🎶 Listen to your heart 🎶
Blake has always followed her heart. She feels strongly and passionately and doesn't allow doubt or insecurity to stop her. So when, at 15 years old, she decided that Zach was meant to be hers, she did everything she could to make it happen. She learned guitar for him. She followed him around like a lost puppy. She sabotaged his relationships and even tried to trick him into affection. And no matter how many times he made it clear that they were NEVER going to happen... she didn't give up. She believed she knew his heart better than he did and worked even harder to make him see it. Fast forward ten years... and she was RIGHT!!

I've never read anything from this author before, but with this book, she sold me completely with her lyrical words. Despite how pathetic Blake seemed in so many ways, I couldn't help but root for her. I didn't get why she was such a glutton for punishment, but love makes us do crazy things. My only real hangup was the idea that her brother was so incredibly protective. It was almost obsessive. Why did he have so much pull? I understand friendship and loyalty and the idea of 'bro code', but everything he did was taking it too far. The author made him appear murderous. Considering their longtime friendship, I'd think he'd know Zach well enough to think he might be good enough for his sister. It was hard to stomach and I didn't like how everyone pussyfooted around him like he was the angry green giant. It was ridiculous.

However, the beauty of the relationship that blossomed and flourished between Zach and Blake kept me reading. I loved the push and pull between these two. I loved what they became when they finally decided to take the risk. And I loved how willing they were to prove their love, despite their audience or the potential for embarrassment. I'm thinking there's going to be a story for big brother Ash and I'm hoping the author works miracles to make me love him.

Book Synopsis
reputationSmall-town girl. America’s Sweetheart.
The biggest popstar in the world.
It began with one guy and then the next.
Until my reputation preceded me.
Yes, I dated them - all of them.
Yes, I also broke up with them.. All of them.
Was it too much? The world said yes. Too many, too quickly.
And my star began to flicker.
The world knew nothing about my life and yet, their judgement weighed on me like stone.
My reputation was falling faster than a shooting star and the only way to save it was with the boy who never wanted me.
Zach Parker was a singer, songwriter, and sexy as sin.
To him, I was just the neighbor’s little sister.
A pest that had grown into a famous annoyance.
Zach Parker wanted nothing to do with me.
But he could be tempted - with a stepping stone to fame, that is.
The plan was simple: Childhood Sweethearts Fall in Love on US Tour.
The plan was to let them see what they wanted to see: our ‘romance’ blossom right in front of their eyes.
A romance that Zach had made painfully clear to me years ago would never exist.
I’m told that it was the only thing that could repair my image.
So, every night I’ll stand on that stage and give Zach my heart piece by piece, note by note.
We’ll give them a show they’ll never forget - and a love story that I may not survive.
Because who cares that in order to put my reputation back together, I’ll have to tear my heart apart?
