Trent really does think he’s a hero. He’s the one making sure the band stays successful. He makes sure the trains run on time. So maybe he has to try to chase off Rick’s new girlfriend. They can’t afford to have their bassist distracted by a woman while they’re recording. And maybe he has to pay a woman to pretend to be Alan’s girlfriend to keep him on the wagon during the tour. Do you know how expensive it is to cancel a concert? There’s not just lost ticket sales, there’s fines and penalties.
When the rest of the guys were okay with that, it was fine. They’re not anymore. Over the course of the 4 books in the series you get to see Trent’s ultimate comeuppance. It’s only going to be 99¢ for one more week, so if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, don’t wait.
