After getting kicked out of her own band—by her own boyfriend—Presley Mason finds herself back in Wisconsin, helping her parents run their renowned music store. Instead of belting out powerhouse vocals to sold-out crowds in L.A., she’s stocking shelves and inspecting rental violins. But the shop isn’t all bad: When she’s vacuuming up late one night, she bumps into the guitar teacher with the smoldering amber eyes and the killer tattoo. And that’s when things take an interesting turn.
Presley soon finds that Paul Kellerman is as good in bed as he is on guitar. So why isn’t he stoked to share his band, Jukebox Bleu, with her? Turns out Paul has crippling stage fright, which he’s been self-medicating without much success. But when Jukebox Bleu’s lead singer gets called for military service, the other members beg Presley to front them. Even though she swore never to mix men with music again, the temptation to perform is almost as intense as her chemistry with Paul. Now Presley must decide what’s more important: a second chance at love . . . or rock stardom.

My ears were ringing with the roar of the crowd as I walked off the stage. Adrenaline had me feeling like a champagne bubble even though I was breathing hard. I’d left everything I had on that stage.
“Great show,” one of the stagehands said with a smile.
“Thanks.” I grabbed my bottle of water from the out-of-the-way spot I’d shoved it in before we went onstage.
Brendan, Dixon, and Shawn were already disappearing into the distance on their way to the green room, but I stayed in the wings for another minute, absorbing the applause and screams of the crowd. Their energy fed me, even though I could have sworn I’d used up all my reserves belting out our set. The crowd was much bigger than usual, but that was to be expected when we were opening for Everyday Extraordinary for their L.A. show. It was the biggest opportunity we’d had yet, and I felt so amped I could have ...
