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 that 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.
Problem #1: The record label wants her to dump her band and move to L.A. Problem #2: She hadn’t counted on Chance Walker and the scorching heat of that first kiss. And last but not least is Problem #3: Is Chance really falling in love with the dull guitar teacher, or is he really just lusting after the sexy Eva James?
Will success make all of Erin’s dreams come true? Or will falling in love make them both crash and burn?

Loved this story!!!
Chance Walker’s mom died and she made each of her boys to remember to live their dreams. Chance was a lawyer to defend children. Chance had a dream at the age of ten to be a rock star.
Chance went to buy a guitar and needed guitar listens to brush up on his skills. Erin Michaelson worked at the store where Chance bought the guitar. Chemistry between Chance and Erin was SMOKING!!
Chance went to the bar with his brothers where he saw Erin again but as Eva James. Chance kissed Erin in between sets and he knew he wanted to know more. Erin thought Chance only kissed her because she was her alter ego Eva James.
Erin aka Eva James had a producer look at the band. They loved only her not the members. So now she has to decide what to do with the band? Chance? Love?
This story was fast paced and fun to read. Couldn’t put the kindle down!!
Don’t let how many days it took to read story fool you. I had a lot happening in my life!!

A #1 Amazon Bestseller, M.L. (Michele) Callahan is a science fiction and romance fanatic and full time writer whose earliest movie memories are of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and light sabers. (Still waiting on Santa to come through on that one.) She wrote her first short story at age eleven about five friends who fell into another dimension and had to save the Earth – all in ten, sloppy but action packed, wide-ruled notebook pages. Her mother inspired a love of reading and writing and Michele writes seven days a week. She writes sci-fi action adventure as ML Callahan, and romance as Michele Callahan.
