Zane Larson has done everything he set out to do: conquered past demons, saved lives through his music, and toured the world as the frontman for one of the most popular rock bands in the world. This life—and an escape through music—was supposed to be everything he’s ever wanted, but after meeting Rowan, Zane’s no longer sure…

Soon after her husband’s death, Rowan Dugas learned she was pregnant. With grief and uncertainty her only companions, Rowan was only able to find an escape through music; specifically Zane Larson’s hypnotic voice. But after meeting the sexy lead singer of her favorite band, Rowan can hardly believe he’s interested in her. But Zane also has a painful connection to her unborn child - Zane's brother is responsible for her husband's death.

Torn between the only family she has left, and a life with Zane unlike anything she’s dared to dream about, Rowan’s decision will change her fate forever. This new title from New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn is a heart wrenching, emotionally intense story that will leave readers breathless.

Val’s Review

3 Stars

I liked this book…but I didn’t love it like I loved the first one in in the series.

Why not, you say?


Let’s face it.

The heroine being McKnocked Up by her DEAD husband?



The periphery characters sticking their noses in where it doesn’t belong, saying awful shit to the heroine under the guise of “caring…” and the heroine TAKING it?



This^^^ sitch causing me to halfway dislike the main characters from book one?



Now, don’t get me wrong, characters do and say shit we don’t always agree with all the time.

I don’t expect or want characters to act just like me.

But when I spend almost the entirety of a book wanting to fuck up half the characters and tell them shut their mouths and mind their damn own?



But whatevs.

Aside from the proverbial pink elephant in the womb and me wishing I could build the heroine a backbone that does more than bend, I DID enjoy this book.

Zane was a cutie and I LOVED the glimpse we got of Damien, the mysterious and hot AF youngest brother.

Golly gee, I sure hope his book is next.
