Virtuosity did not really catch my attention in the beginning, because I do not typically read contemporary fiction. I am glad I did take a chance on this wonderful novel.

I loved Carmen and I really felt the emotion behind her suffering. She was incredibly brave and I really admired her for it. I felt like she really grew throughout Virtuosity and became a better person.

Jeremy was so cute, but even I was questioning his love for Carmen. From the get-go I was suspicious of him and was wondering if he really liked her or if he was trying to knock her off her game. In the end, I really fell for his character, however, and absolutely loved him and Carmen together. Jessica Martinez writes such a sweet romance that I could not help but smile.

The writing and plot were simple, but very effective. I did not expect the twist at all. I applaud Martinez on her wonderful story telling. As a former violinist, I also appreciated the fact that Martinez knew what she was talking about when it came to the violin.

Overall, I very much enjoyed Virtuosity. I would highly recommend it to any fans of contemporary fiction and to violinists or fans of violin music.

Rating: ★★★★½
