Then the problem comes in- Gia, former child star who was in the same group as Sadie but chooses to stay as Sadie’s assistant rather than take up the offer with the label. She piques Nick’s interest and he becomes more attracted to her while trying to keep his A game up with Sadie, who gets jealous and clingy. She sees right through Nick’s bs and keeps him on his toes and plagues his thoughts. She has a whole unique story all her own and it shows how crazy the music industry gets, especially working with Sadie.
Then you throw in another ingredient to a total cluster-Landry, the son of Nick’s boss and major star in the music world. Because of him, Nick starts learning more about what happened to this group of childhood stars and the friendships between them.
Starting out reading this book, Nick still is a total prick and not someone you want to know. As you read the story, you get inside his head more and understand his life and story more. You hate to fight for him knowing what a total tool he can be and how he operates as a con man. But then you see him really get a run for his money and fight to keep his ruse going in order to break into the music world. Gia starts to make his plan crumble but shows that Nick can care about someone else and face love versus dream job choices.
I definitely recommend reading this series! It has con games, cut throat music industry stories and, of course, a good love story.
