"Gritty and romantic, Moonlight and Love Songs will steal your heart, sell it for drugs, and leave you with a song. It's dark and sexy, an unflinching portrayal of two soul mates discovering in each other the foundation upon which all love depends-hope." - Miranda Baker, author of the Come Again series
"They call Paris "The City of Light", but Alyssa Linn Palmer reveals its darker side in Moonlight & Love Songs. She pulls no punches in this noir romance. Damaged people meet and fall in love, but some cravings are too powerful to resist, and sometimes love alone isn't enough to quell them. Classic jazz tunes and French chansons provide the soundtrack to a story that hits you in the gut and in the heart. You'll never see Paris the same way again." -- Cathy Pegau, author of Rulebreaker and Caught In Amber

A hard and true romance between two men who need to keep some hope alive The Parisian in me loved the ride provided by the author into the streets of Paris and those of Marseille. I also liked the music that accompanies this story. I always enjoyed it when the authors disclose a playlist, with songs that have inspired them, while writing the novel. Here, it is even better because the heroes are musicians and they interpret the classics of the French repertoire that all the tourist are asking for like "La Vie en Rose". The romantic in me also enjoyed the difficult love story between Daniel and Benoît. What I liked most is that the two heroes assume their sexuality. Often in Gay romances, there is a protagonist who has not done his coming out or who is not confortable in his own gay skin. Here, the reader witnesses beautiful scenes of love and sex. Particularly explicit, they are realistic and exciting but above all.... Boiling hot and super sexy! What bothered me though, is the heavy presence of drugs. If it brings excitement and spice at the beginning, soon the too realistic descriptions saddled the atmosphere. Sure, it gives some dark depth to Daniel. His addiction and his struggle to stay clean render his character less fictional and more complex but it can decourage some reader... But Daniel is lucky to have such a comprehensive, determined and loving partner like Benoît. After reading the ending, I want to learn more about this couple whose future still seems chaotic but hopeful. A hard and true romance between two men who need to keep some hope alive. And some torrid scenes! . Lucie newbooksonmyselves.blogspot.fr
