Casey Grainger is not only the epitome of the girl next door, she’s the girl of my dreams. The blonde bombshell of a bartender who watches me with sky blue eyes, smiles with the sweetest dimples, and whose laughter is as melodic as chimes.
She stole my heart the way sunlight sneaks up on the day. Then a death in her family took her away from me. Now my heart lives in Texas while my body rots in New Jersey. As if that’s not bad enough, the ranch hand on her family’s farm is her damned ex-fiancé.
Austin still loves her, and he’s made it known. So Casey has a choice to make. It’s either him or me, but I’m far too stubborn to give up the fight.
That’s the one upside to having nothing left — I have nothing left to lose.
I don’t date musicians — I don’t date period — yet I find myself drawn to the dark and broody sound tech, whose wailing drum beats thump in time with the cadence of my heart. Beneath the arrogant grin and cocky one-liners, AJ Morello is a lonely man, burdened by the choices he’s made. But, he’s not the only one with regrets.
Mine goes by the name of Austin Krehley.
After seven years away, there’s still a connection. A tiny spark that slowly builds to a burning flame the longer I stay.
Two completely different men both hold two completely different pieces of my heart, but I can’t have them both.
A sexy country boy and a sultry rocker — how’s a girl to choose?

4.5 Amazing Stars! Casey decides to leave the farm and her ex boyfriend to move to New Jersey from Texas.. Casey’s relationship with her ex-fiance Austin ended badly. She gets a job working in a bar and is trying to move on. AJ is a mechanic and ex musician who has been taking care of his sister since his parents died. AJ’s sister married his best friend and ever since then he has felt lost. AJ also works at the bar where he meets Casey. AJ and Casey start a relationship then somethings happens back in Texas and Casey must return. What will happen when Casey returns to Texas and sees her ex-fiance for the first time? Will there still be sparks between Casey and Austin? I was engaged from the first chapter and could not put the book down. The author writes a well written story that is full of twists and turn, romance, and angst. This is a story about finding love again. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and found them to have great depth. This is a stand alone novel but to get insight into AJ’s life you should read Secrets and Promises. I highly recommend it!
