If I can keep Hush Note’s leading guitarist, Nixon Winters, on the straight and narrow for the next six months, I’ll finally get my own band to manage—assuming we don’t kill each other first.

The egotistical, irritating rock star is fresh out of rehab, but it’s obvious his demons followed him home—and now I’m sleeping down the hall. I’ve watched him self-destruct every summer, and with album deadlines and tour dates looming, I can’t let it happen again. My career is in his hands.

But tattoos can’t cover every scar, and I’m starting to see through his trademark, irresistible charm to the damage beneath.

Everyone wants the rock star.I’m falling for the man.

If he doesn’t let me in,he’ll never break the cycle—And when these six months are up,I might be the one left broken.


An absolute win for my first read by Rebecca Yarros. I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about Rebecca’s books and I have no idea why I waited so long. Muses and Melodies is the final book in the Hush Note trilogy and one of my favorite things about this series was that each standalone was written by a different author. How fantastic is that?! And can we have more series like this because I’m here for allll of it.

I’ve only read 2 out of 3 in this trilogy and it’s been rather enjoyable reads. In this one, we have Nixon’s story. We get a little glimpse of what happens with him in Sarina Bowen’s Lies and Lullabies and since then, I knew that I needed his story more than anything.

Everything about these two is soooo strongly felt. I loved that there were the enemies to lovers and close proximity factor because that is always bound to make the story better. And it sure did not disappoint. The one thing I really was expecting was all of the emotion. With Nixon battling with his addiction and staying sober (there’s something deeper that weighs constantly on his mind).  Zoe has been appointed to look after Nixon and to make sure he stays in line.

It’s quite the journey that these two go on and so damn emotional. Truly a story that I want to read over and over again, highly recommend.

About Rebecca Yarros

I’m a hopeless romantic and adore all things chocolate, coffee and paleo. No, seriously, I need to have a caffeine IV put in. I’ve adored reading all my life, and writing naturally evolved from my love of late nights and promises of one more page.

I’m also a military wife of sixteen years. During my husband’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was devouring a book a day, and during his third deployment, I finally wrote my own. With a somewhat ironic timing, I received my book deal for Full Measures during his fourth deployment, and published a month after he returned home. We’re currently preparing for his fifth deployment, so check out the blog for the latest!

On the homefront, we have six kids. Yes, you read that right—six. If I’m not writing or playing guitar, I’m usually tying hockey skates for our four boys, or sneaking in John Hughes marathons with my two daughters. We fostered and adopted our youngest daughter from the foster system and we’re passionate about helping others do the same through our non-profit, One October! We’re always busy navigating the winding road of our daughter’s recent autism diagnosis, getting our boys to hockey, prepping for a deployment, and generally trying to stay sane. We’re die-hard Mets fans, but our hearts call Colorado home.
