More Than Comics by Elizabeth Briggs

They're friends online - but can they be more in real life?

Writer Tara McFadden has been friends with artist and drummer Hector Fernandez for years, long before his band became famous on reality TV – yet they’ve never met in person. They finally have a chance to connect offline when they’re both sent to Comic-Con to promote the graphic novel they collaborated on.

Hector's secretly been in love with Tara for as long as he can remember, and once they meet, she sees him in a new light. All the years of longing lead to an incredible night of passion after one of his concerts, but neither is sure if their online relationship can translate into a real life romance – or if this will ruin their friendship forever.

Over four crazy days at Comic-Con, Hector and Tara must decide if they want a future together. But when their story seems to be over, it’s up to Hector’s entire band to make sure he and Tara get their happy ending.

Sweet and easy

A nice romance super fast to read with cool characters.

What was really interesting was the description of the Comic-Con atmosphere, the fans behaviours as well as the comics world industry.

For once, you see characters, even if they are young, been dedicated to their passion and really trying to make a living from it. Like the spirit.
The author doesn't tell you it's easy. Of course, there is a happy ending but you can still see that the heros have worked to achieve their dreams. And it's done in a nice way.

As for the characters, they are cool, drama but not enough to make me roll my eyes. :-D
If Tara is a little too confused about what she wants and where her heart is for my taste, I've liked her nevertheless. I like her excitation, nervousness and humility at meeting her fans.
Hector is super cute. Ok, not the part where he is an ass but come on...he is a cool sweet one!

Honestly, it's a nice read. Perfect to chill after a long day.
