When I first read this series, I went in blind on My Life as a Country Album, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have no idea where I came across it, but it happened to be on my Kindle while I was on vacation, and I really needed something to read. Well, I finished it in nearly one sitting (while sobbing on a balcony in front of the ocean) and immediately went in search of more. I was lucky enough to download My Life as a Pop Album right away and read it the next day, but I was devastated when that was all that had been released. I immediately contacted LJ Evans to let her know how her books had touched me, because I couldn’t get them out of my head. I waited anxiously for more, and LJ continued to earn her spot as one of my favorite authors book after book.
This series has it all. It is so full of love, life, family, and friendship. Sure, there are times where the heartache is profound, but there is also a deep-seated resiliency in each of these characters. We see them struggle, but we also see them fight to overcome and find their happily-ever-afters. I’m not sure I’ve ever read another series that touched me quite like this one.
I waited years to hear Blake Abbott’s side of the story. I begged for it every chance I got, and I swear it doesn’t disappoint. This Life with Cam is absolutely perfect. I swear, the dedication page isn’t even my favorite part. (Okay, it might be right up there, lol.) But seriously, it just goes to show that this series was worth every single tear I shed, because these characters got everything they needed in the end. I will forevermore be on both #TeamJake and #TeamBlake, because they both brought so much love and life to these characters when they needed them most.
Long story short, you want this series. These characters will work their way into your heart and soul. You will completely forget they only exist in booklandia, and they will stay with you long after you have finished reading. This is one of my most frequent recommendations, and I don’t expect that to change any time soon. Do yourself a favor and grab this set today!

About the Author
Award winning author LJ Evans writes character-driven contemporary romance novels that are full of raw emotion and are inspired by music.
She lives in the Central Valley of California with her husband, daughter, and the three terrors called cats. She’s been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. While she currently spends her days teaching 1st grade in a local public school, she spends her free time reading and writing, as well as binge-watching original shows like The Crown, Victoria, Veronica Mars and Stranger Things.
If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt–sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis. Which is exactly why LJ loves fiction novels–the characters can be everything you’re not and still make their way into your heart.
