Susan sent me an e-mail when she sent me the link to this one. “This is how old I am,” she said. “One of my best friends loves this song and he’s taught his four boys to sing along, as lustily as possible, whenever it comes on. You can imagine what his wife, who is also one of my best friends (go figure) thinks of all this.”

Umm… no, actually, I can’t.

Lucky for me, the book has nothing to do with the song, once you get past the title. In fact, this has to be one of the best Rock Fiction setups I’ve ever seen!

Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.

But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?

Career mentoring day??? I love it!

I love that this isn’t necessarily a romance. We’ve been finding a lot of romances lately, so it’s good to see something else. Diversity. You know.

Bring this one on. Can’t get into my hands fast enough.
