Review: Sing by Vivi Greene


America’s most famous pop star flees the spotlight to recover from her latest break-up in Maine—only to fall for a local boy and be faced with an impossible choice at the end of the summer: her new guy, or her music.

Multiplatinum pop icon Lily Ross’s biggest hits and biggest heartbreaks (because they are one and the same):

1. AGONY. (That feeling when her ex ripped her heart out of her chest and she never saw it coming.)
2. GHOSTS. (Because even famous people are ghosted by guys sometimes. And it sucks just as much.)
3. ONCE BITTEN. (As in: twice shy. Also, she’s never dating an actor or a musician ever again.)

But this summer’s going to be different. After getting her heart shattered, Lily is taking herself out of the spotlight and heading to a small island in middle-of-nowhere Maine with her closest friends. She has three months until her fall tour starts-three months to focus on herself, her music, her new album. Anything but guys.

That is . . . until Lily meets sweet, down-to-earth local Noel Bradley, who is so different from anyone she’s ever dated. Suddenly, Lily’s “summer of me” takes an unexpected turn, and she finds herself falling deeper and harder than ever before. But Noel isn’t interested in the limelight. She loves Noel-but she loves her fans, too. And come August, she may be forced to choose.

This book has been exactly what I needed. I haven't read anything contemporary in a while. Its all been either really dark and heavy or fantasy. Which, don't get me wrong, I do love, but this has been such a breath of fresh air. And so so much fun.

Lily Ross is a pop icon, but she isn't very lucky in love. Having her heart broken countless of times its happening to her again. This time she wants to handle things differently and when her friend suggests spending some time at her house on a small Island, Lily is convinced its the right thing to do. She wants to write new music ready for her upcoming tour. Together with her two closest friends she is loving her time on the Island, most of all because it appears to be the only place where she can be truly herself. When Lily meets Noel she finds herself falling for him, fast and hard. He couldn't be more different from all the boys she has dated before. But what will happen when Lily's life will catch up to her. Can Noel handle everything that comes with dating a pop icon? Lily will have to make a hard choice between her music and the new happiness she found on the island.

This has been such an enjoyable read. It was light, easy and quick to read. I have liked all the characters very much, most of all Noel, of course. But what I really enjoyed the most is the friendship between Lily and her two closest friends.

I don't think its ever a bad think to fall in love a lot, quite the opposite. It takes courage to fall again after you had your heart broken, time and time again. But also what better feeling is there then falling in love with someone for the first time. That is one reason I have really enjoyed Lily. Greene has captured falling in love in a really heart warming and believable way.

I love the idea of the Island, it sounds like the perfect place for me. All I would have to take with me is my kindle packed with books and I could be very happy in this idyllic place.

What I also loved about Lily is how down to earth she is even tho her success is so huge.

This has been an adorable book about falling in love, music, home, friendship and finding yourself.

Great fun that will put a smile on your face and warm your heart.

Thank you to Maximumpopbooks for my review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
