5 Star Review – The Love Song of Sawyer Bell by Avon Gale

5 Star Review – The Love Song of Sawyer Bell by Avon Gale














Victoria “Vix” Vincent has only two weeks to find a replacement fiddle player for her band’s summer tour. When classically trained violinist Sawyer Bell shows up for an audition, Vix is thrilled. Sawyer is talented, gorgeous, funny, and excited about playing indie rock instead of Beethoven. Their friendship soon blossoms into romance, even though Vix tries to remember that Sawyer’s presence is only temporary.

Sawyer’s parents think she’s spending the summer months touring Europe with a chamber ensemble. But Sawyer is in dire need of a break from the competitiveness of Juilliard, and desperately wants to rediscover her love of music. Going on tour with her secret high school crush is just an added bonus. Especially when Vix kisses her one night after a show, and they discover that the stage isn’t the only place they have chemistry.

But the tour won’t last forever, and as the summer winds down, Sawyer has to make a tough decision about her future—and what it means to follow her heart.














The Love Song of Sawyer Bell completely knocked me on my ass. No kidding, this book was so not what I expected and that is no doubt one of my favourite things about it. I loved it!

Here’s a tip, DO NOT start this book before bed or you will kiss sleep goodbye. I had to force myself to put it down so I wasn’t doing my best zombie impersonation the next day at work. It was HARD to do. I didn’t want to stop because it’s that good.

To say I was hooked on this story from the opening pages is an understatement. There is just something about these author’s writing that draws you in immediately and keeps you glued to the pages till you are done but still thinking about the book days later.

Just wait to you meet Sawyer, Vix and the rest of the band. When I said that this book was not what I was expecting, when you meet them you will understand why. This is no ordinary band and tour, it so much more than that.

I absolutely loved Sawyer and Vix. Their love story was so fresh, sweet, adorable and beautiful it made me forget all the ugly things in this world for a little while and remember that sometimes the simplest things mean the most. Like finding your joy of something again, or just the company you keep.

Sawyer and Vix both experience a big learning curve over the course of the summer tour and its hands down a delight to read. From Sawyer finally finding and owning her sexuality to Vix learning a few things about herself she did not expect, you will find yourself mesmerised by these two as they navigate a new relationship, touring, life altering decisions and in one case a way too much fun trip to a sex shop that had me grinning from ear to ear as I read it. So much fun.

 Be prepared to laugh, sigh, rock out and fall in love with these two characters that have stolen into my heart with this book. I can’t wait to for more because I don’t think I’m ready to leave the tour yet. Maybe a re-read will be the cure. Nah, the next book will be but I can get lost again till then.

 Thank you, Avon Gale, for breathing life into these characters and giving them a voice.

Avon Gale wrote her first story at the age of seven, about a “Space Hat” hanging on a rack and waiting for that special person to come along and purchase it — even if it was a bit weirder than the other, more normal hats. Like all of Avon’s characters, the space hat did get its happily ever after — though she’s pretty sure it was with a unicorn. She likes to think her vocabulary has improved since then, but the theme of quirky people waiting for their perfect match is still one of her favorites.

Avon grew up in the southern United States, and now lives with her very patient husband in a liberal midwestern college town. When she’s not writing, she’s either doing some kind of craft project that makes a huge mess, reading, watching horror movies, listening to music or yelling at her favorite hockey team to get it together, already. Avon is always up for a road trip, adores Kentucky bourbon, thinks nothing is as stress relieving as a good rock concert and will never say no to candy.

At one point, Avon was the mayor of both Jazzercise and Lollicup on Foursquare. This tells you basically all you need to know about her as a person.
