Fighting for redemption . . .
I've lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I'd ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I'd made one promise—a promise I'd intended to keep. I've broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.
Can she love me, even if she can't forgive me?
Learning to move on . . .
Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process.I may never love anyone the way I've loved him, but at least I won't spend my life wondering "what if." We had our one night and he walked away. I'm beginning to move on, but my brother's wedding and a battle of the bands are about to throw us together again.
Our band is getting a second chance, but I don't know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?


Missing Dixie – Caisey Quinn
5 stars

Okay, so there’s no doubt that CQ writes a darn good book. Missing Dixie is a different story, though. It’s not good, it’s incredible.

At 25% in I messaged her: Effing Gavin has me in tears. At the end I messaged her: I’m sitting here squalling. I couldn’t help it, y’all. This sexy, brooding, tortured drummer boy had me in tears and his story just grabbed my heart, wouldn’t let go. 

I love Gavin beyond description. He’s the right amount of alpha but with a sexy sweetness to him, unlike any other, when he’s with Dixie. He’s had a life you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. He’s lived in crack houses, gone without food, and lived in darkness for most of his life. Until he met the Lark siblings. They took him in, never judged, and opened their hearts to him. And he to them.

Dixie has loved Gavin for most of her life. She’s strong, beautiful, and brave. She knows how dark and dangerous he can be but that doesn’t matter to Dixie. She just wants him, all of him Gavin has kept his life and his secrets from Dixie and he’s terribly afraid of what will happen when she learns the truth. Is Dixie ready for all the answers she’s gonna get? And what’s more, is Gavin ready for everything that comes from his honesty?

CQ takes us on hell of a journey in Missing Dixie. We visit the past and make a trip to the future. We learn why certain things happened in the previous two books and how they brought us to the ending of this book. There are parts of this book that just hurt. The pain, the darkness, the hurt; they are all so tangible. I cried. A lot. I couldn’t pick up another book right away because I just keep thinking Gavin and Dixie and all they’ve been through and how their story was one of the most tragic and beautiful stories I’ve ever read. 

This series is one of my all-time favorite series. From the beginning of Leaving Amarillo to the ending of Missing Dixie, this group of people have owned my heart. We get to catch up with Dallas and Robyn and we got to see what life threw at them. Some funny moments there, guys. We even get the future of Gavin and Dixie; have a tissue ready for that my friends. 

I don’t know what Caisey is working on right now but I will tell you I can’t wait for it. She never fails with her words, her stories, nor her characters.

Favorite Quotes:

~~ "I want you to be careful around me. But one day, one day I will get my shit together, I will have something real to offer you, and hand to God, I will be someone you can trust again."

~~ "Dixie Lark was like my exact brand of heroin, the perfect combination of everything forbidden. She cured me and destroyed me with one taste."

~~ "I know you better than you think I do. I want all of you. The light and the dark and the broken parts." "I am all broken parts," he says into my hear. "That's all I am." "We are all broken. That's how the light gets in."

Except #:  The constant heaviness I carry in my heart lightens a little. I am happy for Dallas and Robyn. I’m excited to be a part of their big day and literally ecstatic about becoming an aunt to my future nephew. But . . . something about the anticipation of it all, the impending burden of necessary smiles and laughter in the midst of my complete and utter devastation about having to face Gavin Garrison for the first time in months . . . It’s like getting the worst news of your life on the brightest, sunniest, clearest day of the year.
I’m a walking, talking, living, breathing storm cloud waiting to burst and rain on everyone else’s parade.
But I won’t. Because I can’t.
I had my chance. My one night. And even a little more than that. “Wait for me, Bluebird,” he’d said.
Apparently I should’ve asked for the specific details of just how long he intended to make me wait.
