Karen was a great heroine. She was timid and shy, yes, but she was lovable and wonderful. She had her fair share of inner demons, and while I wish they were focused on a little more, they were very real and well done.
Conner was drop dead sexy and sweet. Who wouldn't swoon after a hunky Irishman!? Once you see past his walls, you find the sweet gentleman that Karen falls for. He's got some tough struggles and they're completely believable. Similar to Karen, I wish we'd gotten to see more of his past and understand a little more about his life in Ireland. Instead, it's mostly glossed over, other than the debacle with Ruth.
One thing that I really enjoyed about their romance was the fact that it wasn't cliched. It wasn't one of those kiss early on, flirt around, get mad, get together, tear apart, get back together kinda books. I don't want to ruin it, but their relationship develops very quietly and then springs itself on them. It seems to take them aback just as much as it does the reader. Once they're together, things are lovely and, while they do have their fair share of struggles once they're together, they work through them.
Having Natasha, Darrell, Clarissa, Neil, and Jasmine in this book so heavily was also a treat. It wasn't just a glimpse into their "perfect happily ever after"s, but rather we actually see them struggle with their relationships.
The book was well-written and a treat to read. I was actually disappointed when it was over (which was far too soon, thanks to staying up till the wee hours to finish it). I look forward to the next Fenbrook Academy novel!
Karen is a cello player that dreams of one day playing for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. That is her one and only dream and she strives to achieve it and ignores the rest of her life forcing her to be shy and somewhat introverted. A few months before the big show her duo partner is hurt and she has no choice but to ask Fenbrooke Academy's rock guitar god Connor to replace him. And that's where the fun begins.
Connor who is on a scholarship, is about to flunk out of the academy. He was more concerned about partying and living up life in New York before he was forced to go back to Belfast, Ireland. Their relationship in the beginning is very rocky. Both assume that they each either hate or feel sorry for the other one. Neither of them wanting to admit to each other that there was something between them.
I love the way that this story slowly built upon itself and that the main characters actually became friends and helped the other in their personal lives before the romantic aspect of it took over. It made the book become more realistic for me.
This is definitely a must read.
This is book 2 in the Fenbrook academy series, but it can be read as a stand alone. However, I recommend that you read book 1, either before or after this book, as it adds a bit of subtext into the lives of Karen's friends.
The main story revolves around Karen, a music student who is left partnerless for a music recital, fearing that she won't be able to graduate, she turns to Conner a fellow student but known as the hot, Irish bad boy, with failing grades.
The romance between Karen and Connor develops gradually and over time but when it does it is sweet and scorching. Not only is their story super awesome, but I also loved the fact that this book revisited the lives of the characters in book 1 (Natasha and Darrel and Clarissa and Neil).
The writing in this book is descriptive and engaging, overall, it sucks you in. Great story with no cliffy and a HEA! I can't wait to read Neil's and Clarissa's story and Jasmine's!
Then I heard, very clearly, the sound of a stream of liquid.
"Oh my God! Are you taking a leak, while you're on the phone to me?!"
Hey I'd be flattered if someone was talking on the telly with me while they were taking a leak it means they care enough about you to not want to let you go. Did I mention how innocent she is? No well let me just give ya a little reminder:
I twisted and pulled open the drawer next to my bed. All four boxes of condoms were sitting there, cellophane removed and lids bent back. I looked at him questioningly.
He blinked a couple of times. "I'm not fussy," he said at last."
Yeah I liked this book.
It's so great and you will not put it down and it's a bigger treat that you get to follow Natasha and Darrell's story threw this book.
