Always. That's approximately how long I'll be thinking about Chloe and Adam and their normal-yet-lyrical love story. Told in reverse chronological order, The Ballad is aptly named—though (thankfully) told in prose and not stanza. (I've read Shakespeare; I don't need to read it again.) I smiled, I cried, I laughed, I wanted to be Chloe, and I wanted to catch Adam's sneaky smiles meant just for me. The Ballad is lovely and musical in its telling of a normal, everyday love story, both of Chloe and Adam's story as well as the city of Brooklyn. Though it is the start of a series, it can be read/enjoyed/loved as a standalone. A must-read! [August 2013]

Boy loves girl, always. Girl loves boy.
Life happens.
Boy needs girl. Girls wants boy. Boy meets girl.

Chloe LeGrange is a Canadian-born singer/songwriter guided by her internal rhythm and raw emotions. Her impulsive behavior makes her a natural performer, but deep down, she craves self-control. Enter the elusive Adam Ford, a successful attorney, emotionally guarded and extremely sexy. His calm composure and innate perception are exactly what Chloe needs, but she soon learns that his self-discipline is simply a protective armor.

The Ballad is written in the unique narrative style of Chloe’s sentimental approach to life, love and all things in between, with unpredictable crescendos and intimate verses. How does love start? When does love end? Or maybe it’s the middle of the story that really counts, the part when life happens, either propelling the relationship into a beautiful romance or dissolving into a predictable wasteland of misconceptions. Join Chloe and Adam on their journey through the picturesque streets of Brooklyn, so passionate and intense that a simple love story becomes a romantic ballad.
