Fever (Songbird #1) by Melissa Pearl

Ella Simmons is shy. She has lost her parents and is now joining her boyfriend David after leaving community college and moving to U of C.  She is following her boyfriend's dreams.

She loves to sing to jazz music and while taking a shower she sings the music she loves. To her surprise in a stall next to her a guy is singing with her. She escapes before she can meet him. Knowing she has a connection with someone other than David bothers her.

Then she meets her boyfriend's roommate, Cole Reynolds and she is even more confused by her attraction to him.

Cole has a dream. He wants to have a bar close to the college crowd someday and he is close to making his dream come true. He never thought to settle down until he listens to The voice. He wants to find her and keep her.

My thoughts:

I thought the premise of the book was sweet. I liked Cole. He was determined to find the girl who sang next to him and he fought hard not to be attracted to Ella and to hurt his roommate's feelings. He was not scared of confrontation when it was needed.

I had more problems connecting with Ella. Her lack of independence and decision making were my main problem with her.

I do think the series has potential.

“You're putty in my hands now, right?”
