This is Hawke’s story. Throughout the other stories there were hints to the pain he was suffering from, yet the reader does not find out what is causing the pain until his story. While he starts as a selfish prick with no care for anyone else but himself, he quickly turns into someone that you want to take care of. He needs help. He refuses to get the help.
Enter Abby. As a student studying psychology she knows that Hawke is hurting and needs to get help to be able to move past it. What is not shared until partially into the story is Abby’s history and the pain that she is suffering from. The two of them together are amazing. Their feelings are obvious and openly shared. Yet, they hold each other at arms length. Not allowing the other into their safe circle, keeping secrets, and hurting each other over and over.
When it is revealed what Hawke’s real problem is I was not surprised. The topic of mental health is not easy. Yet Heather C. Leigh manages to write a story that does not take it lightly. She understands how serious the topic is and handles it with respect and care.
I recommend checking out this entire series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone yet are even better when read together.
The family in question is the band, and while they are not related by blood, they are connected and committed to each other in every way that could possibly count. These guys are their own support network and the love they share is beautiful to read.
This book is Hawke’s story – well not just him, it is him and Abby and getting this pair to a happy ever after is a long process.
Hawke has very little that he cares about and that includes himself – he is ambivalent about life, it is the means to an end but it means nothing, He has a past that he allows to eat away at him and as the story unfolds the reason for his almost masochistic behaviour is unfurled and I have to say while I don’t necessarily agree with the way he behaves, I do understand.
The story travels with Hawke as he grows, as Abby does everything she can to help him find a happiness that he is willing to accept but she is wasting her time, because until Hawke can open his eyes and see that he has to step up and sort his s**t out.
I loved Abby, the devotion that she had for Hawke was nothing short of exceptional. She had her own issues and she was doing everything she could to keep her past to herself, but how could she help the love of her life when she couldn’t help herself? I wanted more for her.
Sometimes loving someone as much as she loves him, means that you have to step away and that is just what she does, she accepts that they are toxic together, running themselves ragged trying to find a way to make what they have work, when they both know that they have too much baggage for that to be possible.
Will her drastic action be the catalyst that they both need to kick start their futures?Read more ›
Wow what an emotional read and rollercoaster of a ride that left me a complete wreck after. In fact in places I found it hard to read it was that emotional. Both Hawke and Abby have suffered in their past and really struggled with their feelings. Before they can be together and love each other they need to love themselves first. They both have a rocky road ahead of them but the chemistry and connection between them was electric.
I love a good rock romance and this was different and unique in its own way and I look forward to this authors next book.

Hawke Evans is the drummer for the grammy winning band Sphere of Irony, we've seen him in past stories always in the background and very mysterious. What we know is he lives his life on the edge with very reckless behavior and in this story we find out the demons he's been living with and hiding from everyone.
Abby Kessler is the sweet kinda naive best friend of Kate (Dax's wife) who is studying psychology, when she goes to a concert to see Sphere of Irony Abby is drawn to their bad boy tattooed drummer Hawke.
Abby and Hawke begin a whirlwind relationship the sexual chemistry is scorching but both are hiding past demons, and past guilt which ultimately tear them apart.
We see flashbacks of the past from these two characters and the find the reasons for their behavior, it is heart wrenching I was in tears I wanted to reach out and grab these two and hug them. I went through a roller coaster of emotions watching these two fall apart.
Abby tries to heal and fix Hawke but when things get out of hand and his behavior becomes much more reckless she ends things between them both.
Seven years later both Hawke and Abby are reacquainted through mutual friends we get to witness the bond these two still have for each other and watch how they work out their struggles. It's not an easy road by far, but with love and dedication and the path of healing themselves individually we get one of the most beautiful love stories.
I highly recommend this story.
"From the wreckage, beautiful things can grow."
The reasons for these feelings will be revealed in this story that spans over several years. I don't know exactly how long, but I'm guessing almost a ten year period. That's a long time to continue suffering; for Hawke, his family who loves him, and the girl (Abbey) who loves him so much she wants to fix him and take his pain away.
It takes Abby many years to finally realize that the only person who can fix Hawke, is Hawke. She can't be her best for him when she has her own past that she hasn't opened up about or dealt with either. They love each other fiercely, but they only end up hurting one another because she can't stop trying to make him better and he can't stop feeling unworthy. The most painful, but best decision Abby ever made was to remove herself from his life for good, not even attempting to be friends. That might be the only thing to cause both of them to hit rock bottom and search out the help they need. If they can learn to be healthy individuals, only then can they consider being in a healthy relationship.
As painful as this was to read, it was completely worth it for the tears of joy at the end. I realize I've left out specifics of their story but I want to you to experience them just like the characters did in the book, not any sooner. Your heart will hurt, but will be mended again if you just hang in there until the end!
I What I love about Heather's stories is that she uses subject matters that you don't find in other books and she is able to do it in such a magnificent beautiful way that the subject matter is respected and embraced. She doesn't shy away from talking about serious subjects such as PTSD and mental illness but she also shows you how there is hope and how one can live through it!
I loved every minute of Hawke and Abby's story and even though their journey was long and the path was filled with a great deal of bumps along the way it was also beautiful. It shows us how we can persevere and how a happily ever after is not unattainable its just not always perfect! I think this just might be my favorite story out of the Sphere of Irony series and although I was desperately awaiting its release I am also sad to see it come to an end. Can't wait to see where Heather C. Leigh takes us in her next book!
Theirs is an emotional story, and if it doesn't tug the heartstrings of anyone reading, then the reader doesn't have a heart. It was a little difficult for me to read at times, because I see some situations faced on a daily basis, that are very similar to what our characters are going through. This story tugs on your heart, and puts you on a roller-coaster ride that takes you to the depths of human emotions and back again. In a word, some of the content is heavy. But it's oh, so worth the ride.
With all that said, this installment of the Sphere of Irony series is dramatic, sexy, heart breaking and full of hope.
Where do I begin? This was a very emotional read, both characters suffered from horrible accidents in their past. Both Hawke and Abby struggled with the feelings of guilt and neither one knew how to move past these feelings. This was a well written book and I just loved the characters. I read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend this one.
