Présentation de l'éditeur

2nd Edition

A Blue Notes Novel

Blame it on jet lag. Jason Greene thought he had everything: a dream job as a partner in a large Philadelphia law firm, a beautiful fiancée, and more money than he could ever hope to spend. Then he finds his future wife in bed with another man, and he’s forced to rethink his life and his choices. On a moment’s notice, he runs away to Paris, hoping to make peace with his life.

But Jason’s leave of absence becomes a true journey of the heart when he meets Jules, a struggling jazz violinist with his own cross to bear. In the City of Love, it doesn’t take them long to fall into bed, but as they’re both about to learn, they can’t run from the past. Sooner or later, they’ll have to face the music.

1st Edition published by Dreamspinner Press, December 2011

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Maybe not the best there is, but quite sweet anyways 8 décembre 2014

Picked up during a Dreamspinner Press sale, and I'll probably try a few more in the series in the next one. It was pleasant to read, although quite predictable - too predictable at times. The French is mostly believable aside for one or two mistakes. The story uses a lot of clichés, too, but the few original parts are still nice.

Not the book of the century, but I can see the appeal of the series, and I hear some of the next volumes are better so I might give it a go !

It is obvious that I am in the minority with my opinion of this book. I wanted to like it. I love music. I love the violin. I love romantic books set in Paris. I did not love this book. I didn't connect with Jules at all. I liked Jason, but not enough to keep reading. I did like the flashback chapter with Robbie. Unfortunately, I started rooting for him to make some kind of an appearence and sweep Jason off his feet, which of course was never going to happen. This book was not my cup of tea, but the writing was solid, the sexy scenes were hot, and it was well edited. I think the majority of readers will like, it just wasn't my thing.

“Life's gonna take you, where you never thought you'd go....When you finally think you've got it down, It isn't so. It's not always getting what you want, but wanting what you get...” Carrie Newcomer

In a drastic moment of truth, Jason Greene of 'The Blue Notes' by Shira Anthony gets a reality check. In the flash of an eye, he realizes that his life, everything he's worked so hard to achieve, doesn't exist. As painful as it seems, Jason is actually receiving a very precious gift; rather than going along blindly pursuing what he thought he wanted, he's put in a position to question and re-evaluate himself. Jason learns that, in the journey of life, it's not what we achieve, as much as it is the joy the accomplishments bring us.

Jason Green doesn't realize how unsatisfying his life is until he's forced to think about it. Everything in his life seemed so perfect—perfect fiancée, perfect job, perfect life, but it isn't true. His fiancée is unfaithful, his money brings him no joy, nor does his job for which he gave up his first love, music. Jason is understandably confused and mournful since his world is turned upside down. He's invested so much energy in manipulating his life, that he's thrown the baby out with the bathwater. He's hidden parts of himself that are now screaming to be expressed and he feels lost and vulnerable, not knowing what to believe. When he escapes to Paris to re-group, he meets Jules, a compassionate, delightful, talented, and sexy young man, who has him questioning his own sexuality, something else in his life that Jason has tried to control because it didn't fit into the master plan for his success. What he leans in Paris is that instead of being in control, he's let circumstances control him. What he needs to learn is that life and feelings can't be controlled or manipulated; they just are.

Jules encompasses everything that Jason is running from. He's strong, independent, a musical genius, and has a sensuality which proves to be irresistible; but Jules has his own demons to fight as well. Although Jason doesn't realize it at the time, Jules is his guardian angel and knight in shinning armor at the same time. Jules helps Jason see the true misery inside; he holds up a mirror and reflects his feelings back to him. Through his persistence and intensity, Jules helps Jason accept parts of himself that have been buried for a long time. He helps Jason tackle what Jason has always considered his weaknesses and failures as he learns to accept himself for the wonderful person others see. In a similar way, Jason does the same for Jules. Jason combines that which was good in his old life to help and influence Jules. As they learn to love themselves, they also fall deeper in love with each other. Ultimately, it's their love and appreciation for music which strikes a cord with both men, enabling them to find redemption and peace of mind and spirit.

It's difficult to imagine a more romantic setting for a love story than Paris and a more healing one. Music, the universal language—enjoyable, inspiring, soothing, and healing. Shira shares her love and appreciation for both in this intense, but pleasurable story of love. She finds a way to be tour guide, mentor, and story-teller all in one, helping us appreciate the city, but also music as she beautifully words phrases which express the emotion involved. I love this story and, although Jason is a marvelously crafted character, Jules is the one who totally won my heart. I recommend this to everyone who loves music and appreciates its intrinsic soothing abilities and enjoys a touching, realistic romance with some complications along the way and definitely a happy ending. Thank you, Shira, for the beautiful, heart-felt story, the Parisian tour, French lessons, and most of all for introducing us to Jason and Jules.

Not much to say about this that hasn’t been said before. I loved it!

From the characters, the setting and the music references – I loved it from start to finish. The writing was very good. I enjoyed how the characters developed throughout the story and how the author managed to give insight into both characters to make me want to cheer them on. Jason was a great characters to get to know, but it was Jules who won my heart. He wore his heart on his sleeve and I just wanted to take him home with me. He was strong yet vulnerable, lovable and sexy. I so enjoyed how he seduced Jason and I admired his loyalty to his friends, brother and his music.

What made this an even more enjoyable read were the music references. I especially enjoyed how Shira Anthony made Paris and the music come alive throughout the story without making me feel overwhelmed.

I liked the romance aspect of the story. It felt believable and not too ‘out-there’. The secondary characters were a great addition too. I especially enjoyed Jason’s sister and something about Sam intrigued me.

I enjoyed this book very much, so much so that I read the whole series during the weekend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I highly suggest you start here now 7 mars 2014

Romance is my thing. I am a sappy, romantic fool and I adore stories where characters are blindsided by love. Please understand that I do not get caught up in the mechanics or intricacies of the process. I have no issues with love at first sight, in fact I find stories where the heroes fall hard and quick to be very entertaining.

What could be a more romantic setting for a love story than Paris? In Blue Notes there are all of the classic elements that make passion come alive in an enchanting backdrop. A great setting, a hero that is filled with angst and heartache needing to be soothed, and a gifted young man who has suffered too many of life’s injustices badly needing a hero. On top of all that we also get music. I think it’s the musical element of this book that is the glue binding it together and making the story unique.

If you have not had a chance to read any of the “Blue Notes” series by the very talented Shira Anthony I highly suggest you start here now. It is a beautiful and heartwarming escape to Paris with a sweet love story and very sexy men.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Common sense loses out to what your heart tells you is right. 24 janvier 2012
Par Bob Lind - Publié sur
When his fiancé Diane cheats on him with another man, Jason Greene tells his law firm he needs a couple of months to put things in perspective, and takes off to Paris, where he spent part of his younger years. His plan to relax and regroup doesn't quite go the way he expected, when he encounters Jules, a young French jazz musician who makes a pass at him. To Jason's surprise, he becomes fascinated with the young man, and they become more and more involved in each others' lives as the weeks pass. They discuss their past experiences and disappointments, while silently wondering whether they will have a future together.

Ms. Anthony explores the more confusing aspects of sexuality in a simple story that should resonate with others who may have faced similar situations, where common sense loses out to what your heart is telling you is right. Sexually explicit, but not excessively so. I give the book four stars out of five.
