Publisher's summary

Living modestly in a quiet suburb with her grandmother, Caterina Ryan vows to have no connection with her former life in the spotlight. The door to her past has been locked and the key thrown away. 

When a home renovation project brings the irresistibly charming and gorgeous Mateo Cruz into her life, she finds herself drawn back to a dark place. A place where dreams were shattered and hearts betrayed. Encouraged to accept a “once in a lifetime” opportunity in the music industry, Mateo seeks to make a name for himself while remaining true to the woman he loves. 

Their shared love of music brings them closer than ever, but will the temptations of fame and fortune threaten to tear them apart?

Music, love and family

I was expecting a rocker romance but the story was much than music. The author gave us family, romance, music, betrayal, debilitating disease and redemption.

In the beginning, we met Cat who just returned from a trip from Africa (okay, this is the one area that annoyed me. A Village in Africa is like saying a Village in North America) and she came to care for a grandmother who was "forgetting" things and needed consistent watching and care. She met the lead contractor on her grandmother's home renovations, a hot Puerto Rican man named Mateo, whom she nicknamed Senor Delicioso. While she was attracted to him, Cat and Mateo were more enemies than friends, but it eventually grew into more.

I thought this book was just a simple musician meets a contractor but the characters were very rich and complex. The family situation added another layer because sacrifices had to be made to make sure Grandmother was cared for and watched constantly. It felt so realistic because the stress of watching a grandparent with Alzheimer disease can crush a relationship. There was so many obstacles to their relationship but the strongest was Cat's immense distrust of people after a very deep betrayal by those who were supposed to love and protect her. But for Cat and Mateo to both follow their dreams and maintain their relationship, there had to some healing that both characters had to undergo.

It was a like peeling layers back and getting to the heart of both Mateo and Cat but one thing I can say was they were both such good people that I was rooting for them. I wanted them to win individually and together. It was such a good story and the final twist that was the redemption made this story feel complete. I got more than I was expecting so I will be checking out more of this author's work.
