“L.H. Cosway is masterful! If you don’t pick up another book this week, you have to read STILL LIFE WITH STRINGS. This book captivated me and accomplished what any great book should do. It made me get lost in its pages until I didn’t want it to end.” ~Under the Covers
You are in for a treat! So let me give you a quick glimpse of what you’re in for. Jade Lennon is a girl from the wrong side of town. After her mother’s death she’s been the bread winner for her household, supporting her siblings. In order to do that she works a few jobs. She’s a ticket sales person and bartender at the local theatre, and she stands still in corners for tips. Yes, exactly like a living statue. She’s had bad luck with her previous relationships and has now renounced men and alcohol. Turning her life around and focusing on what’s important.
Then in walks Shane Arthur. A stranger at first, an undeniable obsession later. Shane comes from money, he’s always lived his dream of playing violin. Even was part of a famous quartet. But there’s always been something missing from his apparently perfect life. He’s never gotten to “live”. To feel alive. And who better than Jade to teach him a bit about that.
There are so many things that stand out about this book. The original concept, the flawless and ease of writing, the magic of being transported into the story and feel like you were living it instead of reading it. But as I’ve always experienced with Ms. Cosway’s books, the characters are it for me. They’re complex and with many layers. Layers that you want to get under, whether it’s the hero or heroine. Characters you can’t wait until you know them completely. And also as I always experience reading this author, I wanted to be best friends with Jade and at the same time take her man away from her because Shane Arthur is a stud and I want every piece of him.
I fell in love and in lust with this story. It doesn’t shy away from the sexy factor but it’s there to drive the story forward. L.H. Cosway is masterful! If you don’t pick up another book this week, you have to read STILL LIFE WITH STRINGS. This book captivated me and accomplished what any great book should do. It made me get lost in its pages until I didn’t want it to end. Now I’m just left waiting anxiously for the next time this author gifts us with another story.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
