Summary (from Goodreads):
“Fighting for redemption…
I’ve lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I’d ever loved-the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I’d made one promise-a promise I’d intended to keep. I’ve broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.
Can she love me even if she can’t forgive me?
Learning to move on…
Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process. I may never love anyone the way I’ve loved him, but at least I won’t spend my life wondering what if. We had our one night and he walked away. I’m finally beginning to move on when my brother’s wedding and a battle of the bands brings us back together.
Our band is getting a second chance, but I don’t know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?”
I have absolutely loved this entire series—so much so that I’ve almost deliberately held on to this book because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Gavin, Dixie, Dallas and Robyn.
I wasn’t prepared for how much I’d love this last book and how much it would break (and then fix) my heart.
I feel like it’s almost cliche to point out that something like “They’re not perfect but they’re perfect for each other” but it’s so true for Gavin and Dixie. They seem to get each other to the point where they can communicate without words. Their romantic relationship hasn’t lasted for very long but they’ve known each other for years—since they were kids—so it’s one of those things where you can have whole conversations without speaking.
When the book opens, of course, they’re not together. And it’s a love story so obviously I knew it would change…but just how it does and what happens is a delight that I won’t ruin for you.
