*Also posted at Oops! I Read A Book Again*

A year ago, I spazzed to mighty heavens about Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) and I took it as my personal mandate to rave about it all the time and make everyone read it. Which I kind of succeeded, methinks. Or at least I got the book into people's radars. Like our protagonist Riley, I ended up liking Ted Callahan so hard it wasn't healthy anymore.

So imagine my glee when it was announced that there will be a novella sequel! I wanted more Ted Calla

This was perfect. Funny. Sweet. Amy is seriously the best at writing wonderful kissing books. My only problem with it is that now it's over, and I'm left, once again, missing all of the characters. <3 ...more
So, I shouted myself this short story, and it's my first read of 2017.

I love Riley's voice so much. Riley I love your voice!! It's full of feeling and humour. So glad to see The Gold-Diggers doing well, and playing at festivals.

And Ted Callahan! Ted! We love you! He's such a catch.

Great story, but it is short. So be warned.

I loved getting this small glimpse of Riley's humor as her band prepares to play an out-of-state festival. I wish there was more to the story of Riley and the band, and Ted Callahan, of course. A fun, short read.

I enjoyed Love and Music (and Missing Ted Callahan). It was an interlude in the characters’ lives while they’re working on the dreams.

Depois de um livro tão divertido quanto Kissing Ted Callahan, é claro que eu dei um jeito de conseguir a continuação, por mais que ela seja uma novela e não outro livro.

Rever a personagem Riley é realmente uma delícia, que personagem divertida! Amy Spalding foi muito feliz na sua criação. E vê-la com menos drama do que no livro original também é interessante. A história aqui é bem mais simples, a banda de Riley vai se apresentar num festival,

Amy is a friend so take it with whatever grain of salt you need but Riley Jean Crowe-Ellerman is seriously one of my most favorite characters of all time. And I love love love the way Amy writes her, with the subconscious/unspoken meanderings of her brain woven right into the narrative.

Will Ted make it to Riley's show in time? Will Riley manage to say those three little words? What's with the ramen??? YOU HAVE TO READ THIS SO YOU CAN FIND OUT!!!!!

Cute and sweet. The internal monologue matched Kissing Ted Callahan, but was more keyed up and nervous. This was short enough that it remained effective, but an entire novel of it would grow wearisome. I generally don't love novellas, but this hit the spot. ...more
