The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes (Paperback)
Toni Bennette is a ridiculously talented musician who is more comfortable behind the scenes than in the spotlight. When an opportunity presents itself for her to join the Lillys, an up-and-coming band of equally talented women, she has to decide what her dreams actually are and what she’s willing to do to achieve them. The fact that her estranged childhood crush is the band’s manager only complicates things... Articulated in compelling prose and filled with rich characters, THE GIRL WITH STARS IN HER EYES is a delicious slow-burn romance that is ultimately a story about forgiveness, family, and friendship. I truly adored everything about this book!— Lucy
Her name's Antonia Toni Bennette (yeah, she's heard all the jokes before) and she's not a rock star. Neither are the Lillys--not yet. But the difference between being famous and being almost famous can be a single wrong note...or the start of something that'll change your life forever.
Growing up in dive bars up and down the East Coast, Toni Bennette's guitar was her only companion...until she met Sebastian Quick. Seb was a little older, a lot wiser, and before long he was Toni's way out, promising they'd escape their stifling small town together. Then Seb turned eighteen and split without looking back.
Now, Toni's all grown up and making a name for herself in Philadelphia's indie scene. When a friend suggests she try out for a hot new up-and-coming band, Toni decides to take a chance. Strong, feminist, and fierce as fire, Toni B. and the Lillys are the perfect match...except Seb's now moonlighting as their manager. Whatever. Toni can handle it. No problem. Or it wouldn't be if Seb didn't still hold a piece of her heart...not to mention the key to her future.
