Looking back one last time at the home that used to hold everything she loved, Hannah Blaine turned back towards the road. Her lucky cowboy boots made impressions in the dirt path with each step. After 15 years with the only man she ever loved, it was time to go back home to Louisville. She hoped heading back to where her life began would help ease the pain from that horrific day. Hannah's heart was, and always would be, with her husband.
Hollis Ackers could care less about women. Hell, he didn't care about anyone. When his mother, the only woman he ever loved, died, he became numb inside. Motorcycles became his life, and the Louisville Biker Group was the perfect stand-in family.
When miss country-girl-in-her-cute-ass-cowboy-boots spills coffee on him, it shouldn't mean a thing. Or will it?
When two people who lost the will to love meet, what will happen? Can new love really heal all the pain?

Hannah's Story was a beautiful and emotional tale of second chances at life and love. Hannah lost the will to live life after the tragic loss of her husband and parents. She lost contact with her Aunt and friends, as she just 'existed'. She now wants to be the fun loving woman she used to be. So she heads back to her hometown of Louisville to reconnect and pursue her love of music and a music career. Her poetic songs reflect her wounded soul. She soon resonates to her audience and begins to attract a following, including the gruff and closed off biker, Hollis. Hollis is broken as well and in search of something he thinks the local bike club will give him, until he meets Hannah. They didn't start off on the best of terms but feel a fiery chemistry that draws them to each other. I liked that they are mature adults and that their relationship starts slow making their growth and healing feel honest and genuine.
I really enjoyed the narrator, Tanya Eby. She set each scene perfectly, her inflections were spot on, and she drew me in completely. This quick emotional story has great banter, sensual passion, and several plot twists that add tension and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and will definitely look for more from Ms. Kelly.
"What if you lost everything you loved."
This is the question you will be asking yourself in this beautifully written and powerful story about love, loss and second chances..
Hannah Blaine returns to her hometown of Louisville, broken and needing to heal after the tragic death of her husband. While there she meets biker Hollis Ackers, a man also marked by the pain of losing someone close to him. Can two lost souls come together, and can Hannah really take a second chance on love.
The way Terra Kelly portrays the soul wrenching pain of Hannah's loss and the stages of grief make you feel like you are going through them with her. I was sucked into Hannah's emotional rollercoaster from page one and I found her songs especially moving. This was also very much a story of hope and taking a chance on love again. The romance between Hannah and Hollis was a joy to read, it was not rushed, they had great chemistry and I loved their journey. Hannah and Hollis have got to be two of my favourite characters so far and I hope to see more of them in future books. Hannah's Story had it all, love, loss, second chance romance, suspense and heat. Grab a box of tissues and settle in, you will not want to put this emotional rollercoaster down! Terra Kelly changed her writing style for this book and it is the best she has written, I definitely found it helped it flow better and made me feel more connected to the story.
Tanya Eby was a fantastic choice of narrator and did a great job. She really did justice to Hannah's Story.
