Fate. Destiny. Karma… She’s mine.
It all started with a broken heart.
And a breakup party.
Rock stars. Circus freaks. And a bachelorette party.
Too. Much. Booze.
An embarrassing tattoo.
And a twist of fate.
Her name was Danny.
I thought she was The One.
But then I lost her.
And I never thought I’d see her again.
Now… I’m a mess.
I’ve had my heart broken—more than once.
And my band's broken up.
I’ve sworn to myself that I’ll never fall in love again.
Time to focus on new music and my new band.
As soon as I sober up from my latest breakup party…
But then there she is.
Standing in the rain, looking at me.
My dream girl.
I missed my chance with her once.
Maybe this time… I’ll get it right.
The Hot Mess Playlists!
While I was writing Hot Mess, I put together ONE OF THE LONGEST PLAYLISTS YET. And then I made 4 MORE PLAYLISTS (known as the vortex playlists, for Ash, Summer, Matt and Danica).
As usual, some of the songs on the Hot Mess playlists are mentioned in the book; others are songs that captured the feel of a certain scene or that I listened to while writing the book.
I hope you enjoy these (5!!) playlists as much as I’ve loved putting them together! And I hope the vortex playlists give you a deeper glimpse into these characters’ “blood, guts and soul.”
