Product Description

About the Author

Mel Henry is a die-hard romantic with a flair for the dramatic. At the age of six, she wrote a children's book based on the true story of the family of rabbits she rescued from her farm pond. It was a contender for a Newbery Award until the board found out she'd actually thrown the rabbits in the pond before said rescue. Since that time, she's written dozens of short stories, passive-aggressive notes, math equations, restaurant reviews, romance novels and, most recently, the groundbreaking how-to manual on suing small town car lots entitled, "You Won't Screw Me Without Buying Me Dinner First!" She was in the running for the Nobel Peace prize until she found out about it and told the committee, "Peace this, B*tches!" while throwing up what can only be described as Polish gang signs. She can be found most often in her war room swilling Absolut and Tweeting like a crazed hermit in solitary confinement. She's devoted to her fans, followers and anyone who takes this bio seriously, as the only part that's true is the sentence about vodka and Twitter. And possibly the passive-aggressive notes.

A romance story with themes of second chance romance or if a fresh new romance is what our heroine Carly needs.Falling in love with a rock star is never easy, we all know this from reading romance books, but also long distance well that is a double whammy to relationships. Thrown in the theme of second chance and i will pick up virtually any book, at some points the book felt very similar to others i have read. However and this is a big point a twist gives this story a good jolt and makes it much more than what you think it will be. First book i have ever read by this author and i enjoyed it because of the twist that threw me.

HASH(0x9c61e8a0) out of 5 stars Hooked from page one... 16 July 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Buy one for yourself, buy one and give it as a gift. This story needs to be shared with the masses. A fantastic read that encapsulates a very heartfelt love story of how "girl meets boy", in a way that happens only once in a lifetime, giving way to the hope that crazy dreams coming true is indeed possible. A story that breathes life into such realistic characters, you cannot help but want for more.

HASH(0x9c927258) out of 5 stars Fantastic Read! 18 July 2013
By Kristin Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great story that kept my attention throughout. I didn't want to put it down but my 8 year old, 10 year old and my husband were demanding meals and stuff. :) Carly is a great character that could be a friend of mine. Her relationships and experiences are relatable and interesting to share. Trey is a great guy who any woman would be thrilled to date, the perfect guy to help Carly. Josh was a fantastic first love interest. Can't wait for the second book and share more of their lives. Thanks Mel for writing an enjoyable summer read.

HASH(0x9ce0b774) out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - great debut novel!! 22 Mar. 2015
By Up All Night Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a debut novel and I have to say I enjoyed it.

The story begins in 2003, when Carly is heading back home for her 10 year High school reunion.

As she travels back she flashes back to her high school years.

Carly - the average teenage girl, who just wants to go as far from home when college comes. She lives with her mother, who is a pushover, and an overbearing step father. She is the teenager we all remember being, posters of the latest and greatest boy band on our wall. For Carly it was the South Station Boyz. She was infatuated with Josh, the lead singer of the band.

She talks her mom and step dad into letting her go to Chicago for the weekend to look at a college. While there, she makes friends and they talk her into going to the clubs for the night and low and behold she has a chance meeting with Josh. I know, I know, you are thinking, please, a pop star falls in love with a “regular” girl. But this book was so much more than that.

Josh was a nice guy, he just danced with Carly, talked to Carly, enjoyed her company. And yes, their weekend together is a whirlwind, but there was no BDSM, crazy sex, or drugs. Just some innocent time together and maybe a kiss or two. It was refreshing. To read a book that showed us the innocence of teenage infatuation and love.

We follow their relationship through the years and watch as they grow and even grow apart. The metamorphosis of their friendship, love affair and life is beautiful to watch. This book is a refreshing change to many books on the market today. There is no bdsm, no alpha male, (yes there is a rock star but he’s not really a jerk) and it was so nice to read this sweet story about real life.

I always enjoy an epilogue that brings everything full circle. Beautiful debut novel! 3.5 stars

HASH(0x9c6591ec) out of 5 stars You won't want to miss out on this series 24 Mar. 2015
By T London - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Do you remember those days (if you were raised in the 80’s) where you would sit in front of the TV watching MTV just praying for the singer who stole your heart would come on the screen and sing just to you? That one person in a band that made your heart go wild? Lying in bed at night, dreaming of what it would be like to be the Mrs. to that sexy singer? Well Mel Henry gave us the reality to that dream in this book.

Carly Cooper came face to face with the man of her dreams when she saw Josh McCarthy singing on stage. She was 18 and the sparks flew quickly between them the moment their eyes met. Going forward with her dream she began to believe that they would have a happily ever after, but she failed to realize she will be sharing this man with the thousands of other girls who believe they have the same chemistry as she does, they just need that chance with Josh.

His band is gone a lot on tours, he lives in East, she is a Midwest girl, distance and time is going to be an issue for them but what he feels is real for her. Two young people, living in a world with demanding commitments, they don’t have an easy road. Eventually they drift apart, the calls stop, the visits stop and soon the memories of those few months are all they have.

Fast forward a few years and they meet again. This time they have more maturity, success and careers set to base a relationship on. Instead of time and distance being the obstacle, they now have dedication to their career dreams. Love for their jobs, love for each other will only keep them together OR drive them apart.
A major event happens to Carly that will leave her a different person but during that event Trey comes into the picture. Will she give up her dream with Josh for reality with Trey? How do you fall out of love with the one who invaded your dreams since you were a teenager?

I loved this story, it just put me back to the 80’s when I used to dream about marrying Jon Bon Jovi and planning a fantasy life with fame, fortune and exotic places that we would travel. She gave me a greater appreciation for the women who love those men. I also found that the emotional intensity in which she created made me suffer along with Carly and Josh during the downs in the relationship and cheer in the bright times between them. You can tell they were meant for each other but life didn’t give them the hand they expected and they weren’t able to figure it out the first time.

The story is written smoothly and once you start, it is hard to put down, not because there is a lot of intense suspense but because the reader can relate to the characters, they can empathize with the scenes and she does a fabulous job at telling the story that will touch the readers heart.

HASH(0x9c619cd8) out of 5 stars Gifted by author in exchange for an honest review. 24 Mar. 2015
By Bookaholic and More Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Carlene Cooper was your average teenager. Average, that is, except for her relationship with Josh McCarthy, member of teen mega-group, South Station Boyz. Young love blossomed at a chance meeting when Carly was a senior in high school and Josh was just discovering what stardom really meant. Despite their chemistry, it was no surprise to anyone when their very different lives took very different paths a few months down the road. Years later, their paths cross again, and they must decide if the spark they felt back then is strong enough to rekindle. Josh has built a name for himself in show business, but Carly, too, has planted roots as a journalist in New York City.

Will they be able to successfully merge their lives and overcome the obstacles that drove them apart a decade earlier? Just as she comes to the decision that will change their lives one way or the other, Detective Trey Foster enters her life unexpectedly, and Carly is faced with another choice. Will she choose the man she's spent her whole life loving, or will she push it aside for a chance at happiness out of the spotlight?

*I really enjoyed this story. It sure didn’t end like I expected it to. I really like it when books don’t end like you think they will. The entire time I read this book I thought I knew what was going to happen but I was way off.

I really liked Josh and Carlene together. They made a great couple. Everything that happened in this book happens to your regular everyday people all the time. I liked how real the characters seemed. I felt like I could walk out of my house and meet a Carlene Cooper on the streets. Those are my favorite characters. Mel Henry has a new fan right here. Her writing is amazing. The book was fast paced and I could believe it was over when I hit the last page.

I was drawn into the story from page 1. I kept turning the pages wanting to know what was going to happen next. I had a couple questions throughout the book and luckily they were answered by the end. I highly recommend this book.
