Blame it on jet lag. Jason Greene thought he had everything: a dream job as a partner in a large Philadelphia law firm, a beautiful fiancee, and more money than he could ever hope to spend. Then he finds his future wife in bed with another man, and he's forced to rethink his life and his choices. On a moment's notice, he runs away to Paris, hoping to make peace with his life.

But Jason's leave of absence becomes a true journey of the heart when he meets Jules, a struggling jazz violinist with his own cross to bear. In the City of Love, it doesn't take them long to fall into bed, but as they're both about to learn, they can't run from the past. Sooner or later, they'll have to face the music.



This series will blow you away, book one is wonderful and just to let you know, so is every book that follows! These books can be read as stand alone's, or in any order, so read them how you like, as long as you read them! Jason and Jules are both lovely, hurting men who find each other while Jason was running from his problems. Life can get in the way sometimes, but the beautiful thing about this story is that sometimes when we run from the life we left behind, we are actually running to the life we were meant to live in the first place! Don't miss Blue Notes, it sets the tone for a series that is sure to please!   *5 Stars*

NOW FOR BOOK 2: THE MELODY THIEF: 


             The Melody Thief  (Blue Notes #2) by Shira Anthony
                                                                reviewed by: Becky


Cary Redding is a walking contradiction. On the surface he’s a renowned cellist, sought after by conductors the world over. Underneath, he’s a troubled man flirting with addictions to alcohol and anonymous sex. The reason for the discord? Cary knows he’s a liar, a cheat. He's the melody thief.

Cary manages his double life just fine until he gets mugged on a deserted Milan street. Things look grim until handsome lawyer Antonio Bianchi steps in and saves his life. When Antonio offers something foreign to Cary—romance—Cary doesn’t know what to do. But then things get even more complicated. For one thing, Antonio has a six-year-old son. For another, Cary has to confess about his alter ego and hope Antonio forgives him. 

Just when Cary thinks he's figured it all out, past and present collide and he is forced to choose between the family he wanted as a boy and the one he has come to love as a man.



Cary, Cary,Cary (shakes head),at the start of this book, he needs to be taken over a knee (like that would be a hardship), but when Antonio helps him out of a jam, we begin to see the Cary behind the mask, and it is lovely! The message I got from this lovely book is that sometimes changing your beliefs for another is the smartest thing you could ever do! You will fall in love with Antonio and his son the delightful Massi, just like Cary does! This is the perfect followup to an epic book one! Thanks Shira, for backing up your wonderful book one with a worthy sequel!  *5 Stars* 

                                                     5 cellos worthy for sure!

NOW ONTO BOOK THREE:


                                            Aria (Blue Notes #3) Shira Anthony
                                                              reviewed by: Becky


Five years after a prestigious scholarship jump started his opera career, Aiden Lind has it all: fame, choice roles, and Lord Cameron Sherrington to share his life with. Maintaining his fa├žade takes effort, but under his poised, sophisticated mask, Aiden is still the insecure kid from rural Mississippi. Then he walks in on Cam with another man, and the illusion of perfection shatters.

Philadelphia attorney Sam Ryan never moved on after his partner died, though he tried. Instead of dating, he keeps himself busy with work—but when he unexpectedly runs into ex-lover Aiden while on a rare vacation in Paris, he’s inspired to give their love a second chance. First, though, he’ll have to get Aiden to forgive him. Because when Sam was still grieving five years ago, he broke Aiden’s heart.

When rekindled lust blossoms into a true romance, it seems like the start of something wonderful. But Aiden’s career has him on the road much of the time, and the physical distance between him and Sam starts translating into an emotional disconnect. If Aiden and Sam can’t learn to communicate, their separation may prove more than their love can bear.


Oh my goodness! Let me just start this review with: I want a Sam!!! Please, just one! Ok now that that is out, let me say this book is just awesome! Aiden, is shattered by betrayal, and Sam is shattered by loss, can the two overcome pains of the past and build a future? Well you will never have more fun discovering an answer i can assure you! This is my favorite of the series, though they are all astounding! Thanks Shira, for holding our interest with this lovely series! *5 Stars*

NOW FOR BOOK 4! PRELUDE:


                                       Prelude (Blue Notes #4) by Shira Anthony      
                                                             reviewed by: Becky     



World-renowned conductor David Somers never wanted the investment firm he inherited from his domineering grandfather. He only wanted to be a composer. But no matter how he struggles, David can’t translate the music in his head into notes on paper. 

When a guest violinist at the Chicago Symphony falls ill, David meets Alex Bishop, a last-minute substitute. Alex’s fame and outrageous tattoos fail to move David. Then Alex puts bow to string, and David hears the brilliance of Alex’s soul.

David has sworn off relationships, believing he will eventually drive away those he loves, or that he'll lose them as he lost his wife and parents. But Alex is outgoing, relaxed, and congenial—everything David is not—and soon makes dents in the armor around David's heart. David begins to dream of Alex, wonderful dreams full of music. Becoming a composer suddenly feels attainable. 

David’s fragile ego, worn away by years of his grandfather’s disdain, makes losing control difficult. When David’s structured world comes crashing down, his fledgling relationship with Alex is the first casualty. Still, David hears Alex’s music, haunting and beautiful. David wants to love Alex, but first he must find the strength to acknowledge himself.


    
I love when two men who are worlds apart find that they are the only two who can complete each others worlds! David and Alex were meant for each other, now to make David realize he knew that all along! You will love this book 4, and you'll fall in love with both of these incredible men! Thanks Shira, for a series that in no way gets predictable! *5 Stars*
