Jack Carter has it made. Rich, famous, adored by millions…but deep down, the ghosts of his past just won’t let him go.
Sara has been in love with Jack Carter since he first exploded on to the music scene. Now she has the chance to meet the man of her dreams. She’s about to learn that her idol isn’t all that he seems.
When these two meet, sparks are going to fly….
I’ve never been that much into fangirling over real people, except maybe a few writers, so I expected to be unable to relate or like Front Man by Adora Bell. Surprisingly, I was wrong.
The story revolves around Jack, the front man of a band called Compass, and Sara, his biggest fan since the beginning of the group. The plot twist here is that Jack is not the typical arrogant, better-than-you rockstar but a man with doubts and issues. I liked that although considering his anxiety episodes I am not sure how he could handle the pressure of being in the spotlight all the time. Sara is, well, she is a girl with unrealistic expectations and questionable morals but hey, we all have our weaknesses.
In any case, up until the last pages the story was strong on a plotline. I had a distinguished idea, plot and characters. Even thought it is short it felt completed which I find lacking with many short stories. So I liked it, I liked it a lot. And even the sex scene was kind of nice, very passionate but also sweet. It has a bit of an open ending so we’ll see what will happen next, hopefully the story itself will conclude and tidy up rather nicely.
I’ll give it 3/5 rating. It was entertaining, Adora Bell‘s style is easy to read. I liked Jack, more than Sara even. The only thing that bugged me was the constant POV hopping in the middle of the chapter – and not just once.
What about you? What rating would you give? What are your thoughts and takes on Front Man?
