Review by Booklist Reviews

After his attempt to go solo with a Broadway show fails spectacularly, Matt Reed is hiding from the world. When several weeks pass and Matt is still being stalked by the press, he takes his best friend, Aaron, up on an offer for refuge and returns to his hometown in North Carolina. Although he'd vowed never to go back, it is the last place anyone would think to look for him. There he reconnects with Vivienne Forrester, Aaron's sister, whom Matt last saw when he was at another low point in his life. Vivienne is a food blogger who works from her home on Aaron's property, so when Aaron leaves for London, she and Matt find themselves spending a lot of time together. Life is starting to look a little brighter, but Matt still has nightmares about his father, and his career remains on hold. Vivienne has her own issues with her parents, and her relationship with Matt causes a rift with her brother, which could spell the end. The first book in Chase's Band on the Run series is a great introduction to an interesting group of characters. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

After bombing on Broadway, a rock star seeking redemption finds love in his hometown with his best friend's kid sister in Chase's (Love Walks In) first Band on the Run novel. The story's dramatic potential rests on a passionate kiss between Matt Reed and Vivienne Forrester; two years later, he's chalked it up to a boozy fantasy, but she recalls it with painful clarity. When Matt retreats to the North Carolina home of Aaron, Vivienne's brother, just as she is moving onto the property's guesthouse to live and work as a magazine's assistant editor, Vivienne is hostile and Matt has no idea why. But her expression of her feelings is so muted that it's surprising he noticed it at all, and when he remembers the kiss and the two begin to act upon their mutual attraction, what little drama exists in the narrative is left hinging on Matt's internal conflict, which might have been interesting had it been more thoroughly explained earlier on.
