Maybe-3D-Paperback-eReader Emily Portman loves her job. A writer for Breakout! Magazine, she shadows and showcases up-and-coming bands. When her next assignment takes her to Austin, Texas, she can’t wait to add the city to her map of places she’s visited. Places she’s left without looking back. Her plan is to keep moving on, and the last thing she needs is a man holding her back. She’s not going down that road again. Tyler Macy is stuck in a rut. Despite his exceptional talent as a musician, he has chosen to take a backseat with his music and let others grab the limelight. Wounded and mistrustful, he doesn’t appreciate his friends’ efforts to bring him back to center stage. Emily comes onto the scene and sees his full potential, but he fights to stay in the shadows, shutting her out before she can add to the scars another woman gave him. For Tyler to find his music again, he needs to accept the help that Emily and their friends offer. When he discovers that his muse lies underneath Emily’s skin, it is still not enough to keep her from walking away. Neither will admit what they really want until it is too late. Emily is once again thrown in Tyler’s path when she is assigned to join them on tour. Despite the pain in his past, Tyler sees that she is worth it, even if she’s stolen both his heart and peace of mind. In order for them to be together, they both must discover whether the music and their passion are enough to overcome the obstacles that separate them. Maybe finding love is worth the risk.

4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

I became a fan of Amber L. Johnson after reading Puddle Jumping which is probably one of my favorite books ever.  So when I saw that she was writing a rock star romance I could not wait.   Maybe is about two broken people learning to find love again.  And one of them happens to be a rock star who is also finding his way again. 

Emily has a great job working for Breakout magazine where she basically showcases new bands and musicians.  She loves her job and it has become her main foucs.  She is not here to have fun or find love or even a one night stand.  She tried the love thing once and that didn’t end very well.  Her focus is her job.   Her next assignment is in Austin where she meets her new landlord Tyler Macy.  Now there is definitely an attraction between the two of them until Tyler continues to palys his rums late at night, keeping Emly up and pissing her off.  And to make matters worse, it ends up that he is the drummer of the new band that she is going to be working with.  Yeah this is going to be good.

Tyler is the drummer for this band.  At ne point he was the lead singer but since getting his heart completely crushed by his ex he seems to be in the shadows rather than being front and center. He has lost his writing mojo and has ot been able to write anything meaningful in a few years. But then Emily come along and changes everything.  When he is with her it all comes back to him.  She is his muse and as long as she is with him he can create the music that he has been longing to write.  But as much as Emily is his muse and as much as he feels the attraction and pull, it also scares him.  He is afraid to open up his heart to someone again.  But at the end of the six weeks, Emily’s job is done and she is supposed to go back home and start a new assignment.  So what happens then?

Emily and Tyler are reunited again and the feelings that they had for each other is still there.  Along with I think some regrets.  Now that they are working together gain will the sparks that they once had be lit again?  Will they both be able to put their past behind them and focus on the future and and each other?

I loved these characters.  This book was a rock star book but I think a bit different than I expected.  This was about the two of them getting their second chance.  They had both been hurt by love before and were afraid to feel again.  But there was no denying the feelings that they had for each other.  This  is a love story between two people overcoming the fears f their pasts but also dealing with the obstacles that they face while Tyler is on tour.  I loved these two together.  I loved what Emily brought out in Tyler.  How she helped him find his way back to the one thing he loved which was music.  After reading this book the cover for this books fits it perfectly.  There is a part of the book regarding music notes which I loved.  This book is mainly told from Emily’s point of view with chapters being short journal entries from Tyler which give us just the right amount of his thoughts to understand him.   Another wonderful job by Ms. Johnson

Maybe-3D-Book-Stack-1Walking toward him is like trudging through the deepest mud, but I hold my head high, my hands in my pockets and strides long. When I'm less than a foot away, his head turns toward me without lifting his chin, and he looks up from under his brows. The white smoke from his cigarette causes his eyes to nearly close before he pulls it from his lips and exhales upward into the air. I'm struck by how incredibly handsome he is in black wool and new jeans. I want to know if his skin feels hot under his clothes and if his back feels the same when I scratch fingernails across his spine. My fists clench in my coat pockets at the thought. This is going to be so much harder than I'd been prepared for.

AuthPhotA true child of music, Amber's parents surrounded her with the loudest beats they could find, molding her into a girl who found inspiration and meaning in lyrics and chords. Raised on John Hughes movies, Luck Dragons, and pirate ships, she dreamed of love and adventure. When Amber began to create her own world, she envisioned a place where Happy Ever Afters do exist. Since then, she has authored several romance novels, all of which focus on songs and the way they can touch people's lives. Music may not be able to fix a broken heart, but it can provide one hell of a soundtrack for healing. A full-time wife and mother with a full-time job, Amber finds her muse in everyday life and the people who bring her inspiration.      

Be sure to look for her other book!
