Country music blogger Celia Westbrooke is no stranger to what goes on behind the scenes of the music industry. She refuses to be anyone’s one-night stand which is why falling for a musician is out of the question…until it wasn’t. When what should have been a normal interview turns into a night of passion – everything changes.
Jesse Rockford moved to Nashville with a guitar and dream. He was looking for a record deal. Instead, he found was a girl worth writing songs about. The only problem – Celia is the only girl in town who’s off limits.
The more their relationship heats up, the higher the stakes should their secret come out. They’ll need to figure out fast if their chemistry between the sheets is something that’s worth risking everything for.
Behind the Strings is part one of the two-part Nashville Starlet country music romance series
It’s almost impossible to find the kind of love you hear in a song, but Celia and Jesse’s came pretty close. That was until one night threw a wrench in their whirlwind romance and led them to the last place they thought they’d end up – alone.
When Jesse asks for time apart, Celia heads back to her hometown of Hamden where she’s about to learn that even though you can escape the bright lights of Nashville you can’t hide from the truth.
Deep in the Tennessee mountains Celia must take a walk down memory lane to find out if history will repeat itself or if her and Jesse have what it takes to find their way back to each other.
