Julie Soto’s New Book, Not Another Love Song is Out in July

Julie Soto, author of Forget Me Not, has announced that she’ll be releasing a new book, Not Another Love Song, on July 16th, 2024. 

Not Another Love Song is about two string players who are fighting their growing attraction to each other as they’re also competing for center stage. This book will feature one of the side characters from Forget Me Not, and will include cameos from Ama and Eliot, the main characters from that novel. 

Here’s a synopsis from Goodreads:

Gwen Jackson and Xander Thorne are both musical prodigies, but each has had very different paths to success. Xander was born into classical music royalty, while Gwen had a natural ear for music that was nurtured by a kind shop owner.

After Gwen performs at his friend’s wedding, she’s mortified when she realizes Xander has no clue who she is—despite having worked together for a year at the Pops Orchestra. But she’s more furious that he arrogantly critiques her performance.

When Gwen is offered the role of First Chair of the orchestra, something Xander had secretly coveted for years, their existing hostility goes up a notch. But their respect for each other’s music is undeniable, and their onstage chemistry off the scale. As they begin to explore their feelings for one another, suddenly they’re box office dynamite and the fragile romance that’s growing between them is in danger of being crushed beneath a publicity stunt…

The early reviews from ARC readers are few but largely positive. 

To recap, Julie Soto was a beloved fanfic author (under the name LovesBitca8), within the Harry Potter and Star Wars fandoms. In 2023, she published her first original, Forget Me Not (you can read my full review of it here). 

Forget Me Not was popular with the audience, with largely positive reviews and a Goodreads rating of 4.04 stars from 29,621 reviewers. 

I’m looking forward to reading more from Julie Soto since I’ve enjoyed her fanfics and generally had fun with Forget Me Not. The book could have used more romance and a little less wedding planning, but I’m hoping that this next novel will do that. Stay tuned for my review and happy reading!
