 ~ Synopsis ~
The life of a session musician is rarely easy. After consecutive tour cancellations and a stack of unpaid bills, Chloe Bennett fears her dream has come to an end.
Then everything changes.
Indie rocker Reid Ryder needs a replacement violinist for his tour. For Chloe, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. For Reid, it’s a checkmark off his list. Already battling addiction, guilt, and his inability to write new music, Reid's hopeful that things are finally falling into place.
But life is never predictable.
When the tour begins, he finds himself drawn to Chloe. She challenges and inspires him. Their onstage chemistry is electric. To the outside world, they’re the perfect match. To those involved, however, it’s not so simple. When Reid’s no longer sure that the future he planned is the one he wants, a choice must be made.
Love...or loyalty.

 ~ Excerpt ~
In three days, they would head back to the States. In three days, he would wake up and Chloe wouldn’t be there. The pit of his stomach twisted and his chest tightened. She wasn’t even gone, and he missed her already. Just the thought of being away from her, even though she was sitting right next to him, hurt more than Jess being on the other side of the world. It was the first time Reid truly began to realize just how far he’d fallen.

~ Review ~
What an introduction to a new author.  I absolutely devoured this book. All of the characters in this book were engaging in their own right.  The chemistry between Reid and Chloe off charts.  I was routing for them from the start hoping that they would each find what it was that they were looking for.

Reid has already reached the point in his career in which fame and notoriety come with it.  He also has the baggage and the demons that come with the lifestyle of a musician as well.  Heading back out on the road will prove to test him in more ways than one. 

Chloe has not yet found her way in love or music.  But when an opportunity to tour with Reid's band lands in her lap, she is determined to make the most of the situation.  Although she readies herself for life on the road in close quarters, she could not prepare for her feelings.

Loved how easy it was for Greer to incite jealousy in Reid.  Pushing his buttons seemed to be his favorite job.  Chloe and Reid's attraction to each other evident to all but themselves.  Would they be able to remain solely band mates or will they find more than music on the road?

Chloe's easy going way made her very likeable. Her addiction to Starbursts and her fondness of Star Wars adorable.  I think that the fact that she didn't fall to the fame and stayed true to herself made her that more desirable to Reid.

I can't say enough about Reid.   What's not to like?  A sexy and overprotective musican....Swoon.   I truly felt for him and his demons.  However holding onto the past will prevent  you from living life and building a future.  A lesson Reid slowly learns from Chloe without even knowing.  

If you are new to this author, as I was, this will be a great introduction to her work.  Grab your copy today see what everyone is talking about!
