April Quinn is thrilled to be her sister's maid of honor, until the wedding coordinator quits and the responsibilities get dumped on her. It's April's worst nightmare-especially since her sister has more objections and opinions than a lawyer presenting a high-profile court case. When the wedding singer walks out at the last-minute, her sister hires a replacement. When April finds out who the replacement is, she's ready to call it quits as well. Because there's only one person in April's past that she never wanted to see again, and her sister just handed him a front row seat to the wedding. Jack Vaughn finally has the career he's always wanted. After playing in bars and singing in weddings as a struggling musician for half a decade, he's just released his second album and sales are skyrocketing. But while visiting his parent's Nashville home the weekend before his first headline tour, he runs into an old friend. When she asks him for a last-minute favor, he can't bring himself to say no. Even though saying yes means he has to come face to face with April Quinn-the girl who hasn't spoken to him in years...And rightly so, since he stole something from her that he'll never be able to repay.

Theyve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.
April knows her job as maid of honor is to fulfill her sisters every wishwhatever the bride wants, she will have. Unless it involves Jack Vaughn.
April Quinn loves her sister and wants to make sure the week of her wedding is the happiest of her life, even if it means putting up with Kristins every crazy whim. But when Kristin hires Jack Vaughn as the wedding singer, all sisterly devotion flies out the window. No way will she work with Jack after what he stole from her.
Jack Vaughn is supposed be beyond these small gigs. After all, hes on the cusp of launching his first headlining tour. But accepting the job was a spur-of-the-moment decision, and it will mean seeing April again. Surely she has forgiven him for that one lapse of judgment so long agothe decision that shot him to stardom and left her behind, writing songs and waiting tables.
As April and Jack keep appearances for the sake of Kristens happiness, they rediscover a chemistry that never quite fizzled out. But will they be able to rewrite two solos into a timeless duet?
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Cute story, but not a favorite.April 15, 2015Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This novella was not one of my favorites. There are things I liked and things I didnt.
What I liked:
The story has a great premise. Jack and Amy knew each other years ago and Jack made a very selfish decision that helped him become a celebrity, yet really hurt Amy. Jack has regretted his actions and I did like seeing him work to try to rectify things.
The writing flowed well for me. I did not get bogged down or bored in the story. I did keep wanting to know what would happen next.
There was good attraction between the two characters and the hurt that Jack caused is very palpable and can really be felt as the reader connects with Amy in her thoughts and actions.
There is some fun humor in this book. The bridezilla sister got annoying, as she should, and offered another way for the reader to sympathize with all April was going through.
What I didnt like:
This is part of an inspirational fiction line and I really did not get any feeling of this being an inspirational story. It is clean, albeit with some very heated looks and thoughts. But, nothing too far. I have since read that this author is considered edgy, and since I dont mind edgy, I can see that it fits her style.
I didnt truly connect with either character. I felt that both of them were still very immature by the end of the story. I thought that Jack still was very much the spoiled celebrity and left the story not feeling very secure in the idea of their relationship lasting.
It did end abruptly. Its a novella and that does sometimes happen with those.
All in all, it was a cute story and I will probably try another full length book by this author some day to see how I feel about her characters when they have a bit more time to tell their story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fun New Adult RomanceApril 10, 2015IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4April Quinns sister is getting married, and when the wedding coordinator quits with a week to go, she ropes April in to finish the job. What Bridezilla hasnt told April is that the wedding singer is none other than country music star Jack Vaughan, the guy who gained national fame with Aprils lyrics. Aprils unacknowledged lyrics. April hasnt forgiven him but the sparks flying between them are more than just old hurts.
Jack is sorry for what he did, but he has no idea how to fix the problem until Aprils sister asks him to be her wedding singer. He agrees, as a personal favour to April. Not that she seems to appreciate the gesture. And shes as cute as ever maybe the wedding will give him the opportunity to make things right.
Apart from Jack, Aprils other problem is that her family dont appreciate her and dont respect her career choices, calling her tunes and lyrics jingles (I probably wouldnt be happy either if April was my daughter. But shes only twenty-two. Shes got time to grow up).
This pretty much encapsulates my problem with April: shes earnest and hardworking, but shes young and more nave than I would have expected, given her history with Jack and the fact she works in a bar surrounded by musicians and people who want to be musicians. Shes still writing lyrics on receipt backs: three years, and shes never thought to buy a pad of paper to carry around? Or even to write on the back of her bar order pad?
The writing was good, the cover gorgeous, the story fun (if a bit over-the-top), and while I enjoyed it, I didnt love it. April was lacking in maturity, and the whole wedding scenario was completely over-the-top, which made In Tune with Love seem more young adult than real adult.
Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
i blog 4 books3 Stars Out Of 53.5 starsApril 6, 2015i blog 4 booksQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I'm a big fan of Amy Matayo, so I was super excited to find out that she was invited to be part of this year's A Year of Weddings series! The story itself is interesting and unique. I mean, the thought of someone making a huge career for himself by stealing another person'sand a friend's no less!lyrics had me intrigued. Throw in reconnecting with said friend and a bridezilla and I'm totally interested. All of the drama around the wedding totally stressed me out, but it made for a good story.
I think the biggest challenge for me is the length of the story. Amy writes what many consider to be "edgier" stories, so they're full of snark and sarcasm and characters that aren't quite as easy to love as what you might normally find in a romance story. While this plays out nicely in a full-length story where readers have a chance to get to know the characters over a longer period of time and more fully understand their history (and therefore their snark), for me it didn't come off quite as well in such a short novella. I really felt like this was the beginning of a story that I wanted to read a lot more of. (Amy, if you happen to be reading this and ever decide to go back and revisit April and Jack, I'll definitely read that story!)
I'm thoroughly happy to have read In Tune With Love, but I want more! If you've read anything by Amy before, you'll definitely enjoy this story. And if you haven't, well, give it a shot. I'm sure glad I did! [3.5 stars]
