After an embarrassing stint on a reality-TV music competition years ago, Riley vowed never to sing again. Now she’s behind the scenes, working at the prestigious Sound Sync recording studio, and life is looking up. But then Garrett Jamieson, the oldest brother in the famous Jamieson brothers band, crashes into her world.

Garrett has hit rock bottom, and he is desperate to reinvent himself. After calling in a few favors, he ends up working at Sound Sync to learn the ropes of record producing from the industry’s best. And he can’t believe his luck when he discovers that Riley has been keeping a secret—she is an amazing singer. By producing her album, he’s sure to top the record charts again. But Garrett is forced to use every trick in his arsenal to persuade the sassy girl to record.

Riley refuses to sing—or even entertain the thought of it—and sparks fly as Garrett finally meets his match. But in the heat of the moment, one stolen kiss changes everything. Will Riley be the first person to finally rein Garrett in, or will Garrett succeed in getting Riley back under the spotlight?


I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

This is a sweet book for young adults. I mean, there’s really something that can be said about young love. After all, we were all young once, right? This book kinda reminded me how it felt to be young and in love.

Granted, I wasn’t a singer and all that, but the truth of the matter was that young love seems more complicated than it actually is. The young adults always feel like their love life problems are the biggest in the world. That’s not true. Young love is the best kind because it’s simple and does not have the same issues and hang ups as mature relationships.

The hero and the heroine in this book were a great match. The plot was never boring or dullc. The pacing was just right to keep readers entertained without putting them to sleep or confusing them as well. All in all, this book is a nice, clean story that any YA fan should check out. It’s great for girls who are young or new adults. It has the kind of vibe that caters so much on the young at heart as well.
