Chasing Shadows by Melissa Speight
When struggling barmaid Mia Ryan is scouted from behind the beer taps of Dublin’s Temple Bar and placed on a flight to Los Angeles, she can hardly believe her luck. Years of struggling to become a musician have seemingly paid off. When she’s picked by lucrative Sixth String Studios to write songs for their biggest stars, she finally begins to feel at home among like-minded musicians, despite her haunted past. Then she meets Joel Coben. One of the biggest stars in the world and Sixth String Studios’ prized possession, Joel’s as famous as they come. He’s also one of the rudest people Mia’s ever met. Music eventually connects Mia and Joel, and slowly she begins to see behind the media-reluctant star to the man beneath. But can she trust her troubled past to someone who lives his life under the spotlight?
