On Tour - Present Day
Lacy Dawson has writer’s block, or in her case, song writer’s block. Since her fiancĂ© died, she’s been having trouble coming up with anything new. She thought joining an anonymous online forum might help her come up with some new material, but she found a possible new love interest instead. She only knows him by his forum screen name, but talking to him is the best part of her day.
Eli enjoys chatting with people in the forum, but no one more than this one girl he knows only by her username. But now that Eli’s band is on tour with Lacy as the new opening act, he feels as if he’s cheating on his online love interest. Little does either of them know, it’s not just a physical attraction, they already like each other’s personalities—if either of them could admit to being a part of the Song Writer’s Anonymous forum.
With a definite You’ve Got Mail vibe, LOVE STRUCK is the perfect book to pick up if you need a sweet and sappy romance. This book flows like the music that rules Lacy’s and Eli’s lives, soft and folksy, and then building to a huge crescendo. The music itself feels like another character in the novel, and I’m sure there will be plenty of readers who wish they could hear the songs written during the course of the book.
It’s hard to pick just what makes this book so special, because it all blends so perfectly together to create a beautiful melody. Eli and Lacy’s love runs deep even before they meet in person, and when they do, it’s like fireworks. Well deserving of a Perfect 10 rating, LOVE STRUCK is not to be missed.
LOVE STRUCK is book two in the series, with book one, MISS MATCH (June 2015) featuring Lacy’s older sister Andrea. LOVE STRUCK can easily be read as a stand-alone.
