Release Date: October 25th
Sweet, shy and a bit goofy, Tinley Michaels has it all: a great mother, a wonderful, sexy, loving boyfriend, and her whole life ahead of her. One day her world is turned upside down when the love of her life suddenly leaves her without reason. She is left broken and vulnerable and vows to never let a man destroy her again. Months later, she decides to dust herself off and finally realize her dream of being a Broadway star. With nothing holding her back, she leaves everything she’s ever known in Texas to start her new life in New York City. She moves in with her cousin, makes some great new friends, gets a steady job and an audition for a part in a small theater. Things are heading in the right direction.
Tinley isn’t looking for anyone. She is jaded but still hopelessly in love with her first love. That’s when, by chance, she meets Van Whitaker, the smooth talking sexy lead singer of the best-selling rock band, Ripping Pages. She labels him a man-whore/rock-n-roll douchebag immediately. Van tries to show her that he’s no longer that guy and that he sees something in Tinley worth trying to be better for. Even though he makes her feel things she’s only read about in the hundreds of romance novels she’s shamelessly addicted to, she is scared he will leave her even more broken than she already is. Should she give this gorgeous rock star the time of day? And what will she do when she comes face to face with her past and she must make a decision that will change her future and her forever?
What happens when the page you ripped out of the book of your life suddenly tries to put itself back into the story?
My thoughts: I loved this book! Rachel asked me if I would like to be on this tour and there was no way I could say no! I have a thing for books that have hot guys who can sing and play guitar!!! HMMM I wonder who doesn’t!! When we met Tinley she is a sad little broken gilr who has decided that she needs to pick up and make her dreams come true no matter what anyone else thinks. Her mom lives so far away and her boyfriend up and left her so when she moves to NY with her cousin her main goal is to make her dreams of being on stage come true. Well her cousin has other plans for her so she goes to a party and runs into one sexy guy who is in a band she doesnt listen to which he loves about her. But Tin has no clue what do with herself she feels like she is out of her element with him. She feels a pull to him Van has something about him that she just cant let go of. He supports her dreams and is there for her when she didnt think anyone would ever be again. Van pulls things out of her that she didnt know she had. You can see her slowly getting over her ex that left her high and dry. Than one day her past comes to smack her in the face almost literaly she is torn, but people seems to make decisions for her and she is not sure what to do. She wants what she thinks she can no longer have, and that breaks her down even more and she seems to start going down the path that she isnt sure she wants. Her friends are sticking by her side even though you can tell they want to tell her to snap out of it and see what she is losing. When tradgey strikes the pull she thought was gone reappears but that doesnt mean she is willing to let her heart make her choices anymore. Rachel does such a great job on making sure that you feel everything that is happening in this book. You dont feel rushed, you dont feel as if you are going to miss something or be pulled away from something. I think the story of Tinley and Van could have gone very wrong in another writers hand but Rachel did it just right!!!! I thank her very much for trusting me enough with her book!!!

She is addicted to music, chocolate, Christmas, lip gloss, glitter and all things girly. She lives in Texas with her family.
