I Liked It!
I am a huge fan of the Jail Bait series, and the forbidden romances that Mia Storm writes.
In Getting Lucky we get Shiloh’s (Lilah’s best friend) story as well as Tro’s. After Shiloh won the voice, she’s on tour as the opening act of Roadkill, Tro’s band. When Tro sees Shiloh for the first time he’s intrigued and by her. Shiloh is young, inexperienced and has no one in the business truly looking out for her, so she doesn’t trust Tro easily when he says she wants to help, not that he gave her a ton of reasons to in the beginning.
I really adored how strong Shiloh’s character was. The life she lived before making it big wasn’t an easy one, and she showed she was wiser than her years many times in this book, except when it came to her manager Billie. I knew something was going on with her, but I just wish that that Shiloh would have figured things out with her a lot sooner. As much as she wanted to hate Tro, she was drawn to him, I think these two characters were meant to be together, they both have lived a life that isn’t quite easy, and are just now figuring out who they really are.
Tro… oh Tro.. He’s a confusing character at times. He’s all work hard and play harder when we first meet him. He’s the picture perfect “bad rock star” and then once Shiloh enters his world, he starts to see things differently. I loved how the tried to stay away knowing that he wasn’t good for her, along with everyone else in the business, but Shiloh draws people into her world without even knowing it, and Tro definitely ended up drawn to her. I was so proud of him before he left for the European leg of the tour, and totally understand his reasoning on why he did what he did, but this is a part in the book that Shiloh shows her age and doesn’t get why Tro said and did what he did.
Tro and Shiloh have a long road to get to a HEA, and I enjoyed every single second of it. I really enjoyed how this book drew me in with awesome characters and a great story line. I loved the ups and downs of their story, and watching both of them grow up in this book. I really want to see more of these two in other books and hopefully we’ll get to see how things play out for Tro and “Lucky”!
If you’re looking for an angsty, forbidden romance with a hot rocker, I highly suggest picking up a copy of Getting Lucky today! You will not regret reading this book!
