Nurse Trina Woods never really expected to make the reality-show cut for Rich Man, Lucky Lady. She’s used to losing in love, and past believing in fairy tales. So she’s sure the handsome plain-talking man she encounters on her lunch break is just a shy eccentric. . .Until he turns out to be reclusive award-winning musician “Art E.” Soon his unique sensitivity and gentle ways are inspiring her to stand up for herself, take risks, and try one last time for her happy ending.Tony Santangelo’s special way of seeing the world helps him make connections others don’t–and turn them into mega-hit songs. But he never realized how lonely he was until he got a glimpse of Trina’s honesty and caring nature–and went way out of his comfort zone to find her. Suddenly they’re the media’s hottest new Cinderella story. And coping with his overprotective brother and overwhelming celebrity means he and Trina must face trouble head on, insist on their dreams, and write their own one-of-a-kind forever-after song. . .
âNo Ordinary Loveâ is the perfect title for by J.J. Murrayâs newest book.
First I would like to say that there were a few things that I did not feel so comfortable around in the writing style of this novel. But that was just my very personal preference in writing style and once I choose to ignore that in favor of the plot I found a wonderful love story.
I read many books on subjects like handicaps and I truly believe the author managed to create a really deep and wonderful character when he described Tony. His raw honesty may be brutal at times and can be a blessing as well as a curse, but in the end to know that he will be forever honest no matter the outcome is a precious gift.
If I had to choose his woman I have to admit it would not have been Trina but another woman from this story (I cannot say to much as I want to avoid spoilers). I would have switched characters with another woman described in the book. Again that is just my personal preference and does not change anything about how wonderful this story is.
This book is so full of music that at a certain point I felt/wished I should/could be able to see the music like Tony does. Even though there was no emotional part for me within the plot there was a moment when through influences of a song in the radio I felt tears pop up in my eyes â¦
I was reading this line :
>>The first times Tony showed my love, I didnât know it was love, Trina thought. Now I know. I will never forget the lyrics to my song and I will never throw out the shoes he gave me <<
And in that second the radio was playing : Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwoâole
Well and the next thing I knew was that I was wiping away a stray tear.
I will miss Tony â¦ and I believe the world could be a better place if there were more people around like him.
