REVIEW ➞ Swoon by Lauren Rowe


Growing up, I knew my older brother’s best friend thought of me as “Logan’s kid sister.” For me, though, our next-door neighbor, Colin, felt like anything but a sibling. Whenever I spied on him through my bedroom window, as he banged away, shirtless, on his drum kit, I felt sensations inside me I’d never felt for my actual brother. But when we moved away and Colin’s band took off like a rocket, I knew my tweener fantasies would never become a reality.

Fast-forward nine years to my brother’s wedding, when I saw Colin again and we shared a secret, drunken kiss that rocked my world. The next morning, Colin blamed the alcohol. Said we should pretend the kiss, and my unfortunate text afterward, never happened.

Now that I’m heading to LA to work for Colin and crash at his place, though, all bets are off. I’m determined to make Colin swoon for me, the same way I’ve always done for him. Because no matter what he insisted, Colin’s body during our kiss, and the shocking thing he whispered into my ear right afterward, made it clear he doesn’t really think of me as his little sister, any more than I do.

“You’re allowed to keep dreaming and reaching for even higher stars, no matter how successful you’ve already been in life.”


This book had me swooning from page 1! I absolutely adored Colin and Amy from the start.

Colin and Amy grew up next door to each other, he is best friends with her older brother. They end up reuniting at Amy’s brothers wedding and from there things really start to change between them.

There is no shortage of chemistry between Colin and Amy. These two are heating up the pages anytime they are remotely close to each other. Their connection is electric from the start and only continues to grow stronger. I couldn’t get enough of them. Their history makes things complicated, but there is no denying that they are perfect for each other from the start.

From the wonderful soundtrack, to the insane amounts of chemistry and steam, to the characters from previous books popping in left and right, and of course Colin’s mom this story was addictive, swoony and beautiful.

If you’re looking for a best friends little sister, friends to lovers, rockstar romance this is one to read!
