Book Review: Lines We Forget by J.E. Warren

Lines We Forget by J.E. Warren
Contemporary, Romance

Love never comes easy, especially to those who aren’t prepared for it…
Twenty-four-year-old musician Charlie Stone has always played the classics. It’s just another day of playing the same old songs until he notices her—Anna Garrett, a beauty with cold-bitten, rosy cheeks and a coffee cup clutched in her hands. 

Five songs later, and she’s still standing there. He vows to steal her heart the only way he knows how.

In the heart of London, chance encounters are few and far between, but a warm melody can bring people together… 

New day, same old disappointments. Anna Garrett believes her luck at finding love has stalled before it’s even started when she’s stood up for a second date with a friend of her housemate.
But when she sees a handsome musician playing his heart out, everything changes. Memories come flooding back. As she listens to the music, Anna realises she must take matters of love and luck into her own hands. 

When opposites attract, sparks fly… 

After a series of wonderful, unconventional dates, feisty Anna and hopeless romantic Charlie declare their love for each other. But their newfound bond is rocked to its core by a New Year’s Eve party gone awry that threatens to throw them off course.

Finally, a bright future appears to be within their grasp. But when Anna’s world fractures and distance comes between them, the real work begins. 

Will their love go on in perfect harmony, or become another old song full of Lines We Forget?
 The many people crossing Charlie's path were not able to draw him out of his bubble, long drawn by the challenges he'd faced in his life. That is, until he meets the eyes of a particular girl whose eyes say a lot more than her words. Giving everything he's got, Charlie tries to catch the attention of the one girl he's certain he has felt more for than anyone in his life.

Hearing a song that has been a significant part in her youth, Anna searches the busy streets of London until he catches the eye of a certain man playing his guitar near the tube. Drawn to his music, and the underlying emotions in each note he strums.

Drawn together by music, Charlie and Anna's path intertwines. With time, they grew closer, growing into their relationship, til the little misunderstandings placed little cracks into it until it gave out. Will they fight for their future together, or simply let it fall apart?

Anna and Charlie's story is very relatable. Love, truly, is full of love, and at the same time, pain. You learn to love the little things and at the same time, some things, when hidden, can create rifts in a relationship. One's partner is not a mind reader. Communication, once again, is the key in order to let the other person know what the other is going through. It is through experiencing hurt that love grows since one gets to learn more about the person they love, doing whatever it takes to avoid hurting the other.

J.E.Warren currently resides in a somewhat sleepy seaside town, and is a British Romance/YA writer who has a long standing love for milky tea, travel, shaggy haired 90’s band Hanson, and small dogs.

She enjoys writing and bringing to life realistic and relatable characters, especially strong, sharp and savvy females who aren’t afraid to speak their mind.

Music has always played a big part in her life – from noisy rock to reggae, folk to pop punk and everything else in between. And is a constant source of inspiration when writing, especially when plotting new ways to steal reader’s hearts, or make them swoon (usually with the help of guitar playing heartthrobs.)

When she’s not writing, J.E likes to curate perfect playlists – of which she has many, and catch up on her favourite shows (again too many), though you can be certain to find Buffy The Vampire Slayer on heavy rotation.
