I never learn my lesson.

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

My Review…

Oh Ms. Steiner, I crown you the queen of angst! You have a magical talent to take a reader’s heart and mind and put them in a blender set on frappe!

I have loved Reese since the What He Doesn’t Know Duet. I was hoping a praying for his beautiful ending to go with his beautiful soul.

Ms. Steiner gives us this for Reese and so much more.

Sarah was the perfect soul to find Reese. She was tragically hurt, she has a beautiful soul and she is magical at the piano. She went through the absolute worst thing that can happen to a human and she was scarred, she was scared and she was determined to fulfill her dream despite it.

If you get the e-edition of this book, you are going to be blown away by the links to the music, interwoven in the story. I was listening and reading and it just made the story more epic, more real, more everything. Even if you are not a classical music fan, you will appreciate how much the music plays into the story.

You see past characters, and I swear I wanted to smack one in particular, I am not going to say who, but believe me you are gonna want to also! Reese is trying hard to move on from the past and this person keeps dragging him back!! I was yelling “Stop it” every time!

Reese and Sarah heal each other through music, through love and through friendship and trust. Their story is going to move you, just like it moved me.

A true testament to fantastic writing, this book is going to give you all the feels, in epic Kandi Steiner fashion!
