Book Review of the Band by Marguerite

About the book

Marguerite is on holiday in London, finally free after 27 years of feeling like a hostage to her strict and overbearing parents. Also in London, and struggling with his thoughts of freedom, is Chase Martin one fourth of the most successful band on the planet who knows that freedom can only come at the expense of his band-mates. They come from completely different worlds, but when those worlds collide on a rainy night in a small coffee shop nothing will ever be the same again. Before ever laying eyes on him, his pain and anxiety somehow reaches her, and she feels moved to alleviate it... to offer comfort, which he desperately needs. After years of performing with his band-mates, they are closer than brothers. They are a part of one another, and the compulsion he is feeling to separate from them, is tearing him apart. The strange bond Marguerite and Chase discover goes beyond attraction or desire. It goes beyond love or lust or anything either of them have ever experienced. It is absolutely terrifying, but to walk away from its pull would be like choosing not to breathe. This is a story of love, loss and heart-break... of family and friendship. This is their story."

My review

The elegance and beauty in which the story is written is one of its kinds. I loved the subtle nature of the storyline. The progress of the story is pretty smooth and one will fall in love with the descriptions of a scenario by the author.

What I loved the most about the book was that the author has left nothing to chance and has detailed out every inch of the story so elegantly that it makes the book a perfect novel in the romance genre.

Talking about the story plot, Chase and Marguerite are in love with each other and since their very first meet they had what is called as love at first sight. The love couple from the very first moment were attracted towards each other as if it was a something that was meant to happen one day or the other. They are in fact so close that they can feel what the other person is feeling or wants. And that is exactly what you want in a relationship.

With a few twists and turns about what may happen if they lose each other and what the uncertainty of what the future holds makes the storyline awesome and I had a great time reading the book.
