Présentation de l'éditeur

Eighteen-year-old Riley Middleton should be far away from home, about to start her freshman year of college on a full-ride scholarship she earned with her unmatched skills on the drums. But instead of marching-band practice and dorm life, Riley is stuck at home—her family needs her. In an effort to help her regain her rhythm, Riley’s best friends encourage her to try out as the drummer for the hot college rock band Luminescent Juliet. But when Riley shows up for the audition, the three band members aren’t what she expected: all of them have more ego than Riley wants to deal with, and they all are drop-dead gorgeous.

Sparks immediately fly with Romeo, the band’s dark-haired and sexy lead guitar player, who doesn’t want Riley in his band and relentlessly pushes her to quit. But drumming is all that’s keeping Riley’s spirit alive—she has to make this work, and if that means ignoring both Romeo’s taunts and his dangerously smoldering looks, she’ll find a way to stay in the band.

As Luminescent Juliet’s fame increases, Riley finds herself caught among the egos and magnetism of her bandmates. If she wants to play the drums, she must find a way to ignore the sparks that threaten to ignite the tensions simmering onstage, ready to explode into a raging fire of passion at any moment.

This book is intended for mature teen audiences due to strong language and some sexual content.

Loved loved loved this book!
It's no secret that I tend to gravitate to the books that have kick ass women and hot guys... Band members at that!
Riley is a great drummer, skate boards, dresses, acts, and shows no fear. She makes no apologizes to anyone. It's refreshing to have an author write a story about a strong woman and not have her be this homely lookin girl. And on the flip side she is forever loyal to her family and does anything to help them out.
Romeo Oh Romeo. And doing another 180, the author introduces you to Romeo who from all outside appearances is this hot womanizing jerk. Then Jean Haus pulls back his layers and you find yourself only wishing that this guy lives next door to you.
Riley had to give up so much of herself to stay at home and take care of her mom and sister because of her parents divorce was heartbreaking. Only to have her try and find something to help give herself a little peace so she tried out for a band. Romeo not wanting any part of her in his band. Not explaining himself he made it a point to try to get her to quit. Riley being as determined as she is wasn't going to let that happen. And that's when the fireworks begin....
I really enjoyed the little insight at the end where the author showed Romeos POV during Riley's band audition. Wow!
Jean Haus did a wonderful job in telling this tale. From the first page I was hooked. The characters were woven together and kept you invested.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rat-A-Tat-Tat Romance! 22 octobre 2012
Par Amanda Clark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is one of the sweetest, funniest, most amazing books I have read yet! The story centers around a young girl who loves playing the drums and after giving up her scholarship to play for a school and a major drumline joins a local band to help her family. Once she joins the band she starts to realize she is attracted to the bands guitarist. He treats her like sh¡t but she is determined to stick it out until she discovers he isn't such a jerk after all.

I can't even begin to express my feelings about this book. I was in the marching band as a drummer when I was in high school and I could absolutely identify with Riley. Being so in love with an instrument and not being able to play it is very hard to get over especially when it's all you've got. Like riley my mom was raising me alone and my drums kept me company. Riley has to balance her home life with her school and music then Romeo comes into the picture and shakes up her world.

It has some tough moments that had my heart breaking to pieces for both Riley and Romeo but once you get past the hard stuff, you get rewarded with a beautiful conclusion.

I thought Sleeping Handsome was my favorite of hers but she blew my mind with this book! Bringing back beautiful wonderful memories of my childhood was only one bonus of reading this book, the next best bonus was the steamy romance bits we see between some of the characters! I love when a book doesn't get TOO in depth with the saucy stuff but is descriptive enough to make you want to fan yourself! That is when you know you have a good author on your hands! They can draw the emotion out of you instead of just laying it all out there!

This is a gem to read and I know I will be rereading it again and again in the future! Everything was just fantastic, the writing, the characters, the emotional depth and the romance was the ice cream sundae but the music and the plot was the cherry on top that really makes this book special! I am going to STFU now because I could ramble on and on and on....

Who wouldn't want to be an awesome drummer and in the band with 3 hot guys? Well, Riley wouldn't, that's who. At least at first. Riley is a great drummer, had a scholarship to a great college to play for their marching band, but decides at the last minute that due to family issues she can't go away. So she makes a huge sacrifice for her mom and sister and stays home. But this means that she no longer has the life she dreamed of, and isn't playing in her new college's marching band. Her friends convince her to try out for a local alternative rock band, as their drummer. It's not what she wants, but she finally realizes it's a chance for her to play the drums, one of the only things that still makes her feel free and happy. Her status as a hot girl drummer effects the guys in the band, without her really knowing it. Two of the band members (Sam and Justin) are flirty with her, but she knows she doesn't want it to go anywhere with them. And the one member in the band that she does feel attracted to (Romeo) is hell bent on making her quit the band. Riley is determined not to quit, but problems at home are increasing, and things with Romeo are finally heating up... I loved the attraction between Riley and Romeo, the way her friends cared for her, and especially how strong Riley was while dealing with everything in her life. I don't regret purchasing In the Band and hope that Jean Haus writes a sequel or maybe a book from Romeo's POV.

In the Band by Jean Haus has definitely taken its spot on my list of favorite New Adult novels. A story about a girl joining a band full of hot guys, especially the hot but frustrating guitar player Romeo? Yeah. Who doesn't want to read about that?

More times than not, in books like this one, I end up disliking the main character within the first few pages. For some reason, they always seem like the same down-and-out, sarcastic, defensive girl who can't let anyone get close to her. That is so not the case with Riley. She's real, low key, honest and funny. And I connected to her immediately.

Riley feels guilt about her family's problems, things that have nothing to do with her. She cooks, cleans, takes care of her sister, all while her mother sinks further into depression. And Riley is the one who is left feeling guilty for wanting to "waste time" in a band or with a boy. I felt such sympathy for Riley, I felt an understanding for why she felt the way she did, but I also had some frustration because Riley was the only member of her family to act like an adult and step up to the plate, even though none of it was her fault or problem. I kept wishing she'd realize that everyone else needed to deal with there own issues and just give everyone the finger and ditch out on them all. But, of course, Riley being the loving, caring daughter that she is would never do something like that.

Then there's the guitar god known as Romeo. I'm telling you, this book is a swoon-fest and it's all Romeo's fault. This boy definitely lives up to his name. The heat between him and Riley sizzles right off the page. Sure, Romeo's character seems like a bit of wish fulfillment, but he is still slightly flawed (in a way that makes him even more attractive). Basically, he reminds me a lot of Lucas from Easy. And I know many of you love Lucas from Easy just as much as I do. And there's even a little extra at the end of the book, a pivotal scene in Romeo's POV, that gives the reader a nice little look inside his head.

In the Band is a mature YA/New Adult novel and, due to a little sexual content, is not recommended for younger readers. But, it it's a steamy romance in the same vein as Easy you're after, then In the Band is the book for you!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent story that didn't quite live up to its exceptional potential 19 octobre 2012
Par Catherine Burkholder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In the Band is a fairly good, quick read. It's told from the point of view of Riley - a new college freshman and gifted drummer who's dealing with the fallout of her parent's divorce.

The set up is that her mother is slipping deep into depression after the divorce, so Riley gives up her percussion scholarship to an out-of-state university in order to live at home and help with her mother and eight-year-old sister. Her father doesn't have custody and is apparently too wrapped up in his new fiance to be in the picture. Her two best friends see all the sacrifices she is making and convince her to join a local band who's looking for a drummer but only need to practice and perform a few hours a week. At the auditions, she's clearly the best candidate, so she gets (grudgingly) chosen, but from then on it's clear that the guitarist wants her out of the band (presumably because he's sexist) and the other two bandmates hit on her. The story focuses on her developing relationship with the guitarist, the deteriorating situation with her family, with the two best friends' relationship with each other.

OK, so, there're a lot of character/relationship/plot arcs that are introduced. There are Riley's relationships with the adults in her life (mother, dad, fiance) during a divorce. Her relationship with her little sister is also important in her live, since, we are told, she's largely raising her sister by herself right now. Riley's giving up her old dreams and also starting college and quitting marching band and joining a rock band. And her best friends are always at each others throats while being there for her. Most centrally, we have her relationship with her new bandmate, Romeo. Plus, we get themes like music and intimacy and depression and sacrifice and love.

Unfortunately, the author does very little with most of it. Although the situation with her parents and sister are central to her life, the characters and relationships involved are underdeveloped. We are told that her mother used to be a perfect homemaker, but became depressed with the divorce. Her sister is eight years old and friendly. Her father is an engineer who is uninvolved with the kids after the divorce (aside from once-a-week dinners), but is in love with his new fiance, and his new fiance is a pretty, young professional in love with the dad. That's it. Four plot devices in character form. And they apparently exist in a vacuum, since *even after her mother is hospitalized* we never hear anything about other relatives or friends of the family. None of these characters have hobbies or personality quirks (other than "outgoing" for the plot moppet and "depressed" for the mom), and we only get a couple bits of history with the mom - enough to know that she used to be a happy homemaker. We are told that this is the most important stuff going on in her life, so I'm disappointed the author doesn't give it a commensurate level of depth and complexity.

Riley's best friends are more fleshed out as characters (the girl more than the boy), although as a subplot, it's still a pretty thin. Her relationship with both of them is the same at the end of the book as at the beginning, and although their relationship with each other changes greatly, since the story is from Riley's POV and she's rarely around both at the same time, we get most of relationship arc happening second-hand.

Starting college seems pretty much like high school, except that she visits people/parties in dorms a couple times, but otherwise doesn't seem like it's different to her than high school, so it's a non-starter as a theme to explore in the book.

The big action in the story is in her relationship with Romeo. I have mixed feeling about him. On the one hand, he's hot and admirable and, over the course of the story, his character is revealed and the relationship evolves, so it's definitely richer than the rest of the book. On the other hand, he's a over the top - he's a gorgeous musician/genius student/boxing champ/business manager who volunteers with young kids and on a suicide hotline, can flirt sexily but doesn't sleep around, and who has a dark past is now completely mature and holds out for love. He even keeps his room clean. I wish he were a little less perfect. More problematic, I have trouble buying some of his actions which end up being central to the plot.

*Spoiler*
Here's a case in point: Romeo's driven to make the band a success, but for the first part of the book, he tries to force Riley out of the band. Why does he do this? Supposedly because he's attracted to her and knows the other band members will flirt with her and so he worries that she'll tear the band apart. Except that even after she's in the band, he's still trying to force her out. So I have trouble seeing how her leaving the band would be so preferable to him (since they'd have to replace her with another drummer, and they already know she's the best they can find) than one of the other band mates leaving. Especially since the other two band mates are sketched in as flirty man whores who clearly do not have serious intentions towards her, so it's pretty unlikely to me that it would really break the band apart if she dated Romeo. And even more especially since his plan to prevent this is to act like a dick, which is out of character to him. I don't know. I can believe someone else might act that way in his position, but I don't feel like it's consistent with his character as written (mature, kind, and driven to make the band succeed). There are a couple other places in the book where this happens - where Romeo or Riley act in a way that isn't completely unreasonable, but seems determined more by what the author wants the plot to do rather than what the characters would actually do.

*Spoiler*
The last disappointment to me was the ending. It was a little flowery, but I can live with that. My big complaint is that we have her giving up her music "for love". I don't know if I like that message. She sacrifices her initial dreams and time for her family, her boyfriend for her family, and then her music for her boyfriend. The first was arguably necessary, the second may have been a mistake in judgement, but I could see it as a likely decision given her character. But I don't see why the last sacrifice was needed. Couldn't she have explored music as a major (especially since she had a scholarship before to a more competitive school, so she'd likely be accepted into the program here)? Or take a few hours a week to be in the band since her parents are stepping up more? Or find some other outlet for her passion for drumming in a band? Choosing love may sound romantic, but I'd rather have a less martyred heroine who keeps this vital part of what makes her special, especially since no one is asking her to make that sacrifice.

All that aside, as with previous Haus stories (e.g. Sleeping Handsome, which I really enjoyed), I find the writing pretty easy to read. And the main character in this one is likable and we get an HEA, so even though it's not the story I wish it were, it's still a decent way to spend an afternoon. I recommend it if you like this sort of story and aren't looking for anything life-changing.
