Maggie is a bestselling queer romance author from the west coast. When she isn’t writing, you’ll almost always find a cup of coffee in her hands.
Emma Harvey is a brilliant and gifted young pianist, accepted into one of the most prestigious music conservatories in the country and prepared to do whatever it takes to accomplish her dreams of playing professionally. With a renowned jazz musician for a father and a world-famous mentor growing up, she is convinced her path is easy. Until her world is suddenly silenced when she loses her hearing.
Juliet Hamilton is a prodigy violinist. First chair for nearly 15 years in the New York Philharmonic and a professor at the conservatory, she is engulfed in her career, with no time for distractions. Especially not a beautiful young graduate student with a spirited personality that challenges her every step.
When Emma and Juliet’s paths cross in the classroom, their connection is undeniable. When their music comes together, it is unstoppable. The bond they begin to form threatens to challenge more than just their opinions of music. Friendships, ethics, and careers are tested as Emma and Juliet find themselves lost in a concerto of fiery passion and heartbreak.
Farah: This book deserves all the attention it’s getting, it is one of the best romance out there, it should be read by anyone who loves love. The playlist generously supplied by Ms.Robbins would be a great company when you read this instead of the background sound from the TV. Thank you Kara, for the info on the Forbidden Melody’s playlist on Spotify. When I read this, I didn’t think of Spotify, YouTube was my search engine. I rated it 4 at first, due to Juliet’s father but every great romance needed a villain so 5 stars allocated by Goodreads and all the stars in the galaxy for the story and the music. Ms.Robbins, thank you for this extraordinary book.
F: This is the beautiful story of Emma, a gifted, deaf young pianist and Juliet a violin prodigy turned NY philharmonic lead and conservatoire professor, who becomes Emma’s teacher. Juliet is completely focussed on her music, to the exclusion of everything else in her life. She is not a people person, or it seems, particularly interested in teaching. Her parents own the conservatory where she works as a professor and her father rules her life completely and without love. Emma, the deaf prodigy, challenges everything in Juliet’s life, and they have a deep connection from when they first meet. Their growing love plays out in the music they make together, and it is a love that you can see (or hear) growing, rather than being told about it. I am not sure that they actually ever talk about their love. It is there. A thing. Something real and tangible that neither of them can live without. But unless Juliet can finally free herself from the dominance of her father and realise that there is more to life than music, they are doomed to a life of misery apart.
