The Mixtape by Brittainy Cherry - Book Review

Since the death of his twin brother, Oliver’s caught between pleasing his fans and finding himself. Emery finds him first.

Emery has never felt more alone. Raising her daughter is both her pleasure and her pain as she struggles to hold on to her job as a bartender and keep a roof over their heads. With no one to help them—no support system—any unexpected expense or late bill could turn their whole world upside down.

Reeling from the death of his twin brother and bandmate, rock star Oliver Smith is trying to drink his problems away. Apparently he isn’t very good at it; they follow him wherever he goes. Also in hot pursuit are the paparazzi, who catch Oliver at his lowest low.

He could have walked into any bar in California, but he walked into hers. Emery helps Oliver lose the crowd, and they find themselves alone: two people whose paths are marked with loss and pain. However, they hold an unshakable hope for healing. They find solace together, but can their love withstand the world?

The 411

I was looking for something to read while I wait for my kids to come out of school. I looked forward to my 20 minutes a day getting to know Emery and Oliver. My life is hectic so anything that holds my attention is a Godsend.

The writer gives us both main character's point of views which made it even a better read. It was sweet and sexy.

Honestly I must have cried 4 times. Not a new story about new relationships or why they both struggle before they found each other but adorable anyway.

Emery was my favorite character. Hard life but still managed to be a sweet, helpful, caring person. Who quietly tries her best to understand and do well by people including herself.

If you are looking for a sweet story without too much negative space thrown at the two main characters, this is the book for you.
