About the book: Emma Hill was practically born with a violin in her hands. She lives for the life of the piece, for each song’s story, for the perfect stillness after the endnotes when the vibrations of sound are still humming through her body. If only her love life were that harmonic. But she knew her chances at love would take a hit when she decided to leave her prestigious concertmaster position in the Cleveland Orchestra and move back home to Asheville, North Carolina. She justifies her actions with the fact that being concertmaster for the Asheville Symphony is better than no dates and no job.
But when Emma’s world collides with piano-playing YouTube sensation Elliott Hart, she finds herself falling for the way he plucks at her heartstrings. Despite a—ahem—not-so-good first impression, the two soon develop the beginnings of a rhythmic relationship. But when Elliott insists they can’t be together, it’s up to Emma to strike up a little romance. Will she be able to bring their two worlds into harmony, or will she only manage to get herself in trouble?
My review: Oh. My. Goodness! I love a good romance and this one is just amazing! I love the way Jenny Proctor included music in almost every bit of this book. The whole plot line is awesome and the ending is just amazing!
I love Emma. I had to laugh at the beginning when she first met Elliot. I loved the way that she couldn't even talk to him. And what made it even funnier was all of the assumptions that he had made about her that were revealed later. I loved the way that Emma was forced to learn some things about herself and her motives and the way that she was able to grow and change because of that. And I loved all of the care she went to at the end for Elliot. It was kind of fun in this book that the only point of view we see is Emma's. It might be a little one sided, but that's how we see our every day life.
What to say about Elliot??? I have to admit that he wasn't one of my favorite characters at the beginning. But I loved the way he changed once he realized that his initial impression of Emma was completely wrong. I loved that he was honest with her from the very beginning about his motives for being in Asheville and the way he saw their relationship going. I loved the way he was a gentleman. The scene at the beer festival with the Stud t-shirt guy was probably one of my favorites! (Go read it, I'm not saying any more about it!)
I loved how I felt transported to Asheville with every word I read, I think I seriously need a trip there. This book is amazing! Go read it, end of story!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
