Blurb: All that glitters isn’t gold. Sometimes it’s plastic.
Kyle Summers hits the road with her band the Vagabonds, living the dream. Five young women are tossed into the limelight with little supervision, seemingly left to the wolves. Kyle is driven and headstrong, and—while she enjoys the temptations of sex and drugs on the road—music always comes first. In spite of her friends crumbling under the pressure and lack of support, the Vagabonds become a household name and enjoy success not experienced by people far beyond their years.
But Kyle realizes two things—one is that her relationships are hollow without love, but she and CJ, her main love interest, are only on-again, off-again at best, leaving her feeling unfulfilled. The second is that Kyle quickly grows weary of dealing with egos and prima donnas, and she feels helpless while watching her band fall apart.
Can she save her band—and her relationship with CJ—or will she end up alone and forgotten?
Vagabonds follows one young woman’s rise to fame past the pitfalls of sex, drugs, and easy money, through fortune and success to heartbreak and betrayal. Five girls build their band The Vagabonds from nothing but a hunger to create and quickly find that they are nothing but pawns in a larger game played by managers, agents, the press, the music industry, and all manner of unscrupulous, greedy people who want to feed on their triumphs. Friendships and lives hang in the balance. Who will survive?
My Thoughts: I will start by saying that the last few pages of this book gave me uber chills!!
Kyle and the Vagabonds doing a lot of growing up in this book and we watch them over a course of a few years. These girls are learning to live on the road, the sex the drugs, the liquor and of course the rock and roll…….the temptations prove to be too much for the Vagabonds in most cases.
We get to meet CJ again and we see more of him in this book and we see how much Kyle likes him even knowing they cant be anything more than friends. Both of their bands are growing and touring and trying to make sure that they make huge names for themselves.
But everything isn’t always peachy in Rock and Roll, the girls of the Vagabonds are doing a lot of growing and possibly growing apart, could this mean that they aren’t meant to be one of those bands that don’t make it, I sure hope not.
This book is by far more dark and deeper than the first and it is so amazing! Jade is able to keep it right at the line and make you want to read more and more. I cant wait for book three!!
