Betty
Face the Music by Ali Vali was exactly the book that I needed to read during this time of crappy real life. This is a typical Ali Vali romance with strong characters, a beautiful setting (Nashville, Tennessee), and an enemies-to-lovers style tale. The two main characters are beautiful, strong-willed, and easy to fall in love with. The romance between them is steamy, and so are the sex scenes.

Music producer Mason Liner and Victoria Roddy, the daughter of country music celebrity Sophie Roddy must

Music, romance, family, mother/daughter dynamics, problem diva what a ride. This read made me think about what it feels like to have someone in your corner that believes in you. Veronica Roddy, reluctant manager for her country music royalty mother. As a result, Veronica is not living her life and hates what her mother, Sophie Roddy is doing to her career and life. Mason Liner, works with her father as a music producer and she is unbelievably awesome with her straight talk and desire to be ...more

This really is only my second full length romance I have read by Vali and I would have to say this was okay. Face the Music is really an emotional roller coaster. The mains in this one are Mason and Victoria. Another key play is Victoria's mom Sophie. Mason is a confident, attractive, kind and thoughtful woman. Victoria has really lived in her mother's shadow and she may be attractive but for sure she is jaded. This is mainly because her mother is a piece of work and has treated her terribly. So ...more

Ok this was a very solid entertaining romance read!

Im a fan of Ali Valis romance reads and this didnt fail. I was so interested because I love music romance books but this specific one I thought was done very nicely because your MC is not actually the star but rather the daughter of a star, living in her shadows.

So whats interesting about this read was the additional twist of mother/daughter dynamics which was interesting to read (for personal reasons)..

When her father ask her help with one of their bigger client Sophie Roddy who has been going self destruct lately she is reluctant to do so.

Country-music, Nashville-centered romance. Overcoming challenges, becoming your own person outside of your parent's shadow, and realizing your own self-worth. Took a little while to warm up to this story, but I loved how truly supportive Mason - the dominant, confident character - is as she and Victoria try to make it work.

Victoria Roddy has spent her life making sure her mother's music career stays on track. As her manager, this task gets more and more difficult as her country-music legend

I RECEIVED AN ARC COPY OF THE BOOK FROM THE PUBLISHER VIA NETGALLEY AND VOLUNTARILY LEAVING MY REVIEW.

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS STORY. MASON AND VICTORIA ARE BOTH GREAT CHARACTERS. BOTH ARE STRONG WILLED AND CAN BE STUBBORN BUT THEY ARE CARING INDIVIDUALS ONCE YOU GET TO KNOW THEM. AT FIRST, VICTORIA HATES MASON BUT AS THEY SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER THEN SHE FINDS OUT SHE LIKES MASON AS MORE THAN JUST A FRIEND. THEY REALLY ARE AN ADORABLE COUPLE.

I REALLY ENJOYED THE STORY LINE AND LOVED ALL THE

I received this ARC via NetGalley and publisher for an honest review..many thanks!
Sometimes when I have read other Ali Vali books its either hit or miss but this was a hit for me.
All of Victoria Roddys life she has lived in the shadow of her famous legendary Country music artist Sophia Roddy. She gave up her dreams to be an artist but unfortunately she is her mothers manager and babysitter trying everything she can to keep her on the right path but the drinking and drugs finally take their toll.

Country music queen Sophie Roddy probably ruined career after two consecutive drug overdoses. When Mason Liner, a producer from Sophie's record label, intervened, she wasn't expecting to experience feelings for Sophie's daughter and manager, Victoria Roddy. Growing up with Sophie was not exactly pleasant for Victoria, and she usually keeps everyone at arm's length to avoid getting hurt worse. But the pull towards Mason was strong, and was the risk of letting her in a right decision?

I usually really like the books from this author, but this one felt a bit off for me.

Victoria is the daughter of a country music legend, but her mom their, Sophie, seems to be more interested in drugs and booze than her career or daughter. Music exec Mason steps in to tell both women the truth and help them navigate their way to a solution. Mason is the polar opposite of Victoria, she loves life, is happy and confident and always seems to see the bright side. Victoria dislikes her from the get

This is Ali Vali's 25th book and it's awesome! I loved this stand alone story about family, music and love. You can feel this author in the storyline like all of her books but this one is different from her usual New Orleans fishing or mob offerings. The main characters were so good together and had chemistry burning the pages. The family dynamics were intense and emotional. The ending is just perfect. This book is a must read and a definite recommend. I received an ARC of this book from the ...more

Face the music was a fast fun read. I loved the setting and I enjoyed the characters of Mason and Bryce. I thought their story was engaging and I could relate to the difficult relationship between Bryce and her mother. The dysfunction drew the reader in and the characters weaknesses just made them that more believable. I had never read Ali Vali, but I would certainly keep a look our for more of her titles. This was a solid romance. I received this title as an advanced reader copy in exchange for ...more
