Lovestruck Summer by Melissa Walker

Goodreads Description - Austin Music Fest
Yay, summer in Austin!
Good food, good times. Fun for everyone!
Okay, living with my sorority-brainwashed cousin, who willingly goes by "Party Penny," is not exactly what I had in mind.
All your favorite bands
But the cute musicians I've met totally make up for it . . . like Sebastian. Swoon.
All ages welcome
So why can't I stop thinking about Penny's friend All-American Russ and his Texas twang??
Saturday & Sunday, from noon to midnight
Don't wait up!

My Review:-

Favourite Quote: '"You look beautiful," says Russ.  And it's the simple sentence that you think will mean nothing, because maybe your mom has said it to you a thousand times, or your best friend says it when your're having insecure moment about your outfit.  But it's not like that - it's completely different when a guy says it.  I didn't know that until this moment, because it's the first time a guy has ever said it to me.  Three words just gave me goose bumps, and I feel like a girly girl for a second.'
Are you looking for a good romantic comedy that will have you laughing out loud, swooning over the male lead and has plenty of awwww isn't that sweet moments? Then look no further because Lovestruck Summer is that and more.
This book is a fun and quick read.  It’s plot is a little bit predictable but completely enjoyable and will make you feel good.  And if you were suffering a reading rut well this book will be the perfect cure.   It is also not all about love but also about not judging people before you know them and being not afraid to try something different.   

What makes this book stand out for me from other romantic comedy is the characters.  Priscilla aka Quinn 'lives her life in her headphones', obsessed with the alternative music scene.  She is a little bit different, smart and extremely stubborn.  Russ, is the all American boy from next door who doesn't mind a bit of country music.  He is a lot of fun, gorgeous and certainly keeps Priscilla on her toes. 
Their romance progresses at that nice natural pace and they connect over the simplest things.  There is a scene in the book where Russ takes Priscilla to a natural spring and they just talk about things they each like, it is so simple but at the same time it is beautiful and you can feel the chemistry. 
Another wonderful element of this book is the music.  Which is indie meets country.  If this book had a theme song it would be "Can't Help Falling in Love". 
Overall, Lovestruck Summer is just what I needed and more than expected.
Rating: 4/5
