It’s harder to get over someone who was never really yours.

say rock stars get all the girls. But Miki knows that’s not always
true. He, for one, though the guitarist of popular indie band Trainman,
just can’t seem to get the girl. It’s kind of his fault, really. No one
told him to fall in love with Jill. No one told him to stand still and
watch as she moved on from a terrible breakup into the arms of another
guy—a Japanese celebrity with the face of an angel and the body of a

So when someone else comes along, someone who finds him
cute, smart, and funny (sometimes in the haha sort of way), will Miki
finally move on? Or will he continue to pine for Jill? 

It is an honor to be part of this book tour and be able to review this book. Even though this could be read as a stand alone, I still decided to read the first book in the series which is Songs of Our Breakup to further understand the whole story, when and where everything started. First, I have to say I enjoyed reading the book, it got me hooked. I like how this was written, simple story, very straight forward but it will put you on the verge of reading, like you don’t even want to stop because… you want to know what will be Miki’s fate.

The characters mainly Jill, Shinta, Miki and Kim are all lovely but this book focused on Miki. His story of getting over someone who he secretly loved for so long is really cute but it caused heart aches on his side too seeing the girl with someone else. Jill is his best friend and the girl who he want to spend his life with. Kim is always the cool guy or he’s trying his best to make everything fine even if it doesn’t? (please let there be a Kim side story…) He’s awesome in his own way, being so composed and a good leader. Shinta (I badly want to know more about this guy) he’s a celebrity, not a band member but an actor and a model. He’s basically Jill’s currently boyfriend after Kim and her broke up. Jill is just a simple woman, vocalist of the band Trainman who works with Miki and Kim. She’s the lucky one! (LOL). These characters made the book really interesting. I loooooveeee them. *heart heart*

“It’s harder to get over someone who was never really yours. You see that person smiling and it breaks your heart two-fold.”

I’m actually controlling myself to reveal what’s in this book. It is really hard for me, it feels like everything that I will type in here is a ‘spoiler’. *controls self* Since this book is Miki’s story, his getting-over-Jill wasn’t easy. It took him a long time to realize things, but this one girl never left his side. A one sided type of love that turned in to something else after sometime. Things between the two of them wasn’t easy, but time changes things.

I suggest the readers should really read the book one first before reading this second book why? because you’ll enjoy both of the books! what else? LOL, well seriously, just to further understand the story of all the characters, you have to start reading the first book. Readers won’t regret investing the time and money (because you’ll buy the book right?!) on this book. It is really worth a try. It is the type of book that you could finish in a day. Did I mention it’s a simple story? Love square? I think… three boys love a single woman. I also enjoy the songs in this book! It was lovely.. I hope there’s a sample song please… just kidding (but still wishing lol). Songs to Get Over You is a beautiful, one of a kind and enthralling book!

My Ratings

Hi! I’m a writer of contemporary Young Adult and New Adult romance. These days I’m writing paranormal/fantasy too, and it’s a fun exercise. I’m often inspired by daydreams, celebrity crushes, a childhood fascination of Japanese drama and manga, and an incessant itch to travel.
