A well-written story revolving around the lives of three people sounds interesting. It has relatable characters and believable dialogues! Plus, it is well edited. I enjoyed the sample and got my copy! Thank you for the detailed review!

I've just started reading this novel and am already hooked! So beautifully written and structured, the stories of Elias, Malika, Nadia, and Yaser hypnotically pull you in. Can't wait to turn the next page...

I didn't realize that this book was published back in 2016. It feels so long ago! Thank you for such a great review of the book. I'm not that in to romance books but this one seems to be so different from others of its genre. I think I will change my mind about reading this one.

Thanks for the great review! I love listening to Adele's music. If I ever had the chance I would go to her concert too! An interesting concept for a novel. Three people who, for different reasons search for comfort through Adele's music. This sounds like a very unique and interesting book.

It's fascinating that the authors were able to tie three characters living in different cities together by their love of Adele. This sounds like a very interesting character-driven story. Congratulations to the authors for being chosen as BOTD. This was an excellent review. Thanks to the reviewer for a job well done.

This sounds like an interesting book about love and a long road of suffering and consequences of broken relationships: Elias and Malika, Yaser and Mariam, Nadia and her life after the divorce. Besides these three stories are connected by the desire of all three characters to visit the concert of Adele which proves that a common cause can unite different people. Congratulations on becoming BOTD!

The release of "Rolling in the Deep" may have actually saved my life, at some point, so I can definitely see how something can be found in Adele's lyrics. I'm actually curious to see if Yaser's trip to Las Vegas with his wife to see her will actually help rekindle their relationship or open a new but different chapter in their lives.

The plot is interesting and makes me want to know the outcome of their goal of seeing Adele. It seemed to be a novel of different levels of relationships, struggles and finally realization of what's important in one's life. Congrats!

I like that the authors made the focal point to be an actual, real life music icon. I love Adele's music too so I can see myself reading this. Thanks for this review!

While I enjoy romance novels from time to time I don't think that this book will be a good fit for me. I like to mainly focus on two characters and their relationships and this book contains a lot more. So I'm going to pass on this one though I'm sure other readers will enjoy this book.
