What can you say about a book with a title this super?

Twenty-one-year-old front girl Emmylou knows that getting her band noticed in the ‘90s indie rock scene will be no easy task. She definitely knows better than to break the number one rule of the band: Don’t sleep with your bandmates! But after she ends up having the best sex of her life with her guitarist, Travis, she finds following that rule is a lot harder than it sounds.

When the band gets the gig of their dreams, making it big seems just within reach. But Emmy’s inability to keep her hands off Travis threatens everything they’ve worked for. Can Emmy find a way to break the rules and not blow the chance of a lifetime?

Now, I don’t know that sleeping with your bandmates is the #1 rule. I mean, look at Fleetwood Mac. Rob Zombie and Sean Yseult. I know there are others, too, but just can’t think of ’em right now. But if that’s the rule for this band — which has no name — then, yeah, Emmylou, babe, you’re flirting with trouble.

The way this is written, Emmylou’s got a bigger problem than you’d think at first. I mean, how does Travis feel about all this? And would screwing your bandmate really screw up your chances at the big time?

I bet Fleetwood Mac would agree with that. Not.

There has to be more to this book than just that. There just has to be.

Oh, and who was asking Susan about bands featuring chicks? This one’s got one.

Sending out #Rocktober birthday wishes to one of my of-the-moment current favorite lead singers, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

I know. This has absolutely nothing to do with the collision of fiction and music. But I couldn’t resist.

Got a Rock Fiction title in mind featuring a hot yet (seemingly) together frontwoman? Leave the title in the comments. Leave a link to your review. Whatever. Just get it on our radar around here. (Hey, Lzzy, you are welcome to, also! Do you even read Rock Fiction? I don’t blame you if you don’t. It’s like lawyers reading books about other lawyers.)

And I’ll leave you with a Halestorm song I can’t get enough of: Private Parts. (This is not the official video; there doesn’t seem to be one. Why the hell not?)
