As far as the romance is concerned, you won't get any complaints from me. I loved Jonas and Kira together, but I also liked who they were on their own. They were not who I expected them to be, and that's a really good thing because they've surpassed said expectations, turning out to be better versions than I'd hoped for. The supporting cast of characters, wonderfully led by Vivi and followed by Jonas's band mates and best friends--Nixon (guitarist), Quinn (drummer), and Ethan (tour manager)--and Kira's family--Adam (lawyer and older brother) and Mr. Cassidy (father), stood out but never stole the spotlight, although I loved the chapter with Adam's POV. Tim Paige and Erin Mallon narrating Sarina Bowen's story was the icing atop what was already the proverbial cake I could not get enough of. Talk about perfect casting! I'm giving Lies & Lullabies five stars.
Lies & Lullabies is everything you’d expect from Sarina Bowen. A colorful small town in New England, a wonderful storyline, and an amazing cast of characters that will make you swoon, laugh and curse (at least a bit).
Lies & Lullabies is a second chance romance about a small-town-girl and an undercover rock star that spent a special summer together and then went their separate ways. He was left with the sweetest memories, while she was left with their child. Five years later, a fluke encounter brings them together again, but things are way more complicated than either of them ever realized.
I loved Lies & Lullabies. I loved everything about it. Sarina Bowen is a skilled storyteller, there’s no doubt about that. She has a way with words that leaves you in awe of her talent every single time. The story flows, the characters are well-rounded and lovable, and the settings come alive to give this book her magic touch. It’s a delightful story about regrets and second chances, true love, the importance of family, and forgiveness.
Jonas and Kira both have regrets. When they first met five years ago, they were going through a hard time in their lives, and the connection they found in each other helped them heal. But sometimes feelings can get scary and overwhelming, and people don’t necessarily make the right choices. Right and wrong are never black and white, and the beauty of this story, if you take the time to understand where both Jonas and Kira were coming from, is that it’s never too late to be brave enough to put the past behind you and look forward to what the future might hold.
I loved Jonas and Kira together. Their chemistry is off the charts. You can feel the intensity between them, the emotional energy that goes beyond attraction and lust they forged five years ago, when they first became friends and then more. I really loved the slow burn of their reunion, how they dealt with the secrets and lies and old wounds, in order to move forward and forgive themselves and each other. Lies & Lullabies is definitely an emotional roller coaster. And definitely the best kind.
Vivi, Jonas and Kira’s four-year-old, is a delight. You can’t help but fall in love with her, just as Jonas did. It will take less than five minutes. She’s such a fun kid! So smart and witty. I also loved her relationship with her uncle Adam, and whenever she and Jonas were together. And Adam simply steals the show. He’s such a great guy. He’s the best brother ever, and he even got some action with Ethan, Jonas’s friend and tour manager. Let’s just say that everyone will end up begging for these two to get their own story. I can guarantee it. We also get glimpses of Quinn and Nixon that will make everyone yearn for the next books in the series.
I would give Lies & Lullabies enough stars to fill up the sky, but I guess Five will have to do. I can’t recommend it enough, it’s truly a wonderful story that will make your heart smile and fill you with joy. And if you’re into audiobooks, give this one a try. It’s outstanding. Seriously. Tim Paige and Erin Mallon rocked it, and quite literally.
I loved Lies & Lullabies. I loved everything about it. Jonas and Kira’s story was sweet, endearing and swoony in the best kind of way. Sarina Bowen’s skilful, engaging writing and her effortless storytelling made this story an absolute delight to read. The story easily flows, the characters are full of depth, and her words come alive to give this book her magic touch. It’s truly a beautiful story about second chances, true love, and forgiveness.
Although the focus of this story wasn't necessarily about the angsty rockstar lifestyle, there is still a lot of rockstar dynamic going on - and Sarina Bowen did a brilliant job setting this series up, arousing my curiosity and keeping me in anticipation about this band and these characters. I'm on tenderhooks to see where things go from here with these characters. I am already fully invested in this series and I’m absolutely dying for more!

This book made it basically acceptable and I enjoyed all the characters involved. I feel like Sarina Bowen is really good at writing the sweetness of romance books, and easing you into the characters’ worlds.
I’m intrigued to read Quinn’s book because there’s obviously a lot we don’t know, and I already know Nixon’s book will break my heart. I haven’t read Devney Perry before but based on loving Sarina Bowen’s books, and like Rebecca Yarros’, I feel like she’s in good enough company for me to give her a chance.
Kira spends a summer being friends with “John” who was there to relax & write some new material for his band. She had no idea who he was & she had her own personal issues but they had just one night before he left that had consequences.
Skip forward five years & they meet again when Kira visits her father at the same time John arrives for some relaxation with the rest of his band.
It was a gentle read with misunderstandings & a big secret in Vivi.
Well written & compelling story.
I enjoyed all the characters in this first of the Hush Notes series and look forward to getting to know them more in their own individual books.
Five years have passed since Jonas and Kira spent a special summer together...
How will he react when he learns that a lasting bond was formed and he now has 2 girls to share his heart with? Will Kira be brave enough to take the leap and trust her rockstar?
A great story with humour, heat and heart🥰
