Emma's Playlist 
Evan Levesque Bio
Evan Levesque was born on the West Coast with a guitar practically in his hands. His father was a drummer in a band, but Evan was born and the dream changed. Evan’s passion came from his father, along with his natural talent for music. Evan wasn’t formally taught music, in fact, he doesn’t even know how to read or write sheet music. That doesn’t mean much because he can not only play guitar, but also bass, piano, and drums--all by ear. At sixteen him and three of his best friends set out to make a career for themselves, and that they did. By seventeen Evan’s band, Red Moon, had been picked up by a major label, by eighteen he was considered a pop-rock God and that’s when the rumors started. The bad boy was born. Evan’s tattooed and in a band, the perfect mix of everything your mother warned you to stay away from, yet he’s anything but what everyone says he is. It’s just an image--one forced on him by the publicists, the label and the media. Sex sells, and Evan is sexy as hell. At thirty he’s single, still doesn’t look a day over twenty-five (even if he’s forgotten to shave), and he feels out of touch with his music and himself. Then Emma Walker literally falls in front of him, and he can’t resist her kind smile and lack of swoon over him. Evan knows the risks he’s running by falling for a normal girl, especially for her, but he can’t help but be selfish after that first kiss. He’s hooked, she treats him like he’s normal and she loves him as much for his personality as for his music. Suddenly he finds himself loving the stage again, even though he can’t wait to get home to Emma. Evan’s never cared enough about someone to fight for them, but he’s willing to risk everything--including his career--to save Emma from her past. Evan’s got a hot temper and a kind heart; it’s not always the best combination.

Emma Walker Bio
Emma Walker was born in New England in a small town on the coast of Connecticut, and she hasn’t been much of elsewhere since. Her parents don’t recall a time she wasn’t writing as a child, that was always what they thought should would be...and she is--sort of. As a journalist for a local paper Emma feels her English degree is a flop, the creative writing concentration an even bigger flop, and she dislikes the assignments her day job often takes her on. Emma doesn’t complain, though, because she figures it’s her fault she let him win--him being the abusive ex-boyfriend that she only escaped after graduating high school. She doesn’t want to deal with the pain she created with her actions, and is deathly afraid if she picks up a pen again, for real, all of it will come flooding back. Then she rams into Evan Levesque in a gas station and somehow manages to find her tongue without drooling. He’s a normal person after all--just as normal as she is. When they hit it off Emma decides to do something she hasn’t even done with her family; she tells the truth about what happened. With Evan’s help Emma faces her fears head on, and she even finds the strength to stand up to the demon himself.


Emma Walker was a writer who'd lost herself to someone else's anger--who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.

Evan Levesque was a rock-god--the one all the woman wanted, but he'd never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.

With just one cup of coffee they'll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan's fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma's checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul--Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she's become because of it?
