Introvert teacher vs. unstoppable violinist. She wants to be alone. He wants her heart. Let the games begin…
After the unexpected death of her musician brother, third grade teacher Adara buries her grief, avoids all music, and vows to exist without attachments. Social solitude works perfectly…until she’s forced to share her classroom with the new music mentor, a man who rattles her carefully constructed cage and sparks emotions she prefers to keep chained.
Always up for a challenge, violinist Garret is a master of patience and persistence, and the minute he meets Adara, he knows what he wants. Her sharp humor and haunted eyes inspire him in a way he’s never felt before. He makes it his mission to chip through her shields and breathe her back to life—no matter how hard she resists.
Even as Adara struggles to keep Garret at a distance, with each clash of wills, each smile he coaxes, each kiss he steals, her resistance crumbles. But when the past catches up with them both, they will discover that some promises are meant to be broken…and others are worth risking everything for.EVE
Every Minute is the second book in the Music, Love, and Other Miseries series by C.J. Burright. When her brother died, Adara stopped living too. She put up impenetrable walls. So, when Garrett comes into the picture, she's less than thrilled about the attraction between them. She's spunky and easy to relate to, even though she's guarded. She's real. And, it's impossible not to love Garrett. The more I got to know him the more I liked him. This story was fun and serious as Adara learns to live and love again. Also, we get some more Gia and Ian teases too. I can't wait for more!
