5 stars

I knew going out not this that this book was going to be good. The reviews I had read all raved about it. Did I think it was going to be a five star read? Nope. I was mistaken. This book sucked me in. This author has a way with words that left me in awe. She made it appear seamless and that is the reason why it works. This book had been on my TBR for awhile and now I could kick myself for not reading it earlier.

The chemistry between Laird and Reese was beautiful. If the got any hotter it would've been an inferno. This wasn't your typical college dating romance but rather was two dual flames finally getting to find their other half. I loved them so much.

I loved the side characters. Smith was a hoot but the best was Eli. That sweet sweet boy owned my heart. I loved the moral of this story- of not just loving someone in good times but in bad. It's so easy to forget that. This story reminded me of that, and promptly reminded me to put my kindle down and tell my son that I loved him (the scene with Laird and his dad gutted me.)

Drumline appealed to me for several reasons: first, Kestwick's books are awesome-sauce. Second, I was a band nerd and I love stories about other band nerds. I connected with the characters right away because even though I wasn't a drummer, I was in band and thought that everything Kestwick wrote about various instruments and the people who play them were spot on. It was like a flashback to high school. I didn't continue on in college, but I imagine it was exactly like high school except more...everything.

Laird wasn't quite the asshat I was expecting. He falls for Reese quick and doesn't dance around it. Reese is obviously hesitant because he is the captain and she doesn't want the gossip. But, Laird is persistent! Holy moly are these two combustible. There is so much sexual tension between them. HAWT!

Laird and Reese are also deep characters. Both have pain in their past that has shaped who they are and who they plan to become. I particularly loved Laird's backstory and his desire to be someone his brother would be proud of. Drumline gives you all kinds of feels-super steamy, deep emotional, and pure anger/hatred! Kestwick has a way with writing characters who seem so real yet so perfect they can't possibly be real. Its kind of magical.

Smith is the kind of character everyone wants as a friend. I am hopeful we will get his story sometime ;) (Please Stacy, we need it!). I could have kept reading about Laird and Reese forever because both of them are so damn likable. They didn't have the usual miscommunication, drama-llama traps you find in most new adult romance and for that, I am eternally grateful!

 

  • POV: dual 1st

  • Tears: some!

  • Trope: college, marching band, secret relationship

  • Triggers: The characters spend time with childhood cancer patients. This might be too much for some people who have had experience with cancer

  • Series/Standalone: stand alone

  • Cliffhanger: no

  • HEA: yes with epilogue





Seriously swoony heroes like Jockblocked by Jen Frederick, Anti-stepbrother by Tijan, Embody by SE Hall...then you will probably like Drumline!

Stacy Kestwick takes it to a whole new level with this book. I have been drooling over it since I saw the cover, so when I got a chance to read it, I was all over it. This book is nothing short of amazing, with all kinds of tingly feels. The book itself sets it self up as every other college romance, until you get reading. That is when Stacy unleashes her inner writing beast.
Laird...oh I know there will be plenty of women claiming him as their book boyfriend. I mean who wouldn't? Tall, built, and can play drums? Yes...please. Here are my panties. The perfect foil for Laird, is Reese, a bad to the bone chick that can hang in a drumline. Yes please. Reese and Laird have some serious chemistry right from the word go. You cannot deny needing to read this book until you hit the end all in one go.
Overall, this book is a 5 star read without a doubt. The writing is crisp, the characters,including the secondary ones, are well developed and nothing is left hanging, which is great. I hate when there are little threads of story lines not all nice and neat. Overall, ya need to read this amazing book. Told in dual POV.

**I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest voluntary review. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**

When I read the description for Drumline, I knew it would be the perfect book to introduce me to the world of audiobook romance reads. The premise was fun and unique and I knew there would be fantastic tension between the leads. I couldn't wait to start it!

The plot for this story really surprised me in a great way. I thought most of this novel would be about Reese fighting for her spot on the team while fighting her attraction to Laird. But it has a much deeper and more heartfelt storyline than I anticipated; especially in the second half of the novel. The first half of the novel focuses mostly on the tryouts for the team and the chemistry that is constantly brewing between Reese and Laird. But the second half of the novel is really where these characters shine and the great development of the romance and the characters take place.

I really liked Reese as a heroine. She's determined to succeed and she has the brains to do it. Laird is also a great character. I wasn't sure at first what he would be like but he really impressed me as the story progressed and we uncover more about him. He has a kind heart and he too is also very driven and determined to succeed.

For the first half of the book, the connection between Reese and Laird is pretty superficial and understandably so. They don't know each other very well given the circumstances but they have this palpable chemistry whenever they are in the same room together. It isn't until the second half of the novel that the deeper, emotional connection starts to thrive and their relationship becomes something more than just physical.

I laughed, I cried and I loved every minute of this book! It surprised me in the best way with its story and characters.
