I love women. And it's easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country's hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don't do complicated. Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That's when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I've ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn't just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I've built? We're connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

*May be read as a standalone*  

3 stars 

This was my first read by Jodie Larson and I liked it. It is the second in a series but can be read as a standalone. Myles is the guitarist of the band Lightning Strikes. He is the fun playboy of the band. Though he is having fun and tries to live a simple life, he harbors a broken heart. Tatum is the girl that broke his heart. When these two are brought back into each other’s lives, what will happen? 

I did enjoy this story. Myles was a little hard to like in the beginning because of his actions, especially when Tatum came back in the picture. But when the sweet and nice boy shone through, he was a delight. Tatum was a sweet girl. I loved seeing the flashbacks of Myles and Tatum’s relationship. It really showed the personalities of them both and how much they loved each other. When these two reconnect in the present, it is intense. They have that magical connection that was not going to be denied no matter how many years they spent apart. That everlasting love that they have was nice to read about. When everything was right, it was great. I also loved the camaraderie of the band. They’ve known each other forever so it was great to see that love and friendship -though they did have some misgivings but it was just like every other family relationship. Jodie kept my interest from beginning to end. The relationship between Myles and Tatum was fascinating and I was intrigued to see how it would all play out. The characters and storyline was good. A little angst but also sweet. I like a nice second-chance story. Overall, a decent read.

Jodie Larson lives along the shores of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota with her husband and four beautiful daughters. Writing has always been something she enjoys and uses it as an escape, in addition to getting lost in her numerous books. Her family is highly supportive of both her love for reading and writing. A lover of all things happily ever after, she writes romantic novels because the world could use a little more love.
