Giving true love a spin . . .
Michelin Moses is a country music star on the rise. With a hit single under his Texas-sized belt buckle and a sold-out concert tour underway, his childhood dreams of making it big are finally coming true. But there’s one thing missing—a promise to his dying mother that he’d find it—him—when the time was right. With a little luck, he won’t have to wait too long . . .
Lucky Ramirez is a hunky boy toy who dances at The Broom Closet, one of West Hollywood’s hottest gay bars. He loves what he does, and he’s good at it—almost as good as he is at playing dumb when he spots Michelin Moses at the bar. What happens next is off the charts—and keeps Michelin coming back for more. He’s just not sure it’s the right move for his career. But if Lucky gets his way, Michelin will get Lucky—and no matter how the media spins it, neither of them will be faking it . . .
All Note Long by Annabeth Albert is the third book of the Perfect Harmony Series. In this installment, we finally get to read Michelin’s story! Michelin wasn’t quite what I expected, but he grew on me. His love interest, Lucky, on the other hand, was perfection. The story was a little up and down for me but overall I enjoyed it.
I’ll start off with the negatives first…
-Fake boyfriend trope. I don’t like it. I don’t why, but I don’t. As soon as I realized, that’s where it was going it put a damper on the story. I know it’s hinted at in the end of the blurb, but it still took me by surprise. This negative point is all about personal preference.
-Michelin. He frustrated me and gave me high blood pressure. He was such a doormat. I could understand to some extent him not standing up for himself but after a while, it grew tiresome. In my opinion, it took him too long to grow a pair.
Now for the positives…
-Lucky. He’s brave, sweet, and loyal. I adored his character and for me, he was the highlight of the book.
-Michelin. Although he frustrated me, there was still much to be liked about him. The way he treated Lucky brought on some serious feels.
-Opposites attract trope. Annabeth Albert did a great job making believe that two such different personalities could fit together so perfectly.
-Chemistry. It was palpable. These two were smoking hot.
-The tweets at the beginning of each chapter. The social media junkie in me loves when emails, text messages, status updates, or tweets are included in stories.
-The end. I thought it was lovely, and their HEA felt solid.
As far as this being book 3 of the series- can it be read alone? Absolutely. You’re not going to feel lost nor will it spoil anything about the previous books should you chose to go back and read them.
All in all, I believe this was a great addition to the Perfect Harmony Series. If you’re in the mood for a loving, steamy romance, then give this one a go! And check out Annabeth Albert’s backlist while you’re at it! She’s got great books. She’s an auto-buy author of mine. 4 Musical Notes ♪♬♫♩
