Ivy Hudson’s relationship with Blake Chamberlain ended when she discovered him in a compromising position and in the aftermath, she channeled all of her hurt and anger into the song that launched her singing career. In the years since, her numerous breakups have continued to inspire her most popular songs but her latest breakup song results in a major public backlash against her. Needing a retreat from the public eye and generate some positive publicity, Ivy reluctantly returns to her small home town to use her celebrity status to help raise much needed funds for the high school’s new gym. Much to Ivy’s dismay, Blake figures prominently in the upcoming fundraising efforts and the passage of time has done nothing to dim her hurt or diminish their smoking hot desire for one another.
Ivy is a wonderful character and it is such a joy getting to know the woman behind the successful career. She has never forgotten her humble beginnings and she is still very down to earth. Her anger and hurt over Blake’s betrayal have not lessened with time but she is able to put aside her feelings for the sake of the fundraiser. Despite her successful career, Ivy has a few insecurities that a nemesis from her childhood exploits at every turn.
Ah, poor Blake. His mistake in judgment all those years ago indirectly destroyed his career and he is just now finally beginning to bounce back when Ivy returns to town. He readily admits that Ivy’s anger and hurt are justified but he also unfairly blames her for his football career crashing and burning.Read more ›
I loved the older characters in Facing the Music. Old southern broads with quick wit and a say-anything attitude are always a win-win in my book!
It’s quirky and fun. A great book for the beach and the pick up-put down habits summer brings with it. My only negative was the few repetitive conversations. Once I know what has happened, retelling it completely to other characters feels unnecessary and I just end up skim reading. Don’t let that deter you in any way, though. It was a perfect read for summer.
I know Ivy was freaking out about running into Blake the first time, but the way they saw each other for the first time in six years was absolutely hilarious. Even then, when they were still angry, the sexual tension between these two was sparking flames everywhere!
When Blake and Ivy finally call a truce and forgive each other for the past mistakes their friendship starts to grow, and they start to get closer to one another, but Ivy's mortal enemy from school, Lydia, has many other ideas on who Blake should be with, and what should happen to Ivy. I really despised Lydia's character and if I could have strangled her, I definitely would have.
This book is definitely a refreshing read, even though there was some drama. I loved all the tension and LOL moments in this book as well. I was always rooting for Blake and Ivy to get back together, and their course back to one another is a bumpy road, but I enjoyed every single second of it!
The only part of this book that I felt could have been better is the ending. I wish it would have been more than what it was, especially with all the craziness that Blake and Ivy had been through previously. I do hope we get to see some of Ivy and Blake in the next book in this series.
Facing the Music is a quick fast paced romance. If you're looking for a famous rock star, a hot football hunk, and a ton of history between them that causes you to laugh and scream all at once, definitely add Facing the Music to your TBR list today!
I was hooked from the first chapter.
Ivy is a famous music star who is known for writing songs that are less than flattering for her ex's. It is her way of working through bad break ups and she does not hold back. Just ask Blake. He was the first one to break her heart. He is caught with his hand in a cookie jar that isn't hers and well, the nation soon found out that...size matters.
These two have not talked in six years. But thanks to Blake's meddling grandmother, Ivy is back in Rosewood for a benefit concert to help raise money to rebuild the local high school's gym that was destroyed by a tornado. And guess what? Blake just so happens to be the coach!
Ivy figures she can just hide out at her parents cabin and not see Blake until absolutely necessary. She should've known better. Oh, let me tell you, the first time they see each other is hilarious. Poor Ivy finds herself in a compromising position and wouldn't you know the last person she wants to see, just so happens to be the one who comes along to witness her embarrassment!
I loved Ivy and Blake's story! It is just an overall feel good, second chance love story. There is some angst but it is not overdone and issues are resolved rather quickly to keep the story moving along at a nice pace. There are also quite a bit of laughs. Just a wonderfully, well rounded story from start to finish.
And while reading, I found myself wanting to know more about the supporting characters, like Pepper and Grant. So, I was super excited to get to the end of Facing the Music and see that we will be getting more of the characters from Rosewood!
