Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion, Where the Rhythm Takes You is a romantic, mesmerizing novel of first love and second chances.

Seventeen-year-old Reyna has spent most of her life at the Plumeria, her family's gorgeous seaside resort in Tobago. But what once seemed like paradise is starting to feel more like purgatory. It's been two years since Reyna's mother passed away, two years since Aiden--her childhood best friend, first kiss, first love, first everything--left the island to pursue his music dreams.

Reyna's friends are all planning their futures and heading abroad. Even Daddy seems to want to move on, leaving her to try to keep the Plumeria running.

And that's when Aiden comes roaring back into her life--as a VIP guest at the resort.

Aiden is now one-third of DJ Bacchanal--the latest, hottest music group on the scene. While Reyna has stayed exactly where he left her, Aiden has returned to Tobago with his Grammy-nominated band and two gorgeous LA socialites. And he may (or may not be) dating one of them...

"What a delightful debut! It's like the perfect island vacation: breezy, warm, romantic, lots of soul searching, and full to the brim with love." --Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Dass' engrossing debut is an exploration of second-chance romances, friendship, and living for yourself. Childhood friends and lovebirds Reyna and Aiden have their lives disrupted when Aiden makes the decision to move to California and pursue a career in music. Two years later, Reyna is attempting to keep her mother's memory alive by working at the family hotel, while Aiden is an international success as part of the trio DJ Bacchanal. When Reyna's brother-in-law's celebrity-status sisters decide to visit Tobago, Reyna doesn't expect Aiden to be a part of the entourage. But during the whirlwind trip, Reyna and Aiden are thrust into the same circles again and forced to confront their past and decide if their romance deserves a second chance. In this love letter to the music of the islands, Dass' focus on the people and the places of Tobago are vivid and authentic. Part romance and part self-discovery, this moving novel tackles loss, love, and the complicated nature of standing still in an ever-changing world."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Dass's debut, 17-year-old Reyna is thrown for a loop when her now-famous ex-boyfriend, Aiden, 18, returns to Tobago with his music group and some socialite friends. After the group comes to stay at her family's hotel, the Plumeria, Reyna and Aiden decide it's best to avoid each other. Unfortunately, his friends insist on having Reyna help with planning his surprise birthday activities. As she becomes more involved with this new group and reminisces about how she and Aiden first fell in love, she's forced to face changes to her mother's hotel, her best friend moving away to art school, and having no direction for herself. As her spark with Aiden reignites, she is plagued with regret for giving up her love of painting as well as a festering resentment of the expectations her deceased mother placed upon her. Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion, Dass interweaves the allure of the source material with the warm tropical winds and scents of Tobago. Readers, even those unfamiliar with Austen's work, will appreciate this cast of characters with believable motivations and fleshed-out ideas as they realize what they want and embrace second chances for love and for new adventures. Ages 13--up. (May)"
