About the book: Can you ever out run a broken heart?
Court spent seven years traveling the world, living the nomadic
Broadway life, in an attempt to outrun the broken heart Nick Rivers gave
her. Now, there’s nowhere left to go.
When she accepted a
position as a high school drama teacher in Las Vegas, Lexi hoped to get
over Nick, find a nice guy, and settle down. But what should be a quiet
summer gets turned upside down when Lexi's best friend, Taffy, drafts
her to be an emergency replacement coach on a televised vocal
Feeling out of her league among the other three
celebrity coaches, Lexi fights for the most promising contestants to be
on her team. One note from a single voice shatters her summer. Nick
unexpectedly auditions and joins Lexi's team. With her vocal crush on
him raging as strong as ever, she has nowhere to run from Nick’s dreamy
looks or siren voice.
Lexi has no doubt that Nick can win the
competition. The question is does he want to win her heart as well or
will he damage it beyond repair?
My review: I got quickly engrossed in this book for several reasons. The author did a great job with characters, the plot was fun and fast paced, and I wanted to know what happened to Lexi as she was helping with the competition.
Lexi is a great character. I loved that she seemed real and she was not a perfect person by any means. Lexi has run from her old life because of Nick, a man she once loved. She's trying to do everything a normal high school teacher would do and also hide from her past. Which becomes really hard to do when she helps her best friend with the competition and her ex-boyfriend Nick ends up being on her team. I loved the way that she tries so hard to hide from Nick, but he keeps getting shoved into her space, at home, at work, everywhere.
I liked Nick too, I thought he was a gentleman, and a true romantic. It would have been fun to have seen some of the story through his eyes as well.
I liked the plot of this one too. It was fast paced and fun. I loved that there were several places where Nick and Lexi had misunderstandings about who loved who, like when Lexi was helping a friend pick out an engagement ring for his girlfriend and Nick was stalking her, not knowing what she was doing. It made the book that much more fun.
This book is a cute, fun, clean romance that you won't want to put down!
I purchased this e-book for free from Amazon.
