As a piano prodigy, Sebastian “Bach” Rostov has the potential to become the greatest pianist of his time. But when he meets the Lansing girls, he’s awakened to desire, love, and heartache, unknowingly set on a course that’ll either lead him to failure or fame.
Through the years Tallulah wraps him around her little finger, entangling him in her web. She repeatedly shatters his heart, robbing him of his inspiration each time. Her hold over him only feeds his obsession more, until he sees Olive …
Can he free himself from Tallulah before his heart is too broken to fix and his genius is lost forever?
Love Me First follows Bach who is a wonderful pianist. His grandpa has been training him to play since before he can even remember. Sasha also taught other students. Which led him to meet Tallulah and Olive Lansing. He met them both at the young age of eight and he was smitten with Tallulah. Even from a young age, you can tell that Tallulah is manipulative.
Tallulah strings Bach around for quite some time. His infatuation with her completely blinded him to who really loves him.
Olive. The younger and quieter sibling. The sibling who loved him first.
When they finally find their love for each other, they collide quickly. Bach falls head over heals for her and can’t get enough. Until she leaves for Paris and doesn’t come back. His love for her never falters, though.
The ending is a happy one and it’s honestly one that I didn’t want to end on a happy note. I feel like Bach shouldn’t have taken Olive back. I know she ended things because she thought it would help his career. But that wasn’t her choice to make. She left Bach hanging and it broke my heart.
This book was a great read. It definitely was a roller coaster ride for my emotions!
