Book Summary:

Welcome to a seductive world where two solo artists combine their talents-and their hearts-to make beautiful music together…

Lacy Dawson is a young singer-songwriter with a record deal, a studio gig, and a serious case of writer’s block. After looking for love songs in all the wrong places, she finds inspiration at an online support group called Song Writers Anonymous. Thanks to one mysterious member who motivates her and inspires her, Lacy’s career is back on track. But is she ready to meet her sexy musical muse…face to face?

Eli is definitely interested in hooking up with Lacy, aka “LoveCoda.” But between writing her new album and his band’s success, they can’t find the time to face the music-or each other-about their burgeoning online romance. All that changes when Eli and Lucy get booked on tour together. In person, the attraction is all too real and explosive. They both should walk away, but once they are in each other’s arms, there is no turning back…

Longer Review:

*flails arms* I’m completely struck with how much I love this book! #seewhatididthere?! Fresh, fun, witty and angsty, Love Struck will pluck at the chords of your heart.

As an up-and-coming folk music singer, Lucy is desperately trying to get her feet back on the ground and the words back on the page after a terrible tragedy took away the man she was going to marry. She’s struggling for words – literally – which is a problem since she needs to write new songs for her next album. The only place she can find solace is in her online (and anonymous) best friend. Of course, when Lucy goes on tour with Eli’s band she realizes that one of them is her online paramour, misunderstandings are had and love sparks.

Eli and Lucy have this magnetism towards each other that made me love them each immediately. Coming from someone who has more online friends than real-life friends, I was instantly drawn to the story and I quickly fell in love. I turned these pages reading through my fingers for a bit – because GOD, the story had me right on the edge. It’s the kind of story that has you screaming at the characters because YOU KNOW the deal, but they don’t. It may make you want to throw the book across the room at times, but at others you’ll want to snuggle it close.

It’s also pretty funny. There are laugh-out-loud moments that had me snorting and shaking my head. I love Laurelin & Kayti’s writing. They know how to get me hot and bothered and how to put a smile on my face.

It’s genuine, real and emotionally charged; seamlessly written and hopelessly romantic. I don’t have to fake it – I absolutely loved it and want to scream it at the top of my lungs.
