However, there is a point where too many musical references can disrupt the flow and the plot progression. There were times in this book where I felt that the musical aspect of the book overwhelmed the romantic aspect. I saw the spark between Blue and Jodi early on and I was really looking forward to pursuing that storyline. With all the lyrics from various songs, it seemed to cut the flow of words and thus, slowed the pace a bit.
Despite that, I loved the chemistry between Blue and Jodi and I wished that there was more to explore with them. Blue was like a stick of dynamite, one who doesn’t seem like much at first, but then he just explodes onto the page and grabs your attention. And Jodi, being the naive young woman that she is, becomes transfixed by this man who offers to walk her to her tent.
The love scenes were well-written and definitely steamy. I kind of wish this was longer so that there was more to read about them! The scenes were intense, but short and I would have loved it if Ms. Amiri explored this more.
Overall, this book was quick and easy read, filled with the message of peace, love and yup, you guessed it, music!
