Jessica Long has the voice of an angel. But Jesse’s cold beauty masks a brutal past filled with privation and cruelty. As the talented soprano approaches her final year at New England Conservatory, she is faced with a choice: stay with her striking young lover or accept the offer of a successful Broadway producer. She chooses the latter only to discover that fame can exact a cruel price. After years of yearning, the lovers meet again – at Jesse’s ragged homestead on the Maine Coast.
Matt will reveal the benefactor who’s followed and protected Jesse as the lovers face a confrontation with the jealous pursuer who’s tried to destroy her. One final choice awaits that may cost Jesse both Matt and her life. The Broadway impresario, a mysterious crime lord, and Matt’s stunning literary agent head a cast of absorbing secondary characters. Filled with unexpected plot twists, Solo is a classic, leading the reader over a bittersweet tapestry spanning fifteen years.

                     My Thoughts 

Now, if your looking for a great romance book, this is for you. Jessie and Jesse's romance was so real. Let's take a moment to say that's the cover reminded me so much of "Teen Wolf" when Alison died in Scott's arm. I cannot even tell you what a great read this was. As you read it did start off a little slow. I was losing hope on whether or not I would like the book but in my mind I had to finishing reading. Boy I was glad that I did because if I gave up on this book I would have missed out a great story.  

The characters did come alive to me but on the other hand they annoyed me a bit. At times I felt that they were not giving much emotion to make the book come alive. Summons has a great writing style by the way he describes everything. It was clear to me what he was mentioning or talking about. This book that I can describe in two words were viciously aggressive. It just make you want so more you crave the juicy details. Not only was this book flit with romance but the suspense behind it. Just like the thunder the lighting will indeed strike you. Summons really outdid himself by writing this book.
