From rock icon to house husband.
From academic historian to tell-all memoirist.
They changed their lives for each other.
Now they need to change them back.
What follows happily-ever-after? Love gets real.
Like every woman emphatically in love, academic Elizabeth Winston figured she'd fix her rockstar lover's emotional problems with her shiny, all-encompassing acceptance.
Even though she'd heard her minister father counsel couples throughout her childhood, she forgot the take-away. You can't force someone to heal before they're ready.
Now she's five thousand miles from the man she loves and hawking intimate details of their relationship to salvage his iconic legacy. Struggling to keep her own identity, and increasingly unsure whether Zander's even on board.
Can she redeem his reputation while holding onto her career, or is she making things worse on all fronts?
And that's before she makes a mistake that changes everything.
He gave up the world for love. The world isn't ready to let him go.
Fame is a destroyer.
Which is why Zander Freedman quit music.
These days its moderation in all things, except Elizabeth Winston.
But building an ordinary life with an extraordinary woman isn't easy.
For one, she's deep in the snake pit he left behind.
For two, he has a stalker that stops him being by her side.
Loving her is easy. Letting her love him is something he works on every day.
How hard does Elizabeth's life have to be before she regrets choosing him?
