Synopsis:

"Music is a Moral Law, It Gives Soul to the Universe"- Plato

Sometimes it doesn't matter how long you know a person. The effect they can have on you can happen after four seconds or four years.

In Chase Taylor's case - it's both.

Avery McGuire doesn't just flip on a light inside of her - he sets a blaze to everything holding her back. After only a week together, he has to leave, but he strikes a match before walking away that won't easily burn out.

Four years later, Chase finds herself face to face with the boy -now rock star - who changed everything. The same one she still can't admit to falling head over heels in love with. She has no idea that her world is about to get rocked, in more ways than one.

Excerpt:

Avery knelt beside the older man, his eyes closed, as his head nodded to the beat of the song and his thumb kept rhythm against his knee. The next thing I heard was the most incredible voice, singing out beside this street musician.
The rich, soulful, baritone voice filled the night air, giving me chills. The raspy edge to it proved there was more rock and roll to him. The fact that he knew the words to "Stand by Me,”  well, it was downright adorable—if you can even say that about a pierced, tattooed guy like Avery.
He went back and forth between looking at the guitarist and closing his eyes until the next verse came up. Avery rose to his feet and his eyes met mine as he extended an arm out to me.
I shook my head furiously, determined to avoid humiliating myself next to his unbelievable voice, but as soon as he took my hand I realized I'd never win the fight. Maybe, deep down, part of me already knew that I didn’t want to.
Timidly, I sang out the next part of the song.
I began to feel a little more confident as I reached the end of the verse. The crowd around us was growing slowly, all smiling and snapping along to the beat of the familiar melody.
We sang the next part together and the way our voices blended was unbelievable. Our eyes locked, and without even knowing each other, we knew exactly how to harmonize. During the next guitar interlude, Avery started snapping his fingers and slowly dancing around me, and I couldn't help but laugh, and to do a little shoulder shuffle against him. I caught a passing glimpse of the blonde Adonis with his hair disheveled and hanging in his face. With a look of pure bliss, his voice wrapped around me. Something blossomed deep within me. It was a feeling as if I wanted to do this every single day for the rest of my life. The thought startled me, but in a good way that made me feel light-headed and slightly dizzy. We laughed and just when I thought we would be finishing the song, he started the first verse all over again.
Avery sank to his knees, took my hand, and the rest of the world disappeared. Singing the very last note, his voice rang out and every last one of my senses lay scattered around me.

My Review:

This was something different for me, but I'm hooked. This was such an awesome read!! I can't wait to read the next book and find out more about these great characters.
*hot guys
*rock band
*tattoos
*sheltered girl breaks free

All those details, make a great book. With all those details, what more could you ask for?

I really liked Chase and her BFF Vic.  Both girls had spunk and real character.  The author gave us real insight on how they truly interact with each other. Avery, was confusing not just to Chase but to me as a reader.  He swore he had been thinking of her constanting for 4 years yet he pushed her away when they did reunite.  As for Chase and Jesse, wow-I was actually happy with this turn of events.  I was routing for this one!  I was, yet wasn't surprised at the end.  I know that I am now looking forward to reading Jesse's story.
Definitely worth the time to read!
