I never learn my lesson.
And I always want what I can’t have.
When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.
I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.
It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.
Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.
Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.
I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.
This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.
This time, I’m staying away.
And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

With bated breaths, we were all wishing and hoping for Reese’s own story after witnessing the outcome of the Duet. With fingers crossed and time on our time on our side, we got our wish and the countdown to his happily ever after began. After all of the heartbreak and drama, this man was going to find the love of his life but the biggest question was, who was going to be the woman that would steal his heart?

“She was the light I thought I’d never see again, the purpose I thought I’d lost forever”. 

It’s been two years since Reese’s world was crushed by a woman whom he worshipped. Two years since he’s heard those dreaded two words of “I’m sorry” from the lips of someone he would’ve laid down his life for. Two years and the heartache is still there, the wound is still fresh, and those shared moments have now turned into distant memories he wishes he could drown out. Whoever said that some love was painful and sacrifices were endless, were not wrong in that assessment. 

Being a piano teacher and player has been Reese’s saving grace through this messed up turmoil. Every note played was like a balm for his soul, every melody and music sheet, made the pain a little bit more bearable but it was always there in the background silently waiting but letting you know that it’s presence is going to be known one way or the other. When he’s ask to help out his Boss’s niece who’s recovering from a strained injury, life as he knows it is going to be filled with a string of firsts.

Sarah Henderson has gone through a traumatic year to say the least. Hoping for a fresh start by staying with her Aunt and Uncle, she is now being taught by one of the pianist of her time. Working closely with your instructor is fine but falling for him? That’s frowned upon. With both of them holding secrets of their own and a past that they can never seem to escape, how will these two lost souls find their missing piece in each other?

“I knew he saw the same pain in me that I saw in him. And maybe that was the only reason we saw it all-because we lived it. You had to understand what that felt like to be able to recognize it, like there was an exclusive club for the eternally heartbroken”. 

I normally don’t do this in my reviews but I feel like I need to address this first before I go any further. I was given a warning about the prologue by a very good blogger friend of mine and because our emotions are 90% of the time different, I overlooked that warning and thought that it was going to be nothing. I was wrong. I never saw it coming and my heart broke!! That moment solidified the book and changed every single character that was a part of the story. It was raw, real, heartbreaking and we felt the guilt and the anger and frustration as if it was our own. Not only do I applaud this author for writing this, she has managed to capture the true essence and stages of emotional turmoil.

Now back to my review: It was no surprise that I loved Reese in the previous two books but I fell for him more in this one. Knowing that this was his journey to finding love and having peace when he was faced with so much turmoil made me root for him even more. I loved his strength but I admired his vulnerability. Sarah was his perfect match and I’m glad to see that everything came full circle. 

If you’re a fan of this author’s work, then this one is not to be missed.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
