With my twin sister by my side in our indie-rock duo, Singed Wings, we were ready to finally see our name in lights when we opened for the hottest act to sell out stadiums – Jobu’s Rum Summer Reunion Tour.
The life I’d always wanted was finally within my reach. All I had left to do was finish out my last semester of high school.
But there was one problem: Ms. Sloan, the new art history teacher.
The same Ms. Sloan I’d met as Belle, the sexy little pixie who’d captivated me at a New Year’s Eve concert last year.
The same Ms. Sloan who’d owned nearly every one of my thoughts since that night.
The same Ms. Sloan whose class I was in danger of failing.
With my dream gig dangling just on the other side of that cap and gown, all of my focus should’ve been on my school work and improving my music as I prepared for my big shot to rock the world…
But I never expected her to rock mine first… and to change everything.
Everything is a standalone novel. It is a spin-off from the Book Boyfriend Series.
This book showed up as a suggestion on my Facebook page. I’ve never read anything else by this author and the blurb described it as the story of Everett, a hot virgin rock star who falls for his high school teacher, Belle. Initially I was put off by Everett’s age, but I decided I just had to at least attempt a book that tried to cover so many themes.
Everett has a great relationship with his family and twin-sister. His father has arranged an opportunity for him and his sister to go on tour as the opening act for his very successful and famous band as soon as they graduate. Everett has dreams of a career in music, he’s quiet, introverted and worried about doing anything that will affect his future. He’s determined to keep his head down and stay out of trouble until he can get finish high school and get on the road. His plans are derailed when he meets Belle during a gig at his family owned bar. She’s new in town, getting settled after a bad breakup up, and their chemistry is instant and undeniable.
Imaginary lightning cracked overhead in the cloudless, star-dusted sky we stared at each other. Intense is too mild a word to describe the electric charge that buzzed inside of me as if tiny needles prickled my skin from head to toe.
Everett is young and sometimes you can really see it in his personality; I thought of him like an alpha male in training. He took control, knew what he wanted and he wasn’t going to take no for an answer. I felt his age and selfishness really showed when he was determined to convince Belle that she shouldn’t try to deny their chemistry. For someone so consumed with his own career and success he didn’t seem to think seriously about how hers would be ruined if anyone found out about them. She sacrificed much more for him but he jumped to conclusions over and over about Belle’s relationship with other men and then instead of communicating with her through a temper tantrum.
The veins in Dad’s neck pulsed and his dark brows bunched together, his menacing glare speaking a thousand words. ‘Obviously, something’s happened between you and Belle that’s what’s gotten you so worked up that you’ve forgotten who you are and who the hell is still in charge around here, so I’m going to forgive you for that outburst just once,” he said his voice low and intimidating”
The threat of discipline from Everett’s dad, Mason was a big fat reminder that Everett was still a kid who didn’t have a grasp on being in an adult relationship.
All that being said, I liked Everett a lot more than I liked Belle. He was sweet and simple whereas Belle could come across as immature and indecisive.
I’d consider this book to be a teacher/ student romance more than anything else. The male-virgin and rock star parts kind of seemed kind of like they were mentioned in passing simply to make the book more taboo. While the plot of this book left something to be desired for me I’d definitely give more books by Erin Noelle a chance. Her descriptions of the chemistry between Everett and Belle were detailed and very poet. If you’re looking for a taboo read with a HEA pick up Everything, or try out Erin Noelle’s Boyfriend series which tells the story of Everett and Ashlyn’s parents.
