Title HEADS CAROLINA
Author Grea Warner
Genre New Adult/Women’s Fiction
How did a sheltered girl from Carolina end up in a national scandal involving one of Hollywood’s most powerful music couples?
When want-a-be singer Bethany Opala tries out for a TV talent show, she is rejected. But then comes an amazing offer … a songwriter’s dream. Bethany has the opportunity to learn and develop her skills with top music manager, Ryan Thompson.
With a mutual passion for music and words, Bethany and Ryan’s writing partnership develops into something more … something love songs are written about. And while it isn’t wrong, it isn’t right, at least in the public eye.
Surrounded by secrecy and half-truths, Bethany doesn’t know how much she should put up with. Especially, when one more rejection could scar her for good. Will her decision to leave not only Ryan, but the music business and California, come down to the toss of a coin?
When I eventually walked into my room at the apartment house, my feet were heavy and my heart even more so. It would have been a smart idea to have stopped at the building’s dining hall first, as I hadn’t eaten since the toaster pastry in the morning … but I didn’t. I just flopped on my bed and pulled my dark hair out of the messy bun it had been in since I thought someone at the coffee shop had been looking at me a little too long. It could have been for a multitude of reasons besides a scandalous photo online, but I had decided to at least try to create a mini-disguise.
I took out my phone and started checking my social media. During the Uber ride from Ryan’s house, I had eliminated the very few photos I had on my sites, but I wanted to make sure there weren’t any comments or posts about the “other” photo. Relived that there weren’t, I had just started to search the web when there was a knock on my door.
My sigh and greeting were the exact opposite of my next-door neighbor’s exuberance as she bustled into the room. “So … who do you think is going to be the ‘it’ performance tonight? I like that Tisha. She has the lungs and the confidence. What does your man think?”
“He’s not my man.” I partially grumbled and made an effort to sit up.
She blew off my denial. “Whatever you want to call the reason you are never around here anymore. I’m just psyched to actually watch it with you tonight.”
I couldn’t take it anymore. I had been holding it all in. Not only that morning and the gut-wrenching admission I made to Ryan but the dramatic night before and, heck, pretty much since we first met. I brought my hands up to my face and began to downright sob.
“Crap, Bethany.” Willow’s voice instantly softened, and I felt her sit next to me. “What’s wrong? Is it your brother?”
“No.” I pushed out a puff of air and removed my hands from my face. “We haven’t heard anything yet besides the foot isn’t broken, so that isn’t what is causing the swelling. Sad when you want a foot to be broke.”
“What’s this all about, then?” She looked at my tear-stricken face.
It wasn’t a broken foot … it was my broken heart.
