The day she becomes Keeley Chambers, Rosie Nyman ceases to exist, or so she tries desperately to believe. Only the piano knows the whole truth of her horrid childhood, and with it, she can let the demons run free.
In his corner of the world, Jude Villars is considered by some to be near royalty. In his own mind, he sometimes still feels like that scared kid who was thrust overnight into the cutthroat arena of multi-million dollar business deals.
Now a junior at Tulane University, Keeley is light years from the terrified little girl hiding under furniture, at least on the outside, inside, a flood of insecurities still rages. Right off the bat she knows she is no match for a man like Jude, although that does not stop her heart from nearly flying out of her chest each time he is near. Jude wears his confidence like a well-worn pair of jeans, which only makes Keeley more aware of how different they are. She has a past that she can never let taint his life, so walking away is something she must do for both of them.
This story comes with its own personal soundtrack, and if you listen with your heart, you will feel every note. Keeley expresses her rage, sorrow, and passion with her piano, but with Jude, she is able to communicate those feelings beyond her keys. The tragedies in Jude’s past help him understand her fears. He dares her to face the world head-on, and show everyone who and what Keeley Chambers really is.
