Blurb: Lola Grant is the hottest pop star in Britain and she's about to go global. But behind the music, her addiction to bad boys is taking her personal life in a dangerous direction. When it comes to men, Lola just can't stay away from trouble - and her self-control is pushed to the limit when she meets her handsome new drummer Jake Hunter. 

Looking out for Lola is her best friend and manager Harvey Sparks. But Harvey's fighting his own demons and can only watch from the sidelines as the star he helped create begins to fall. When Lola seeks comfort in a life of wild partying, she meets good-hearted showbiz reporter Freddy Jones, a man who may just be able to offer her a way out.

But as she starts rehearsals for her Trouble tour, Lola finds herself faced with an even bigger threat. And unless someone can get through to her before opening night, she's in danger of losing everything she fought so hard for - in full view of the whole world. 

First of all I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: Have you ever wondered what goes behind the scenes in the glamorous music world? If so, this is the book for you. Lola Grant is about to become a major star and is promoting her album non-stop around Europe before she starts her mega tour that will catapult her where she never dreamed, among the BIG stars. But  her wild partying and her weakness for bad boys could jeopardize it all. As we follow her through her adventure, we soon discover what a complex character she is. Coming from a broken home, she is not your average pop star. She is always honest, says what she thinks and is full of insecurities. Which makes you root for her since the beginning.

But the story is not all about Lola, she always has people around her who try to make everything run smoothly for her, like her manager Harvey. He has his own story to tell and is probably my favourite character from the book, together with Freddy, the journalist who is supposed to expose Lola whenever he can but has a soft spot for her. I really loved reading about them and couldn't help cheering them. But not all of the characters surrounding Lola are there to support her, between her entourage, we soon discover the rivalry and jealousy also play main roles in the story and more than one would like to see Lola fall. And are ready to make everything in their hands to achieve it.

With the wide range of characters that Matt Cain presents in Nothing But Trouble, you certainly will find someone to love but also someone to hate. For me, it was Lola's new drummer, he was one of those characters you love hating, the ultimate womanizer, his tales about his latest conquests made my blood boil.

Apparently the saying Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll totally applies to Lola's world. And it makes for a very entertaining, sexy and sassy story. Perfect to enjoy during a summer holiday, you'll wish you were part of her world too, at least for a couple of days because I wouldn't recommend this level of craziness for too long. Only the ferocious and great Lola can handle it!
