    ”Renee Maybe is not an acceptable answer That’s like saying you’re a little bit pregnant and or caught a touch of the breast cancer Deep dpwn you know whether or not you love someone” This book popped up while I was looking at KA’s Rock Chicks As all my friends on her know I am a sucker for a great Cover And I really liked this one This book was ok Short but Ok It was kind of YA but they were mid 20’s Renee and Justine have been best friends for over 10 years They even moved from Boston to California together They did everything together and shared everything Including the same boyfriend apparently Renee caught Justine in Bed with her then boyfriend David So she did the only thing she could think of She ran home to Boston New Apartment new job new life The n she wakes up in her new apartment and can’t help but follow the music upstairs ”I woke up and heard one of my favourite Jeff Buckley songs but I had to come here as I have never heard that acoustic version of ‘Lover You Shouldn’t Have Come Over’ before I have a few live albums of his but the you were playing was just Brilliant” Dylan raised his eyebrows “Well I’m flattered” “Huh?” “I’m flattered” he repeated “What do you mean you’re flattered?” “Well you can search long and hard but you’re never going to find that version of that song” “Oh okay why not?” “ Because that wasn’t Jeff Buckley’s version It was mine” And so their friendship begins Based on music They have amazing chemistry He’s a womanizer she loves him but doesn’t want to ruin the relationship He finally realises he wants when he see’s her with another man This is friends tuned to Lovers story mixed with Music and Rock’n’Roll heartache groupies band turning big and everything It really was a cute story how she helped him cure his fear of stage fright to start being one of the biggest underground Indie bands around How their relationship turned to them not being able to get enough of each other Rekindling the relationship with Justine And fighting for their each other in a Renee and Dylan kind of way view spoiler oh and a baby on the way hide spoiler

    First thing download Jeff Buckley's album GraceThe book started a bit slow for me but the mention of Jeff Buckley early on and the take on the lack of uality in modern music had me hooked This story could have easily just been pages of rants of the lack of talent and meaning of current artists and I would have given it 5 stars I cried through my teenage heartache to this album Last Goodbye was my official end of relationship anthemSo the start of this had me worried I was concerned that the start was going to be a high school romance although I am just barely in my 30s part of me feels too old for teen romance well the part of my brain that remembers that I am a true living adult that is But it soon fast forwards through high school and college straight into a get your claws out moment This causes Renee who uprooted to LA for school from Boston to find herself back home and literally crashing into Dylan Although Dylan does not come across overly hot he has that skinny soulful rocker look I am hooked Renee and Dylan form a friendship and before she knows it she is in deep but is it worth the risk of heart and friendship to reveal the truth? Damn straight it isThe best part of this story is that it is still youthful and lacks the intense heart breaking rock n' roll drama that is typical of any story that has the word Rock Star or Band in the book's summary There is drama but it does not destroy your will to live or continue with the book You ultimately don't end up disliking the characters yelling obscenities into your e reader or trying to figure out if throwing your e reader against the wall is covered under your protection plan Overall this was a very sweet romance I was very pleased with the story and the book It did not help that the theme of music was something I often scream at my radio as the most recent chart topping auto tuned product is playing Seriously do yourself a favor and listen to some Jeff Buckley he is seriously underrated and the fact that we were given just a limited number of years to have had a chance to hear him is a real shame but he left us with some amazing real music

    Put the words “rock and roll” together in a title and it’s almost sure to be a hit for me Betrayed by her boyfriend and best friend Renee leaves her job as a musical journalist and returns to her hometown to mend her broken heart That’s where she meets her new neighbor Dylan a very talented musician who is held back by stage fright An almost instantaneous attraction occurs between them He’s playing her song and it’s speaking volumes to her They share a passion for music and much They also have issues that must be dealt with in order to take the relationship furtherThe mixture of sweet and sassy dialogue between Renee and Dylan flows smoothly making this one especially enjoyable The move from friends to lovers status happened a little too uickly for my complete satisfaction However what a small price to pay for such an otherwise uality read Another tiny point of contention was the almost desperate need for an epilogue to this story It ended much too uickly I was left asking myself what sweet music Dylan and Renee might be living life to in their future togetherThis reader is a sucker for a cool book cover too And those cute pink high tops caught my attention And I’m really really glad they did because this was a really fun to read book REALLY

    My SummaryRenee is a music journalist living in LA with her childhood best friend They both moved out there to go to UCLA and decided to stay once they graduated Then Renee got involved with a co worker but she had some doubts about their relationship One day after Renee comes home from an out of town trip she finds her best friend and boyfriend in bed together She flees the scene and moves home to Boston Once in Boston she finds an apartment and is searching for a job She meets Dylan who is her upstairs neighbor They don't hit it off right away but Renee is definitely attracted to him One night she hears music coming from upstairs so she investigates Turns out that Dylan is a talented musician but has never performed live Renee encourages him to take that step and as their friendship develops he makes the move to join a band that Renee knows Renee and Dylan grow closer and closer eventually getting together as a couple Renee is still hurt by her best friend's betrayal so she tends to be a bit paranoid about Dylan and other women After a bad fight Renee heads home to find her ex waiting on her doorstep Dylan gets the wrong impression and they break up During this time Renee tries to heal from her past so that she can move forward with Dylan She just hopes it isn't too late My TakeAnytime I see that a story involves romance and music I'm pretty much sold So when I saw this tour come up I signed up right away I loved that is was set in Boston I lived there at one time and it's my favorite city Even though the story was somewhat predicatable I still enjoyed it I really liked Dylan I mean I wasn't swoony over him but I liked him a lot I liked the relationship that he and Renee develop I think he was perfect for her and definitely helped her to realize what love was really supposed to feel like As for Renee I liked her but wanted to smack her sometimes I understand the feeling of wanting to run away from a bad situation but I really had hoped she would have made a stronger statement with her friend She was hurt that her friend betrayed her than she was about her boyfriend cheating I would be hurt too but you can bet that I would've been vocal about it As I said before it was predictable and I would've liked to see music intergrated into the story but I would recommend this book Overall it was a sweet easy read It's a good story to read if you're looking for uick romantic read

    First I would like to thank AToMR tours for allowing me to be a part of this tour When I first saw this book cover and then read the blurb I said I have to read this book ASAP and be a part of this tour First the author Rachel is from Boston MA AKA Bean Town and I live an hour from there but I am always in Boston hanging out enjoying all there is to enjoy and music is one of the things I love the most about Boston Every summer they have music on the commons and all different bands play and people come from all over to hear them playRenee is happy she has everything she could want in life Moving to a new place with her best friend and having the best boyfriend is great too but then Renee catches her best friend in bed with her boyfriend It is a total douche move on his and her BFF's part but it jump starts something in Renee and she decides to go back to the only place she feels comfortable and that place is Boston They say home is where the heart is and that becomes so true for Renee When she goes home to Boston she moves into this place where she feels is best for her Then she meets DylanDylan is playing this music and she thinks it is the artist but when she comments on the song she finds out it is Dylan who is singing it Shocked that she could find someone who has the same love of music she and Dylan become friends As time goes on she and Dylan develop romantic feelings for one another but as all relationships go if you have an ex and are trying to move on to the next there is always going to be problems and people putting their tow cents in when they don't even have a penny to rub together Needless to say they have to fight through some things but through it all they learn what is right for themselvesI really have to say that I LOVE LOVED this book I love music and this book just drew me in and I could not put it down Have you ever just connected with a person and had to fight to be with them? Well if you have this book is for you and if you haven't this book is for you Music and Romance the two go hand in hand What will you do for love? What will you do for Music?

    275 StarsI have to be honest and say that Sound Bites is probably the first HarperImpulse title I haven't totally enjoyed Don't get me wrong it is OK and if you have a few hours to fill you could do alot worse But I feel that the story has so much potential that is still screaming for release I have to say that it does contain the best break the ice line I have ever read in the fact that it is also the worst break the ice line I have ever read as wellNice child molester van you got thereLOL The above had me laughing for a good couple of minutes basically because it is so un pc blunt and wholly inappropriate that I absolutely loved it There is alot of dialogue in the book that is pretty blunt not so un pc and it is refreshingly funny in parts because of it but on the whole the book just didn't gel together well for meSound Bites is set around Renee and Dylan the first 40% of the book was uite enjoyable I liked their uirky similarities with music and Renee's determination to get Dylan's talent out in the mainstream also the fact that they both had feelings for each other but didn't realise it made it cute and enjoyable But then for some reason as soon as they actually got together they reverted from a couple of mid twenty somethings back to teenagers This transformation was pretty conclusive as well dialogue actions reactions and their general behaviour towards each other just struck me as pretty juvenile which is a shame as I was really enjoying the book up to that pointIn summary I would definitely read another book by Rachel K Burke as I think she has extreme potential Sound Bites was enjoyable I just feel that the second half of the book was a little rushed and could have done with a little further editingre writes to keep up with the uality of the first half ARC provided through Netgalley in exchange for the above honest review

    Remember how I've been rambling the past weeks about book were the girl and the guy are perfect for each other fight make me suffer and then they're back together happily ever after and how they were pissing me off? This one follows the same storyline BUT I LOVED IT It was so different in many ways allow me to startRenee has had to endure some pretty crappy situations like the huge betrayal of her boyfriend and best friend uitting her dream job and going back to her home town But life always works it's way around bad situations and bring good stuff Meet Dylan Cavallari I Loved Dylan he wasn't your typical bad boy he was I'm not sure how to explain it of an introvert he didn't show much of his emotions and carried an 'I don't care' look but deep down he was so sweet and honest and scared and sighRenee and Dylan are meant for each other and soon they both are in a relationship I wished the author had shown a bit of them as a couple though let me say that the little glimpses here and there were soooo worth it Dylan always said the perfect things even if he wasn't exactly sentimentalWhat made the novel so great was Renee's voice it had been a while since I fell in love with a character like this it was so funny being inside her head and every time I picked up the book I just jumped right in I laughed out loud many times and the ending was perfect with a capital P Highly Recommend

    THAT WAS AWESOME I got this book stewing for a long time Im such an idiot that i didn't read it immediately But this a read really worth staying late for I just suck when there is music involved in a book or arrogant boys with a loving sidedamn where are guys like that in real life? Renee move was a damn good one and a very depressing thing too but who would fault her right? Her personality was really inspiring her stubborn attitude to be followed just a common we have and her pushing of Dylan to the right path to be admired I just love her spirit and was very thankful that she chanced herself of going to Manhattan to see Dylan I love Dylan's no non sense attitude when it comes to Renee's attitude or other girls you just gotta love a guy who thinks for himself and just know when to not give you shit
