She started from perfect.
A star who shone brighter than the rest.
But then fate took it all away.
Now she's broken. A beautiful song with a fractured beat.
But I'm still on the rise. Chasing a dream that she's already left behind.
If I'm lucky, I can find my redemption in the spotlight.
Destiny brought us together. Put her in my path.
It started with a road trip.
But somewhere along the line, it became a journey from here to there. Maybe she can help me.
Maybe we can help each other.
Maybe music is enough.
Maybe.
Every story deserves a soundtrack.
And ours is epic.
Down To You is a standalone, rockstar romance within the Sixth Street Bands Series. 18+ for adult situations.

I have been stalking people’s 5 star/favourites shelves to find new authors recently and I came across this, it was recommended me on GR as well and since I was still in the mood for contemporary plus enemies to lovers is like catnip to me. I want it as soon as I sniff it.

Victoria Grayson once lived a very charmed life which changed after the death of her husband and one of her best friends.  The woman she is now is vastly different, just sort of being existing, mostly for her friends, work and family. Logan Cage on the other hand had an awful childhood, his mother’s death and his father being an asshole and awful father and human. The only thing he really cares about is his sister and his music.

Logan and Tori, man I really adored them together. Their lives regardless of the riches they have is very bleak, lonely and filled with grief.

I really loved Tori and Logon together, they interactions at first are filled with barely concealed animosity that grows in friendship and love. They go on a journey together and take you along the ride of them finding their HEA. Which is filled ups and downs, angst and heartbreak. I adored them together and individually. They had great chemistry, you could see them falling deeper and deeper for each other. They both become open not just with each other but their friends as well. They help each other become more open and become better and stronger people.

I liked that Rhenn wasn’t made to be a bad guy and Tori didn’t compare her love to him with Logan. She loved Logan, he made her feel alive again and even when it breaks her heart…she continues to love him. Logan is of course insecure about Tori’s feelings for him but ultimately he comes to realise she does love him for him. She’s it for him.

Logan probably wouldn’t appreciate it but he was just so cute at times with Tori, getting her cookies, teasing her, helping with her stretches and working with her with song writing. And Tori, really needed that, she needed someone to see her, not Belle the rockstar, part of the famous couple and not Tori, the manager of Twin Souls but Victoria. Who longed for a child, who was sweet, loved her family and was just so lost in her personal life but was strong in her career and had so much love to give.

I haven’t read the other books in the series, I was completely fine with the story (probably would have loved the book even more had I read them) so this can be read as a standalone. I’m looking forward to reading Miles story next which is out now!

Slight quibble aside of me wanting more Logan and Tori together since they spend quite a bit at the end separately and wanting more conversations between them. It was a very good read. On a very surface level it reminded me Steal by Rachel Van Dyken and Faking it by K. Brombery. One because of the whole celebrity aspect, two because of the ‘forced’ closeness/tour and three because of the grief and pain that the couple had. Which are books I also really enjoyed so!

From #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely comes a new standalone romance as you’ve never seen her before. Filled with raw emotion, heartbreak, hope, and humor, UNBREAK MY HEART explores how to heal, how to live, and how to love.

I didn't break her heart, and she didn't break mine -- we broke each other's.

I never stopped loving her, but time and distance played its cruel role in ripping us apart three years ago when she moved halfway around the world. Now after all those endless miles away, she's returned . . . but I'm not the guy I was before.

Beautiful, kind, and loving, she's the same -- my hope. The only one who can make a day better, who can make me feel again with one kiss, one touch, one night.

There's so much I have to put back in place now that I’m alone and on my own. Things I never wanted at the age of twenty-five. When I receive an unexpected letter that might hold the clues to everything I desperately need to understand about my family, I'm sure I have to follow it. But that means leaving her once more.

She says she'll come with me, and having her by my side will unbreak my heart . . . or destroy it.

That's the chance I have to take.

A romance that will break your heart and stitch it back together again…

Every now and then a romance comes along that defies expectations. Get lost and found in UNBREAK MY HEART–the brand-new second chance romance from #1 NYT bestseller Lauren Blakely!

“What else did you do while you were here?”

“You want me to fill in the last three years?” she asks, with a laugh.

“Kind of.”

“Besides missing you?”

I scoff. “You didn’t miss me that much.”

She stares sharply at me. “Did you miss me?”

“You know I did.”

“And I missed you. I thought about you a lot,” she says, her words soft and tender, thawing a cold piece of me.

“So we were sad sacks, missing each other,” I tease.

“Maybe we were. I mean, look. It was hard, but I had to focus on school and so did you. We agreed to that, and I think we both did that. But I also didn’t ever stop thinking about you.”

Her admission kick-starts another part of my engine. I reach for a strand of her hair because it’s almost impossible to not touch her at a time like this.
