Perfect Timing by Laura Spinella

There’s rock, there’s a hard place, then there’s Aidan&Isabel.

What’s a Jersey Girl to do when she moves to Catswallow, Alabama? Isabel Lang finds the answer in an unlikely bond with the musically gifted Aidan Roycroft. The two share everything from a first kiss to startling family secrets. But when Aidan is accused of a violent crime, the two flee to Las Vegas where Isabel’s future comes tumbling down.

Seven years later, the past is buried, including any relationship with Aidan. Isabel is busy running a radio station and closing in on commitment with Nate Potter, a guy who defines ideal. Life seems cozy until new station management demands a sudden-death ratings grabber, putting everyone’s future on the line. What should be a simple solution leads to a stunning revelation as Isabel is forced to call on the past and the only rock star she knows.

I was a little worried going into this book because I absolutely LOVED the first book by this author. Well no need to worry I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! It was a completely different story but had similarities in a past history between the main characters that was wonderfully intertwined with current happenings. It had a fabulous twist at the end that had me not able to put it down!! Kid was almost late to the bus!!!! :) I'm so sad I'm finished reading it but also very happy for having read it!! Both books are definite re-reads in my world!!! Can't wait to see the next book!!!

Absolutely loved this book. I am not going to write a long review because what everyone has said (as long as it was positive) was true. This book is in my top 10 for this genre.

What a wonderful romance! This book was so touching, with sweet and tender moments, as well as devastating ones that broke my heart. Both of the main characters were great. Bad boy persona aside, Aidan Roycroft was very intelligent, caring, with firm values and a very protective nature. Isabella was strong, gutsy, and also willing to do anything necessary to protect the one she loved. The 2nd chance romance between these two was an enjoyable storyline, and the book had multiple great settings. There were a few wonderful secondary characters, and a few of those that readers love to hate. This book is one I'd definitely recommend for lovers of contemporary romance. Adrian Roycroft and Isabella Lang are the best of friends. After something unimaginable happens to Isabella and precipitates events that spell trouble for both, they take off for Vegas. While there, Adrian's big chance as a rock star seems to be in the palm of his hand, but in order to secure his future, Isabella has to sever the connection between them.  Seven years later, Adrian is wildly successful as a rock star, but still feels the loss of Isabella. She is working for a radio station and has been running a non-profit foundation. When the radio station is sold and changes formats, only something huge will save her job and those of her co-workers. When Isabella decides that her only option is to ask Adrian to do a concert for her radio station, both of their futures will be impacted. I loved this book! Great characters, an interesting storyline, and colorful settings made this a book that was very enjoyable to read. The transitions between past and current storylines was handled very well, and every moment of reading this book was pure pleasure.

This is another winner from Laura Spinella.  Like her first book, the writing is fantastic.  She transitions flawlessly between past and present and then wraps it up nicely in the end.  I was caught up in the story from the start and found the ending to be very gratifying.  I was kind of disappointed that it had to end. The characters in this book are well developed, complex, and believable.  There are some who are very likable and a few who are so skeevy they made my skin crawl.  Isabel is a very relatable character and I liked her a lot.  Even rock star Aiden was a relatable and likable guy, in spite of his bad boy persona.  Together, these two are a dynamic couple who are meant to be together. I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance.  Ms. Spinella is talented at spinning a compelling and emotion packed tale.  I look forward to more from her in the future.

I didn't love this as much as Beautiful Disaster. I didn't really connect to Isabel. There were chapters here and there that felt confusing and disjointed when it came to the overall smoothness of the story. I hated several characters in the book.

Isabel Lang’s best friend is Aidan Roycroft, a musically talented heart-throb whose reputation is definitely pegged as “love ‘em and leave ‘em.”  As a matter of fact in the beginning of this tale, Aidan has just dumped a girl in the most public fashion possible and received an rsvp of a huge smack in the face.  The reader then follows the story to the background of Isabel and Aidan’s friendship occurring at a time when they really trusted, needed and always hung out with each other. The story of their families is far from endearing, actually making it easier for them to depend on each other and only on each other. It was a safe world, as long as Isabel reminded herself that she was never going to be like “them,” meaning those Aidan had left like so much debris being thrown away.  Now, just when Isabel and Aidan are beginning to see each other with new eyes, a violent event happens, an act is totally twisted by the perpetrator, and the couple are forced to flee to Las Vegas.  No, the story doesn’t end happily ever after at this point.  Instead Isabel becomes one of “them,” but not because of Aidan’s choice at all.  So, as a strong woman Isabel sets her sights on a new future, one without Aidan. Isabel, seven years later, is running a radio station that’s about to undergo a revolutionary change, given the fierce competition for listeners with Internet and satellite radio being top or prime musical sites.  Isabel is forced to come up with a pivotal change, a command performance that will move her station’s prime status to the top. Everything has a cost and Isabel is about to pay big time! To say more would spoil a neat story that is credible, sincere, stunning and passionate.  Justice is served in some cases, although late in the offering.   for several people in Isabel and Aidan's lives! Yessss!  Laura Spinella has created a tale that is replete with a good plot, some unusual twists and turns, and a sexy, flawed but totally attractive male character whose heart has always been fiercely held in the heart of one solid but unsure gal.  Nicely done, Laura Spinella!

As a huge fan of Ms Spinella's debut, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER, I was desperate to get my hands on this novel. And then I read it twice, because once wasn't enough. Ms Spinella weaves a tight love story of devotion, betrayal, and family secrets as she glides effortlessly back and forth in time. The brilliant plot twists, the spunky dialogue, the fabulous characters--and let's not forget the sexiest rock star on the planet--make this a hard book to put down. If you're looking for the perfect holiday escapism, this is it.

Laura Spinella is the only author I have ever read  that can move from the present to the past so seamlessly.   The past is where I got to know and love Aiden and Isabel, even with their speckled histories.    The present is where I got to hope that true love, first love, is a real thing and will overcome all the obstacles.  It was so touching to see how their friendship progressed from a young love to an adult relationship.   Aiden is truly one of a kind, the kind that every girl hopes to have in her life.   As the story is told, there are twists and turns that I never saw coming.  One in particular had me setting the book down and making me think about what was being told.     This twist truly makes the story one that I will be talking about for a long while and be happily sharing with all my fellow readers.   This is a book of love conquering all with a ton of emotion and amazing writing.    This is a book that I will recommend to EVERYONE.   Laura Spinella wrote another amazing book that is sure to touch anyone who reads it.
