Every love story should have its own song...

A childhood promise has Chance Walker picking up a guitar once again. Sure, he's been busy growing up, finishing college, and even law school. He made a promise to his dying mother and he's determined to keep it. While his guitar playing dreams were big when he was a kid, his skill is rusty and he hires Erin Michaelson to bring music back into his life. Not only is she incredibly talented, she's one of the sexiest women he's ever met. It's hard to focus on correct finger position when her sweet scent threatens to drive him out of his mind.

Less than twenty-four hours after his first lesson he sees her again, but this time she's on stage using another name and seducing an entire audience of men. He played the gentleman card once, and it got him nowhere. This time, all bets are off and he'll do whatever it takes to keep her. A single, sizzling backstage kiss will change both of their lives forever, because Chance soon realizes that Erin is not just an itch, she's an obsession he refuses to live without.

Erin Michaelson spends her days teaching guitar and her nights on stage as her sexy alter-ego, Eva James. Music is her dream, her passion. All she wants is to say goodbye to a lifetime of scraping by, working two jobs, and paying for past mistakes. When a major record label exec hears her band play, she gets her big break. But life can be a real bitch, and meeting Chance now is just bad timing.

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Chance’s mom left him one last wish.  In order to honor her wish, he has to pick up the guitar again.  When he begins taking lessons from shy and timid Erin, he only expects to see her on Sunday’s to continue with his lesson. He was quite surprised to see her in a band wearing a short mini skirt, boots, and an outrageous wig.  He realizes that he would like to get to know her better.  As a family practice attorney, he doesn’t see himself with a rocker, but immediately decides that he wants to get to know her better.

Erin’s parents were killed when she and her brother were younger.  Both grew up in foster care.  Now, Erin can’t remove herself from her brother who uses her to pay for his bills, his booze, and his women.  Erin has been offered an opportunity with a producer in California.  The producer does not want her brother or other members of the band – only Erin.

This was an excellent plot and was very fast paced.  The issue that I had was with Erin and her alter ego.  Erin was the shy and timid woman until she was with the band or on stage.  When she became Eva, she became a sex vixen.  Often told through Erin’s POV, she would have an inner turmoil of how Eva would handle the situation.  This turn of events created Erin as having a double personality.

I did enjoy the writing style by this author and will continue with the series.  Chance has three brothers, and I am interested in learning more about their stories.
