Not Another Love Song by Olivia Wildenstein
Angie has always dreamed of being a singer and songwriter. So when she gets the opportunity to enter her idol, Mona Stones’s songwriting competition, she jumps at the chance. But her pragmatic mother doesn’t approve of her plan, and actively tries to prevent her from entering. When new student Ten comes into Angie’s life, his disapproval of all things music infuriates Angie, but at the same time he intrigues her. But what if she can’t have both Ten and her dream?
Not Another Love Song is told entirely in the first-person from Angie’s perspective. I really liked Angie and rooted for her throughout the entire book. My favorite part of this book was the relationship between Angie and Ten’s little sister Nev, who is also a singer. Nev is struggling to make friends and Angie takes her under her wing, forming the sweetest friendship. In my opinion it should have been the main plot of the story, not that the romance was bad, it just wasn’t as enjoyable to read as the sections with Nev and Angie.
Fans of Erin Hahn’s You’d Be Mine, and the TV series Nashville would enjoy Not Another Love Song. It’s an incredibly light read with an enjoyable storyline.
