Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favorite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.

I have been loving books about bands and music lately, so I am very excited for Love Songs & Other Lies. I am excited about the battle of the bands reality show and the road trip aspects. What is interesting about this book is the fact that the main character isn’t in the band, but an intern. This story sounds like it’s going to be super cute yet super angsty, and I can’t wait until the spring to give it a read!

    I like the band angle in this — and you’re right, it is interesting that the MC isn’t a main character. I’m curious to hear how the author pulls this all together.
