It is such a pleasure, and a privilege, to be able to review books on Prism Book Alliance. When I get an opportunity to review a book I have been wanting to read for a long time it is even more exciting. So when I heard that Blue Notes was re-edited and being released for review I waved my arms in the air and said, “Oh! Me! Me! Please!”

A Blue Notes Novel
Blame it on jet lag. Jason Greene thought he had everything: a dream job as a partner in a large Philadelphia law firm, a beautiful fiancée, and more money than he could ever hope to spend. Then he finds his future wife in bed with another man, and he’s forced to rethink his life and his choices. On a moment’s notice, he runs away to Paris, hoping to make peace with his life.
But Jason’s leave of absence becomes a true journey of the heart when he meets Jules, a struggling jazz violinist with his own cross to bear. In the City of Love, it doesn’t take them long to fall into bed, but as they’re both about to learn, they can’t run from the past. Sooner or later, they’ll have to face the music.
Romance is my thing. I am a sappy, romantic fool and I adore stories where characters are blindsided by love. Please understand that I do not get caught up in the mechanics or intricacies of the process. I have no issues with love at first sight, in fact I find stories where the heroes fall hard and quick to be very entertaining.
What could be a more romantic setting for a love story than Paris? In Blue Notes there are all of the classic elements that make passion come alive in an enchanting backdrop. A great setting, a hero that is filled with angst and heartache needing to be soothed, and a gifted young man who has suffered too many of life’s injustices badly needing a hero. On top of all that we also get music. I think it’s the musical element of this book that is the glue binding it together and making the story unique.
If you have not had a chance to read any of the “Blue Notes” series by the very talented Shira Anthony I highly suggest you start here now. It is a beautiful and heartwarming escape to Paris with a sweet love story and very sexy men.
I would like to thank Dreamspinner Press for providing me with the eRC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
