One girl’s heart gets rocked to the core in the first novel in this sexy New Adult series.
Twenty-one-year-old front girl Emmylou knows that getting her band noticed in the ‘90s indie rock scene will be no easy task. She definitely knows better than to break the number one rule of the band: Don't sleep with your bandmates! But after she ends up having the best sex of her life with her guitarist, Travis, she finds following that rule is a lot harder than it sounds.
When the band gets the gig of their dreams, making it big seems just within reach. But Emmy’s inability to keep her hands off Travis threatens everything they’ve worked for. Can Emmy find a way to break the rules and not blow the chance of a lifetime?

Book Review: 4 stars
Loud is How I Love You was a very good book. It was well paced, well written, and it was very accurate to the time it was set—The 90’s. Last year when Nina Bocci sent the invite to review this book, it came with a HUGE recommendation from Christina Lauren and I said YES! Not only because of the enticing blurb, but because I trust in Christina Lauren’s taste in books, and they were right by saying this book was “Full of soul, wit and seduction.”
This is the story of Emmy and Travis. They were bandmates and best friends. They met 2 years ago in college right when Emmy was looking to add a new guitarist to her band SOFT—Stars on The Floor. So, one night one thing lead to the other and they ended up having the best sex in the world and that’s when all the drama begun. Emmy wanted Travis, and Travis wanted her, but… SOFT had one rule: Do Not Have Sex With a Bandmate. So they tried to stay away from each other, but they failed miserably and right after every time they had sex, more drama happened, courtesy of Emmylou—the most annoying and immature girl in the world, UGH!… Well, at least that was what I thought of her half of the book, but at the end I finally understood why she kept doing what she was doing and I’m sure I’d have done the same.
This book had a great plot, it was easy, sexy and fun—except for the parts when I wanted to strangle Emmy, but don’t mind me, I’m sure you’ll love it so much. I loved all the characters, especially Travis. He was so sweet and had the patience of a saint. He also was very talented and did a great duo with Emmy. I also loved the other bandmates of them and I’m happy because Cole will be the main character in the next book along with Sonia, Emmy’s roommate. I will sure read that one as well.
Great read, great story, great music and LONG LIVE THE 90’S!
Note: This book counts for my Reading Challenge 2016 as the book that takes place during summer
