Synopsis: Busker Dylan spends his days pulling pints in the local pub and singing on the high street, waiting for fame to call. That suits him fine, until beautiful, but frosty, air stewardess, Scarlett, tosses some coins into his hat but ignores his killer smile and his offer of pizza.
He sets out to get the girl, but Scarlett isn’t in the right frame of mind to date anyone, let alone a penniless, if charming, busker boy.
Dylan’s desperate for his big break, but will it bring him the happiness he longs for? And with Scarlett’s past threatening to ruin her future, will Dylan be left to make sweet music all on his own?

This book was sent to me by Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources so I would firstly like to say thank you for sending it to me and allowing me to be part of this blog tour.
This book follows Dylan, a busking wannabe musician, and Scarlett, a high-end flight hostess. Dylan is determined that he and Scarlett are meant to be together, but she is full of secrets and mistrust, that makes it much harder than Dylan first imagined.
As far as characters go, Dylan was such a wonderful character. He was loving and caring, and only wanted Scarlett, even though she did not make it easy for him.
“He thanked God for the simple pleasures of life, and at that moment, he made a promise he intended to keep: he would never take Scarlett for granted, vowing to cherish her until the day he died”
He was funny, and I found myself giggling out loud at some of the things he came out with throughout the book.
Scarlett, on the other hand, was a tough air-hostess, who obviously had a past that made her mistrusting and a bit angry, it just made me want to keep reading t find out what her issues were. Some of the time she annoyed me, she could see that Dylan was trying to apologise, or make up for something, but she still walked away. She panicked easily and running seemed to be her go-to move.
I really enjoyed the plot of this book, the setting too was wonderful – London is my favourite place in the world, so it was an automatic win for me! The writing was also really easy to get into, I was giggling, and emotional – really felt what the characters were feeling, which made it a great reading experience for me..I didn’t want to put it down until I knew how Dylan and Scarlett’s story ended.
I gave this book a 4 out of a possible 5 stars, I loved it! Thank you again to Rachel and Jackie for allowing me to read and review this book for you! Anyone who is looking for a fun summer romance read, look no further than Air Guitar and Caviar!
Meet the Author:
Jackie Ladbury was desperate to become a journalist when she left school but was ousted within minutes on the day of the exam at her local rag because she’d forgotten to bring a pen.
Short and sharp lesson learned.
Her budding writing career was not on hold for long, though, as Jackie found herself scribbling love stories of pilots and ‘hosties’ while she flew in airplanes of various shapes and sizes as a flight attendant herself.
Fast forward a good few years and, after being short-listed in a couple of prestigious romantic writing competitions, Jackie decided it was time to discard her stilettos, say goodbye to the skies and concentrate on writing romantic novels, where the only given is a guaranteed ‘happy ever after.’
