Melissa Parker’s secret is out.
Now that the entire world knows she’s dating Sam Morneau, Mel suddenly finds herself and her relationship under the intense scrutiny of celebrity gossip bloggers, curious fans, and appropriately concerned family members.
But then, that’s nothing compared to the other secrets and scandals that plague The Kind of September. In the midst of their long-anticipated world tour, a toxic combination of infidelity and betrayal has left the band and its fan base angry, confused, and ultimately broken.
No one ever said that life with the world’s most popular boy band was easy, but in spite of everything she’s seen, Mel is still willing to believe that it’s worth it.

I am such a huge fan of The Kind of September!
WORLDWIDE focuses on the downside of fame: rumors, gossip, crazed fans, and the not-so-nice hashtags trending on twitter. The tension between the guys is palpable and the band is falling apart. But, amidst all the drama, the show must go on!
And of course now that the world knows that Sam and Mel are dating, she too is thrown into the spotlight. Poor Mel! Fame brings its own problems regarding relationships and falling in love. Dating a high-profile band member puts Mel in the public eye of a lot of jealous fans! Her family is (justifiably) worried.
Despite the drama that surrounds them – the romance between Mel and Sam is super sweet. I love them as a couple!
I’ve mentioned it before but I love how Author Jacqueline E. Smith includes the band’s song lyrics in her writing. The lyrics are beautiful and I can almost hear the band playing in my head when I read her poetry. It’s such a nice touch.
The characters are so lovable. I enjoyed all the witty dialogue between the characters. Sam Morneau is literally laugh-out-loud funny! I just love the band conversations between the guys.
And the villain I love to hate is back – I won’t say much more, but whoa… it’s a whopper!
This series is a MUST for music lovers. Highly recommended!
