“Sometimes, reality is better than a dream”
Eli dreams about being a US Coast Guard. Ava dreams of being a country music star.
These dreams send them careening in different directions and their summer love story is left as a wish that never came true.
Four years later, Eli’s Coast Guard career is threatened and Ava’s dreams are shadowed by her past, just as fate brings them together once more in New York City.
As their lives start to crumble, they find the possibility of a second chance in each other. If they’ll only listen to what their souls are whispering and realize that, sometimes, the best dream to come true is simply to have loved.
Every time I listen to Luke Bryan’s “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” I will think of Eli and Ava. Their story was filled with dreams, decisions, hope and of course love. They experience so much in a short time only to part ways, but then find themselves in each other’s lives once more four years later. This book had me in tears, made me laugh, made me urge Ava and Eli on to doing what their heart was telling them to do and it made me fall in love with country music. I loved reading this book from the beginning until the last page. LJ Evans outdid herself with this book. I especially loved the lyrics of a song at the beginning of every chapter and the playlist available on Spotify. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good love story, because this was really a good love story.
