Review: DISSONANCE by Julia Wolf


Dissonance by Julia Wolf is LIVE!! Don’t miss this rock star romance! 





    Everyone loves Alex Murray. I’m not everyone. My history with Alex goes way back. Back to before the fame and groupies and wild tours. Before he was the lead guitarist for Unrequited. We’ve known each other for a decade and have been at odds for a good portion of it. When I need Alex’s help, he jumps in with both feet, volunteering to be my fake boyfriend at an old friend’s out-of-town wedding. Where my ex-boyfriend will be. The man I thought I’d marry one day. I’m going to the wedding for closure, but what I didn’t count on is how my eyes are opened to who Alex Murray really is. Or that the act we’re putting on isn’t an act at all.

This author blew me away with Alex Murray and Yael’s story as she consistently writes beautiful and engaging novels that have interesting storylines that leave me with a smile on my face. The way this author weaves together their story is quite remarkable as I feel like these characters are tangible with their likable personalities and flaws - thus making them easy to identify with.   Dissonance is an exceptional read that I positively devoured and I am already gearing up for a re-read because I loved it that much!

This book contains all of my favorite romance tropes - rockstar romance, frenemies-to-lovers, fake relationship, and brother’s best friend.  I found myself fully immersed in the story right from the first page.  

This is perhaps my favorite book in the Unrequited series as I was able to really connect with both Murray (Alex) and Yael as their story was written in such a way that I felt as thought I was physically present in the book.

I absolutely ADORED Murray.  That man just had me swooning and laughing.  Can I claim his as my book boyfriend?  It truly is impossible not to love Murray’s character as he is goofy, charming, and just scrumptious.  He has such a huge heart, but he also has his faults that he must overcome.  As for Yael, this woman is full of snark when it comes to her interactions with Murray and she is quite the firecracker.  This is a woman that I would love to be friends with and have in my corner.   The author did a spectacular job with character growth as Yael finds herself on the unexpected path to self discovery.

Now let’s talk about these two together.  Oh goodness they certainly knew how to push each other’s buttons.  I would say that their relationship was a bit more along the lines of frenemies rather than complete enemies.  Murray is long time best friends with Mo who is both the lead singer of Unrequited and brother to Yael.  I didn’t realize how involved their history was and the author did a superb job illustrating just how complex their past was; how much this has shaped their interactions with other; and how entertaining it was to witness their tumultuous relationship evolve into something more.  The witty banter and sarcasm as well as Murray’s zany antics made this a fun read that had me laughing several times throughout the book.  The intense chemistry and connection nearly melted my kindle and left me often times fanning myself.

Dissonance is a rockstar romance that has that perfect combination of sweetness, steam, humor, and drama.  The book moves at a great pace, the characters are well developed, and the story is interesting.  It was a treat to see some of the characters from the previous books as I love this series so much!  If you haven’t read the earlier novels, do not fear as this book can be read as a standalone.  If you are looking for the perfect rockstar romance, then be sure to check out Dissonance and this author’s other works.
