As Micah starts finding his rhythm, life throws him a different beat.
ONE AND ONLY
Hale Street #7
Releasing March 7th, 2017
Drummer Micah Sullivan lost his music and his dreams when his wife died unexpectedly. In the emotional aftermath, he quit his successful country band and pushed away his family and friends. Three years later, he’s opened a music shop on Hale Street in Nashville and tells himself he’s content trying to make it a hit. What he failed to consider is that success requires connections—including the very ones he turned his back on.
Sloan McGuire is up for a new challenge…never realizing it might lead to heartbreak. When she takes a job as entertainment manager at a bar not known for its music, she doesn’t bargain for running into Micah, whose late wife was her best friend. She can tell within minutes that he’s still grieving. Out of love for her friend, she attempts to reconnect with the reclusive drummer. Falling for him isn’t in the plans, though—not only because he was married to her friend but because she’s been second-best before, and she never wants to play that role again.
Micah started a music store in Nashville after losing his wife and quitting his band. He doesn't expect his wife's best friend to show back up in town. Sloan is ready to settle in Nashville and is booking acts for a locally owned bar. When they crash back into each other's lives their attraction is undeniable but both are afraid.
I loved Sloan. She's caring, spunky and bold. Someone you'd want to be your friend. Micah is putting himself through hell punishing himself for not being home when his wife passed. He feels for others but would rather protect them from himself. The two are a perfect pair in learning to love and heal hurting hearts together. If you enjoy a romance that will sweep you off your feet I highly recommend One and Only. I'll definitely be reading more of Amy Knupp's stories soon.
Amy Knupp is the author of contemporary romance, a freelance copy editor for Blue Otter Editing, and a freelance technical writer. While the collection of professional hats she wears sounds a bit scattered and broad, the common thread among all of them (perhaps the little ball on top of each hat) is the written word. She loves words and grammar and meaty, engrossing stories with complex characters.
Amy lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two teenage sons, four cats, and two box turtles. She graduated from the University of Kansas with degrees in French and journalism. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, breaking up cat fights, watching college hoops, and annoying her family by correcting their grammar.
