Covered in tattoos, singing songs about drugs, drinking and heartache, Nate acts more like an out of control rock star than the grandson of one of the genres most influential and legendary stars. Every man wants to be him. Every woman wants just one night with the hard-rocking country rebel.
Except me. I just want to know that the boy I used to love is happy and that I didn’t break his heart in vain. That’s why I buy every magazine that even mentions his name; at least, that’s the story I tell myself.
When my friends gave me a birthday present any fan would die for, I was suddenly face-to-face with the man I never thought I’d see again. My body wasn’t supposed to react to him the way it did. And, Nate sure as hell wasn’t supposed to look at me the way he used to.
Can someone you loved as a teenager really have a hold on your heart twelve years later? Is it ever too late to say you’re sorry and make up for past wrongs? I’m about to find out
The story begins with Lia's friends taking her to a Nate Kelly concert, in a limousine, as a surprise birthday gift. They also manage to secure passes for a meet and greet, all without knowing that Nate Kelly, the king of country music, was her first love when they were in high school. In the years since, they have had no contact but they both still have feelings for each other.
This beautiful, emotional read was difficult for me to read at times because Carina made me so heartbroken for them. There is a lot of hurt between them over decisions that Lia made in the past, that ended their relationship. These decisions weren't the best choices, but she made them out of love for Nate and with the best of intentions.
I absolutely loved reading this book and I know I will be rereading it at some point because it's just that good! I can't wait for the next book in the series where we get Mike's story. I came to love all of the supporting characters so much I feel as if I know them all!
This is a second chance romance that will tear at your heartstrings, so get your tissues ready and enjoy! I'm giving this beautiful story 5 stars!
