REVIEW: This story was very uplifting and had a completely different feel from the first book in the series. Hallie has been using music as therapy to get back to a normal life and keep Ryan as a forever happy memory. Sean is the man for her and she can’t stand the thought of losing him, so through her struggles and emotional baggage, she meets Colby who tempts her…he’s sexy, sly, partially arrogant, and loves music. When the story unfolds, leaving Hallie with more problems then she has answers, she must make some difficult choices and follow her heart.
