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.
At A Glance
This is one of my favorite new adult series. I loved everything about this book. We get music, Comic-Con, and a shy, adorable hunk. More Than Comics starts not too far from where More Than Music ended. Hector is a member of the band Villain Complex, who is on tour with the other bands from the music reality show they got second place on. He illustrates for the comics Tara writes. After years of knowing each other only online, they finally meet at Comic-Con, while promoting their comics. Sparks fly, albeit shy sparks.
I am not much for the shy type, but Hector got me. He doesn’t like the spotlight but he would endure anything for Tara. He lacks in confidence but he’s good at faking it on stage. I loved how he wasn’t a bit tempted by groupies, his eyes were only for Tara. But he would never admit his affections, which was frustrating but kept me reading.
Tara is more outgoing and has her life planned out. But once she lays eyes on Hector, things in her life don’t seem as perfect. Because being with Hector is now what makes her happy. If only Hector would man up and sweep Tara off her feet. They both try to be realistic, being that Hector lives in LA and Tara is heading to another state for a new job. But chemistry is a fickle bitch.
I loved watching these two fall in love. There was an awkward beginning but by the end they fit really well together. It was fun getting a glimpse of Comic-Con too. I have yet to have the pleasure of going, but I know I have to one day.
The ending was fine, but on the dramatic side.
Loved Hector and Tara together. We get some good sex, but I wanted more! But I’m a pervert so I might be the only one that felt this way. It was probably enough for NA.
I loved this book. Great, diverse characters and a sweet love story. Who could ask for more? Very recommended.
“That was unusual. They always go for Jared, or sometimes Kyle. Never me.” He removed his Villain Complex hat and shoved it into his jeans, shaking his hair out. “Not sure I like the attention.”
“No? I thought every guy dreamed of scantily clad women inviting him for a threesome.”
He pinned me with his smoldering dark eyes. “Not this guy.”
“I never wanted to forget the way she’d looked in that moment. For a brief second I’d thought it possible she could love me back.”
