Our ReviewShel: Maybe after Bright Side and Gus, Kim Holden must've known we needed something different, something lighter. Franco delivers on that; while there are some definite moments that caused me a little worry, I laughed and smiled more than anything. If Bright Side and Gus were soul searching, Franco was soul healing. Court: I think you're right, Shel. After the first two...we had no idea what this member of the band would bring us. I was really, really, really ready to cry is about all i do know. Franco is such a great guy, and he is an absolute delight to read, so I don't know why I was so worried!
Shel: I enjoyed everything about the character of Franco--his general outlook on life, his care and humor, and how attuned he was to his friends. I also loved how he was with Gemma and how respectful he was of her feelings and her career and the circumstances they found themselves in. Court: He is an ultimate book boyfriend because of how awesome he was with her wasn't he! I absolutely enjoyed their "one night to friends to maybe more"journey, and was nervous every time they were apart. I mean...California to England is a BIG long distance relationship, so I never really knew how the book would turn out. And I liked that. I liked how much a role Gus played in the book, because sometimes when we have best friends the books block them out a little bit for the story development between the lovers, and I loved how much he was there with Franco and they truly were best friends. That was almost as great for me as Franco and Gemma getting to know each other! (What can I say...I'm a lead singer girl, and Gus is ah-mazing)
Shel: All in all, a really great "feel good" novel that just made me fall even more in love with this series and the members of the band. Court: YES! I am excited to see if the other two get their books, because they really could go in just about ANY direction because tbh, we don't really know a whole lot about what these two get up to in the books. A whole new world awaits us if we get them though, and I can't wait!
