Written by Thompson Square and Travis Thrasher. Inspired by the hit song, Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?
I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
When I first saw this title on NetGalley before I saw who wrote it I was thinking, aw someone ripped off the title of Thompson Square’s song, lol. Then I realized they wrote the book and I had to read it. I have loved the song since I first heard it.
If you’ve never heard of Thompson Square before – check them out! I’m a huge fan of music and love books written about singers and songwriters so this book really appealed to me.
The book was about two young people that met in high school and after many missed chances finds the love in each other that had been right in front of the all along. Sometimes you’ve got to make all the wrong choices before you make the right one and that’s what I think this book was about. The idea behind the book was good but for most of the story the characters both seemed stuck.
This was one of those books that jump from current to high school and back so you have to pay attention. This isn’t my favorite format but it was clearly marked so you knew what time frame you were in. There were a few things that stood out in the timelines that didn’t quite add up and it seemed to switch from third person to first person which was rather frustrating.
I liked the book and read it in a few hours. The cover was really nicely done. The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and is available June 4, 2013.
Daniel and Casey were an unlikely couple back in high school when they came together to write music for a school event. Struggling against their differences, they dated during college, but their relationship never seemed quite right. Yet despite their personal conflict, as songwriters they had undeniable chemistry—and several hit songs. Eventually they went their own ways, both trying to make it in the music world and find true love.
Years later, both Daniel and Casey are at rock bottom, still trying to find success. But when they connect again as old friends, they realize that what they needed was right in front of them all along: each other.
From Thompson Square, a married twosome who knows a little something about what it’s like to overcome years of struggle in the music business and find love, Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not? is a charming and humorous love story about coming of age, knowing where you belong, and finding the perfect person to share life with.
