Review: Rock and a Hard Place by Angie Stanton

Released: May 3, 2011
Publisher: Angie Stanton
Rated: YA
Buy: Amazon
One day while watching the Interstate exit for her dad’s long awaited return, Libby’s life is rocked when Peter Jamieson steps off his tour bus and into her life. After a couple chance meetings with Peter, Libby shifts from her perfect behavior and breaks rules to find out more about him. Peter longs for normalcy away from the screaming fans who know nothing about the real him. He is amazed to discover Libby has never heard of him or his band. Soon their friendship turns to love. Peter battles his families growing interference to spend time with Libby, while she struggles with her eccentric aunt who turns more bizarre each day. Their lives are torn apart when Peter's family interferes and Libby disappears. Peter’s desperate search for her comes up empty. Can they find their way back to each other while the world plots against them?

What I thought

This was a bit more emotional that I expected it to be. Libby seems to be in such a dark place after a tragedy and is waiting for her father to come back and rescue her from her crazy aunt.

I was glad to see that she got to meet Peter and she didn't know who he was or his family. I was so mad at his brother for doing what he did and not only ruining things for Peter, but making some huge changes for Libby. Things don't go well for Libby and while it was hard to see, I'm glad she was able to take things in stride after a few huge life changes.

We get to see things from both Libby and Peter and I really liked to see his side after Libby disappears and he's unable to track her down. While I still wanted to punch his brother in the face (he's probably just laugh has I break my hand on his face), I'm glad Peter is unwilling to just let go like his entire family wants him to.

I really enjoyed this story. I really liked the darker side to it than most of the other YA romances I have read. It's finitely worth the read and I'm looking forward to learning more about the author.
