What do you do when you fall in love with your best friend’s boyfriend? 

That is the question that twenty-six year-old Justine Sterling has been asking herself ever since the day she met David Whitman, her best friend Renee’s boyfriend. Justine is determined to ignore her growing feelings for the irresistibly charming David, until one night, when she finds herself in the bed of the one person she should stay away from.

When Justine and David’s affair ends in heartbreak, Justine is forced to repair the damaged friendship with her best friend. In doing so, she learns that right and wrong decisions aren’t always black and white, and sometimes you have to follow your heart to see where it leads.

This is a story on forgiveness, finding self and gaining some independence. I really loved this book, I loved that it was more focused on Justine trying to find herself rather then worrying about romance. I loved watching over time how she dealt with conflicts. I loved that there was the back and forth on her and David and how she is now. I thought it was interesting getting that aspect of how it was going on for her in the past. Overall I really loved this book and recommend you lovely readers to check it out.

Renee Evans has a knack for trouble. After walking in on her best friend and boyfriend in bed together, twenty-five year-old Renee flees sunny Los Angeles and her dream job as a music journalist and returns to her hometown of Boston – only to meet Dylan Cavallari, the mysterious, aspiring musician who lives in her apartment building. Dylan’s piercing gaze and womanizing demeanor make him exactly the type of guy that Renee should steer clear of – which is most likely the reason she falls for him. But when Renee’s troublesome ex comes back and threatens to drive her and Dylan apart, Renee is forced to face her past and save her relationship with Dylan before it's too late.

Sound Bites dramatizes what happens when Renee finds herself caught between a painful past and an uncertain future. Happiness turns out to be within her grasp, but it all depends on whether she can trust herself enough to make the right decisions. Sound Bites is a novel about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, and the power of music to help you find your way.

I enjoyed this book. I loved  how supportive Renee was when she saw the talent that Dylan had she made sure he got his talent out there. There was just enough drama, misunderstandings and romance the keep the readers hooked. I can't wait to see what happend next with Justine's POV.
