My Review: 5 Stars

I'm impressed with this series so far and how each book has that common thread and a similar vibe, yet is so unique. In this one, we are treated to a story set in New York City. How fun is that?

Nate is a freshman at NYU and is a very talented musician. Nate's life revolves around and relates to music. In a move to escape his obnoxious brothers (they're triplets), and at the encouragement of his high school girlfriend, he moves into a new apartment and is a little surprised by who his new roomie is. Jordan is the perfect roommate. She's funny, smart, and really brings out the creativity in Nate, as he's trying to write the perfect song. She is a film student and Jordan's life revolves and relates to movies. It's amazing to me to see just how many songs and movies can actually relate to one story. I love it!

Becoming an adult and college life isn't easy, as is shown in this story and it's through the matchmaker, Pearl, that Nate really finds the courage to make the necessary changes in his life to fulfill his full potential. Pearl is great and I love learning more about her through each book. The characters, both good and bad, are fantastic and are each crucial to the story and its development. I came to love them all--all except for one--although some are definitely easier to love from the get-go. The setting, music scenes, character development, and pacing are perfect for this plot and I devoured it--it was really over before I was ready for it to be and that ending? Perfection!

Content: mild language; some innuendo, some party scenes with underage drinking, kissing, implied unmarried intimate relations with no details. Clean, especially for the new adult genre!



“So this is what a Pearl-approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”
I was a little taken aback by the compliment, if that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”
Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”
Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.
