. I'm assuming this is narration and not an error in editing, either way what fits here? She felt like a Piranha or she felt like a pariah? He gave a self-depreciating smile or a self deprecating smile? If you can get past the small stuff it's a good 3rd book in the series.
