I like boy bands...and boys in bands


I.Love.Boy.Bands. There I said it.  My name is Angie, I’m way pass the boy band age requirement, and I love boy bands.  I guess New Kids on the Block ruined me and I’ll always hold a special place in my heart for boys in bands.  I think I just like the fun cheesy music and it takes me back to my teen years (or that's what I keep telling myself).  Because of my love of bands, rock star romances are a favorite of mine.  I tend to stray from the really “steamy” ones.  Don’t get me wrong, some of my faves are pretty steamy (Heidi McLaughlin's Beaumont series), but I have a special place in my heart for those that tell the story and keep it clean.
Recently I came upon a rock star romance by Heidi Hutchinson.  The book, Learn To Fly, is the first in a series that will focus on the members of the band Double Blind Study. While the books can be read as standalones, I recommend reading them in order to prevent spoilers.  Trust me, once you've read the first, you'll want to continue to the next!  The blurb:

Lenny Evans felt like her life was suffocating her. She would do just about anything to change that, which is how she ended up taking a job that landed her on tour with the biggest rock band in the world.

The plan was simple: get a job, get out of town, and don’t get attached. But Lenny has never met anyone like the members of Double Blind Study and they easily adopt her into their makeshift family. Now, Lenny finds herself caring far too deeply for these tattooed misfits, daily bringing them closer and closer to revealing Lenny's true past and everything she's running from.

Sometimes crashing headlong into the unknown isn't the worst thing.



The things I loved most about this book is that it tells an awesome story, the characters are realistic, the romance is real, and it’s clean!  There is plenty of chemistry between Lenny and Luke and you can feel it in the story.  Don't misunderstand and think these guys are innocents.  They are foul mouthed rock stars who have lived the self indulgent life of a celebrity. Each of their personalities are very distinct and Heidi does an awesome job of setting each guy apart from the other. I think I fell in love with each one.  This book totally sold me on Heidi’s writing and I’m currently in the process of reading the second book in the series, In Your Honor. Check her out, you will not be disappointed!
