To find out about Melissa Pearl's young adult series, The Fugitive, see my blog post on I Know Lucy and my blog post on Set Me Free.

Singing in the shower takes on a whole new meaning in Melissa Pearl's first New Adult Contemporary Romance.
Ella Simmons does not want to move across the country. But she is, because her boyfriend has persuaded her to join him at UChicago to finish out her college education. Never able to tell him no, she hops on a plane and makes the trek from LA expecting to adjust to life like she's often forced to, but things are not that simple when she hears a luscious voice singing over her shower wall. His deep, sexy tenor makes her weak in the knees, spreading fire through her limbs and making her question everything about her life and relationship.
Can one voice really have that much of an impact?
Cole Reynolds is on his way out. In his final year at UChicago, the only thing he wants to do is finish school and get on with his life. But the sweet voice that interrupts his morning shower turns his world upside down. Compelled to find his shower songbird, he begins a search across campus. The only thing to distract him from this goal is his roommate's gorgeous girlfriend who's just arrived from LA - Ella Simmons.
Relationships are put to the ultimate test as future dreams are questioned and friendships are thrown on the line for love.

Book Trailer

I stood in the shower, clutching the towel to my chest. I'd turned the spray off the second he asked to meet me outside and then I'd frozen. Meet him? I couldn't do that.
It didn't matter that his voice was the sexiest thing I'd ever heard. Actually it totally mattered! That's exactly why I couldn't meet him outside. I had a boyfriend!
My body was still zinging from the sound of his voice floating over the shower wall. It was luscious and I wanted to know where that sound came from ... probably a broad chest. His voice was rich and deep. I imagined the way his lips moved as they sang the lyrics and couldn't help wondering what they felt like ... tasted like. Heat shot through my core, settling between my legs.
Squeezing my eyes shut, I lightly tapped my head against the tiles. This was ridiculous.
I. Had. A. Boyfriend.
