When people looked at Austin King, they thought he had everything. And he did...once. Shelby was his everything, his world. Sure they were young, but it didn't matter. He knew in his gut, he knew it with everything they were meant to be. People told him all the time he was out of his mind, no one married their first girlfriend, but they were wrong– or so he thought.

As soon as Austin got the chance of a lifetime, Shelby was gone. Sure he was living it up in the hottest band out there, but all the fame and money meant nothing without her. It felt more like a tragedy.

When a tornado rips their hometown apart, Austin runs home to help out. It doesn't matter that he's been avoiding the place like the plague. His family needs him. The moment he sees Shelby, all the reasons he's stayed away suddenly don't matter. One look in her haunted eyes, and he knows he's made a big mistake. He thought that by staying gone, he was making her happy, but he had been wrong. He didn't care how many times she told him they didn't work, he knew they were perfect for each other. She might be stubborn, but he was determined to win her back. That's why he wasn't leaving until they got their encore.

Crosses All Genres: Raw Life Moments. High intensity reading, not just of the romance, but of situations and some events that are completely out of anyone's control. A heartfelt tale that wrings your heart out for every drop of blood and then pumps your heart back up again to overflowing. The title of this novel is "Encore" but it also could have been titled "Endure". Wow! Just so emotional of a journey when undertaking to read this novel. So worth it to take the time to read, for everyone. This is much, much more than a romance, a rock star rising, family - albeit by blood or by heart, it is about raw life moments that can occur to anyone. Great must read! Highly recommended!! I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this novel via Booksprout and I am leaving an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation to this author.

I absolutely loved this book. The way Austin was with Shelby makes me wish I had someone who treated me like that. It was so romantic with some great sexy scenes, but had many things happen that a lot of people could relate to, myself included. And I like the fact that Shelby was so real and not portrayed as a super model like most romances. True beauty is within.

This book was so down to earth. I love rock star books and second chances. It was the best of both worlds for me. Austin and Shelby have had a rough past. When tragedy strikes Austins life, Shelby’s life is set into turmoil too. Meeting your past again is always hard but seeing your past love is the hardest when you still love them. Austin is such a great boy. He loves his family to pieces. His mom, brother, sister and niece are so important to him. Its just one thing he has in common Shelby. She fits right into his family well, too well she always thought. The things that tore them apart, can they be fixed after all these years? I can see so many possible storylines coming from this book! I can’t wait to read and find out what the next installment has in store for us. Enjoy!

There is a saying “If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.”? That’s exactly what Shelby did with Austin. They were only 16 years old and Shelby was the one that encouraged Austin to try out for the singing talent show Supernova. When Austin ended up in second place a band approached him to join them. Shelby could see how the long distance relationship wasn’t working out and she knew she couldn’t hold Austin back from the chance of a lifetime. Of course with the frame comes the downside and that’s with the tabloid headlines making Austin the bad boy of the group. He was trying to live up to that label with heavy drinking and different women regularly in his bed. Now five years later they find themselves back in the same town again. Austin was brought back home after a tornado went through destroying everything. Austin’s sister was hurt and his mother was severely injured. Austin wasn’t the only one who lost something that day, Shelby lost her brother-in-law and the only family she had left being her sister, Anna, was now in a coma fighting for her life. Just being in the presence of each other again brought back the same feelings that had never actually left either of them. But what was the different this time and how would it work with Austin being on the road and living in LA with Shelby still living in their hometown? How does the small town librarian fit into the life of a famous rock star living in LA? This was a great rock romance, second chance read. I couldn’t put this book down because it took me in and kept me hooked until the very end. I’d love to see a story on Dani and Nate!

I love the way this author writes a story and how she uses her characters so well to bring it to life. This story has so much depth and so many different things to keep you invested in not only the characters but all of the action as well. These two needed skills they had only used to help others and never used to voice for themselves. They learn and use those skills to make their second chance work. Their friends and family help out along the way and are a great addition to the story. Family, support, guidance, compromise, angst, and sorrow all pour out of the pages as this author does so well. My heart broke over and over in different ways for different reasons all that from this wonderful emotional read.
