Padgett is one of the authors who won me over to rock star romance, and I realize these books may not be for every reader, but I can’t wait to get them in my hot little hands as soon as possible. This book packs an emotional punch with raw authenticity and jaggedly broken characters, with all of their demons, trials and struggles conspicuously on display. Jenna and Cam are incredibly realistic and will resonate deeply with any reader who has ever gone through a dark period in her own life. The other side of the coin, however, is the resilient thread of hope woven among the human imperfections and regretful mistakes, and watching these characters overcome and fight for themselves as well as their happily ever after is truly inspiring.
We first met Jenna Olsen in Kai and Evie's story, “From the First,” so I was definitely eager to read this book. Jenna has had more than her share of trouble, being tried in the court of public opinion by people who believed nothing more than rumors. Understandably, it has left her heart battered and her psyche bruised, and she wants only to hide away in her grandfather's shop and spend her solitude crafting one-of-a-kind guitars. When army veteran and country music sensation, Camden Grace, commissions her to make a guitar there are definite sparks between the two of them. But Cam has his own platoon of ghosts that still haunt him.
It’s an inevitability that bringing together two damaged people will result in all kinds of fireworks. Cam and Jenna both have a ton of stuff from their pasts that they're still working through. Add to that having to figure out how to deal with their attraction and feelings for each other, as well as some really crazy external conflicts, and this book had my eyes and heart riveted to the page. They deal with some pretty harsh realities, and I recommend picking this one up when you’re in a good frame of mind so you'll more fully appreciate the positive, triumphant, uplifting aspects that ultimately result from Cam and Jenna's trials and challenges.
These two may well be my favorite characters from this author, and they’ve definitely secured a place in my heart in what is easily one of the very best books I’ve read this year. Just as there is no light without the dark, Cam and Jenna are all the more powerful, compelling and inspiring for all they’ve endured, survived and conquered. If you’re looking for a book that grabs you by the heart, takes you on a poignantly tender, deeply emotional, unabashedly authentic ride and leaves you with the best kind of book hangover, you absolutely must read Jenna and Cam's story!
*I reviewed this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide a review and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source for this review.
Cameron Grace, an up and coming country music star and former war hero fighting his own demons has purchased such guitars from Jenna's grandfather. When he wrecks his latest model, he comes to Jenna's place to design a new one. A little push from Pop-Pop, a little desire between the two characters and they see each other for what they are: hurting souls trying to find their place again. Their romance is sweet and moves along.
In the midst of this, Jenna's former abuser appears again and seems fixated on her. His actions intimidate her and enable Cameron to protect her. Sometimes the story progresses easily, other times pulls back with additional characters and drama. This, however, often happens in an initial book in a series, as various scenarios are introduced. In typical Alexa fashion, she continues to involve the Seattle Sound characters to keep her "loyal following" charmed.
This book is worth my 5 stars. Sweet story, complex key characters that face real life issues.

Boring characters who had potential due to quite interesting backgrounds, but never met them
Due to dialect, felt that characters were in their 60’s instead of 20’s
