T she is only a
Pretty Thing To Grace The thing to grace the she is bold and strong talk straight and shot straight only with words but not for this reason she is less feminine or charming she is woman in all for all She is not lucky in love thought and she needs help even if she doesn t know how to ask All in all probably she is the best character in the book meaning how she behaves Luk probably is second in list but he is also very oung and maybe even a bit spoiled but his mother when he has the chance to build something steady with Jude he prefers to return back Home With His Mother And with his mother and to have a boyfriends relationship with his man but he is still 19 ears old and so it s only the right thing to do for him And the Jude he apparently is the balanced of the three no drink and drugs only safe sex and rock and roll but he is also the first to retreat in peaceful silence when things go wrong and it s not even the first time he needs to be said as behave with his wounded friend Lori Jude is not bad don t get me wrong but I believe that he is not as strong as Lori and Luk areAnyway the story is good and all the characters even the supporting ones are well developed and interesting And I like also the Australian setting I don t know how to explain but ou can say that it s another world than USA or UKNote Wonderful cover by Manic Pixie and despite the term Diva that in italian is female the boy on the cover is Luk Loved the concept of the book The overall writing was excellent
I really loved the characters The fact that this one actually has female characters that really loved the characters The fact that this one actually has female characters that t horrible is wonderful At first when I read the blurb I thought that Lori would be of the story than she was I read almost exclusive MM and wasn t sure how much I would enjoy a main female character involved in the story She isn t as much a part of the story as I thought she would be She is important to the story though I loved how the author incorporated Buddhism in the story I ve not read one before that had the religion in it Unfortunately the story just lackedsomething It didn t hold my interest I can t say there was necessarily anything wrong Maybe I m use to action Good book all the same Not sure I m going to finish it I m bored with it.

Argue and talk in her books because its so real and authentic Her characters are wonderfully drawn and they felt like a memory of people I ve knownI also love the way she doesn t have a plot plot Her book meanders its way through a traumatic and pivotal period in the lives of her MCs It did lose its momentum a bit before the end but it was the feel good ending I was hoping for45 stars Boys love show business setting and also a nice female character who doesn t mess with the two male characters What is there to not like in this storyLori is a drummer she is living with her boyfriend who is in a band and she has also the chance to write a song here and there but she really wants to play her music And so she puts an ad to find bandmates and Luk and Jude answer to itJude is Lori s best friend openly gay and with a nice voice but an even nicer look that goes well on stage Jude is Straight Edge ou can always learn something #while reading even if ou are reading romance from Wikipedia Straight Edge refers to a #reading even if ou are reading romance from Wikipedia Straight Edge refers to a that started within the hardcore punk subculture whose adherents make a commitment to refrain from using alcohol tobacco and recreational drugs Plus Jude is also a buddhist and so he is also vegetarian and avoids to have recreational sexLuk is a college student who is just starting to realize why he doesn t like to have sex with girls and why he finds so interesting blokes He still lives at home with his parents and he lives from an allowance he is also so lucky to have a former famous rock band member as neighbor that let him use her expensive euipment Luk is uite irresistible with his punk look that only hides a boy in searching of an identity And since he is so cute Jude can t avoid to fall
in love with himJude and Luk s relationship is easy and nice no much drama and verylove with himJude and Luk s relationship is easy and nice no much drama and very sex very simple and tender uite a novelty in a Laney Cairo s book since she has accustomed me to be uite bold and a source of info in unusual way to do it But probably in this book it was not necessary the love story is uite nice as it is with Luk s awkwardness since for him all and when I say all I mean that is new when it arrives to sex with a manWhen I said the Lori is a nice female character I don t mean tha.

As an Australian teen who had only previously read gay romance in the form of fanfic I discovered this book right when I needed it Reading it was a pleasingly familiar experience This is both the first ebook I ve ever bought and the first published original slash I ve read though I have read some online like Manna Francis The Administration
*i bought it *bought it I know the author and have read and enjoyed some of her fanfiction and when she posted a summary it sounded interesting enough to overcome my general lack of interest in the genrereturnreturnThe story is a romance obviously but what piued my interest was the fact that it seemed like it would be eually about the female member of the band Lori as it was about the two guys Jude and Luk It wasn t uite but she did play a big role and not as any sort of enta or other slash cliche role usually given to female characters Though Jude and Luk s relationship was the main focus this was definitely a story about the three of them together as friends and as a band all the way to the endreturnreturnOne of the things I have liked best about other stories I ve read by her is the richness of the detail and this is no exception She really made the band scene come alive and be than just backdrop for the romance I also really loved the Australian settingreturnreturnI think the biggest detraction for me was the way the characters talked about everything I don t like talky emotional stuff and this had a lot of itreturnreturnStill it was a good story and I d definitely recommend it to those who are interested
In Original Slash Yesoriginal slash Yes was a mm couple but it was about so much than that It was slow at the beginning but it still kept me entertained I ve come to realize that all my Australian reads have this cadence to them and I really like it Laney Cairo is able to get the atmosphere and setting of her novels just perfect She has a terrific sense of place In Bad Case of Loving You I could have sworn her background was a doctor in the British Public Health System Now having read The Tockleys she must have been part of a pub band in Fremantle Australia The details are so perfect from the prickly gumnuts on the hard ground to the angst of growing up I love the way people. Lori started her band The Tockleys when she couldn't get a gig as a drummer any other way If anyone had told her at the start how much trouble it would be she might have stayed at home and been a good goth girlJude is an indifferent guitar player but he's hot and he can sing More importantly he's the kind of serious clean living person who is.
