It’s never the same old song…
Reporter Saroj Shah has been in love with bass player and bartender Adam Harper since her first day of college—seven years ago. Forever thinking of her as part-friend and part-little sister, he’s just been too blind, and too clueless, to see it. Until one pivotal moment pulls her into the spotlight.
The moment Saroj steps on stage, Adam sees his friend in a new light. He can’t take his mind off of her and realizes they could make beautiful music together. But seven years is a long time and Saroj is ready to move on. Adam will have to hit the right note if he wants to prove to Saroj he was worth the wait.
Sort of repetitive, the OTT was too much and the euphemisms were exaggerated, but I read it in a second. It totally caught me. ...more
This was good. Very, very good. As a bonus I think that Suleikha should write me a future-take of Adam and Saroj. Not too far in the future, but at a certain pivotal momentous occasion. ...more
I heart this friends to lovers romance. It's got some really lovely moments in it. I connected with Saroj, felt right with her as she took a chance just to DO something and feel good for once, as she struggled to believe things might finally go her way, as she kept reminding herself to be realist... ...more

Seven years is a long time to love someone without them returning your love by word or deed, or them acknowledging that you are more than just a friend. I don't know anyone who'd wait that long.
Saroj did, but the waiting period is over when this story begins. I can't say I blame her. Adam's kind... ...more
Opening Act by Suleikha Snyder breaks all the molds and looks fantastic doing it. It's definitely in the New Adult genre, but doesn't rely on all the "difficult subjects".

This was a quick read that had lots of promise, but for some reason I just couldn't fully connect with the characters. I loved the premise of the book – unrequited love/friends to lovers, but I think it just took me too long to make any sort of connection to the story.

This book kept me thinking about it long after I was finished reading it. I loved the was that Suleikha made this a very real situation, and it made me relate to the characters all the better.

What a short fun read, I loved how Saroj fought back and stood up for herself, "I've been waiting," she said before she could think of it. "And it's been too damn long. Johnny Ray was up for a little playing, so I went with it. That's it. It's done. What more is there to say?" I mean you could te... ...more
This was an emotionally heart tugging novella to read. It was simple, easy story to get into. There were several parts where my heart would sink because I could totally relate to Saroj.

Well wri... ...more
