THE HARDEST SET by Karolyn James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
we're back with willow son and this time it's Van who has to face the music, or rather face his past!
he's conflicted as they get and booze seems to be the only thing lessening the emotional pain it still causes. when the band has a mandatory appearance Van does his best to stay away from everyone. his first encounter is knocking over one of the waitresses, when he makes eye contact something inside him stirs. not sure if it's good or bad, he can't put her out of his mind.
natalie, the waitress, is thankful for her friend giving her this job, specially now she's on the verge of being evicted after loosing her art teaching job and being on an emotional downer herself after breaking up with a cheater. she being the one who he cheated his wife with and once she found out, kept seeing him.
some unseen power keeps pulling them together and giving them situations where both of them have to confront their past, willingly or not.
if you want the nitty gritty about Van and Natalie you just have to get the book and dive in head first.
loved this from start to end, another part of willow son that faced the music, now i'm curious for the next one!

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
