Book Description Courtesy of Amazon:
After being bounced from foster family to foster family, Keeley, a talented pianist, is ready to start over as a junior at Tulane. But when she plays a small concert that attracts the attention of Jude, a brooding playboy and heir to an enormous fortune in the wake of his parents’ tragic death, suddenly Keeley’s life is thrown off balance once again.
Jude is the first person to confront her about the pain behind her music, and she struggles with whether or not to let him into her life, or to keep protecting herself from the hurt that relationships have caused her in the past. But Keeley’s about to learn that the melancholy young billionaire who appears to have everything can open her eyes to exactly what she needs…
This was a lovely, thought-provoking, artistic novel, with some hot, sexy billionaire thrown in for good measure! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Keeley’s personal journey from lost foster kid to budding pianist. It was heartrending at times, and flustering at times, and just a downright good story, even without the added “education”. I only wish their had been a soundtrack to go with it, because the one in my head, no doubt, did it no justice. The imagery is beautiful, and so detailed you can see the performances as you’re reading them. They become so real it’s hard not to hear the music and feel what she’s feeling.
Jude is exactly like what you’d hope a secretive billionaire would be like, but deep down, you know he is just a dream of romance readers everywhere. That doesn’t hurt the story though. Hot, sexy, experienced, and he wants to “teach” Keeley everything she needs to know about life. And what a teacher he is!
Definitely worth a read, and one you will not regret! Received for an honest review.
