Final Serenade
By N.N. Britt

Please feel free to comment or share.

I do enjoy a good rock star romance, and with all of the wonderful reviews singing this book’s praises, I felt the need to jump on the bandwagon and experience this novel for myself.

I love a book written from the female protagonist’s perspective.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed many books that have offered up a dual perspective, but I love only getting the one side.  I love feeling everything that the female lead is feeling.  I want the butterflies, the build-up, the anticipation, the apprehension, and the thrill of the unknown.  For me, it makes the experience more personal.  N.N. Britt delivered Cassy’s perspective just the way I like it.

Cassy Evans isn’t just some fangirl.  She is a music journalist who works in the business and knows how to interview and interact with the various musicians.  She doesn’t mix work with pleasure, but when she gets the opportunity to meet her teenage crush after his seven-year hiatus, well, dreams really do come true.  Not only does she get to meet the elusive Frankie Blade, but she also manages to catch his eye.

“This, the insanity of us, was startling and breathtaking and I dreaded the day it would end."

Rock star romances are never easy and, frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I want the characters to have to work for every inch they get.  That feeds my angst-loving heart.  Cassy and Frank have the attraction, they have plenty of chemistry, and they have that relationship that needs to be kept out of the public eye.  They are electric together, but I fear that they are also combustible.  Whenever something burns so bright, it always has the chance of burning out.  Every time I turned the page, my heart was getting ready to plummet.  I wanted their relationship to work out, but could it?  I loved that the author put me through the wringer.  I’m looking forward to seeing how Cassy and Frank’s story turns out.
