Library Journal: Riley Winn is one of the biggest names in music after her breakup album becomes an instant hit. The world thinks the lead single from the album is about her ex-husband, but it is actually about her college flame, Max Harcourt, whom she hasn’t seen in a decade. Riley decides to reclaim the narrative by asking Max if he will play in her tour band. Max loves music, but he decided to give up his dream of playing professionally to take over his family’s business. While he is happy enough with his decision, he sees the opportunity to perform with Riley as a chance to prove to himself that he made the correct decision to let go of his musical aspirations, and of her. Riley and Max have to work out the awkwardness of playing together again, but as they find their rhythm, they realize that the spark is still there—along with another chance for a future together. VERDICT Fans of Taylor Swift and author Bridget Morrissey will especially enjoy this emotional second-chance romance from married writing duo Wibberley and Siegemund-Broka (Do I Know You?).
