I love a good music romance novel, as you know. However, I’m not a fan of EDM so while I was interested in this novel’s plot, I wondered if I would be able to connect to the musical elements.

I did.

In Tune follows rising EDM DJ Luke and music manager Leona aka Leo. Luke needs a new manager after his old one screwed him over; temporarily wrecking his personal and professional life. Leona has had a rough last year after a less than amicable relationship. She needs to prove to herself and becoming Luke’s manager provides the perfect opportunity, even if he initially seems intent on making it complicated.

Leona and Luke were like oil and vinegar when they first met. There was an attraction there from the beginning, but they were both determined not to reveal them.

Luke may have been a bit of a pain in the ass when they first met but he turned out to be very attentive and loving. He appreciated Leo’s talent and was willing to be with her every step of the way, especially as parts of her past resurfaced. Leo wanted to pull back but Luke wasn’t going to let her off that easily.

Leo was a badass. She was amazing at her job and knew what she was doing, and was intent on crushing every tour goal they had. She didn’t want a repeat of her past and have the media crush and question what she was capable of. That meant that even though she was obviously in love with Luke, she wanted to keep things under wraps and had to make sure Luke understood that.

Luke and Leona had undeniable chemistry. They practically sizzled when they were together and that was no more evident than the week in San Francisco.

Second chances, trust issues and proving yourself are themes in In Tune. There were many layers to this workplace romance and definitely more than met the eye with both characters.

Music brought Leo and Luke together. It created a bond, attached strings to their relationship and offered them the promise of forever.
