Spending three weeks on a bus with your boyfriend, his rock band, and their entire tour crew: possibly a bad idea.
Spending three weeks on a bus with your ex-boyfriend, his rock band, and their entire tour crew: definitely a bad idea.
But with the contract signed and the gigs all booked, Roxanne Nadeau finds herself heading out on the road as the accompanying violinist for reigning rock gods Sherbrooke Station, despite being on less than cordial terms with their bassist.
Not that the situation comes as a surprise. Roxanne and Cole’s near-constant on/off status has become a longstanding joke among their friends, and while the eight years of history between the two might suggest that resistance is futile, Roxanne’s determined to make this breakup their last.
Cole’s equally convinced he can use the opportunity to win her back for good.
Some conniving band-mates, way too many long drives, and the insanity of tour life all turn the bus into a pressure cooker that would detonate even the most stable of relationships. The explosion is inevitable; it’s how much of themselves they can salvage from the rubble that Roxanne and Cole will need to figure out.
“You should quit.”
Somehow, I go hot and cold all at once. His voice is low, a rumble anyone else would have trouble picking up, but I feel every syllable reverberate against my skin. A cloud of smoke billows in my peripheral, and the only reason I can answer is because we’ve had this same exchange so many times it’s like a reflex.
“You should quit.”
He’s still holding the lighter out. I dip my head towards it, bringing the cigarette to my lips and inhaling as I touch its tip to the flame. The déjà vu is overwhelming. I close my eyes and I’m sixteen again.
This is how we met. This is how it happened. We always return here. We always circle back. Like the chorus of a song, we repeat and repeat and repeat
About Katia Rose
Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
