Title: Rock and a Hard Place
Series: The Jamieson Collection #1

Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Susane Colasanti, Angie Stanton's swoon-worthy romance--about an ordinary girl and a young rockstar--will keep readers on the edge of their seats . . . and leave them wanting more.

In an instant, Libby's life went from picture-perfect to a nightmare. After surviving a terrible car accident, Libby is abandoned by her father and left with her controlling aunt. A new town, a new school, no friends--Libby is utterly alone. But then she meets Peter.

The lead singer in a rock band with his brothers, Peter hates that his parents overly manage his life. Constantly surrounded by family, Peter just wants to get away. And when he meets Libby, he's finally found the one person who just wants to be with him, not the rock star.

But while Peter battles his family's growing interference in both his music andpersonal life, Libby struggles with her aunt, who turns nastier each day. Andeven though Libby and Peter desperately want to be together, their drastically different lives threaten to keep them apart forever.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

My Thoughts;

I had this book on my kindle forever so I was definitely interested in finally getting around to reading it and having a chance to be on the tour definitely gave me a chance to fit this one into my schedule and it was everything that I was expecting it to be and definitely one of those books that I was just in the mood for a good old fashioned love story. Stanton created a cute and adorable story that I really enjoyed that wasn't without it's flaws but, kept me reading and definitely had me wanting to read the rest of the story because  I  enjoyed it so much.

Libby has not had an easy past few years of her life, after her mom and sister are killed in a car accident, her dad who is depressed and driven by grief leaves her in the care of her aunt who is not  someone who should be taking care of a child to say the least. Libby loves  drawing and spends her time in the forest drawing whatever she see's. A chance encounter happens  when a tour bus stops to have lunch and a chance encounter with a boy named Peter changes everything.

  I will admit that the story did have a bit of insta-love but it didn't bother me, if you  are looking for a quick and cute YA romance this book is definitely up your alley, I feel in love with Libby and Peter and I couldn't wait to read more about the two of them.  I fell for Libby she was trying so hard and having to read about her life with her aunt made me so angry. Peter was devoted and adorable and I loved the two of them together.
