L.J. Evans | Author Reader Match

November 23, 2018

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present L.J. Evans!


I write…well, lots of genres, but they all have some kind of romance wrapped into them. My current standalone series, MY LIFE AS AN ALBUM, is contemporary romance. It started with a coming-of-age romance and is ending with a new adult slow burn. I’ve been accused of making people cry with my words, and I’m only half sorry for it.  Each book in this series was inspired by music and each chapter is really a song title where the words of the song speak to what the characters are going through. If you like music and romance, then you’ll, hopefully, love how they collide in these books.


Sappy, romantic writer seeks fans of beautiful lyrics and touching words to read a series that is full of raw emotions and happy endings. After being a victim of “love at first sight” herself and being joyfully married for twenty-five years, the writer feels qualified to share a few happily ever afters with the rest of the world.


  • Knows that stories, like sweet tea, take time to reach perfection.
  • Appreciates broken and damaged people who find love and healing through self-discovery.
  • Appreciates that romance is not always a sexy love scene, but that a sexy love scene can be full of romance.
  • Appreciates the anticipation of a slow burn and just how fulfilling the end result can be.
  • Isn’t afraid to have their soul captured by the characters in a book even if those characters will never let them go.


  • Beautiful words that stick with you.
  • Laughter through tears.
  • New meaning to familiar lyrics that you thought you already knew.
  • Happily ever afters that will make your heart burst into joyful song.


My Life as an Album Book 4

My Life as a Mixtape

“One mistake doesn’t make you a failure.”

I came to Tennessee to help a friend.
And now, I’m stuck.
By the Southern charm,
By the sweet tea and
By a tall, red-headed “Strawberry Shortcake”

And when my world crumbles apart,
Wynn is there to help me pick up the pieces.
To show me the way.

My life was a huge disappointment.
My marriage,
My job,
Everything slipped away.

Coming home seemed like the final failure.
But then I meet him,
Lonnie Brennan, the sexy bass player,
Who adds laughter to my life.

And now, I realize that I can
Change my tune,
Sing a new song.

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes the music inspired
conclusion to the MY LIFE AS AN ALBUM SERIES about hope and new
