Blog Tour Review + Giveaway—Perfect Harmony by Emily Albright


Perfect Harmony
by Emily Albright
Publisher: Amberjack Publishing
Release date: September 18, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Pippa Wyndham is a top cellist―she’d never settle for anything less. Determined to get into the nation’s most prestigious music college, nothing’s going to stand in her way . . . Until her senior year of high school when a new guy from a fancy New York conservatory transfers to her school. 

Declan Brogan’s cocky, and he knows how amazing he is at the cello. He has every intention of knocking Pippa out of first chair and showing her who really belongs on top. Forced together when assigned a duet, their personal competition and mutual dislike transform into a teasing friendship.

Torn between her childhood crush and the boy who threatens her dreams, Pippa finds herself at risk of losing her best friend, her future, and the boy who makes her heart melt. Struggling to make things right, Pippa discovers that sometimes the thing you want the most doesn’t always end up being the thing you need.

Perfect Harmony is a book that has what I want—a strong and determined heroine and hero who somewhat worships the ground she walks on. Pippa is a top notch cellist that has a plan. That plan involves going to the best school for musicians and no one will take her away from her dreams. That is until Deacon walks in telling her point blank that he’s going to be the one on top. 

Pippa is having none of that. This story could come off as a love/hate relationship but it wasn’t. From very early on it’s very clear that Deacon caught the love bug while Pippa didn’t want to admit her feelings at all. Then there’s the whole other plot of Pippa being in love with her brother’s best friend. Who, I might add, didn’t ever make a move until he could clearly see another man honing in on his turf. 

There was a part in the book that completely didn’t work for me and then in the end was completely glossed over. It happens at the end of the book and I don’t really want to give anything away. But it involves a break up and to me I thought it was a huge cop out and in the end it wasn’t ever a big of why the breakup happened in the first place. It bothered me a lot. Not enough for me to hate the book because I thought this was so cute and romantic. 

Perfect Harmony is a very lighthearted and fun loving novel for fans of music and heroines that go after what they want. I enjoyed it so much!
