Hello, I’m Aubrey Parr. I’m a debut author of contemporary romance. I am currently writing book 2, Love on Ocean Drive, in my Love on… series. But, please check out my first book, Love on the Malecon.
I thought I’d do something fun with it. I love music. I feel like we have soundtracks for our lives. It only made sense that I have a soundtrack for my book. I put together a list of songs from scenes I thought could use specific songs. Check out my page on Amazon. You can get Love on the Malecon in print or ebook. Then follow the links to the music below while you’re reading it.
In Chapter 1, when you meet Nicole and learn her back story listen to Rascal Flatts – My Wish
In Chapter 2, when you meet Derek and learn about his past and how he started his company. Listen to Dexter Freebish – Life of Saturdays.
In Chapter 5, the first time they’re in Nicole’s hotel room together. Listen to Dexter Freebish – Higher.
In Chapter 9, when Nicole comes down into the lobby and Derek is waiting for her by the bar. She’s wearing a beautiful, gold dress that he bought for her. Listen to Chet Faker – Gold.
In Chapter 12, Derek has made a huge decision in his life. Listen to Dexter Freebish – Beautiful Girl
In Chapter’s 14 and 15, after a big scare for Nicole. She is trying to be strong and brave, but ultimately she’s still vulnerable. Listen to X Ambassadors – Unsteady.
In Chapter 17 Nicole makes a big step in her life. Listen to Dierks Bentley – Somewhere on a Beach
In Chapter 21 and into 22, there is another stressful time. Their relationship grows from everything that happens. I don’t want to give away the plot, but listen to The Frey – Heartless
In Chapter 25, Nicole and Derek decide to go for an impromptu run on the beach. It’s a very freeing moment for Nicole and there is a sense of relief. Listen to Coldplay – When I Ruled the World
Again in Chapter 25, when Nicole and Derek go to the little restaurant with her father’s favorite fajitas. Listen to Heartland – I Loved Her First
In Chapter 27, the final pages of the book – during the last scene. Again, I don’t want to give away the plot, but please listen to Wild Cub – Thunder Clatter.
You’ll notice that a lot of music is from the band, Dexter Freebish. They’re an amazing band out of Austin, Texas. I could probably have used their music for the entire soundtrack. Make sure to check them out as well. http://www.dexterfreebish.com/
In the heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta, there is a magical oceanfront promenade known as the Malecon. As a tribute to her father’s life, Nicole James travels to his favorite place on Earth. On the cobblestone streets of charming Puerto Vallarta, she meets Derek, an ex-MMA fighter who invested his winnings into land for luxury hotels. Derek is fabulously wealthy, aging like fine wine, and lives on resorts like an endless vacation. Could her father have orchestrated this chance meeting with Mr. Right from beyond the grave? Derek Stone never thought a woman would fit into the world he created, until Nicole came along. She’s beautiful, smart, and sexy. More importantly, she has no idea of his money. Derek has taken care of himself for his entire life. He’s not used to trusting anyone.
Can he tear down his walls and let Nicole inside?
