She'll have to play her boss to come out on a high note...

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?


It only took me 84 years to finally read Playing the Maestro and I’m so glad that I did! It’s super sweet. Melody is a flutist in a struggling orchestra, and she is done with dating musicians! At least until the new conductor, Wolfgang, strolls in. He’s super hot, but he’s also quite stuffy at first glace. He’s not there to date though, especially since Melody looks like his thieving ex-girlfriend. Of course, the more time they spend together, the more they look past appearances.

I just really enjoyed Playing the Maestro. It’s a quick, straightforward romance. I like Mel and Wolf and thought they were a good fit. Even though I’m not into classical music at all, it was interesting to learn more about this world. What really stood out to me was the conflict though. Wolf’s ex really is terrible! And I liked how instead of just letting Mel go, he chases after her and makes sure he clears the air about what’s really going on. No long drawn out break up here!

Sharing is caring!
