#AlexFromTarget meets queer Prince Charming in this glittering romcom following a teen music prodigy and the handsome socialite who unwittingly turns him into an internet sensation.In a dingy Los Angeles club late one night, Cameron and Nate meet and find they have much more in common than their love of an obscure indie band. But when Nate learns that Cameron is the heir to a record label, the very one that destroyed his father's life, he runs away as fast as he can. The only evidence of their brief but intense connection is a blurry photo Cameron snaps of Nate's Sharpie-decorated Chuck Taylors as he flees. Considering that Cameron is a real life Prince Charming--he's handsome, famous, and rich--it's only fitting that he sets out to find the owner of the Sharpied shoes. Cameron's twin sister, a model and socialite, posts the picture of Nate's shoes on Instagram to her legions of fans with the caption, "Anyone know the gorgeous owner of these shoes? My hottie brother is looking for him." The internet just about breaks with the news of a modern fairy tale and the two become entwined in each other's lives in this sparkling story about the power of music, the demons that haunt us, and the flutterings of first real love....

Sometime After Midnight Reviews
I liked this book overall. What I especially appreciated was a gay book that had nothing to do with BEING GAY. No one had a problem with the main characters being gay, they had no anxiety about being gay themselves; it was just another aspect of their lives and nothing more. And that is so refreshing to read.
The story of two musicians finding their missing piece in each other was also great, as was the mystery of Nate's father's death and how Cam's family (his own father, in particular) may have ...more
4.5 stars: Apart from the fact that their first conversation happens during a slow song at a concert (there's a special ring in hell for people who talk loudly during a ballad), this was super cute! A slow burn romance! So many music references! A fun cover and a great twist on Cinderella!
Review to come, but that was delightful
This was darling. I loved the music discussions, whether about great existing bands or the way playing makes you feel, and the characters are so darn loveable! Completely enjoyed this one.
This book was exactly what I needed it to be; fun, some tears but overall a book that kept me smiling throughout. The music theme (and lyrics) in the book made it stand out a bit from the other YA books that I have been reading lately. Nate and Cameron's relationship is pretty damn adorable as well...I can't lie but I cried both happy and sad tears during the book because of them.
Thanks to Penguin for the ARC!
This was the perfect "Cinderfella" novel that I didn't know I wanted! I didn't really know what to expect with this read and I'm happily pleased with it.
This was a cute and fun read but actually incorporated quite a bit of heavy content. Prior to reading this novel, I had predicted that this would be an emotional read thinking that it would be a coming out story. That actually was not the emotional part because these characters were both actively out. I don't know why but I actually really enjo ...more
A super fun, modern retelling of Cinderella with a touch of Romeo and Juliet. When Nate meets the cute boy at the night club, he doesn't realize that it is Cameron Pierce, heir to the Pierce music dynasty. Nate always blamed Cameron's father for the destruction of his own father's musical career. As Nate runs from the scene, Cameron snaps a quick picture of Nate's sharpie decorated high tops. When Cameron's twin sister posts the picture online, the hunt for Nate begins. Told in alternating voice ...more
