I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
I signed up for this ARC because I was intrigued with the Blurb. This is my first time I read a book of Dawn L Chiletz.
Books starts with Natalia contemplating and finally making a decision to change her life for good and getting into a plane at last minute. Her goal is simple, new identity, new job, new place, never look back and keep the secrets to her past life locked. She meets Sebastian in plane and she never would have guessed her life would turn up and down post that. Sebastian ask her to be his fake girlfriend for a while to get rid of Bella. Talia thinks its only temporary and agrees to that. Everything becomes havoc when she meets both Sebastian and Bella again on the first day of her new job.
Talia as Sebastian calls her is feisty and complicated and had attitude for days. Sebastian is cocky, disciplined, polished sexy musician in the company she works. He is the young principle concertmaster in the sym and the sym is blessed to have him as fist Violin. I liked the way Talia is, she is sassy, a little jumpy and a hot mess when she first arrives in her new surroundings. She is learning to behave in the new world.She has had an extremely hard upbringing which has caused her a lot of grief, yet has overcome all that in her own way. Obstacles are thrown in Talia and Sebastian’s path testing their love as her secrets are revealed.
Amy, you always see the best in people, don’t you?
She Shrugs. ” I Try”
I liked Dawn’s writing style. It was simple and smooth. Plot moves in an study pace with equal amount of drama and suspense. I was in total love with all the secondary characters in this book. Amy, I totally loved her. she is one of the most positive person. Inspite of knowing she is better than Talia and deserves Talia’s position as an event manager doesn’t waver her spirts or resents her. Its not easy to be like that real time and very tough to find such people. Too sweet of a person. Cherese had her own way of leaving print. Bella, inspite of being a bitch we all would love to hate, the way she acts matured and takes up the responsibility to correct things in the end was amazing.
“Before you know it, they aren’t only a string. They’re a connection”
Over all, its a good realistic well developed plot line with a nice dose of humor. Go ahead read for yourself and enjoy.
