Review: Everything Begins With Us by E.A. Andrews

Eighteen-year-old Harper Deacon has never been a rebel. She’s always been a rule-follower who goes along to get along. Until she does the one thing her mother asked her not to do. When she bails on college to pursue her dream of becoming a musician, her mom kicks her out and she moves into the house she inherited from her granddad.

Smith Dalton doesn’t follow the rules. He bends them to his own needs. After driving off the lead singer of the indie rock band he recently joined, Smith talks Harper into being the band’s new lead singer.

Sounds like the perfect plan. But Harper has her doubts. Joining a band with three guys? She’s never even had guy friends before. Spending a lot of time with a certain guitar player who is too good-looking, too cool, and too much of everything? That could get complicated. Especially when the guy is a player who just hooks up and moves on. The last thing Harper needs is to fall for a guy who will only break her heart.

Music is her number one priority and she has every intention of staying focused on what really matters. But, as Harper is finding out, being in a band is about more than just the music. And sometimes, what you think you want and what you really need are two very different things.



We have Harper who decides she no longer wants to follow her moms plan and wants to become a singer no matter the cost. I have to applaud Harper for her decision especially knowing her mother wasn't supportive and she would be on her own financially and emotionally. At the age of 18 I couldn't imagine being on my own. Harper eventually joins a band and I loved the whole group. They are all different coming from all walks of life but the love they have for each other is something else. Then we have Smith who is a combination of things and I wasn't sure about him at first. I had one theory and I was wrong. I have to say I'm impressed the author went this route and I applaud her for writing about this topic.

 I did have a few minor issues with the story and that was the pacing. Some chapters seemed long and drawn out and other chapters were quick. I wish the ending would have been longer. I was left wanting more and had some unanswered questions. I hope there will be another book or a novella and we can catch up with the gang. Overall, this  was a good debut novel by E.A. Andrews and she had a lot of potential. I look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.
