Synopsis from Goodreads:

Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems t have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.

Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?

My Review:

Wow. What a heart-warming and interesting story. I barely put this novel down. To top that off, it was also quite well written and flows fluently from one section to the next.

I appreciated that this novel had a beginning, some very captivating and at times comical drama in the middle, and a definite ending. The author does not rely on erotic scenes to carry this story forward, but rather develops amazing relationships between her characters. By basing her storyline on these characters and their budding relationships she creates a very solid story that is hard to beat.

I absolutely fell in love with some of the characters in this novel. I couldn’t believe how extremely well developed they were. They were also developed in such a way that they were quite real and very approachable. Their actions are also consistent with their personalities, allowing the reader to better relate to the characters.

As a whole, this was a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these characters and would definitely recommend it to others.
