Lifelong passion and perseverance have finally given Nina the one thing she ever wanted: her own environmental non-profit. And yet it’s when she should be on top of the world that she feels the empty results of her neglected personal life. At twenty-seven, maybe now’s the time to see what happens when she takes a break from her hard work.
Chelsey’s passion is music. Still the rebellious stoner he was in high school, growing up has forged his powerful and beautifully raspy voice that sounds like no one else’s. Now that he’s moved to a bigger city with a fertile music scene his raw, rough-hewn talent and uninhibited charisma are garnering popularity for his band. A chance reconnection with Nina proves his teenage infatuation with her hasn’t gone away, but just like before he can’t get Nina to see him as anything more than heartbreak waiting to happen.
But as Nina spends more time with Chelsey, she finds a shared determination and ambition she hadn’t seen before. Between their very different and busy lives, the marine biologist and the rising rock star try to make this delicate new relationship work. As Chelsey’s band gains more and more of a following, the temptations of stardom begin to overwhelm him.
Nina and Chelsey will need to decide if they can make it through this together or if the pressure will break them apart.
