Falling in love is easy…

New Hope, South Carolina is my home. It’s where I grew up, got into trouble, and fell in love for the first time. Scarlett Kincaid was more than the girl next door, she was my best friend, until she decided that small town life wasn’t for her. One minute she was here, and the next she was gone.

The girl I used to fish with down at the creek is now the biggest name in country music. She headlines world tours, has won four Grammy’s, and I haven’t seen her since. Until today when she sped through town in her fancy car. One look at her big brown eyes was all it took to stir up a whole slew of emotions. Emotions I’d long ago buried and sure as hell don’t have time for. 

It’s the aftermath that’s hard…

There are two things in my life that matter. My music, and my dad. Twelve years ago, I packed a bag and chased my dream. Leaving New Hope and escaping the gossip mill was the easiest decision I ever made. I never planned to return, but my father needs me, and he always comes first. So, I did what I had to do. I cut my tour short and came home, despite having a sister who hates me, and a community that doesn’t trust me. And then there’s Tucker Andrews.

When he propped an arm on the roof of my car, pulled down his sunglasses and flashed his police badge, I nearly swallowed my tongue. Gone is the lanky boy who used to throw rocks at me and pull my pigtails. Tucker is now a six-foot package of brawny, sexy man wrapped in more muscle than I have hit singles. Did I mention he’s a cop and a single dad?

My goal was to help Dad, and get back to my life. But what am I supposed to do when the life that used to strangle me suddenly fits like a glove, and makes me dream of things I never thought I’d have? What happens when the boy I walked away from years ago becomes one of the most important people in my life? I don’t have room for a man much less love.


Because it’s impossible to hold onto someone who’s already gone.

Sweet, Charming and a bit angsty! Loved it!

Already Gone by Kristen Proby and K.L. Grayson was a sweet, charming and a bit angsty second chance romance. What happens if you fall in love with someone who is already gone? Scarlet Kincaid left New Hope, South Carolina twelve years ago and has never come back. She is now is a country star. The world loves her and she loves it. Her life is more than she ever dreamed off. But she has never been back home. When she left, she never looked back. Now her dad needs her and she has no choice but to go back.

But not everyone is happy she is back. Tucker and Scarlett were friends growing up. They were close, so when she left and never looked back, Tucker was hurt. Now she is back and he has to protect his heart. The sexy single father was determined and charming. Scarlett was independent and strong but was also vulnerable. Their attraction is off the charts, but her life is in Nashville and his is in New Hope. Can they have a future or will their hearts be broken again?

Happy reading!

A must read!!

A new release co-written by Kristen Proby and K.L. Grayson? Of course it’s going to be amazing! This book was the perfect blend of sexiness, drama, and growth by all characters.

Scarlett was a fun, but different heroine. She knew what she wanted in life and went for it, but I felt like she made a lot of personal sacrifices along the way. Tucker is perfect for her. He helps her find that balance between work and play, even if the journey is long.

I really enjoyed a lot of the secondary characters, and I would love to see more from these two!!!

This is definitely a must read!!

Loved it!!!

This is the sweetest story!

You will meet Scarlet and Tucker, childhood friends who maybe always had a little crush but when Scarlett moves away to follow her big country star dreams and leaves her hometown and everyone in it behind, let’s just says her return isn’t as welcomed as she thought it’d be.

Now Tucker is all grown up and raising his daughter alone, the last thing he needs is to be thinking about Scarlett who’s only in town to help her ill father. But that doesn’t stop them from going all in.

I loved this story! Sweet, sassy and easy to read!
