This was a really cute and fast read. I finished it in one sitting and it's one of those "feel good" stories that leaves you feeling like you've just had a big hug when you finished and a smile on your face.
This is a best-friends to lovers trope. It starts out when the heroine Saroj Shah first sees Adam Harper standing in a common dorm bathroom on her first day of college. From there a friendship is sparked between Saroj and Adam. The problem is Saroj is in love with Adam, but all he sees her as is his best friend and a little sister figure. This plot is very realistic as Adam has no clue of Saroj's feelings or his own until she begins flirting and shares a kiss with his bandmate.
The characters are well-rounded with great characteristics that make them believable and the reader able to connect with. The writing is well polished and interesting. The plot is a perfect fit for the short book. Overall this is a good read and I really enjoyed the diversity. I would give this five stars and recommend to anyone looking for a happy read.
Book Synopsis: Reporter Saroj Shah has been in love with bass player and bartender Adam Harper since her first day of college—seven years ago. Forever thinking of her as part-friend and part-little sister, he's just been too blind, and too clueless, to see it. Until one pivotal moment pulls her into the spotlight.
The moment Saroj steps on stage, Adam sees his friend in a new light. He can't take his mind off of her and realizes they could make beautiful music together. But seven years is a long time and Saroj is ready to move on. Adam will have to hit the right note if he wants to prove to Saroj he was worth the wait.
