Love Songs for Skeptics
Zoë Frixos is a successful music magazine editor, intent on restoring her paper to its former glory...despite those pesky closure rumors flitting about. Zoë decides to land the coup of the century, securing an interview with her notoriously elusive rock idol. But when faced with the arrogant publicist Nick Jones, a man who seems determined to ruin her career, Zoë wonders how she's ever going to save the paper she loves.
That's when she hears the news that upends everything: Simon has come back to town. Simon, her best friend and boy next door, the one who Zoë fell in love with at thirteen, who she's never quite moved on from. And now, she's finally determined to tell him how she feels.
As Zoë barters for a career-saving interview, she must decide who is worth fighting for, changing everything Zoë thought she knew about love, music, and the power of second chances.
