Overview

"Elyssa Patrick has written an amazing debut novel that is destined to be a favorite for romance readers" ~ Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Love doesn’t always follow the sheet music . . .

This Christmas, Portia Jackson needs a miracle to save her family’s generations-old florist shop. What she gets instead is a car that breaks down during a blizzard. Help arrives unexpectedly when the infamous Aubry Riley pulls over. She only expects him to drive her to the gas station . . . she never expects that kiss. But Portia lives in the real world—she knows this is only a holiday fling for Aubry. Except it doesn’t feel so temporary, and the last thing she wants is a broken heart.

Sometimes you have to sing some different notes . . .

Rock star Aubry Riley has no secrets. Thanks to the media, everyone knows about his troubled past. Six years have gone by since his world crashed, and now he’s ready for a comeback. But first he needs to reconcile with his family—starting with his six-year-old daughter. A month-long vacation at a Vermont lake house affords him the perfect opportunity to take a step in the right direction. He doesn’t need any other emotional entanglements, especially not with the bright-eyed florist he can’t stop thinking about. But no matter how hard he tries to resist her, he can’t. Now all he has to do is to convince Portia that there is nothing temporary when it comes to love.

    3.5

    This is one of those books that grabbed my attention from the synopsis but started losing it somewhere along the way and then grabbed it again.

    Aubry is a rock star in need on a break to clear his head and find his muse. He lost his wife 5 years ago, went through a rough patch and wants to make amends to his daughter and his sister. Portia is a flower shop owner, who does not do one-night stands, but runs away at the first signs of love.

    Like I stated before, the synopsis of this book really caught my attention. I really like rock stars as main characters. Especially if they come across tough and edgy, but underneath it all they want to be loved. Aubry was a bit like this. I liked him fine in the beginning, even enjoyed his sarcastic remarks and dark sense of humor. But as the story progressed I became a bit disillusioned. He acted like a mean jerk sometimes and was right down cruel at times. I could overlook some of it, but others just put me off. However, there were moments where he said the sweetest things. I don't know, it was a bit disconcerting that dual personality trait of his. But I do admit that is one of the things that kept me reading, so there you go!

    Portia was great. She was funny and sweet and very real. She acted tough and independent, but you could see she wanted to find that person to lean on and love her unconditionally.

    I enjoyed how the author brought them together. It was a bit surreal - the rock star and the girl next door- but the author took her time, and between great dialog and character development she made it as if they were any other couple.

    The writing was good. The author used humor and banter in an engaging way. It's another reason I kept reading. It was very entertaining. I would have liked to see more of the relationship between Laura and Finn, I found them to be adorable. And I would have enjoyed more time with just Roxie and Aubry. I think it would have given the reader a better understanding of how much Aubry had changed.

    All in all, this was a very good read. With great characters and entertaining dialog that told the love story of two different people who underneath it all just wanted to find that person that loved and understood them.
