Strings Attached

Braebeach Rock Romance #1

Loriana Cappello






Ashton Chambers has one hell of a decision to make. Finish his final year of university or sign a lucrative record deal with his band, Koolum Law.
Pressure from the record company, a commitment to his family and being the glue keeping the contract on the table, is weighing heavy on Ash’s shoulders. But that’s not his only dilemma. Calla Bryson is the girl who stole his 16-year-old heart and now she’s back to steal it all over again.

Ash and Calla have a history of bad timing.
The first time around, Ash’s best friend stood between them.
This time, it’s their potential careers.
The one guarantee they have is the summer together.
The one promise they make—no promises.





My Review:

A lovely new read from Loriana, a NA / rockstar / second chance / friends-to-lovers sweet romance with a touch of heat, some drama and angst, all set in a quaint British seaside town resort.

Ashton and his friends are on the brink of making it big as a rock band, ready to sign their first contract, but not just there yet. He is still busking in his favourite spot when he spots a girl from his high school days who he had a crush on.

Calla is back in her hometown for the summer break when she runs into Ash, the boy she had a crush on but never made a move on her. They reconnect and talk about their high school days and their life since. Both have a thing for each other and are willing to see where their friendship will go, even though their lives are on different paths…. his a rockstar god and hers her own business.

Both Calla and Ash didn’t have the best start to their lives with some difficulties in growing up, but have survived and are managing. Calla knows Ash is headed for stardom and does not want to put her heart on the line only for it to be broken. Ash is very determined to change her mind and wants her with him on his journey, but they both want different things and decisions have to be made.

They both fall hard for each other, but the British Press play their usual part in blowing something up out of all proportion and their friendship hits a huge hurdle that needs bridging if they are to continue together.

I loved their story, it was real and interesting filled with everyday struggles and strifes, showing how interpretations can often be very misleading. I’m not normally a YA/NA / rockstar fan but I did enjoy reading this and would recommend it.
