"After every tough climb to the top, there's a descent. Sometimes, it's real easy, just a matter of sliding down feet first.

What I Think….
I bought Doll Face a few months ago, with every intention of reading it then. However, as it usually happens, life got in the way and I didn’t get around to it until yesterday. Man, could I kick myself! Not only was the book full of twists and turns, it really set the stage for what’s to come with group. This story focuses on Lola Saints and Ronnie McGuire; two drummers who just so happen to have fallen in love. Stunich covers their struggle, their heartache, their accomplishments, and their redemption.
Lola Saints has been put in a difficult position. Not only is her sister very much alive, but she’s also part of the people set out to destroy Indecency and Amatory Riot, two of the most popular rock bands of all time. With all the chaos, Lola knows she can only depend on one person: Ronnie McGuire. When things go left after their last stop on tour, Lola begins to understand what true love really is and how much must be sacrificed to keep it.
Ronnie McGuire only cares about two things: Lola Saints and music. If they aren’t a part of the equation, neither is he. So when the band takes a fatal hit, Ronnie has to choose which way he is going to turn. Without Lola, Turner, Trey, Josh, Dax, Sydney, and Naomi, life wouldn’t be worth living. But it’s high time he starts making some mature decisions. He just has to make sure Lola is with him every step of the way.
Now, I can’t stress how much I loved this book! If you’ve been following the Hard Rock Roots Series, you’ll notice that things are starting to become a little more permanent and a lot less chaotic for the group. This was an easy read *I finished it in 3 hours* and has such an interesting story line. If you haven’t read the series, pick up Real Ugly at your nearest retail store, you won't be able to put it down!
