A love that cannot be denied…

Rock star Sammy West has one last opportunity to make things right with Bree Elise, the woman who had packed up her bass guitar and walked out on him. He never stopped loving her and thought he’d never see her again until a contest essay leads Sammy to Bree. When he shows up to present the winning guitar, Bree is forced to face a painful past and reveal a secret she’d buried many years ago. With hurt on both sides, unless they learn to forgive they’ll never be able to recapture the deep love they once shared.

Ahh, a redemption story. Redemption’s such a big thing in the world of music — just spend time reading the lyrics to any Disturbed song and you’ll see what I mean — but why isn’t there more of it in Rock Fiction? I mean, there is. But it’s usually a side-effect on the way to love. Here, it looks like it’s the full story, the point behind the whole thing.

And that has me curious. About the redemption trope, about how this is pulled off in the story. And other questions, too. Does Sammy know it’s HIS Bree he’s going to see?

Yeah, bring this one on. I want to read it.
