Two strong, battle-scarred people grapple with how to make a relationship work in the forceful first Austin After Dark contemporary. Ever since Austin, Tex., became a country music hub, the Olsen family's custom guitar business has done well. Whenever country music star Camden Grace wants a new instrument, he's willing to pay the Olsens whatever they charge. He needs a new guitar ASAP, but 24-year-old co-owner Jenna Olsen is swamped with orders. There are three things that might put him at the head of the queue, though. First, Camden's just rescued Jenna from an attack by a high school nemesis who won't let an old grudge die. Second, Jenna's grandfather, the widely respected luthier who founded the business, has a soft spot for Camden. And third, every time Jenna sees Camden, sparks fly. But Camden has PTSD from his time as an Army Ranger, and Jenna's a survivor of assault. The harm that trauma can wreak on a budding romance is convincingly portrayed as each lover is simultaneously drawn to and unnerved by commitment to the other. For fans of complicated characters, this one's a shoo-in. (BookLife)

A sweet, heartfelt, messy, emotional read
I just finished this book, and...wow. Five stars all the way! Written with sensitivity, raw emotion, depth, and realism. Life is messy, and emotions are real — I think the author captured that in this book.... where bad things happen to good people, and the fallout/regrets haunt. Pain and fear, and learning to cope with PTSD/panic situations. It changes everything, but both Cam and Jenna find a way together, amidst their pain. Both strong, both very talented/renowned in their fields. Jenna is a good person - sassy, feisty, and independent - but choices she’s made in her past have had painful consequences and a manipulator from her past is out to hurt her. Cam is deeply scarred too, from a really messy relationship, and from his military service, and a family secret that comes to light. Their story evolves with staggering events and surprises and ends with a beautiful HEA. Loved it!
This book had so much potential!!! In those first couple chapters I was so interested & then it just got stupid & unrealistic. But what really got me was the annoying use of endearment “sugar”. It was over kill! Disappointed.
