    First and foremost, I m impressed that the author decided to write in a different format That she followed her passion, and inspiration, and that she stepped outside her comfort zone to write this book And I must admit she did a great job.Fast Lane, as Daisy Jones The Six, was written for most of the book in interview format But whereas Taylor Jenkins Reid jumped between many different interviewee POVs, KA focused on two main characters to tell the story about Lyla and Preacher.

    It s hard to review a book from a favorite author when you feel like there is no real draw to the characters on the page It s hard to review a book you didn t truly care for but that kept you reading through the night It s wishful reading You keep hoping something will make you love the story but it sadly never happens If you follow the author on social media, it was impossible to miss the fact she tremendously enjoyed Daisy Jones and the Six by Tailor Jenkins Reid and that it inspired her to write Fast It s hard to review a book from a favorite author when you feel like there is no real draw to the characters on the page It s hard to review a book you didn t truly care for but that kept you reading through the night It s wishful reading You keep hoping something will make you love the story but it sadly never happens If you follow the author on social media, it was impossible to miss the fact she tremendously enjoyed Daisy Jones and the Six by Tailor Jenkins Reid and that it inspired her to write Fast Lane.Kristen Ashley drew inspiration of both the distinct narrative from the book mentioned above and the idea of following the up and down of a rock band from their first steps through the span of several decades all the while revolving around one central character The muse in this case The storyline however, is completely hers and the writing story telling remains very much like the KA we all know Maybe too much like the KA we all know.With that being said, starting Fast Lane, I couldn t help myself to compare it to Daisy Jones And The Six DJATS still too fresh on my mind, because of the similar and peculiar narrative choice of telling the story through interviews If I m asked what this book is about, I honestly would answer DJATS la KA Not sure if it s flaterring for either authors I hope it is I do believe the resemblance and my timing reading Fast Lane not too long afterDJATSset me off in a way and played a major factor with my issues getting into the story and appreciate it as a whole.Speaking of which, a couple other things made it hard to get into Fast Lane.First, the copious amount of characters names thrown at me within the first chapters were way too confusing I truly felt the urge to grab a notebook and draw some kind of characters chart or a family tree because I just couldn t keep up with all the people mentioned I kept forgetting who was who, Ricky, Timmy, Nicky, Tommy, Toby I don t even know.Trying to keep up with who was being interviewed, who was in the band, who was not in the band, was tedious to say the least It takes a good while to get acquainted with the person being interviewed, then it takes even longer to get situated among the people revolving around them.Second, ALL the music references Ugh So many of them TOO MANY It felt like I was reading a beginners guide to rock and roll music.The goal was probably to get the readers to get a sense of what kind of music Preacher and the RoadMasters did except she failed miserably in my opinion I couldn t get a feel of what kind of music they played What kind of lyrics Lyla inspired they got so famous for It was all so vague I would have liked some lyrics If it wasn t meant to be helpful then it just felt like a rock and roll check list to listen to I hope it wasn t meant to make us feel The Roadmasters were above or better than all mentioned,edgy,light and dark, you knowThe lack of substancial information about the music they played made them pretty much mainstream and forgettable in my opinion.The heart of my problem with Fast Lane probably resides in the poor characterization of the muse, Lyla The Muse The Saint, The Adored, the Elusive, The Honorable, The Angel Lyla appears out of nowhere, and suddenly everyone is We were all under her spell.All that hair.Those eyes.Her quiet way.Yeah.Bewitched Reading about a rock band s muse and never getting a sense of what made her so special she s worshipped by so many beside being told SO MANY TIMES yet never shown Lyla is Lyla Lyla is the shit fell a little short for me I ve not read anything distinctly showing how significant her role was to the group members Okay, she told a groupie to pack her things once Big deal.Now, Preacher McCade I guess Preacher McCade was alright if you re into egocentric, paternalistic assholes It s alright, I know there s a crowd for this Yeah, yeah, maybe it s part of the charm that made Preacher you know, Preacher And there s a big reveal at the end of the book that explains some of his actions It didn t make me like himor at all though.I sadly wasn t charmed, I couldn t understand the devotion Jesse member of the band instantly had toward him But as I ve been repeatedly told throughout the bookPreacher was Preacher, you knowWhat Preacher said was word and it wasn t up for discussion, this fact was hammered throughout the whole book But what made him so special, really I still have no idea.So what did make me read on What did I like in this story I liked the idea of a romance so powerful it made Preacher recognize his soulmate at first sight I like the idea of him, big shot womanizer making things right for Lyla That kept me around I really liked the angst too And with an asshole hero like Preacher you bet I got my fill of delicious angst The narrative kept me curious enough, left me hanging even some times after getting some time to get used to I kept hanging around for some romance, for a connection It helped to get some insight from Lyla flashbacks POV There wasn t anything that stood out for me reading Fast Lane, I wanted to enjoy the characters , my expectations were probably set to high and that s on me.I wasn t much impressed by the chronicles of a rock band spanning through the decades, especially after readingDJATSyes, I can t help the comparison , the drugs, the sex, and everything surrounding the band through their ascension to success wasn t what kept me intrigued.I don t feel like the writing was any different from what KA usually writes, the format was different, but the writing , especially the way she writes her characters, the dialogues, everything was the same as her previous books The tits and ass, losta hair of the heroine, the hero asking you with me We even get the HGTV worthy description at the end of the book After reading 50 KA books, it almost reads as checking items off a list when it comes with the aforementioned.I wish we would havecharacter development when it came to describe them other than the rote and generic Lyla was being Lyla and Preacher, he s Preacher, you know We were all under her spell.Her ride comes and Christ.I mean, Christ.Watchin those two say good bye.Christ.We didn t know.He didn t know.She didn t know.But it was like we all knew, you know Christ It wasn t that Fast Lane was bad, it wasn t particularly good eitherYou know More reviews and book talk atYou can find me here too

    I ve read so many Kristen Ashley KA books that it is a blur sometimes all the characters and plots There is always music mentioned in her books, I can tell KA is a big music fan and this project was years brewing in her mind Fast Lane was both very familiar and different all at the same time Told in interview style, Fast Lane covers decades and the rise and fall of a rock band that made it in the 80s I could tell this was a book close to the authors heart and I applaud her attempt to try s I ve read so many Kristen Ashley KA books that it is a blur sometimes all the characters and plots There is always music mentioned in her books, I can tell KA is a big music fan and this project was years brewing in her mind Fast Lane was both very familiar and different all at the same time Told in interview style, Fast Lane covers decades and the rise and fall of a rock band that made it in the 80s I could tell this was a book close to the authors heart and I applaud her attempt to try something in a new style To be completely honest though the way the story is told detracted from the emotional impact I normally feel in a KA read For me the magic of a KA book is in the connection to the main characters that I always feel They are never flat, always have some big emotional situational issues happening and I get sucked in almost from page 1 Then there are the makeshift families that are formed from surrounding characters Your family doesn t have to be just the ones tied to you by blood and KA always creates a network of this in any series she writes Fast Lane, couldn t capture that same magic and never quite did, although I did warm to the story and characters in later chapters The book starts off being told from Jesse s perspective He was a member of the band and main character Preacher s best friend It was hard to really connect to Preacher and Lyla when it is a third person telling their story It got easier once Lyla was one of individuals being interviewed, then I started to connect to the story a little better But it was the eyes I gotta believe, and this would prove true, in a way, if it wasn t Preach, it would be somebody Another rock star A photographer A painter Someone would fall in the muse of Lyla s eyes But as you know, it was Preacher. Ashley, Kristen Fast Lane Rock Chick Press Kindle Edition Lyla and Jesse are the two being interviewed the most and without a Preacher interview I struggled to love him as much as they did Sure, he is bigger than life, with demons in his past But we don t know what those demons are until much later in the book which is a huge reveal in genuine KA style and sometimes he is a really big jerk So, while by the end of the book I d forgive Preacher almost everything, during the book I wasn t completely on board.At one point during this story I was really afraid that we were not going to get an HEA I was actually so afraid of this that I almost stopped the book altogether Because a KA book that gives you all the angst and no happy at the end might destroy me Let s just say that I was satisfied with where this book took us at the end of it.The start of Fast Lane took awhile to get going for me, but once it did, I enjoyed this story of a Rock and Roll Bands journey through the difficulties of fame and a couple s journey to live in that fame and all that came with it Lyla, was a strong solid woman that I really liked from the first interview and she added true heart to the story My only complaint is that I think if KA had written this in her normal voice, instead of the interview style, I would have loved it evenBut I have about 50 KA books under my belt and so that is a big mountain to climb to accept a complete change up to the writing style Overall this was an enjoyable read once we hit about 25% and start to get to know Lyla She really carried the book for me If you are a lover of music and enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody, Almost Famous or the Doors then I think there will be something in this for you to enjoy
