The life of a session musician is rarely easy. After consecutive tour cancellations and a stack of unpaid bills, Chloe Bennett fears her dream has come to an end.
Then everything changes.
Indie rocker Reid Ryder needs a replacement violinist for his tour. For Chloe, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. For Reid, it’s a checkmark off his list. Already battling addiction, guilt, and his inability to write new music, Reid's hopeful that things are finally falling into place.
But life is never predictable.
When the tour begins, he finds himself drawn to Chloe. She challenges and inspires him. Their onstage chemistry is electric. To the outside world, they’re the perfect match. To those involved, however, it’s not so simple. When Reid’s no longer sure that the future he planned is the one he wants, a choice must be made.

Review: 5+++ stars!
This was my status on goodreads after I finished B&B
I just stayed up all night and read Brooklyn and Beale in one sitting. It's 6:08 am, i started reading around 11 pm last night. I couldn't put it down.
Here's my actual review:
Let me start by saying Olivia Evans can write like no other. Her stories are unique and totally catch my attention. I stayed up all night to finish B&B so that should tell you how much it caught my attention.
It's been awhile since I've read a book that made my heart race with anticipation. And with Brooklyn & Beale my heart was all over the place. But in a good way of course. I was so invested in these characters, and was scared of my heart hurting. Because Olivia likes to pull at those heart strings.
I can't say too much about the story because spoilers suck....but I just want everyone to know this book is totally amazing!! I need a new book by Olivia ASAP!! I love when a book makes me feel. So come on Olivia....I NEED MORE! <3
Lulled into an almost sedated state, she wasn’t prepared for the crushing emotion that saturated the air when Reid began to sing. Song after song, his voice mimicked the lyrics. Soft and sad, rough and tender, hopeful and despairing. It was like nothing she’d ever experienced, and it affected her in ways she didn’t realize were possible.
She wanted to step behind Reid and wrap her arms around his waist. She wanted to press her cheek to his back and hug him as tightly as possible. She wanted to do anything to stop the pain in his voice.
