Rachel Myers never meant to stay in Payton. Her eyes were set on bigger things than waitressing at Clark’s Bar. She wants to perform on a stage of her own with bright lights, fame, and fortune. But something got in the way—Joshua Clark. He’s a good man who loves her, a solid rock she can depend on. She wants that to be enough, but it hasn’t quelled her yearning for the big city.
Josh knows Rachel wants more out of life and might leave one day. Yet so far, she hasn’t gone anywhere. Deep down, he believes his love is enough to keep her…or at least he hopes so. Until one night, a city boy from Hollywood promises Rachel a record deal and destroys everything.
Jumping at a chance she never thought she’d have, Rachel leaves Payton. And Josh. But the sparkle of Los Angeles is not all it’s cracked up to be, and Rachel quickly figures out that some sacrifices are not worth the risk. Is she too late? Will Josh forgive her, or has her desire for fame ruined the best thing she’s ever had?
Sometimes you have to say goodbye before you can say forever.

Nikki's 5 Star Review
This is the first time I have read anything by this author and I really enjoyed it, actually I had finished it in just a few hours it had me hook line and sinker. Great writing, great characters and a rollercoaster of a storyline I was only about 15% in when the tears started so be aware you may need tissues.

Racheal Myers made her mother a promise on her death bed that she would follow her dreams of becoming a country singer and wouldn't let anything hold her back. But lifes not a fairytale she's had it tough living on the streets doing what she can to survive.

Josh Clarke is her saviour he brought her in from the cold gave her a home a job and his heart. Josh has gone through some tough times in his life too and finds it difficult to express with words his true feelings.

When the bright lights of LA come knocking for Racheal giving her the chance to finally fulfill her dream she doesn't hesitate and jumps on that plane leaving a heartbroken Josh behind, but will her new life be everything she dreamed of or has she made the biggest mistake of her life?

One night can change everything…
Nessa Sloan has been in love with Jimmy Baker since the ninth grade when they started up a rock band together. Five years later they’re about to hit the big time—Chaos wins a recording contract and nation-wide tour with Torrence Records. After their celebration party, the two best friends have a one-night stand that will tear their relationship apart. 
On the run from Jimmy’s rejection, Nessa takes off on her motorbike, but an accident brings her escape to a tragic end. Now trapped in a broken body, Nessa has to face a future stripped of the one thing that’s gotten her through every past challenge—playing the drums.
Jimmy never meant to break his best friend’s heart, and he will forever regret taking her to bed then treating her like one of his groupies. But once he’d crossed that line, he couldn’t go back. Now Jimmy is on a mission to do something he’s never done before—win a girl over. 
Angry and confused by her new disability, Nessa doesn’t want Jimmy’s help. But she has nobody else to rely on…and his pigheaded ass won’t leave her alone. Can these two stubborn hearts get past their own insecurities to figure out what true love really looks like? Or will they drive each other crazy before they finally see the truth?
It’s infuriating, irresistible, and all-consuming…it’s true love.
