Read my Book Review
Release Date: July 28, 2019
Genre: YA Romance (Musicians)
Ginger Scott is known for writing complex characters, intriguing story lines, and irresistible love stories. Drummer Girl encompasses all of this and more. From the start I was HOOKED on Arizona and Jesse's story. I loved these characters for their flaws and all. They aren't perfection personified, rather they are realistic and have issues that are recognized within the story. Ginger Scott moved me with her words, wooed me with this story line, and made me get all the feels! I love a story that can cause goosebumps on the skin and this one did just that!
While this one was clearly different from the other books Ginger writes (she has written many sports romances within the YA genre) it is an absolute gem! I am so happy that she wrote something a little different because I found the book to be wholly unique.
Based on all this, I would highly recommend this one. Ginger Scott is an amazing writer and I am always excited when she releases something new.
Read an Excerpt
Drummer Girl, Copyright Ginger Scott 2019
“That’s the first time I’ve played that song. I like it. We should add it to our set,” he says, pulling the strap from around his neck before setting his guitar at the foot of his bed. “What do you think?”
He twists so our knees are touching and our shoulders are squared.
“I think you’re a showoff, one. And two…I totally think we should close with that at our gig. People love retro shit like that at shows.” I don’t really know what people like at shows because the only kinds I’ve ever been to have been for high school marching nerds or jazz geeks. I probably don’t even deserve to utter the word gig yet. I’m a gig virgin. I do know movies, though, and if this life was a movie, our band would close with that.
Jesse’s eyes linger on my face, making me warm.
“Okay then,” he says, finally. “And I’m not a showoff.”
His lips pucker with his smirk and mine follow suit until a laugh seeps through.
“You so are!” I shove at him playfully, and his hands wrap around my wrists and shove back gently but don’t let go.
“No, I’m a great example. That’s a totally different thing,” he says, pulling me toward his chest until my fingertips meet the hard surface of his pecs under a well-worn white T-shirt.
“I’m pretty sure it’s just a synonym for showoff how you’re using it. In fact, now you’re just being arrogant!” I gripe back through laughter, a wry smile playing at one side of my mouth. Jesse remains quiet, though. His head leaned a tick to the right. My lips vibrate with this sudden change in atmosphere, and without even helping myself, I bite my bottom lip. There is just enough light in the room to see these small things we’re doing, these…signs. At least, I’m giving a sign. I hope I’m not imagining Jesse’s.
At least three full breaths pass between us without words. I count mine, and I guess how many he takes because really, I can’t see much beyond the dark centers of his eyes and the top curl of his lip. I wait for him. Even though I’m dizzy and happy and excited, I don’t want to be eager and desperate. I wait for him to move closer…to do something.
I wish for him.
“Would it be okay if I kissed you now?”
