Take me to Ireland.
Still Life with Strings - L.H. Cosway

Still Life with Strings is an artistic, sensual, heartwarming story of the strings of life pulling us together.

Every single page was its own beautiful world.

I think this is the first book I’ve read that has a street performing heroine. It was neat, and as I found out why she does it, it became lovely.

I can’t say that I hated anything, it fully held my attention while I was reading, and also while I wasn’t. I found myself creating my own little musical world on the way to work to the sounds of the Arctic Monkeys. The time between readings, just an intermission of my life revolving around this book.

The Sharpie scene! So intimate, really interesting.

Jade’s musically inclined imagination. “The boat containing all our souls moves with the music, calm waves crashing against its sturdy sides.” 

Dublin! Take me to Ireland right now.

Oh, and it was sexy as fuck.

Can someone FedEx me a Shane, please? Thanks.

Shane was such a broken hero. He made my heart ache, and I can’t say I didn’t grin like a fool every time he was genuinely happy.

Jade’s story was surprising, and I was so not prepared for what was revealed. I guess that about sums up this book. It is surprising, always.

“I’ve thought it a very appropriate description to compare the feeling to being “in lust” with a person to having butterflies in your stomach. But at the same time it irks me, because they always fail to mention how those butterflies have wings made of steel, cutting through your insides so that all you can feel is burning.” YES. OMG, FUCKING YES. No truer words.

The musical aspect is what drew me in. I love music, and to have L.H. Cosway express the exact feelings I have was a wonderful experience. The power it has to transport you to another world. Perfect.

I laughed and I cried. This book had everything I wanted, and I will certainly come back to Jade and Shane now and again.

Still Life with Strings
Still Life with Strings - L.H. Cosway Shane is a cute, sweet musician who's hurting inside. He's been raised as priviledged but he isn't cocky or arrogant and I was grateful for that. He could be shy but when it comes to sex, he can be sexy and in control. I really liked him.

Jade is from an urban area and she learnt from past experiences to be tough for her family. She's the older sister and has to take care of her siblings. Her life can be complicated at times and soon, Shane asks her to show him how to live but the last thing she thinks she needs is a relationship.

Their lifes entertwined in more ways than one. They both have a difficult past, but they'll move on together.

This story was beautiful and full of surprises. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It was sweet, lovely but also sad at times. I finished reading with a smile and a HEA: perfect.

Still Life with Strings
Still Life with Strings - L.H. Cosway Fue apenas un poco mejor que [b:The Nature of Cruelty|17873919|The Nature of Cruelty|L.H. Cosway|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1369134073s/17873919.jpg|25025709] pero aun así , muy flojo.

Me gusto la historia de la protagonista con su familia pero el resto , es decir , el romance y los dramas del muchachito , fueron demasiado irreales , sin conflicto real y con un desenlace (si es que puede llamarselo así ya que la complicación casi brilla por su ausencia) que se da a las apuradas en las últimas paginas.

Sin embargo , la autora si tiene potencial y todavía le tengo fe . Solo necesita esforzarse un poco mas en los conflictos . Sabe construir la tensión pero nunca la resuelve .

Still Life with Strings
Still Life with Strings - L.H. Cosway This is the first book I've read from this author and I'm sure it won't be the last!

Still Life with Strings is a beautifully written romance and it has the most HONEST characters I've ever read about. It was amazing that there wasn't any unnecessary drama, and the story felt real.

I loved Jade and how strong she was, and of course I loved Shane and his vulnerable side. Sometimes though I found the chemistry between them a little bit lacking, that's why the 4 stars.

Overall it was a great read! I can recommend it to everyone!
