“What’s love got to do with anything?”

Physical attraction and chemistry were everything.

One woman? Gray had tried that and failed.

Meaningful relationships weren’t something Gray Dennison had ever experienced or coveted during his many years on the road with his band, CraVed. Being unattached suited his simple, hedonistic, playboy lifestyle. Add his cocky, sometimes arroga

KL Shandwick has just blew me away with this one.
We have a love triangle that takes us over Gray, Hettie and Phoebe's love story, painful yes but the emotional roller coaster had me not wanting to put this book down. I loved Gray he's not your typical rock star he has a conscious and a story that defines why he's like he is. And the writing was so good you knew there was more to come. Two strong women but only one will get the prize but you wanted them both happy well I did.

"I want to know what love is"
I don't know where to start with this brilliantly written book about Gray Dennison, front man for the rock group CrAved and the two women who love him.
Have you ever had a relationship long or short and due to timing or circumstances, it couldn't go anywhere? But you never forgotten that person and had the chance years later to reconnect, only to discover things have changed and people move on. Gray had a mind blowing five week exclusive relationship

WOW! If you have read the Ready For Flynn series then you know a little about how much angst and the twists and turns that KL's books contain, if you loved them then this is on another level. Feelings are hard sometimes to understand, how they affect us and the events that lead us into adulthood. I know that things that happened to me in my childhood stayed with me, they do affect how I react and behave as an adult, so I did completely understand how Grays thinking got a bit screwed up along the ...more

I've always loved reading love triangle stories because they give it more depth, more passion, more angst and I absolutely love feeling torn as to who will stay with who in the end. I sometimes love to hate one of the characters and root for the other one.

What started as a fling between Gray and Hettie that lasted for 5 weeks, in reality felt like their feelings developed way quicker for each other in those five weeks.

The whole story kept going back and forth between Hettie and Gray meeting up a

What a edgy story!! I think it goes without saying that I am a fan of this author and her stories of love, mixed with real human stories or loss or tragedy, or just emotional baggage and how one can struggle with it. This story is more about Gray and his own difficulties with love and how to even recognize it when it's staring him in the face.
Was this an easy flowing read where all the characters easily blended and ended in a happily ever after story? No, in my opinion it's a story that may fru

"Teach Me".......

Really enjoyed this book. The characters were amazing. The friendship of the band members was good and often funny. Gray and Hettie were great. A hot chemistry you don't want to miss. Gray is kind of a confusing man, he up front with his ways though. I actually wished I could slap him a few times. It was just kind of sad of all the years wasted because he didn't know what he was feeling was love.
Seriously a good read check it out!
Thanks Jamie Nibarger Ellis

This is my favorite story by K.L. Shandwick so far!! It had a love triangle with Hettie, Phoebe and Gray. I really enjoyed reading the story! Gray is my favorite as he's not just any rock star. He does care about his life and being famous isn't one of them.
The writing grabs you and gives great detail.

"Life is only as complicated as you want to make it, Gray. If you're feeling this bad, and man, let me tell you, I've never seen you look as miserable as you have since you came into this diner...

I really enjoyed Notes On Love.
K L Shandwick always delivers a good read!
Gray and Hettie's story is spread over the course of a few years. From meeting while studying, to adults with lives and "loves" in between. They re-connect and Hettie always knew Gray was the love of her life. Gray didn't know what love was, just that he'd never forgotten Hettie, and with his rock star lifestyle, he never really realised what he was missing. He just knew no woman compared to Hettie.

I’m going to start off by saying I’m not really much into rock star books. I have a hard time connecting. I really wanted to love this one and while I felt the author did a great job with the characters and the Love, I felt it was very long. The writing was good, and the plot was good, but for me, I just couldn’t love it. I would be willing to read more from this author and will look into other books. 3 stars for writing and the characters.

Rockstar second chancel.

A brilliant story of fame, fortune, and empty hearts. Having had a brief hot tryst in college, Hettie and Gray have lives on different sides of the pond and are destined for heartbreak. Gray leaves with only a text to Hettie and in the years after rises to fame with his band in the UK. Then, years later as Gray's life changes, he finds himself in Miami and thinks of Hettie. The girl that has his heart. As in most of KL's rockstar romances, there is pain on both sides. As

I am going to keep this review short and to the point.

This book was amazing. It was long but so very worth every word to every page I read. This book isn't your normal rock star book. Its full of heartache, angst and love triangle that will leave you breathless if not teary eyed. Gray was one beautiful man who had issues with his past that troubled him in his adult years. Not being able to settle down and chose wanted he wanted was a major issue for him. After giving himself time to heal. He kn

KL Shandwick is becoming a go to read author, this book was amazing, I love hot rock stars and this book delivered and went over the top. Gray is a grown to earth guy, who happens to be a hot rock star. He has commitment issues and doubts about love because of his family circumstances, this leaves him to find a way to get himself Hattie, they will have your emotions all over the place, it will pull your heart and make you read all of the book in one sitting.

Notes On Love is one of the most beautiful and emotional Rock Star Second Chance Love story that I have ever read, my emotions were all over while reading, it actually sucked me right into the story line.

Gray Dennison is lead singer for CraVed, an up and coming rock band on the rise In the U.S and UK. Gray is every woman's dream sexy, hot, talented ( and yes he has a British accent "swoon") although he has his fair share of girls commitment is not something Gray is familiar with and we get to wi

Notes on Love is the emotional story of Gray, a rock star on the rise and his beautifully flawed relationships with the women in his life.

Gray first meets Hettie when they are at college together in the US and they enjoy a hot and heavy five week affair before Gray leaves to return to the UK to pursue his career with his band CraVed. Despite feelings of unfinished business, each move on with their lives in the years to come until Gray returns to the US and memories of Hettie come flooding back.

Gray is part of a rock band and has never forgotten his college relationship, although he wasn’t sure what he felt as he swears he doesn’t feel love. Hettie has never forgotten her five-week relationship in college and has been thinking about him more with the problems in her own relationship.
Gray admits that he has feelings for his current bed buddy, Phoebe, but tells her it’s feelings not love. Phoebe supported Gray though his grief in loosing Lizzie, who was close to but didn’t love. When Gra

If you love a good rock star romance, then this is the one for you. It has it all, the angsty rock god, the love of his life, the sex, the misunderstanding, the rowdy band I said it has it all.

Gray is in a band that is definitely on the way up; he comes to America for the band's first break through tour there. While he is there he decides to connect with his old flame, Hettie, the girl he met in school, the one girl who he has never forgotten.

Gray is a great guy, I really loved him

This story was my first from this author, and it was good. I liked how she described everything all the details where well placed, along with the characters as well. The 3 POV I could have done without but in the end it really helped with the flow of the story. The characters now those were super amazing, always seemed to come off as the nice and sweet guy but had an A## side to him as well. Hettie that name I have never ever heard before shocking but it was different and fit her to the "T", she ...more

I’m no stranger to the works of KL Shandwick. The characters brought to life through the pages of Notes on Love are indescribable! As Grayson Dennison and his band, CraVed start to live the “rockstar life,” he tries to stay humble. As a UK band they’re trying to expand their following state side.

Great love story filled with angst!!!!

Notes on Love is a rock romance and second chance romance story by the KL Shandwick. KL has a way of making the reader feel as if they are right in the story. I felt the emotions the characters were going through. I was mad, laughed and cried. In this story we meet Hattie and Gray. These 2 great characters started their love story while they were innocent college kids. After a 5 week whirlwind romance Gray had to leave to start his destiny of being an artis

Read a few chapters and eyes started closing so decided to start reading again this morning. I got so far in, yelled no at Gray, turned my kindle off and sat and cried.

This is the first book that I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed.

We follow the story of Gray, a hot rock star, Hettie who had a fling with Gray in college.

Gray is a man that doesn't show his feelings and I feel that he is emotionally stunted, there were times in this book that I wished I could grab Gray through the pages and give him a shake.

I think that I was rooting for Hettie in this book, she lost the love of her life and never recovered, she then begins a relationship with s

I cannot believe my good fortune in the books I have purchased and read lately! This was another beauty! Gray is a rock god. Hettie teaches high school science to horny teenagers! These two people met in their last year of college and we're inseparable for 5 weeks. Hettie knew she was in love with Gray from the start. Gray knew he cared but love? Not so far in life.

It takes years and hundreds of women to lead him back to Hettie. When he messes up again it takes more years a

It's hard to put into words how great Notes on love is but here goes. I was hooked on this book I am not normally that fussed on love triangle books but this one was different Considering Gray is a rock star he actually has a conscious and a past that shows you why he is the way he is. It's hard as you will like both woman and want them both to be happy but only one will get the rock star in the end.

In the last month this authors books have become some of my favourites, and this one didn't disappoint.
Gray Dennison is not your average rockstar, he has a conscious! but being brought up by a single father after his mother abandons them, he has commitment issues and doubts his own ability to love anyone, which causes a lot of mistakes, heartache and hurt to himself and others.

The bones of this story were really good but it was incredibly long and drawn out. It was mostly from a dual POV, which meant that it was quite repetitive because you had one scenario but two POV's. Gray was a good guy mostly but he was emotionally stunted and not always likeable. I think the story was dragged out over too long a period and I felt that there was quite a lot of pointless dialogue. Personally I think it would've been a better book if it'd been streamlined and because of this it ge ...more

I found myself skimming chapters ahead until I just read the epilogue to see who he ended up with and I really could've cared less.
