Title: Lies & Lullabies (Hush Note #1)
Author: Sarina Bowen
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐3/4
Genre: Contemporary Fiction Romance
Primary Characters: Jonas& Kira
Narration: Dual POV
Lies and Lullabies by Sarina Bowen is the first instalment in the Hush Notes series. It’s a rock star romance between lead singer Jonas & normal girl Kira. It’s a second chance love story. The story is not too focused on the rock band its more of family dynamics and relationship among each other and band mates.
Jonas and Kira first meet 5 years ago when Jonas spent sometime in the small town for few months to rejuvenate. Their friendship will be solid then and they depart each other without any contact. Now after 5 years Jonas and his team has stopped in the same place for a relaxing weekend. When Joans meets Kira, he has big surprise waiting for him. Will they be able to forget their differences and move forward? What sacrifices both of them are ready to make?
The friendship and banter between main protagonist were good. I totally loved the stuffed doll name. Writing style was little messed up for my taste. It had some up’s and down. Initial part of the book toggled between past and present too much without proper sequence.
Secondary characters: Jonas bandmate Quinn seems bada**, but jury is pending due to her limited entry in book. Nixon seems troublesome, hope he has more depth to him. Adam is lovely, I just couldn’t stop myself from falling in love with him. Vivi is sweet, but I felt she was sort of side tracked.
Overall, this is a good one time read. Recommended for people looking for Rockstar romance.
I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.

Blurb as per good reads
Once upon a time, he gave me a summer of friendship, followed by one perfect night. We shared a lot during our short time together. But he skipped a few crucial details.
I didn’t know he was a rock star.
I didn’t know his real name.
Neither of us knew I’d get pregnant.
And I sure never expected to see him again.
Five years later, his tour bus pulls up in Nest Lake, Maine. My little world is about to be shattered by loud music and the pounding of my own foolish heart.
