Sweet Memory is the first book in the Painted Daisies series by LJ Evans and it left us completely hooked and invested in this all-girl rock band. Brilliantly written it captured the rock star vibe perfectly with the emotion, angst, lyrics and music. Whilst third person really isn’t a favourite of ours, as we find it harder to connect to the story and the characters, this Author managed to break that barrier and ensured that we were utterly grabbed by Jonas and Paisley’s emotional romance and the thrilling suspense as Paisley

“You make me forget to be anxious. You make me feel like I’m enough.”

“You’re not just enough. You’re everything.”

Nineteen-year-old never-been-kissed keyboardist Paisley Kim has gotten good at hiding things, including the panic attacks she experiences before she steps out on stage with her high-profile band, The Painted Daisies.

To her bandmates, she’s still the baby, the one who needs protecting. But to troubled bad boy, Jonas Riccoli, she’s the hope for a future he never thought possible.

Much more than simply a boy she befriended two years ago, Jonas has become the reason for every lyric she writes. Until their long-awaited reunion and the ensuing sparks are destroyed by her sister's murder.

When the evidence points to Jonas’s past having caught up with him, the heartbroken Paisley can’t forgive him. She’s left with no other choice but to walk away from her first love.

But Jonas refuses to give up without a second chance. So, when Paisley braves her fears to bait a killer, he shows up at her side. He’ll keep her safe even if it means his own destruction.

Author’s Note: Are you ready for this opposite-sides-of-the-track, troubled bad boy, anxiety-ridden musician, first love, new adult, soul-wrenching romantic suspense?
