Songs Unfinished is about Jaymi and Shawn – two musicians who were trying to make it out in LA – but ended up back in New England. Jaymi comes home because her mother is dying and she went through a bad breakup after her ex girlfriend cheated on her. Shawn was having sex with whomever she could just to have a place to sleep – but ends up being attacked by a guy who wants to give her a recording contract – in exchange for sex.
Once Shawn gets to New England she looks up Jaymi and asks if she can stay at her place. Jaymi agrees and the two end up realizing they have feelings for each other. Like any romance novel there are a bunch of ups and downs with their relationship – people trying to break them up – revelations and accusations of lying, etc.
In the end, things seemed to work out for them in the way I had hoped – although the path taken to get to that point wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for.
I received a free ARC e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

Seeking a fresh start, she heads home to New Hampshire and tracks down her old friend, Jaymi.
Their passion for music blossoms into much more than either woman was expecting. Can Jaymi find it in her heart to trust again, or will Shawn’s past mistakes destroy any chance of a future together?
