Publisher's Summary

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once-boring life absolutely insane.

It starts with a pen. A single brush of fingers and she is captivated. But Alec and Demetri have a dark secret, one that could shatter their reputations and Natalee's heart. What do you do when one guy paints your life with color while the other infuses your soul with passion? How do you choose when your heart is divided?

This is a New Adult/Mature YA. Minor swearing and drug usage.

Great Find

I stumbled upon this series by chance and fell in love with it.

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once boring life, absolutely insane.

The messed up love between Alec, Demetri and Nat was extremely interesting. AD2 seems to have so many skeletons in their closets. This book was funny and entertaining to me. I love the characters and the banter between them. I highly recommend this book to any one who love a good book!

Keeping in mind...

...it's about teenagers. I gave it 3 stars. I didn't connect with the book, though. I didn't like the love triangle thing. I had a hard time with liking any of the characters. I think this has more to do with me than the book, though. The childish nature of the book was difficult to follow.

Nat is one very lucky girl!

I loved the book. It's easy to get torn between two guys. It's even easier to have no earthly idea what to do. Rock Stars though, oh, heart be still.
Hold on to your seats girlfriends, it's going to be a very bumpy ride.

Just So...

The love triangle between Demetri, Alec and the h is just not real to me. It was glaring she wanted one brother and not the other. Apparently without this so called love triangle, there wont be a story. Also the way it was resolved just meh... The brothers also seemed immature and all that, but I guess because they are teenagers it has to be that way. Maybe. Anyways the next book might be better.

Eh.

On sight, in love, no! the brother, rock stars with tragic vaguely explained stories. Fianced without asking, tragedy, happy ever after. vague unexplained questions. no merit, no substance, no believability. struggled to listen. ugh. Her books usually are much more entertaining.

love

Great story on young love and how undecided teens are and what comes as consequences. heart breaks, luck or second chances don't befall all of but some get lucky.
