I’ve always loved Zander Brockman in some shape or form. The boy who lived next door for the first seventeen years of my life has been my best friend, my confidant, my first crush, and my first love. I trusted him with my life and my heart. When he smiled at me I knew everything was going to be okay…
Until it wasn’t.
I haven’t seen that girl in seventeen years, and I’ve missed her every damn day. I knew I wasn’t good enough for her, so the night before I left with my bandbrothers for California, I stole a night with her. I lived off those memories. There hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I haven’t wanted to talk to her just one more time, but I knew she deserved a better man than me. Now, after seeing her again, I realize that I didn’t care if she should have a better man. My feelings were still as strong as they have ever been for her. I wanted to be with her…
But she hated the very sight of me.
***Contains Mature Content***
Zander is 19 and Annabelle is about to turn 17. She's the girl next door who sneaks into Zander's window at night to feel safe. What is going on at Annabelle's home is dysfunctional and she is afraid to tell her brother Noah because of what he might do.
Zander is really worried about Annabelle's safety and has to tell Noah. Then things get better for everyone but Noah leaves OtherWorld for a solo career in Country Music and OtherWorld finds Axton Cage which is the perfect singer for their band. After Axton joins the group they are quickly snached up and on the way to being ROCK GODS.
OtherWorld leave Tennessee for California. Zander leaves Annabelle with a promise that he will come back for her and when she graduates he will take her with him. But Fame has it's downfalls and Zander realizes even more how much Annabelle is better off without him ruining his life. So he never calls, never picks up the phone, never even wants to hear her name again.
17 years later there is a tragic accident with Gabriella. Liam's love interest and Annabelle's client. Annabelle is thrown back into all of the men of OtherWorld's lives. She grew up with these guys and misses them all but she is not ready to see Zander again after he broke his promise and never even could give her a reason for the silent treatment that shattered her heart.
Zander knows how stupid he was letting Anna go. He still loves her with all his heart and now wants her back. An unexpected surprise shows up and Zander realizes just how bad he screwed up.
Zander pushes his way back into Annabelle's life and she is not really protesting that hard to keep him away. Annabelle sees the potential for a relationship but can she forgive the rocker for all that has happened between them.
Good story between the two main characters. I think the 17 years of no one at all in Annabelle's life is a little unrealistic but maybe that is just me.
