Almost. It had almost been perfect. Like heaven on earth.
Until it wasn’t. Until it was all taken away. Just…like…that.
A bumpy life path had finally led Lara Faulkner to happiness. And Finn Murphy, one of country music’s rising stars, was a big part of that. But his secret and a devastating loss had put up a sudden detour sign.
Lara and Finn now struggle with trying to reconnect back to the way they used to be. With his career threatening to create a bigger distance between them, they must find the strength to tear down the emotional restraints before it’s too late.
But when happiness is once again finally within reach, will it all be shattered just like one of the tragic, sad love songs the country artist himself sings?

“No. Now? Can you come back now?” My voice broke despite trying so hard to stay brave and levelheaded.
Finn heard it immediately, and I heard his voice change just as quickly too. “Lara? What’s wrong? What’s going on?”
“I need you,” I pleaded sounding more desperate than I remember being in such a long time.
But it couldn’t be helped. I knew I couldn’t do this alone. This wasn’t about going to a party by myself. This was…this was…so much more real.
The background noise was no longer as loud. It was obvious Finn had moved to a slightly more secluded area. He knew by my tone and request that something serious was going on.
“Lara? God, Beauty, what’s wrong?”
“Please, Finn, if you can, please come home tonight.” I didn’t want him to worry, and I didn’t want him to change plans, but I knew there was no way around it—he needed to be home.
“Lara! Tell me! What’s going on?” He was practically bellowing, and I wanted to cry just knowing how panicked he was. Before I could answer, I heard him call out to someone on the Memphis end, “I need a flight out—now! I don’t care how you get it, whatever, get me a flight back to New York. Get me home, now!” And then he returned to talk to me. “Lara?”
“Thank you.” I breathed in a huge exhale knowing that he was going to be on his way home.
Once he was back, it would all be better. Finn would make it that way. I knew it.
