EXCERPT

“No,” said the bodyguard.

“But—”

“Miss, do you have any idea how many people try to get backstage by claiming they have some sort of relationship with Mr. Dillon?” Face a careful blank, the man in the slick black suit stared down at me. He had a point. I’d pushed through a crush of fans, getting my toes stomped on several times, along with taking an elbow to the kidney, just to talk to this guy. God only knew what it took to get near the star of the show.

“I’d imagine a lot,” I yelled back at him. Necessary given the volume of the music filling the space. “The difference here is I’m not lying.”

“But since everyone says that, you can see from my perspective how that’s not actually a point of difference.”

Adam Dillon, rock star extraordinaire, gyrated his slim denim-clad hips like an Alt-Rock Elvis on the nearby stage. He pouted and crooned about the woman who’d done him wrong. Me. That’s right, I was the big bad ex who’d broken him and woke him to the dangers of love. Or so the song said. 

The song lied and then some.

According to the lyrics he was currently wailing, I’d ground his heart beneath my five-inch heels before blowing him a kiss goodbye. From memory, there’d been a lot of shouting, but no blowing of kisses. And having just kicked off the flats I wore for work, I’d been barefoot, my legs and back aching. No way had I been strutting around in stilettos. Home from a hard day at the hair salon, I’d returned to find Adam on the couch. The same place he’d been when I’d left for work approximately eleven hours earlier. The same place he’d been for what felt like months as I worked my ass off to pay the rent. That’s when all hell broke loose. However, it wasn’t the only issue that had caused our relationship to bomb. Nothing’s ever simple. 

But back to the here and now. I grabbed the slip of paper out of my front pocket, holding it up for his perusal. “My name is Jill Schwartz. How many of those people claiming to know him have one of these?”

His eyes widened as he scanned the name on the check, before widening again at the amount. And fair enough too. I’d had a mild panic attack myself when it had first arrived. When Adam decided to make a statement, he didn’t bother with subtle. If only I could figure out what it all meant. If it meant anything at all, of course. And that question was what had brought me here tonight.





Love Song, a 1001 Dark Nights Novella is the perfect introduction to this author’s Stage Dive series as it gives the reader a taste of her beautiful writing style along with the an entertaining story that is sure to capture one’s attention. For those loyal followers, you will be pleased to have this new, albeit short addition to the series.


Love Song is a second chance romance between two characters who are seemingly opposites and had a falling out just before Adam skyrocketed to superstardom.  Adam is the quintessential rockstar star - famous, gorgeous, and charismatic.  While Jill is a sassy little spitfire that brings him to his knees    I found myself chuckling at the humorous moments especially at Jill’s wonderfully snarky comments. This is a relatively short novella and while the author tied up the second chance aspect between them, I found myself wanting more.  Nonetheless, it is a solid rockstar romance that I really enjoyed. I especially loved the cameos from the Stage Dive band members and their partners.  So much so, that I am ready to reread the entire series because it is that good.
