Lukas Zavrazin is sitting at his father's hospital bedside thanking God and the surgeon for saving him.  There was an attack at a meeting of Russian "families" and his father was shot.  Now his father is playing the guilt card by telling him to marry and make babies before it's too late.  
Dale Vaner is not as upset as she should be to be leaving her home and the man she was living with.  She shut her emotions down years ago.  Nobody can hurt her anymore.  
Our hero is a mobster and makes no excuses for it.  He loves his family deeply and will do anything to protect them.  
Our heroine is an independent hard working woman.  I don't think she realizes how lonely she is.  
This is a romance, but not your hearts and flowers kind.  The things that happen are not for the squeamish.  It is part of a series that I'm already addicted to.  You can easily read it on it's own,  but be warned.  Once you start this series you will want to read them all.  They are very exciting,  even if you might be terrified to put yourself in our heroines shoes.

Smoke and Lyrics, by Holly Hall. NA/Contemporary Romance Blog Tour & Giveaway.

Title: Smoke and Lyrics
Author: Holly Hall
Genre: NA/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2017


Country star Jenson King is accustomed to fighting battles and losing--in his career, in his love life, and with alcohol. Following his divorce, thousands, if not millions, of fans are counting on his comeback. But how does one find the spark of passion when it's long since burned out?
Lindsey Farrar wants nothing more than to prove herself as a music photographer. Fiery and independent, she'd work countless side jobs to fuel her dream rather than ride the coattails of someone else's name to success. After a chance encounter, Lindsey shakes up everything Jenson believes about life and that other four-letter word. 
After all he's been through, Jenson isn't willing to let anything meaningful slip out of his grasp. But Lindsey's determined to shine all on her own, and Jenson casts an enormous shadow.
