"Whelp, guess she's screwed."

That's what Dominic murmured as he threw me a frosty look before ambling downstairs. 

I stared at Rocco for a minute, expecting the same treatment, but he had other ideas. Ideas that led him right into the bathroom where he trapped me against the sink.

Gasping, I jerked back, the edge of the counter digging into my waist. "What're you-?" He pressed forward, and the hand I'd thrown up in defense landed on his broad chest. Hazel eyes smoldering, Rocco grinned and I forgot how to make words.


It's not every day sixteen year old Misery Hayes finds a rock band full of pretty boys on her door step. 

Actually, it's not every day Misery Hayes interacts with humans. Being named after an emotion Merriam-Webster defined as "extreme suffering" or "unhappiness" tended to make one a loner.

Well, sort've.

You see: Enid Conception Diaz, Youtube sensation and Misery's best friend, has sold her Tuesday afternoons to Blue Vendetta; an extremely popular alternative rock band consisting of one moody lead singer, one tease of a guitarist, one amiable bassist, and the world's most unstable drummer.

Can Blue Vendetta help Misery open up?

Or will she prove whoever said "misery loves company" horribly wrong?

                              Aw Rocco is a really likable character :')) There were a lot of humorous lines that I enjoyed, except they were a little sudden (I'm guessing because they're her emotional reactions?)

Can i get some sour patch kids? Rocco would you throw a rock or stick at Misery? Enid, more like "I needn't ask my friend for her blessing". Haha I'll stop now
