Review: His New Jam (Hot & Nerdy) by Shannyn Schroeder

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?

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is November 24th, 2015**

This is part of the Hot & Nerdy series by Schroeder.  I believe this may be number 5.  I read the first in the series Her Best Shot (review here) however I have not read any of the ones in between.  No need to worry, you are not missing any plot points by reading out of order.  I do believe that this story runs in parallel to the fourth one however as mentioned, no impact.

If you like your stories to come with a high steam factor than this is a good choice.  Not only is the story fairly short, the characters also have good chemistry and you know where things are going to lead pretty darn quick.  There are no surprise plot twists in this one.

Also don't worry.  Although the series is Hot and Nerdy, they are more on the hot side.  Which makes me wonder at the series.  Is it because they are in marching band?  Yes that is not a highly sought after pastime however not sure if it makes someone nerdy.  I define Nerdy by personality traits as opposed to pastimes/hobbies.  I mean I do jigsaw puzzles which is kind of a nerdy hobby but I definitely don't think I would be characterized as a nerd.  Maybe I can be featured in the next story?

Regardless this is the kind of story you want to indulge in when you are not looking for a book that requires commitment and you want a little bit of chemistry and steam.  This fits the bill.
