Amelie Ayres has impeccable taste in music. Bowie. Bush. Bob. So when she finds herself backstage at The Keep's only UK gig she expects to hate it; after all they are the world's most tragic band. In fact she feels a grudging respect - not (obviously) for their music, but for the work that goes in to making them megastars. And when lead singer, 'Maxx', is not dressed up as a cross between Elvis and a My Little Pony, he is actually rather normal, talented and has creative struggles not too dissimilar to her own. But the next morning she wakes up and rolls over to discover a million new @'s on social media. Overnight, a photo of her at the gig has made her a subject of global speculation. Suddenly the world needs to know #Who'sThatGirl? - but for all the wrong reasons. All Amelie wants is to play her music. She's got the guitar, the songs, the soul and, in the safety of her bedroom, she's got the voice. But when it comes to getting up on stage, she struggles with self-doubt. Immaculate's a concept. Flawless is fake. But just sometimes music - and hearts - can rock a perfect beat.
,My review - What a wonderful story! I really enjoy a good boyband story and this one was really fun but, also had some serious moments which brought the whole book together.
Amelie is backstage at a gig, her father is working there and as a gift to her he brings her to the gig to see what it's like behind the stage as she loves that kind of stuff and getting to spend time with her father is an added bonus. But, after the night and meeting some of the band she finds her name online all over the place and everyone wants to know who she is and why she was with the band. She is getting attention for all the wrong reasons. Amelie loves to sing, write songs and play instruments. Can she overcome her stage fright? And possibly make things work with a special someone?
Maxx is the lead singer of The Keep and he is starting to drift away from the band. After meeting Amelie and her father things start to work out for him. He starts to grow close to Amelie but, with him in America and her in the UK she believes it might not work. Plus add an ex girlfriend and crazy fans. Can they overcome the obstacles in front of them?
I loved the build up of this relationship in this book. I love a slow build up and this is what this book gave me. It was so cute but I also loved the friendship in this book, and the family relationship. It really ticked all of the boxes for me.
Rebecca has written a fun boyband book that deals with overcoming your fears and fighting for what you want and I enjoyed every second of it!
