Smoke and Lyrics
by Holly Hall
Genre: NA, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2017
Country star Jenson King is accustomed to fighting battles and losing–in his career, in his love life, and with alcohol. Following his divorce, thousands, if not millions, of fans are counting on his comeback. But how does one find the spark of passion when it’s long since burned out?
Lindsey Farrar wants nothing more than to prove herself as a music photographer. Fiery and independent, she’d work countless side jobs to fuel her dream rather than ride the coattails of someone else’s name to success. After a chance encounter, Lindsey shakes up everything Jenson believes about life and that other four-letter word.
After all he’s been through, Jenson isn’t willing to let anything meaningful slip out of his grasp. But Lindsey’s determined to shine all on her own, and Jenson casts an enormous shadow.
Smoke and Lyrics was me very first read by Holly Hall. Taking chances on new authors is such a fun experience, and I can confidently say you’ll find me reading more of her work.
While reading, I found myself repeatedly asking, “Why in the world have I not been reading more music/rockstar based stories?!” Like, seriously. Music is a huge part of my life—you’ll rarely find me not listening to music, so why has it not been part of my reading?!
This story was beautifully written, and had me constantly wanting more of Jenson and Lindsay. They were stubborn, passionate characters who I just wanted to see happy. And Jenson? Oh. My. Gosh. He was a broken, rough around the edges guy, and I fell so hard for him. Usually, it takes me awhile to connect with the broody guys (even though they’re my favorites); however, I fell for him right from the beginning.
I enjoyed this book so much! It was a beautiful, captivating story with characters who were far from perfect. If you love stories that revolve around rockstars, and with depth–give Smoke and Lyrics a try!
