Blurb : Fin Hunter has spent his life striving for his father’s elusive love and approval by following a life path set out for him and not of his own choosing. However, when he is yet again blamed for something out of his control, he snaps. Deciding to stand on his own two feet, he chooses to follow his true passion – music. But will he find real happiness?Star Mendoza is living her dream in Edinburgh, a place she discovered in British novels while growing up in a small USA town. Now working in a city coffee shop, the tattooed, pink-haired young woman fantasises about the handsome businessman she serves on a daily basis. He’s totally out of her league but a girl can dream. Suddenly he stops calling in only to show up again in the most unlikely of places. Could her fantasy now become a reality? Or is the attraction of opposites doomed to fail?

 

Review : You will understand the importance of the fact that I feel Jekyll and Hyde about this novel when you read it.

 

It started out extremely well and then it had a long stretch where I was wondering if I would finish it.

 

I found myself skimming some pages around the middle but against my expectations, I found back to the story and it DID finally make it to a 4 Star level.

 

Surprising

 

If you can work with a slower pace during a good part of a novel and you like the plot from its blurb I feel pretty confident that you will like the book, as character development and plot are solid.
