After an overdose three years ago that fed the frenzied tabloids, Becca has done everything she can shed her spoiled heiress, party girl image, and while working at a magazine more interested in fashion and gossip than articles of substance may not be her dream journalism career, it's at least an independent step in the right direction. But when her editor expects her to sell out the man she's been sponsoring at NA, the one who's worked his way into her life and her heart, she's faced with betraying the man she loves or going back to the family who caused her to use in the first place.
The Verdict: While the subject matter is a little heavier than my normal reading preference, I couldn't very well pass up the chance to read the fifth book in a series I've very much enjoyed so far. I wasn't sure I was going to like the double addict angle, but I should have known better. Everything I've read from Crista McHugh has turned out to be wonderful, and this one was no exception.
Ethan was a nice surprise, a rock star going solo after his band fell apart and trying to curb his drug addiction at the same time. He could have been filled with rage, cold to anyone who tried to help him, and I guess on a certain level he was. But he was also determined and desperate to stay clean, and it was that hope that shined through at even his worst moments. Of course, a rich and famous guy who's good-looking to boot is bound to catch the attention of the woman designated to help him find his way back to a productive life, and he had a bit of the cocky swagger one might expect. But at the same time, his intentions were good. Sure, he was interested in getting her alone in a bedroom, but he put their friendship and recovery first, and before long, he was supporting her just as much as she was supporting him.
Becca was a rather interesting character as well, a wealthy and spoiled daughter of a hotel tycoon who fell into drugs and onto the pages of all the tabloids. But three years later, she was living with a roommate, working a rather unrewarding job, and making her weekly NA meetings. She was reaching out and helping Ethan before she even knew who he was, and that seemed to make their budding feelings so much more believable. I also love that the whole “no dating while in recovery” rule didn't get thrown in like I expected. I get that it's a very real thing, but so is the very human tendency to want to find love with someone who truly understands their struggles.
I wasn't so sure about the whole submissive thing she pulled in the bedroom, but the two didn't take it far enough to really delve into fetish territory — thank goodness! But it did show just how much thought the author puts into making every story and every character so much different than the last. That's actually one of my favorite things about the series, that even though I know I'll probably end up loving each book, I really have no idea what to expect when I turn to the first page.
A Seductive Melody echoes some of the seriousness that Breakaway Hearts had, and the plot is just as engaging, delivering the right amount of sweet and romance to counterbalance any angst, and this is one series in which every book can truly stand on its own. If you love contemporary romance, just grab the whole series and dive in anywhere. You won't be able to stop reading.

A Seductive Melody grabbed me from the very beginning. It is the story of Ethan, a musician with a heroin addiction, and Rebecca, a recovering addict, estranged from her parents, who find each other at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting. Among the reasons I enjoyed this novel so much: (1) A bad-boy musician and a once-troubled heiress straightening out their lives makes for great drama; (2) the budding romance between Rebecca and Ethan and the growing sexual chemistry/tension between them was enthralling; (3) the strength of the hero and heroine in overcoming/recovering from an addiction is impressive; (4) the blending of two religions is portrayed in a positive manner; and (5) the way the hero and heroine resolved personal conflicts is gratifying.
I devoured the book in one evening and wish I hadn't read it so quickly because now I have to wait for the next brother’s story. I am also sad that there are only two more brothers to go! The Kelly Brothers series is about a family of seven brothers who are charming, successful in their careers, and ready to find their companions. The female protagonists are strong, intelligent, and appealing. I love how the brothers consult one another in each story. The books can each stand alone, but I suggest you read them all because they are comprised by lovable male and female protagonists, each story deals with a unique topic, and the stories handle/resolve conflicts admirably. This pleasant series includes sweet romance, steam, minimal angst, and leaves the reader feeling good about life.
I had just finished reading a book that was good, but for some reason it dragged on. Not so with A Seductive Melody, as I finished it in a record time, one sitting. It was such a fun, relaxing, enjoyable read, something Crista McHugh continues to give us time after time in this series. The background storyline about two people trying to build their life, after overcoming addiction was very good, and kept my interest throughout.
Becca was a fabulous heroine; beautiful, smart, savvy, strong. Ethan was a swoonworthy rock star, who was trying to get himself clean, after losing his best friend to drugs. Becca is the one who will help Ethan get past his doubts, and together they help each other with their own issues that caused their addictions. It was so sweet to watch them fall in love, as we fell in love with both of them. Great story, great family, great couple and wonderful book to read. If you have not read the Kelly Brothers series, what are you waiting for.
