It's summer, 1985. The music has never been better. MTV is everywhere. Angie Dawson has landed her dream job. And it's put her on a plane from the UK to Philadelphia to face the guy who broke her heart.
Angie Dawson never wanted to see Graham Whiting or his cheating face again, but her brand new job at Music Maker magazine has her photographing his band, Banks Forest. They're the Fab Four all over again--hot British guys who can have any girl they want. Angie had prepared to be a grown-up about working closely with Graham, but there's one scenario she hadn't anticipated. He says he wants her back. She wants him to be the guy he claims he can be, but he's messed up before, big time. And some facts are unavoidable--the band has massive tours planned and the groupies will always be there. How does a reunion with her ex end up being anything more than a one-night stand?
Save a Prayer is a new-adult novella with steamy scenes and a HEA, no cliffhanger. If you've read Bring Me Back or Back Forever, you will recognize these characters! This story takes place in the heyday of Banks Forest and tells Graham and Angie's story. Chris is in this story, but Claire is not. There are, however, a few nods to her. Save a Prayer originally appeared in the '80s Mix Tape anthology.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I knew from the first few pages of Save a Prayer that I was going to love it, and I did. I'd already read about Graham and Angie in Bring Me Back, and even seeing them together 20 years into the future didn't prevent me from worrying over how they'd manage to find their way back to each other in Save a Prayer. I'm not usually a fan of first person writing, but with Karen Booth it seems perfectly natural and right for the story. The author did an amazing job with this novella, and I highly recommend it.
