She’s mending guitars and her life. 
Jenna Olsen isn’t sure she’ll ever escape her past. Becoming a skilled guitar craftsperson helped with the anxiety, but she dreams of the day when she can trust again. When an up-and-coming country star asks for a custom guitar in an impossible time-frame, Jenna falls for the challenge.

He’s focused on music to help forget the war.
Camden Grace’s music and fans help him cope with the physical wounds he sustained in Iraq. But he’s haunted by his fractured family history. When an angry outburst leaves an expensive guitar shattered, he doesn’t expect to find a strong-willed woman whose struggle echoes his own.

Will creating a new instrument turn their romance into a smash hit?
As the instrument and their feelings start to come together, a dangerous would-be flame attempts to sabotage their relationship. The jealous rival could kill more than their careers if Jenna and Camden can’t rise above the rage to heal their hearts forever.

  1. Aunt G

    I enjoyed this love story about two battle scarred people. The emotions run deep and the punches are powerful as Cam and Jenna’s romance unfolds. As much as I liked this read, I feel it is only fair to say prepare yourself. This book has a lot going on and feels like an intense roller coaster ride that never stops. It is not light, fun or sweet. So do not dive in expecting that.
