My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Did I tell you how much I like books about musicians?! Well, I do and I think this is the best one yet, with one hell of a sexy rock star, Quinn Blake.
George is catering at one of his gigs and they click instantly, the had a strong connection from the start and were drawn to each other.

George Fraser has worked hard for her catering business and now at 34 she’s made it. She had a difficult past, with getting pregnant as a teen and her mother being difficult about it.

It might seem weird that Quinn and George hit it off immediately, but they were just great together and by the end of the book you know why.

However, there’s a problem, Quinn is engaged and his fiancĂ©e (god I hated her) wants George to cater for their wedding – just great…

Their feelings grow deeper and Quinn tries to be with her whenever he can, although they have to hide all the time. But why is he still marrying this actress?
Quinn doesn’t really want to open up and talk about it, it’s got to do with Taylor’s father and Quinn’s past

Of course it comes to a real showdown and the truth is revealed. I just loved the story even more then ;).

The characters were so well lined out and seemed so real, especially Quinn and George. But also Adam, I loved his role.

Quinn is just – oh wow, musically so talented, hot and full of surprises, he’s also the newest addition to my book boyfriend list.
I got a bit annoyed with him, because he wasn’t standing up for himself or George, but he had his reasons, so that’s totally fine.

A book full of music – thank you Mandy for this <3. Mandy has an incredible writing voice and a real talent to create real and authentic scenes. A story full of drama, love, friendship, family and more, check it out!!!


My possible cast:

George: Emily VanCamp

Quinn: Sean O'Pry
