Treble Maker (Perfect Harmony #1) by Annabeth Albert

On Perfect Harmony, the ambitious competitors heat things up on stage and off…

Cody Rivers is determined to be a rock star, but couch-surfing between bar shows gets old fast. Joining an a cappella group for a new singing competition show could be his last chance at real fame—unless the college boy from the heart of the country messes it up for him. Lucas Norwood is everything gothy, glittery Cody is not—conservative, clean-cut, and virginal. But when a twist in the show forces them together, even the sweetest songs get steamy as the attraction between them lights up the stage. Lucas wants to take it slow, but Cody’s singing a different tune—and this time it maybe a love song… addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Kim Talks TomesTAG

As a fan of the author and a cappella music, I was really looking forward to reading this book. Cody is an adorable, gay, rocker dressing male who wants a big break into the music industry. He goes on a reality TV show for A Cappella groups and meets Lucas, a sweater vest wearing, music loving, and more conservative guy. Lucas is hot for Cody, even though he is a virgin. Cody doesn’t have time for the stuffy Lucas and his beliefs – he just wants his big break and to make it in the musical industry.

I really enjoyed the difference between characters and found each one to be very true to young adults who love music. Cody really won my heart, though, and I found myself wanting him to get his break and happily ever after. I felt as though Lucas was living his life for his parents and his school and not necessarily for himself. However, they work well together and are the yin/yang to each other’s personality.

One issue I had with the story is that it dragged a little too long for me. I found a lot from the middle to the end didn’t hold my attention as well as the rest of the story did and it wasn’t truly necessary to the integrity of the story. Other than that, I enjoyed this work by Ms. Albert and will continue to read more from her.
