Just for the record, the heat can get to even the most calculated of minds.
Let it be stated that Rhys loves Ryan forever and ever. But certain needs are not being met, leaving her frustrated and asking for too much than the conservative and almost-rock star, Ryan, is willing to give. Uncooperative (or cooperative, depending on your point of view) weather provides her an opportunity to ask not what she can do for her friends, but what a friend can do for her.
Isaiah likes to say that the best thing about Rhys is that he can stand in her breathing space and feel nothing. Something of a breather when dancing with Lia short circuits his entire operating system. But all his beliefs are challenged when Rhys chances upon him in a steamy practice room in the middle of a heat wave.
ReviewDeliciously bad. If pressed to describe Just for the Record by Six de los Reyes in two words, those are the ones I would use.
First of all, I was expecting a book where something happened between two people who never saw it coming. Maybe a little sweet and mostly fluffy. Instead, I got a tangled web of relationships where hot makeout sessions in recording studios and finding out a certain someone's tongue tasted like cotton candy didn't count. As cheating. As anything. Just because. You know how car wrecks can be a strangely beautiful sight in the movies? This whole book was like that. I was fairly certain Rhys and Isaiah's little affair was going to blow up in their faces, and I couldn't look away.
Six de los Reyes is also an expert in concocting swoon-worthy fictional boys. Isaiah is all emotional constipation and rock-hard abs while Ryan, on the other hand, is a bundle of insecurities who can only truly express himself in the form of song lyrics. No wonder Rhys couldn't resist either of them. Along with Jay E. Tria, Six de los Reyes is making me wish a random band boy would show up in my life. *crosses fingers*
The secondary characters are awesome, too, especially the beautiful but diabolical Nico. I've been lucky enough to read some of the author's other work, and the characters in them are connected in a lot of ways. It's fun wondering whose story you'll get to read next, to wonder who they'll end up with.
My only quibble with the entire book was the ending. It left me hanging and made me want more... fireworks? Maybe it's just the drama queen in me talking, but I thought so much more could've happened. However, it does appear that Rhys and Isaiah's story is continued in a story posted on the author's Wattpad account. I'll definitely check that one out.
I highly enjoyed Just for the Record by Six de los Reyes. The book greatly captured the beginning and ending of a "relationship" between two people who just wanted to be needed. If you've been too much of a good girl and want to live dangerously (romantically speaking) for a few hours, give this book a try.
