Okay, so these two books Rock and a Hard Place and Snapshot are centered around two brothers in a rock band called Jamieson that is run by their parents along with their other performer brother.
So, for this review, I'm just going to compare them against each other.
- Lots of drama
- A hot male lead
- A girl with daddy issues
- A girl with tons of baggage (I say these in the nicest way)
- Conflict with Jamieson family against the relationship with the brothers.
I liked Marti and Adam's romance better than Peter and Libby's, so I kind of prefer Snapshot. But Peter and Libby were cute together in Snapshot and Rock and a Hard Place. But I felt Libby should've contacted Peter directly after Garrett did the thing (no spoilers) and I literally groaned out loud when Marti and Adam had sex without protection.
But that being said, there is A LOT of drama in these books. Runaways, potential pregnancies, fires, sibling conflict, band conflict, people-sucking, family drama. A whole weird n-gon of dramatic proportions. And I think these books would be a cool potential teen soap. Get on it, ABC Family.
I rate Rock and a Hard Place 19/25 Guitars and Snapshot 22/25 Guitars.
