Sound Bites: A Rock & Roll Love Story by Rachel K. Burke

Blurb via Goodreads-
"Renee Evans has a knack for trouble. After walking in on her best friend and boyfriend in bed together, twenty-five year-old Renee flees sunny Los Angeles and her dream job as a music journalist and returns to her hometown of Boston – only to meet Dylan Cavallari, the mysterious, aspiring musician who lives in her apartment building. Dylan’s piercing gaze and womanizing demeanor make him exactly the type of guy that Renee should steer clear of – which is most likely the reason she falls for him. But when Renee’s troublesome ex comes back and threatens to drive her and Dylan apart, Renee is forced to face her past and save her relationship with Dylan before it's too late.

Sound Bites dramatizes what happens when Renee finds herself caught between a painful past and an uncertain future. Happiness turns out to be within her grasp, but it all depends on whether she can trust herself enough to make the right decisions. Sound Bites is a novel about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, and the power of music to help you find your way"

I loved Sound Bites! This was a cute fun contemporary romance. The writing was great, the characters were interesting and I was able to connect with Renee throughout the entire book.  I read  Sound Bites in one sitting because I could not put it down and the end left me sighing and saying "Awwwwh!"   Lately, all I have been reading are YA books (which I love) and I have to say that Sound Bites had a YA "feel" to it but had some adult situations. Great read and I hope to read more from Rachel K. Burke!

5 out of 5 stars  Highly recommend to Mature YA and older
