Love never comes easy, especially to those who aren’t prepared for it…
Twenty-four-year-old musician Charlie Stone has always played the classics. It’s just another day of playing the same old songs until he notices her—Anna Garrett, a beauty with cold-bitten, rosy cheeks and a coffee cup clutched in her hands.

Five songs later, and she’s still standing there. He vows to s

Alice (Married To Books)
I remember purchasing this book on Kindle over a year ago when it was free and came up quite randomly on recommended books based on your purchases list. After seeing from the blurb that it was a romance with music involved, I immediately jumped at the chance. However from the difference between reading dates, it is clear to see that honestly, I struggled to finish it.

Charlie is a busker on the streets of London and one day by chance notices a woman called Anna holding a cup of takeaway coffee an

When the author asked me if I would like to review this book, I was super happy. New adult is right up my alley, and the premise sounded good, and it was in London? Sign me up! So as you can imagine, I really really wanted to love this book… I didn’t though.

The writing was the main reason I couldn’t quite enjoy this book. The book is told on the 3rd person, present tense, and so far so good, my problem was that it was a very complentative and introspective writing, with ver

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I haven't read a contemporary book like this in a while, so I'm really pleased that I enjoyed this one.

I loved how Anna and Charlie met. It was pure romcom swoony first sightings. The characters in this book did have to face some difficulties, but it wasn't over the top, and it added well to the story.

Charlie was adorable. He was seriously so sweet and kind hearted. I loved him! Anna was spirited and also quite lovable. They were from

Lines We Forget by J.E Warren is a very enjoyable read. Its a sweet love story which is very well written and the innocence will tug at your heartstrings. Its not complicated, yet its engaging. Its written in a time-lapse fashion, that will reveal the strength and weaknesses of their relationships over the time. I really like the simplicity of the story and it felt realistic and not some obnoxious fantasy. A very cute, romantic and fascinating tal

This debut novel is a sweet and realistic look at young love. It has everything you expect see in real life situations: the anticipation of the first kiss, the spark of passion that draws to people together, the comradery and friendship of a new relationship. There are many ups and downs in this book that are viewed through a lenses of authenticity, giving the reader a story that sounds like one you would hear from a friend while sharing tales of love and loss. Lines We Forget features two very ...more

This is an unusual love story set in London. Charlie is a musician who despite his privileged background craves a simpler life, filled with music, which he funds working in a music shop and busking outside a London Underground station. Country girl Anna works in London, living the dream; except she doesn’t like her job or her bitchy colleagues and is

This a a sweet tale about young love which is often beautiful, confusing and terrifying all at the same time. Lines We Forget is written in first person, present tense and is well written. I enjoyed the sometimes humorous banter between the main characters and laughed out loud at some points. The characters were believable.

Overall, I liked the story but I have to deduct one star in the rating because there were a couple of places in the book that dragged on a little too long without action or di
This book was a DNF (did not finish) - I couldn't get into it. The plot was slow, the characters were not at all relatable or compelling. I tried to get into this book several times, but just couldn't. I very rarely leave a book unfinished but this one was just a no go for me. ...more

Thanks so much to the author for providing me with an eARC for review. All opinions are my own.

Ok, where do I start? I really enjoyed this book. I found it had just the right amount of fluff, without being mind-numbing.

Let's talk about the two main characters, Charlie and Anna. Charlie is your quintessential, blond, British, guitar playing, singing male lead. He is witty and smart, and I knew from the very beginning that I was going to like him. Anna, on the other hand, is a little snarky, and
