SYNOPSIS

They say the truth will set you free. I can’t argue with that. But what if the truth comes pouring out of you and it won’t stop? I play for myself. Music is not only my passion, but those black and white keys are my lifeline. 

One night was all it took for me to hit rock bottom. I didn’t lose everything, I still had my tunes, but I never thought living my dream would continue to kick those old wounds wide open again. 

Pain can haunt you for years; memories can hold you back and repeatedly break your heart. Music saved me, but I later realized… 

MY MUSIC HAD BEEN SAVING OTHERS TOO

‘My music was me. Everything about my life was in my music. My blood, guts and sweat were in my music. My heart and soul had purged every ounce of life experience that I had for my music.’

We LOVED this story! It’s been way too long between Hadley Quinn books and Ivory reminded us of why we love her stories; her words elicit a depth of emotion which embraces us with every turn of the page and Jude and Ree…well, they were IT for us!

It’s apparent when you read a Hadley Quinn story that she writes from the heart and clear to see that for her it’s all about the story, the characters and her readers. There is nothing more rewarding for a passionate reader than to experience the energy, joy, realness and pure unadulterated love an author pours into her story and we certainly felt that AND more with Ivory.

“Thank you.”
“For what?”
“For believing in me.”

Music and lyrics are a powerful thing.  Who hasn’t been touched by a song, heard lyrics we swore were written with us in mind, and we’ve all have that moment when a song instantly transports us back in time igniting memories whether they be joyous or sad because music is a powerful force and for two people, like us, who are intrinsically music lovers, this book hit incredibly close to home. We believed, felt and loved every single mesmerizing word this talented author penned. Hadley Quinn’s insight into the music industry came across so vivid and so real we couldn’t help but be swept along with her provocative words

“When you’re happy you enjoy the music; when you’re struggling…you understand the lyrics.”

We fell head over heels for Jude and Ree and their love story is one that was so moving, so romantic and so sincere, our hearts were practically overflowing. Jude Collins was such a soulful, insightful and beautiful man. We know we always talk about our alpha guys, but ladies, we’ve glimpsed into the heart of this romantic, sincere man and we have to say…..we were captivated! Jude Collins….mate, you stole our hearts!

“You make my heart keep beating, Jude Collins.”

Ree Miller was a beautiful woman inside out. Harrowing events marred a time in her life which brought her to a dangerous place. Sometimes only the gift of music is able to reach far enough inside a person in order to be brought back to what is real, what is true and what is life affirming.

 “We are proof that your music has been far more than just an outlet for yourself.”

Hadley Quinn took her time to deliver a powerfully poignant story of a man finding his way back, trying to recapture his love for music after traumatic events rocked his world. Jude’s story felt incredibly real, the characters so true to life it was as though we knew them personally.

“You saved them through your words.”

The story flowed beautifully, never felt rushed and was delivered with emotion and heartfelt honesty. This wasn’t a sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll telling, but more a melodic and sweet story and one thing’s for sure, Ivory was all about the story, with the intimate scenes enhancing the romance, not overtaking it. Sometimes less is more and in this case the physical scenes didn’t come across as mechanical rather Hadley Quinn delivered them with sheer, unbridled deep felt emotion and gosh didn’t our hearts feel it! Yep, we really did LOVE this one!

‘Ladies and gentlemen….your piano man has arrived…..’
