Viola Banks had music in her blood. As an aspiring song writer, she grew up wanting nothing more than to have her words sung for all the world to hear. But that changed when she fell in love and married a man whose ambitions became more important than her own.
And when it all fell disastrously apart, she realized she was left with nothing but shattered dreams and empty promises.
A fairy tale without the happy ending.
Trying to pick up the pieces, Viola decides to move to Los Angeles for a new beginning.
Her chance to find the voice she thought she had lost.
Wyatt Jenson’s life was settled. He had a job. A girlfriend. A future.
Moving back to L.A. to take over the family business was the last thing he wanted. But obligation called and he found himself putting down roots in the last place he ever thought he would be. He finds himself the new owner of String Beans, the local music hotspot and coffee shop.
It only takes one night, one song, one random encounter, and lives can change forever.
Viola has to learn to open a heart that’s been broken.
Because the only way to move on is to remember how to love.
“I’m so hungry,” Callie said.
“Then let’s go,” Dallas answered, locking his door.
We got to the street and had started walking toward Callie’s car when Dallas stopped walking.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Just waiting for Wyatt.”
“Yep,” I heard Wyatt say behind me.
“Um, guys, my car only holds four,” Callie said.
“Well.” Jolie grinned and I knew she was up to something. “Callie, why don’t I ride with you and Dallas so I can get the real story on my girl here. And Vi, why don’t you take Wyatt in your car? All set?”
“Sounds good.” Callie smiled.
“Works for me,” Dallas added. They started to walk away, leaving me alone with Wyatt.
“Where’s your car?” Wyatt asked while I looked at my friends with wide eyes.
Pure. Fucking. Evil.
I will get you all back—at least that’s what I tried to convey with my eyes, but all I heard was their laughter.
“This way,” I said, pointing in the opposite direction.
I climbed into the driver’s seat and waited for Wyatt to join me inside.
He started laughing and looked over at me. “They’re not subtle, are they?”
“Not even a little.” I smiled. “Sorry about them.”
“Listen, full disclosure, I’m very interested. But I know you have things you need to deal with, so no pressure.”
I opened my mouth to speak, but nothing came out. How could it? Wyatt winked sweetly and I shook my head, laughing at him.
“You’re something else, Mr. Earp.”
