Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.
Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?
When you’ve sworn off musicians and immediately find yourself attracted to another, you either need to dig your heels in more firmly or reevaluate your stand. Melody tells her best friend that she’s done with musicians for good, and within five minutes, is immediately attracted to Wolf. While their attraction is mutual, it’s not immediate on his behalf due to part of the past that he’s trying to get away from.
This book is your run-of-the-mill romance novel, where there is the generic obstacle of the past plus the present issue (past romances and career issues), but it’s light hearted and fun. Wolf (thank God, he’s not named Jack) is so much more than he is originally perceived, as is par with this type of romance novel. Melody (fun name, given the circumstances of the book) has had bad relationships in the past and is trying to keep her dream of being principal flutist in the dying field of orchestras and classical music; of which I feel there should be more of, but I digress.
All-in-all, I enjoyed this book as a light-hearted, fun read. At $2.99, it’s worth it for the short time that you’ll read it on vacation or before you go to bed, or just on your breaks. It is sweet, funny and will make you smile. It’s not necessarily thought provoking, but then again, you always need a break from the depth and complications of some books, and the harshness of reality. If that’s what you need, then this is the book for you.
3.5 out of 5. Enjoy!
