A Pushing Limits Novel
by Stina Lindenblatt
In a poignant romance from the author of This One Moment (“Hot, intense, and filled with emotion.”—Rachel Harris), the rock stars of Pushing Limits have hit the big time. But fame gets tough when love presents a fork in the road.
At twenty-one, Jared Leigh had been prepared to give up the life of a touring musician to be a father after getting his girlfriend pregnant. When she told him that she’d gotten an abortion, Jared was devastated. Now at least he has the groupies to keep him company—until a blast from the past rocks his world.
Callie Talbert hasn’t seen her sister’s ex since high school. But after Callie bumps into Jared while she’s grocery shopping with four-year-old Logan, there’s a spark that wasn’t there before. Jared quickly realizes that her deaf “son” is the same age his own child would have been. When Jared demands to know more about Logan, Callie panics. There are things she just can’t tell him. Besides, Jared’s a bad-boy rocker, not a dependable father figure. He’ll move on to his next gig soon enough . . . right?
Trouble is, Jared refuses to be pushed away, and the more quality time he spends with Logan, the more he’s captivated by the woman Callie has become. When the truth is revealed, Jared only hopes that the three of them have what it takes to become a real family.
I usually don’t like these stories that start with a lie, but Lindenblatt handles it really well. I totally understand where both parities are coming from and feel for them being such a horrible situation.
Callie is doing the best she can in a difficult situation and she’s doing it like a trooper.. She obviously loves Logan and works hard to give both of them a good life. For having lost almost everything, she’s got great spirit and that shines through. Very appealing for both us … and Jared.
Jared has a pretty good head on his shoulders for an up and coming rock star, with groupies and fans. He’s got a supportive group of friends and a loving family, which helps explain a lot. Running into his old friend and her son has him looking for a chance to reconnect. Only he has no idea what that sets into motion.
The first part of the story involves Callie and Jared meeting again after losing touch for a few years and Callie trying to keep her secret. But of course it doesn’t stay hidden long and that’s where everything really takes off. There’s a lot of conflicting emotion early on but nothing like the quagmire they find themselves in afterward. They are all over the place and for some seriously good reasons.
Emotion packed, with a mix of humor and sizzle, My Song For You will grab you by the heart and not let go until you hit the very last page.
