Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.

Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?

Praise

"I’d recommend this sweet love story to anyone who loves classical music, a determined young heroine and a hunky hero." ~ Ms. Romantic Reads

Playing the Maestro was a sweet tug-at-your-heartstrings type of romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Melody’s life revolves around her music. She’s a flutist in an orchestra, but to make ends meet she also gives flute lessons and plays the odd wedding here and there. Nowhere in... ...more

By Ruth February 22, 2014

I have to admit that I would not generally give a simple romance like this a five-star rating. The book is fairly short, and it was fairly predictable. The book is fairly clean. One truly "profane" word, and few more minor words, but no bedroom scenes (thankfully) even though one was implied. The... ...more

By Jonel April 27, 2013

Wow. What a heart-warming and interesting story. I barely put this novel down. To top that off, it was also quite well written and flows fluently from one section to the next.

I appreciated that this novel had a beginning, some very captivating and at times comical drama in the middle, and a defi... ...more

This was a fun read and if you love classical music, this is a story for you. Melody is a flutist that has sworn off musicians. I love how when you swear that you won’t date a type of person that is who gets thrown in your lap. Wolf is the new conductor and Melody is drawn to him. Sometimes even... ...more

Melody Mires is the principle flutist with the Easthampton Civic Symphony. Her love of classical music is in her bones, and it shows in the way she plays. When it comes to dating, she’s drawn to fellow musicians because they “get” the love of music and understand the long hours required to get st... ...more

By Sophia April 25, 2013

I just couldn't resist the opportunity to read a contemporary romance with a backdrop that involved classical musicians and music. Okay, let's add that I couldn't resist reading another story by this particular author even though its in a different genre than I'm used to because I love her storyt... ...more

3.5 Stars

A man and a woman who have both given up on ever finding love, come together and fight their attraction. Why? He's not only her boss, but she's determined never to go out with another musician again. Meanwhile he has been scorned by a selfish ex, who has used him for his influence and le... ...more

Aubrie Dionne plunges readers into the vividly cutthroat world of classical music in Playing the Maestro. For flutist Melody, she's done with dating musicians.

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

This book is incredible! Melody Mires is the principal flutist in the Easthampton Civic Symphony. She has sworn off musicians because of the way they are so egotistical and her disastrous “date” with Blake where he could only talk about his violin showed that much.

I love how the author set the st... ...more

I love books in which the characters have interesting professions, and further, when we see them actually doing their jobs rather than just references to business tycoons taking meetings. In Playing the Maestro both main characters are professional musicians, trying to save a small city orchestra... ...more

If you are looking for a contemporary romance that doesn’t dance to the same tune as many other romances, Playing the Maestro by Aubrie Dionne might resonate well with you! The Easthampton's Civic Symphony is slowly becoming obsolete and in desperate need of new patrons, new interest and new mone... ...more

A sweet book. Playing the Maestro is the kind of cute read that leaves you smiling.

Melody was a great heroine. She was easy to relate to and very likable. I only had one issue with her and it was her tendency to jump to conclusions. It wasn't an overwhelming habit, but it frustrated me a little.... ...more

Two words to describe Playing the Maestro: "Classy and Sophisticated". Not only is this novel a love story, but a love story pertaining to two orchestra musicians: a German maestro named Wolf, and the first flutist in his orchestra, Melody. The fact that this story is wrapped around the symphony... ...more

**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

This is a short, sweet story that for once does not have a sappy ending, but all the same leaves you feeling the ending did not fall short.

The romance is sweet and believable and the tension between the two was good.
