Book Club Thursday: Review

Facing the Music
Andrea Laurence
Book 1

In this sizzling and hilarious contemporary e-book romance, pop sensation Ivy Hudson returns to her small town to face her ex. Only trouble is, she made her Taylor-Swift-like career with the hit song “Size Matters”—and the football hero has had to live it down ever since.

Six years ago, high school sweethearts Ivy and Blake’s relationship imploded and both their lives were changed forever. Ivy became a rock star and Blake lost not only his dreams of a successful NFL career, but his reputation. Ivy’s angry song about their breakup, called “Size Matters,” hit the top of the charts and Blake became a national laughingstock. He’s salvaged his career and returned to Rosewood to be the high school football coach, regaining his status as town hero and leading the boys to the state championships.

When a tornado whips through town and destroys the high school gymnasium and stadium, a committee is formed to help rebuild and plan some charity fundraisers. Blake’s grandmother requests that Ivy return to Rosewood for the events. Forced back together for the good of their hometown and their careers, Ivy and Blake have no choice but to put aside their differences, stop running from their pasts, and finally face the music.

For fans of Kristen Proby and Colette Auclair, Facing the Music hits a perfect balance between small-town romance and big-time success. Follow Ivy and Blake as they fall back in love and figure out what does matter in the end…

Welcome back, today we are reviewing Facing the Music by Andrea Laurence. We'd love to hear your thoughts!


I was glad we picked this story. I will say that I've never read anything by Ms. Laurence so I couldn't wait to try it. The book gave me a vibe of being New Adult, personally I'm not a fan of New Adult and don't often read them but this story kind of was on both sides of the fence, which made it easier for me to read. Facing the Music is well written with likable characters and a nice small town feel to it. From the beginning you want everything to work out for both Ivy and Blake. The story line might not be anything new, but it's the characters that make you cheer! If you are looking for a light romance, then I think you'll like this. Happy reading!
