Opening Act Reporter Saroj Shah has been in love with bass player and bartender Adam Harper since her first day of college—seven years ago. Forever thinking of her as part-friend and part-little sister, he’s just been too blind, and too clueless, to see it. Until one pivotal moment pulls her into the spotlight.

The moment Saroj steps on stage, Adam sees his friend in a new light. He can’t take his mind off of her and realizes they could make beautiful music together. But seven years is a long time and Saroj is ready to move on. Adam will have to hit the right note if he wants to prove to Saroj he was worth the wait.

MY REVIEW:
If you like stories of your friends that become more this book might fit the bill.  You have two friends who meet seven years earlier on their first day at college.  You see it turns out at 18 they were going to be living in a co-ed dorm.  Surprise!  At least for Saroj Shah and her parents.  Adam Harper already knew about it.  She saw him for the first time in the restroom washing his hands and he walked her back to her room.
     Saroj was from India and Adam from here in the States.  Saroj fell in love with him on that first day Adam found her interesting, introducing himself to her and her parents.  Even offering to look after and protecting her.  Not making points with her parents but okay.  This being part of the problem for the set up with their one sided relationship.
     As he very well did over the next 6 years.  Saroj is 24 years old now and a reporter covering local bands in the music scene.  Adam plays in a band one that Saroj writes about a lot, he’s a bartender, and he saves to continue his extended college courses that he still takes.
     Saroj is tired of waiting for Adam to notice her.  She has started sending out resumes to Chicago and other states to remove her from the pain in her heart of being around Adam.  She loves him and he doesn’t even know she is.  He loves her like a half-sister and half friend.        I enjoy conflict in stories to begin with it makes it interesting but for me after a while I got tired of Saroj and her whining.  At one point Adam says he knew she had a crush on him then he says he didn’t.  And they are such great friends, she’s his constant, she believes in him, can’t live without her, he has a crush on her, and yet he can’t say those 3 little words to her?  But, he can go to bed with her and have wild monkey sex with her?  Really?  Wow!!! But you have to read to find out for yourself what happens but for me the read was good but I was just mad at the story.  So, 3 stars for the story outcome. And, 4 stars for the overall.  Provided by netgalley.com  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
