Title: The Hope That Starts
Author: Heidi Hutchinson
Genre: NA Romance
If there's one thing Zelda Fitzpatrick is good at, it's fandom. She can out-geek the geekiest. Her devotion knows no bounds. Her love is true, her motives pure. Oh, and she's also a talented freelance photographer, newly hired to go on the road with one of her favorite bands, Double Blind Study. All she has to do is not ruin this opportunity with her nerdy references (which are in abundance) or her devout klutziness. And she probably shouldn't fall madly in love with lead guitarist, Harrison O'Neil... who is taken. Unfortunately.
YAY IT’S HARRISON’S STORY! Alright so I was super excited to get the chance to read The Hope that Starts because Harrison was a sweetheart in the previous books and I just love him so much! He’s such a sweetie and sigh, I’m gushing a bit.
But in the prologue we see a different Harrison from the one that we usually see. This Harrison is introspective, sad and just not his usual happy-go-lucky self. It was different and appropriate for what’s going on. Not to mention as I said you see a different side to him.
Zelda was also my kind of character. She’s a self-proclaimed fangirl, and all of the mentions of Doctor Who and several other fandoms made me desperately want to rewatch those shows or movies. If only because I recalled exactly what she was talking about and it made me crave to watch it myself.
There is also a bit of an update on previous characters, which is much appreciated.
There were characters that I loved to hate and it gave me something to focus on. There were a couple of times that I wanted to smack Harrison because he was totally missing the obvious on purpose and that just frustrated me beyond belief.
The plot was easy to follow and didn’t have anything that was too crazy. No explosions or anything like that. The writing continued to impress me and was easy to read.
If you love rock star romances then you should definitely check out The Double Blind Study. I can’t really choose a favorite out of the series but Harrison is definitely towards the top!
