The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings on Friday ~
I paid good money to get into the after-party with the band. In fact, I spent pretty much my life savings just for the off chance I might get to speak with him. But the second I walked in, I realized my mistake. I didn't belong here among the half-dressed women with their fumbling footsteps and slurred speech.
"No...Sophie," he said softly, standing up and walking over to me.
"You're beautiful. I just see you more as..."
Disappointed, I supplied, "A band nerd?"
He threw his head back and barked a laugh. "I don't know about your school, but there were some good looking band nerds at mine!"
"Whatever." I looked away. I hated feeling so inadequate. I found myself wondering exactly what kind of man I would be good enough for. I didn't like the answer my brain gave me.
Sophie lives her life as a hospice nurse running from her past and over-compensating for her sins. She wants nothing more than to help others the way someone once helped her. But she never expected to get so attached to one of her patients. Nicholas is suddenly looking for more meaning in his life than money, fast women and flashing lights. Life as a rocker has left him empty. Only Emily filled the gaping hole in his heart and with her death, his soul is broken into pieces. When two lives collide, Sophie and Nicholas know they'll never be the same. Together, they try to figure out a message Emily has left behind. Can they succeed before the realities of life tear them apart?
