If a romance could be categorized as hard-hitting, Heart's Song qualifies.The story, written in the form of back and forth messages of emails and texts, shows up-and-coming rock star Geoff developing a relationship with Emily. Both come to the relationship as wounded people who want to find love on their own terms. Full of beautiful poetry and rough rock lyrics, Heart's Song plunges the reader into what life on the road is like as two wounded people stumble their way into love and forgiveness. For those who love an edgy romance full of brutal honesty, Heart's Song is at the top of the charts. --Carol Grace Stratton, author of Lake Surrender
Aaron Gansky and Kaye Morrison are both gifted writers. Blend their tal-ents and you ve got a recipe for some kind of wonderful! Together they've created in Heart's Song a world so hauntingly real and characters so achingly human, you ll forget this is fiction. I wanted to go onto Facebook where Geoff and Emily reconnected and friend them myself so I could go on following their lives and cheering them on. --Ann Tatlock, novelist, editor, and children s book author
Wow! Just Wow! Aaron and Kaye swept me right into the middle of Heart's Song. It was love letters in the modern age via email, text, and video chat with some live action in between. Rock and Roll meets conservative grace. A mix of wonderfully crafted words and deep layers of real life truths. Geoff and Emily will live in the reader's heart long after they read the last line. --Cindy Ervin Huff, blogger, reviewer and author of Secrets and Charades.

Okay, not really. This story. This modern-day rock romance between Geoff Morris and Emily Amherst that’s played out via emails and text messages and phone transcripts and journal entries. What an amazing way to tell a story. What an amazing story to tell!
Written by Aaron Gansky and Kaye Morrison (Cindy Sproles), this is edge-of-your-seat action and emotion.
The book is just that beautiful. It really is. And it really did make me cry. In public. At my new job.
Every dialogue transaction brought me deeper into the characters’ plights, their pull to each other, the world keeping them apart. One thing after another, and then finally, almost, together HAHA FOOLED YOU, but wait, no, he’s here, she’s here, YES!, nope, fooled you again, home calls, responsibilities, past troubles . . . Ugh. It’s like breathing underwater while trying to dance the Mambo. Get it? It can’t be done!
I can tell you, the story starts with a bang. Literally. Well, almost literally. Emily’s boyfriend beats the youknowwhat out of her and Geoff sends her a ticket to safety. They knew each other back in the day, and have rekindled their friendship. Is it more? They want it to be. Or do they? He’s a budding rock star, she’s a quiet girl trying to put her life back together. They’re like oil and water.
They get to know each other again, on deeper levels, and it’s pretty revealing. And pretty misunderstood. And pretty terrific.
Look, if you’ve ever been in that get-to-know-you stage of a relationship, if you’ve ever had an ex who scarred you in different ways, if you’ve ever wanted to matter to someone, you need to read this book. Live vicariously through it. Root for Geoff and Emily. Because right now they’re being pulled apart. And they need all the rooting they can get.
