really enjoyed this book! Jason, a successful lawyer in Philadelphia,
walks in on his fiancee in bed with another man and immediately calls
off the engagement. Needing to clear his head, he decides to take
sabbatical in Paris for a couple of months. While at a jazz club, he
meets an enigmatic and hugely talented violinist, Jules. Even though it
was his music that first captured Jason's attention, he is soon
enchanted by the young musician.
Blue Notes is a great
romance novel that mixes just the right about of sweet romance,
angst/drama and sex. Both Jason and Jules are dealing with their own
demons and issues, which are resolved in a very realistic manner. I
couldn't help but root for this couple because they were so great
The way the music in this story is described is
gorgeous, making me not only hear the beautiful pieces in my head, but
also feel the intense emotion behind them. In my opinion, it's a
character all on its own.
About 3/4 of the way through the book,
the pacing slowed a bit, but it soon picked right back up. All of the
characters were well-developed, except I wish I could have learned more
about Jules' younger brother, Guy. His story intrigued me, but I wasn't
given the opportunity to learn much about him.
All in all this was a wonderful love story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
