SYNOPSIS: She can't remember. He can't forget. 

Eva Baumann is invisible. Sebastian Weiss is famous. In a perfect world Eva would be fearless and Sebastian would be guiltless. 
It's not a perfect world. 

Singer songwriter Eva Baumann has a celebrity crush on Sebastian Weiss. He’s perfect to love because there was no way they could ever be a thing. She’s a nobody. He’s a heartthrob. Hiding an infatuation is easy for her because, since her accident, hiding is what she did best. 

Sebastian Weiss’s band climbed the charts, seemingly overnight, and he’s finally living the dream. All he has to do is write enough songs to produce a second album. The bad news is he hasn’t written a new song in over a year. 

Sebastian stumbles into the Blue Note Pub in time to hear Eva Baumann perform a hauntingly beautiful song. Could this girl be the answer to defeating his writer’s block? 

Eva and Sebastian begin a complicated writing relationship that leads to more. But Sebastian has a secret that will devastate them both. 


MY REVIEW: Eva Baumann was a normal teenage girl until one moment changed her entire life. Now going through day to day with no spark, always wondering what could have been, is starting to wear on her. 

Sebastian Weiss always knew he didn't want to follow in his parents footsteps but he didn't know it would cost him his entire family. After years on his own trying to get his big break, the work has finally paid off. Sebastian Weiss is now the lead singer for the up and coming Hollow Fellows. 

When these two soul collide will it be the end of the loneliness they both feel? Can they help one another heal and move on from the past?

Lee Strauss has done it again! Flesh and Bone, the second book in the Minstrel Series, is fantastic. With deep rooted secrets and fears, the plot is suspenseful and the HEA is wonderful. Lee's characters - Eva and Sebastian - are once again written to the point where you feel as though you know both of them and the things they keep bottled inside. The setting - Germany - is beautifully depicted and mentions of new places have been add to this book. 

Flesh and Bone is about forgiveness, redemption, and love - the love of yourself and the love of another.

The music for Flesh and Bone which can be found HERE is beautifully written and so incredibly soulful.

Flesh and Bone is a fantastic read worthy of 5 stars! I can't wait for book three in this series.
