Music critic Claire Abby is a single mom dreading her daughter’s departure for college and worried that turning forty will leave her career running on fumes. When she lands a Rolling Stone interview with ‘80s British rock legend Christopher Penman, she’s floored. It’s way more than a lucky break. Claire spent her teenage years fantasizing he was her boyfriend.
In person, Chris is sexy, charming, and infuriating. He’s not about to discuss the rumors he’s dodged for a decade. Claire tamps down her adolescent fantasies and earns his trust, unearthing the devastating secret behind his media silence. His heartbreaking story is her first priority when she returns home, a nearly impossible task when Christopher starts calling and flirting. There’s no denying his wit or his buttery British accent, and once she agrees to see him, it’s beyond anything her teenage brain ever imagined. But when Christopher’s painful past repeats itself, can Claire save the man she could never forget?
