Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.
All the T’s are crossed and I’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly-humming redhead who's too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman …
She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
She must go.
Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.

Look the Part starts off with a huge bang, in the form of a heartbreaking tragedy that sets the tone of the story, in this emotional read. It’s going on my Top Read list and I’m almost one-hundred percent certain it will be my #1 book of the year. Those of you who are movie buffs might recognize the quote from Steel Magnolias “Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion” and it describes this amazing story ‘to a T’.
Fair warning: you’ll need a box of tissues handy while reading this angsty, beautiful story. It’s filled with laugh out really loud moments, so beware! The levity, thankfully, lightened the story a little so as not drown us in unbearable sorrow. I loved this story and I wish I could convince each and every one of you to take a risk, with your tender hearts, and read it. The most honest praise I can give this story is that I felt an emotional connection with the main characters they had such incredible fortitude and they left me awestruck. The secondary characters were incredibly important and added so much to the story; I loved each and every one of them. I was left in mourning at the end of it and despite the incredible epilogue I was truly sorry to say goodbye to everyone.
Flint Hopkins is a successful attorney raising his son, Harrison, after losing his wife. He’s been consumed by terrible guilt for the last ten years and doesn’t have a life outside of taking care of his son. Harrison has Asperger’s Syndrome and Flint’s a hands on parent. He changed Harrison’s diet and tested him for allergens, all things Flint swears has helped him be a well-adjusted, fairly “normal” twelve-year-old.
Flint owns the building his office is located in and when he has a vacancy above his office he rents it to Ellen “Elle” Rodgers, a music therapist. Flint thought the attractive redhead was a little strange, she kept humming when discussing the terms of the rental, but her references checked out. As soon as she moves in he realizes the loud sounds he finds disturbing are coming from her office and decides this is not going to work for him. When he tells her he’s evicting her, giving her two-weeks notice to move out, Elle is not pleased at all. His secretary, Amanda, is also surprised at his reaction.
“She’s a music therapist, Flint. Please tell me you assumed music would be involved? Otherwise, I’m embarrassed for you.”
“This isn’t going to work.”
“But seriously…you have to tell me what you thought a music therapist does.”
“Comfy sofas and relaxing music played through noise-cancelling headphones.”
She smirks “You should have done an internet search. Lots of videos showing exactly what happens at a music therapist’s office. I’m a little surprised this one slid by you.”
Elle is upset the stern looking Flint is evicting her, and decides she should fight the eviction, or just ignore it. He can’t be serious, can he? After meeting Harrison, this unlikely pair forms a bond over music, something Flint can’t ignore. Although he’s serious about her moving out he begins to spend more time with Elle, and they grow closer and closer together, until they can’t deny the attraction.
“And you’re the first breath of oxygen that’s touched my lungs in ten years,” he whispers in my ear.
This story! I just finished it and I’m going to reread it, just to savor the words, again. There’s a HUGE surprise in the story and I hope no one spills the beans so you can enjoy it as much as I did! Every single character in this book is amazing **sigh**
