"In Bloom" [Brightside Series, Book 1] by Katie Delahanty

Author's Book Description : My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! An entertaining and enthralling love story! It's about a girl who's life turns up-side-down when she gets to know rock star crush and thrown into the world of the rich and famous. The kind of story every girl dreams about happening to them at one point or another (by having either the so nice/understanding boss and/or dating your idol crush), while making you laugh at the antics of Olivia's mother and friends.

I LOVED this novel and I cannot wait to see where this series will take us next! Especially since I feel it covered a lot of major twists that you'd typically see in a romance novel I'm not sure what else Ms. Delahanty can/will throw at Berkeley & Olivia. The only twist that surprised me by its rushedness was within the last chapter and I'm not sure it really flowed well with the rest of the novel, which is why I rated it the way I did. Basically, the last chapter makes me wonder even more, what twists are yet to come...

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes dramedy type of contemporary romances, especially if you like them with heroes who are in rock bands!

- On a side note -
I thoroughly enjoyed the tweets throughout the novel (even more so after I learned that Ms. Delahanty actually created each acct for her characters). The tweets made me want to use my own twitter acct more so then I have been lately! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
As I close the bathroom door behind me, I turn and am startled to see Berkeley leaning in the hallway’s doorframe.
My stomach drops, and I don’t think before I blurt, “We have to stop meeting like this.”
He laughs, and a little thrill shoots through me. I just made Berkeley Dalton laugh.
Taking me in, he steps forward. “Well, I don’t know where the Vicente is,” he says. “And maybe I was too presumptuous before—I’ll only come over if you want me to.”
I feel those eyes on me, and I struggle to hold it together. If I want him to? Does he think I have a choice? For a second I imagine saying no, but it’s not in me. It’s my nature to try to make him feel comfortable even when I’m so uncomfortable. “Of course you should come over if you want to. It’ll be fun,” I lie. If by fun you mean us staring at each other in painful silence while we both wonder why the heck you came over in the first place and maybe alternate between electrocution and water boarding. Sounds great. ~ within Chapter 12
