Forever First Series by RaShelle Workman

Touching Melody by RaShelle Workman

Touching Melody is the first installment in the Forever First series by RaShelle Workman.  This is a NA book with a YA feel, it’s good but not great.  Although I liked the twist and turns, this was not to write home to your mother about.  I didn’t have a stand out factor and I didn’t connect to Maddie. She was hot and cold about Kyle.  For her to have so many issues with him she sure didn’t waste any time falling head over heels.  I did, however, like Kyle’s characters and how nurturing and understanding her was.  I liked the twist at the end, but that was to be expected if you saw the foreshadowing throughout this read.

Overall it was just ok at 2 ½ stars.


Maddie Martin's first weekend at college is nothing like she's used to. It's wild, like the wilderness on which the University of Bellam Springs sits. Roped into going to a fraternity party, she literally runs into Kyle Hadley. The boy she's loved since she was nine. The boy she promised all of her firsts to. But that was before his father killed her parents.

Determined to stay away from him, she throws herself into her music. Practicing piano eases her heavy heart, calms the sadness, and pushes away images of Kyle's face.

Until it doesn't.

Her music professor asks her to play a duet for their annual Winter Gala. Doing so means she'll be assured another full ride scholarship. It's an opportunity she can't pass up.

But Kyle is the other half of the duet. And that means hours and hours of practicing.

Weeks of seclusion - just the two of them. And it's more than just music. It's passion like Maddie never believed was possible.

The inevitable happens. She falls in love with him all over again.

But, will loving him be enough to erase all the hate in her heart for his father? Can she look at him, and not see the evil in his family tree?

And maybe it's all a set up. Maybe Kyle is only pretending to care so he can finish what his father started, and kill her too.
