REVIEW : Prelude to Love by Anne Barwell
Music speaks directly to the heart.
Two very different men face turning points in their lives after the collapse of long-term relationships….
Joel is a music teacher who knows it’s time to forget his ex and move on, while Marcus runs a lawn-mowing business and has come to Wellington to escape the reminders of a recent breakup. Although they’re opposites, when Joel and Marcus connect, their romance has the potential to hit all the right notes.
Too bad neither of them feels ready for new love.
With family and friends in common, dating is risky—things could get messy if it doesn’t work out. The sweet song of possibility draws them to each other, though, and they share a kiss following a Chopin prelude. But it will take some practice and perseverance to find their perfect harmony….
Prelude to Love by Anne Barwell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Moving on was never easy for both Marcus and Joel. But they needed it.
After some bad relationships in the past, it's quite hard to believe that they'll find a true love.
Both were so stubborn to admit their feeling to each other if not for Darin, Elle and Isabel playing matchmakers. Aah...family, sometimes we do need them, huh?
I liked the idea of the story, I liked the chemistry between Marcus and Joel. The music background for the story gave the story a soul.
This is a clean romance, the sex is definitely fade to black which is a little disappointing :P
There's jealousy and also family's story that needed to fix. Also Marcus needed to make sure that he's all for Joel and stopped his ex from coming on to him. Joel's problem with his Dad was quite believable and real, not overly dramatic as some of the books I read about family drama.
I liked the epilogue. Overall, this is enjoyable read and fun. Marcus and Joel are adorable together, and Marcus is definitely a keeper!
