Making Sweet Music Together

Well Mia Ford/ Bella Winters has delivered such a heart warming, sexy yet suspenseful story for us here to enjoy. And I most certainly enjoyed this story of Charlie and Addy [aka Ada]. They dated for a short time in high school but she was too good for him and he didn't feel 'good enough' for her and didn't want to spoil her by being with him.  So he left her bitter and heartbroken. He didn't grow up wealthy but then his father made a great move and landed his business

Hot story that is very well written and has over the top chemistry between the two main characters. The story flows well of the pages and is captivating because of the use of words and the twists that are unexpected.

This story has nice hot scenes and a sweet romance. A story about letting the past be the past and try to get on with your life. It is not easy but it has to be confronted. Running away is not the solution because it always comes back to you. A captivating story that has a lot in it.

Charlie was ready to leave until the voice captured his attention. He couldn't stop thinking about her even after she left the stage. Ada was still panicking after her performance so when her friend tells her about the agent wanting to meet her she wanted to freak out more. When she is introduced to the talent agent she recognizes the guy ...more

The One I Love by Mia Ford. 5 Stars*****

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

It has that thrill of excitement that just grows as you continue reading it. Sweet!!!

Both Charlie and Addy came from wealthy families, maybe a different sides of the law so to speak, but also grew up in highschool. and even back then they both felt something, ok maybe Addy more than Charlie lo!.

This story was such a energentic not only with how both characters felt, dreamed and how much their fathets play in it, but also how the story h

Mia Ford and Bella Winters deliver another winner that is quite interesting. The geo is not perfect and the heroine is definitely aware of those facts. But when weifhed with his sensitivity and big heart, he still comes out in top. Danger from multiple sides, lust, passion, and love are the driving forces of this story and I very much enjoyed it.

About Ada…
She has the voice of an angel.
She's Lovely, she’s clutzy, she’s funny, she’s sincere, she speaks truth.
She’s a good girl all the way.
Even if she does nearly incite a food fight with a meatball…
She is altogether one of the most wonderful, beautiful and entertainng characters I have found in a book.
And I’m so glad I met her.

Charlie’s glad he met her, too.
After all, she’s the love of his life.
Even if it did take him a while to figure it out.

Bottom line: Wonderful. 5 stars.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. I really enjoyed the story of Charlie and Addy. This was a bit different with the background of music in it. The characters were so connected and both had their own problems to overcome. Though they knew each other in high school they are strangers now. Both chose very different career paths yet music is the common thread. The chemistry between them is great. This was a great book with a a little drama thrown in. I loved how they were able to get over ...more

This is a captivating story with lots going on. The main plot revolves around Ada and Charlie who knew each other from high school. Ada had a huge crush on Charlie, but after 2 dates, he then ignored her. Few years later, Charlie is a famous singer, Ada is a music teacher and through a friend, he tries to partner up with her. Then you have sub plots going on of drugs, dealers, and crazy ex-boyfriend! Lots going on as they try to get their HEA.

Love persists, even when someone walks away, misguidedly I think, and chemistry never fades. Years after dating briefly Charlie and Addy meet again and their chemistry and love is incredible. A beautifully written story, we get a clever story and wonderful characters. Absolutely lovely and highly recommend as a book. Avoid spoilers and just let the story enchant. This is a voluntary review of an advance reader copy.

Charlie and Ada story was good.
Ada shy great singer and trying to find herself I think was just living life the best she could.
Charlie rich kid looking for a singer to help his career and comes across Ada that’s when things start to look up.
They do have some obstacles that they have to get over and try keep the piece but they do find each other and that all that matters.
Great read

This was a fast-paced second chance steamy romance. Charlie and Addy dated in a little in high school and Charlie left to pursue his music. Addy became a music teacher and is trying to overcome her stage fright. Now he is back, looking for a female music partner and Addy is the one auditioning. I liked the characters as well as the story, the chemistry is steamy and the story held my interest throughout. A good read.

***received an ARC for honest review. This was now like 3.5 but i error on the upper side. I wasn’t really for the all the singing and all that entailed. I love rockstars but not necessarily this type, whatever this was. The twist and turns were fun, they were hot together, but this just wasn’t my fave. I’m sure if I was into a more broader version of song with romance this will be a gem, but not personally.

I really loved this beautiful romance. Charlie and Addie's story is passionate and emotional. These two have baggage from way back in high school. I just loved the chemistry between these two very complex characters. A well written, engaging story keeps your interest. While drama and danger add extra flavor to this entertaining read. I'm posting a completely honest, voluntary review.

Another great read from these two. Every book by them gets better and better. I loved this one a lot. Kept me intrigued and guessing the whole time. I really loved Charlie and Addy together. No matter what they endured, they were always meant to be. It was suspenseful as well, which made it more addicting to read. Great book.

A second chance love story about Ada and Charlie who dated a couple of times in high school. This is an entertaining, quick read that had witty banter, humor, drama, and a romance between two people who shared a love of music. My only complaint is that I felt the characters could have been more developed and the story a little longer. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

I’m torn between swooning and feeling a bit left short. While I am happy about how the story ended, I feel a bit robbed about the details of those “after” Charlie and Ada. The characters could have used a little more fleshing out as they both came across a bit unfinished. 3.75 stars.
I received this book for a voluntary, completely honest and non incentivized review.

Amazing romantic love story, written well with some much chemistry between the main characters Charlie and Addy. Mia Ford always writes amazing romantic stories that once you start you just can’t put the book down, you just caught up in the story feeling part of it. I throughly enjoyed this book.
