When Lana is approached to brush-up on her nursing skills to help rock star legend, Trevor Collins, with a four year old he has guardianship of and who may suffer the effects of fetal alcohol syndrome, she reluctantly agrees. The decision to return to the field which she’d abandoned after her husband and daughter were killed in a car accident is a very difficult one, but wanting to give back to Trevor’s aunt who helped her learn to live again after the tragedy, made saying no impossible.
Trevor works hard to keep his personal life private, so when Lana arrives to help with the child who has mysteriously come into his life, he has a lot of reservations. In time, he learns to trust Lana, and together, they embark on a journey where they uncover startling truths about Lily’s parents, while struggling to overcome their own personal tragedies and to open themselves to love.
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
When I saw this book I really wanted to read it. I thought oh a rock star…hot…and awww a kid involved…sweet. It turned out to be more like ugh why am I still reading this.
Lana lost her husband and child and after that she was never the same. Trevor lost his best friend and then got thrown into a web of lies he didn’t know how to navigate. Together they learn how to overcome their pasts, but although meeting each other may have been the catalyst they didn’t overcome anything together, they each did it on their own.
Face the Music has a very predictable storyline. The first half of the book consists of getting to know the three main characters Lana, Trevor, and Judy. And by getting to know I mean how they feel about every single thing in their lives and flashbacks to why they are the way the are. There is also very little dialogue in the first half and not really that much in the second half. By the time I finished the book I could tell you how any particular character felt about pretty much anything in their lives, but I didn’t feel connected to any of them. There was just no chemistry throughout the pages.
