Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of the On Dublin Street series and Play On returns to the world of the arts in this sexy and emotional standalone romance about love, sacrifice, and surviving both.  

Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map. Eighteen months later she's sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow's ambitious A&R executives.  

Killian O'Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland's most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian's upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn't for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it'll set everyone else's alight.  

Skylar makes it clear that she doesn't want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn't want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he's ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible.

Utterly Beautiful Story

I never read blurbs so when I started to listen and I realized this was a NA I was pretty stoked, I love Samantha’s NA reads. This book really sucked me in. I don’t know if it was Skylar’s pain or how she tries to cope with everything but her story really just had me wanting to know more.

Killian OMG I am in love with this dude he was so so aloof for so long then when you see his soft underbelly it something about a gruff exterior and a soft interior just does something to my romantic heart. I just know that the story is going to so good and it was.

I also loved Killian’s sister she is one of the best side characters she is exactly the relief this book needed when she comes in. I hope she gets a story because she was a great character.

Skylar’s bandmates really make the whole story come full circle I am glad for these few scenes it helped me to see the full sides to Skylar’s character. I hope a lot more people pick up this book because I loved it and I know you will too.

The narration I am completely naïve to what a good accent sounds like THANK G - O - D FOR THIS! Because I thought the narrator did AMAZING!! And I hope I find more books where she does accents!

Amazing!

I didn’t like the first book on this series so I wasn’t expecting much of this installment. Boy was I wrong. This is a powerful story that tackles heavy subjects like mental health, addiction, bullying and others. Our heroine was a rock star a-la No Doubt but then tragedy hits her immediate family and she is not able to cope and quits the band, goes to Scotland to live in the street and become a street singer. One thing led to another and she meets our hero that is a music producer. Their story of love is sweet, powerful and consuming. Very good narration as well. Highly recommended.

Omg I think I actually love this one better than Play On! Killian sigh, what a great book boyfriend. I'm totally in love with Felicity Munroe's narration performance! Her Scottish accents especially of Killian was so sultry. I look forward to listening to Hold On.

Music heals

This book and these words being told to you just make you feel all the feels. The way Skylar fights to hide her feelings from everything when she can’t hide it in from the music she needs desperately in her life and the way Killian can see clearly how much he needs to be there for her.

Samantha has really hits the soul with this one. It beautiful as an audible. Felt so much more.
