You start your journey with Sydney when she was just thirteen. "My body at the time happened to be crafted by my mother's Southern cooking and a foul she-devil named Little Debbie." Sydney is head over heels in love with Simon Young of the boy band, London Boys. A chance encounter when she was just a teen leaves her forever changed!
Fast forward to present day and Sydney is at her new job eager to pick up her first clients. Even more eager when she learns from her friend and co-worker, Lacey, that this potential client is none other than LONDON BOYS!!! *Insert 13 Year Old Fangirl Squeal*
Throughout this novel, I adore the glimpses into the well-being of Ethan and Sam and all my other new friends from Delia. With a little encouragement from a friend and uber hot Hollywood director (Ethan) Sydney is given the chance of a lifetime! (Both career and personal!) Sydney and Simon's second meeting was anything but ideal. And when he finds out the next day that she is the band's new PR representative - things become a little awkward.
London Boys has been through a lot of downs over the last 10 years and Simon seems to be the root of a lot of problems. He has dealt with a loss that his brothers in the band cannot imagine. During this rough time, Simon choose Jack Daniels and nameless women instead of accepting the help of his friends. Needless to say, their relationship is suffering.
This a such a strong story of friendship, second chances, finding yourself and true love. The journey to your HEA is a lot bumpy then most and filled with hard decisions, a lot of tears and a pair of Doc Martens. "You had me at Doc Martens." I loved Rob, Ollie and even James (the other guys in the band!) a ton, and would love to see a book from Ollie, even if it is such a novella. His character leaped off the page and into my heart. (Jealous, Lacey?!?) Lacey is Sydney's uptight cardigan and pearl wearing friend, who I loved! She is snarky and her crush on Ollie is perfect. (His need to her school teacher exterior makes me giggle!) Every character fit perfectly. It was just the right chemistry. The banter is perfect! These are some of my favorite lines:
