Love At The Bluebird by Aurora Rose Reynolds and Jessica Marin Review


* * * * * * * * * *


With a hit song sitting at number one on the country music charts, Gavin McNeer thought he finally had everything he ever wanted.

All it takes is one look from the mesmerizing woman sitting in the front row at one of his shows and a brief encounter to make him realize just what he’s been missing. Even though he’s been burnt in the past, Gavin puts his inhibitions aside and his heart on the line to earn the trust of the woman who could be his everything.

Working in an industry where relationships start and end in the blink of an eye, Alyson Dawson has made it her mission not to get mixed up with musicians, no matter how good-looking they are. Keeping her focus on her blossoming career and clients, Aly doesn’t even have time to date much less fall in love. That is until she meets Gavin, a man who changes everything with one smoldering look.

Just when these two begin to settle into their new relationship, Aly is asked to do something that may require her to choose between the career she’s building and the man she’s falling in love with. To make things worse, Gavin’s ex decides to add a touch of drama to an already delicate situation.

Will their love survive, or become just another sad love song?

I thoroughly enjoyed Love At The Bluebird, a collaboration between Aurora Rose Reynolds and Jessica Marin. I’m a huge, long-time Aurora Rose Reynolds fan, but this was my first time reading Jessica Marin. These two authors were very well paired. Their writing styles blended seamlessly, and they transitioned smoothly between each other, which is exactly what I hope for in a co-written novel.

I was sold on this story the minute I read the blurb, and I was not disappointed. Everything I love about Reynolds’ writing – the devoted, determined alpha hero, a sassy heroine and, of course, the BOOM – was there with just enough light angst to keep me hooked and turning the pages. A country music star romance set in Nashville, there was plenty of southern charm to be found on these pages. An alpha hero from Texas, Gavin McNeer was extremely swoon-worthy, sexy and seriously into Aly from the moment he laid eyes on her. Alyson Dawson, an A&R assistant for a record label, was focused on her career, and vowed to herself that she wouldn’t get mixed up with a musician.

The chemistry between Aly and Gavin was combustible – everyone around them the night they met felt it, and the authors did a fantastic job making that moment – ARR’s BOOM! – leap off the page. These two were just so drawn to each other, and it was more than just sexual attraction, though there was plenty of that. It was clear that in each other they seemed to recognize a kindred spirit and that once-in-a-lifetime, soul-deep connection. These two fell for each other so hard and fast, and I was right there with them, loving every minute of it.

Love At The Bluebird was a light-hearted, feel good story with all of the swoony, sexy romance I love from Aurora Rose Reynolds with just enough angsty drama to keep me interested but not overwhelmed. I absolutely loved watching this couple fall in love, and I was totally swept up in their romance. I was charmed from the first page, and I devoured this book in a day—I simply did not want to put it down! Love At The Bluebird by Aurora Rose Reynolds and Jessica Marin gets 4.5 smooches from me!
