“Inevitably, we’re forced to make sacrifices. It’s when we sacrifice the ones we love for the things we shouldn’t that changes us.”
Oh I loved this book!! This was the first book I have read by J. Saman and I could tell from the first few pages that I was going to fall hard with this one. This is a second chance romance between Lyric, a world famous rock-star’s daughter, and Jameson, the boy she knew from childhood. I was immediately sucked into their story feeling every emotion from Lyric in the Prologue. Oh this girl was so heartbroken! After experiencing a couple of big heartbreaks of my own, and a long distance relationship, I could empathize with Lyric on so many levels and I was drawn to her. The author did a fab job making their story so real and raw.
Although you know from the beginning that Jameson is going to break Lyric’s heart – you can’t help but fall for this guy. He is my tall, dark, and handsome dream. He’s a flirt, a charmer, has the dimples, the muscles, the brains and plays college baseball!!! OH MY GOD I AM IN LOVE WITH HIM!!!!! What I also adored about Jameson is he was so open and honest with how he felt about Lyric – he didn’t hold back with her. Their relationship evolved exactly how you envision a friends to lovers to soulmates story. There were hurdles, challenges, long-distance struggles, pessimistic friends, and growing pains; but there was also lust, laughs, passion, private moments shared between the two of them as “friends”, intimate hugs that opened their eyes to more, and a love that is rare and beautiful.
I cried, laughed, and swooned hard with this book. The secondary characters, and the settings of Nashville, NYC, and SoCal were perfect. I easily could have placed myself right into this story and fallen for Jameson myself. Well done J. Saman! I’m officially a fan!! XO
