Julia James has spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. For her, the cello was a way to get past a hellish childhood. Even now that she is one of the top cellists in the country, and a contender in the most prestigious, high-stakes music competition in the world, she hopes no one will notice her.

But then someone does.

A chance (or is it?) encounter brings her to the attention of the distractingly sexy, charismatic French horn player, Jeremy Corrigan. As he helps her to embrace her talent, her sexuality and her past, Julia thinks she might finally be headed toward her ‘happily-ever-after.'

Unfortunately, happily isn’t so much ‘ever-after’ for Julia.

The lines between love and obsession are blurred in REVERIE.

Wow! This book was such an exciting and thrilling read! This book took off from page one and kept you fully entertained to the very last page! This book is book one of a three part book series. This book is not your typical romance/love story. There is no cotton candy fluff and rainbows. This love story focuses not just on love, but on obsession, seduction, addiction, compulsion, instability, and fascination. This is more of a dark romance with stalker tendencies and psychological imbalances. I had a very hard time putting this book down as I was completely enthralled in the storyline and had to know what was going to happen next. The main character, Julia James, is a well accomplished cellist. She is intelligent, but somewhat naive. She is the quieter, reserved, keeps to herself type that hopes to hide in the background. However, with her level of talent and beauty she is left in the spotlight and it isn’t long before the girl who wants to be unnoticed becomes well – noticed. Julia is very likeable and genuine. I’m not the quiet type, but I think many readers will be able to relate and identify with her. Jeremy Corrigan is sexy, alluring, and charismatic. Julia thinks she has finally met the “one,” but Jeremey may not be the perfect guy she thinks he is. There are lots of twists and turns in this book that you may not see coming. The pace of the book is fast as so much happens, but it’s at the right speed for a suspenseful, thriller book. The storyline is truly captivating! Love can make you do you crazy things! This book is well written and researched. It is clear Miss. Rico comes from a music background as the writing is sound! This book shows you another side of romance. The dark, intense, scary, and creepy side. You can just feel the fear, suspense, and torment leap off the pages! Total goosebumps! I would absolutely recommend this book as it was highly entertaining, engaging, exciting, and suspenseful! This book will take you on quite the adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat! I am happy to have found a fascinating new author and am eager to check out the other two books in this series! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

The writing in Reverie was beautiful. The author perfectly captured and brought me right in to the mindset of her characters. That added a whole new level to the reading experience. I felt like I was right there with them, in their darkness. Freddy Krueger isn't scary. Jason isn't scary. It's people like this that are scary, because you know they are really out there.

Lauren Rico - known to many classical radio listeners as a warm and welcoming host, has written a great page turner! And best of all, it's about classical music. And oh, the lengths (and depths) some musicians go in that competitive world...

Throughout my career as a musician I have run into some great people and also some very questionable, even terrible human beings. The characters in this book are dead on! This was a terrific read, very hard to put down. It is refreshing to have an author be so perfectly accurate with musical descriptions (a very rare find!).
