They both have demons to overcome and as they try to open up to each other will they make it or break it.
This is a really deep romance story about an ex rock star and a widow.
I must admit that it took me a while to get into this one but by 15% in I started to get into it, there was a few bits that I thought that it struggled to hold my attention but by 50% I was so hooked I could not put it down. It is quite emotional and had me in tears a few times.
I thought Abbey was really adorable and I did not have any complaints about the characters. I really felt like I could feel the pain that Katrina was in and I Adrian really grew on my so much that he had my heart pitter pattering by the end.
I really liked how the whole story revolved around music and I could tell that the author loves music as much as I do.
My only complaint is that Kev’ Katrina’s brother wasn’t in it for as much as I would like. His character for me really stood out from all the other characters just in the small amount of the book he was in. I really loved him and I would really like to read more about him! Jessica please give him his own book.
Needless to say once I got into the book I loved it, a really great well written novel.
I received a copy of Louder than Love from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
