I WAS CRUSHED BY MY HUNGER FOR HIM AND I COULD BARELY BREATHE.
Desire? Definitely. Forever? Maybe.
When Jake and Alyssa’s virtual affair peaks while his band tours Europe, Alyssa decides it’s Jake that she wants for her 18th birthday. She surprises everyone, including Jake, with a planned trip to London.
After three years apart and with their devastating breakup behind them, will their reunion be everything they’ve both dreamed of? Alyssa is soon thrown into Jake’s stardom, delicate family matters and a side of him she’s never seen before.
Since I finished the first book in the Heavy Influence series, First Kiss, I wanted to read this novella and meet up again with Ally and Jake. I wanted to see them get back together and read how they continued to love each other no matter how hard everybody else was trying to keep them apart.
Well, I got my wish and a little bit more. After not seeing each other in person for three years, Ally goes all the way to London to meet up with Jake and see where they stand. They’re good, you guys, very good. However, I can practically touch the big bomb hanging over our heads waiting to explode. So sad.
The thing is, Ally and Jake, although older (and let’s say more mature), still keep making mistakes that out of stubbornness will create a much bigger havoc later on. This kills me! I just want to wrap them in a bubble and see them happily ever after writing songs and playing music. But I know I know, this will make their story much shorter, so please Ann, carry on but just be gentle with my heart.
The second book, Broken Notes, can’t come out soon enough for me! I hope it has lots of music like First Kiss did because I sure missed the songs in this novella. That’s a pretty cool thing about this series, it’s not only about a story, it’s an experience. I do think readers need to meet Ally and Jake and check out their rockstar love story. It shines people, it shines.
*Note: While First Kiss is YA, Fever Pitch can be considered NA so I recommend it to readers 18+.*
