Title: My One Despair
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Romance/Women's Fiction
Once, they shared one soul. Can hope heal years of despair and broken dreams?
Music is all I know. It saved me as a kid. It brings me fame and fortune now. But what am I, the famous Gage Rodin, doing at night when I’m on the road and can’t sleep? Googling her. Tess Hades, the girl who still haunts my dreams and my lyrics.
She arrived like a quiet storm, a wild thing with eyes guarded to the world. But she let me into the deep end of her beautifully broken soul. When we were together, life was simple. When my life got complicated, she did what she thought was the right thing. She let me go.
While she’s been out saving the wild creatures of the world, my muse has fed on the memory of our life together. But now everything in my world is shifting again, and not in a good way. I’m not certain I have the strength to bear another devastating loss, so I find myself reaching for something as rare and elusive as the perfect song lyric.
The one woman who never gave up hope…
I have yet to find a book by Claudia Burgoa that I haven't liked but this book, this book has to be my absolute favorite of all of them!!! I LOVE TESS AND GAGE! Both are so strong in their own ways and even thought there was a part of the book where I was cursing, yes cursing Claudia (you'll know when that was when you read it) I knew there had to be more to the story then we were seeing.
Tess has not had an easy life and if you read My One Regret you know what I mean, and for those of you who haven't read it yet, you should, she was emotionally abused by her mother and it almost cost her dearly. Thankfully she is living with her father now and is attending college in parts of this book since it does span over eight years.
Gage, WOW just WOW, now ladies he is one hot mama but doesn't let it go to his head in fact he doesn't even play into it...like at all! Gotta love that. He is sweet and would give his life for his family. Gage and Tess are great together, their chemistry is amazing but its more than that, they just work even with the nine year age difference....which Tess's father isn't to crazy about.
This story pulled a lot of emotions out of me, I was laughing one minute while crying the next, and like I said earlier I was even cursing up a storm which is something I don't do so you know she had to hit a nerve with something that happened. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good contemporary romance that has some angst and a lot of spice. Happy Reading!!!
