Blue Notes by Carrie Lofty - #review

Blue Notes

For fans of Jamie McGuire and S.C. Stephens, a sizzling new adult novel featuring the tumultuous relationship between a young piano prodigy and a reluctant billionaire playboy—set against the vibrant backdrop of a New Orleans college campus.

After being bounced from foster family to foster family, Keeley, a talented pianist, is ready to start over as a junior at Tulane. But when she plays a small concert that attracts the attention of Jude, a brooding playboy and heir to an enormous fortune in the wake of his parents’ tragic death, suddenly Keeley’s life is thrown off balance once again.

Jude is the first person to confront her about the pain behind her music, and she struggles with whether or not to let him into her life, or to keep protecting herself from the hurt that relationships have caused her in the past. But Keeley’s about to learn that the melancholy young billionaire who appears to have everything he wants can open her eyes to exactly what she needs…

My Review ... 

"My, oh my, Keeley Chambers. " She takes my hand and gives it a squeeze. "I hope Jude doesn't break your heart, because I do like you." 
Hmmm so I wanted to like this because it had loads of potential but it ended up falling flat for me. :( 

It had many aspects I wanted to like, a supposingly strong female, and alpha male, drama, angst and love.  However, Jude who was supposed to be an alpha male but he just didn't quite cut it for me. And then the strong female ended up with the very frustrating woe is me martyr storyline which just grates on my sometimes. 

There was drama and angst but it didn't jive together for me and I just couldn't quite fall in love with either Keeley or Jude.  

The idea was good, elements were cute, while other parts made me wanting more.  

If you are wanting a cute not too deep NA book than this could fit the bill for most but unfortunately just not for me. 

2.5 to 2.75 Wanted more thumbs up!
