Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a drug problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—just need a little help taking the edge off sometimes. After downing a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska. Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers to all the best schools, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absentminded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered to come home from work, let alone deal with their new tenants next door. Penny’s not interested in dealing with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps and begins to see what he’s been missing. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

First things first: I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley. The book is already out, so you can go and check it out. (Warning for drug abuse and drinking) This is one of the books that I didn't see coming at all. In the beginning I was so unsure if I would actually like it or not. I coul...
Short review:This was a wonderful, fantastical book. I really loved the two main characters and how they slowly, but surely, grew together. Grew to love each other. Even while both have problems. Bishop has problems with pills, even if he doesn't know it (he thinks it isn't that bad for most of the ...
Drummer Bishop Riley suffers from anxiety when in large crowds; not a good predicament for one of the stars from the world hottest rock band. To ease his tension, Bishop began popping pills to take the edge off. After overdosing on drugs, he is given an ultimatum by his mom and manager. Go to Se...
Initial reaction: Not one of the better contemporary tough subject books in its genre that I've picked up. Honestly I found it rather...boring, and while it had several parts in the right place, I just couldn't get into it. I'm going to look through it again to see if my mind changes, but honestly...
