Summer nights and star-crossed lovers! From USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen.

Once upon a time, he gave me a summer of friendship, followed by one perfect night. We shared a lot during our short time together. But he skipped a few crucial details.

I didn’t know he was a rock star.

I didn’t know his real name.

Neither of us knew I’d get pregnant.

And I sure never expected to see him again.

Five years later, his tour bus pulls up in Nest Lake, Maine. My little world is about to be shattered by loud music and the pounding of my own foolish heart.

Hush Note is a three book rock star romance series written by three authors: Sarina Bowen, Devney Perry and Rebecca Yarros. Lies & Lullabies is the first book in the series, a sweet emotional second chance romance. 

I’m not a fan of  the surprise pregnancy trope but I couldn’t resist reading Lies & Lullabies. A second chance rock star romance written by Sarina Bowen? Hell yeah! 

I loved the setting, the writing and the characters in this story. Jonas had his reasons to skip crucial details like his real name and the fact that he was a rockstar, when he was spending a summer away from all the madness. He definitely wasn’t expecting to meet Kira. Kira was going through a rough time when she met Jonas, their friendship came easy until their first and last perfect night together. 5 years later, Jonas decides to go back to Maine and seeing Kira is an unexpected surprise. 

Kira and Jonas reconnected fast. It didn’t seem too fast because their bond and their chemistry were pretty amazing. The intensity of their feelings made sense and felt real. I absolutely loved the side characters: Vivi was the sweetest little girl; Adam, Kira’s brother, was definitely my favorite side character; I loved Ethan and Nixon was definitely a very intriguing character (so excited about reading his story…!). I wish Adam would get his own book! That would be awesome but unfortunately it doesn’t seem likely.

There were a few things that frustrated me in the story. I didn’t get Kira’s reasons to keep Vivi a secret. She could have tried to reach him and tell him, it bothered me that she didn’t even try. Kira’s ex has a small role that didn’t made much sense, that story-line wasn’t wrapped up at all. Also, we get a bit of Adam’s fling with Ethan and it was left unresolved too, I wanted so much more of both of them!

Overall, Lies & Lullabies was a solid sweet entertaining second chance romance. I’m really excited about the next book, the tension and the chemistry between Graham and Quinn just in a few paragraphs: OFF THE CHARTS!

  1. I’m also not a big fan of the secret pregnancy trope but I am definitely intrigued. Saw another review for this yesterday and it made me want to pick it up. I’m liking the sound of the side characters and I do think romances with precocious kids in them are very cute! Think I’ll go at least add it to my wishlist now 😛 Great review!

    1. I think it’s the main reason for the low ratings. It was the reason I dropped one star on my rating, it irks me when the MC doesn’t make a valid effort to tell the father of her child. Sarina Bowen is a talented writer and the story is enjoyable. I can’t wait for the next one, the chemistry between the MCs is off the charts and it’s a second chance romance with no secret pregnancy. 🙂
