Blue Notes by Carrie Lofty

*Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I really liked this book. It was romantic, playful and had just the right amount of sexual tension.

Keely Chambers is a prodigy piano player that just recently transferred to Tulane University after receiving a music fellowship. Composing music and playing the piano is her voice, her way of dealing with the turmoil she's been through in her life. But it's something that she doesn't really share with other people unless forced to. She mostly keeps to herself and sticks to the practice rooms on campus. When a hot guy approaches her after one of her practices, she has no idea who he is, and doesn't stick around to find out.

Part of her fellowship is to mentor a freshman music student. She attends an open mic night to meet up with her mentee, Adelaide, and she her perform. It's there that she runs into, Jude Villars, the hot guy from the practice room. With a dare, he's actually able to get her up on stage to perform! It's a rush that she hasn't ever felt before. Both the crowd and her mentee are in awe.
" Who needs words when eighty-eight keys are more eloquent and far more beautiful?
Turns out Adelaide and Jude are brother and sister, which excites Keeley because she has a thing for Jude. He's a little bit arrogant, and cocky at times, but they have such a playful way of talking to one another. Their chemistry was pretty amazing. When he finds out she's a virgin, he vows to make her first time a memorable one. But, she might want more from him.
" I wonder," he whispers, "have you ever kissed anyone as hard as you want to kiss me right now?"
They've both experienced so much loss, and Jude is able to open up and share his past with her. But for some reason Keeley can't do the same. Will he forgive her when he finds out she hasn't been honest with him?

Keeley ended up having some really supportive people in her life. I loved the different relationships between the characters. Adelaide and Keeley became great friends and were able to teach each other so much about life and performing. Her foster parents and roommate were great too. I would definitely read another book by this author.

4/5 Fangs
