When two people connect, they can make beautiful music together. But what happens when music is the thing that tears them apart?

Evan James had it all. Drop-dead sexy, brilliantly talented musician, a skyrocketing career and his high school sweetheart by his side. When he’s offered a golden opportunity to go on tour, he never imagined she wouldn’t go with him. Without her, he found his dream meant nothing. Three years later, bereft and alone, Evan stops at an open mic night and spots someone sitting in the audience, the beautiful face of a woman he’d never forget...Maddy, his one true love.

Madison Grey had only ever loved one man. When Evan broke her heart she had no choice but to move on with her life, start a career of her own, and she even finds a new love. Still, thoughts of Evan were never put to rest. And on one fateful night, she unexpectedly hears him pour his heart out into a new song. A song about broken hearts, lost love, and second chances. A song about her.

With the help of their scheming friends, Maddy and Evan are thrown into each other’s lives once more. While learning to love and trust again, there is only one thing left on both of their minds... Is life better with or without you?

If I had to use only five words to describe Without you, I would say it was: light, heartwarming, pleasant, entertaining and sweet. Every of this adjectives phenomenally summarizes how I felt during reading Julie Prestsater’s novel. It’s one of those books that wonderfully make a quick read in between and keep a smile plastered to your face. Frankly, it’s not something that would satisfy you on a long shot, but it will warm your heart and certainly make your evening pleasurable.

If you know Bruno Mars song If I was your man, Without You would certainly make you think of it. I have a strong feeling that it was the song that inspired the author. And while in this song Mars is singing his heart out to a girl he lost for other man, Evan James a drop dead gorgeous Grammy – winning musician is not able to forget about his high school sweetheart Madison Grey and wants to fight for her.

When Evan came back to his home town and stopped at open mic night in one of the bars, he absolutely didn’t hope for his Maddy to be sitting in the audience. He decided to perform his new song, Without You. Song he wrote about her. While putting his heart on display with every ‘should haves, would haves and could haves’ he strongly hoped for second chance. With the help of the wedding of his and Maddy’s best friends, Evan starts the fight for the love of his life.

From the start to finish I knew how this story would go, but the level of predictability wasn’t something I minded much. At that moment I wanted a cute, short read that will make my heart beat a little faster and I got what I hoped for.

So if you just like me, look for sweet and sexy second chance romance story with talented pop singer and girl like every of us, go grab it and have fun!
