Years in the cutthroat L.A. music industry have Kit Maggio yearning for love and acceptance in her hometown, Audubon Springs.

Will she ever find what she needs?

Vince Iuliano never imagined he'd be a single dad. Vowing no woman will ever again break his daughter's heart, he focuses on providing a happy and stable home. But when the love of his life rents the house next door, can he take a chance on happiness?

Vince never forgot Kit. Setting out to earn her forgiveness, they fall back into the rhythm of love and heat, much like the songs they wrote as teens. When L.A. calls, will Kit go, or stay and write her greatest love song?

Kit ran down the stairs with a large bag flung over her shoulder. “Hey, Kit, wait up!” He grabbed a fresh to-go cup of coffee off the front porch and headed for her car.

“We’re not going to do this, are we?” She opened her car door then held out her hand like a stop sign.

“Do what?”

“This…this neighbor thing.” She gestured between their houses. “Seeing you every morning and every night will seriously cramp my style.”

Seeing her every morning and every night might suit his style just fine since she always looked so damn beautiful. Her hair was damp and she’d tied it up in another one of her messy ponytails. Again she wore no makeup. She was adorable and sexy in a messy, natural beauty way.

“I was just going to ask about the bathroom faucet.”

“It’s just fine.” She tossed her bag inside the car.

“Good. Coffee?”

She eyed him through narrowed eyes before taking it. “If you’re trying to get on my good side so I’ll call the ladies off, you’re mistaken.”

He stepped forward, resting one hand on the hood of her Jeep and the other on the door, effectively barricading her in. “Can’t you even give me some words of advice? It would be the neighborly thing to do.”

“Advice to scare the ladies away?” She smirked.

He nodded and winked.

“I wouldn’t wink for starters,” she said in a sharp tone.

“Okay, no winking.”

She sighed, rolled her eyes, relenting. “And don’t offer them anything like a beverage or food. That’s typically seen as an invitation.”

“Got it.” He nodded at the cup of coffee in her hand.

She shook her head then ducked inside the Jeep to stash the cup.

“Anything else?”

“Yeah…don’t bust out the guitar. If you do, then they won’t ever leave you alone,” she said this with a hesitant smile and blushed.

His heart nearly stopped in his uncertainty of how to respond. She looked so hopeful and he’d already disappointed her. What would she say if she knew the truth? “Good to know, but no worries. I don’t play anymore.”

Her smile turned into a look of distress. “What? Why?”

“I don’t know, I just don’t.” He shrugged as if to say it was no big deal, lying to them both.

“That’s the worst thing I’ve ever heard.”

“Why? I was never like you.”

“Stop! Just stop right now.” She held up a hand to silence him. “I can’t do this.” She motioned between the two of them. “I’m going to be late for work.” She got in the car and peeled out of the driveway without looking back.
