Review: Play On - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

Nora O’Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret.

Until Aidan Lennox entered her life.

Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow in each other they found the light they were looking for, the laughter and the passion—the strength to play on despite their past losses.

But when life dealt Aidan another unlucky hand, instead of reaching for her he disappeared. The agonizing loss of him inspired something within Nora. It fired her spirit— the anger and hurt pushing her forward to take control and reach for her dreams.

Finally pursuing a career on stage while she put herself through college, everything is how Nora wants it. She’s avoiding heartbreak and concentrating on her goals.

Sounds easy but it’s not. Because Aidan is back. And for some reason he hates Nora.

He’s determined to be at war with her.

And she has absolutely no idea why.

Review: Play On

Two people find love unexpectedly, but struggle to hold onto it as they each deal with the ghosts from their pasts. With a story about life after loss, Samantha Young delivers an evocative romance years in the making.

We meet Nora O’Brien as a teenager living in small-town Indiana, trapped in a difficult situation that would never allow her to pursue her dreams. But then her ticket out of that life came in the form of a boy she barely knew… a boy with a Scottish accent whose whispered promises seemed too good to pass up.

Before too long, Nora’s living the same kind of life in Scotland, a different kind of prison from which she couldn’t break free. But once again, fate dealt her a blow, leaving her alone, listless and ravaged by compounded guilt and grief.

Until Aidan Lennox.

Aidan was sexy, wealthy, worldly—a talented music producer who seemed to have the world at his feet. Somehow, they found their way to each other… an unlikely connection that fit. With Aidan, Nora was starting to come alive, she was starting to hope, daring to dream again.

And again, fate played its ugly hand when Aidan disappeared, leaving her alone and heartbroken.

Nora’s life had never been easy, but after the latest blow, she picked herself up and started living how she wanted, giving none access to her heart.

More than a year later, content with a blossoming on-stage career, Norah’s carefully constructed life begins to fracture when Aidan comes back with hate behind his glare. Nothing makes sense and there’s no way she’s putting herself in the same situation again.

But of course, fate has other plans.

With PLAY ON, Samantha Young took us on a journey. Nora and Aidan’s story is a big one with many a twist. It’s one shaped by loss and circumstance, grief and anger, forgiveness and hope. And for as heart-breaking as the story gets, Young takes us full circle with an ending entirely restorative and fulfilling, making the HEA’s impact all the better. Loved every moment of this book.
