Singer Farin O’Conner has it all. A new contract with her dream label. Unprecedented access to Jameson Lockhardt, the world’s most successful creator of musical megastars. And due to a chance encounter at a swank LA restaurant, the enviable attention of pop music sensation, Jordan Grant.

In one heartbreaking moment, the façade of Farin’s perfect world shatters. Shaky personal relationships, tormenting memories of a troubled childhood, and the unrelenting pursuit of Jordan’s brother soon leave her emotionally unstable and desperate for relief. But no amount of lust, fame, money, or pills can prevent Farin’s past and present from colliding in a miasma of secrets and scandals that will change her life—and theirs—forever.

Grab your backstage pass for an exclusive glimpse behind fame and fortune, into the heart of rock ‘n roll. Explore the complex lives and loves of three musical families connected by secrets one man will kill to protect.

Music is murder. Long live rock 'n roll.

I read the original Ties before the re-release. I look forward to reading the re-release to see what changes are in store for me. If you love a novel that has character development, heroes to vote for and villians to hate, romance, intrigue, mystery and a well thought out plot then your going to love Ties. I laughed and cried but I never put the book down. I have just ordered the next book Embers and am anxiously waiting to see how the saga continues. I recommend this book to anybody that truly enjoys getting lost in a good story!!!

I really enjoyed this book. I first thought this was a romance book, and since I don't read many romance novels I was unsure if I'd like it. What a pleasant surprise this book was!! Once I started I really couldn't put it down! The characters are so real, and the author makes sure you know each one intimately. If you like a good romance/adventure/mystery with a little sex, lies, and rock and roll- then this is the book for you. I can't wait for the sequal!
Guest More than 1 year ago I loved this novel and can't wait for Embers to come out. It is interesting, and keeps the readers interest. I love the strong charactors and they way they are presented. Great work. Jean

Absolutely riveting! I could not put the book down. I was sucked in from page one, and enthralled to the end. I cannot wait until the next book comes out. I think that Ms. O¿Brien should write more books. Her style of writing kept me guessing what was going to happen next. And the ending really got me. I think the author intended this book primarily for an adult female readership, but I enjoyed every word. From the entertainment business, to wild affairs, conspiracy, and murder. I really recommend this book, it is well worth the price.
