Release Day Review! The Girl in the Front Row by Kelsey Kingsley

The Girl in the Front Row by Kelsey Kingsley
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 21 2022
Publisher: Self

Lennon Jacobs is nobody.

Born with a rare eye condition and living in a world of black and white, she’s unable to drive, find an accommodating job, and have the life she’s always dreamed of. From her viewpoint, she can’t see anything special about herself—but Dylan Pierce disagrees.

When the famous rock star spots her from across a crowded room, he sees something in her she doesn't and is desperate to uncover her secrets. Lennon makes the split decision to pretend to be someone she’s not. For one night and one night only, she manages to be someone confident, worthy, and important, then slips away expecting to never see him again.

Imagine her surprise when the first man to make her feel like somebody shows up at her front door …

The Girl in the Front Row by Kelsey Kingsley is a stand alone romance with some characters that feel very real. Lennon and Dylan are deeply flawed and raw characters, but that only makes you love them more. I really struggled with the cheating part of the story. That is unforgivable for me, but I feel like this book handled the situation as best as it could have. I'm still not happy about it. Otherwise, I was thoroughly pulled into Lennon and Dylan's life. There were so many little details that really breathed life into these two.. right down to how they got their names. Their relationship was beautiful, and ugly, and everything in between. You could really feel how much heart, soul, and pieces of herself the author put into The Girl in the Front Row. It's a brave thing to do, and it paid off. 

The ARC of The Girl in the Front Row by Kelsey Kingsley was kindly provided to me by Wordsmith Publicity for review. The opinions are my own.

When I was a wee lassie, I was told by my preschool teachers that I was a natural at storytelling. When I was just a little older than that, an old friend's mother said to me, "Kelsey, one day your books are going to be on the shelves at the library."

Well, Diane, I don't know if my books are ever going to be on the shelves of libraries, but I'm sure as hell going to try.

When I'm not writing stories destined to be bestsellers, I enjoy devouring TV shows, listening to every type of music there is and going to concerts, reading pretty much anything (with a soft spot for romance and certain books located in 18th century Scotland), obsessing over makeup, and pretending to workout.

I also have a fondness for cats, my family, tattoos, and a really good French fry.
