"Tonight on stage, Ray Sandler was all those old fantasies come back to life. Emily Rivers soaked up his every move and she felt alive again for the first time in what felt like years. She never thought he would actually notice her, though."
Emily is a successful woman in the tail end of a failing marriage. Ray is the reformed wild boy of rock, back on stage again for the first time in years. As a teenager Emily had Ray's posters all over her bedroom wall so when she gets backstage tickets it's as if her dreams have come true. Actually meeting him is an unexpected highlight of the evening, but that's as far as it could ever go. They come from such different worlds: what could an international star ever see in a grounded, curvy woman like Emily? And how long could they ever keep such a relationship private when everyone from jealous fans to intrusive reporters wants a piece of Ray?
As things turn out to be even more complicated than she had first believed, and when tragedy and angry exes threaten to pull them apart and their secret affair threatens to go spectacularly public, can Emily do anything or has it all gone way beyond her control?
And when one of the sweetest things a man has ever done for Emily turns out to be a lie, will she ever be able to trust him again?
A story of secret romance in the world of the super-rich: an international celebrity and his unlikely BBW love. Steamy and passionate and full of the twists and turns familiar to readers of PJ Adams' work, including the bestsellers Winner Takes All and Black Widow.
"It's our song, Emily. It's your song. It's for you. Everything's for you, now."
Reader reviews of the serialized version:
"I loved this book! It really left me wanting more."
"WOW what a great book! This is a seriously juicy romance."
"PJ Adams does a fine job of taking these raw ingredients of a rock star fantasy and making them real and believable. The fantasy is grounded in the real world, and Emily's personality comes through strongly as she tries to navigate these tricky new waters. I loved this, and will be looking for more by this author."

**I received an ARC of this story for an honest review This is a story about Emily, a successful businesswoman that goes to a small performance by Ray, the lead singer of one of her biggest high school rock band crushes. By a twist of fate, she gets the opportunity to him after the concert where sparks fly. The upside is she is experiencing a dream come true. The reality is that they are both married. Emily is at the point where she is realizing her marriage is over, so she can't resist pursuing a relationship with Ray, who has been separated from his wife for a long time. Obstacles threaten to break them up, but in the end they are able to overcome them. Normally when one (or in this place both) of the main characters are married, it's an instant don't read for me. However, knowing right from the beginning that the marriages were at the end helped me to decide to give it a try. I really liked Emily's character and while some of it was predictable, it worked for me. It was something I could almost imagine happening. With some rock star books I've read, authors tend to throw in every situation imaginable, but the author didn't try to do that here. The end chapter was very sweet.
