[Kame's ARC Review]: "A Seductive Melody"

A Seductive Melody by Crista McHugh
Publisher: Crista McHugh (September 15th, 2014)
Series: Kelly Brothers, 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

She has the scoop of a lifetime, but only if she betrays his trust…

Ethan Kelly lost his best friend and bandmate to an overdose, but staying clean is proving harder than he thought it would be. His only safety net during his first weeks of sobriety is fellow recovering addict, Becca. As she guides him through the darkness, he begins to trust her not only with his secrets, but also his heart. 

After years of trying to be the daughter her socialite parents wanted her to be (and failing miserably), Rebecca Shore finally has her life on track. Sure, she’s just an assistant at Moderne magazine when she’d rather be pursuing more serious journalism, but it’s a foot in the door. She’s just waiting for the scoop of a lifetime that will take her to the next level. But when she’s asked to help the reclusive and enigmatic rock star, her heart is torn between the career she’s always wanted and the man who bares his soul to her.

Kame's Review:

So far my favorite in the series

Ethan has hit rock bottom. He was the one who found his bestfriend with a needle in his arm, and he is determined not to go down the same path. Becca understands Ethan and his future struggles more than he knows.

Becca is a very strong character and by the end of the book I really admired her for the stand she took in her life. Ethan is one of seven incredible brothers. He stumbles but has the determination to get better. He is a caring soul and has a protective streak. I personally adored a speech he gave to Becca's father on Thanksgiving.

The plot was simple and more about Becca for me than Ethan. I enjoyed the few looks we got at the Kelly family. There was some confusion for me as to the time line as I think this book and the previous one about Dan seemed to have been done in parallel.

I enjoyed this soo much - I am looking forward to the next.
