Singing in the shower takes on a whole new meaning in Melissa Pearl's first Contemporary Romance. Ella Simmons does not want to move across the country. But she is, because her boyfriend has persuaded her to join him at UChicago to finish out her college education. Never able to tell him no, she hops on a plane and makes the trek from LA expecting to adjust to life like she's often forced to, but things are not that simple when she hears a luscious voice singing over her shower wall. His deep, sexy tenor makes her weak in the knees, spreading fire through her limbs and making her question everything about her life and relationship. Can one voice really have that much of an impact? Cole Reynolds is on his way out. In his final year at UChicao, the only this he wants to do is finish school and get on with this life. But the sweet voice that interrupts his morning shower turns his world upside down. Compelled to find his shower songbird, he begins a search across campus. The only thing to distract him from this goal is his roommate's gorgeous girlfriend who's just arrived from LA - Ella Simmons. Relationships are put to the ultimate test as future dreams are questioned and friendships are thrown on the line for love.

From the premise this sounded like an interesting read, but it became a dnf for me when I just couldn't concentrate enough on it to really sink my teeth into it. Maybe it was the slow opening, I don't know, but I had difficulty connecting enough with the main character to want to continue on with it. I haven't given up hope, though; I may try again at a later date because I really liked the premise of this book.
