Playing the Maestro

Playing the Maestro 
3 of 5 stars false 
 Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.
Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?


****This book was part of a blog tour, I received a copy for my honest review****
Melody is a flutist, she dates other musicians because they understand her love for the music. After having several bad dates she decides to swear them of, until she sees Wolf. Wolf is the new conductor who came to America after a relationship went sour, he is sexy demanding and comes across a a jerk. The two of them have to fight their attraction to each other or their careers will be ruined. Melody is a perfectionist, she works hard and does what she does because she loves it. Wolf is the same way, as we get to know him we see that his stand offish attitude is a front to keep things professional and put distance between himself and the musicians. This was a quick light read, the two main characters romance was sweet and heartwarming. I am not into classical music, but it was nice to get a glimpse into that world and all the hard work that goes into playing it. Playing the Maestro was a nice lazy day read, not a lot of twists and turns easy to follow. If your looking for a good fast read with nice main characters, this would be the book to read.
