When hot, talented, uber-famous boy band Gold enroll at the prestigious Oakwood Academy, Iris is determined not to get distracted. She's class president and a scholarship student, and she can't let her grades drop. Besides, there are plenty of other girls who are desperate to get close to Gold - including Iris's best friend, Chloe.

But on their first day at Oakwood, Iris is asked to show Gold around - and finds out gorgeous lead singer Rian will be sharing her locker . . .

Surrounded by fans and paparazzi at every turn, Noah, Luke and Rian love that Iris treats them just like normal guys. But being friends with three of the most famous people in the world comes with its problems. And when Iris begins to realize she has feelings for one of them, things get even more complicated . . .

The Review: Full of fun and flirty moments with an enjoyable plot, Gold Rush is entertaining read perfect for any contemporary romance fans.

Everyone and anyone has heard of the band Gold and even more so when the band enrols at Oakwood Academy. Iris is possibly the only girl in her school who isn’t swooning over the boys, even when they befriend her because she acts so cool around them. Iris suddenly finds herself surrounded by the boys and, soon she finds that there’s more to the members of Gold than she once thought – especially the lead singer Rian. Iris finds herself getting closer to him, but could she ever have a serious relationship with a famous rock star, or will she be the one getting hurt?

I liked Gold Rush, in fact there’s nothing not to like about this story. Its fun and a very quick read. It’s one that keeps you entertained throughout, even though it’s slightly predictable at the end, but still thoroughly enjoyable.  The members of Gold are likable and just that little bit swoon-worthy. All the boys had different personalities so it was great getting to know them. Iris and her two best friends, Chloe and Kevin were just as likable as everyone. The whole gang fit together and it was enjoyable listening to the banter they have back and forth. 

Iris’s and Rian’s relationship wasn’t as insta-love, which I really enjoyed. It was a slow one, one where they started off as friends and things moved along from there. It was pretty easy to spot Rian’s feelings for Iris before Iris did, so that was fun too. 

In all, Gold Rush is an enjoyable read – one that will keep you smiling throughout.
