Vega’s rocky introduction to the music industry leaves her second-guessing the decision she’s made to follow her dreams and her first love from New York to Los Angeles. Borne’s alarming distance has caused her eyes and interest to wander onto someone new, someone bittersweet…Leigh Knight.
With a complexion as dark as his last name and undeniable charm, Vega is instantly smitten when Leigh takes her underneath his wing at Echo Records. Vulnerable and oblivious to his intent, Vega falls head over heels until Borne confesses his dilemma and she’s torn between choosing her career, or the man who revived her heart and willed her to love again.
Once Vega and Borne realize they’re destined to be together, there’s only one obstacle standing in their way. Nehmani Echols is on a mission to do two things — look down from the top of the music game with no one but her family standing beside her.
