"Neve Wilder has done it again, but even better! I am so infatuated with this story, and these character's. Owen and Dan have taken the top of my favorite couples this year! Their quirky back and forth, the endearing way they care for each other and love each other. Everything about this book was excellence from start to finish! If you like music, if you like the older somewhat jaded and kinda Grumpy MC and the sweet, lovable and quirky younger man, then this is your jam!" --WickedGoodReads
"I was intrigued by the blurb but literally was blown out of the water by this emotional book. It challenged my concept on what to expect but in the most wonderful ways. This was not the typical rock star story I was expecting. I was immediately absorbed in the men's lives and their differences fascinated me." --Bayou Book Junkie
"There's just something about Dan that got to me right away. I could almost hear his voice in my head, with a slow, smoky-sweet drawl that would melt your insides when he sang." --Love Bytes Reviews

There are a lot of secondary characters, but they work, for the most part (I was a little lost about some of the characters that show up for really no purpose - like some of the record store customers - but, I guess that's real life. People come in and out of our circle).
Even the water leak plot point felt natural. Some authors would have belabored the issue until it felt really manufactured. But Wilder just puts it out there like a natural progression of life events, without making a huge deal about it, and it just flows into the story (no pun intended). I think that's why the characters feel so REAL. Life just happens and they are dealing with it. So different from authors that rely on overused, ridiculous tropes like coincidence!teacher or coincidence!boss. Wilder's stories just ARE. They aren't artificial or contrived.
My biggest complaint is that Wilder doesn't write fast enough for me to jump right into Aiden's (and I presume Jessup's) story.
Owen is pretty much my thoughts personified, but I love that he catches himself when he knows he's rambling. And Dan, Dan is sex in blue jeans and cowboy boots, but that's my opinion!
Neve Wilder brings the music scene alive with her gorgeous writing!
Resonance is a slow burn romance between an employer and an employee with an age-gap, but despite having two tropes that I don't really care for, usually, it managed to be so sweet and organic that it didn't bother me. The power imbalance was addressed and resolved, and the age difference wasn't overly underlined or made creepy.
The character were already familiar from Dedicated, and they really grew on me in this story. Both Owen and Dan were fully fleshed out characters that felt like real people. Often romance authors fall into the trap of writing caricatures of people for the sake of having the tools for hot sex scenes, but here the hot sex was just an added bonus.
While the romance is slow burn, the physical attraction isn't. And that's another thing I appreciate - authors not mixing up physical attraction for love. Also the fact that not all sex has to be penetrative. Seems obvious, but anyone who reads romance can attest to the fact that to some authors it isn't.
The pacing of this book was also on the slower side, and the conflicts were on the real life scale. When reading romance, you get the feeling that a character needs to have some huge trauma to be interesting or relatable, but to me the most interesting are the ones I could actually imagine knowing in real life.
This wasn't my favorite of Neve's, but it still one of my favorite romances of the year.
I really enjoy Neve's writing. She really knows how to draw me into the story. I couldn't wait to see how this story ended.
I voluntarily received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A lovely slow-burn romance between Daniel, 40 something owner of Grim's record store in Nashville and former recording star, and his younger, ditzy employee Owen, whom I absolutely loved. Dan came with baggage aplenty, and although he was aware of Owen, thought it best to keep strictly to employer/employee rules, but he couldn't resist being pulled into Owen's orbit 😍... We have a teeny, tiny catch-up with Les and Evan of Dedicated, meet Dan's younger, seemingly waste of space brother Aiden, and get to know some of the artists that Dan calls friends although he is a fairly private guy.
Hope the next one is about Aiden and Jessup Polk...there should be fireworks. 😉
