Sound Effects (Ripple Effects, #2) written by L.J. Greene (284 pgs) – finished reading 10/15/16 – 5 stars - Contemporary Romance (Rock star)

Another awesome book by L.J. Greene! Jamie and Mel together are the perfect couple! Amazing chemistry! And, they’re both soulful characters. They’re both attracted to each other when they first meet as they begin their relationship in 2004 when the whole music scene is changing. Digital music is introduced as iTunes makes its debut. Social media is catching on. And, MySpace takes on the growing crowd of people being friends via the computer. This was not your typical bad boy drinking and drug use themed rockstar romance. This was more the beginning of a poor rockstar’s quest to get his band off the ground and the ups and downs of the somewhat unstable music industry as times were changing. It was interesting and so believable. You can tell that Ms. Greene did the research to show the book’s support. Both Mel and Jamie were brilliant characters, but it’s Jamie’s Irish words of tenderness and beauty that just made me swoon. While Jamie was a breathtaking male, Mel was such a confident and caring young woman. She understood Jamie and was so supportive of him through good times and bad. Such a powerful couple together. And, the heat beween the two is very passionate. I loved their story, and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author! The characters, the storyline, and the writing was just a gem of a read!!!
