Reviews Broken Little Melodies

  • Pamela Stallings
    By far my favorite book by the amazing Jennifer Ann!!! I have a thing for rockstar books especially ones that you can feel the music through. It's my favorite kind of music and this book just spoke to me in different ways. Our main characters are Isabelle and Roman who meet at a music camp. These characters go through so much. It was a constant emotional roller coaster ride. It was actually quite draining and I found myself saying geez I just wan...

    This story about Isabelle and Roman was so great. These characters are sweet and stayed true to themselves, even at the bleakest times. A great story about growing up, facing adversity, and second chances.

Intense beautiful love story.
  • Jody
    Young love rises to epic proportions in this emotionally intense romance between two people from opposite sides of the tracks. As readers become more captivated by their unforgettable romance outside influences, distance, and self-perceptions all weigh on them to pull them apart in a heartbreaking and hard-fought journey to HEA. By the turn of the final page readers will be left exhausted but immensely satisfied by the journey undertaken and the ...

    I love rock star romances – I’ve read a lot of them. Broken Little Melodies is yet another one I can add to my list of the ones I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Isabelle and Roman meet at summer music camp when they are young. Each summer has them coming back, making their ‘friendship’ grow a little bit stronger year after year. They have their struggles, circumstances break them apart, and hearts get broken. Five years later, they meet again. ...

  • Kathryn Linke
    Broken Little Melodies, is Isabelle and Roman's story. This is a tale of first love and second chances told in a dual point of view, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a rocker/musician romance. Isabelle and Roman are both incredibly strong, endearing characters and complex characters. Their story is raw, intense and filled with emotion and is honestly quite draining at times. The story line delves into their past as children, right up...
  • Polly Barreto
    I have to say that Jennifer Ann did not disappoint me with her second chance romance, Broken Little Melodies. This book hits all the right notes! Belle and Roman meet at a music camp when they are in their teens – and the rest they say - is music in the making. Totally love a rocker story, and this one was just WOW!
  • Christy Pastore
    I dare you not to fall in love with Belle and Roman's story. This is a challenge, you must accept it! Jennifer Ann has written a beautifully poetic, second chance love story. I adored these characters and felt every moment of their pain, their heartbreak, and their love. Every single word--every melodic word holds meaning for these two characters, and the magic that unfolds from page to page is crafted masterfully by the author. Broken Little Mel...

    5 stars Loved it!!!! Two young teenagers become unlikely friends, their relationship develops into something more. Many challenges will stand in their way, but doesn't love conquer all?
  • Sohinee (Poesy In Chrysalis Reviews)
    Loved the story. A second chance romance novel. Both Isabelle and Roman were great characters. But most of all, it was the narration which kept me hooked to the story. I haven't read any of Jennifer Ann's previous titles, but, I surely did love her writing style in this book.
  • Sierra Hill
    If you enjoy rock and roll, second-chance love stories with a little heartbreak sprinkled in, this book is for you! I loved this story about Belle and Roman who are destined to be together, no matter what gets in their way. Jennifer Ann's writes a story of two young loves, growing up in different worlds, but falling in love each summer at camp. The first part of the book shares their childhood story and it rips you apart when their young hearts a...

  • Jennifer Hanson
    Another 5 star read by the amazingly talented Jennifer Ann! Broken Little Melodies is a second chance romance (the first by Jennifer and I certainly hope not her last). I feel like this may be her best work to date. Isabelle Martin and Roman Stone have an amazing chemistry from the first page (when they are mere kids meeting at camp for the first time) to the last page (when they are adults and run into each other by chance or is it fate?). You c...

    Review to come!See more reviews on my blog Novels and NecklacesActual rating: 4.5 starsI haven't ever read a book by Jennifer Ann prior to this, but let me tell you...I'm going to start! This book was absolutely amazing and I feel like I've been missing out on a great author all these years! I loved everything about this book (except one tiny thing that made me give this book 4.5 instead of 5 stars). I'm a sucker for rockstar romances and I've on...

    Escape into My Reads Book BlogBroken Little Melodies by Jennifer Ann left its mark on me. I enjoyed reading this book immensely and loved the Romeo and Juliet vibe it gave. From the beginning the book kept me captivated and made me feel all the emotions of young love and second chances. Roman is a rich good looking kid, he’s friendly, confident, musically gifted with amazing vocals, and his warm attitude just swarms people to him. Isabelle aka ...

    I love friends to lovers books - Broken Little Melodies is that and so much more. Roman & Belle (as only he can call her) have been each other's crutch since meeting at a Music Camp in their early teens. Isabelle is from the wrong side of the tracks and Roman was the silver spoon child, but with more in common than what's on the surface. I loved both of these characters - and rooted for them throughout the story. Roman was a dream, flawed, beauti...

    Who doesn’t love a rock star? All that raw sex appeal displayed on stage with lasers and strobe lights? Hair you want to tangle your fingers in and capable hands pounding out a hard beat on a drum or teasing a love song from the strings of a guitar? The sexy voice wrapping around you and taking you far away from reality? Imagine your favorite rock star….okay, now pretend you’ve known him since he was a kid, and you love everything about him...
  • katherine
    Tumultous but TypicalROFL I think the author meant flaccid vs the used placid!!! I found this very typical and I wish authors would choose to have the "actors" in their books strand for what's wrong and illegal. In today's world we need to teach we can have what we want in life via working hard and not tolerate those around us beating people up because they have money!There is no mystery here but there are two dedicated kids growing up knowing wh...

They only have the summer together but each year their bond grows stronger even during the school year. But each are dealing with a lot of troubles at home that they do not share with each other.

They faced everything head on and came out on the other side happy and more in love! Recommend this book to all that love HEA'S!
