This is the story of Trevor Wolfe, bass player for the heavy metal group Shape Shifter, who is a very narcissistic character. If there is a problem with this story, and this is a minor one, is his attitude for the first half of the story became frustrating and tiring. It seemed Trevor would go to any length to piss off those close to him, without any redeeming characteristics.
When Shape Shifter's lead singer, guitarist, and best friend Mitchell begins dating Kerri, an artist who doesn't take any of Trevor's shit, I initially wondered who'd last the relationship, Kerri, or Trevor.
Here is why Ms. Gottfried's writing was so engaging. Kerri grows on Trevor making him reconsider the relationships he has with Mitchell, and begin his own amorous love, instead of the one night flings he's famous for. Although Trevor goes throughout the book attempting to maintain his adversarial relationship with Kerri, the reader learns how much he respects her and admires her for the person she is, and the wife she became to his best friend.
Ms. Gottfried does an excellent job of making this reader go from disliking Trevor, to caring about him. This change comes about gradually and naturally. Putting the reader so deeply into Trevor's, and occasionally Kerri's head, makes for a very engaging story I had a hard time putting down.
Despite my annoyance with Trevor, Gottfried's writing style made the story fun. Her familiarity with the music world brought vivid detail to the band's life. The dialogue and characters felt like I could have been reading the journal of a real-life young band.
About midway through the book, the story really got going. Trevor's challenges forced him to make difficult decisions that tamed his self-involved immaturity. In the end, Gottfried leaves the perfect opening for a sequel. I had a sense that all would be well and that Trevor had grown, though we might have to wait to know that for sure.
