Cait’s ARC Review of “Wylder and the Rising Rockstar” by Michelle MacQueen and Ann Maree Craven

How much trouble does it take to save a rock star’s career after an epic scandal?

None, because even Wylder Anderson—troublemaker extraordinare—can’t work miracles. 

The world now knows the famous Cook twin doesn’t sing his own songs. 

And now Luke has disappeared. 

Which wouldn’t be a problem for Wylder except she’s grown quite fond of the boy who does care. All Logan wants is to find his brother, to make sure he’s okay. 

And all Wylder wants is for Logan to forgive her for a single unthinkable act. 

One little lie. 

One girl trying to do the right thing. 

A hidden rock star wishing it would all go away. 

And a boy on the brink of losing everything. 

These Cook boys might be the death of the old Wylder, but maybe it’s time for a new Wylder to emerge.


*I received a free advanced copy of this book from the authors for my honest review.

This is the third book in The Reluctant Rockstars trilogy, and I absolutely loved it. These books do need to be read in order, so it’s hard to say too much without spoiling the earlier two. However, I was very happy with this finale.

I didn’t want this story to end. I adore this world Michelle and Anne Maree have created. It’s so easy to get sucked into the drama and fun-but-moving romances. It was amazing getting to see characters from their older series throughout these books.

Wylder and the Cook brothers were all written and developed really well. Even the identical twins had their distinct tones and personalities. Seeing them all grow together and overcome the messes they got into throughout the series was great. The books were a lot of fun, with so much snark and teasing to fill my heart, but there were also serious undertones and emotions that felt very relatable.

The only thing I wish was that I got more of is Wylder’s roommate, Devyn, and their friend Will. This is the second series that takes place at Defiance Academy, and Will has always been this side character who’s a friend but not super involved in their group. I feel like he has a lot of secrets and stuff on his mind, so hopefully, we get more in this world and finally figure out what his deal is. Same with Devyn.

I highly recommend this series, as well as the other two, Redefining Me and Discovering Me. If you like YA/NA clean romance, extremely lovable characters, and fun but meaningful storylines, you will enjoy these!
