    1. 4-4.5 stars God bless the wankers. Kim Holden is the most genuinely kind and positive author I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. And that quality shines so brightly in all of her books. Even with the characters struggles, hard to read topics etc, this aura of positivity lingers. I love that about her stories. Franco is the drummer in Rook (Gus’s band) and one seriously cool dude. But Franco is not your average rock star. He has a thing about dating. He doesn’t do it much, because he’s [...]

    2. INFINITE STARS************A Kim Holden novel is always EPIC. Her words invade my veins, my brain, my heart. Franco and Gemma's story was like listening to my favorite song, really loud. Making me wanna sing and dance like a happy fool. I felt everything, as if I was part of the story. Theirs was a specialfriendship; so selfless, so passionate and super fun. I absolutely adored every minute of this story. Top ten favorite book of the year for me. Franco, the American Naughty Boy is a Must Read!!! [...]

    3. 4 "Franco" starsIt was't emotionally fulfilling as the first two books in these series, The Bright Side and Gus but I loved both characters and their bond was palpable, even though not in the intensity as much as i hoped for, but i wasn't disappointed either, lets say i was content in the end, at least *smiles and waves*Slow-ish paced, emotional romance with just a small hint of angst with a lovable "rock star tattoed drummer with a huge heart on his sleeve" as a hero and equally presentable her [...]

    4. 4.5 starsI have enjoyed all of Kim Holden’s books. They are thoughtful, uplifting and frequently stirring, and each book celebrates the power of the human spirit. Franco is no different.It’s book three in the Bright Side series, and I can’t sing the praises of the first two books, Bright Side and Gus, highly enough. They fit very nicely on my All-Time Favorites bookshelf. This book isn’t a continuation of Kate and Gus’s story though; it’s a distinctly separate plot. Franco doesn’t [...]

    5. FrancoBook DescriptionFranco Genovese is the drummer for world renowned American rock band, Rook. He’s got it all. A killer smile. Tattoos. Talent. Razor sharp wit and humor. And a heart as big, and generous, as they come. Life is good. Steady. Uncomplicated. Just the way he likes things. Until one night at an unassuming L.A. bar changes everything. Enter Gemma Hendricks. She’s a successful young architect from Northern England with an adorable smile, sarcasm for days, and an unparalleled tr [...]

    6. Being the minority sucks ass!!! The first 2 books are 1million % in my all time favs but I was disappointed with this one.I loved Franco but I was bored. The feels I have come to expect from this author were lacking and, maybe my expectations were too high, but this didn't even seem like the same level of writing as Bright Side and Gus.Franco had a great personality but at times it was annoying and almost immature, like trying to hard to make him witty, snarky and cool. Again- it sucks to not lo [...]

    7. Franco (Bright Side #3) by Kim Holden4 stars!!!“God bless the wankers.”Kim Holden only knows how to “Do Epic” and Franco is no different. Franco is the drummer in Rook, Gus’s band and though he has been mentioned throughout this series we have never actually really got to know him. Gus has a great taste in friends and band mates and there was nothing about Franco I did not like. In fact, he was adorable. “These tears are love. Don’t ever apologize for that.”Franco is not your ave [...]

    8. What an absolutely AMAZING start to my reading year. This book was pure magic. Gemma and Franco are one fun couple. Their banter and friendship were epic. This little storyline with a little angst was so good. And of course Kate. She's never far from our thoughts and Kim knows exactly the right time to remind us of how epic she was. And I can't forget Gus. Gosh, I do love him! His and Franco's bromance is the best one I've read in some time! This was just a super fun read with a hint of nostalgi [...]

    9. This series is by far one of my most favorite. I own signed copies of all three and have highlighted the fuck out of them. There are so many great quotes. And so many passages on life - real fucking life. Not some sparkly covered made up fake shit. These books cover real life, the ugly, all of it. And I love it.This book tackles Franco, OBVS. And we don't really know tons about him. He makes his appearances frequently in the first two books but we still don't know the dirt. Verdict is in and hon [...]

    10. I LOVED IT!Franco is so mega adorable!I loved that we got to see some Gus too - those two together should definitely get their own tv show! ☺The only thing about the book that I didn't like? The cover. The guy looks too old and I have a hard limit about tattoos being visible above the collar. I'm not the biggest fan of them in the first place, but anything visible above the collar and on hands is ew for me :/ Also, why did they have to go and get pierced??? There's nothing more unsexy than a n [...]

    11. I just pre-ordered the shit out of this book! Thank you Kim Holden for my holiday surprise. My only hope is this installment isn't going to make me cry uncontrollably thus causing me to drink bourbon like Bright Side (Book#1) did.

    12. 4.5 Franco Stars - ❤ Audible Review HERE ❤If Bright Side broke me and GUS mended me Franco made my heart grew 2 sizes. I can’t even tell you what this series has done to me. I will say take the plunge. Even if you know Bright Side will hurt and maybe make your cry. It’s worth it. GUS will put you back together and Franco just makes you smile. It’s a fantastic series. Franco… He was always a character I liked from the other books. But I never really thought to much about him to be hon [...]

    13. 4.5/5 starsFranco is the third and final book in the Bright Side series. This book could be read as a standalone (only if you were never planning to read the first two books). However I think that Franco was definitely meant to be read as part of the series. Events from Bright Side and Gus are mentioned and play an important part of the story. I would definitely recommend reading this after reading the other two books.There will be some spoilers from Bright Side and Gus. The narrator is 26 year [...]

    14. 4 God Bless the wankers stars Kim Holden gives readers another emotional masterpiece that will touch your heart. Franco is the best kind of guy and seeing the members of Rook again is like seeing family. Franco will definitely make you smile and you will cry because of hardships that are faced. But Kim has given us more of Kate's boys and its an experience that you won't soon forget. A look into their lives and their happiness was for me simply EPIC.

    15. “I’ve decided that I want to live like this, my mouth attached to hers, forever.”Bright Side and Gus are two of my ALL–TIME FAVORITE books, so when I heard that Kim Holden was gifting us with yet another book in the Bright Side series, I could not contain my excitement. Even better, it was going to Franco’s book! Sweet and funny Franco, the drummer of Rook and a guy after my own heart.Franco Genovese is living the rockstar life, touring from city to city and jamming the night away with [...]

    16. Book 1 2017.I cried!When you read a book and the voice of the heroine is in your head. Proper in my head. God bless the leopard print, gin loving, mascara running strawberry blonde in the Bieber pyjamas.Franco always had a soft spot in my heart. I knew he had more to give. Drummers have great rhythm. Kim writes her books with her heart on her sleeve and her heart on the page. She gives herself to the reader. Make no mistake at all that this book is a love story. I felt it in my bones. It's an od [...]

    17. Disappointed that I didn't love this book as much as I loved Bright Side and Gus. I loved Franco in both of those books but I think everything was wrapped up so neatly in Gus that an entire Franco book wasn't necessary.

    18. I never thought anything could top Bright Side, but Franco did. This was a lighter, more humorous story for Kim, but she still pulled tears from my eyes in the perfect Kim Holden fashion. I was so incredibly invested in Franco and Gemma. The characters she developed here were so unique, so special, so original that they felt like people I knew and loved. Franco's story just had it all: the love story, the humor, the chemistry, the sizzle, the angst, but most importantly, THE HEARTKim Holden writ [...]

    19. PDL's Rating: 5 'Naughty American Boy' PunchesThis a great wrap-up of this series! especially for what my heart just went through with the first 2 books. Franco was sooooooo much fun to read and the friendships I fell so hard for in the first 2 books has spread its love into the 3rd as well. I love this author’s characters! They are all so fun and witty and their friendships are the kind we dream of for ourselves.

    20. Deep, who knew the quick witted, filthy mouthed, funny name calling drummer could be so down to earth and sweet!! I mean we knew there had to be something special about him since Kate and Gus liked him, but wow wasn't expecting that. I'm shit at reviews, but I'm trying to do this one justice. I just can't describe how special and amazing this book is. It fits right in with the Bright Side family though. Truly one of a kind and absolutely worth the time to read.

    21. 4-4.5 ✨I enjoyed reading Francis story. His relationship with Gem was well written and in very happy the way it ended.

    22. Holy fuck this book was everything! Hands down one of my all time favorite reads. Her characters have character and so much damn depth. Her writing is so lyrical and the storyline was brilliant. I love these characters so damn hard, they are all family and every single one has left a mark that runs deep into my bones. I have never felt more alive. This woman and her genius way with words will make your soul tremble. The rush and anticipation will keep you on edge and have you holding your breath [...]

    23. I loved Franco and Gemma! They were a wicked, sweet couple with tons of witty banter. Once again, Kim proves why she is an automatic go to read for me. My only complaint is I wanted more of them as a couple. With that said, I definitely recommend Franco if you are looking for a light hearted, quick, and whimsical read!

    24. I expected to cry but i laughed so much, I didn't know this book was coming out even though i am in the bright side group (shame on me ) i saw Coho post it and that was it, i one clicked this baby and told anyone who spoiled it on my facebook i would cause them bodily harm lol so i avoided all groups and newsfeed and jumped in totally blind i didn't read the blurb and knew nothing except the cover on the front HOT by the way and that it was brightside 3, i laughed so much at the witty banter bet [...]

    25. I just jumped on the Bright Side wagon literally 2 weeks ago. I know, I can't believe I waited so long. That was clearly my bad. Once I finished Gus's book (which was my fav btw), I was super happy to see that Franco's book was coming out. Score! Considering I recently just finished the last two books, this one seemed a little bit different than the last two. It was definitely shorter, so maybe things moved much faster, but everything felt soh. Don't get me wrong, I loved the band and Gemma bant [...]

    26. If anyone wants to fantasize about a book boyfriend, Franco is it. At times I thought he was too perfect and I wanted to gag, but he is the supportive man (or woman) we all want in our lives. I just couldn't love him more. For her few flaws, Gemma was just lovelye makes us mere mortals feel as if we should do a better job caring for each other. READ THIS BOOK! Kim Holden has hit it outta the park again and I vow not to be so pissy about the time it takes her to write anymore, if she keeps up wit [...]

    27. I'm so glad that it was my last read of 2016 and my first of 2017. It's an easily given 5 stars from me. I think I loved it even more than Gus. <3
