From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note's infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band's chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it's to her pulse.

Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops.

When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she's paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn't able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future.

If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

In this book we meet Quinn and Graham. A woman who is a celebrity and the guy she left, in order to chase her dreams.

When she was young, she left him in their hometown to chase her dreams against the wishes of everyone around her. Her risk paid off, but not without a sacrifice. The sacrifice being Graham. Years have passed and they have moved on physically. Graham’s life has become full and lonely at the same time and Quinn is going through creative block.

The death of a family member brings Quinn back home, and back to face all the people she’s been hurt by and has hurt. Most of all being Graham.

Things are rocky at first, seeing as how his life has changed, but soon enough, they stop fighting the instant connection they have always had.

Now that the funeral is over, and they’ve reconnected, the new roadblock is where are they going to live? She’s needed in LA and he’s needed at home. Can they work through who they are and who they want to be, for love?

This book is a slow burn. I usually don’t like them, but this was filled with so much other story, it took the sting away.

She took one step before stopping. A smile tugged at the corner of her mouth, the same corner I’d kissed earlier, and I fought the urge to stand and capture that mouth again. Her smile broadened, though there was pain in her eyes.

 “Colin is a cool kid. You’re a good dad Graham. I always knew you would be.”

She might as well have stabbed me in the chest.

“Thanks,” I said, watching as she walked away.

Fuck me.

When had I never loved that woman?

Maybe that kiss had woken me up. Maybe it had made me realize how goddamn lonely I’d been without her. I had Colin, but there was a corner of my heart that would always belong to Quinn.

 I should have followed her nine years ago.

Because now it was too late.
