Facing the Music by Andrea Laurence

Well this was sweet, cute, and all kinds of southern funny. I was reminded of the movie Sweet Home Alabama while reading this. The big star comes home and there is her high school love that broke her heart. They clash and banter their way around each other, yet neither wants to admit there is still chemistry.

I loved the older characters in Facing the Music. Old southern broads with quick wit and a say-anything attitude are always a win-win in my book!

It’s quirky and fun. A great book for the beach and the pick up-put down habits summer brings with it. My only negative was the few repetitive conversations. Once I know what has happened, retelling it completely to other characters feels unnecessary and I just end up skim reading. Don’t let that deter you in any way, though. It’s a perfect read for summer.

In this sizzling and hilarious contemporary e-book romance, pop sensation Ivy Hudson returns to her small town to face her ex. Only trouble is, she made her Taylor-Swift-like career with the hit song “Size Matters”—and the football hero has had to live it down ever since.

Five years ago, high school sweethearts Ivy and Blake’s relationship imploded and both their lives were changed forever. Ivy became a rock star and Blake lost not only his dreams of a successful NFL career, but his reputation. Ivy’s angry song about their breakup, called “Size Matters,” hit the top of the charts and Blake became a national laughingstock. He’s salvaged his career and returned to Rosewood to be the high school football coach, regaining his status as town hero and leading the boys to the state championships.

When a tornado whips through town and destroys the high school gymnasium and stadium, a committee is formed to help rebuild and plan some charity fundraisers. Blake’s grandmother requests that Ivy return to Rosewood for the events. Forced back together for the good of their hometown and their careers, Ivy and Blake have no choice but to put aside their differences, stop running from their pasts, and finally face the music.

For fans of Kristen Proby and Colette Auclair, Facing the Music hits a perfect balance between small-town romance and big-time success. Follow Ivy and Blake as they fall back in love and figure out what does matter in the end

Coming September 1st
