They're friends online—but can they be more in real life?
Writer Tara McFadden has been friends with artist and drummer Hector Fernandez for years, long before his band became famous on reality TV—yet they’ve never met in person. They finally have a chance to connect offline when they’re both sent to Comic-Con to promote the graphic novel they collaborated on.
Hector's secretly been in love with Tara for as long as he can remember, and once they meet, she sees him in a new light. All the years of longing lead to an incredible night of passion after one of his concerts, but neither is sure if their online relationship can translate into a real life romance—or if this will ruin their friendship forever.
Over four crazy days at Comic-Con, Hector and Tara must decide if they want a future together. But when their story seems to be over, it’s up to Hector’s entire band to make sure he and Tara get their happy ending.

Let me start with a premise, I love comics and I’ve always wanted to go to Comic-Con. I visited San Diego once but didn’t attend the convention of my dreams, so you can imagine my excitement about reading a book with that setting. Add to this someone like Hector and the excitement becomes pleasure!

What I loved the most was the fact that Hector and Tara had been ‘virtual’ friends for years and also built a very strong partnership, which gave them the chance to finally meet in person for the very first time at Comic-Con. How about that for a super-special date encounter? And while the chemistry between those two made the read hot, the rest of the band entertained with their teasing and a certain supermarket game . . . I swear, it totally cracked me up! I also loved having a double POV (something not present in the previous instalments), it was just the pace that didn’t convince me. I get that the story needed to be said in the space of four days and that the characters already knew each other quite well, but I still felt like something went too fast after the first half of the book.

Overall, I think this instalment was a nice addition to the series and I can say that I definitely fell a bit for each of those guys. Indeed, music stories can rock your reads!

  1. I haven't read the previous books, I kinda jumped in with this one. I mean, how can you not read a book about a graphic novel writer and her illustrator meeting up for the first time at comic-con. I loved this book but I think I was just so excited that it was all set at comic-con, a place where I've been dying to go. So I sort of overlooked the fast paced romance.

    Oh I love the comic and con related books. 🙂 Sounds good.

    Oh! I know of a book right now that is free on Kindle. It's Gaming for Keeps by Seleste DeLaney. It's about a woman meeting a guy at a convention. 🙂 You should check it out, if you haven't already. 🙂 …

  3. It is good and so is this series!

    I remember the book you mentioned because of your review, Melissa 🙂 Thanks for letting me know about the special offer, I've just took advantage of it! 😉

    I love it when a story is set somewhere I've been (or want to go 😉 Silvia. More Than Comics sounds like a fun read and I'm glad it was a good addition to the series. I'm just sorry that pacing was a bit off. That can absolutely detract from a story. Great review!
