    3.5 stars-A new, enjoyable take on a popular trope

    The Love Song of Sawyer Bell is the first in a new musician series, Tour Dates. While I don’t read too many f/f books, Miss Gale is one of those authors for me that I’ll try anything she writes. Yet again, her writing had a smooth, causal tone I found engaging. The dialogue was lively and enhanced the characters, including a good amount of banter. And of course, there’s a nice dose of humor that had me smiling and giggling throughout the book. The basic premise of The Love Song of Sawyer Bell was not entirely new, a new band member- Sawyer- trying to find her place in an established band. Happily, there were plenty of unique attributes that set it apart from the typical rock band/famous musician romance. First and foremost, Miss Gale gives includes a good amount of the behind the scenes musical aspects of these characters, how they write and compose, and the struggles those elements present. I loved that it wasn’t just about the image or promise of “making it”, but about their love for music. The book follows the still relatively small band as they tour the country in a van. While the band certainly has a following, I liked that keeping it a lesser known band provided more opportunities for different conflicts to arise. I also liked that the main characters had a bit of a shared history, attending the same high school, but Sawyer and Vix still had fairly different personalities and major differences in their life experiences. This gave them common ground beyond the music, but created a good amount of depth with their individual characters as well as within their relationship. I really enjoyed seeing Sawyer develop and find herself over the course of the book, both sexually and as a musician. Vix and Sawyer together were equal parts fun and sexy, and I appreciated that their emotional chemistry was as evident as their physical chemistry. My only sore spot in the book was the latter half sort of fizzled for me. Whereas I found the first part of the book difficult to put down, the plot and conflicts lost a bit of steam toward the end. Then the major climax and resolution came as a bit of a blindside. Though it certainly made sense given the band’s history, it felt less flushed out and thoughtful than the rest of the book. Additionally, I felt Vix’s personal growth was minimized- at least when compared to Sawyer’s- and I have to admit I was a bit let down. Overall, I was happy with the final outcome though, so I think it was just a matter of the wrap up not delivering the same level of magnetism the build-up had for me. However, I did really enjoy the characters and secondary characters introduced along the way and I absolutely enjoyed Miss Gale’s writing style and humor, so I’ll certainly be reading more from this series. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
