Throughout the series we’ve seen little bits and pieces of Jimmy. Each time we’ve seen him he’s been a standoffish assh*le. Curious to see what made Jimmy a grade A jerk had me itching to read ‘LEAD’.
On stage Jimmy, lead singer for Stage Dive, is a show pony. He can work a crowd while looking down right yummy. Off stage is a completely different story. He’s rude and social niceties escape him.
Lena is a bit of a smart ass. She’s hired to be Jimmy’s sobriety companion and assistant. When Jimmy unleashes his frustrations she stands her ground never letting him see her cower. Basically her job is to keep him clean and deal with his crap.
Only problem with their professional relationship is they clash big time. The dynamics of their situation keeps you wondering if Ms. Scott has written a book where the hero and heroine just skip any romance and keep a professional relationship. You won’t find this out until the last two pages of the book.
Seeing all the guys in this book was icing on the cake. There’s a lot of hostility between Lena and Jimmy throughout the book and Mal adds the perfect comedic relief. The little bits of perfectly timed Mal moments made me laugh. One scene in particular ➜ when Lena and Jimmy were arguing and Mal broke the tension by running out of the room wailing, “I hate it when mommy and daddy fight!” He was good at taking stressful situations and giving everyone a good laugh.
Finally, a shout out to my state Oregon. Seems like Oregon is the place to be…at least in books. My Oregon shelf is growing by leaps and bounds lately. I ♥ Oregon.
