He's a man who wants it all…if only he could have it....
Dreams of stardom took musician and firefighter Sam Marshall far from his Colorado roots. Starting fresh in Nashville hasn't been easy, especially after an injury on the job, but he's working his way to the Grand Ole Opry one open mike at a time, teaching at the fire station to make ends meet. Yet Sam's intentions are shaken when he meets the lovely owner of a local café.

About the Author
Meet Finn Leary
Brown hair (chin-length bob, curly)
Owner, The Right Note Café
Finn Leary has been more or less on her own from the age of 12, when she started waiting tables to help care for her younger sister and problems-riddled parents. Between work and school, she had very little time for fun or friendship, and spending so much time alone gave her ample opportunity to ponder how life ought to be, and holding on to what little respect she has left for them is a struggle, but she does her best for Ciara’s sake.
By the time she meets Sam, Finn has put her trust in just one other person: Pete Maxon. From the get-go, he became surrogate father to the entire Leary family, providing jobs and a place to stay…even when Misty and Connor repeatedly let him down. There isn’t another man like Pete, and when Finn loses him, she feels completely lost and alone…and more certain than ever that if she doesn’t take care of herself and Ciara, no one will. She’s furious with her parents—and every other self-centered wanna-be artist whose quest for stardom comes at such a high price, to themselves and those who rely on them.
So while Finn likes and admires Sam, she doesn’t want to, because it means putting her heart in someone else’s hands, someone who—like her parents—will eventually let her down. Unfortunately, time is the only true test of Sam’s sincerity. More unfortunately, Sam seems in a rush to bring future hopes into the present: Family, home, advancement in the department. Plus he hasn’t given up his dreams of performing. And in Finn’s score book, that’s two strikes against him.
Will her cynical viewpoint force him to hit strike three…even if it’s only in her own mind?
Finn Leary’s motto: “Trust is like a vase; once broken, it’s never the same.
