Great Story and Characters
Love in B Minor (Broken Dreams Book 3) - Elodie Nowodazkij

Jen almost gets mugged in Paris but a man comes to her rescue who says his name is Clement even though his first name is really Lucas. Jen tells him her name is Laura as she only planned on a one night stand and never seeing him again. Just to forget for a minute everything that has happened to her. Jen’s six year old sister had died from cancer less than a year ago and she had pushed Jen to go to Paris Jen thought the new treatment may be working and did as Mia wanted. Mia died not to long after Jen had went to Paris. Lucas had his heartbroken by his ex girlfriend Olivia  who had used him and lied. Also Luke’s best friend Benji had died of an overdose while trying to get clean.So both Jen and Lucas were still hurting a lot. Lucas was in a band that had also had Benji and Olivia in it. The band had went on a break after Benji had died and were now planning a comeback. Olivia also wanted back in the band. She seems to have learned from her mistakes even if Lucas is moving on.

I absolutely loved this story. Not your regular rock band story but i loved the difference. I love the characters all of them except Olivia naturally. I also love the twists and turns Jen and Lucas go through even of some were painful. I highly recommend.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

MICHELLE'S REVIEW: One Two Three by Elodie Nowodazkij
One, Two, Three - Elodie Nowodazkij

Natalya was on the track to becoming a professional ballerina, when a car crash not only affects her career, but also her family. Her full-time mom has become a full-time alcoholic, and Natalya is pretty much left to her own devices most of the time. Now that her leg's busted, Natalya can't dance... but that doesn't mean she can't live.

This book was being promoted as a Perfect Chemistry meets Save the Last Dance book, and because I do so love the Perfect Chemistry series, I had to request it. Only, it's not as Perfect Chemistry-y as I would like.

I desperately tried to get Natalya, because actually liking her was bordering a bit on the difficult side. Her POV was pretty childlike, so just reading through them and getting to understand things from her standpoint was a bit unsettling. I really had a hard time trying to remind myself that this girl was old enough to get a few unsettling kisses of her own.

The secrets that unfolded weren't much to talk about either. It's feasible, sure, but the way the drama unloaded was anti-climatic, and to me, felt more like a cop-out to the readers who are already on to it from the get-go.

One Two Three is one of those books you pick up all the while knowing how it's going to end. I usually pick up these kinds of novels with a tiny, tiny hope that something new and fresh would grip me, or that I might just -fingers crossed! - be helplessly entertained by the story. 

Unfortunately, One Two Three is only one of the many books that offers nothing new to the already standard, generic formula.

One, Two, Three - Elodie Nowodazkij

I received a copy from Netgalley. 

Not for me. Made it to 26% this morning and still not impressed with the plot.

 As I mentioned in my last update, I couldn't connect with the characters and the story line felt too similar to Perfect Chemistry. Admittedly tag was why this book appealed to me in the first place as after taking a chance on Perfect Chemistry I loved it. So as I'm really not enjoying it much I'm DNFing and moving on. 

I didn't like this one much at all. Ballerina Natalya is recovering from a horrible car crash which injured her and she can't dance anymore. She's hot handling it we'll and her mom is an alcoholic.

I feel for her with the mom, I do, but the broken ballerina thing got whiny and annoying. I thinking was supposed to make her tragic but it didn't work for me. When gets stuck with the guy whose going to be the love interest for a class project my eyes were rolling. 


It's not badly written, the narrative is decent I just don't the story or the characters. Thank you to Netgalley and Patchwork Press for the chance to view the title. Not for me.

Reading progress update: I've read 14%.
One, Two, Three - Elodie Nowodazkij

Not overly impressed with this one so far. Plot is far too similar to Perfect Chemistry. Which is what appealed to me as I loved perfect Chemistry.

 

But this one isn't grabbing my attention, it's a little depressing and I don't really like the characters. The heroine has a feel sorry for my terrible traumatic dramas that are preventing me from flowering complex.  It's supposed to magic her tragic I think but it's whiny and irritating. 

 

I'm only 14% in so far so hopefully it will get better.

One, Two, Three
One, Two, Three - Elodie Nowodazkij One, Two, Three is an easy read-- that is if you know nothing about ballet. There is a certain reverence dancers have toward their art and they would never use ballet terms as allegory. I think the author was trying at add a bit of color, but in my opinion, this was a flawed move.

Still, though, she did a great job portraying the alcoholic mother and the strife Natalia went through. While this is meant also to be a romance, I would view it more as a coming of age story.
