I know what you're thinking. “You were such a jerk, Nick!” Believe me, I know I screwed up the best thing I had going in my life, but that was kind of my thing. I’d learned how to run cons before I could even form complete sentences, and I'd always been selfish. But I changed. Lila forgave me, my brother and I were getting along, and I was trying to make a name for myself in the music world.

At least that was what I was trying to do when I negotiated my way into the recording studio with pop superstar Sadie Sinclair. I thought it would be a piece of cake—charm my way into her heart and into her record label's good graces.

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I got mixed up in a web of lies, manipulation, and deception. A web that had me questioning my motives and desires altogether. 

Was the fame and fortune really worth the price?

“I'll see ya. Oh, and Gia,” I said before I closed her car door. “I never did officially thank you for your help in the studio the other day. Well, not without pissing you off on the dance floor.” I paused to wink at her.
“You've got a good ear.  Your suggestions really did help Sadie's song,” I said, using the term loosely. “We make a pretty good team.”
“We kind of do,” she agreed with a grin as I shut the door.
I gave her a wave and ducked into the studio, disappointed.  Maybe after a few more friendly outings she would trust me.  I knew I could convince her to, but the thing was that, for the first time in my entire life, I wanted to earn someone's trust.  Hers.
And I had a problem. I knew myself well enough to know when a con was going sideways. My need to convince Gia I was a decent guy and earn her trust wasn’t about Sadie anymore. Not even a little bit.
It was about the little voice that sounded a hell of a lot like Lila in my head. The same one that pushed me to move from swindling money to earning it.
Fuck. I was developing a damn conscious.
How in the hell did that happen?
I had a sick feeling that I knew exactly how. It was nearly impossible to spend time with someone so completely humble and selfless and amazing without questioning what the hell I was doing with my life—and realizing that there were countless reasons that I deserved a self-centered diva like Sadie instead of a grown-ass woman with a gorgeously unforgettable and well-adjusted head on her shoulders.
I got back in the studio and threw myself into the work, refusing like hell to think about the beautifully breathtaking enigma that was Gia Grayson.  It was all I could do not to beat my head against the mixing board.

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand. Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination! Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
