Sydney Peters can’t wait to finally drop the cymbals in marching band and devote time to her true love: drums. With the semester coming to a close, she’s blocking out the cacophony during practice, especially sax serenades from Hunter Reed. But when Hunter offers her a paid gig as a drummer in his band, Sydney quickly changes her tune. The two favor different styles, but they make beautiful music together…in more ways than one.
Hunter is fascinated by Sydney’s distant allure. He might be a ladies’ man on campus, but the sarcastic cymbalist is impervious to his advances. When Hunter sees how passionate Sydney is behind the drums, he orchestrates a plan to find out if she kisses like she plays. What he doesn’t anticipate, however, is falling so hard. But will the repercussions of his past crash down on his chance at something real?

3.5 Stars rounded. One day… at band camp …. Shannyn Schroeder just makes me smile. I know that I’ll find at least one character to love, a touch of steam, plenty of humor and some wonderful conversation. Sydney is a cymbal player in the school’s band, but she really wants to take her love of the drums to the next level by playing them. She’s got that whole ‘sarcastic at arm’s length’ attitude happening, and doesn’t, not for one moment, want to pay attention to Hunter. Hunter is THE guy on campus, drool-worthy, charming and a saxophone player. While all that works on the other girls, the one he wants to sit up and take notice might as well have yawned in his face. So – the connection of music and Hunter’s fascination with Sydney had the potential to make this a home run. Unfortunately, Hunter’s past and rather cavalier attitude toward his many conquests had me leaning to Sydney to both show some sense and not make this easy for him. Fortunately, she did just that by setting up a series of rules and challenges for him. He’s not exactly a careless player – he does have goals and ambition, but his laid back attitude did often appear to be carelessness. However, his determination and willingness to jump through every hoop that Sydney held up showed her and I that he really wanted to get to know her. Schroeder’s writing is tight and smooth, and her dialogue is wonderful…. I just wanted a bit more growth earlier for Hunter to really have me believing in their relationship. Still, a good story with plenty of moments to make you smile. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Band Nerds Unite! No, really.... Shannyn Schroeder has done it to me again! His New Jam is the 5th novel in Ms. Schroeder's Hot & Nerdy series. It is full length, has an HEA and no cliffhanger. It is told from a first person POV between the two main characters. It can be read as a standalone, but for optimal enjoyment with the last three books in this series, I would suggest starting with the fourth book. They all interconnect without actually needing to be read to understand them, it just makes it more fun if you do! I loved this story from the get go. Was in I band? Yes! Was I in marching band? No. However, the writing, and the story line within are engrossing. You get pulled into the world, and it will make sense for you. One of my favorite things about this book? How Hunter and Sydney meet. I was beyond amused and laughing at Hunter's antics. This guy is full on trying to get one particular girl's attention and he doesn't give up about it. He's been trying for awhile too! The chemistry between the pair simmered, but it's no so overt that that you lose the story to just that. They completely clash at first. Sydney wants nothing to do with Hunter. It's sort of a tug-of-war between them, a back-and-forth. Hunter wanting Sydney's attention, Sydney alternatively just wanting him to go away. You'll also come to enjoy the co-characters within this book and want to learn about them. Which is great, because they have their own books! Overall, it's a great read, that isn't too long. Engaging characters with a fun story line, and parts that will have you laughing out loud. It will also have you wanting to know how it ends. I've given it a full 5 stars.

Syndey was 21 and in a marching band. She played the drum symbols, but what she actually wanted to play was a real drum. All Sydney wanted to do was play drums in a real band but she stayed in college so she wouldn't let her dad down. This was an excellent story. I read most of it in one sitting. To see the changes Sydney went through to at least trust someone who really cared for her. I loved the characters, the plot and the overall story. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

Shannyn Schroeder has another awesome addition to her hot and nerdy series. This is the fifth book in the series and overlaps with His Work of Art (book 4). This story is about how Hunter and Sydney find their way to each other. Sydney is a talented percussionist who frustrated by sexism in the marching band. Hunter, who plays saxophone, tries to flirt with her by playing different songs while she enters or leaves the field during practice. Sydney knows he a player, but she mostly ignores him and keeps her head down. At the end of the marching season, Hunter manages to get a reaction from Sydney that their friendship/relationship progresses from their. Sydney is wary of romance and make Hunter work for her attention. Will he be able to convince her to give him a chance to be more than band mates? This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite new adult series. Ms. Schroeder is able to create complex realistic characters that are fun to read about. I have read at least one of the previous books, and was able to see the same event from a different perspective. I loved the characters, the music and almost everything about this book. I look forward to the next. I was given a free copy for an honest review by netgalley.com
