From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes the music inspired conclusion to the MY LIFE AS AN ALBUM SERIES about hope and new beginnings.
I came to Tennessee to help a friend and now, I’m stuck...by the Southern charm...by the sweet tea...by a tall, red-headed, red-headed "Strawberry Shortcake." And when my world crumbles apart,Wynn is there to help me pick up the pieces.To show me the way.
My life was a huge disappointment...my marriage...my job...everything slipped away. Coming home seemed like the final failure. But then I meet him, Lonnie Brennan, the sexy bass player, who adds laughter to my life. And now, I realize that I can change my tune, sing a new song.
One memorably beautiful novel that will stay with you long after you've read that last word!!! Lonnie is one guy that every girl deserves to meet. Wynn is a sweet and sassy girl. These two find themselves drawn to each other like a bee to honey. But it isn't until two life changing events happen that they finally come together. Watching these two fall in love was a heartwarming thing. When life trys to throw more your way than you believe you're capable of, when it breaks your spirit, you need someone to hold your hand. If you love a story that deals with real life drama, that will make you cry and remind you of the sweetest things in life, you've gotta read this!! I've shed buckets of tears over this whole series 💖💖💖 I never thought that I'd love this genre as much as I do and honestly I do think it's simply because of this author!! Ms. Evans is just such an expert at the human heart and she never shys away from these difficult topics. Her novels are eye opening and life changing!! The epilogue was all the things... all the words that I never knew I needed to read!! I love that this series began and ended with Cam and Jake. We see our faves and how the future has shaped them. One excellent and surprising series conclusion!!
I have struggled to review this book, because what can you say about perfection? This book is everything. Long story short, stop reading this review and start reading the book. You will love it. It is one of the best books I’ve ever read. That’s right...ever.
I have long been a fan of this series. I sobbed my way through Jake and Cam’s story and knew this was a series that would stick with me. I cried and laughed my way through the rest of the series and fell harder for all of the characters each and every time. Then, then I read MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE, and it was the absolute perfect send off for these characters. The series epilogue? I’m tearing up just thinking of it. Ms. Evans has completely outdone herself with this book.
Lonnie and Wynn are both such complex characters. They have so much depth and feel so real. My heart broke for them, but they also made my heart so happy. They have so much to overcome both personally and as a couple, but they have this perfect support system in each other before they really even realize it. I’m not sure there has ever been two characters more perfectly suited for one another. I absolutely loved watching them slay their dragons together.
There are a few surprises along the way in this book, but I never felt like drama was added simply for the sake of drama. This book was so emotional, but never over the top. Reading the series in order definitely made this book even more perfect. Seeing the progression of all the characters in this story brought back so many emotions from the whole series. I found myself tearing up over and over again both from the hardships these characters have faced and the joy they have found.
While I can say with confidence I am ready to read whatever Ms. Evans releases next, I will also be the girl on the sideline begging for just a little bit more. I’m not ready to let these characters go. They have become those characters I want to continue to revisit forever.
If you haven’t read the rest of the series, I highly recommend you start at the beginning and read through in order, because there isn’t a single story you want to miss. However, this can be read and enjoyed as a standalone, but there are major spoilers for book one included.
