As Rock Fiction gets more popular, I bet we’re going to be seeing more of this: books that are part of a series but only one here or there is Rock Fiction even though the series itself isn’t. “A smattering,” Susan would say.

I say bring it.

Today’s coveting (Yo, Trolls: that means I wanna read it) is one of those. Which I’m sure you guessed because if it wasn’t, why write that intro?

Here goes:

Aaron Seavers is a pathetic mess, and he knows it. He lives in terror of incurring his father’s wrath and disappointing his mother, and he can’t stop dithering about where to go to college—with fall term only weeks away. Ditched by a friend at a miserable summer farewell party, all he can do is get drunk in the laundry room and regret he was ever born. Until a geeky-cute classmate lifts his spirits, leaving him confident of two things: his sexual orientation, and where he’s headed to school.

Giles Mulder can’t wait to get the hell out of Oak Grove, Minnesota, and off to college, where he plans to play his violin and figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. But when Aaron appears on campus, memories of hometown hazing threaten what he’d hoped would be his haven. As the semester wears on, their attraction crescendos from double-cautious to a rich, swelling chord. But if more than one set of controlling parents have their way, the music of their love could come to a shattering end.

A violin? What happened to guitars? Drums? Emo screaming?

Yeah, well, music is music and violins can make some damn good Rock Fiction. Just ask Lindsey Sterling and Lzzy Hale. Maybe it ain’t fiction but that? That is Rock and Roll with a violin.

Besides, we know Rock Fiction is a catch-all phrase. It ain’t even ours, so don’t come whining to me.

So now that we got this out of the way, let’s talk about the plot. Lots of musical references in here, so I’m hoping this means music plays a big role in the story, especially because it’s a male-male and you guys know those aren’t my favorites.

Bring it. I want to know about that violin and the role it plays.
