My Tease for this week comes from:
First - The Blurb:
At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.
Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…
Second - The Tease:
My lips softly close over hers, and then I part them, and we do it all over again, but with less hesitation and more desperation. Her hands are now running down my back, and my hand is slipping to her waist, and my tongue is exploring the incredible way hers dances against mine to a song only our mouths can hear. The desperation and speed at which we're escalating this kiss make it apparent that we're both attempting to get as much out of each other as we can before the moment ends.
Because we both know it has to end.
Third - My Thoughts:
OMG! I don't even know where to begin. I absolutely adored this book. Not just because the story sucked me in and kept me captivated from beginning to end, but also because it provided me with a very unique reading experience. For those of you who have read it, you will probably know what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't, let me explain...
As you can see from the blurb above, the story is about Sydney - an aspiring musician, and Ridge, a guitar playing song writer. While suffering from a broken heart, Sydney becomes captivated by her neighbor (Ridge) who in turn becomes captivated by her. Forming a friendship and discovering that they have a common interest - music - they begin to work together writing songs. And as you can guess, working so closely together, they develop feelings for each other.
So, what makes this story so different from the rest?
The fact that you can actually listen to the songs as Sydney and Ridge create them.
In writing this novel, Colleen Hoover teamed up with Griffin Peterson and made the songs real. Being able to physically listen to them as they are created and appear in the book is an amazingly emotional experience, one not to be missed.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
