Blog Tour Review + Giveaway- MENDING HEARTSTRINGS by Aria Glazi

Cover design by: Christa Holland at Paper & Sage (
Publication date: February 9, 2016

Book blurb: 
Kane’s a country singer who’s tangled with too many deceitful women. He’s learned his lesson: girls are for flirting and fun; emotions are for his music. But after spending a night with an earnest woman unlike any he’s known, he can’t force her out of his mind. So he goes in search of the woman he knows only as “Elle.”

On her last night in Nashville, the staunchly pragmatic Sabella found herself in a situation more suited to a romance novel than reality. Swept away, she ignored her rigidly self-imposed rules, succumbing to the fantasy just this once. But she knows real-world relationships have nothing in common with their fictionalized portrayals. When Kane unexpectedly shows up at her Portland apartment, she must choose between the practical truths she has learned and the desire for a passionate love she has struggled to suppress.

Despite the distance, Kane’s tour schedule, and their meddling friends, both are drawn to the chance for a romance neither quite believes is possible.
 I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy this one bit. In fact, I think I'm in love with Mending Heartstrings. Like, legit love. I knew once I had seen the blurb that this story would be the one for me. Don't ask me how I know, I just do. From the very first page, I melted. Kane didn't really do anything special, other than the fact he's a musician and I have a thing for those... Not that I've actually ever dated one, but you get the gist.

From that first meeting between Kane and Elle, hell, there was NO going back. They instantly had that click; that instant attraction. It wasn't like some books where they want to jump in the sack right away. It was more real than anything. These two beautiful people want nothing more to be together but life and certain feelings may end up keeping them apart. What's stopping them? Well, I guess right now, you want to know. Good! That means you can pick the book up and see for yourself how wonderful the story is.

Can the two overcome fears to be together? 

Kane and Elle are a great example of love and what love means. It isn't always easy, but it's so worth it. I absolutely adored the book's depth; it was at times light and other times serious. I think a good balance in books is always good to have. The only problem I would have with the book was the fact that it seemed a little bit too rushed in the end for me. Other than that, I think it was faultless. Do I want more Kane and Elle? Hell yes, I do! I think readers will enjoy this heartfelt story full of hope, music, and two loving characters that don't give up.

Author bio: 
Aria’s writing story started when her seventh-grade English teacher encouraged her to submit a class assignment for publication. That piece was printed, and let’s just say, she was hooked! 

Since then, Aria has run a literary magazine, earned her degree in Creative Writing (as well as in French and Russian literatures), and been published here and there. Though her first kiss technically came from a bear cub, and no fairytale transformation followed, Aria still believes magic can happen when the right people come together—if they don’t get in their own way, that is.

Other than all things literary, Aria loves spending time with her family, including her two unbearably adorable nieces. She also dabbles in painting, dancing, playing violin, and, given the opportunity, Epicureanism.
