Beautiful Bastard

Singing in the shower takes on a whole new meaning in Melissa Pearl's first New Adult Contemporary Romance.

Ella Simmons does not want to move across the country. But she is, because her boyfriend has persuaded her to join him at UChicago to finish out her college education. Never able to tell him no, she hops on a plane and makes the trek from LA expecting to adjust to life like she's often forced to, but things are not that simple when she hears a luscious voice singing over her shower wall. His deep, sexy tenor makes her weak in the knees, spreading fire through her limbs and making her question everything about her life and relationship.

Can one voice really have that much of an impact?

Cole Reynolds is on his way out. In his final year at UChicago, the only thing he wants to do is finish school and get on with his life. But the sweet voice that interrupts his morning shower turns his world upside down. Compelled to find his shower songbird, he begins a search across campus. The only thing to distract him from this goal is his roommate's gorgeous girlfriend who's just arrived from LA - Ella Simmons.

Relationships are put to the ultimate test as future dreams are questioned and friendships are thrown on the line for love.

It took me a while to finish this book. It's not that I didn't like it. I did, I just think it could have been a little bit better. The characters were all really likeable. I loved the idea of the story. I just feel like it wasn't put together like how I wanted it to.

Ella is an honest person. But honestly? I wish there was more drama with her, Cole and David. It started and ended too quickly! I wanted more fights and arguments. I wanted more secrets. I do not support people cheating but I feel like it would have spiced this book up a little bit!

Cole. I wish Cole was a bad boy. I tried to like him but I just ended up liking David more for some reason. If Cole had a bad boy side to him, I'm sure he would have been more likable for me. 

Overall, this book will be getting three stars from me. I feel like I expected too much from this book. :(
