Reeling from the death of his twin brother and bandmate, rock star Oliver Smith is trying to drink his problems away. Apparently he isn’t very good at it; they follow him wherever he goes. Also in hot pursuit are the paparazzi, who catch Oliver at his lowest low.

He could have walked into any bar in California, but he walked into hers. Emery helps Oliver lose the crowd, and they find themselves alone: two people whose paths are marked with loss and pain. However, they hold an unshakable hope for healing. They find solace together, but can their love withstand the world?


I received this ARC from the author for an honest review.

Brittainy C Cherry is one of my favorite authors and I love her books. The Mixtape is the story of Emery and Olivier, two beautiful people who knew loss and pain and they found each other at the moment when they needed it the most.

When I got out of the shower, I didn’t look in the mirror. Most of the mirrors in my house were covered with sheets. I hadn’t looked in mirrors in such a long time, because in every single one, Alex was staring back my way.”

Olivier lost his twin brother and his coworker and he feels that he lost half of himself and he didn’t know what to do with his life or with his career. Until he meets Emery who fights every day for her daughter and inspires him to move forward and to fight again for his life.

Emery just lost her job and she needs quickly another job to be able to take care of her daughter. For Emery, her daughter Reese is everything and she is the only reason she smiles. Olivier gave her a job as his personal chef in his home and they began to develop a relationship. They spent every day together and the brings them closer and they help each other to heal and open their hearts.

“I just get the feeling that someday you’re going to find it—your happy ending. This is just a temporary thing. Your sadness.”

It was beautiful to see the journey of Olivier, through healing, and how he found again his passion for music and he learned again to be happy and to love again. I love the relationship between Emery and Olivier. I loved Emery’s daughter Reese and how they formed a beautiful family. The Mixtape is a story about love, healing, and finding happiness again.

“Each day was worth living because it led to the better tomorrows, the brighter days, the happily ever after. This was our life. It had its ups and downs, but without question it was ours. This was our mixtape and I was damn proud of it.”
