A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.
My first ever Tillie Cole book! The only reason why I didn’t rate this higher is because I personally didn’t connect to the music theme like I thought I would. I do like music, but an entire book surrounding music composition wasn’t interesting to me. With that said, I really think this book was beautifully written and did not lack quality.
This is a romance between two broken people, who find themselves through their mutual love for music. The book has a sad tone and it’s very emotional, so if you consider reading this, bring tissues because you will need it! The romance was really cute and I loved the way the relationship blossomed. Bonnie and Cromwell made a great pair and I really liked the way they connected through music. Their love developed at a nice pace and they had great chemistry!
I have never heard about the concept of synesthesia before, but I think I can understand how sounds can be associated with colours (like the specific case mentioned in the book). It would be wonderful to experience something like this! I’m glad the author explored such a unique topic and made it the theme of the book. I learned a lot, so thank you Tillie Cole!
I really do think this book is good and is high quality. Like I said, I didn’t enjoy it as much because I didn’t love the music theme, but I am definitely going to pick more books from this author. If all of her books have this quality, I’ll come back for more! This would be perfect for readers who love romance and have a passion for music.
