Will a return to the stage bring love or heartbreak?

 

Ten years after a near-fatal accident almost ended her musical theater career, Catie Klarken is still struggling to keep a roof over her daughter’s head. Landing the lead in a musical is the break she needs to get her life back on track. Everything hinges on this production.

 

But being in the show comes with its own set of problems. The assistant director is none other than her ex-girlfriend, Addie. Catie can't afford to walk away, but working with her old flame threatens to break down the walls she's built around her heart. The show must go on, but only Catie can decide if their relationship deserves an encore after the final bow.

Story Snippet

I clasp the necklace Grayson gave me three years ago around my neck—two hearts intertwined around Lyssa’s birthstone—as our daughter’s voice echoes through the hall. Something has to remind me why I shouldn’t strangle him over the next four hours. Especially if he thinks pretending to date again is the only way to get his parents off our backs.

They say love conquers all, but does that include adulthood?

After years of being friend-zoned as she watched Catie date other people, Addie finally got her wish. She and Catie started dating shortly after the start of their senior year of college. Now they're ready to leave dorm rooms and cast parties behind in favor of shooting for the stars in the real world- together. 

But when Catie receives devastating news about her mother and the hottest grad student in school sets his sights on Addie's girl, they both realize growing up may actually mean growing apart.
