America’s favorite pop band, Roman Holiday, is done, dead, and so totally last year. For eighteen-year-old rockoholic Junie Baltimore, this is music to her ears. But when she discovers their sexy ex-lead singer hiding out on the boardwalk, her summer vacation becomes the cover story of the year.
She’s willing to keep him a secret, but when a sleazy paparazzo offers her the cash she needs to save the bar her father left behind, could she sell out for the chance to save her future? Who is she kidding? That’s a no-brainer…but she never planned on falling head over heels for the lead singer.
The Sound of Us written by Ashley Poston was an entertaining and quick read for Valentine’s Day this year. It was a nice “middle” between New Adult and Young Adult, and offered me an insightful view on the average mind of an 18 year old “radio heart” named Junie, AKA Junebug. The character development was spot on for Junie. It was great getting to know her and what her life is all about. Then, of course, there’s Roman and Boaz, who were, in my opinion, perfect beyond perfect. I could not have anticipated falling in love with this book, which I had stumbled across on my NOOK’s “Under $2.99 Reads” section. Now, I’m glad I paid the three bucks and read it. Overall, I’ll give The Sound of Us 4.5 out of 5 stars. It does not receive the full 5 stars mainly because I really wanted to see more of Roman and Junie, but also her BFF and Boaz! The fact that Goodreads has the book titled The Sound of Us (Radio Hearts, #1) makes me hope there will be a second one!
