.• Blurb •.
My name is Melodie and I’m in love with a guy, but he doesn’t know.
He walks by every day, I catch him staring, listening to me sing and play my guitar. I don’t even know his name.
Crazy I know but I can’t stop thinking about Office Guy. That’s what I secretly call him, Office Guy.
We’ve never even spoken to each other, but then one day he walks up to me and…
.•My Review •.
Finding Melodie is a short and a very sweet book.
Melodie is a pink haired Pixie, she loves music and helping “lost causes”, she’s a bartender and a busker, she lives in London with her two gay roommates. In the past she has always picked the wrong guys, she’s been hurt more than once, but she can’t help falling for the wrong ones. Even after that she still believes in love and romance.
Melodie busks in London, in a popular area and as she still by, she makes up her own stories about them and their lives. Some people even have their own names; like Office Guy. She has quite the crush on him and has often fantasised about Office Guy being her dream man. One day he approaches her and asks for help. He asks Melodie to play a certain song whilst he proposes to his girlfriend. Melodie is kinda heartbroken and a little bit jealous, but she puts a smile on her face and agrees to help him.
Office Guy is a real geeky nerd, he’s a bit of a workaholic and the off shoot of that results in heartache but also in an unsuspected friendship and adventure.
Then she watches as things take an unexpected turn and decided that she has to help Office Guy.
This book focuses on Melodie and Office Guy’s friendship and follows their journey.
I’m not going to discuss the plot further for fear of giving too much away.
The characters are incredibly endearing, I couldn’t help but feel like a part of their story. The character show depth and realism, they interact well together.
The book was a pleasure to read, it is packed full of laugh out loud moments, emotion and a little bit of hotness too. During the plan to win back the woman Office Guy loves, each of them discovers more about themselves, their friendship grows, and their feelings change.
Laura’s writing style makes it is very easy to get caught to win the characters’ lives and their feelings. The emotion contained within its pages consumed me as I was reading this. Finding Melodie is a tale of unexpected love, it shows that you can find love, even when you least expect it.
