The Rock Season
by R.L. Merrill

Stevie Wilson is about to welcome a new life into an unsure world. Estranged from the father of her unborn child, she turns to her love of attending concerts with her vivacious best friend to deal with the stress and uncertainty. As a teacher and blogger, she counts on the magic of the music to ease her troubled thoughts of what will come next. What she wasn't counting on was meeting a "savior" with fathomless, dark brown eyes.

Aaron McShane gave up a lucrative Silicon Valley career to live the dream of owning an independent music store in downtown Hayward. His responsibilities have kept him from finding and settling down with the right person, but he wouldn't have it any other way. With his bicultural, multigenerational family all under one roof and giving him grief, he takes on a second job doing security at his favorite venue so he can escape and be close to his first love: music. What better place, especially when one gets to rescue a pregnant damsel in distress with a gorgeous mane of fiery red hair?

These two music lovers are thrust together just when they each needed something to hold on to. Can their fledgling love withstand the pressures of family, grief, and violence? Music brought them together, will it help them heal together?

THIS NOVEL CONTAINS SCENES OF AWKWARD, GRAPHIC SEX, LOSS AND GRIEF, SURVIVING CANCER, INTERFERING GRANDMOTHERS, OBNOXIOUS TEENAGED TWINS, BULLYING, SENSELESS VIOLENCE, AND GROSS DISPLAYS OF HAIR METAL-ESE. NOT FOR THOSE UNDER 18.
