Publisher's Summary

Franco Genovese is the drummer for world-renowned American rock band Rook. He's got it all. A killer smile. Tattoos. Talent. Razor-sharp wit and humor. And a heart as big, and generous, as they come. Life is good. Steady. Uncomplicated. Just the way he likes things. Until one night at an unassuming L.A. bar changes everything.

Enter Gemma Hendricks. She's a successful young architect from Northern England with an adorable smile, sarcasm for days, and an unparalleled trusting heart. The attraction is instant. So is their friendship. It's also temporary because they'll both be heading home, thousands of miles apart from each other, in a few days. Or is it?

There's something Gemma wants more than anything else. And when Franco propositions her to provide what she's looking for, everything changes. Will it transform friendship into love, or will it be their ruin?

    "Franco's story made my heart happy!"

    I loved Franco's story so much! I knew he was a good guy but this book just showed how great he was. I found this story to be a little predictable but that's ok because it still made my heart happy even if I knew what was coming. The Bright Side, Gus, Franco world is so full of good-hearted people who deserve nothing but great in their lives. During the epilogue I found myself a little sad because Kate wasn't there is see how happy everyone is and to meet all the new people that would have been in her life. I know... I know it's a book but it just hit me so hard I can't help but think of them as real.

    The narration of this book didn't work for me. I love Jeremy York and his narration but I do not think he was a good choice for Franco. He made Franco seem a little to wimpy and emotional with his soft spoken voices. I think Franco needed to be a little more rough sounding like Gus was. I still gave it 5 stars for narration because he is a good narrator it wasn't him, just more about casting.

    Story
    "A rebound from Gus."

    I have to be honest that Bright Side is one of my favorite books ever and when Gus came out I was so excited, and then I was kind of let down. I liked Gus, but it was kind of predictable and a little too scripted after the typical romance for me, but Franco was a come back for me. I liked that some of the humor from Bright Side was back and it was a little less of a patterned romance. The wit and sarcasm of these characters were great and I'm glad I finally listened to this. Jeremy York is an awesome narrator and made a great Franco.

    "Jeremy York is NOT Franco"
    What did you love best about Franco?

    The story is great from start to finish in typical Kim Holden fashion!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Franco is every bit the silly, flirty, easy going rock star we've all come to love and Kim captures his personality expertly. This narrator however, sounds like an uncool, middle aged creeper and it completely throws off the entire story. All the fun vibes and playful banter we got from Rook in the previous books are dead. Jeremy York isn't a bad narrator, he's just bad for this book


    Any additional comments?

    Narration can make or break a story! I highly recommend avoiding the audiobook and reading the kindle or print version instead. The story is amazing, Kim Holden is amazing, Franco is amazing.

    "great listen
    "

    this book is special, the man on the cover sounds like the words in the book. I am believing that men portrayed in books like these really exist. it is worth the credit and cost.

    enjoy

    "Such a great addition to the Bright Side books!"

    I LOVED Franco's journey. I was completely consumed in this story and adored Gemma. Their story was sweet, sad and absolutely grand! As I listened to the narrator, I found myself smiling as to what was going on in the story and many times I laughed out loud! This story was one I easily found myself lost in and I'm kicking myself for not having listened before now. Rook is still one of my favorite bands and it was awesome seeing things through Franco's eyes.

    Story
    "Sadly Each Book Gets Worse"

    Bright Side was heartbreaking and beautiful. Gus when from tragic to formulaic. Franco never gets interesting. I kept wanting it to come to life. It was disappointing from word one. Her departure from the two person narrative was disappointing. I think the story would have been interesting had she kept with the previous form. I truly hope that when she comes around to Keller again her slide will not continue.
