When a big-city agent wants to rent the abandoned chapel on the Bowens’ property for an obscene amount of money, it seems like a deal of a lifetime . . . there’s just one small catch.
Disgraced, broken-down, whisky-swilling rock god Nathaniel Black is set to make a comeback, or at least that’s what his long-suffering agent is hoping.
Nathaniel’s last chance for salvation is to lock himself away from the temptations of his wicked life. With no women, no booze, and no drugs. Only the music. The one thing he didn’t count on was forming a complex, life-changing bond with a reclusive, talented songbird, Sadie Bowen.
Twenty three-year-old Sadie has all of Nathaniel’s cassette tapes under her bed and his tattered poster lining the inside of her wardrobe door. And now he’s here, in her backyard, eating her food and sharing her bathroom—a dream come true, right? Until Sadie realises her teenage idol is the most infuriating, arrogant man-child she has ever met.
Will seclusion lead to destruction? Or will Sadie finally get a chance to learn who the real man is behind the music? One thing is clear: despite every voice inside her head telling her to stay away, she can’t.
She can’t help it, can’t fight it.
Nathaniel Black is about to become her favourite mistake.
When I started reading this book I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but as I read I realised I was pleasantly surprised with the book. It had me feeling a bit of every emotion from sadness to anger and even embarrassment. I absolutely loved the interactions between Nathaniel and Sadie though out the book.
Book was great loved the story and the strong female lead and the rock star, tension between the two keep in interested and reading wanted to get to the end thanks for another great story
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
CJ has done it again!
Wow, CJ has done it again! I think every young girl has a fantasy that they’re going to meet their celebrity crush like it was fate and fall in love with each other. Well that’s exactly what CJ has bought to life, with the feel good romance Beyond Here Lies Nothing!
I connected with this story immediately, not only because I was that young girl fantasizing about my celebrity crush falling for me, but the down to earth feel that the book had. Even though Nathaniel was a “rock god” Sadie never treated him as such, she was just her normal self.
Not only that but the Aussie culture throughout the book, as with all of CJ’s books, made me feel a deeper connection with it and the characters.
A smile was set on my face as I continued to read the cute moments between Nathaniel and Sadie, as their romance blossomed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and am excited for more CJ to come!
